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. Compliments of one of our Eyes

Fisher - Off the Hook

We told you right before Christmas that the Eyes had it that Officer Matt Fisher was being implicated as the co-conspirator in the Jason Daskalos DWI duck-out from APD custody (read it here). Today our Eyes found out that Officer Fisher is off the hook so to speak.

Apparently, there are no plans to indict Officer Fisher at this time. Of course there were no plans to indict former Officer Ben Kirby until he had the temerity to sue to get his job back.

Speaking of Kirby... We're wondering exactly where this development leaves the DA's case against the former officer. We're not a lawyer but don't you need more than one person for a conspiracy? You'll remember that our Eyes had it that the Kirby grand jury came to a screeching halt when a juror decided to ask exactly who the other conspirators were (read it here).

We'd think at this point the DA is going to have a tough time of getting around this particular elephant in the room. Either they're going to have to start naming people involved in the conspiracy or settle for indicting a ham sandwich - 'cause they don't seem to be able to get Kirby without it.

ham sandwich? How 'bout a big Kabasa? ... and where they can stick it.

I just read an article in the paper that Kirby has been indicted again, becuse Daskalos now has been charged with evading arrest. And channel-4 is reporting that Ben is a former officer. I just saw him recently in uniform. WHAT THE HEY?

This quagmire reminds me of a nursery rhyme. "Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall...all the KINGS horses (asses) & all the KINGS men...

Where is Nick Now??? And I noticed KING Marty is proposing stiffer penalites for auto theft to the legislature. That's a no-brainer, a car is an extension of your home. I guess our "whines" produced some effect, he must have realized that his "my way or the highway" tactics aren't going to work anymore. Citizens want him to work on crime, not just the ones that work it.

Kari is grabbing on this one, "It's just the right thing to do, the ethical, professional thing to do". Kind of reminds me of a beauty pageant.

Kari, stay in that Neanderthal position & keep that cute little nose brown.

It won't take long for that charge againt Zorba the Geek to disappear, I'm sure!
Brandenberg will prove what a LAMBE she is, for real
and once again Gorance will spring Daskalos free. Let's see which officers stupid Schultz will be apologizing for this time!

Why is Kirby charged with a felony and Daskalos (the guy who escaped) only charged with a misdemeanor? Gorance is going to tear apart the DA's office (again). Will Kari have the courage to try this case herself?

This is what happens when public officials don't do what is right. This is a perfect case of spin. This case will disappear, mainly because we have no investigative reporters in Albuquerque since Horner left town.

By the way, nice to see the Daskalos family is getting taxpayer funded breaks for their investment on Gibson. They may be a nice family, but they need to make their kid be an adult and take responsibility for what he has done. Money can get you out of trouble, but taking responsibility for your actions sits better with the public.

"Kirby charged with a felony...

You are so on the money! Jason's charges will go away & Kirby will take the rap for it all, the fall guy. After all they the (Mayor, APD Chief, DA ...) needed a conspiracy theory!!

The coruption seems to be never ending. The whole political system is rotten with it.

Wow, I always drew the line in protecting cops that commit criminal acts friends or not. If I was Matt I would be asking I wonder who went to bat for me. I know it doesn't sit well with this blog but could it have been someone on the 5th floor ummmmmm. Kirby is a cop who got a criminal out of jail I would call that escape and assisting in escape. Don't bore me with cops who commit criminal acts.

please know that Gorence is also a non ethical piece of crap and is very very very good friends with "Light in the Loafers" Larry Barker...Gorence protected a 3 time convicted pedophile rapist when he was the AUSA. NO LOYALTY TO ANYONE BUT HIMSELF.

"the coruption seems to be never ending...

You took the words right out of my mouth! That's exactly what's going to happen. Conspriacy proved, Jason off, Kirby felony conviction. Fisher off, because they know they're wrong & don't want another law suit. Paying one will be enough & they can quietly sweep it under the carpet.

These scum really think the public doesn't have a clue.

Plain and simple. For those who support this mayor( Directors) are the ones who are holding high paying jobs with the city and are afraid to lose those jobs as very few could make it in the real world, or will have to settle for $24,000 a year jobs selling shoes or cell phones for Altell. Your 'Gravy train' is coming to an end, so start sucking someone else now and be the bitch you are known for best. Men? I think not. Just little weasel whores with no backbones or scruples. Just what principles did your parents teach you anyway? Do you actually have wives that respect you?

Anonymous said...

Comment above: right on about Marty's minions( twats).
They don't respect themselves, let alone their wives. If they follow Marty's lead, they don't have the respect of their employees, their peers, or friends. As for wives; most have already left them or are about to. Men? Nothing but sneaky little vermin.

I did have my facts right, I am talking about the DASKALOS Family doing something about their black sheep, instead of helping him get of the hook. Who do you think is paying for Gorence to represent him? They need to make JASON accept his role in this matter and stop bailing him out.

Considering that a zillionth of one percent of the voters in alb read this blog (no offense intended), I would have to argue the public really doesn't have a clue.

How else would you explain that fact that it never ends?

It wasn't too long ago Gorence did indeed protect that pedophile that raped two 10 year old boys in this fair city. He along the the great BCSO and DEA were almost willing to lay down their lives for this guy who admitted to raping over 200children. By the way..JOE BOWDICH WAS IN CHARGE AT THAT TIME AND KNEW THEY WERE PROTECTING HIM AND DID NOT TELL HIS OWN DETECTIVES WHO WERE WORKING NIGHT AND DAY TO FIND THIS RAPIST. In the end..they lost to spite all their efforts to CONCEAL this guy's identity. Big time Larry Barker Mr. Investigative reporter.."Get to the truth Barker" dropped the story like a hot potato when his buddy Gorence told him too. Wonder what they SEE when they all look in the mirror? Liar? Unethical? Slime? Sleazy? my guess is "all the above". If Daskolos wanted a spineless lawyer, he got one. He sold the soul of two innocent boys to try and protect Michael Robinson. Yeah,
Gorence, you know who I'm talking about. You can add Marcantiel and Thomas both BCSO to that list as well.

Anonymous said...

Is this that informant guy or FBI guy they were protecting? Anyway, you are right about Gorence....he's a slime ball the type that lawyer jokes are made about. I wish that Ofc. Otzenberg. had decked him in the courtroom that day. I don't know how he kept his cool, but like I said, he's a gentleman and Gorence is NOT...

Anonymous said...

The pedophile was a DEA informant, one of whom Gorence, Bowdick, McWethy,Liz Martinez AUSA, Greg Marcantel(BCSO), Matt Thomas(Region 1..which is really scary he's over there) and Roy Dennis (BCSO)were protecting. They tried to keep him from being arrested but did not succeed. Gorence was big mouthing as usual that he was never under any charges by DEA. Why then is he NOW sitting in a federal prison doing 36 years on drug charges??? SUPPOSEDLY after that, he'll come to NM and do life. Unless of course the Feds have seen fit to "move" him or make him disappear...They are all unethical and have NO business wearing a badge..not even a security badge.

Anonymous said...

Wow! What a bunch of A-holes they are. I knew about the guy being an informant, but the rest.....is really, really scary. Law enforcement officers covering up for a dirt bag.

Well, I guess protecting pedophiles is what cops are doing these days. WHen pedophiles can go into any library (in violation of probation/parole which precludes them from being around children) and APD when called to the scene says the pedophiles have civil rights to be in a library and on the computer, then...Houston we have a problem....
Are law enforcement officers afraid to violate these guys back into the system when they're in violation?

How would those same officers feel if it was their kids in the library when the pedophile is walking, stalking, skulking around......would that pedophile still have the same civil rights that the cops are so fervent about protecting?

Anonymous said...

On top of all that, none of those people mentioned were ever held accountable. The family of one boy sued the crap out of the feds and won an undisclosed amount..that does not take away the fact that those kids were lambs for the slaughter in the name of "THE WAR ON DRUGS" like LE will ever win that one. Not one person apologized to the families, in fact the other family was Cuban. When word got out that one family was suing the Feds, certain people tried to explain to the Cuban family that they had a right to sue also. The Cuban family disappeared.. you just have to wonder if someone (DEA or AUSA) paid them a visit and threaten deportation or worse???? With all that went on in that case, it would not surprise me in the least. Also ThomASS and Know it all Marcantel got promoted..go figure.

I used to think BCSO deputies, et al., were really great, but now my mind is definately changed....what a bunch of punk-ass dirtbags. No better than Robinson--as for Marcantel, the only redeemable thing he did was take his ass to Mexico and get Astorga!

APD officers are better than BCSO's!!

FYI to all officers that drink Starbucks coffee: my buddy's son is in Iraq and he (& his unit) really likes Starbucks coffee & miss it alot so they wrote home for it. We sent them a bunch of packs & thought Starbucks would do the right thing and send some over enough for all the troops free of charge. Got a response from Starbucks saying not only will they not send any free coffee to the troops in Iraq, they are against the war, SO NO COFFEE FOR YOU!!!

I think we should BOYCOTT STARBUCKS and their liberal-punk asses.....that crap is overpriced anyway... :(

The FBI got ASTORGA NOT MARCANTEL as he would LOVE for everyone to belive. He will also have you belive that HE and ONLY HE solved the triple that is going to trial in the upcoming months. Think again..he puked it up on this case and through the efforts of many OTHER officers, an arrest was made. NOT BECAUSE OF MARCANTEL. If you asked him, he invented police work and mostly definitely detective work. He and Thomas are all about themselves. Period. What's sad is Darren and Sal know this but do nothing to stop them. There are great deputies on the SO..many have ethics, credibility and want to do good, but those two..don't forget Joe Bowdich who headed this whole thing..talk about a dirt bag.

Bowdich is an old old corrupt cop that needs to leave law enforcement

Anonymous said...

Before we all make comments about Kirby and Fisher, we should read the report and we will see for ourselves how one sided it was against Kirby. APD already disciplined Fisher, what could they do after that, have a cop on duty who is under felony indictement??? We all know the answer to that. The report is one sided and doesn't tel all the details, ask the cop who were there.

I never hesitated removing a sex offender from the library. He had no business being there and he talked himself into going to jail.

Last time I checked most cops lose their mind when kids are victimized...I'm no exception. People who had/have first hand knowledge of any of the above listed information need to put forward primary source material and quit making allegations on a blogg.

Somebody advances their career at the expense of a kid getting victimized needs a hard reality check to the head and then resign.

Anonymous said...

You want primary source material? Just how would you post all the search warrants, case file, newspaper articles, 20/20 story, vicitm's statements etc on here? Go look in the Journal archives begining Sept 12, 1995. Talk to Lisa Trabaudo ADA on the case, Stan Whitaker, Bob Swartz..they were all there and will verify everything I'm saying. Look up the case in records..Michael Robnison. Unless of course sll of that disappeared too..just like the Feds tried to make him disappear. Lucky for some, the case file and all documents down to the fed agreement to put him in Witness protection program are safely tucked away in a file locked in a gun safe...included in that is some very incrinating statements made by Marcantile and Thomas in depositions. OHH there's another source, Mary Han and Paul Kennedy. THey will damn sure verify the allegations...so now you have it, people from both sides that will tell you the same story.

Anonymous said...

To think that they brought in Joe Bowdich to clear up APD's tarnished name after Chief Gilbert Gallegos and his deputy chiefs corrupted the dept is a bunch of hog wash!

Bowdich is almost as bad as those guys.

What a joke bringing him back. The old guy needs to get out of Law Enforcement. He is way too far behind the time!

"Just how would you post all the search warrants, case file, newspaper articles, 20/20 story, vicitm's statements etc on here?" Just post links...if you've got the information get it out there otherwise we're left to deciphere the real allegations from the bogus ones...

Anonymous said...

Apparently you have never written a search warrant or case file. There are pages upon pages. This is not my website. I can't post a link to this information. All the info WAS out there during the time it happened. You can order the tape from 20/20..you can go to the Journal Archives and look it up. You can even read the case file if you want to go to records, pull it up and pay the price.

Anonymous said...

People that were there during that case with DEA and BCSO know those deputies got screwed by Bowdich and DEA and their fairy ass Sergeant. I would venture to say 99% of APD backed the deputies involved unlike their own department. Scary Bowdich is involved on ANY level with LE much less our department. Guys watch your backs!

Anonymous said...

Don't make assumptions about what I've done or not. My point remains that telling somebody via an anonymous blog that Joe Bowdich is a heinous slime ball isn't any more effective than telling me to look up the video, the files, etc... If you want to cut somebody's throat you don't do it by sending him a letter you do it by getting blood on your hands and in this case it means putting forward information.

At the end of the day the sad fact remains that nobody gives a shit.

Anonymous said...

You're funny and stupid. How much forward can you GET...it was OUT there. Local and National attention. Guess that's not OUT there enough. Bowdich knows what his role was in that whole deal. He and several others have to TRY and sleep at night knowing they were ultimately responsible for two children being horribly molested and raped. And yes at the end of the day there are at least TWO people that give a shit..those (now adults) kids. PS. I don't see you signing your name either...

You guys are pathetic and exemplify my point exactly. Here we are years after the fact and all you have to say for yourselves is "he did that" or "he didn't do this" and "just google it and you'll see". Well all I see are a few folks that FAILED to do something because that jerkoff still has his job while your left blogging. Bravo. Nice accomplishment.

Fed Ex said...

The last time I checked, the entire city, county commission and anyone that could have removed Bowdich from office knew about that case. Also the last time I checked, not one person alone could remove him from office or cause him to be relieved from "duty". The folks that were involved did everything in their power to make the others held accountable but there is just so much someone can do when they are shot down at every turn.
It was a great accomplishment. The guy got life, at the very least the SO, Bowdich, McWethy, Marcantiel, Thomas and Dennis were made to look like fools and Bob Gorence is now a slime ball defense attorney. And most important, John Kelly did not get the congress seat he wanted so badly.
I see you are still JUST blogging too..wow, nice.

1. Well, KOAT did a blurb about pedophiles, etc. in the library so I guess "primary souce information" was put forth dumb-ass. And there's more to follow on that horrible topic....
2. the SO initially f***'ed up the investigation of the triple in the east mountains taking evidence out of the vehicle, etc. so they better have righted that wrong
3. I agree that Gorence is a scum-bag puke.

Anonymous said...

All the source material is out there, FACTS in print, not just "assumtions". Had it been up to those people involved and hurt by the DEA's and SO's lack of integrity and judgement I'm sure they would have had Bowdick's job along with several others involved.
