Well the Alito battle lines are being drawn and this does look like it is going to be lots of fun to watch.
Thinkprogress has an interesting rundown on some of the guys legal opinions.
ALITO SUPPORTS UNAUTHORIZED STRIP SEARCHES: In Doe v. Groody, Alito agued that police officers had not violated constitutional rights when they strip searched a mother and her ten-year-old daughter while carrying out a search warrant that authorized only the search of a man and his home. [Doe v. Groody, 2004]
Heck, he will probably feel right at home up there.
Looking to the future...
if Justice Stevens were to retire in the next few years, and be replaced by a staunch conservative, we would have a full scale constitutional revolution on our hands. For then the median Justices would be none other than John Roberts and Samuel Alito.
But anybody who believes in the free sale of machine guns can't be all bad.
Is there a better deterrent for illegal strip searches?
