Madisonville, TX, requires search consent forms

Dec 22, 2006 Madisonville, TX, requires search consent forms

Until consent searches are outlawed, bravo to the three of five Madisonville, Texas, city council members who passed a law requiring written forms as a prerequisite for "consent" searches. This follows an earlier such order by the Austin, Texas, police chief. The article is here. Thanks to Grits for Breakfast for covering this item.

Bravo, also, to the American Civil Liberties Union for continuing to fight to put more teeth into this Madisonville law, including informing people of their right to refuse searches.
