Unlicensed recreational pharmaceutical product manufacturers require their employees to work naked to reduce pilferage. I doubt many manage to hide anything.

Doses of 200 to 1,000 rad delivered in a few hours will cause serious illness with poor outlook at the upper end of the range. Whole body doses of more than 1,000 rad are almost invariably fatal. Radiation increases the risk of cancer and other stochastic effects at any dose.
Feel free to take it up with CDCR. They have access to the same data you do. Inmates are planning to drop work and education assignments over it.

So see, OP...there are things worse than being quickly stripped out!

It gets down to the difference between having them fondled or rotted off.

This topic/thread is a joke right? You are a convicted felon I presume now, and you are going to jail/prison. Get ready for the strip searches, the demoralizing and degrading that will take place. Most importantly, you better what yourself in prison with the inmates. They are the ones you should fear. Keep your mouth shut, do your time, don't whine, make complaints, cause problems, look weak, or anything to draw attention to you. You committed a crime and you will no longer be John Doe, you will be inmate number XXXXXX. Get used to it. The sooner you realize bucking the system won't work, the better off your time will be inside those walls.

First of its not as bad as it sounds. I did 7 years in FLDOC and Strip searches are not an everyday thing. Anytime you move institutions and when you first hit reception you will have to go through the strip process. They will have you undress one article of clothing at a time looking for contraband. Then you will have to squat and cough. Once you get to your main camp. Strip Searches will be rare only during visitation if you choose to go and during mass shakedowns. Regular pat downs happen in the system but they are pretty non invasive. Just remember that life gets easier and you will find acceptance. If you decide to fight just remember it will be a long road and they will win. Isolation is they worst way to do time. I spent 24 hours a day in a cell for 9 months in close management during my time. My best advice is find a way to cope with it. Tell your self that this is just a temporary place and it will not last forever. In florida we have a saying its their world and we are just passing through it.

Also, if I refuse to be strip searched/spread cheeks, they obviously can't force me to do it. And if they physically forced me to strip/spread cheeks, that would also be a violation of my Privacy rights/Religious rights, which would allow me to sue them for an injunction, correct? Please advise if you have any experience in asserting such remedies.

Okay, I'm sorry, I'm just laughing hysterically through this whole thread. I kind of wish I wasn't so late to the party.

Call me insensitive, but let's be real. ANY law you violate that results in a prison sentence has EVERYTHING to do with losing those rights. You are not that special.

As for your "Constitutional rights," the courts have had several decades to decide whether or not strip searches are unconstitutional and so far they have not.

A "reasonable accomodation" to your fear might be to put you on some sort of anti-anxiety medication. You don't get to avoid strip searches just because you're afraid of them. Institutional security supercedes what you (wrongly) view as "right to privacy." Your fear is not a disability, and as someone with a legitimate mental illness (who doesn't fear silly things like strip searches, even had to comply with one post-visiting once because of a drug accusation....wasn't so bad, really, I actually chuckled that the poor saps requiring the strip search now had to see my ugly butt naked,) I'm a bit offended that you would use an act that's important to people like me when we truly cannot accomplish something without accomodation in order to satisfy your desire for comfort or convenience when you could easily do what everyone else in the prison does and strip out.

I'm sorry, I know I should be supportive and sympathetic, but I just....with this one, I just can't believe what I just read. There are REAL human rights violations in prison, REAL abuse that occurs, there's sexual abuse by staff and inmates on other inmates, there's beatings, there's a drug black market and people die of overdoses because of others deciding they need to make a buck........someone not wanting to strip out is LOW on the list of prison concerns, in my opinion.

I was pretty sure this was joke the first time I read it, but I know there are special snowflakes out there.

One of things that I never take for granted is that my best friend willing submits to these things every time I visit her.

This mind set is part of the reason the criminal justice system is in such dire straits and why DOC is the way it is...

This is horrible and so sad.
