The Eye recently ran an Eye Poll to see you how the citizens felt about APD’s Chief of Police, Ray Schultz. Although, our poll is unscientific the results show that Schultz received an overwhelming bad rating in his performance. Our Eye Poll asked the following:
How do you rate Chief Ray Schultz given the turmoil in APD?
Rating Voters Percentage
Great 28 12%
Okay 11 4%
No opinion 9 3%
Poor 38 16%
Extremely poor 140 61%
Error margin +/- 4%
226 participants voted
Our poll shows 16% of the participants who voted, rated Schultz’s performance at “okay” to “great.” A total of 3% did not have an opinion. Here is the no shocker to us here at the Eye; a whopping 77% rate Schultz’s performance at “poor” to “extremely poor.” Let us repeat this information; 77% of the participants, who voted, rated Schultz’s performance at “poor” to “extremely poor.”
Is Schultz’s lousy rating due to all the police involved shootings? Is it due to the Schultz’s alleged involvement in the Darren White debacle? Is it that Schultz lied and stated there was “no probable cause” in the Kathy White alleged DUI case? Is it that Schultz was convicted in a United States Federal District Court of civil rights violations? Is it the record millions of dollars paid out under Schultz’s leadership or lack thereof? We could go on and on and on…
This poll probably comes as no shock to Schultz as he scrambled this week looking for a distraction. We found what we believe is that distraction, check back with us tomorrow and read what Schultz “brewed up” to take the heat off of himself again. The Eye has seen his tactics before when he sat back and let his department rip Judge Murdoch into pieces. Yes folks, the same big disaster case the special prosecutor from Santa-Fe County dismissed this week.
Stay tuned folks, tomorrows story will raise eyebrows on both ends of the isle…
