It’s like a scene from Breaking Bad where Hank is absolutely convinced there are drugs stuffed up his suspect’s rear end. In New Mexico (natch), real life police subjected a man to eight searches, including digital penetration of his anus, three enemas, two X-rays and a colonoscopy. And they still didn’t find any drugs! Reuters reports:
A New Mexico man has filed a lawsuit claiming police subjected him to repeated anal probes and enemas after a routine traffic stop because they suspected he was hiding drugs.
David Eckert, 54, claims violations of his civil rights in the lawsuit, which was filed in U.S. District Court in New Mexico in August but not make public until this week, his lawyers said on Wednesday.
“This suit is about stopping officers and doctors from subjecting people in their custody and control to unlawful sadistic medical procedures that violate the most intimate parts of the human body,” attorney Shannon Kennedy said.
