A New Mexico man named David Eckert was subjected to extensive anal torture at the hands of the Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Office, the City of Deming, New Mexico and Gila Regional Medical Center.
Because Eckert “clenched his buttocks” during a traffic stop – which arresting officers determined was probable cause to suspect that he was hiding drugs in his anus, which then prompted them to seek a warrant to search Eckert’s anal cavity.
They got the warrant, which is when the anal torture began.
And trust us … we’re talking about an experience far worse than the “Moon River” treatment received by Arnold Babar (a.k.a. Irwin F. Fletcher) in the movie Fletch.
Courtesy of KOB TV 4, here’s a recap of what happened to Eckert after his friendly neighborhood law enforcement officers got the warrant to invade his anus …
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.
Wow … the station also notes that “throughout this ordeal, Eckert protested and never gave doctors at the Gila Regional Medical Center consent to perform any of these medical procedures.”
You’re probably wondering right about now what sort of hardened crime Eckert committed to deserve such an invasive (and repeated) anal probing.
Glad you asked … according to KOB, he was pulled over for failing to come to a complete stop as he left a Walmart parking lot.

This is ridiculous. The officers involved should be immediately terminated and hopefully an investigation from the Federal level for civil rights violations begun.
He should receive no less than $10,000,000 in compensation, to be paid out of the department’s budget and any property or investments owned by the involved officers.
God help the town if this thing gets to a jury. Their insurance policy better be paid up.
If we had a private police force, this would never happen.
It might still happen, but not only would they be out of business afterwards, the offenders would be paying, & paying, & paying….no tax payer funds needed.
Blackwater Xe on line one.
lol…thing is….a customer other than government doesn’t hire them again despite the name change.
‘Oh, you shot my grandma at a checkpoint but changed your name? Ok, we’re good.’
Cell phone companies. Cable companies.
Damn good find Sic. + All the GAWD DANGED numbers.
Were these doctors out of their minds? Was the judge out of his mind to issue a search warrant on that basis? I thought only interim police chief Navarrow would think this was probable cause and reasonable.
It’s truly a shame that the clench wasn’t caused by an attempt to contain explosive diarrhea that Mr Eckert was able to hold until the start of the first digital probe.
“Sorry officer. I TOLD you I shouldn’t have had that sketchy breakfast burrito…”
Junk Truck. Woo hoo. What a ride.
Hey folks &Folks. If theres anyone else that does twitface, could you please tell them that @frankpytel is a good joe at heart? I think they sat I’m in the gulag. :)
Well. The gulag don’t seem so bad. They turnt me loose right quick I reckon. Hmmm?
Frank, just out of curiosity, who (singular or plural) in the hell did you piss off?
Who havent i pissed off. Shite man. :) You should check it out. Youve got some awesome one liners shifty. C ya :)
Welcome to OBAMACARE!
We have a winner!
PRO TIP :
If you are driving in the vicinity of the Seneca Wal*Mart, the car with “US SENATE” tags is very likely to run through stop signs. Especially if there is a visual police presence.
And ya’ want to guess if they all send him a bill for “medical services”…..
“DONT DIGITIZE ME BRO”
Nah. Needs work.
14th paragraph. $6G
Adding insult to injury?
Adequate words fail me….
And, finally, I can imagine the butts clenching by the defendents when a jury awards this guy his pot of gold!
TBG fervently hopes there is a real-life judge “Extreme Akim” in New Mexico.
were any of these procedures covered by the gentleman’s “obamacare approved” insurance policy? Regardless, I’m guessing that it is safe to say that he is not happy with his coverage, or his doctor.
But was there corn in his poo?
Well, let’s see here, first, the entire police department and hospital staff and granting judge should be given the exact same treatment, then fired.
The give the subject a boatload of money.
Then they should all be shot. Bunch of jack boot gestapo thugs.
Dr. Ruben Santiago warned you about his reasonable suspicion of your anal cavities, boys…
Mad props on the “Mayhem” avatar. The ad where he compliments the tailgater for buying the extra large container of lighter fluid brings tears to my eyes every time I see it.
He is my hero..I occasionally get accused being him. Some of the best ads on TV…
The worst part…They didn’t even buy him dinner first.
OMG. You just cant make this shit up. Article says this guy was raped at Gila Hospital.
On the plus side, he got a free cancer screening….and he’ll be rich after the lawsuit.
TBG wonders if, in similar situations, where cops, judges, and doctors realize that (with the certainty of a lawsuit coming up) their careers are over and they may face prison time…if the Mr Eckerts of this country just…disappear.
*Brazenly stolen from another commentator on a different blog*
“The cops invoked “The Pelosi” on Mr Eckert….he had to pass it to see what was in it.’
Another tragic casualty in the war on drugs. I don’t know about you, but a little collateral damage in war is something that should be accepted. All is fair in love and war, you know.
I mean, I didn’t hear many Republicans calling for a day of silence for the innocent women, elderly and children that died in the war on Terra.
When we dropped bombs on residential areas, machine gunned unarmed reporters, shot pregnant women on their way to the hospital, shot people for “turkey peeking” around walls, sealed off and dropped white phosphorus on the people of Falluja, it was no big deal for us to look the other way. Remember? Me neither.
Now, all of a sudden, in the longest war in American History – the drug war – we are balking at a few “embarrassing” anal probes?
Man up, people – we have a war to win!
I think I’ll go down to Washington state, get stoned out of my mind, and consider this topic in more depth.
