Lasalle County officials say the jail guards who stripped a woman arrested for drinking and driving … did nothing wrong.

Jail video shows Dana Holmes being booked after a DUI arrest in May.

Three male deputies and a female deputy are seen removing all her clothes in a cell.

Officials said she was not strip searched and left naked in a cell.

They said she was placed in a padded cell to calm down after kicking an officer twice.

Holmes is suing the county for violating her civil rights by stripping her without legal justification.

    These cops are out of control! They can't do what they damn well please because they're wearing a "uniform" – it's not a uniform, it's really a disguise. They're SCUM, disguised as officers. Every single one of these morons needs to be FIRED. This is unacceptable – the video shows excessive force, 4 officers really? Pinning her down and ripping her clothes off? Nothing wrong with that? REALLY? Would it be nothing if it was your daughter? I wonder

    Well, they got some explaining to do. The problem is the men…… It should have been women only when they stripped her naked. Jumping on her and hold her down is one thing, but there appears no hesitation to tear off her clothes AFTER she was controlled on the ground…..

      For some reason, the link isn't working. Just Google LASALLE COUNTY GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES TOP 100 SALARIES, and you will see what these clowns make to gang up your wives and daughters and rip their clothes off so they can feel like big men.
