I read a more extensive article, and not only was this guy violated physically and his rights violated, he was later sent a bill by the medical facility for all the exams, which was thousands and thousands of dollars.

This is one of those stories that is really unbelievable. Except that it actually happened! It involved not only the original cop but other law officials, medical staff at local hospitals and if I remember right, the city attorney. There was only one person who refused to sanction the search in all of this. The cop simply took the person somewhere else to find someone who had fewer scruples or was more easily intimidated by the uniform. Everybody else bought into the cops story and cooperated.
Look up these studies: The Milgram experiment and the Stanford Prison experiment for an idea of how little personal resistance most of us have to authority figures and you can see how something like this can occur. I find it terrifying.
The first article borders on unbelievable, the second one has everyone out of line, shooting at an occupied vehicle when no danger to life exists is bad, bad, bad.
