"Judge, he was clenching his buttocks so we need to search for drugs."

That is about how it went for David Eckert after the cops pulled him over for running a stop sign.

Here is the description of what he went through. In addition to the ordeal he went through he was billed for the procedures by the hospital even though he gave no consent nor was he the person who requested the procedures. I wonder if Obamacare covers this.

The entire story can be read at http://reason.com/blog/2013/11/05/dont-appear-to-be-clenching-your-buttock

Eckert's attorney, Shannon Kennedy, said in an interview with KOB that after law enforcement asked him to step out of the vehicle, he appeared to be clenching his buttocks. Law enforcement thought that was probable cause to suspect that Eckert was hiding narcotics in his anal cavity. While officers detained Eckert, they secured a search warrant from a judge that allowed for an anal cavity search.

The lawsuit claims that Deming Police tried taking Eckert to an emergency room in Deming, but a doctor there refused to perform the anal cavity search citing it was "unethical."

But physicians at the Gila Regional Medical Center in Silver City agreed to perform the procedure and a few hours later, Eckert was admitted.

While there...

1. Eckert's abdominal area was x-rayed; no narcotics were found.

2. Doctors then performed an exam of Eckert's anus with their fingers; no narcotics were found.

3. Doctors performed a second exam of Eckert's anus with their fingers; no narcotics were found.

4. Doctors penetrated Eckert's anus to insert an enema. Eckert was forced to defecate in front of doctors and police officers. Eckert watched as doctors searched his stool. No narcotics were found.

5. Doctors penetrated Eckert's anus to insert an enema a second time. Eckert was forced to defecate in front of doctors and police officers. Eckert watched as doctors searched his stool. No narcotics were found.

6. Doctors penetrated Eckert's anus to insert an enema a third time. Eckert was forced to defecate in front of doctors and police officers. Eckert watched as doctors searched his stool. No narcotics were found.

7. Doctors then x-rayed Eckert again; no narcotics were found.

8. Doctors prepared Eckert for surgery, sedated him, and then performed a colonoscopy where a scope with a camera was inserted into Eckert's anus, rectum, colon, and large intestines. No narcotics were found.

Throughout this ordeal, Eckert protested and never gave doctors at the Gila Regional Medical Center consent to perform any of these medical procedures....

There are major concerns about the way the search warrant was carried out. Kennedy argues that the search warrant was overly broad and lacked probable cause. But beyond that, the warrant was only valid in Luna County, where Deming is located. The Gila Regional Medical Center is in Grant County. That means all of the medical procedures were performed illegally and the doctors who performed the procedures did so with no legal basis and no consent from the patient. ....

The warrant also had expired in time when the "medical procedures" were carried out. Eckert is
suing the city of Deming and Deming Police Officers Bobby Orosco, Robert Chavez and Officer Hernandez, as well as three Hidalgo County Deputies and two doctors from the Gila Regional Medical Center.


LOL of course it was YOU that posted this.

so you headed down there to see if they'll do some work on you too?

maybe go for the gerbil bonus round?


while the gentleman's treatment is obviously excessive, and that i would prefer if almost all drugs were legalized, the article conveniently omits the dude was widely known for trafficking drugs in the area. but yeah, WTF...

ever wonder how often this kind of shit happened before we had the internet for dweebs to scour for anything superficially supporting their pre-scripted beliefs?

the town where i grew up routinely pulled over blacks with no cause when they dared make a rare (or, for jim, rear) entrance. i personally know a detroit cop who loves beating people. it's his thing. he loves working the shittiest part of the city because it affords him the most opportunity to deliver beatings. bad cops are nothing new.

Watch the video "4 On Your Side reveals another traffic stop nightmare".

Second man reports New Mexico police forced him to undergo invasive medical exams to find drugs

Posted Wednesday, November 6th 2013 @ 4pm
Another man, another minor traffic violation, another incident with Leo the K-9 and another example of the violation of a man's body.

Police reports state deputies stopped Timothy Young because he turned without putting his blinker on.

Again, Leo the K-9 alerts on Young's seat.

Young is taken to the Gila Regional Medical Center in Silver City, and just like Eckert, he's subjected to medical procedures including x-rays of his stomach and an anal exam.

the article conveniently omits the dude was widely known for trafficking drugs in the area.

Make that several articles have omitted that. I've not seen it written yet, except by you.

Excessive or abuse of authority?


interestingly i can no longer readily find a reference to 'know drug guy.'

and now another guy says he got probed. same medical facility outside the jurisdiction of the warrant. seems like the cops down there got some kind of 'lifestyle interest' club going on. jim becomes continually more interested in this case.

excessive or abuse of authority? are they not the same thing in this case? in any case like this?

I am interested in any case of police abuse.


Two LAPD Cops Allegedly Raped Female Informants, Sex Workers Over Several Years

Jess Remington|Nov. 6, 2013 5:12 pm
Two LAPD officers, Luis Valenzuela and James Nichols, are under investigation for reportedly using the threat of arrest to rape at least four women over the course of several years. Two of the women reported working for the officers as confidential informants, while one says she was detained for prostitution and another was allegedly stopped while she was simply out walking.

In a search warrant affidavit released yesterday, an LAPD Internal Affairs officer outlined the allegations against the officers.

According to the affidavit, the department was first made aware of the officers’ alleged behavior in January 2010 when a woman who worked as an informant for Valenzuela and Nichols reported being detained by the plain clothes officers while she was out walking; she was then forced to perform sex acts on one of the men. The investigation was eventually dropped.

A year later, another woman filed a complaint with LAPD supervisors, alleging that Valenzuela raped her under almost identical circumstances.
While she was walking down the street in Hollywood, Valenzuela ordered her into his undercover police vehicle or be arrested. Once inside, Valenzuela allegedly told her, “If you don’t suck my dick, you’re going to jail.” He then “grabbed her by the back of her head and forced her to perform oral copulation on him,” while Nichols sat in the front seat.

A sex worker also came forward, following an anonymous complaint filed with the department that “unknown LAPD officers were exchanging sexual favors from prostitutes in lieu of arrest.” The woman claimed that Nichols raped her twice. Both times he detained and handcuffed her, drove to a secluded area, and pulled out his erect penis. At one point, Nichols allegedly asked the woman, “You don’t want to go to jail today, do you?”

Additionally, a second confidential informant who worked with Valenzuela and Nichols for over a year claimed that the men insisted on using sex as a bargaining tool as she worked off her arrest.

According to the LA Times:
Sources familiar with the case…said police officials determined from the investigation that there was enough evidence of misconduct to have Nichols and Valenzuela fired.
Under city rules, the chief of police does not have the authority to fire an officer outright. Instead, Chief Charlie Beck ordered discipline hearing panels that will decide if the officers are guilty of the allegations and, if so, whether they should be fired or given a lesser punishment.
Valenzuela, a 16-year department veteran, and Nichols, who has been an officer for nearly 13 years, were suspended with pay during the investigation. They are no longer being paid as they await the disciplinary hearing.​
As the officers prepare for the hearing, Nichols' attorney claimed the women "have no credibility."

Man forced by police to have enemas, colonoscopy settles lawsuit

UPI 1/17/2014 3:06:58 PM
DEMING, N.M., Jan. 17 (UPI) --
Authorities in Hidalgo County, N.M., have settled a lawsuit for $1.6 million with a man who claims they illegally made him undergo colonoscopies and enemas.

David Eckert, 54, filed a lawsuit against the county and its police department in 2013, for allegedly violating his constitutional right against unreasonable searches and seizures during a 12-hour ordeal early in January 2013, CNN reported.

The suit said Eckert was pulled over for not properly stopping at a stop sign in Deming, N.M.

During the traffic stop, Eckert "was avoiding eye contact with me," his "left hand began to shake," and he stood "erect (with) his legs together," a police affidavit detailing the stop stated.

Eckert was told he could leave the scene, but before doing so he consented to a search of him and his vehicle, during which a K-9 dog hit a spot on the driver's seat, according to the affidavit. However, no drugs were found in the vehicle.

A "Hidalgo County K-9 officer did inform me that he had dealt with Mr. Eckert on a previous case and stated that Mr. Eckert was known to insert drugs into his anal cavity and had been caught in Hidalgo County with drugs in his anal cavity," the affidavit said.

Eckert was placed under "investigative detention" and brought to the Deming Police Department around 2 p.m., then to a local hospital where "no drugs were found" after "an X-ray and two digital searches of his rectum by two different doctors," the lawsuit stated.

The lawsuit alleged that while Eckert was in custody, he was forced to undergo three enemas and a colonoscopy, during which authorities found "no drugs." The plaintiff was in custody until about 1:25 a.m.

"(Authorities) acted completely outside the bounds of human decency by orchestrating wholly superfluous physical body cavity searches performed by an unethical medical professional," the plaintiff asserted.

Eckert agreed to settle the lawsuit on Dec. 20, but the case became public only recently, CNN said.

Eckert "feels gratified that the city and county acted quickly, and ... that they recognize his dignity and humanity," his lawyer, Joe Kennedy, said Thursday. "He expects that it won't happen to anyone else ever again."
