4 On Your Side investigates traffic stop nightmare

4 On Your Side investigates traffic stop nightmare (Caution - Story about anal search)

Updated: 11/05/2013 5:27 PM By: Chris Ramirez, KOB Eyewitness News 4

This 4 On Your Side investigation looks into the actions of police officers and doctors in Southern New Mexico.

A review of medical records, police reports and a federal lawsuit show deputies with the Hidalgo County Sheriff's Office, police officers with the City of Deming and medical professionals at the Gila Regional Medical Center made some questionable decisions.

The incident 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.

I would have told the officers, "gimme your hat, I have to take a dump."

Anyway with Obamacare we are all going to be in for plenty of anal cavity searches, so get over it.......

I know that at least one person that will be in for such a search soon:

“While at Ronald Reagan Airport on Wednesday, Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner (R-Wisc.) was overheard talking on the phone. During his conversation, he told the person on the other end of the line that Michelle Obama has a big butt.”

The POS judge is to blame for this! Imagine if you have stomach indigestion, cramps for a delayed dump and a POS LEO sees you cramping-up, you can get hauled off to a hospital for a colonoscopy in this country !!!!!!!

I think tightening one's core muscles would be a natural response to someone poking around their privates. Cops use this "clenching" excuse all the time to justify a canine search of the vehicle. If they don't find drugs they invariably say the dog alerted to the driver's seat, all in order to justify a stirp search of the driver.

Regarding a situation like this, when the perpetrators are government agents, if people are not willing or are afraid to take justice into their own hands, then justice will absolutely be denied.

These people need to be punished physically not just sued.

Here you go!

how do you even rate an unwilling police brutality doctor complicit and executed anal probing and x-raying and colonoscoping?!!? Im not sure how Id rate that, maybe a minus one billion, but the least you can get is 1 star.... you don't deserve no star you should be on your way to jail in my opinion. how utterly despicable of you people.

Violates patient's rights as long as police say it's "ok" with a warrant. Avoid him simply for his willingness to put persons through un-needed and unethical treatments when previous medical evidence showed no reason for it.

This is the physician who forcibly put a man under general anesthesia and performed a colonoscopy at the request of the police, searching for drugs that didn't exist, WITHOUT THE CONSENT OF THE PATIENT. You're a monster and a sexual predator. I hope you lose everything you own, your ability to practice medicine forever, are criminally charged, spend the next 20 years in jail and are labeled a predatory sex offender. You are the worst of the worst that exist on this planet.

the warrant the police had wasn't even for this county AND was already expired. even so they should not have put that man through all that....2 x-rays, 2 physical anal searches by hand, 3 enemas, and a colonoscopy; ALL without consent. yeah don't go here Edit: a simple x-ray would have sufficed if the warrant was just

Make sure you don't clench your buttocks around him or the cops in Hidalgo county. Unethical doctor. Can't be trusted

This doctor is a MONSTER. This doctor should have his license revoked. When you receive your medical degree and your license you swear to the ethical treatment of your patients. Everything this doctor did was unethical, he violated this mans rights, no matter if he was under pressure from police or not, he could of refused to perform the procedure, as it was against his sworn agreement that he signed to become a doctor.

Those were all done with Google+ accounts which means most of them were done with zero anonymity.

The doctors who performed this at the Gila Regional Medical Center are in serious jeopardy of losing their licenses.

I stopped driving a personal vehicle soon after 9/11...one positive side effect besides the healthful aspects of walking is that there`s less opportunity to interact with thugz in blue...

Still, I`ve been id`d run through the system and patted down on several occaisons for suspicious walking...any excuse for an Obama boy to fondle strange asscheeks will do...

Horrible! I just read for the first time in your link above that the victim is 63 years old!

That ordeal would have been enough to kill many people that age. Complete sadistic disgrace!

One report I saw had the victim’s age as 54.

I’m not sure why there is a discrepancy.

BTW. When did running a stop sign rate “get out of the car?”

Would appreciate if some of our law enforcement types would let me know. And “just because we can” is not a real response.

Also, when did they start the “school of clenched buttocks?” I bet that one is a hoot. Probably got out of that one, got drunk and laughed at all the hi-jinks you could put innocent drivers through. Oops. My bad. He wasn’t innocent. He ran a stop sign.

Ever seen the movie “Super Troopers”. It’s got nothing on this.

Well, y’know. It’s that drugs are so evil that absolutely ALL means are necessary to get at ‘em. If a few innocents fall by the wayside, then that’s just the price we have to pay.

I know it's fun to paint that kind of imagery with the boot-lickers, but we need to keep in mind that many of these people are part of what passes for "civilized" society in north america. Ever see those old films taken at the end of WWII where the German civilians were marched through the liberated concentration camps and then made to help bury the dead in the most proper manner available in that kind of environment? That was Ike's way of telling the German civilians "You knew this was happening and did nothing to stop it."

Thank for bringing back reality to me.

Many times it is easy to stoop to the deniers level rather than being persistent in the face of their criticisms.

Either way, he's old enough to have suffered horribly from the stress; and at that age, he hardly fits the profile of a typical drug mule. And why would anyone have drugs in his butt coming out of WalMart? I could see it if he was going into a known drug distribution zone, but a family-oriented big box store with children and cameras all over it? No.

My only confusion was the different reports on the victim’s age. Not that it makes any difference regarding the atrocity that was forced upon this man, and at least once other in October 2012.

The city police, the sheriffs deputies, the judge, the doctors, any other medical participants in this outrage......they should be brought up on criminal charges and, if found guilty, sent to prison for a long time.
