The Oakland Police Department's policy of strip searching suspects in public is under fire on civil rights grounds.
Until 2004, police could publicly search (and humiliate) anyone arrested on drugs or weapons charges.
The policy was changed to only allow such searches when there was reasonable suspicion someone was hiding something, but a federal judge ruled that practice unconstitutional by not requiring probable cause.
That suit also sought $1 million in damages, but the settlement offers $15,000 and would clear the department of admitting any wrongdoing.
And people wonder why the department has an image problem.
Jackson West can't believe what the police are thinking at times.
