David Eckert 'Scared To...
David Eckert Appears To Clench His Buttocks; Cops Order Enemas, Colonoscopy, X-Ray For Non-Existent Drugs
Nov 05, 2013
A New Mexico man is alleging abuse after authorities conducted three enemas, a colonoscopy, an X-ray and several cavity searches on him simply because he appeared to clench his buttocks.

David Eckert's attorney recently filed a federal lawsuit on his behalf over the Jan. 3 incident, in which police and doctors co-opted an "unethical," 14-hour series of cavity searches, KOB-4 reports.

Court documents state that Eckert was driving out of Wal-Mart in Deming when he failed to fully stop at a parking lot stop sign. He was immediately pulled over.

When he stepped out of his vehicle, an officer reported that he appeared to be clenching his buttocks. That fact was cited as probable cause to suspect that Eckert was hiding narcotics in his anal cavity. Officers obtained a search warrant and Eckert's humiliating examination began at a nearby medical center.

From KOB-4:

Eckert’s abdominal area was X-rayed; no narcotics were found.
Doctors then performed an exam of Eckert’s anus with their fingers; no narcotics were found.
Doctors performed a second exam of Eckert’s anus with their fingers; no narcotics were found.
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.
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.
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.
Doctors then X-rayed Eckert again; no narcotics were found.
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.
Eckert's attorney told the Herald-Sun that the case needed to go public because it could set a scary precedent.

"If the officers in Hidalgo County and the City of Deming are seeking warrants for anal cavity searches based on how they’re standing and the warrant allows doctors at the 'Gila Hospital of Horrors' to go in and do enemas and colonoscopies without consent, then anyone can be seized," Shannon Kennedy said.

Deming Police Chief Brandon Gigante argued that his officers "follow the law in every aspect." Kennedy said that the officers' warrant allowing them to search Eckert expired hours before his ordeal was over, and the warrant wasn't even valid in the county where the procedures were performed.

Eckert is suing the City of Deming, Deming police officers Bobby Orosco, Robert Chavez, Officer Hernandez, and Hidalgo County deputies David Arredondo, Robert Rodriguez and Patrick Green. He's also suing Deputy District Attorney Daniel Dougherty and the Gila Regional Medical Center.

Okay friends, I had to look this up because I heard it on a news program and the reporter said that everything was done illegal yet no one is being charged. The lawyer for mr Eckert said that this basically shows that at any time any citizen can be taken to jail on a whim and stripped of all their rights and no one will be there to help or call into account the authorities actions...

Ummmm, this last part sounds like what we are preparing for...hopefully minus the enemas and colonscopy!

No....I can only handle so much terror in one night! Is that how you find it. ---roadside cavity checks?

I was hoping this would be drive thru dental check ups for emergency dental carries.

 

You have no idea what's happening out there right now then. A+ on the dental roadside checks but evidently they are not as fun for certain agencies.

Makes me want to lock the gate and pull the blinds! I haven't the stomach, nor do I want to think about any more possibilities. That colonoscopy is sort of pricey. Hope they don't charge him for the procedure. Wonder if they glanced for polyps?

 

If you find the article on line the victim, opps I mean perpatrator was charged around 6000 for the experiance.

As sad and demeaning the story above was, I could not contain myself due to the comments from Leslie and several others in here, the tears rolling down my eyes, and I couldn't stop laughing.   Am handicap, I hope I remember this story and not grab my a s s if I get out of my car.  God only knows what the police in my State will do, since people do what they want to do with these body searches.  

 

One time in a doctor's office, I asked a man sitting next to me if he was next in line to see the doctor.  He said no, but his wife was.  She was in there for a regular check up.  I said, is Medicare paying for this.  He said, no, I have work insurance (this was a while back before ObamaCare).  I told him he was nuts to pay for the visit.  All he had to do was go down the airport book a short flight and get free X-rays, MRI'S, a Colon check, dental, hair loss, foot fungus (the shoes and socks come off), and all your private parts for free.   He and I sat there laughing our heads off, and all the while he kept saying, "its true, next time when I go for my check up, am going to BWI!"
