War On Drugs Leads to Forced Enema. This is no sick joke and really happened to this poor bloke in City of Deming located in Hildago County, New Mexico. Police stopped David Eckert, age 54 and suspected him of carrying drugs inside his rectum. Police handcuffed, obtained a warrant from Luna County and took Eckert to hospital number one, which refused. So Police drove outside of Luna County, 50 miles to hospital number two, Gila Regional Medical Center, which is located in Grant County. There at Gila Medical Center, the physicians and nurse carried out these heinous procedures.
Eckert ended up with a $1.6 Million Dollars settlement from the City and County. In truth, that is not even enough money for the absolute horror, disgust, humiliation and brutality that Eckert endured. It should have been $16 Million Dollars.

War on Drugs Leads to Forced Enema. The police then drove Eckert 50 miles to the emergency room of the Gila Regional Medical Center, where doctors took X-rays of Eckert’s abdomen and performed a rectal examination. No drugs were found, so doctors performed a second rectal exam, again unavailing.
Doctors then gave Eckert an enema and forced him to have a bowel movement in the presence of a nurse and policeman, according to a lawsuit that Eckert filed. When no narcotics were found, a second enema was administered. Then a third.
The police left the privacy curtain open, so that Eckert’s searches were public, the lawsuit says.
After hours of fruitless searches, police and doctors arranged another X-ray and finally anesthetized Eckert and performed a colonoscopy.
“Nothing was found inside of Mr. Eckert,” the police report notes. So after he woke up, he was released — after 13 hours, two rectal exams, three enemas, two X-rays and a colonoscopy.
Eckert, continuously protested and did not consent, to the following.

- 2 digital rectal exams – no narcotics found
- 3 forced enemas – no narcotics found in feces
- Colonoscopy under sedation – no narcotics found
- The hospital sent Eckert a $6,000 bill.
