Man Subjected To Forced Enemas & Colonoscopy For Clenching Buttocks “Suspiciously”

For this one, you’ll need to duct tape your head to prevent it from exploding, as John Lofton would say.

I’ll just get right into it, because there are a lot of details, and it just gets worse and worse. Some guy in New Mexico was leaving a Wal-Mart parking lot and made the egregious mistake of not coming to a full and complete stop at a stop sign. So, the cop that was lying in wait around the corner pulled him over.

According to the police, after they ordered this man David Eckert to exit his vehicle (for whatever reason), he was “suspiciously” flexing his gluteus maximus, making it look like he must have been hiding something like drugs in his rectum. That’s all the cops needed to secure a search warrant from a judge to subject this poor individual to extremely humiliating procedures for the next 14 hours. The following is taken from KOB4, a local news channel:

While [at Gila Regional Medical Center in Silver City], 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.  

Can it get any worse than this? Yes it can. The hospital is billing Eckert for the procedures they conducted on him and threatening to send a collection agency after him if he doesn’t pay up.

Yes, of course he’s suing them. And the Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Office and Deming City Police Department. But the attorney representing the police says he’s confident that the police will prevail in court. They didn’t do anything wrong. Besides, according to Hidalgo Police chief Gigante, “We follow the law in every aspect, and we follow policies and protocols that we have in place.”

And to think, all Eckert did was roll through a stop sign.
