Why we're staying the Hell out of New Mexico

Apparently, the various
law-enforcement agencies in the great state of New Mexico have decided that their chief responsibility is to make ray Kelly's NYPD seem reasonable.

New Mexico investigates officers who shot at van carrying five kids

Yes, 5 kids. Police opened fire into a minivan containing five children. It was not, as you might assume, being driven by Pablo Escobar, but by a lady who is the mother of five children. Who was guilty of driving over the speed limit, which is apparently a capital offense in New Mexico now.

And it's not just the unwarranted violence that you might sadly have come to expect from police departments these days, there's also the probing. Apparently New Mexico cops have some sort of sick probing fetish that they're enacting on their citizens against their will.

New Mexico Anal Probe: David Eckert Files Lawsuit After Undergoing X-Rays, Enemas And Colonoscopy During Drug Search

Oh, and also genital torture.

ACLU Files Lawsuit Against New Mexico Police For Allegedly Spraying Mace On Woman’s Genitals

Marlene Tapia says that she was arrested and forced to strip naked for a contraband examination. The officers at the Metropolitan Detention Center (Bernalillo County New Mexico) claimed that she had a plastic baggie in her vagina and, according to the lawsuit, forced her to bend over and as punishment

Absolutely horrifying!

 Almost as horrifying as this:

According to the lawsuit and Eckert’s medical records, which were released to KOB, Eckert’s abdominal area was X-rayed twice, doctors performed a colonoscopy on him, an enema was inserted anally three separate times and doctors examined his anus twice with their fingers.

Want to guess what heinous crime Eckert committed to be subjected to this degrading inhuman treatment? He ran a stop sign.

As KOB-TV reports, police stopped David Eckert on Jan. 2 after he failed to come to a complete stop at a stop sign outside a Walmart parking lot in Deming, N.M. Things began to go wrong when the authorities asked him to exit his vehicle.
“They say when he stepped out of his car he was standing in a manner that looked as if he was clinching his buttocks,” Shannon Kennedy, Eckert’s attorney, told KOB-TV, according to CBS Las Vegas.

So, if you do go to New Mexico, obey every traffic rule to the letter. And if you do get pulled over, don't stand with clenched buttocks. The punishment for those crimes is horrific.
