Second Victim Of Deming, NM Cops' Anal Probe Patrol Comes Forward (Will Grigg)
Thursday November 7th, 2013
KOB News has identified a second victim of Deming's Anal Probe Patrol. A man named Timothy Young was stopped for allegedly making a turn without signalling, and was forced to undergo the same routine that Eckert experienced: He was abducted by deputies and taken to Gila Regional Medical Center for abdominal X-rays and a rectal exam. As in Eckert's case, this was done without the victim's consent, and outside of the jurisdiction covered in the search warrant.
Leo, the "K-9 Officer" used in both cases, is not certified as a drug detection dog. The certification expired in 2011, and has not been renewed. Shannon Kennedy, the attorney representing Eckert, reports that there is evidence that Leon "has had false alerts in the past."
