    Asshole police

    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 to medicine.

    And then…

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

    Yeah, we know how those work.

    4 On Your Side investigates traffic stop nightmare

    ☀"This is like something out of a science fiction film, anal probing by government officials and public employees,"

    Throughout this ordeal, Eckert protested and never gave doctors at the Gila Regional Medical Center consent to perform any of these medical procedures.

    ☀Probable cause... 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.

    ☀Medical records show the prepping for the colonoscopy started at 1 a.m. the following day, three hours after the warrant expired.

    Eckert got billed by the hospital for the procedures, and they’ve threatened to send him to collections if he doesn’t pay.

    4 On Your Side reveals another traffic stop nightmare

    ☀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.

    Man, woman forced to pay hospital bills after drug strip search
    A southern New Mexico man who was pulled over for not making a complete stop was taken to two hospitals and forced to have anal probes, three enemas, two body X-rays and a colonoscopy because police thought he was hiding drugs, according a federal lawsuit.

    In El Paso, a woman crossing the border was stripped searched, vaginally probed then taken to the hospital for more invasive tests, a forced bowel movement, X-rays and scans, the American Civil Liberties Union says.

    No drugs were found in either of the cases, and both people are now being billed for thousands of dollars by the hospitals, according to attorneys, who say the cases raise serious question about law enforcement practices along the border.

    "It's terrifying," said Laura Schauer Ives, an attorney with the ACLU in Albuquerque.

    Man sedated during search gets $125,000
    A man who was forcibly sedated so his body could be searched for drugs that were never found will receive $125,000 under an out-of-court settlement reached recently with Albany County and Albany Medical Center Hospital.

    A Complete Lack of Accountability in the Criminal Justice System dwr

    Radley Balko has a disturbing piece about the recent horrific anal probe case in New Mexico: Anal Probes And The Drug War: A Look At The Ethical And Legal Issues

    Oddly, according to constitutional scholars and medical ethicists I’ve consulted, the indignities imposed upon Eckert and Young were both illegal and unethical. And yet it also may be that (a) none of the law enforcement officials or medical personnel responsible for the violations are likely to be held accountable in any way, and (b) they could probably do it all again tomorrow, and still wouldn’t likely be held accountable.

    Our system is so corrupt, largely due to the drug war, that the rule of law has become a joke. Public officials can break the law and violate human rights without consequence, while average citizens have to plea bargain to avoid massive sentences for minor drug charges.

    This is another huge motivating factor for ending the drug war. A chance to clean up the criminal justice system.

    Second Anal Probe Lawsuit Being Filed Against N.M. Police

    Conviction overturned after police illegally paralyze man, administer invasive probe


    They can always buy a judge or lie for a warrant... Or fabricate one as a pup. Raise it on free Falwell college or Robertson U. Groom them to follow orders. Filling county and local seats in all 50 states. If the History books were accurate we wouldn't be surprised about much a judge can or will do. Or cops, doctors and especially politicians.

    I do raise my eyebrows and wonder if all prohibitionists are closet sodomites. Anal probes for the message it sends the kids, like their UFO inhabitants seem to like doing to them. Prison gang rape deterrents are just part of why you shouldn't break the law, to them. Way too over zealous to be straight and comfortable with heterosexuality. You know what they say about converts...
