At a special session of Arizona's Court of Appeals in April, judges heard arguments on whether a bag of methamphetamine had been legally seized by police, who had a search warrant but not the authority to inspect body "cavities." The bag had been partially protruding from a certain cavity, and an officer pulled it out. The defense lawyer argued that the only legal precedent involved items hidden between posterior "cheeks" (i.e., where contraband would not be so secured), and thus that pulling it out was an invasion of privacy. However, the prosecutor, claiming that the bag was in plain sight and would have fallen out eventually, asked rhetorically, "Where does the butt end and the anus begin? ... The buttocks is just the bell end of the trumpet, and I don't think you (judges), for constitutional reasons, want to go there."

I don't know about police, but in prison we are not allowed to remove an object like that from an inmate's butt. There is a trick though that will get it to drop naturally. We get them to squat down and cough. The butt checks fly open and out comes anything lodged up in there... usually. If we can see something but it doesn't come out, then we take the inmate to a medical faucility where a nurse removes the object.

How funny!

So, when an object does pop out when the inmate coughs, who is the unlucky soul that must pick it up! UGGY UGGY!

We have to put on some latex gloves before doing a strip search. So we can pick up a poo covered item. I have only found one thing up an inmates butt. Oddly enough it was a few rolled up cigerettes and some matches. Inmates are not allowed to take smokes on transfer buses or vans but they try to sneak em in any how.

I'm sure something partially protruding from a cavity is Probable Cause to search it :P

clothing pin
True, but I pity the poor cop who pulled it out. Sure hope he was wearing gloves and a clothing pin on his nose! :o(

The answer to your question
At the anal sphincter, AKA the asshole.

The anal sphincter separates the anus from the buttocks. Anything in the anus is behind the anal sphincter.

Live and learn!

Heh heh...What's a sphincter??!!

Re: The answer to your question
A sphincter is a circular band of muscles that can be contracted to close off an hole in the body or a hollow organ.

The iris of the eye and the muscles around the mouth and under the lips are both sphincters. There is a sphincter and each end of the stomach to regulate digestion and food flow.

Oh, and technically there are two anal sphincters, an internal and external. I am referring to the external one.

Is there not anything you don't know?! I think you're so damn intelligent!

:) It is one of the things my current G/F likes about me. That and I take the time to explain and if I don't know, go find out.

I'd love to have all their heads examined but you can't legally extract their heads out of their asses.
May. 23rd, 2007 04:27 pm (UTC)
And even when you attempt extracting their heads out legally, you'll find it's still impossible!

Take me for example! heh heh

I'd have been kicked out due to uncontrollable laughter!

That's a question of the ages. Didn't Socrates first coin that term?
May. 23rd, 2007 05:23 pm (UTC)
I love all the Socrates quotes, but I've never known of this particualr quote coming from him.

Please let me know if you find he's the one responsible for the quote. :o)

In my own personal, medically trained opinion
The Butt is a term that encompasses a a wide area.. M<UCH wider on some people. The Butt covers the area from just below the waist down to below the cheeks to a few inches down the legs and including the "taint." The cheeks or buns encompass most of this area, including the anus. Other terminology include Booty, Ass and Hockey Box. The Anus is the end of the large intestimes culmonating at the spinster muscle. The Anus, squint, chocolate highway or slimey slough as it is sometimes called depending on how gross you wanna be, is part of the BUTT but the BUTT is not part of the Anus.
