Geez I thought it was the ALIENS that were the ones doing the anal probes, not the government! I hope this guy wins his lawsuit, but my concern is that it is only the beginning of more to come. Do they make chastity belts for the back? HELP!!!
What I want to see here is for those cops to lose every asset they have, then I want the same to happen to their close family members, then I want those cops to be forced to see their children raped as the last thing they ever see. Then I want a bullet in their heads. Oh and I want the family charged for the bullet as a final insult. It can be one of those special $20,000 government bullets too.
Yeah, that's a bit much. Why punish the innocent?
I think the cops and doctors should be arrested and jailed for rape, because that's what it was. They raped that man. They tortured him. They broke their own laws in the process as well. They need to be convicted, not just sued.

You know what, I'm not gonna argue with that. I posted that out hatred of the situation and you're right, it was tasteless. I know that most TSA agents are just doing they're job. But that doesn't stop me from hating the source of problem, however that manifests to us average Americans, whether it be cops brutalizing my fellow citizens or TSA breaking our constitutional rights and treating tube fed 3 year olds as terrorists. It's not their fault they are doing their job as best they are instructed and supporting their family as best they can... but they've become part of the machine, enemies of the constitution of America and that's why I stand against them.
Hope you understand where I'm coming from, and I apologize for being tasteless and offensive.
“Based on the search warrant, they take him to a facility in Deming … [an] Urgent Care facility,” Kennedy continued. “And the doctor there says, ‘No, this is unethical. I can’t do this. This is wrong.’ And then they take him to another facility, the Gila Medical Facility in Silver City, New Mexico where literally he is subjected to five to seven hours of medical procedures including digital severance, enemas, culminating in a colonoscopy, complete colonoscopy under the theory that the warrant authorized what the doctor called a body cavity search. And he’s taken home at 3:00 in the morning after being stopped at 2:00 in the afternoon.” Beck asked whether Eckert said he wanted an attorney present, and Kennedy said he “absolutely” made that request. However, many of those involved seemed to believe that since the man hadn’t yet been charged with a crime, he didn’t have the right to an attorney.

A third New Mexico resident is claiming that she was physically abused by police and medical staff who exceeded their authority to search for drugs she never had. The woman’s attorney came forward with her story just a few days after a local news channel reported similar stories involving New Mexico police forcing two suspects to undergo invasive surgery to prove they weren’t carrying drugs. Police used expired and nonexistent warrants to justify the improper and unethical searches, according to KOB-TV 4. Read more: dailycaller.com...
this part confused me about this link, was she stopped in NM or texas?
that her client was stopped by police in El Paso, Texas Read more: dailycaller.com...
is it not common when widespread corruption/illegal activities going on for the federal government to come in and run the police department in question until its back to legal code or whatnot?
A New Mexico man has settled with local authorities for $1.6 million after claiming police forced him to undergo "multiple digital penetrations and three enemas" on an invalid warrant and without finding any of the illicit drugs they were looking for.

Sounds to me like she was stopped in Texas. Maybe they reported it because it was a nearby similar case.
El Paso has sometimes been accused of being part of New Mexico . . . essentially, culturally etc. Of course, Texans are not interested. LOL.
The Associated Press reports that the city of Deming, New Mexico, where David Eckert was pulled over for a rolling stop last January, and nearby Hidalgo County have agreed to settle a civil rights lawsuit he filed after cops from those two jurisdictions forced him to undergo a humiliating exploration of his digestive tract. The city and county will pay Eckert $1.6 million, which amounts to $200,000 for each of the increasingly intrusive searches performed on Eckert at Gila Regional Medical Center in Silver City: two X-rays, two digital probes of his anus, three enemas, and a colonoscopy, none of which discovered the slightest trace of the drugs that police claim to have thought he was hiding inside himself. Eckert also sued various Deming and Hidalgo County police officers; the hospital, which billed him more than $6,000 for these indignities; and two physicians, Robert Wilcox and Okay Odocha, who executed the elaborate assault under the cover of medicine. “It was medically unethical and unconstitutional,” Shannon Kennedy, Eckert’s attorney, told A.P. “He feels relieved that this part is over and believes this litigation might make sure this doesn’t happen to anyone else.” Eckert added: I feel that I got some justice as I think the settlement shows they were wrong to do what they did to me. I truly hope that no one will be treated like this ever again. I felt very helpless and alone on that night.
