    War On Drugs : Anal search

    From the "folks, this is just wrong" department of our War on Drugs, reported by KOB-TV 4 in New Mexico. They are reporting on a lawsuit that arose from an incident [that] 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.
    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....

    I will never again look at those Wal-Mart stop signs the same.

    I hope the guy wins 100,000,000 million dollars. See while I'm not one to support the "I'm a ****ing dumbass and injured myself by being stupid" lawsuits, violations of civil liberties are a different story.

    Frankly the whole "war on drugs" is the single biggest waste of American time and taxpayer dollars to date.
    Peace and Humptiness Forever

    The 4th amendment is dead. No such thing as privacy or property. We are property of the state and at any point in a blink of an eye they will violate our liberties.

    The anal cavity search is way over the line in the first place, but even if they are gonna do that youd think theyd give up sometimes before the 3rd ****ing enema.

    How is the fourth amendment dead? This is all over the news here and a formal investigation has already been launched. All the reports here are the cop in question and his superiors are about to lose their jobs, and the hospital is about to be hit with a monster lawsuit. If the fourth amendment was dead, this would be swept under the rug and no one would do anything about it. In fact, there is a push to audit small town law enforcement here in NM to make sure there isn't other stuff like this going on. Doesn't sound like a situation where the fourth amendment is dead to me...

    If I could take your pain and frame it, and hang it on my wall,
    maybe you would never have to hurt again...

    Locke this happened almost a year ago. And the only reason why there is a "formal investigation" now is because this guy is suing and his lawyer went to the media. Had he not done that this would have definitely been swept under the rug. All the investigations and possible firings are happening well after the fact. But there is a bigger problem that is the reason why this happened in the first place.......

    Because the 4th amendment and our privacy is dead and not respected at all by the government.

    I don't know if you've been paying attention but the destruction of the 4th and privacy has been going on for a long time. The War on Drugs started a snowball effect that decimated our liberties and privacy. Then came the War On Terror that took it to the next level. TSA touching our balls. And now we have the NSA reading, watching and listening to our emails, phone calls and internet activity. It's all a culmination of government intrusions and attacks on our 4th amendment and privacy that has gotten us to this point. Fact is if the government wants to search your house, phones, computer, papers and even your ass.....they will and there is nothing we can do about it. That's why the 4th is dead.

    Show me all the times the government respected and upheld the 4th/privacy and I'll show you countless times where they violated it and destroyed it.

    Looks like this has happened before.......

    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 medicine.

    And the police officers will be answering to a law enforcement board

    And this happened over a year ago. More than likely a case of police using dogs to make false positives. Something that happens quite a lot in this country......



    Crazy that a police officer has the power to search your ass just by making a dog do a false positive.

    Another nightmare anal search!!! Not a porn title I swear.


    It may be hard to believe that this could happen to yet another New Mexican. KOB's 4 On Your Side team found a woman who claims she was violated by federal agents and doctors.

    Laura Schaur Ives, Legal Director for the New Mexico Chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union, is representing the woman.

    Schaur Ives said the woman doesn't wish to be identified because she considers herself to be a victim of sexual assault. Schaur Ives said the woman crossed the border at a Port of Entry from Juarez, Mexico into El Paso.

    A dog alerted to the woman, and Schaur Ives said federal agents stripped searched her at the facility, asked her to undress, to spread her genitalia and to cough. Female agents also allegedly pressed their fingers into her vagina looking for drugs.

    The woman claims they didn't discover anything during the on-site strip search, so they took her to University Medical Center of El Paso.

    "First, medical staff observed her making a bowl movement and no drugs were found at that point," Schaur Ives said. "They then took an X-ray, but it did not reveal any contraband. They then did a cavity search and they probed her vagina and her anus, they described in the medical records as bi-manual--two handed. Finally, they did a cat scan. Again, they found nothing."

    The ACLU claims the federal agents never secured a search warrant before probing or touching the woman.

    Once again police using a dog to give a false positive.
