Safe Mode: On
Fail to stop, get a cavity search.

What began as a simple traffic stop
ended in a humiliating and nightmarish ordeal for a New Mexico man. It
won’t come as a surprise to most people why the man has now filed a
federal civil rights lawsuit.
The incident began on Jan. 2 as David
Eckert was leaving the local Walmart in Deming, N.M. He reportedly
failed to make a complete stop at a stop sign, prompting police to pull
him over.
The officers asked him to step out of
the vehicle and claim the man appeared to be clenching his buttocks,
Eckert’s attorney, Shannon Kennedy, told TheBlaze. It is unclear why
police removed him from the vehicle in the first place. However, because
the cops believed he was clenching his buttocks, they took it as reason
to suspect him of hiding narcotics in his anal cavity.Police officers detained Eckert while they sought a search warrant for an anal cavity search.
“What is so strange about this case is
they held him with no evidence,” Kennedy said. “They seized him to
collect evidence, to go on a fishing expedition on someone’s body.”
Upon securing the warrant, Deming
police officers took the man to an emergency room, but hit their first
snag when a doctor refused to perform the anal cavity search because he
believed it to be “unethical.”
So police tried again at the Gila Regional Medical Center in Silver City, N.M., where doctors agreed to the search.


KOB-TV outlined the disturbing series of events that occurred next, details confirmed by medical records and official documents provided to TheBlaze by Eckert’s attorney:


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.
Kennedy told TheBlaze these are undisputed facts from medical records, not claims made by her client.


As he was being detained and
probed, Kennedy said Eckert never gave doctors his consent to perform
the procedures and protested his treatment, which all arose from the
simple traffic violation.
The entire ordeal lasted for roughly 12 hours.


TheBlaze has reached out to the Deming Police Department. This story will be updated should the department respond.



“It’s a nightmare, its unfathomable.
You could never anticipate this happening in the United States of
America,” Kennedy said, adding that in 18 years of practicing civil
rights law, “this may be the most egregious case I have ever seen with
law enforcement abuse.”
Kennedy also said the search warrant —
in which there were legal concerns anyway — was carried out illegally
because it was only valid in Luna County, N.M. The anal cavity search
and other procedures were performed at the Gila Regional Medical Center,
in Grant County.
Further, she said the search warrant
was only good through 10 p.m., but medical records show the preparation
for the colonoscopy started at 1 a.m. the next morning. In theory, even
if the search warrant were completely legal and compliant, it was no
longer valid.
Eckert is suing the city of Deming and
Deming police officers Bobby Orosco, Robert Chavez and officer
Hernandez. He is also suing Hidalgo County deputies David Arredondo,
Robert Rodriquez and Patrick Green; Deputy District Attorney Daniel
Dougherty and the Gila Regional Medical Center, including Robert Wilcox,
M.D. and Okay Odocha, M.D.

  • Shit happens. It must have been a nightmare. The guy may get millions. The people who broke the rules should pay the millions, not the tax payer.

      The people that broke the rules most likely don't have millions. I have no problem with tax dollars paying for a judgement, but these men working another day in a government job, I do.

I think gov't workers don't rate unemployment if they get fired for assaulting people and shit. Let them suffer.

My conclusion is i need to move me, and my wife, to a sparely populated community where you know your neighbors, there are very few of them, and they live several hundred yards away or further. Living in a city just SUCKS for so many reasons (as you already seem to realize). Maybe you just need a new area, a new job and a change of perspective...the problem with life is the More..

    • @Dirtpimp some people automatically think when a case like this hits the media there's an automatic big payout. In the US the lawyer has to prove "DAMAGES" i.e. exactly what harm did the plaintiff suffer? And then the lawyers and judge "negotiate" because they have to put some dollar figure on that. Typically previous cases from the same state, or the USA are used for comparison in the argument. He will probably get something, of course, it could be chump change after th More..

    Obviously that is a joke (I think).....but disbarment for the judge that signed the search warrant, firing of all police involved (Plus jail time and civil lawsuit without immunity), including their supervisors AS WELL AS all local police Chiefs in every district this occurred. The hospitals should also be sued for an equal amount and the doctors involved should lose their right to practice medicine, the Mayor should be held accountable wi More..
