In the Constitution of the United States, the Fourth Amendment explains that each person has the right to turn down any unlawful searches and seizures. Strip searches are definitely an invasion of personal space. Beings that Florence was only taken in to jail because an officer misunderstood some information, it was wrong to perform a strip search. A strip search may be a procedure that has to be done at the jail every time someone is brought in, for it is a bigger city. If an incident like that would happen in a smaller area, a strip search would not be needed. It would be too costly in a smaller area, opposed to a bigger city where they have the money for things like that. Individual searches may be a little more expensive, but I would be able to see why they would rather do an individual search over a group search. A group search is an invasion of personal space.
