This is the kind of thing some demented scientist might do to an animal in the course of performing some demented experiment. It's difficult to fathom this happening in 21st Century America.
The police detective supposedly said that after obtaining photos of the teen’s erect penis he would “use special software to compare" it to the photo on teen's cell phone.
Don't look so shocked. You've never heard of the special penis comparison software?
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg once objected to a strip search of a 13-year-old girl, noting that some other justices minimized the girl's humiliation. "They have never been a 13-year-old girl," she said. "It's a very sensitive age for a girl. I didn't think that my colleagues, some of them, quite understood."
I am hoping people like Justice Ginsburg speak up for this boy, and will recognize the humiliation of forcing him to sustain an erection for police officers and photographers. As if he were an animal.
