Yes, you read that correctly. Our local embarrassment, Mayor Berry told KRQE News (read it here) that “he plans to improve city services by rolling out his 25-year plan for the city.” The citizens of Albuquerque need improved city services now, not in twenty-five years. If this mayor cannot run the City now, what makes him think he can run it any better in twenty-five years?
Berry was commenting on a survey the City funded. The City survey slammed the police. According to the survey, “only half of people polled felt APD treated citizens with respect.” According to the story, Mayor Berry said “regaining public confidence in APD’s a top priority for his administration.” The survey also stated, “Less than half of all people felt ‘very safe’ outside at night in the city.” The survey also revealed that “13 percent felt ‘very safe’ downtown at night.” The Mayor’s answer to this; “Berry wants to address that by attracting more businesses and families to the downtown area.” For what, so those businesses can be robbed or burglarized or for families to be victimized by the high crime rate downtown? The downtown area would have to be scrubbed clean before anyone in their right mind would consider moving into the downtown area.
The survey also stated, “Less than half of all people felt "very safe" outside at night in the city.” Berry responded by saying, “Whether it's eating, entertainment, whatever it happens to be, to bring more people down there with their families, I think it will get better over time.” Once again, who would knowingly take their families where there is an extremely high propensity to have someone injured or victimized? Here is the truth of this statement; yes, over time it will get better, only because this administration will be gone.
Berry claims “regaining public confidence in APD is a top priority for his administration.” Then Berry rambles on and states, "We want to make sure we're going out there every day and getting the trust of the community." Where is the “we’re?” Does Berry carry around an imaginary friend in his pocket? Berry has done nothing to try and gain the community’s trust. Keeping White till the ship ran aground and continuing to back White knowing full well, that he made a horrendous mistake, is completely unacceptable. To add insult to injury, Berry keeps an insurance policy to ensure the ship will never sail again by retaining the “has-beens” of the Marty Era. Schultz and Breen are not respected and have lost all ability to lead the men and women of public safety.
It seems that Captain BlueBerry and his ship of fools will always be wrecked, because this ship wreck will never be repaired. Public trust will never be regained with these fools sitting in Berry’s ship’s “bow-el.”
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.
