Victim Of Dog-Authorized Anal Assault Receives $1.6 Million Settlement

 

 

 

” 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, whose case was first noted here by Brian Doherty, 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.”

 

  You can read more on this heinous story here and for our posting on the original story go here . Remember that this was not an isolated incident . There were at least two other State assaults and the story even provoked Mark Steyn to comment .
  The city and police department got off easy if you ask us . $1.6 Million is a pittance for the abuse heaped on this innocent young man at the hands of the State .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Drift Toward Despotism

 

 

” At a time when over 4 million people have had their health insurance canceled, it’s good to know that some Americans can still access prompt medical treatment, even if they don’t want it. David Eckert was pulled over by police in Deming, N.M., for failing to come to a complete halt at a stop sign in the Walmart parking lot. He was asked to step out of the vehicle, and waited on the sidewalk. Officers decided that they didn’t like the tight clench of his buttocks, a subject on which New Mexico’s constabulary is apparently expert, and determined that it was because he had illegal drugs secreted therein. So they arrested him, and took him to Gila Regional Medical Center in neighboring Hidalgo County, where Mr. Eckert was forced to undergo two abdominal X-rays, two rectal probes, three enemas, and defecate thrice in front of medical staff and representatives of two law-enforcement agencies, before being sedated and subjected to a colonoscopy — all procedures performed against his will and without a valid warrant.

Alas, Mr. Eckert’s body proved to be a drug-free zone, and so, after twelve hours of detention, he was released. If you’re wondering where his lawyer was during all this, no attorney was present, as police had not charged Mr. Eckert with anything, so they’re apparently free to frolic and gambol up his rectum to their hearts’ content. Deming police chief Brandon Gigante says his officers did everything “by the book.” That’s the problem, in New Mexico and beyond: “the book.” “

4 On Your Side Reveals Another Traffic Stop Nightmare

 

   A reader sent us a comment pointing us to this new story that , unfortunately , mirrors the nightmare of David Eckert at the hands of New Mexico police . It appears that a Mr Timothy Young was subjected to the same obscene invasions of privacy at the same Gila Regional Medical Center for failure to signal . 4 On Your Side continues :

 

 

 

” 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.

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

The Traffic Stop From Hell

 

David Eckert

 

 

” This 4 On Your Side investigation looks into the actions of police officers and doctors in Southern New Mexico. 

A review of medical records, police reports and a federal lawsuit show deputies with the Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Office, police officers with the City of Deming and medical professionals at the Gila Regional Medical Center made some questionable decisions.

The incident began January 2, 2013 after David Eckert finished shopping at the Wal-Mart in Deming.  According to a federal lawsuit, Eckert didn’t make a complete stop at a stop sign coming out of the parking lot and was immediately stopped by law enforcement.”

 

 

   For failing to come to a complete stop at a mall stop sign this poor man was subjected to the most obscene indignities one could imagine . This surely falls into the “truth is stranger than fiction” category , as no Hollywood movie script writer could ever come up with this scenario . 

 

 

” While there, Eckert was subjected to repeated and humiliating forced medical procedures.  A review of Eckert’s medical records, which he released to KOB, and details in the lawsuit show the following happened:

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.”

 

 

   So we are supposed to believe that perceived “clenched buttocks” is grounds for a search warrant being issued ? The judge should be disbarred , the arresting officers fired and the Doctors performing these invasive surgical/medical procedures should be prohibited from treating so much as a stray F***ing cat . And to think there are millions of people in this country that actually believe that the State needs to be granted MORE power in order to keep us “safe” .

   What we need to be kept safe from is Leviathan , not dopers … 

 

 

     Here is a list of judges from Grant county courtesy of Judgepedia . An online search has done more to confuse us than clarify the matter but as best we can tell , the nearest judge/courthouse to Deming is in Bayard and the judge’s name is Jose Sandoval . We do not pretend to understand more than the rudiments of law , courts and criminal proceedings and so are at a bit of a loss as to how to expand our investigation into what judge saw fit to issue this insane search warrant . If any readers would like to help please feel free to contact us .

   Here is a link to New Mexico legal documents that explains a lot about the search warrant process . Here is the Grant County website , the Gila Regional Medical Center and the Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Office . This violation of human rights must not go unpunished .
