The Piercing Truth

This is right from the dictionary and seems to describe Albuquerque, Berry and Schultz. Fascism (f ash ,izem) noun An authoritarian right wing system of government and/or social organization. (in general use) extreme right wing, authoritarian, chauvinistic and/or intolerant views or practices. Fascism tends to include a belief in the supremacy of one group over another, national, ethnic, especially social strata or monetarily; a contempt for democracy, an insistence on obedience to a powerful leader, and a strong demagogic approach.

Change is Needed

As reported in the Albuquerque Journal, Councilman Ken Sanchez proposed for one million dollars to be set aside.  This would provide a raise for the Albuquerque Police Department (APD); an increase of 2.7 million dollars. The question is, where is the money going to come from? 

We all know if the APD didn't have to pay out tens of millions of dollars in lawsuits, there would be plenty of money.  If the City didn't waste money redoing projects that were never done right in the first place, there would be plenty of money. If the City didn't waste money on this joke of a recycle program, there would be plenty of money.  Here is one suggestion that may help, exclude the top brass from any pay raise(s). 

You see Councilman Sanchez, any study ever done shows money is not the main reason people stay at a job.  People want to enjoy their work, feel respected by their supervisors, and feel secure in their position(s). You have none of this with the APD!   Top brass give themselves bonuses and take away from the rank and file officer the money was meant for in the first place.  What kind of leader does this?   These people are not leaders they only take care of themselves.

Our Eyes tell us they have heard top brass bragging that the only reason they are there is to add to their already huge retirement.  Our Eyes in the police department tell us they are afraid of their job, it’s like walking on egg shells, waiting for the next shoe to drop.  They are not afraid of the bad guys, they are afraid of the top brass, the good ol’ boys.  

Councilman Sanchez, thank you for trying to help. It is a step in the right direction, but until the culture changes at the APD and appointed politicians stop running the department, things will not change, and officers will continue to leave.

Cottage Industry

We at THE EYE have been hearing complaints for a long that District Court/Family Court is a cottage industry.  At first we didn't know what to think about this, all the complaints Our Eyes gave us were from anonymous sources.  Now since a brave young mother has come forward we can see why all our sources were anonymous.  The mother’s name is Holly Salzman but more about her case in Family Court later. 

Our Eyes tell us if you are unfortunate enough to be heading for a divorce, you want to avoid litigation at all costs and more so if children are involved (Family Court in Albuquerque).  Our Eyes tell us if children are involved you will be appointed a guardian by the court for the children.  This is supposed to protect the children, however, costs a great deal of money.  Both spouses are required to be tested by a sociologist and another separately for the child/children, again costing a large sum of money.  After that, a wise person is appointed to work out disputes, costing additional money and last but not least, a communications expert is appointed so you can attend parenting classes.

Our EYES tell us that it is always the same so called experts that are appointed and for the most part the same attorneys.  You are free to hire an attorney of your choice, however, attorneys we have spoken to want nothing to do with Family Court.  Our Eyes tell us that the costs involved cause people to raid their child’s/children’s’ college fund(s), take a second mortgage on their homes, top out credit cards and finally go bankrupt.   Of course we all can see how this really helps the family’s who are stuck in this cottage industry. 

We clearly see how this fills the pockets of all the so called experts.  Our thanks to KRQE CH13 for their fearless reporting on this subject; KRQE, Kim Holland reported on the brave mother who decided enough was enough, Holly Salzman.   Salzman was assigned by the court a communications expert for parenting classes.  Enter Mary Pepper, the expert, who would hold her classes in the Public Library to keep cost down, as stated by Pepper.  Only one problem with this, it’s against the law to conduct business in a public library.  Then Pepper would start each class with a prayer, against the Constitutional Rights of Salzman.  After each class when payment was due Salzman had to pass cash under the table to Pepper, so no one could see.  Pepper stated she could not accept cash in a public library, Pepper knew it was against the law.  Pepper stated she receives about TEN Court Appointed cases a week.  Folks this is 520 cases a year on a cash business. I.R.S. ARE YOU LISTENING?  Pepper would then assign homework, Christian based, for Salzman to complete before the next meeting.  This again is a violation of Salzman’s Constitutional Rights.  When Salzman had enough of this under the table dealing and refused to attend any further classes with Pepper the Family Court Judge found Salzman in Contempt of Court and took Salzman's Children away from her.  Judge Whitefield has ordered all Family Court Judges to recuse themselves from any case involving Salzman since this story broke on KRQE CH 13.  

We at THE EYE wonder how this story will end. We can see Salzman suing everyone involved, except you can't sue a Judge.  The Family Court has cut all ties with Pepper since the story broke.  We at THE EYE wonder how many more Peppers involved or will be involved in this cottage industry.  The Attorney General and The I.R.S. should investigate this, but we all know that will never happen, all these people are somebody and we are nobody.  We at THE EYE suggest that before you get involved in this cottage industry, no matter how much you dislike the other person, husband or wife, work out an agreement between the two of you and take it to a Judge to sign. Or you can go bankrupt and your children will suffer along with you.  We at THE EYE would like to hear your story.  Again thanks to KRQE CH 13 for their fearless reporting and to the young mother Holly Salzman.

Welcome to the Jungle

We humans are on top of the evolutionary chain but sometimes you have to ask yourself, “why?” Animals kill to eat, humans on the other hand, well you know the story. We humans are part of the animal kingdom whether we like to admit it or not.  In the animal kingdom there are predators and then there’s prey.  Predators, such as, lions look for the weak or the prey that’s not paying attention, so they can attack.  In the human race there are predators/criminals that prey on us.  The predators/criminals look for the weak or the person that is not paying attention.  How many times have you seen a women leave her purse in a shopping cart while she is looking at something on a shelf?  How many people leave their cars unlocked or lock them with computers or other valuables in sight?  How many people warm their cars up on a cold morning and go back inside leaving the car running, only to return to find it gone?  Humans can defend against these predators/criminals just by thinking and being aware that these things can happen.  

Albuquerque is a jungle for predators/criminals that feed on us.  All you have to do is watch the local news and day after day crime after crime, these predators/criminals are winning.  KRQE CH13 reported I-25 and Menaul, two vehicles block in a third vehicle and steal a women's purse.  KOB CH 4 reported women being attacked while sitting in their vehicles at shopping centers: one in the far northeast heights and the second on the west side (robbed at gun point for their purses).  Animals flee or fight when they sense danger.  Humans also have a sixth sense its called freeze, flee or fight.  WHEN YOU FEEL SOMETHING IS WRONG, IT IS!!!  TRUST YOURSELF AND FLEE IF YOU CAN.   

The predators/criminals in Albuquerque all seem to be carrying guns; KOAT CH7 reported that according to F.B.I. Statistics violent crime is up 15% in Albuquerque while it has dropped nationwide.  May we offer our thanks to Mayor Berry and Chief Eden for doing a fine job (N0T EVEN CLOSE )?  We at THE EYE believe the prey must protect themselves, law enforcement can't, by  the time the police arrive all they can do is pick up the pieces.  Trust your senses, don’t freeze, and flee if you can but if you have to, fight; the only thing that will stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.  New Mexico has a gun carry conceal law, it requires you to get trained by a licensed firearms instructor and pass a background check.  Most gun dealers offer this training or can advise you where to go for training.  If you do not want a carry conceal license there is another option, any citizen can carry a loaded firearm in their vehicle as long as they follow certain laws, some examples are as follows: never in the presence of alcohol, never around schools, and not with a criminal record that would prevent you from owning a firearm.  Only criminals can do that! 

Your vehicle is considered an extension of your home.  You can also strap it on your side as long as it is not concealed, without a conceal carry license.  This method will make a lot of people nervous as well as interaction with law enforcement so just be aware of those issues.  Certain laws apply and you have to know them.  We at THE EYE strongly recommend that no one carry a firearm unless you are trained to do so and that firearm is known to you, just as if it were an extension of your body.  Firearms are dangerous and not for everyone, especially people who are not responsible enough to own one.  Predators/criminals are also extremely dangerous, be cautious, be aware of your surroundings and listen to your sixth sense.  Are you going to be the prey?  Only you can answer that question.  Welcome to the jungle Albuquerque, a gift from yours truly Mayor Berry and Chief Eden.

There were two recent stories reported by KRQE CH13 that caught our Eye. The first story is concerning a thug by the name of Anthony Chavez who is intelligent enough to commit violent crimes but is mentally incompetent to be held accountable for his action. This is a complete conflict. Either your incompetent or your competent and you’re committing crimes. The second story is about Chelwood Elementary School and Its playground that has been taken over by prairie dogs. APS is complaining about the cost; claiming it will cost up to twenty thousand dollars to move the prairie dogs. This is a serious health issue and a danger to our kids. At the same time APS has blown hundreds of thousands of dollars on the last two incompetent superintendents.

The first story was about Anthony Chavez and his get-out-of-jail-free-card. In an interview with District Attorney Brandenburg; Mr. Chavez cannot be prosecuted because he has been judged mentally incompetent. This is despite Mr. Chavez being arrested time after time for breaking into homes, vehicles, pointing guns at victims and being caught on video stealing time after time. Mr. Chavez has to commit a violent crime before he can be confined to a mental health institution. Aggravated Assault with a deadly weapon is not violent enough. Mr. Chavez will have to shoot someone, kill someone, kidnap someone, or rape someone to be sentenced to a mental institution. Oh wait a minute rape won't work because the Rape Kit will never be processed. Does anyone want to volunteer to be Mr. Chavez next victim?


 Does anyone see the next lawsuit against APD; “Man Shot by APD was Mentally Incompetent.” Everyone knows he’s a danger and when the officers have to stop this thug, the tables will be turned and poor little Tony was going to get back on his meds and get his GED. He was even thinking about getting a job someday.


Come on folks we’re all nobody’s and the politicians could care less if we get hurt. We can hear it now; the politicians will get in front of the media and say our hearts and prayers go out to the family of nobody. We will take steps to make sure this will never happen again. We at the Eye think the morons that made this law should change it now, create the right legislation. Oh that's right politicians are too busy doing nothing.

The second story is about Chelwood Elementary School. It seems the school playground has been taken over by prairie dogs. This is a huge health hazard to the children, teachers and anyone who visits or works at the school. The children are walking in what the prairie dogs leave behind and are tracking it into the school, lunchrooms, buses and taking it home to their family. It is just a matter of time until one of the children gets bitten and suffers a severe health problem. Now we at the Eye know there is no rabies or plague in New Mexico; now is there? A.P.S. states it would cost up to twenty thousand dollars to move the prairie dogs because they are protected by City Ordinance (City Council and Mayor REALLY!!!) Oh, we get it; no politician’s children go to that school, just a bunch of nobody's. At least A.P.S. put a price tag on a child’s life; twenty thousand dollars. We at the Eye wonder how much the lawsuits will cost us taxpayers’. Really you bunch of morons, how much did you paid for the last two superintendents that failed our children and our community? IF YOU WANT TO CHANGE THINGS; you need to VOTE!

We at the Eye agree for the most part you are just replacing one politician with another. We must keep replacing them, no second term, unless they are taking care of us, our children and our community and conducting business in the best interest of the public. If they want to stay in office they will do what the citizens want. There is no amount of money that will compensate for a child's life. The problems have been exposed by Channel 13. When something bad happens the politicians must be held accountable and if necessary prosecuted.

The Honorable Chief, Bob V. Stover

It is truly with a heavy heart and sincere sorrow we must all say our goodbye's to Chief Bob V. Stover, who recently passed.

Our senior Eyes tell us Chief Stover was the BEST Chief of Police the Albuquerque Police Department has had in the past 35 years. We are told Chief Stover was a no nonsense type leader. Stover was not a politician's political appointee and pawn like many others such as Joe Polisar who's wife was related to Marty Chavez; or Gil Gallegos who was only appointed because of his political ties to the FOP; or Ray Schultz who was brought in by Chavez to rescue APD but instead ruined the Department; and recently the newest political appointee, the inepter and incompetent Gordon Eden who was appointed by the same type of incompetence, RJ Berry.

For many of us who have lived in Albuquerque all of our lives we have seen chief's come and go. Only one chief has ever stood out as a real Chief of Police; a real leader; that person was Bob V. Stover. One can only imagine in the ruins of APD being able to say Chief and real Leader in the same sentence; because right now that is impossible.

Our sincere condolences to the Stover and Garcia families. We know what a tragic loss you have suffered.

For the coppers who knew Chief Stover and to all the law enforcement family; you also have our condolences for you will soon hear the Alert Tone. PD to ALL UNITS; 10-3!

Double Standards

We here at the EYE have been watching The New Mexico Secretary of State Duran, saga play out.  First when accused of embezzling campaign funds she disappears for three weeks with pay (Maybe she was out playing the slots again). Then she gets a formal indictment and in a short time returns to work.
We are told by our Eyes that our State Representatives will decide what to do about her in the near future. We do not think not much will happen; after all, aren't there other State Officials being looked at for the same thing?  Are these same people who will be apart of the politicians who will decide Duran's fate?
Now let’s look at the Police. Here are just a few examples, there are many, many more. Orlando Comacho, fired from A.P.D. found not guilty in a Court of Law.  Doyle and Woolover both fired despite both State  and Federal Investigations found no crime and no charges brought. Sandy and Perez indicted; Sandy retired  and Perez was fired. Pablo Padilla, indicted and fired.  But let us not forget Chief Ray Schultz.  Our EYES tell us there was a complaint filed with The New Mexico Attorney General well over a year ago reference Taser Gate and nothing has happened.  What are they waiting; for the statute of limitations to run out?  We don't claim to know the guilt or innocence of anyone. We mainly point out the DOUBLE STANDARD.  The police are always accused of covering up for one another; the word “police” should be replaced with the word “politician.”
How many of you know the City Council Election is October 6, 2015 FOR DISTRICTS 2, 4, 6, and 8? Early voting is now. Want to really start changing things?  VOTE!

Sep 20, 2015


Recently our Eyes told us about the problem with rape kits not being processed at A.P.D. Seems there are 1,300 rape kits; a shocking number in itself. Out of the 1,300 kits 300 have been processed and 1000 still need be processed. Here is an even bigger problem; the statute of limitations is running and on some cases it has already run. Results: it’s too late to prosecute.
So now the excuses start, we don't have enough people to do the work, some of the victims decided they did not want to go forward and we don't have the money. Let’s take these excuses one by one.
Here is a clue for you brain trusts at A.P.D. Brass, HIRE SOME PEOPLE TO GET THE WORK DONE.
Let’s be generous, if there were 100 people that decided not to go forward that still leaves 900 victims being further victimized by A.P.D.
Last but not least the lack of funds. Many of you may not know that The City is self-insured, that means all the tens of millions of dollars in lawsuit settlements come right from your pocket and city services are cut to compensate for the loses.
Now we are sure at The Eye, if it was a politician’s family member or relative the rape kit would be processed before the end of the day. But who cares we are sure the victims are nobody's just like the rest of us. We all remember the brave young mother, Millisa Torrez, who watched as David Hernandez snatched her little girl off the street. Mrs. Torrez chased Hernandez in her vehicle crashing her vehicle into his to save her daughter.  What happens next, charges are dropped by the District Attorney Office and A.P.D. STARTED POINTING FINGERS AT ONE ANOTHER.  Here is the end result; Mrs. Hernandez and her daughter become victimized by the system.  The shame of it all is Mrs. Torrez and her daughters are nobody's right? What do you think would have happened if a politician’s daughter would have been snatched off the street? You see, the politicians want us to forget and go away; after all we are nobody's.
Here is a suggestion for the Brain Trusts in charge in the City.  Give up half your fat salary and get the job done. We know you have plenty of cash; we, know you Mayor just purchased a home in Red River.  How many of you nobody's can have two homes. How many of us don't even have one? WE MUST NEVER FORGET THE NOBODY’S! For it is the NOBODY’S that pay the bills for the City, County and the State.
We have said it here since the start of the Eye On Albuquerque; We the People, For the people and By the people.  Seem pretty simply…
