A man in New Mexico was illegally subjected to a cavity search, including a colonoscopy, without his permission and without a legal warrant as the result of a simple traffic stop.

A man in New Mexico was illegally subjected to a cavity search, including a colonoscopy, without his permission and without a legal warrant as the result of a simple traffic stop.

As he was being detained and probed, Kennedy said Eckert never gave doctors his consent to perform the procedures and protested his treatment, which all arose from the simple traffic violation. The entire ordeal lasted for roughly 12 hours. TheBlaze has reached out to the Deming Police Department. This story will be updated should the department respond. ,,,

Kennedy [the man’s lawyer] also said the search warrant — in which there were legal concerns anyway — was carried out illegally because it was only valid in Luna County, N.M. The anal cavity search and other procedures were performed at the Gila Regional Medical Center, in Grant County. Further, she said the search warrant was only good through 10 p.m., but medical records show the preparation for the colonoscopy started at 1 a.m. the next morning. In theory, even if the search warrant were completely legal and compliant, it was no longer valid.

The man is suing the city of Deming, New Mexico, the specific officers who detained him, as well as the medical center and the doctors who performed the procedures against his will. I hope their careers are destroyed by this horrible act.

Conscious Choice cover

Now available in hardback and paperback as well as ebook!


From the press release: In this ground-breaking new history of early America, historian Robert Zimmerman not only exposes the lie behind The New York Times 1619 Project that falsely claims slavery is central to the history of the United States, he also provides profound lessons about the nature of human societies, lessons important for Americans today as well as for all future settlers on Mars and elsewhere in space.

Conscious Choice: The origins of slavery in America and why it matters today and for our future in outer space, is a riveting page-turning story that documents how slavery slowly became pervasive in the southern British colonies of North America, colonies founded by a people and culture that not only did not allow slavery but in every way were hostile to the practice.  
Conscious Choice does more however. In telling the tragic history of the Virginia colony and the rise of slavery there, Zimmerman lays out the proper path for creating healthy societies in places like the Moon and Mars.


“Zimmerman’s ground-breaking history provides every future generation the basic framework for establishing new societies on other worlds. We would be wise to heed what he says.” —Robert Zubrin, founder of founder of the Mars Society.


All editions are available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and all book vendors, with the ebook priced at $5.99 before discount. The ebook can also be purchased direct from my ebook publisher, ebookit, in which case you don't support the big tech companies and I get a bigger cut much sooner.

    I read this story the other day and found it to be one of the most outrageous cases of abuse of power and violation of innumerable civil rights that I have ever been made aware of. All concerned need to be sued both professionally and individually for many, many millions of dollars and fired. An outrage!

    So many things going on today with the mindless minions /toadies/lackeys and flat out psychopaths “working” for us, the taxpayers. It is so reminisent of Berlin, circa 1939, Too bad history is no longer taught in public education in this country.The only global enemy I fear is the USG, I’m saying this as an honorably discharged military vet for this country. I never thought i would see the this country rise and fall during the course of one generation , after all , the fall of Rome took centurys… sigh…just once, if people like these nazi’s would get thrown in jail , it would give me hope, instead, more likely, they will all be promoted…and so it goes….

    This incident had to involve at least two officer’s. They would never let a single officer transport a questioned drug dealer to a medical facility. They would send two to make sure that they have a chance for relief during the medical work(one can hit the head while the other watches the prisoner).

    Plus this HAD to involve at least three medical personnel. I can understand one officer being a loose cannon and having a go at this guy but his partner should have tried to stop him at some point.
    I can even accept one compliant doctor doing the examination but there had to be at least two other nurses in the area who could have tried to stop the all the extra exams.

    They are ALL equally guilty and they should all lose their jobs. Just because one angry cop tells me to do something doesn’t mean I have to go against medical ethics to do it. Search warrant or not. Warrants are NOT unlimited in scope and power.

    “Maybe the officers who did this don’t like him living in their community,” said the plaintiff’s lawyer. “He’s a white boy, a scraggly white boy, and all these officers are Hispanic. It’s a New Mexico thing.”

    Today it’s a New Mexico thing, but tomorrow it will become an American thing. Whites are assuming minority status in their own country and seeing a corresponding drop in their political clout, all thanks to Open Borders immigration policies enthusiastically supported to by both Democrats who want welfare-addicted voters and Republicans who want cheap, docile labor.

    It doesn’t take a genius to know that throughout history Very Bad Things have often happened to ethnic minorities, and to realize that reason whites are out of their minds to allow the mass importation of non-whites who will outnumber them by mid-century. But anyone who points this out is inevitably denounced as a Nazi, because noticing things is racist.

    Gee. I’ve been to Deming. Never had a body cavity search there. What were they looking for?

    Five years ago, we would have never thought such a thing possible. But now that we have the IRS harassing citizens for exercising their rights and the NSA snooping into everyone’s business, we are hardly surprised that police officers also have taken the hint from this administration (regime, because it ignores the laws and the Constitution). Maybe the police are the civilian army that Obama wanted (brown shirts, anyone?).

    About the time that such behavior was commonplace (in Berlin, circa 1939, as Orion said), we had a president telling us that we had nothing to fear but fear itself. Six and a half decades later, we have our government to fear.

    For god’s sake, don’t wear pants so tight that you might look like you are clenching your buttocks. (Yet another freedom lost to this regime.)

    And now , for the icing on the cake….
    ‘Eckert was sent a $6,000 bill for the medical procedures he involuntarily underwent, his lawyer says.’


    Police forced New Mexico scrap metal tradesman David Eckert to undergo two digital anal probes, three enema insertions and ultimately a colonoscopy after officers incorrectly assumed he was concealing drugs, according to a lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court on his behalf.
    No drugs were found by police or doctors at the Gila Regional Medical Center in Silver City, N.M. The exhaustive search began when Eckert allegedly rolled through a stop sign in Deming, N.M., on Jan. 2, 2013.

    I think “A” motto for this sorry story is what I learned as a young lad watching all those Twilight Zone episodes on TV , i.e.
