Forced Colonoscopy Victim Gets $1.6 Million
A New Mexico man forced by police to undergo a colonoscopy has settled his legal case against officials from Hidalgo County and Deming, N.M.

I would like to know How many people lost their job over this. This cost the taxpayers of Deming almost one million dollars. I think all the people involved and their bosses should be fired. I also hope that policies and procedures have been changed so this never happens again. Be responsible and fire these people.
