Protests outside of the Jackson County Jail over women being able to wear underwire bras

News

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — And in the Kansas City area, dozens of attorneys were seen raising picket signs and their voices at the Jackson County Courthouse this afternoon.

The protesting is for new security screenings at the Jackson County Jail that will require female attorney’s to remove their bras before visiting with inmates due to the underwire inside the bras.

The attorneys are calling this new process offensive and maybe even illegal.

 a meeting was called with the sheriff and jail director but when that wasn’t immediately agreed to they took to the streets. “This is not a normal policy. I represented death penalty clients for three years of my career. And guess what? I did it with an underwire bra on. ((Woo)) I was not told I had to take off my bra and these are the people supposedly the most dangerous in Missouri” said one of the protesters.

A public meeting was later held but no official decisions were made.
