Look for undie sales to soar as Supremes OK strip searches for new jail inmates

The old credo, made famous by maverick undercover New York TV detective Tony Baretta, was: “Don’t do the crime if you can’t do the time.”
Since Baretta worked undercover, he should have seen today coming.
To be brief, the Supreme Court decided today that jails may perform suspicionless strip searches on new inmates regardless of the gravity of their alleged offenses.
The ruling stems from a lawsuit that Albert Florence, with his attorney Susan Chana Lask, filed against two jails charging that officials violated his Fourth Amendment right to privacy by subjecting him to strip searches without any suspicion that he was concealing a weapon or contraband.
So much for that.
If Baretta still was working the streets, he undoubtedly would expand his credo to: “Don’t do the crime if you can’t do the time and are wearing dirty underwear.”
Of course, even if the undies are clean, they should be devoid of moth-eaten holes that would embarrass your mother.
Victoria’s Secret models now better be especially careful not to even get a speeding ticket.
