    If a drug dog had alerted (never mind that many such alerts are fake alerts done on cue) the search of the car would have been legal.

    The roadside body cavity search and the theft of the prescription medication would not have been legal under any circumstances.

    Below is what I've scraped off the internet about the two abusive cops (Kelly Elizabeth Helleson & David Andrew Farrell).

    If you know these two creeps, turn your backs on them, scorn them, shun them.

    Now to return to my regularly scheduled curmudgeonly duties ...

    David Andrew Farrell (

    David Farrell et ux Allison, 3820 Periwinkle St., Bedford, Texas 76021-4054 (Tarrant County)

    Wife: Allison Hampton Farrell, 31 (

    Likely mother: Carmen Farrell, 7103 Forest Ridge Circle, Castle Rock, CO 80108 ( 303) 660-4938, age 61
    Likely father: Don Farrell, 7103 Forest Ridge Circle, Castle Rock, CO 80108 ( 303) 660-4938, age 65

    A. The female police office who conducted the illegal roadside cavity search is Kelly Elizabeth Hellesen.

    Note that most media outlets misspelled her first name as "Kelley". The correct spelling is "Kelly".

    Does a dog alert justify digital penetration like that? That cannot be....
    since dogs can be incited to false alert, you'd need something else to trigger bringing in the dogs that would buttress a search even if a dog alerted...

    This is a prior incident involving David Farrell dating to 2009. The first time I ran across a reference to this, the video had one of those "sorry this video has been removed ..." notices when I tried to view it.

    This copy can still be viewed:

    Texas DPS Trooper David Farrell violates 4th Amendment protection against unlawful search

    Published on Jun 25, 2012

    This is Texas DPS Highway Patrol Officer David Farrell using excessive force when he didn't get consent to search a vehicle on 11/07/2009 in Sanger Texas at exit 477 on I35. A K-9 unit from Corinth Texas was called in and it alerted (false alert given by the handler). The vehicle was then unlawfully searched, nothing was found Man arrested for false charge of Resisting Arrest.

    This is the same trooper that involved with the recent cavity search civil rights lawsuit. If you have had any experience with this trooper, please send me a private message through my channel.

    This guy is simply bad news. Did you hear the questions he asked these people? very combative and invasive. The victims stood up for themselves and asserted their rights, and the man was taken down in retaliation. Defendant Farrell was going to search their car despite lack of consent or any cause whatever. There is a pattern of civil rights abuse proven now for this man, and the fact that DPS knew about this and continued to employ him exposes them to enhanced legal/financial penalties.

    No question about it, IMO, he is now too much of a liability for DPS at this point, even if he does know where the bodies are buried. I think he's toast. Along with female pervert he worked with in the most recent abuse incident. This is not showing DPS in a very good light at all.

    I hope the plaintiff lawyers are skilled and hungry.

    Don't forget their helicopter assassins -- DOJ needs to undertake a serious overhaul of Texas DPS.

    Those in charge of it need to be fired.
  9. Yep, that's what I meant, sorry I wasn't clear. If marijuana was the issue, there was a legal way to go about doing a search. Not the search that was done. I'm still trying to understand what motivates a couple of cops to do what they did, in such a sloppy and illegal manner, all on camera.

    I'm thinking it was and is SOP.

    That's the troublesome part. It probably was, and it probably still is.

    For the casual reader dropping in via Google or Bing, SOP = "standard operating procedure"

    At about 1 minute on the video the male [cop] calls for the female [cop]. He didn't call HQ or anyone else but calls specifically for the female pig. Tells her he needs her help to "search a couple of females". Then at 3 min 10 seconds the female [cop] is seen starting the search. She is clearly using the palm of the hand on the mid-line of the buttocks and then the pelvis. Based on how far she is reaching in the victims clothing it is clear she is fully engaged in a penetrative search.

    It is clear to me that these two ladies were raped by DPS employees.

    I'm going to take a SWAG (scientific wild (expletive deleted) guess) that the Spur address is correct as I could not get close enough as there are DPS vechiles parked at the entrance to that mini sub division over the weekend. Me thinks maybe the pig has gotten more then a few hateful vistors.

    coupled with the victim's on-the-spot contemporaneous statements, I agree with you. In California, this would be enough if it weren't cops doing the penetration.

    Tending the .... ...., no doubt. Thanks for the confirmation. :)

    Personal confrontations are pointless. You might get your 30 seconds of air time if a TV crew happens to be there, but there's really nothing to accomplished by knocking on the door.

    What I hope comes out of this, now that all the info & connections are up on the internet, is that as their friends and acquaintances come to realize just who & what their "friends" are, they will turn their backs on them and shun them. Most people (esp. women) will want nothing to do with sort of animals self-depicted in the video.

    The irony in all this is that despite having gone through the hoops to hide the property deed:
    • They had listed phone numbers, with complete address, from which you can click for map and satellite view (should see if I can get a decent image out of the satellite view to sub for the lack of Street View)
    • Hubby's Google Plus profile contains their home address and map
    • Hubby has a conspicuous listing in LinkedIn
    Abusive cops should seek out vacant gopher holes without addresses to live in.

    Dallas Morning News: Hits and Misses (Dec 21 2012)

    Treatment unbecoming of the state trooper’s badge

    The full story won’t be known for a while, but it appears that two state troopers far overstepped the boundaries of common sense, human decency and maybe even the law in a videotaped cavity search conducted on two women on State Highway 161 in Irving. A male trooper ordered the search, conducted roadside by female trooper Kelley Helleson, on a hunch that the women had marijuana in their car. No pot was found. On the video, one of the searched women can be heard graphically describing the search and complaining, “I was, like, totally violated over there.” In the video, Helleson does not even appear to have changed gloves between the searches. Ick. She’s being sued and is now on paid suspension pending a grand jury investigation.
  17. While I fully support this naming and shaming, my heart breaks for the kids of these two (expletive deleted). I hope they can be shielded from the fallout. I also hope the spouses of these two, if they are good people, are going to be okay. Particularly the wife, who looks like a sweet gal in the pictures. Perhaps he made like he was a good guy, and this was his secret life. It would suck to suddenly realize, right before Christmas, that you were married to a guy who set a couple of law-abiding (misdemeanor littering notwithstanding) women up for gross girl-on-girl rape, and that perhaps this was a stunt he's been pulling on a regular basis for years.

    well, the agreement says 'for better or worse'. this would be the worse.

    I've always understood "for better or for worse" to mean that you stick with each other through good times and bad. Activities that perpetrate a fraud upon the relationship (e.g. criminal activitities) are your ticket out of it.

    One cannot be expected to continue to live with a rapist. If I were Kelly Helleson's spouse, I wouldn't want those hands on me at night, knowing what she does with them at work. The woman is just vile, anathema!

    I'm really wondering what the "cascade" effect of all this is going to be.

    In the 16 months after Loretta Van Beek stepped forward and filed her strip-search lawsuit in Feb. of 2011, another 7 women stepped forward with similar complaints. As of last June, there were three lawsuits on the dockets represent four (including Loretta) of those eight victims.
