    This was posted on another thread. Seriously, you don't think the guy had a 10" revolver shoved up his butt, do you? C'mon! It was either concealed elsewhere on his person, and the cops failed to find it in their "custody/intake search," or the suspect was telling the truth about finding it in the bunk-bed.

    I know there's no way to get a 10" revolver through a functioning magnetometer, and while implausible, that method is certainly possible. Just ask any ER attending about Foreign Object Removals.

    Agreed. The mag would have detected the weapon. The question to ask about this article is: "Gee, don't the perps have to walk through a magnetometer before they are brought into the booking area of the police station?" :confused:

    One of my anatomy professors used to be an ER nurse, and she loved to regale us with stories of her craziest and wildest patients.

    Trust me: a 10" revolver in a rectum is nothing. Trust me.

    I have no doubt that it's possible, especially if the guy is on drugs.
