We decided to continue the previous story about Al Walck. Whether you like him or not, he was a 30 plus year veteran who was loyal to the Albuquerque Police Department. His recent stroke and massive heart attack has left him in a terrible medical state. Officer Walck will no longer work again, let alone work in any law enforcement capacity. Without divulging too much of his medical condition, it is safe to say that he is far from being recovered and may suffer permanent injuries the rest of his life. Officer Walck left the department peacefully. He surrendered his letter of resignation and left with pride and dignity.
Recently, Officer Walck's mailbox contained a very suspect letter. A letter from the New Mexico Department of Public Safety advising Officer Walck that Chief Schultz had submitted his name to the Law Enforcement Board, recommending his complete
decertification. What a surprise for someone who is trying to move forward that the Chief has to give his "one last jab". He could not let his personal feelings towards Al Walck go. The Eye wishes it was surprised by the Chief's actions. Unfortunately, nothing about Chief Schultz' disrespect of an officer surprises us. Chief Schultz is constantly acting on emotion rather than intelligence. It is so interesting that Chief Schultz is more caring towards criminal offenders than to his own officers, his lack of support is worse than the department has ever seen. It is time for him to leave.
