Pay to Play Alive and Well

About a year ago, then city of Albuquerque Public Safety Director, Darren White, exerted his position as the city’s highest ranking law enforcement official at the scene of an accident involving his wife. Not that a husband shouldn’t be concerned if his wife is possibly injured, but when you are responsible for overseeing the operations of the very agency responding to your spouse’s care; one would expect a little bit of discretion. After all, the appearance of any impropriety by and of itself is enough to influence any objective investigation towards that of favoritism. Kind of like how Chief Schultz says the appearance of police misconduct is itself police misconduct.

We’re not saying that Darren White did indeed influence the investigation by now deceased Officer Al Walck, but we are saying there are times when because of your title and it means you don’t get all the rights a regular citizen has. In the case of what occurred with PSD Darren White, he should not have ever even arrived on scene and should have respected his position and waited for an update. It’s clear the scene was handled in a way much different than it would have been for any other citizen because of Mr. White’s presence. Mr. White then paid the price for this incident by “resigning” from his position with the City of Albuquerque.

But Mr. White did not have to worry about employment for long. His friend, Dan Mourning (of Capo’s restaurant on Lomas NW) quickly arranged to have White hired as Director of Security at Expo New Mexico's struggling Racino. Then, and as broken by the Eye, Mr. White was then promoted to “Project Manager” of the renovation of the casino located at the Expo. Despite not having any professional experience or a contractor’s license, Mr. White was given authority over a multi-million project. Now our Eye’s tell us, Mr. White is now the general manager of the entire Racino facility. We at the Eye are curious about this because aside from the obvious question “When does it end?” we wonder what Governor Martinez is thinking given Mr. White’s track record of quitting, resigning and failure.

As Governor Johnson’s Secretary of Public Safety, Mr. White was the focus of numerous no-confidence votes and objections by rank and file officers of the New Mexico State Police and the New Mexico Department of Corrections employees. In the midst of a total inability to manage his position (Mr. White redefines the term “overpromotion”) Mr. White then abandons Governor Johnson under the false assertions of protesting the governor’s decriminalization of marijuana campaign. Mr. White then rallies the Republican votes and is able to earn the position of Bernalillo County Sheriff. But again, he flirts with abandoning this position to run for Congress whereby he is solidly trumped by rookie politician Martin Heinrich by over 11 points. Shortly upon returning as sheriff, his department is stung by a class action lawsuit whereby the county had to pay millions because Mr. White’s authoriezed is deputies to seize funds illegally. Again with too much liability threatening him, Mr. White then abandons it again in favor of a position given to him by the new mayor of Albuquerque: RJ Berry. While Mr. White oversees APD, and oversteps his authority at the scene of his wife’s accident and again at the suspicious death scene of prominent lawyer Mary Han, Mr. White stirs up so much controversy that once again he abandons Mayor Berry.

Now Mr. White is the General Manager of Expo New Mexico's Racino. In the midst of an unfolding pay to play scandal that rivals the allegations against Governor Richardson, Mr. White is front and center of one of the State’s largest expenditures of public funds. Given that Mr. White's only gambling management experience is dropping a quarter in a slot machine and handling (or mis-handling) of the public's money, given that Mr. White's only construction management experience is putting a new roll of toilet tissue on the dispenser and the deconstruction of public safety agencies, we at the Eye have to ask; "Really???"

Today is Friday, July 20th,2012…anybody want to bet Mr. White will NOT be in the same position this time next year?????

Are you really shocked that the new Gov is corrupt? Meet the new boss - same as the old boss. What- she's Republican? She as corrupt as Uncle Bill. Cut from the very same cloth. She is perfectly aware of all of Darren's escapades and yet has taken care of the one taking care of Darren at least that's what I have read. The only thing channel 7 cares about is the trash being dropped by the trash trucks, yet when there is any scandal involving the brass at APD you only hear a little blurb. Corruption is alive and well and Darren's situation proves it!!!

Hey White,
You fat gapped toothed Barney Rubble looking motherfucker. You and your pals decided to play with the wrong men. What is happening to you and your gang of corrupt punks is by no means a coincidence. Karma has a big part, but you picked the wrong fight, and the wrong people to frame. Hell is coming for all the corrupt liars in in the COA and APD. Your head punk is on his way running, one of his coward chiefs just jumped out the back door. THer is not a state far enough in this country to hide from teh coming subpoenas. The rest of them are all comfirmed liars who can't even testify, floating in a cess pool of lies corruption, sabotage and their own shit piss and vomit so deep and turbulent they don't have much time left. They are worthless in their credibility, and have to have others do their assigned chores should there be a need for the explaining of those directed actions. The DOJ sees through their games. All of your plans have crumbled and fallen apart. Mary Han's case will smash you like the bugs you all are. The next few lawsuits will result in criminal charges against quite a few unsuspecting individuals who thought they had people fooled, but were under the quite the microscope the whole time they were doing their dirty work. When you lie to the feds whether through words or omission, you are going to jail. Put it on paper in a police report or legal document like 2 APD sergeants, and you are definitely going to have a long hard bumpy legal road in front of you with the end result being an unemployment line being the least they are looking at. And saying you were only following orders is only going to bring more of you scum down. You see, this is what happens when you frame someone. This is what happens when you play the ultimate hyppocrit and when you are the real shit stain on society. And you clowns are stuck with one of the worst lying attorneys there is who represent nothing but the lying faction of this ailing city. She might as well be your twin sister seperated at birth. Good luck swimming in a criminal and civil blender that someone is about to turn on high and snap the switch off on, you no good piece of shit. When you fuck people over, don't be suprised when tapes of your conversation come up later on, proving you a liar. Two lying sergeants are about to see just that, very soon when they lie under oath and the tapes of their assumed off the record conversations bury them when they lie about it. An 11 year police career down the tubes because that sergeant tampered with an ongoing criminal investigation. Everyone has the choice to stand up against injustice, and do the right thing. No mercy for them when they choose the opposite and lie. Your city attorney can't help any of you. It is out now. The biggest lawsuit to date hasn't even dropped yet, and when it does, the tiniest cannibal islands that haven't even been charted yet will know about what all of you have done.

Schultz = Stain on the badge.
Feist = Stain on the panties.
Paiz = Stain on the book of morals
Banks = Stain on the lie detector.
TJ = Overall stain on whe world
Levy = Stain on integrity.
White = Persistent fecal stain.

And Rob and Berry, when these cowards crumble, you all will be implicated also. Get ready for the storm guys. All your meetings, secret phones, contrived plans and schemes are known and coming to light.

Adiose Donkeys!

Whoa, White was at the Han scene?! Anyboday remember how Darren's son was 47 all over town when Darren was on his honeymoon? We had ATLs for his Hummer in the FoothiLls area command. And a nosey insurance adjuster alerted Apd to a false claim. Something tells me we got a problem Houston.

I theink the media should post a uc camera at the large movie theaters. Lets see how many cops drive by.

Schultz where did you get it in your mind that in the Officers spare time they will drive by theaters? Guess you don't know the manning levels in the FSB. No time to be doing that stuff. Besides we have to turn on lapel camera with any ctizien contact. Who wants to do that and increase our chances of being fired in case we forget to turn it on.

Bader I'm on you're side all the way. Funny how its just us peons getting shit on by manangement. They take care of their own. This is a perfect example. Bader if more than qualified to be a team leader. More so that that Sgt. is but Sgt walks away.

Meet the new boss, same as the old boss. BUT the Journal/Proctor making a fuss over the SWAT video is a friggn joke. PUHLEASE!

But let's assume there are issues (and I don't believe there are any)...thanks for Sgt. Alex Catsis for advising his fellow officers that he was recording them (is that NOT a violation of SOP in and of itself?). Thanks also goes to Catsis for telling officer Bader to tone it down. In fact, by not telling Bader to tone it down, Catsis endorses Bader's conduct. Assuming Bader's conduct is in violation of SOPs then Catsis himself is in violation of SOPs by failing to act and endorsing such activity. WHERE IS THE APOA in this mess???? How much you want to bet Catsis skates with nothing while all this attention is thrown on Bader...the guy who was shot at.

Total bullshit. Hey Journal editorial board...get a fuck'n clue...why do you always let APD's management get away with this when their hands are DIRTY DIRTY DIRTY!

I am thinking of coming to Abq and testing for APD and I recently found this blog. It sounds like APD had some problems right now and I was hoping for some advice from the officers on here if I should reconsider testing with APD and try other area departments like BSCO or Rio Rancho instead. Any advice/info will be greatly appreciated, thanks

Didn't see one lapel camera on anyone above the rank of LT today at the Officer Appreciation Day @ the NE SUB. The 5th floor was really chatting it up with citizens no cameras running though.. Double standard alive and well. Can't find the 5th floor until there is free food. Then they appear to eat like HOGS... Priceless...

Reality is the line officers/ SWAT/ Detectives etc are the ones who take the blame. Not the management. We live in a different world folks. Whats good for the goose in NOT good for the gander. DO as I say, not as I DO.

We are in the 21st century. A social network media frenzy society. Expect this to happen becuase it will continue.

Dont blame the Journal as their job is to sell papers. Blame the APD adm. This is what they have built and it took years to come to fruition under Schultzy.

Please get a public relations person that looks older than my kid's babysitter. I'm sure the girl you have now is a sweet kid but are you not a police department? Please have somebody who looks like a cop and at least old enough to drink.

To the guy considering employment with APD, There are a ton of great officers here. They are being undermined, and used as cannon fodder by their administration. They are being set up, framed and LIED on by their administration, and the administration's cowardly order taking minions. Do not think of coming to APD. You will be taught how no be a victim in a uniform at the police academy by a civilian. You will be thrown under the bus as soon as you have to defend yourself. Who wants to work for a disgusting corrupt administration who fosters such mistrust for their employees that they are forced to videotape every single encounter with the public while the administration themselves are bonafide and documented liars under oath?!?!?
APD is in shambles now. Officers are leaving in droves. They are below manpower standards and they will be two hundred less next year. If you valus your life and integrity, look elswhere. It's a shame but true. Hopefully the administration of APD will be out the doof real soon. Until then, Look into another department. BCSO is a good department but just not far enough away from the shitty influence of the 5th floor of APD. Look elswhere! The APD academy will soon be graduating cabbage patch kids.

Real proof is everyone leaving the second they can retire and buying time to get there faster. Forget the days of us going over 20 years. Fifth floor will blame it on PERA changes and keep reporting injured light duty and terminal leave in the numbers. No journalist will ask why is everyone willing to take the 20% paycut from salary to retirement amount, so here's the answer, it's no longer worth the headache.

Ref 7:54,
The city attorney is giving classes on how to use hearsay without having to back it up right up there on the 5th floor in her cozy office next to the chief. Something is wrong when you have all the termites co-habiting in the same nest. Lying cheifs, deputy chief's and a poor sergeant who's about to lose his job.
