Man who endured 3-enema traffic stop awarded $1.6 million

 

"It was medically unethical and unconstitutional," his lawyer, Shannon Kennedy, told the Associated Press. "He feels relieved that this part is over and believes this litigation might make sure this doesn't happen to anyone else."

Eckert was pulled over for failing to yield at a stop sign last January. When Eckert appeared to be "clutching his buttocks," police called in a K-9 to the scene, despite the fact that the dog's license expired in 2011.

The dog indicated there were drugs in the car and police obtained a warrant for an anal cavity search, despite finding no other evidence of drugs in the car.

The following exams were then performed on Eckert at Gila Regional Medical Center, where Eckert was taken after a first hospital refused to examine him on the grounds that such a search was "unethical."

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.

The cops and docs illegally rape this citizen, the taxpayers get to pay the victim a much-deserved 1.6 million, while at least one LEO involved gets promoted?!? Wow. I hope the victim uses some of his 1.6 million to hire the best lawyer to personally sue each individual doctor and police officer in Civil Court.

I would have been verbally abusing the cops the entire time. Not yelling, but just telling them was sick POSs they were using the most degrading language possible. "Oh you guys get off on this, don't you? You want to eat my feces, don't you?"Only 1000 times more crude.

I would have been laughing as they were "searching through the stool". I know it would have sucked to have to have been violated like that. But he knew he didnt have any drugs on him, and the assholes are like "we need to make him shit one more time and then we can dig through it!" Ok chief, lets go to Taco Bell and get a couple Meximelts and let the search commence. And how do you still have shit in you after enemas that there is enough shit on the third that they still need to search it??
