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.

Is Chief Ray Schultz adopting Libyan Leader, Muammar Gaddafi’s Tactics?
They love me! I will not give up power! Does this sound familiar? These are a few things that Libya’s, Muammar Gaddafi had stated. Gaddafi has also called for his armed military forces to open fire on civilians. If you listened to Chief Schultz, his personal feelings are hurt; he has threatened to unleash the Attorney General on a Facebook page. Why can’t APD put this much work into solving the Westside murders? All of the victims were belittled by being referred to as the “buried bodies on the Westside.” They were all human beings and victims of murder. Respect; you have to give it to earn it. This brings to mind the question of disillusion. Does the action of any of these people seem disillusioned or do they mirror each other?
Below is a letter to the Eye On Albuquerque that gives some strong points and is worthy of reading.
Way to go Channel 13. The MAM monster finally raises one of its tiny heads and unleashes an underwhelming and unimpressive report concerning what people are posting on the Eye and Fans of AP. First off let’s not tee off and hate-on this poor, young, underpaid and overworked reporter. Let’s save that for her news director, producers, managing editor and Anchors who approved and likely dictated her script. These are the people who for whatever sinister reason, insist on avoiding the REAL story here about police corruption at the highest level, and instead trivialize the facts into a story about police flirting with insubordination. The cherry on the cake was the out-take on the sound-byte with Chief Schultz being asked whether he felt he had lost control of his police officers. Wow, someone needed to tap our young reporter-friend on the shoulder and ask her if she had lost control of the interview. That question for one second made me wonder if she thought she was interviewing Kim Jong-II or Fidel Castro. Last I checked we live in AMERICA. Lately, at APD and with those in charge of decision making at local media outlets it FEELS like we are all living in Communist China…. Not to mention what the top brass has allowed to be done to Brad Ahrensfeld and The Bryans. But do you see the sadly ironic element of this story that aired on KRQE? Channel 13 IGNORED the real story about corruption that the very blogs at issue and facts clearly spell/scream out, and instead shot as low as possible for a story on the issue of control and censorship…. only to have the reporter controlled and censored.
While there is a culture of corruption cultivating at APD coming from the top down, there is also a sad culture of kindergarten crime coverage in Albuquerque. SO, if you are a hog-tied reporter in town, let me offer some insight. First of all, stop sniveling. Your bosses are going to fire you anyway it’s just a matter of time. You’ll quickly get too good, too expensive, too hard to push around, or some combination or all of the above. When that happens, you’ll move on to the next market and make more money and work in a more ethical environment. If that doesn’t happen you’ll move on to a bigger market and… see previous sentence. Either way, you have nothing to lose and all your self-respect, dignity and credibility to gain. Go get the story. Use your resources wisely and get interviews on the side when you’re out getting the stupid crap they make you cover day to day. Put it together and MAKE COPIES. Then present it to your news director. REFUSE to have it altered, and if it’s rejected SELL IT… TO THE ASSOCIATED PRESS or DATELINE under another name. If you have even a shred of journalistic integrity I don’t see how you can walk away.
The author of this letter asked that their name be withheld due to fear and intimidation created by the Berry Administration.
Channel 13 missed the entire true story. They bought into the poor me routine and were lead straight to the “slaughter house.”
During Schultz’s interview on channel 13, Schultz threw out a few cheap buzz words like cyber stalking and harassment. Chief Schultz ruined what credibility he might have mustered when he said, “this also is very ‘close’ to the line of harassment and cyber stalking.” This is not a game of horseshoes Chief Schultz; there is no almost here. Either it is or it is not. From your statement, it is not.
If you don’t like what is on a blog or Facebook page, don’t go there. It is kind of like a child, “Mom, it hurts when I do this…” Simple, then do not do that anymore.
The key phrase is public officials are held to a higher standard than private citizens when proving libel because the Constitution says people can speak out against government, research case law.
Gaddafi has his military and Schultz has his internal affairs unit. The use of either because of personally hurt feeling is wrong and illegal. Wake up! Ruling by fear and intimidation has not worked and will not work. This only invites the pushing back to regain freedom. The days of dictatorships are no longer acceptable.
What’s your thought on this Mayor Berry??
That’s what we thought…
