Question: Are the any legal precedents (U.S. legal system) that have firmly addressed the administration and usage of sedatives on apprehended individuals by or at the request of law enforcement ?
To be clear I am asking if any court has established that the administration of sedatives by or at the request of law enforcement is fair game and not in violation of ones right's: state, federal or otherwise. Law enforcement might be broken into two cases. (1) federal law enforcement to include: "Border Patrol,"FBI", Drug Enforcement Agency, and U.S. Marshals. (2) local law enforcement in all of its combinations and permutation.
