Supreme Indecency (Limerick)

Chances are, you’ve heard about the latest Supreme Court travesty:

In a 5-4 decision, the court ruled against a New Jersey man erroneously arrested during a 2005 traffic stop for a fine he had already paid. Today’s ruling holds that even people arrested for minor offenses can be subjected to strip searches.

Supreme Indecency (Limerick)
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Thanks to Kennedy, Roberts, Scalia,
And their pals, cops can strip ya and see ya.
They don’t need any reason:
It’s strip searching season.
Our privacy’s gone! Mama mia!

    well..welcome to 2012..and the law of “just because I can”…..that should attract the right kinds of people into the field of law enforcement……

    We now have a Supreme Court that is writting laws that do not protect individual freedoms…….remember Orwell’s Animal Farm….when the animals ran out to check their rights…..and found it had been changed……

    Just because a supreme justice is granted a job for life…should not mean that in no matter how injust thier rulings…or criminal their actions…..they are untouchable….and can keep their position…without consequences……

    It’s the tattoo needles, really, according to the majority decision.

    Tat tools up ones bum is egregious crime,
    we guard against these for those doing time.
    a rapist unheedful’ll
    encounter a needle,
    and the pain that ensues is sublime.
