City, county settle NM 'anal probe' lawsuit
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- A city and county in southern New Mexico have settled a lawsuit filed by man taken to two hospitals and forced to have anal probes over suspicion of hiding drugs.
Attorney for David Eckert said Monday that Hidalgo County and the city of Deming recently settled their portion of a lawsuit for a total $1.6 million.
The lawsuit, filed against police and sheriff's officials in Deming and Hidalgo County, which borders Mexico, alleges Deming police sought a search warrant for Eckert because they thought he appeared to be clenching his buttocks when he got out of his car in January 2013.
Despite the body searches, no drugs were found.
Hidalgo County and Deming officials both declined to comment about the settlement to The Associated Press.
The lawsuit against doctors and the hospital in the case is still ongoing.

They got off easy.
for 1.6 million a cop can check my prostate instead of paying the doctor to do it!!
Those doing the probes should probably be glad the Stop Sign Runner didn’t eat any of those sugar free Gummi Bears that are all the rage today.
Somebody’s property taxes are about to go up...

No the cops would have shot them for impeding a police investigation.
Reason 856,465 to abolish the WOD.
Yep. These settlements ought to come out of their pension funds instead of making the taxpayers cough it up.
The cops should also register as sex offenders.
I’ll bet the department’s official stance is that the officers did nothing wrong.
That still leaves Gila Regional and Grant County, not to mention the doctor who participated in the rape. Another million or two should be forthcoming.
$1.6M hardly seems like justice but the money should come from the cops, doctors and hospital that did all this and not the local taxpayers.
What is shocking to me is HOW MANY people did cooperate and assist with the anal probe.
“How could SS soldiers follow such obviously horrible orders...?”
THIS IS HOW.
The cops said he was a bad guy, do the anal probe, and THEY OBEYED.
This is similar to how De Blasio got elected, and how very many people don’t care about Bengazi, etc.
I don’t think we’re now so different from 1930’s Germany.
official position = Bent over and grabbing your ankles?
