Daskalos Files: Target Kirby

Just as we thought we'd heard the last of Albuquerque's most famous developer/amateur race car driver/playboy, up pops a domestic violence allegation. Now the fallout from the infamous Daskalos DWI debacle continues.

If you will remember, Daskalos was sprung from the DWI paddy wagon by an off duty officer while awaiting transport to the west side jail. When the developer was found missing by on-duty officers, somehow the officer that removed Daskalos was contacted resulting in a return trip to the paddy wagon (ABQ Journal - Subscription). The officer in question turned out to be Officer Ben Kirby.

Kirby was ultimately fired for his role in Daskalos' little side trip. Now our Eyes tell us that Kirby is the target of a grand jury investigation; specifically containing allegations of conspiracy and tampering with public records.

The Daskalos arrest and subsequent joy ride with officer Kirby happened well over a year ago. Since that time, Daskalos has gotten a pass by a jury of his peers and our Eyes tell us that Kirby is out of state looking for a new life and employment.

Look, we're for prosecuting evildoers and criminals as much as the next Eye, but the move to impanel a grand jury over a year after the fact has us scratching our head and wondering what took DA Brandenburg so long. What is more interesting is the allegation of conspiracy.
con·spir·a·cy (kn-spîr-s)
n. pl. con·spir·a·cies
1. An agreement to perform together an illegal, wrongful, or subversive act.
2. A group of conspirators.
3. Law An agreement between two or more persons to commit a crime or accomplish a legal purpose through illegal action.
4. A joining or acting together, as if by sinister design: a conspiracy of wind and tide that devastated coastal areas.
Look, we're not an attorney but we're pretty sure that no matter how you define conspiracy, there's a basic requirement that someone else be involved. Originally, Chief Schultz played this as if Kirby and Daskalos were friends and that officer Kirby acted alone (ABQ Journal - Subscription). Now we're hearing talk of conspiracy which leads to the obvious question... who are the conspirators?

This wouldn't be the first time that we've heard of special treatment for "special" people. Back in April we told you the story of retired AFD Captain Ralph Ortega. Ortega, the brother of AFD Chief Robert Ortega was allegedly given preferential treatment when he was personally escorted to the west side jail by an on-duty DWI officer despite the availability of a transport from the Prisoner Transport Center (read about it here). According to our Eyes the order to provide the AFD Chief's brother came from Chief Schultz and former public safety czar Nick Bakas. Could someone other than Kirby and Daskalos be involved here?

We don't know whether or not the grand jury will hand down an indictment and we certainly can't predict the contents of an indictment that doesn't yet exist. However, we can't wait to find out who the alleged conspiracy includes. Looks like there may be even more entries in the Daskalos Files.

Chief Ortega also gave special treatment to his nephew (Alberto),(Adell)his niece, and his all too famous nephew (Damion Jenkins) who has since resigned because the Chief just couldn't hide him anymore. Bakas gave exception to all the Chief Ortegas family until he could not anymore. Look up Bakas in the Metro court web base case management. There is a case around 09/06 that deals with conspiracy. The public should know that the people on high passing judgement on others are shitbags. They fire others while others do what ever they want as long as their is a familial relationship or possible financial contribution down the road you get a pass.

Barbarossa said...

Nothing will come of it, if Kirby had dirt on anyone else he would have used it in the termination process to get a pass. On the other hand, if there are others involved and they let him swing from the gallows this way they ought to all be horsewhipped on civic plaza at high noon.

Anonymous said...

Kirby won't rat on fellow Greek Nick Bakas. They are not like that, they stick togeather.

Bakas is all over the Daskolos case. He is involved like he has been in every other case.

He skated on the APD evidence case. He said Gallegos was the best APD Chief ever and covered for Gallegos, knowing full well Gallegos was dirty!!! He even went after his own officers who exposed Gallegos to try to convice the media. (Bakas is a shitbag).

Patricia Madrid would not let her investigators interview Bakas in the APD evidence case and they had enough to build a case against several high ranking APD Officers. However, it was a political year and she did not want the heat, so the case was dropped, although they stated some officers were up to illegal activity......

The mayor moved him to the airport to hide him and keep him(Bakas) out of trouble, but Bakas finds trouble everywhere, because he uses his position for personal gain!!!! Everyone knows that!! He has done it since he was a patrolman for APD.

He helped the Fire Capt and he helped Daskolos, who lends Bakas political support in the form of cash donations from the Greek community to get the high paying jobs from the mayor.

Bakas would constantly call high ranking APD Officers to help his friends with their personal issues, and cases while he was the Public Safety Chief.

The guy is dirty!

There is no more sure sign that the public has lost control over power and resources that are fundamentally theirs, than the fact that public officials can not be required to answer questions about their use of public power and resources.

We entrusted control over our power and resources to others, who have betrayed that trust.

They will not give back the control of almost unlimited power and resources.

If control is ever returned to the public, it will be because the public takes it back - in an uprising; torches and pitchforks at city hall.

Unless someone has a better idea.

Anonymous said...

Bakas has helped more than just Daskalos and the Fire Chief's family. He was the person who took charge to put the cabosh on Mayor Marty's domestic violence rumors. He's a pro, kind of like Michael Clayton, but without the conscience.

Anonymous said...

Don't forget the DCOP who Bakas helped out by destroying his IA investigation(rape.) And the other DCOP{one who found it necessary to put a gun to a persons head.

Anonymous said...

They even have a tape of that victim saying that the DCOP held a gun to her head during an argument in his office after hours, but Schultz did nothing to the DC except give him a job because no one else would hire him. In fact, none of the three pasted DCOP's that Gallegos appointed could get jobs after they retired, so Schultz gave them all jobs. One even went so low as to become a CSA. That's how bad their reputations are in the public sector. Two wanted to teach at Sandia, but Sandia would have nothing to do with them. So their all back at APD. hahahahaha what a laugh. Bakas also protected all of them and held all their IA cases back waiting until they retired. Then they just went away. It does not work like that for officers. They continue with the case even after the officer retired.

Schultz would not let his buddies swing for their crimes, only his officers pay the price.

Seems as though there is a lot of real shitty laundry piling up at City Hall. Guaranteed, is that this Mayor, Nick Bakas, Bruce Perlman and Ray Schultz are up to their eyeballs in it. Everyone in the land of Oz seems to know what's going on except the newspaper and the news channels. Maybe because they're ordered not to run these stories as the public can never know about the rapes, the thievery, the conspiracies, the cover ups, the domestic violence, the whoring around which promps certain spouses to committ suicide and God only knows what else. Oh, and these are the things that are happening within and by members of this upstanding administration.

Anonymous said...

So WHO was it that text Officer Kirby to go get Daskalos out of the DUI unit? We all know the answer to that.
And where is officer Maes in all this with this rape allegation hanging over him? If I were him I'd take everybody down, unless they pay him off and somehow get this dismissed to shut him up.

Actually it appears to me that the Chief is the only one who IS cleaning things up. He fired Daskalos, he initiated the criminal investigation against Maes, he fired Camacho, he fired Wilcox, etc... Hopefully, he will also hold those of you who are wasting your time on this web page instead of working "accountable". You want a raise? You need to prove that you are worth it first, and so far you are not there.

A LT on APD had a great IA case against DC's E.S and F.J, but Chief Schultz just held the case until they all retired. The Lt even had a statement taken by in deposition where FJ admited he and ES had violated policy!!!! I read it.

IA had the case, as well as an I number, but the case was never completed, although FJ stated they had violated policy. The DC's would have receiced about 30 days off each just for that violation.

Chief Schultz promoted that LT to Capt even though that LT told him he was retiring in three months. Nobody knew why he was promoted, but it was so the Lt would keep his mouth shut on the ES and FJ case. Guess what, That Newly promoted VA Capt Gomez, retired three months later, as he said. It really helped his cash out.

Now think,,, if you were the APD Chief, would you promote a LT who said he was retiring in three months even if he was promoted to capt!!!!!


The IA case on the two DC's just vanished! There is an I number though. I would like to see what they did to make it go away!

It's do as I say and not as I do on this dept!!!!!!!!!

Listen to this APD. The fire department is now adding 4 Assistant Chief positions at $103,000 a pop, with 3 more on the way shortly. In addition to that, the three Deputy Chiefs will go from $105,000 per year to $112,000. That's alot of cash that can be spent on APD or AFD raises. This money would sure come in handy now during contract negotiations. My understanding is that AFD is much more top heavy than APD as it is. Can anyone verify this? I also understand that the fire chief's brother (Ralph)now works for the City in the environmental health department. What a waste of money,all the way around, if this happens to be true. I guess we know which Chief has the real stroke around here. Hey City Council, APD could sure use you now!!!!

fire chief carlos dominguez mentioned above had numerous cocaine related mishaps, in those days one of his LTs was sent for Coke re-hab 3 times (on your tax dollars expense) b4 they fired him!!! No way APD can ever reach the level of scumbags of AFD -- even if they tried the urine testing alone would curtail it.

They are a reflection of the management -- think back just 5 or 10 years, the department was professionial and not a bunch of plant eaters who have to or are forced to hide from police work out of fear. AFD, to their credit, has always been the same... but their job is vastly different. If they fought fires the way cops fight crime they'd have to drive around the city all night looking for smoke. They can be reactive, cops are meant to be proactive, but strong proactive measures get you into trouble because they lead to explaining crime fighting to guys who havent done it in years if ever..... trust me, that will give you an ulcer.

Ooh I got it now. He did nothing other than made a bad decision. APD fires people for bad decisions now? Does officer Floyd still have his job? Should used the break instead of gas. Does officer Chavez still have his job? Should have at least acted some what concerned and dialed 911 himself and showed some empathy for Ms. Regensburg, after all he did advertise he was an officer with his take home car in the driveway, but he "was offduty".

Anonymous said...

here here! its not who u know its who u got dirt on!

Anonymous said...

Interestingly enough you bring up two great examples of the paradigm known as policing. With Floyd you have an officer wanting to do the right thing, hustling to get to a domestic violence call and help somebody. Unfortunately things go really bad and a citizen is indiscriminately killed by sheer accident (do you really think there was any malice on Floyd's part, do you really think he's not living with that incident every day?). Then with Chavez, he doesn't/can't do anything. Nobody knows but him why nothing occurred but the results appear the same...somebody dies.

Perhaps the police should just sit in their miserable cars at their substations and only go out when called upon like firefighters do. Would that make you feel better? Is that what people expect of the police?

Wake up to the fact that cops make life and death decisions every day and sometimes a wrong decision is made. Does that suck, yes

Anonymous said...

So was HE speeding or not? Law states you can only go over the posted speed limit by 10 mph. Then again APD will tell you they have there own policy still doensn't supercede state law. What was the outcome of the call he was responding to? Also the PIO on the case (Hoffman) stated to the media that speed was not a factor. How does a 2,000 pound car jump a curb and a 18 inch wall go through a yard and kill someone if speed is not a factor? To the second point because the officer chose to be lazy, non careing, "I'm offduty", he should get a pass at his inaction? What would the same officer say if city payroll acted the same way with his paycheck? To the refrence you made about firefighter. Their response times to calls puts APD's to shame so maybe you are on to something there.

Anonymous said...

Above poster, don't you realize: even heros have opinions, stresses, and viewpoints and having such does not make them any less of a hero. This blog is an opportunity for all people (not only officers and fire-fighters) to VENT!! Real life heros especially need to VENT to keep a healthy perspective in life, considering their jobs, what they see day in and day out. VENTING is a healthy way to blow off steam and to get stuff off your chest! That doesn't make them any less of a hero! They will still come to rescue you if your house is burning, if you or your family need medical attention or gets into an accident, or if you are a victim of crime. It would sure be a sad state of affairs if they didn't have some place to come and blow off steam. They are heros, always will be, even if you can't see that. So don't deprive your daycare kids the opportunity to meet these brave men and women who risk life and limb day in and day out to help us. I'm not a sworn officer or a firefighter, just a civilian city worker who is very glad that these people are out there everyday helping us when we need it.
