Man Subjected to 8 Anal Exams After Routine Traffic Stop

stop sign

A New Mexico man was subjected to 8 invasive and humiliating medical procedures – all for rolling through a stop sign.

On January 2, 2013, David Eckert did a little shopping at the Walmart in Deming. According to a federal lawsuit, Eckert didn’t make a complete stop at a stop sign coming out of the parking lot.  He was immediately stopped by police.

Eckert was asked to step out of his vehicle, and one of the officers patted him down – without reasonable suspicion that he was armed.

One of the officers claimed that Eckert’s posture was “erect and he kept his legs together,” which led him to believe Eckert may have been hiding drugs in his anal cavity.

Eckert’s car was seized and searched and no contraband was found, but a search warrant was obtained anyway.  That’s when things got really ugly.

According to the lawsuit, the search warrant included permission to search Eckert’s anal cavity.  The warrant did not mention what kind of medical procedure could be used – or that a medical procedure could be used at all.

An officer took Eckert to an emergency room in Deming, but the attending physician there would not perform the search, stating it was “unethical.”

Officers contacted Gila Regional Medical Center in Silver City, and physicians there agreed to perform the procedure. Eckert was admitted a few hours later.

Here’s what Eckert was subjected to at the hospital, according to medical records and lawsuit details provided to KOB 4 news:

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.

Eckert never gave doctors consent to perform any of those procedures; in fact, he protested the entire time.

His attorney, Shannon Kennedy, told KOB 4 that the public needs to know about this case:

“If the officers in Hidalgo County and the City of Deming are seeking warrants for anal cavity searches based on how they’re standing and the warrant allows doctors at the Gila Hospital of Horrors to go in and do enemas and colonoscopies without consent, then anyone can be seized and that’s why the public needs to know about this,” Kennedy said.

There are also major concerns about the search warrant. Kennedy says that the warrant was “overly broad and lacked probable cause.” It also was only valid in Luna County, where Deming is; not Grant County, where the Gila Regional Medical Center is located. So, all of the medical procedures were performed illegally and the doctors who performed the procedures did so with no legal basis and no consent from the patient.

In addition, the warrant expired at 10 p.m.  Medical records show that preparation for the colonoscopy started at 1 a.m. the following day – three hours after the warrant expired.

To add insult to injury, the Gila Regional Medical Center has billed Eckert for the procedures, and is threatening to send him to collections if he doesn’t pay.

Eckert is suing the officers and medical professionals involved in the case.

“This is like something out of a science fiction film, anal probing by government officials and public employees,” Kennedy said.

Indeed.  The question is, how long are we going to continue to bend over and take it?

      When this man wins his case against the Psychopaths and Mental Retards that are allegedly Police Officers, he should then sue the Judge that issued the warrant, the Police Officers, The Doctors that did this horrendous invasion on his body, bankrupt them, take their Homes, Bank Accounts, and throw the bastards out onto the street and make them all homeless, and make sure the Doctors are not allowed to practice again.

    LEO’s that do such things are usually found with champagne bottles inserted forcefully into their anus’s. Pretty up the scene some more and throw in some little bags of hard drugs along with some syringes. Tied up in a hotel room with a ball gag in their mouths, left for the cleaning lady to find.

    Make sure the thin blue line doesn’t cover up the humiliation by taking pictures and posting them on several social websites.

    I know I’ve said dozens of times on here, but the cops MUST be held accountable for unconstitutional behavior!

    i hope he wins a huge lawsuit and spends the money ruining the lives of those pieces of garbage in demming .. this is why people flip the fuck out and go on shooting rampages .

    • Da Gub’mint!

      LOL, totally. I actually find it strange that the poor guy who endured this sustained abuse HASN’T killed a bunch of people over it. I would. After the third enema I’d have grabbed one of the pig’s guns and given the doctor an “enema” with it.

    What is worse to you a cop or a middle east terrorist?

    To me a terrorist can kill you.

    A cop can also kill you, however a cop can ruin your life with false statements, planted drugs what ever. Cops are a menace. Give me a terrorist at least I know what I am getting.

    • Da Gub’mint!

      Cops only become cops because they know the badge means they can abuse anyone they want and get away with it. They’d rather torture than kill because they’re sick psychos. And they apparently really, really, REALLY love poo poo.

    1 in 20,000 people who undergo a colonoscopy end up with a perforated bowl, which can lead to the need for a colonoscopy bag. Thus, these procedures should NEVER be undertaken when not medically warranted. This is really insane!

    • TAG

      Those colonoscopy’s are the NEW cash cow to the bought sheep. Some people got smart about the boob squeeze,(those clinics used to be on every street corner. Now? Have pretty much disappeared!) and the completely worthless vaccines that kill and disable far more than they save and the MRI/Catscans mentality from everything to a splinter in your toe to you MIGHT have cancer! So they just have to re-coop the bucks somehow. So they sell us a colonoscopy! I can’t believe how many friends and family actually bought this crap! Tried to sell it to me several years ago. Told me they didn’t want to scare me, but I would surely die without one. LMFAO! Told those asses I wasn’t scared a bit! And they could keep their insane madness. At almost 60 I have never had ONE of their nonsense test and never will. And drug free while most that I know in my age bracket are ADDICTED! Hello idiots. I am alive and well and have a few more dollars in my pocket than you wanted me to! And now they want to FORCE me to buy insurance to a industry I don’t support. Our POTUS is not the only one screwing us. If you want health, avoid the “Patient for Life” and “Disease management” thing they stuff down our throat.

    • Da Gub’mint!

      the doctors who participated should have their licenses revoked and never practice again. Any doctor knows it’s not safe nor medically viable to torture someone this way. These doctors are basically nothing but rapists, and they should be charged with sexual assault, because that’s what they were really doing to this guy with the constant ass-play.

  • 1stworlder

    Even obongo didn’t get that much backdoor action when he went to the Chicago bathhouses. But then again he had to pay for it.

  • tward3

    Here is the mayor’s email address:

    I told him that if he didn’t fire all who are responsible then he is as much of a thug as his police.

  • drdave

    Theres got to be more to this story.
    No way this happened as described. I’ve been doing ER medicine for 22 years and have seen some some real strange stuff. Never anything like this.
    More will be revealed.

    • Guero

      1. This wasn’t the first time it happened. Look up “Timothy Young” – but he didn’t sue, yet.
      2. The same cops tried to frame Eckerts earlier, but failed.
      2. Homeland Security is involved. The three Hidalgo county deputies named in the suit were advisers from the Homeland Security border narcotics unit.

    • Da Gub’mint!

      It’s called ‘malpractice’; perhaps you’ve heard of it? And everyone knows that doctors get off on torturing people just as much as police do, so I believe this story completely.

  • fedup

    So some puke cop started this, some puke judge granted a search warrant and some puke in the hospital complied. It’s only a matter of time before someone who is treated this way retaliates, don’t be the puke in the hospital, the judge or the cop.

  • Salty

    Time to let the courts here ALL the evidence and not assume this guy was a known druggy to cops or conversely that the cops and medicos were acting will malice as the lawsuit contests. From the lawsuits I have seen, facts are stated therein entirely to the benefit of one side; however this one is a doozy. So let’s hope justice prevails because we clearly do not have all the facts.

  • TrotterOtter

    Talk about the state being a “pain in the ass”. This is further proof of regular abuse.


    Thanks for the email address of this POS. I will post it everywhere. Everyone, I repeat EVERYONE needs to flood the phone and email of this disgusting so-called police! I hope they seriously are prisoned for life and bubba has his way with all of them. I also hope their families get their share as well. Guilty by association. What sick

  • Justice

    Maybe this Guy will get a good lawyer who will perform the same treatment on the cops in court because they certainly have something inserted up there. Sounds like the Judge and clinic were involved too.

  • This is the perfect scenario for when one is talking about erosion of rights and privacy, and some incurious tool tells you, “Well, if you’re not hiding anything, what’s there to worry about?”

    David Eckert is either a better magician than David Copperfield, Criss Angel and the Amazing Randi all put together, or…


    Those nitwits should be shipped to Sherrif Joe Arpaio’s jail with a jar of vaseline taped to their backs.

  • O’Bummer!

    Law enforcement is coming in the back door (no pun intended) by using traffic violations as a carte blanche to do whatever they want to the driver. They will ask permission to search your car and if you deny it they will make you pay by calling in dogs and more officers, making you stand at the side of the road for hours. You are guilty until proven innocent because most of them are overzealous Barney Fife’s looking for any reason to make us suffer and in my state you are quite likely to get shot during a routine traffic stop if you say or do the slightest thing they don’t like. It used to be that cops might take some pride in their jobs and they could handle dangerous situations with no injuries to anybody involved – now, they simply shoot first and ask questions later. The worst thing that will happen is they will get to take paid time off which is called “suspended with pay”. They will back on the job in a few weeks.

    • Da Gub’mint!

      Suspension is just another paid vacation for a pig. They LOVE it.

  • Carlos

    What investigative geniuses these cops are!
    Couldn’t Eckert have been standing with posture “erect and he kept his legs together,” because he had back, stomachache, or leg pain? Maybe it was because the cops were a pain in the ass, with that to be proven later.
    Out of all these supposed “professional” people, the only real pro was the first Doc that said this is unethical.
    All I know is if I were Eckert, those cops should be really worried about payback, and I don’t mean in a courtroom.

    • RickE.

      I agree Carlos! Payback is a definite possibility, as most folks will get tired of this very quickly!

      THIS IS RAPE! And should be treated as such with a right to defending one’s self from rouge, crazed animals that wear police-type costumes.

      If one wants a good education on the sadistic morons called cops, go to and see what they’re saying about all of this!

  • Mustang

    What kind of moron judge would sign a warrant with no probable cause? judges who sign off on these ridiculous warrants must be held accountable as well. This is a truly outrages and unbelievable ordeal that would be hard to believe could occur in Juarez, MX or a third world banana republic. Deming residents must demand resignations of the chief of police, sherriff, prosicutor, and the judge who placed his name on the warrant.

  • anonymous.

    This is absolutely disgusting.they basically raped this man.the first examination shoild have never been done,based on the fact that the warrant wasnt valid in that city.but at worst once the doctors x rayed his stonach they should have stopped
    Immediately.instead they repeatedly penetrated his ass,and forced him to shit in front of people,in a disgusting,degrading and humilating manner.theyre conduct is not only illegal,but unethical,unprofessional,and immoral.they should be all fired andheavily fined.the cops should be locked up.but we all know they wont be becauae yhey,are above the law that they are supposed to uphold and enforce?!

  • RabbleRabbleRabbleMe

    Sounds like the cops AND the doctors need to all be ripped new assholes, with a large, unsanded, gouged, wooden baseball bat. And I’ll do it to them FOR FREE!

    • MikeG

      The lawsuit will be fantastic!


    My as s is full of sh it!

  • SorryJeffersonWeTried

    The good people of that county and town need to march on the police station and place the responsible cops under citizens’ arrest. Same with the docs at the ER. Until we show these lawless bureaucrats we will not allow this type of behavior from those entrusted to keep us safe, they will continue to abuse both the system and ourselves.
