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.

Schultz should be Amongst the Primary Targets in IG Probe

DOJ (Department of Justice) has already started an investigation reviewing claims against APD to determine if they will conduct a full blown investigation. Channel 7 News told Chief Schultz DOJ may come into investigate. Chief Schultz stated, “If they come in, we’ll respect ‘that’ and anything that they ask us to do.” Schultz talked as if he has a big choice in the matter. This is the Federal Department of Justice; Chief, you have no choice. The Eye knows you like to ignore Federal stuff like civil rights violations. Channel 7 News asked Schultz, do you welcome an investigation? Schultz replied, “well, obviously we already have the PERF investigation that’s already been done…” Schultz “hymn hawed around,” it was like watching an episode of “Hee Haw!” Schultz rambled about implementing sixty different things, Blah, Blah, Blah… The bottom line is; if Schultz has nothing to hide, he and APD should welcome and embrace any legitimate investigation.

The Honorable City Councilmen, Ken Sanchez, hit it perfect when he stated to Channel 7 News, “there is a crisis in leadership; in the City of Albuquerque.” Mayor Berry was asked, do you have any concerns with all the controversy going on in Albuquerque? Berry replied, “Uh…Blah, Blah, Blah…” Berry should have just said up front, I don’t want to answer that question and I am going to avoid it. Berry followed the rules for lying or covering-up; deny, deny, deny and make counter allegations. Berry talked about the great job that the men and women of the City do risking their lives for the citizens. He also talked about his fifty million dollar package he wants from Albuquerque. Berry played the game and basically avoided the question.

Schultz should have been a target in the IRO investigation since he lied and stated that there was no probable cause for a DWI investigation. But since “Ray” is a friend of IRO Deaton, he got a free “get out of jail pass.” This was a sloppy investigation at best. Schultz in all probability ordered Beth Piaz to have Walck change the report. Our eyes tell us, Paiz was on the phone and Schultz could be heard asking Paiz, “Did Walck change that report?!?” Paiz reportedly replied, “No Chief, he has not.” Chief Ray Schultz stated, “Have him change that F-(BLIP)ing report!” Paiz allegedly told the Chief, “yes” and ordered Sgt. Wolley to instruct Walck to change the report. Schultz and Paiz should be primary targets of the IG’s investigation, not only for administrative violations but for criminal violations.

If this is true, why would Schultz ask such a question and give such an order? Who ordered him to cover up? Was Chief Schultz ordered to cover up or did he act on his own? All these questions must be answered.

Schultz shared a personal vendetta with Deaton against Walck. Deaton and Chief Schultz attended a meeting at the New Mexico LEA Board in an attempt to have Walck decertified. Their efforts were fruitless; the Board unanimously ruled in favor of Walck. Deaton slammed Walck for not conducting a DWI investigation claiming there was plenty of cause. The problem is Chief Schultz publically stated that there was not any probable cause to conduct a DWI investigation. Deaton still gave his friend “Ray” another “get out of jail free card.” Let’s hang Walck and let Schultz “skate” on this one. This is wrong, very wrong.

Schultz was found guilty of Civil Rights violations against another police officer but was never decertified or disciplined or terminated although a United States Federal District Court found him guilty. Does anyone else besides the Eye wonder why Schultz’ “skated” on this one too but he hounds a 38 year senior veteran?

Deaton should have refused and recused himself from conducting this investigation, however, just like Walck; Deaton was intimidated by his boss. Otherwise, a retired federal judge knows better than to take part in a “political shenanigan.” Maybe that is why it is such a lousy investigation.

Here is one last item of interest. According to the Journal (read it here) RJ Perry, not RJ Berry made a statement to the City Council on Monday, “urged councilors to consider the scope of what they would be asking for. It’s not necessarily a ‘friendly’ investigation to help out local police.” It appears that Schultz may need to give his “friend card” to DOJ. Let us know how this works out for you Chief. The Eye does not believe that the DOJ will honor your card like Deaton did for you.

A DOJ probe should not be “friendly,” it should be legitimate with lawful authority and factual. It is time for Berry to “chop the head off the snake.” The City’s top leadership including APD and AFD need a clean sweep and new executives from outside the current ranks that are tainted.

Paiz credibility is shot (to hell)
and Wooley you will never see LT. for your attempt to cover for Beth.
All bets are off. The shit is hitting the fan in every hall way at City Hall, so the last thing they are going to do is honor the promise made to you nor do the give a damn. Their asses are in the pan right now and you are already forgotten. Got you covered babe! Sound familiar.

For Christ sake, keep Mayor Mellon head off the news. Talk about an amateur.
We're talking DOJ coming in here, not some bullshit ABQ plan thing. Stay on topic. You dodged the reporters question about as subtle as grinding gears on a mack truck. Not smooth at all.

You can't fly an airplane, so stop pretending you know how to govern.

Everybody pissed off today. It was exhausting.
Beth cussing, TJ crapping his pants, Mayor 'Dah' losing his cool and Breen Queen's feathers all ruffled up. Ray and Darren doing what ever they do buying more shredders) and all because the sewer is backing up and the Plumber(DOJ) is on it's way to drain the cesspool.
Mop up as much sewage as you can before they get here. You know something is amiss when you hear shredders all over working non stop.

Schultz. Writing is on the wall. Perry has narrowed your replacement down to three and none are in your camp. Beth and Banks? Gone. They're as toxic as you are.

Buh bye, Schultzie!!!

I agree we need a new Chief and DC's. Someone who knows the culture of ABQ and who us officers can trust. Ray is no longer respected or effective but is vindictive. Come on Mayor fix the problem before it brings you down. Hang in there Mike W.you may still see LT. when the gang is gone.

I work at the city and started reading this blog a few weeks ago after White's wife had her DUI. If you work at city hall you know Chief Ray always goes out of his way to say hello and talk to people and be nice. The mayor is not that way. He was the first month or two but now you can ride in the elevator with him and won't even say hello. I think if the mayor listened more to Chief Ray we wouldn't have the problems we are having. We didn't have these problems until the mayor brought in White. I think we need to give Chief Ray a chance now that White is gone.

Sgt.Paul Heh said it best at the Monday night City Council meeting. Sgt. Heh stated " A.P.D. is on a very dark path ". Sgt. Heh has always stood up for the rank and file and speaks his mind to right wrongs. I believe Sgt. Heh when he stated he loves A.P.D..

Ref: Give Chief Ray a chance now that White is gone. Are you outta your mind? Give him a chance to what? Violate another officers' civil rights? Show more poor leadership? Allow him to retaliate against another officer like Arensfield? All this is documented!!! He needs to go, period. I realize you must be "Ray's" wife or family member or friend or the big turd TJ but you need to get real!

This whole mess falls squarely on the shoulders of Mayor Richard.J Berry and his lack of judgement in the people he hired to run this city for him.
Let it be documented that the Albuquerque Police Department under the leaderships of Director of Public Safety, Darren White,Chief of Police Raymond Schultz, Deputy Chiefs Paul Fiest, Beth Paiz and Allan Banks, is the only Command staff solely responsible for bringing about this investigation by the United States Department of Justice, in the history of APD.

To the person who loves Ray Schultz, ask Sam Costales how fair Ray Boy is. That was long before Berry and it cost the citizens of Albuquerque a cool million.

Nope Ray needs to go. He always has been part of the problem.

You cannot blame the chief for what has gone on. He has never allowed to be a real chief. First Marty tried to play chief then Darren did. They did not let him run the department the way he wanted to.

Today's Monahan Blog;

Won't some elder republican step in to help mayor Berry? Maybe they can't find the bunker"

Maybe, just maybe, we should have elected an elder statesman to begin with. One who knows the ins and outs of City government and has an ability to negotiate. One who possesses some finesse and one who can think on his feet. One that can be his own man instead of relying on an idiot (Darren) to lead him around by his nose, or in one DCs case by his D _ _K.

WOW, You people are too much. I agree with Heh for once. He is not the most educated but will tell the truth. Get rid of all Command Staff from DC on up. Berry is from Mayberry.

As far as the DOJ. Come on now, this is not New Orleans or Detroit with Rackateering and cops killing burying bodies and stealing money from businesses.

DOJ will ruin all of the department. 90% of the COPS do a great job. Get rid of the 10%. Thats it. Problem solved

I'm going to say this again:

Schultz will either be shitcanned or "resign" before the month is out.

The cockroaches at APD are scurrying like the little pests they are. You know what they say...the dirt always comes out in the wash! Come on APD, the public isn't as naive as you think. The public knows good cops (like Sam Costales) get black-balled and assigned to some rinky dink job like nuisance abatement or serving subpoenas. In light of that, if you aren't helping with weeding out the bad, then you are guilty by association. Where are the good cops? I don't think any ONE of you has the integrity (like Sam C.) to do the "right" thing when a workplace ethical dilemma takes place. The "right" thing is always the hardest thing to do!

Only the Corrupt Ones will have a problem with the probe. This has very little to do with Peaches' running into a curb and everything to do with the Ahrensfield issue and the part she and Darren played.

Peaches will be a problem for the boys(Ray & Darren).
She could get subpoenaed, even tho she can't testify against her husband(of convenience)Sheriff 'Butter Bean'
The facts are this; if those text messages are translated, her ass is grass. Or should we say Peaches are jam.
Nothing could save her from being indicted and just maybe the 'Bonnie' that brings down the whole Barrow Gang.

"he was never allowed to be a chief". Are you kidding me? He's had over six years, if he doesn't have it now, he's not gonna get it. It's always something or somebody else with Ray. NOT the hallmark of somebody who has leadership skills. And all his limp dick minions are the same way. Sorry, your time is up. Leave. Now.

If Ray wasn't allowed to be a chief, then he should have packed up and left the sandbox. After all he got his new high three, so his retirement is set. Either greed or the fact that he doesn't care and/or thinks he is doing a good job is why he stuck around to continue to be a horseshit manager. He sure isn't a leader.

WHY DO WE HAVE OUR HOMICIDE UNIT PROVIDE INVESTIGATIVE TRAINING. THEY ARE MEMBERS OF THE "SHOOT TEAM" AND THE TROLL BARBOA IS APPROVING THE CASES. WE ARE IN CRISIS BECAUSE OF OUR SHOOTINGS. I CAN THINK OF MANY CASES OUR HOMICIDE UNIT HAS SCREW THE POOCH ON. THE TWO MAGAZINE SALESMAN CASE ALREADY COSTS THE CITY CLOSE TO A MILLION AND WE STILL HAVE ONE TO SETTLE. THE MENTALLY DISABELED MAN WHO WAS ACCUSED OF RAPE AND KILLING HIS YOUNG NEIGHBOR. THE GUY WHO WAS ACCUSED OF KILLING SOMEONE ON THE WESTSIDE WHO TURNS OUT WAS STANDING IN LINE AT WALGREENS PICKING UP FILM. THOSE ARE JUST A FEW I CAN THINK OF IM SURE THERE IS MORE. SO LETS JUST PASS ON THESE BAD TECHNIQUES ON TO ANYONE WHO WILL LISTEN.

SCHULTZ YOU SHOULD PUT A STOP TO THIS TRAINING BUT YOU WONT. I WOULDNT RECOMMEND THIS TRAINING TO A BAD GUY.

Castro Chief? Please, That would be the worst thing that could ever happen.
He bought his rank as Lt. from Marty for $2,000. He bought his rank as Captain for $4,000 from en mayor Marty as well. DC, same thing.
Mayor Berry will want a cool $10,000 for the Chief's position. Not a problem for Castro's in-laws who are loaded.

Mike Castro left APD a well-respected individual. Throughout his career he never forgot where he came from, and looked out for all cops regardless of their rank. Those that new Mike will always remember his heart was in the right place and he served us well. Chief Castro always had an open-door policy.

Thank you for your service Mike, I for one appreciate all you did.
