Incredible video of a police stop in Texas where two women - Angel Dobbs, 38, and her niece, Ashley Dobbs, 24 - were pulled over by a trooper for allegedly throwing a cigarette butt out of the car and were then subjected to a public, roadside sexual assault, vaginal and anal, by another, female trooper who, adding insult to injury, used only one pair of latex gloves.

The women have filed a federal lawsuit. May their reward be bountiful.
