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.

Berry and his merry bunch of wealthy’s elitists have filled the moat around the castles up on the hill. The Four Hills community where your mayor lives has hired a “private police force” to patrol and defend the crème de la crème of Albuquerque.
Wouldn’t it be nice to have a police force that protects, serves and defends the public which is funded by our tax dollars? Well, here in Albuquerque, New Mexico, if you want police protection, you will need to hire a private police force like Berry and his merry bunch of elitists have done for the past nine years. We understand money is not an issue for the mayor and his cohorts but for the rest of us poor slobs; we rely on a public police force.
Instead of hiring enough officers by using intelligent methods, Berry and his elitists have chosen to hire their own private police to serve at their every beckon call. Can we now expect to see the Mad Max type roaming the streets of Albuquerque? Do all of us need to start strapping a gun to our sides? Even the Bernalillo County District Attorney proclaimed today; Albuquerque is in crisis.
We must reiterate this again; if Marty Chavez was Mayor, heads would have rolled and a new police administration would have been brought in who can actually do the job they were hired to do. This Mayor needs to learn a lesson from Marty. And the lesson is simple; Take care of business!
Logic should dictate what the course of action should be taken. Berry needs to bring in a completely new and competent leadership to APD. A leadership who will do the job they are hired to do.
Mister Berry, as the leader of this community (and if you want to truly move forward with a political career) you will have to take strong bold measures. Right the wrongs that have occurred.
It is a complete slap in the face to the citizens of Albuquerque and an unforgiveable insult for the mayor to have a private police force while the rest of Albuquerque suffers. This is clearly hypocrisy and is disgusting.

While the public is staunchly warned about violent and dangerous gang members flooding into New Mexico, local police in Albuquerque take to hiding out. This includes everyone from the Chief of Police down to the patrol officer.
It is a commonly known fact criminals prefer low visibility of law enforcement. This allows them to commit crime freely without capture or accountability. According to KOB Channel 4 News (READ IT HERE), “Dangerous and violent gangs are rushing to call New Mexico home…” Here is proof, according to the story, “Our crime rate is 200 percent higher than comparatively sized cities…A lot of those crimes are perpetrated by people who are in gangs.” Why is this occurring? The story cites poor gang laws. Our take goes deeper to look at root causation.
Since APD has come under tight scrutiny, most officers have elected to take the low road and seek shelter from the venomous eyes of a public who are hurt with their police. If the officers are not out and about enforcing laws and are being stealth when they do get dispatched; they substantially reduce the possibility of coming under fire for any reason at all. We understand the officers’ skepticism but what we do not understand is the Chief of Police hiding.
The Chief is taking home a handsome salary of over $158,000.00 plus numerous benefits in exchange for services to the citizens of Albuquerque. Why has the Chief decided to coward and hide from the media on issues that are critical to the public? According to a KOB Channel 4 News story (READIT HERE), “After releasing the allegations in a YouTube video Monday – not in a news conference with media present, as is customary – then refusing to answer any questions from local media, Eden and the department came under fire for not practicing the transparency and openness they preach is necessary.” The YouTube video centers on allegations that two APD officers beat another person.
Our Eyes behind the badge have told us there were top level discussions with Eden and others and the decision to block the media was warranted. APD would start using a media campaign modeled after the FBI. The model calls for the use of YouTube, Tweeting and Facebook to “beat the media to the punch.” According to the story, “In this instance, Eden and APD are using their agreement with the DOJ to provide an extra shield of defense from having to comment on the case – perhaps rightfully so - as part of their agreement states that no member of APD may impede, impair, or hamper a DOJ investigation.” This statement was also disclosed, “"They are our partners, and one of the things they ask us to do is - it's their investigation, and they ask us to abide by their media policy. And we will abide by their media policy," Eden told KOB Tuesday.”
Where is the signed agreement where the DOJ demands the Police Chief to be silent to the public he is supposed to be accountable to and serve?
This is all more rubbish and lies. Eden and Berry look like morons when they do one thing then they are forced to back-peddle and do another. Choose a lie and stick to it boys.
One of our Eyes sent us this picture of Eden talking about transparency. Anyone notice how he turns, looks down and away? Our Eye tells us this is a sign of untruthfulness.
You be the judge.
