It's worse than the Jennifer Lawrence, et al thing, though. You expect thieves to be thieves, so you do things to secure your valued things, whether physical or electronic. But these police officers were abusing the authority, and in some cases trust, they had to pilfer these women's things. Many people allow their cars, cell phone usage, etc. to be searched to prove they were up to nothing worse than what they were pulled over for. Allowing that comes with the obligation of the police to search and seize no more than evidence of crime, not to personally profit by taking whatever they find.
