*Don’t shoot the messenger, ‘K? We just couldn’t let this one go.
Talk about a WTF moment. Since when does a traffic stop call for a check of someone’s anus? This is a questions someone needs to ask officer Chris Medlin, who felt the need to pull Lakeya Hicks and her boyfriend Elijah Pontoon over after he noted their car had a paper tag, an offense that’s not illegal in South Carolina as long as the car is registered.
But instead of just giving the man a citation, for what I don’t know, but if he just had to do SOMETHING … the cop ran a check on the car and its passengers.
Still, nothing wrong.
Then the cop unleashes his K9 officer to sniff the car.
This is getting pretty time consuming, seeing as there are STILL NO RESULTS.
Now this is where you really begin to question these cops. Here is where you ask yourself questions like…Wait. What kind of freaks are we dealing with here?
I say this because the cop called for backup after he could find nothing in the car, and when they got there, it was like they were fulfilling some demented fantasy as a female officer went so far as to expose Hick’s breasts to the male officers according to a lawsuit filed by the couple.
But wait. There’s more.
Then Medlin, the original cop on the scene, decided he wanted to do a cavity search on the man, and began performing an anal exam in search of, what he claims on a recording,…crack.
Listen to what he says on the recording. It is very hard to understand this cop at times due to his thick dialect.
“We searched the car. There ain’t nothing in the car and on a search of him, up in his crotch by the butt, I felt something hard. I lifted his pants and pulled the back of his underwear down and I didn’t see anything but I didn’t get all the way up in there to get no vertical up shot. I just pulled his underwear back, but I didn’t see nothing. But it felt, he said it was a hemorrhoid. It ain’t no. .. it was a rock. It was a rock of crack. It’s gotta be a rock. He’s got it up in his butt.”
There has got to be a law SOMEWHERE on this level of intrusiveness. And by the officer, who claims he knows Hicks “history” from past run-in’s, saying things to him like, “You’re gonna pay for this one, BOY,” shows obvious racism and condescension.
Finally, knowing he has absolutely nothing left to pursue with these people, and obviously feeling his ego deflated, Medlin admits, “I got nothing else to go on. Nothing. Yeah we’re gonna have to cut him loose here.”
What a freaking insult to anything decent. This man, AND his cohorts, should be fired. There is not enough money in the world to satisfy the debt they owe this family.
