They stopped him on the basis of the roll through, then held him until they could get the search warrant. Then they took him out of the warrant's jurisdiction before doing the unreasonable. I do give props though to the doctor at the Deming hospital emergency room, who refused to do the cavity searches stating that it was unethical.

Yeah, but then the taxpayers who were not a part of this incident will still be losers. That said, maybe it has to happen in this case to get their attention to not tolerate this. And yes, criminal assault charges on these officers should probably be brought forth (especially since these searches were done outside the scope of the warrant's jurisdiction).

These types of abuses happen all the time, and very seldom are the culprits punished the way they would be if they weren't LEOs. So I'm not expecting much. But I do hope they go after the doctors as well as the police. It was a team effort.

Just for more fun reading, Houston Officer Cleared Of Wrongdoing In Killing Of Brian Claunch, Double Amputee. They couldn't control this wheelchair bound mentally disabled double amputee who was threatening them with a ball point pen without shooting him in the head. Just following procedures.

The doctors share some blame, but I put this mostly on the LEOs. It's pretty intimidating to be approached by police with guns and handcuffs, and refuse to do what they are asking you. Not every doc is going to have the principles and the courage of the first one who refused to do it.

Deming NM is a popular stopping off point for folks traveling through, I always stop there to gas up since they have the cheapest prices for miles. I did get pulled over once by Deming PD for speeding. With a smile the officer gave me 3 choices, pay the ticket, come back and fight it in court, or he would issue me a warning. Not a difficult choice . My guess is the driver was giving the cop a hard time and the cop decided to show him who the boss was. Certainly no excuse for what was done.

It's certainly possible, but it's still no excuse. I realize cops are human but someone being "difficult" is no license to treat them much more harshly. That said, the last two times I was pulled over (including once for passing a stopped school bus -- it's a long story), I went out of my way to be very polite and respectful and got off with a warning both times.

Shame on you. A preacher's husband should set a far better example.

Yes, he should. But I wasn't a preacher's husband at the time. So there.

I read the complaint, and it appeared to me that this man said something to diss the cop, and the vindictive cop was hell-bent on giving this man a tough time.

I hope they will put this cop in jail!

Not a cop. There were five(?) of them involved.

I personally hope they all get fired with no pension benefits and put on the sex offender registry.

Yes, there were more than one. Some already had an altercation with the plaintiff earlier.

This guy probably was no saint, but law enforcement officials could not be allowed to abuse their power this way.

A colonoscopy? How far in do they think the drugs could be pushed? After a few inches in the short rectum there is a 90 degree left turn to the Sigmoid Colon and in another few inches another 90 degree turn to the Descending Colon. Then how would you get it out without a string attached. If the cops were so sure then why not hold the person and wait it out.

The cops, police chief, doctors and judge should all be up for jail time and pay a large settlement.

Cheers!

A vindictive police officer? My heavens, what will happen next?

Turns out this has happened more than once.
