Former APD Officer Brad Arensfield addressed the Albuquerque City Council and spelled out what he has been through with APD and the retaliation he has suffered. Arensfield told the Council that he could not understand how Chief Ray Schultz, who was convicted in a United States Federal District Court of civil rights violations, is still allowed to serve on the New Mexico Law Enforcement Board. Arensfield stated that Schultz is a liar and runs APD with the use of retaliation. Arensfield offered proof from the records provided to him by the FBI.
Arensfield read the record out loud. It stated then, Deputy Chief, Mike Castro, was ordered to do an investigation on Arensfield as retaliation for testifying at a homicide trial involving another APD officer. As a result of the testimony given by Arensfield, the officer who was off duty when the death occurred was cleared. Schultz wanted the other officer fired as a result of the (justified) murder. After being cleared, this opened the way for the other officer to be reinstated with APD. This infuriated Schultz.
Arensfield is set to be sentenced shortly for obstruction of justice in an FBI investigation. Arensfield was convicted of notifying a friend about what he believed was an APD investigation. Arensfield’s son worked at the business that was being targeted. Arensfield removed his son and told the owner about the investigation. The owner stated that he already knew about the investigation because Darren White’s wife had been texting the owner’s wife about the investigation with all the details. White told the owner and his wife that he would take care of all of it and clear Arensfield. According to the owner, White claimed that it was all a political set up. The owner claims White lied at the FBI trial and failed to follow through on his promise to correct the record.
Schultz has lied several times and proof does exist. The question then becomes, why does Berry keep him? "The writing is on the wall." It is time for Berry to clean house.
Arensfield acknowledges his poor judgment but this case does not warrant prison. Knowing how corrupt White and Schultz are, this is a good time to show your support for Arensfield.
