This San Bernadino cop should be fired, but he won't even get a slap on the wrist. Sometimes I think that as a profession, police officers commit a higher rate of illegal acts than members of any other profession, unless we consider career criminal a profession
As Jonathan Turley points out, the cop in the video searched the hiker without a "scintilla of reasonable suspicion," and he did so even though she repeatedly stated that she did not give her consent to be searched.
So let's see, the police in California have been shooting blindly at pick up trucks because Christopher Dorner might be driving. Now they're landing helicopters in the desert, harassing women out for a hike. What next? Are they going to start shooting hikers from helicopters?
