As you run about this weekend doing things you shouldn't, keep this in mind, especially you ladies: Cavity searches are all the rage these days in police circles. The Daily Busines Review's Forrest Norman tells us the sordid story of Jessie Thodde, a 22-year-old Cheesecake Factory waitress who made the mistake of driving with an expired tag. Somehow she wound up in jail with a latex-sheathed hand probing her nethers. The leading proponent of cops doing such deeds is none other than that old bugger in Miami, John Timoney. Luckily DBR is helping to make sure Timoney and his police keep their hands where they belong -- and, no, that's not around the throats of peaceful protesters.
