Add in to the violations the sheer embarrassment the victim endured, and you are looking at a serious financial award.

If it were me, there would be no settlement. I would soak them for millions, and I would spend money on recalling the sheriff and then run for sheriff myself. If I won, I'd fire every single officer who thinks this type of behavior is in any way acceptable.



At least you're willing to put your ass on the line to take one for the team....

Agree. The staff's answer not only should have been no, but "Hell no." The first doc got it right.

Those procedures are not completely benign. Some of them could have resulted in bowel perforation and subsequent peritonitis, perhaps death.

Taking one for the team is laudable. Taking one from the team, not so much.Smile

Quote:4 On Your Side reveals another traffic stop nightmare

Our investigation reveals another chapter. 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.

Again, police found nothing, and again the procedures were done without consent, and in a county not covered by the search warrant.

We've learned more about that drug dog, Leo, that seems to get it wrong pretty often. He might be getting it wrong because he's not even certified in New Mexico.

If you take a look at the dog's certification, the dog did get trained. But his certification to be a drug dog expired in April 2011. K-9s need yearly re-certification courses, and Leo is falling behind.

"We have done public requests to find anything that would show this dog has been trained, we have evidence that this dog has had false alerts in the past," Eckert's attorney Shannon Kennedy said.

The doctors from the Gila Regional Medical Center have been turned over to the state licensing board. It's possible they could lose the ability to practice to medicine.

And the police officers will be answering to a law enforcement board.
The Second Amendment does not GIVE us the right. It tells the gov they can not infringe our right.

Link: Man Seeks Millions After N.M. Police Force Colonoscopy in Drug Search

Quote:Civil rights attorney says Hispanic officers may have targeted 'white boy' because they 'don't like him living in their community'

Police forced New Mexico scrap metal tradesman David Eckert to undergo two digital anal probes, three enema insertions and ultimately a colonoscopy after officers incorrectly assumed he was concealing drugs, according to a lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court on his behalf.

No drugs were found by police or doctors at the Gila Regional Medical Center in Silver City, N.M. The exhaustive search began when Eckert allegedly rolled through a stop sign in Deming, N.M., on Jan. 2, 2013.

Albuquerque civil rights attorney Shannon Kennedy is representing Eckert and says she is seeking "in excess of $1 million in punitive damages alone" from the law enforcement and medical personnel responsible and their employers.

I support his lawsuit, but I'd also like to see every single person involved, judge, doctors, nurses, police, DA, and commanding officers to be held personally accountable as well.

Judges, police, the DA being held personally accountable? Hahahaha......that's funny. Paid suspensions are the best we can hope for.

We've all read too many horror stories where the police keep their jobs for doing far worse to innocent people.

Another article on this from a different source:
http://politicaloutcast.com/2013/11/new-...s-posture/

Quote:So, warrant in hand, they took Eckert to a local Deming hospital, but doctors there refused to do the cavity search, saying it was “unethical.” But have no fear. A hospital in a neighboring county (where, incidentally, the search warrant was not valid) didn’t have the same qualms about unethical behavior. They weren’t going to let a little thing like ethics get in the way of the war on drugs.

Then, when all of those methods turned up absolutely nothing, the doctors prepared Eckert for surgery and performed a colonoscopy, where they searched the extent of his bowels with a miniature camera. And guess what? Eckert didn’t have any narcotics in him or on him. So police finally let him go well into the wee hours of the next morning after thoroughly humiliating him and violating his anal integrity in pretty much every conceivable medical way. And, by the way, even if the search warrant had been valid in the neighboring county (which it wasn’t), it expired at 10 pm. Medical records indicate they were preparing for the colonoscopy at 1 am. This is no good. To say the least.

I can report thankfully that Eckert is suing the police department and the hospital. And I hope he bankrupts them both. This is just yet another example of police power gone wild. If it weren’t so well-documented or so common, I would hardly believe it happened.

Congrats to the local hospital in Deming but I want to see the hospital in the neighboring county pay dearly. They went way above and beyond considering that the warrant wasn't even valid in their county on top of everything else that's wrong with this whole situation.
There are three types of people in the world:
Those who make things happen,
Those who watch things happen,
And those who wonder what happened.

Actually, the hospital charged the suspect $6,000:

And then there is this little gem:

Quote:Kennedy says her client lives in fear of retaliation yet wants to share his story "to protect others, to let them know this happened."

But, she says, he also wants to guard his privacy and doesn't want to be known as "the anally probed guy."

Can we get a comment from Topsy on this?

Besides, I'd like to think "the anally probed guy" would probably be a big hit theme in NFL commercials. I would be trying to make lemonade out of lemons.
