It appears that the police in Deming, New Mexico have done forced medical procedures on more than one person.

Armed with what police said was probable cause and a search warrant, officers took Young to the Gila Medical Center in Silver City, N.M. The name of the hospital may sound familiar because it’s the exact same hospital Eckert was taken for the invasive hunt for drugs in his body that lasted more than 12 hours. Young was then reportedly subjected to X-rays and an anal exam. They found no drugs. Young, just like Eckert, says he did not consent to any of the procedures, which were performed in a county not covered by the search warrant obtained by police.

I suspect that more victims of this type of police abuse are going to be found.

    Disgusting. Finally, a police force the DOJ SHOULD be investigating.

    Microscopes and dark places come to mind, this is an absurd action by a local law enforcement agency that needs to be sued by the ACLU, in addition to the lawsuits already filed against the entities responsible for these illegal searches. Welcome to a fundamentally transformed America!
