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.

They can’t always get what they want.


Hello,

This is an excellent and genuine comment, and we appreciate that. It is free of agenda, and lays it out pretty well. It brings up points that people want to discuss, considering the history of malfeasant politics in our city, and it shows the frustration at hand. This is what we like here. We appreciate the bluntness. It is way better than the slimy, agenda driven, passive aggressive shit attacks we get here, from those that disagree because their ego, political plans, or cushy assignment prospects were dashed to pieces on the shores of life’s many disappointments.

Nobody here is on anyone’s nuts. Rest assured of that. This was all about denial of access, and cover to those responsible for the state of affairs of our police department, and city. It was about taking away that access, and exposing corruption. As much as things may appear one way or another, considering the perception and vantage point. One thing is for sure... the dynamics will be changing, because promises were made to clean this up, and make things right. This is our objective too. The Eye is organic and operates as so. It is beholden to nobody.

The problem in our city is people who think they are more important and worth more than you, us, and everyone else around them. These absolute vermin have destroyed the city with this mentality and their criminal actions. Those who stood by, and watched are guilty, and those who “got theirs, and took off to avoid the heat, and accountability when the DOJ arrived are just as guilty too.

(NOTICE: STILL NOTHING FROM BALDERAS ON THE SCHULTZ TASER INVESTIGATION. WE BET HE WILL LET THE STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS RUN OUT ON THAT JUST LIKE THE BRACHLE CASE. MORE EXCUSES WHILE HE WEARS OUT THE LOW HANGING FRUIT)

The secondary problem, are the pests who want to hear themselves talk with their bloviated calling of the shots, and predictions as they say. They have predicted nothing, and they too are cowards, as they run their mouths from well insulated positions, or already have locked down high dollar pensions. You are also going to see the false cheerleaders, and blow jobs coming out of the woodwork too. We will be doing our best to preempt all of this or call it out for what it is, and outline the motive.

Going back to Berry’s election, we know for a fact that during his campaign he told many that if elected, he would toss Ray Schultz in the shitter. That is a fact, but something happened. That “something” is always the gutless, parasitic cretins who think they are power brokers, sitting behind the scenes cutting deals, or calling in favors for political support, or other issues that may be needed down the line to get what they want, or support their agenda. These are the people we are observing now. In New Mexico, this picture is large, but when it involves criminal activity it is racketeering. It is the reason why Brachle was not indicted for shooting a fellow officer. It is the reason why the Albuquerque Journal supported Dan Lewis and Brian Colon at the same time. It is the reason why they then changed their tune, and supported Tim Keller, when the other two were called out on certain issues, and it was evident Keller was going to take it. It is the reason why Ray Schultz has not been indicted. It is the reason why Nate Korn of Kaufman’s West Army Navy gave campaign donations to a candidate Lewis, when his wife is a political appointee of Republican Governor Martinez, and he himself supported Martinez and Berry, while being Ray Schultz’s main cheerleader, and dirt doer at the New Mexico Law Enforcement Academy Board while he was there. It is the reason why Darren White, who is a shameless Susana Martinez water carrier gave a large sum of money to a Lewis in the mayoral election. It is the reason why there was a campaign of disparity in treatment of officers during the Scheme Schultz himself devised to keep the DOJ out of our city while painting people stains on the badge when these people are the biggest shit stains on humanity. It is the reason why criminal officers were covered for, and allowed to retire, while others had cases fabricated on them out of retaliation, animosity or to defraud the DOJ, for doing their jobs, or trying to raise a child. Albuquerque has been one big fucking racket for way too long, and sometimes fucking up co-conspirators best laid plans is the path to reconstruction. The police department suffered from all of it, and now you and your family are suffering from the fallout of officers who shut down, to avoid being victimized by a malfeasant, malevolent, self serving administration, out to cover up their corruption on the backs of any target of opportunity; hence our out of control crime rate, that correlated directly to illegal and unethical actions taken out on the police department out of desperation by former Police Employee Ray Schultz. (We will not call that bag of puss a Chief any longer.)

The people that you do not know about, who lurk about like cowards, torpedoing lives, and destroying the very thread of everyday life in our city, for their own advancement, do so out of greed, power, and sex. This is the problem. One of them knew all too well how serious this was when he got on an airplane, and left the city the day after his criminal administration was toppled, and he had no more cover. That fat red faced drunken bitch is now in Indiana. Indiana! How funny is that? How the fuck do you end up in Indiana from Albuquerque? You pack your bags and run like the bitch that you are in the middle of the night to follow your wife who is the only one left employable in the family. That is how.

You will hear the same people bring up the Eye and Berry from Berry’s first election win. They were the same people that contributed thousands to him, BUT they were the same hypocritical spineless cowards who remained silent for eight years as we tore this administration a new ass weekly, with every bit of intel we could muster, without giving up our sources. They were the same people who “got theirs” then got the fuck out, and left the mess for everyone beneath them. How many people would still be here if certain bits of information had not been released. Three evolutions of upper command staff turnover happened under Berry.

Everything is here in the archives. We were lied to, and we dealt with it with viciousness, and ferocity that you do not see in many other cities coming from a blog. This blog was started under the Marty regime. We all know what went down during those days. Berry knew it, and although you may think he got away with something, that pathetic clown will probably run away too. Just compare his photos from eight years ago to one taken today. He looks like a bag of ass, and all of his hair fell out. Bad things people do have a way of catching up with them. The stress, and lack of a reputation will take a toll on that boy forever. We do not envy him.

So, knowing that the stakes are very high here, there is not much room to be dishonorable, or revoke campaign promises. With that said, we do know how hard things are going to be, and it’s only been a week.

Things are going to be difficult, because one of the groups we discussed above will come into play. There is major assburn over Garcia being kept on as deputy chief, and the bringing back of retired APD commander Harold Medina. As a side note... Medina couldn’t even raised his right hand for his swearing in ceremony properly. What cop, let alone someone who was promoted to the level of commander does not know that you place your left hand on the Bible, while raising your right hand to be sworn in? Harold Medina does not... That’s who! How embarrassing is that?

The look on Keller’s face as Medina raises the wrong hand and ignores the Bible is priceless?

Things are also going to be hard, because there is not many. The pool of good leadership material is thin. You will see where the rubber meets the road, and who is in it to win it in time, because word is that a few are angry they weren’t promoted. We will see who sticks around to fix things, and who takes their ball and goes home. Honestly, we don’t want to see spoiled self centered brats kept on. A handful of dedicated loyal individuals can do the jobs of dozens if they know they are backed, and there is mutual trust between the officers, the citizens, and the command staff. As we see it, it is the command staff’s obligation and responsibility to regain the trust of both the officers and citizens. If you want to call yourself a police executive, you better understand what comes with that. Schultz, Eden, Huntsman, and the rest of the previous filth had no concept of that.
Although there are things we disagree with going on, we will deal with it, but we will not throw grenades at it, without a baseline to go on, because there are good officers depending on things to change drastically for them in a good way. If that does not happen... If officers get shit on we will address it. The same goes for all city employees and our citizens.

The fact of the matter is that Keller’s apologizing for complete assholes, who shot people with ashtrays, lotion bottles, cell phones, spoons, or who were just plain unarmed, for crimes ranging from nothing, to petty misdemeanors is called owning it. The fact that people were shot when they did not have to be, or as they were being talked down, and about to comply, like Boyd and Ellis and having to listen to jackasses on police audio recordings exclaim “ oh fuck fuck was that me?” when their gun goes off, then observe a whole entire city attorney’s office, and police department justify a negligent discharge of a firearm after a fathers kid is killed... THAT is the problem here. You can not deny that there were several unjustified shootings in our city that denies belief. How do you justify shooting someone standing on their own front porch from across the street, in the back, when they have a spoon in their hand, and the officer knows it is a spoon, then promoting them. How do you justify skipping over officers for promotion, just because you do not like them, when they have stellar records or better yet railroading them off the job to distract from upper command staff public corruption? How does a shoot get justified where an officer knows an object in the hand was a spoon, but the excuse was that the officer felt he may go inside, and get a gun? It does not work that way. That is not an imminent threat, but this was one of many unarmed shootings this officer had, and another one of the many ridiculous excuses that people are sick and tired of hearing. How does a mental patient get killed in his own back yard by the police when he is unarmed just because an officer bit off more that he could chew physically, and precipitated the situation? How does an officer shoot an unarmed suspect in the back, stand over him and shoot him again and lie about there being a gun in his hand and not get indicted for murder? There are use of force cases that need apologizing for, and actual prosecution of, and there are use of force cases that look like absolute shit, but are justified. People understand this, but the previous administration under Ray Schultz had blurred the line so badly that nobody, even the officers trust anyone, and that is no good. It is the reason why we are here. Some apologizing needs to be done on both sides, and the administration carries most of the weight on that. The competent officers know they didn’t fuck up. They know who the fuck ups are, and they don’t want to be around them either. If officers are cringing at some of these things, something is wrong.

You will never hear a good cop complain about the field, fighting criminals, dealing with drunks, ignorance, or anything related to police work out there in the trenches. The constant enemy of the good street cop is the self important, micro managing attention whore of a police executive who uses them for a stepping stool. That is going to stop. The failed leadership that betrays the rank and file out there every day, doing what they themselves can’t do, don’t want to do, or are too good to do will always be held accountable by us, because that is what destroyed our city.

The citizens have been duped by New Mexico politicians for decades. This has been done on the backs of employees, officers, other politicians, and the citizens themselves. As the song goes, you can’t always get what you want, and this is true here. Now THEY can’t always get what they want, because even though there are still unavoidable tentacles of influence throughout the place, there are also more Eyes. After all of this, and everything that happened, betraying the good for selfishness will never be lived down, if it is the result of intentional malfeasance. There will be stumbling and growing pains, but mark these words, there will be accountability. That is pretty much the climate we are in, and everyone knows this because of what happened, so mimicking a Berry regime is not likely.

Another reason we went this route was because the Mayor had a background in accountability based government. He conducted audits and knows what Berry and Schultz did and what they are. He was also none of the above when it came to the politically connected who are responsible for what happened here through their direct actions, or affiliations. We also decided this because he had a background in government an had the best plans for action.

You know what we do. We do not betray, nor do we stab backs. We react to deception. We only ask that the right thing is done. We ask that the wrongs be righted. Nobody is a peasant. Every wrong needs to be addressed. We ask that an honest attempt be made at all of this. This is all that can be expected. We are a week into this now. Let’s see what happens. All does not happen in a week. This will be a process. We will be watching, and so will our Eyes.

Feelings will get hurt. We can almost promise that, because we know who the posers are, plus you can’t appease everyone. We know who sat back, while the injustices were taking place. We know who reserved endorsement, until weeks before the runoff. We know those same frauds are standing in the crowd behind the Mayor, like they have been there all along, and we have their names, and facts to back it up. Those people are the ones who’s feet will be held to the fire when they decide to take the political, or low road approach to doing the right thing. We are also tired of union officials walking around like they are a boss, or bragging that they have the mayor’s ear. You know who you are. Get out your insulated booties mister “bro” because your shit is no longer going to be tolerated either. Joey boy learned it the hard way and you can too. If we smell any selfish agenda we will put it out there.

All in all, what we are saying is give it some time, but keep a close eye on everything. It is all we can do right now as things start to settle in, and get rolling. Taking care of Lou Golson, making the commanders give up the incentive pay, and filing an LEA90 against former Lt. Brachle’s certification were outstanding first moves. We will continue to keep eyes on the appointments, along with circumstances as they unfold. We want to see things made good, and safe for all of our citizens, officers and firemen.

We do not know how we will feel tomorrow, let alone 4 years but we will see, and so will those who choose the wrong choices.

No one person is Albuquerque’s savior. It is up to all of us.

Thank you for reading us, and we hope you and your families have a safe and happy holiday season!

One Punt Over the Line Sweet Jesus...

Today our eyes tell us that Major Jessica Tyler has been punted by the administration. Well... ha ha ha... Just ha ha ha...
We can’t say that wasn’t a long time coming.

GHOSTS OF ALBUQUERQUE PAST


Through out the years of the most corrupted administration ever, the Schultz administration, there have been many tales of nature at play, putting incompetent people in places for the appearance of something politically fitting, promotions based on cronyism, open marriages, sex outside on lawn furniture, howling so loud that people called the police, because they thought it was an injured animal, favoritism in the promotion process, where less senior, and incompetent individuals were promoted over more qualified candidates, and all around poor behavior that would disqualify a candidate from being a police officer if they had these things in their background.

At this point in time, any prospect of this administration should be screened almost as if obtaining a Q clearance with the DOD. We feel this is not happening, and it may be either out of a lack of people wanting the positions, lack of education, or knowledge on the part of the new administration about the past of these candidates, or worst case scenario... political favors stemming from the input of those from the past administration or those close to them; the very same people responsible for destroying the place.

We feel that two positions here were filled with disastrous, candidates. Deputy Eric Garcia should be shown the door after he assists the transition team. We do understand that the transition team does need someone who has the proprietary knowledge needed to show the new people around, but that is it. This is because the Chief and Assistant Chief ran out the door before they came, leaving nobody. Like the Saddam Hussein theory, no head is worse than a bad one because a vacuum would collapse the place totally. We understand that. You can find many reasons for our above opinion within the confines of this blog.

Bringing Harold Medina back was another decision that needs to be looked at, along for the reasons it was done. The reasons we will leave for the near future, but this decision is not good either, because if Harold wanted to really fix the department, or contribute to keeping it from declining like it did, he would have stayed instead of running away in 2014, at the height of the heat the DOJ brought. And run away he did because he left without the usual place to land like most do when they retire, because he has only been the chief there for a few months. We wonder if he will bring his buddy Art over, and we wonder how many times he’s called his good buddy Ray to brief him.

Below is a great article describing why there needed to be a total house cleaning....

ABQ FREE PRESS COMMAND STAFF BACK STABBING CULTURE ARTICLE

There has been a culture of unfair promotions, and back stabbing within the police department. This has lead to a culture of a fearful and hostile work environment for years. We know it, and the evidence shows it. We all know about the culture of everything else that has taken place within the police department too. And we really know that promoting incompetent malfeasant and dishonorable impndivuduals, and protecting them led to all of this.

Creating an administration from the bottom up is disastrous for the person who will be running it, and will be stuck with political appointees of somebody else’s choosing. It is an even worse predicament for a police chief to have to work with people below him, who were not picked by him, or picked with input from him, because this creates an air that subordinates are protected. When this happens, you have the usual undermining of command, and or mutiny that will occur.

We want to see this administration succeed, and we want to see all of the wrongs righted. Right now is the best opportunity for this. Because of what is at stake, we will zealously pursue what is right. Bringing back problems is not what is right, especially when these problems are all connected to Ray Schultz, and the past administration. We all know how things work, and these actions grant access to people like Schultz and the past administration. All it takes is a phone call, and the efforts of a new administration are sabotaged. That is what these people do, and this needs to be understood.

When you look back into our archives, you can see why the Eye on Albuquerque was started. It was started because of the antics of the Marty Chavez administration and an out of control city and police department staff, lead by Ray Schultz and his boys. This is why there is an issue with bringing back Lawrence Rael as the Chief Operating Officer. This is very concerning, but we will observe and see.

Now we know a fourth deputy chief of police position is open, and it is highly probable that it will be a female. What female that it could be may be the straw that breaks the camel’s back.

You see, many of the well known females who made rank, and who the pattern shows could have a shot, would further plunge the city, and police department into the toilet. There is no way someone who lied on an IA investigation involving fraternization, lied on national television, involving DOJ issues, and use of force cases, and who ran away when the feds came should be considered. There is no way someone who was so incompetent that a position was created for them that the failed so miserably at that a lieutenant was sent to do it should be looked at. This same person who has so many moral skeletons in their closet that it is disgusting, should not even be allowed to have a law enforcement certification. This very same person promoted by Berry himself, and covered by Schultz should remain not employed by this administration. And there truly is no place for a commander who smacks their officers on the ass inside substations, or has sex outside in their back yards for the neighbors to see and hear. There definitely isn’t a place for someone who gets promoted when they had sex in a hot tub with a deputy chief years ago. Right? But after all this is Albuquerque we are talking about.

The place defies logic at times, and we all know it’s slim pickins, but there are choices.

Like the old saying goes... What doesn’t come out in the selection process, will come out here on the Eye on Albuquerque.

Geez... Albuquerque; what a garden of earthly delights.

Till the next time....
Cheers!

Meet your new prospective Lieutenant Governor candidate. New Mexico Political maneuvering at it’s finest.

We are getting word that former mayoral candidate Brian Colon may be running for Lieutenant Governor, now that candidate Padilla stepped down. Hmmm.... seems there is much political maneuvering going on to keep the connected in place. It seems a few can not get the message that many are tired of those who have destroyed the place, and the ones who are connected to those who are responsible for the destruction.

We here at the Eye have not forgotten what went down behind the scenes of the 2017 mayoral election, and who is connected to who.

Below is a photo of Brian Colon with Albuquerque Police Officer Dominique Perez who, was charged with murder in the foothills shooting of James Boyd, but never exonerated... As a matter of fact, it was a hung jury, and Perez was handed his job back without having to go through an arbitration that every single cop who was fired had to go through; some who weren’t even indicted, and only faced non dismissible accusations.


It seems the greatness around here just wants to stay to make it even greater. It seems that along with crying and complaining about being assigned administrative duties, our Eyes are telling us that Perez is now teaching at the Albuquerque Police academy. We wonder what he is teaching. Amazing isn’t it? Well.... that’s what we’d say if we haven’t been witness to one of the most corrupted public administrative situations in the United States of America.

Just what we need. More state and municipal contracts to Schultz’s boys over at the Robles Law Firm.

MORE THREATS AGAINST THE DISTRICT ATTORNEY?

Folks, the hits just keep coming.

Just the day after a pivotal election we are getting information from our Eyes that there is yet another coverup going on.

We all know those at the top within the APD brass are not foreign to retaliation and extortion type tactics, but this is getting silly.

With the retaliatory behavior towards former District Attorney Kari Brandenberg, after she announced she was going to charge APD officers for murder in the foothills shooting, and the recent surreptitious taping of the Federal Monitor James Ginger, what we are about to tell you is totally feasible.

Within the last few weeks there have been ongoing negotiations with the Bernalillo County District Attorney over a possible complaint against an APD Special Investigations Detective. We were advised that weeks ago that this APD detective may have uttered verbal threats of harm to DA Raul Torres over detectives not getting what they wanted from the DA’s office.... something in the lines of an ass beating.

Our Eyes are telling us that this detective is being covered for, because he is connected to Sullivan who runs SID. The word is that Sullivan, Eric Garcia and a few others are trying to squash this after DA Torres had called for a meeting with APD command staff after he was made aware of it.

The kicker here is that after weeks, an Internal Investigation has not been started on this yet because they are trying to sweep this.

It is apparent here that those within APD who have helped promote the disparaging treatment of officers will continue with their antics up until the bitter end.

Thank God we are only two weeks away from the New Mayor taking over.

Stopping by the Woods on a Snowy Evening, By Robert Frost; An Election Night Poem to Tuck Yourselves In to on This Good Night

Whose woods these are I think I know.   
His house is in the village though;   
He will not see me stopping here   
To watch his woods fill up with snow.   

My little horse must think it queer   
To stop without a farmhouse near   
Between the woods and frozen lake   
The darkest evening of the year.   

He gives his harness bells a shake   
To ask if there is some mistake.   
The only other sound’s the sweep   
Of easy wind and downy flake.   

The woods are lovely, dark and deep,   
But I have promises to keep,   
And miles to go before I sleep,   
And miles to go before I sleep.
And dirty motherfuckers to bury really deep.
