The search warrant in no manner required any doctor or medical personnel to do anything at all. For them to have gone on with X-rays, colonostomy, and the rest so radically crossed the malpractice line I would obliterate the hospital and any medical personnel involved in a judgment - including personally against those involved - that the hospital's and professionals' insurance couldn't possibly cover it. Literally hundreds of millions of dollars.
Why? To make it ABSOLUTELY CLEAR to medical personnel and facilities everywhere that if they decide to get their kicks by abusing patients believing a search warrant gives them permission to do so - though in no manner requires they do anything at all, it will cost them everything.
Again, NOT ONE of those medical personal nor the hospital had ANY legal obligation to do any of this. NONE. They did it because they wanted to and thought the search warrant allowed them to. As the first facility's doctor who refused stated, doing so was "unethical."
Since the procedures were done ENTIRELY without consent, ENTIRELY against the man's stated wishes, ENTIRELY with NO potential medical benefit and WITH potential medical harm, plus inflicting pain plus drugging the man (which also carries a medical risk), they should be economically obliterated as a lesson so at every training seminar in the country ALL medical personnel are informed to never, ever do anything like this. In addition, it would inform insurance companies to advise such professionals and facilities that their malpractice policies for the future will NOT cover medical personnel nor the facility becoming employed in non-consentual evasive procedures for law enforcement UNLESS there is a medical need and benefit for the person actually involved.
What is despicable media coverage is hiding the name of the judge who ordered this. The proper role of a judge would instead have been to order the police not do this.
Well, if this isn't proof that space aliens have infiltrated our police force, I don't know what is.
"you're better off on Stormfront discussing how evil brown men are taking innocent white flowers." Infinite Chaos
It is an indefensible lawsuit.
There was NO search warrant, as it had expired.
Nor was it valid if not, because the "search" was done in a different jurisdiction that the judge nor police had any jurisdiction in.
The police response to the federal suit said the man was "known to hide drugs in his anus." What that really means is the police did this because they believed he was involved in drugs by rumor and made up all this crap to try to get him - and if not to so abuse him that he'll leave town. Small towns can be like that. If they don't want you there, the police and authorities WILL run you off by constant harassment.
They became so radically fixed on getting him that all ethics, morality and legalities went out the window. At least they didn't drive him out in the desert near the border and just gun him down claiming he had assaulted an officer and had a knife or something.
What ANNOYS me is that it will be taxpayers who suffer. NOTHING will happen to the judge, those officers or the medical personnel personally. That aspect of civil law needs to change.
This went on for 14 hours and past the expiration of the search warrant, plus in a jurisdiction that judge nor police had any jurisdiction over.
And more... they took him across a county line, which not only is outside the jurisdiction BUT also required a hearing first.
Since the hospital and medical personnel billed him, they also can not claim some good-faith motive as they had a personal and professional personal profit motive.
