Some Ohio police are now facing an investigation over their treatment of Hope Steffey. She was arrested on misdemeanor charges and for some reason, was forcibly stripped of her clothes by both male and female officers. The video shows this quite clearly.
Even more bizarre is the sheriff’s attempt to explain this:
“…the policy requiring strip searches to be conducted by officers of the same sex as the prisoner didn’t apply because, while Steffey was stripped, she wasn’t actually searched.”
Why strip her at all, then? No wonder the blogger I got this story from said “Apparently, it was all just good fun.”
When you watch the video, notice something else-the officers leave without giving her any clothes or uniform to wear.
