“While stopped, Eckert was required to exit the vehicle by police officers intent on searching his car. Police claimed that a dog told them that Eckert’s seat smelled like narcotics and claimed that his butt cheeks appeared to be clenched.
Eager to get an arrest, police conspired to search Eckert’s anus for contraband. They took him into custody and got a judge to stamp out a search warrant for Eckert’s intestines.”
Even after being refused at a local hospital, 14 hours later Mr. Eckert’s rights and body have been severely violated. How does something like this happen? And of course, absolutely nothing found in his possession. And to add insult to injury the joke of a medical institution that facilitated this atrocity is now charging him $6000 in medical bills for this assault and they are threatening him with collections if HE doesn’t pay. What can we do about this? What can be done to support this man and others who experience similar abuses?
