Police Anal Rape Search May Have Happened Because Victim was White

Posted By Daniel Greenfield On November 7, 2013 @ 1:20 pm In The Point | 52 Comments

It would seem that New Mexico got its own Abner Louima case. And this time the race of the victim is white.

The horrifying story about a man who was subject to repeated anal probes over a completely baseless suspicion that he was harboring drugs because he was “clenching his buttocks” has been widely reported already

While there, Eckert was subjected to repeated and humiliating forced medical procedures.  A review of Eckert’s medical records, which he released to KOB, and details in the lawsuit show the following happened:

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.

…but his lawyer is saying that the stop was racial.

The apparent justification for the search, Kennedy said, was that police believed Eckert’s buttocks were clenched during the traffic stop.

But, she said, it’s also possible the officers just didn’t like how her client looks.

“Maybe the officers who did this don’t like him living in their community,” said Kennedy. “He’s a white boy, a scraggly white boy, and all these officers are Hispanic. It’s a New Mexico thing.”

I blame white privilege.
