SHOTS FIRED! BUT WHY? SOMEONES LYING...

This past Monday, December 17, 2012, APD's SWAT team was activated to deal with a barricaded subject who officers had found hiding in the roof of a house on Shirley NE. As events spilled out of control into a shooting, the 5th Floor went into crisis mode in an effort to conceal details of the actual event.  The 5th Floor spokeswoman Officer Tasia Martinez released the following statement:

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:


…[a]t approximately 7:00 p.m. the suspect believed to be Sosa opened the garage door of the home and fled the area at a high rate of speed, stealing Chavez’s vehicle, purse and cell phone. As Sosa fled he drove the vehicle in the direction of police and residents who were on the outer perimeter of the scene, charging directly at Officer Randal White who was standing by his vehicle at his perimeter post. As Sosa drove at Officer White, Officer White fired his weapon at the charging vehicle in effort to prevent the suspect from running him over. The vehicle then drove around Officer White’s vehicle, onto the pedestrian sidewalk to breach the perimeter.

The suspect fled in a Green 2005 Toyota Camry. Detectives continue their active search for Sosa. Detective have received information from witnesses who have seen Sosa since the incident occurred and received report that Sosa is not injured and is actively evading police capture.

No residents or officers sustained any injuries in this incident.

Yet, as what has become standard form, what is stated, supported, reinforced, and held to be fact by APD's chief, Ray Schultz, and his other diminutive chiefs, has little bearing to reality. Our Eyes tell us the vehicle that was shot at ONLY had its rear window shot out and only its rear window. We wonder how a vehicle fleeing from Officer White justified the use of deadly force. While Officer White may have felt reasonably justified in firing at the car, we at the Eye are concerned that Officer Martinez and Chief Schultz have now boxed Officer White into a corner where he will have to confirm their lies, and thus lie himself OR speak the truth and assert a different story. Either way the truth appears to be the shot were fired at the car as it was fleeing the perimeter and not as it was approaching posted personnel. Our Eyes also tell us several citizens had to dive for cover in fear of being shot by the 3-4 rounds fired at the car...

Shooting at a vehicle's rear window. What a coward....good job APD, keep up the half ass cowardly work! I can't wait til the DOJ is done with you fools!

What it is is but can someone tell me why Tasia Martinez is a PIO. How is this rookie ever suppose to learn police work sitting inside? No fault of her own but placing her in this position makes me wonder if this is part of APD's problem.

The excuse of the bearcat not starting. What happened to placing tire spices or spike belt at the outside of garage door. SWAT always practiced that technique not knowing if there was a car inside the garage.

What every 34 was debriefing the people coming out of the house I wonder if that was a "buddy transfer" that wasn't qualified for the position but had soft lips.

The story here seems to be YET AGAIN Schultz and company LIE and CREATE stories to fit their scenario. White's actions, if true as listed here, hardly are worthy of any significant discipline. But he is faced with a tough decision...tell the truth or lie and "be in step with Schultz." And then get fired anyway.

Citizens hitting the pavement ducking the rounds and his actions, according to you, "hardly are worthy of any significant discipline." Please do the citizens of ABQ a favor and fire yourself from APD.

The PIO is learning how to get ahead at APD early in her career.

The best cops are not rewarded by Schultz and company. Rewards are only for those who kiss ass, and I mean that literally and physically.

No offense Officer White, I am so glad that you are safe! I am only saying the following to point out the futility of being an APD officer these days.

How is it that the almighty Chief of Police is not making Officer White do a perp walk in front of the media at this very moment? Promising to throw him and his entire family in jail and then coming back for the family dog. Don't you all know that defending yourself is against SOP?

Procedural Order 2-52-3-E1 say (misspellings and all):
"When the only means of assault on an officer is by motor vehicle, officers should not fire upon the vehicle but most [sic] in the most tactically safe possible."
I think that what that is supposed to mean is that your only recourse is to move. This is a sanction 4 buddy. 5-10 days off without pay, if that is all he comes after you for. He might try to charge you with discharging your weapon within city limits [misdemeanor] or, heaven forbid, shooting into an occupied dwelling or shooting at or from a motor vehicle [both felonies].
Don't you know that the Chief wants you dead so that he can wear his class A and hold the hands of your loved one and look like he cares in front of the public? What were you thinking brother?!?!? Don't stand up for yourself, that will only land you in jail!

-Sarcasm Ended, I now return you to .... oh wait, I forgot, this is no joke. The Chief really IS trying to get your killed. Head down brother, be safe.

So according to the photo TJ is back to being a City spokesperson? Or does that mean he is back to having 34s report to him?

Hey how come DNA from a burglary of sheet metal be tested so quickly and an offender be arrested for that crime... But DNA from a HOMICIDE isn't tested for MONTHS.. And that offender went on to kill someone else AND may possibly have killed others... Clifton Bloomfield anyone??? Was the VICTIM of the burglary a high ranking officer with APD??? Is that why evidence was tested so quickly??? HMMMMMMMMMM?? Now every victim out here for any crime will want DNA swabs taken for everything. This isn't BLUE BLOODS out here where crime is solved in 47 minutes...

Anonymous said...

Bloomfild was tested and set on the desk of Argueta. Then he tried to cover it up with his GF from the DA's Officce and the on-call DA was notified of a "special meeting" between everyone. It was totally APD's acccountability. Everything is timestamped. So APD denies responsibility, over a million paid off in lawsuits and we still have one pending. Seriously?????

When cops are told to "stop that car" what do you think they are gonna do!? Seems like a clear case of following orders to me so yeah, minimal discipline.

And if I fire myself, who's gonna come the next time you whine about your little neighbor!?

Or, the guy backed out at a high rate of speed almost hitting officers. Most people pull their cars into their driveways nose first so it makes sense why the back window was shot out and only the back window.

Channel 13 do you have any other news besides APD? Every night you attack APD, however your own anchor had a long affair with an APD supervisor. Why is she allowed to report on APD? Recently she was caught with the same supervisor, AGAIN. Sounds like APD and KRQE support affairs. APD does not allow that supervisor to be PIO, what has KRQE done to their anchor?

Anonymous said...

Just because a supervisor gives you an order to stop a car doesn't mean you violate law to stop it. No one has to follow an order that is incorrect.

Food for thought: If you feel there is deadly force, you have the intent to kill, but violate policy and civil rights, are you a suspect in a murder case?

More filth and attacks from the filth on the 5th floor directed at those who shine the light on them. Maybe if the 5th floor didnt lie to the media they wouldnt have this problem. It seems to be that 13 is reporting the lies given to them by schultz. Lets consider the source of the information, shall we, hypocrit?

If you want to waste your time then watch the local news media and read the Journal. If you want to learn something, read the Alibi, the Santa Fe Reporter and Joe Monahan. If you don't give a damn, then don't complain. If you do give a damn, show up for union meetings, be a voice, talk to the DOJ, don't tell the chain of command diddly squat. It is a First Amendment freedom of speech but more impportant it is interfering with a federal investigation if you don't. I would not want the Federal attack dogs on my ass but I do want them on every dirty dealing cheap windbag that has taken good 34s and crucified (yeah, I said it) them to protect their little elves. Someone is going to talk. Someone is already talking.

What does Officer White's lapel camera show?

Let me guess 5th floor. He wasn't wearing it? It fell off during the incident? It malfunctioned? The batteries died?
It was stolen? It's lost? It was "accidentally deleted"?

This site is really eye opening about the ugliness In our society. A glimpse into the hatred of peoples hearts. We tell our children not to bully or tolerate bullying, but now I see where the bullies learn it from..u have people faces posted on ridiculous pictures you have comments calling men and women fat, u have racist comments about fellow hispanics,u call a girl's life worthless as gum on a shoe...sounds like bullying to me..and the disregard for other humans on this blog helps me see into the mindset of someone capable of unthinkable acts. U police officers bully each other, I wouldn't want to work with you guys either! no wonder ur guys' recruiting numbers suck. You all should be ashamed. Merry christmas

At 9:57 what color is your world? The only way to improve the lives of the Albuquerque citizenry is to face the reality of life here. The Eye is not a perfect forum but it is a forum that discusses the issues raised for and against police officers that must deal with the worst of society every day. The fact that they also are subjected to intense and unfair scrutiny by their own department and selective scrutiny by the local media adds to the stress level. The Eye is for information and to vent. Sometimes reality is ugly but it won't get better by ignoring it. Merry Christmas to you.

9:57,
You are like the liberals calling for the removal of all guns and using a tragedy to do it.
You are like a typical hypocrit who only sees one side of an issue. Your agenda is obvious. Try to villify this site, and the opinions within to try and discredit the truth here. Well, everyone knows who is at fault for the feelings expressed here. It is one corrupt piece of trash who continues to collect a pay check after ruining an entire city, police department and many lives with his lies, threats, cover ups, and treachery. Your buddy is a punk. And as far as I am concerned, ANYONE who takes orders to say something that isn't true, further spread lies, and perpetuate the environment that we have here, IS AS WORTHLESS AS GUM ON A SHOE. There you have it. And quote the comment right. The poster said worthless in the context of the job performed. I understood it. I didn't see "life" in there anywhere. Did you see someone say "someone's life is worthless as gum on a shoe? I for one would resign, rather than go against my grain and align myself with a bunch of lying scum and do their dirty work so that I could have a nice cush job inside getting paid to do nothing for 20 years. Then again you have to have a grain and a code to feel that way. Your friends would sell their mothers. Is it too much to ask these followers and cowards to have a spine and stand up for what is right? I guess so, because all of you nutless sacks willfully do the bidding of creeps for your rewards. I am sick and tired of these fake cosmetic cops walking around like they are on the cover of a magazine when they know if the shit hit the fan they would shit their pants and get their asses handed to them. You explain to me how someone with no time on the job goes inside, and is qualified to comment on what is going on out here on the street. You wonder why people are bitter when know nothing PIO's second guess street cops.

A Real Cop said...

..................This is why so many people are getting shot. Because we have a department full of pussies. And you must be one of them. I was told a long time ago to have thick skin if you want to be in law enforcement. If your feelings are hurt, get another job. This one isn't for you, and maybe someone's son might not get shot because you shit your pants and couldn't handle yourself. Then again, this is why you defend your coward chief. Because he justifies your fucked up shootings to make up for your lack of physical ability. Hell, why worry about being physically competent when you can just bust a cap in someone's ass when you start to lose? RIGHT!?!
The truth is the truth. If it hurts, so be it. Stack up all the shit that the individuals here have had a hand in and the things they have done to people and it would make this site look like Mr. Roger's Neighborhood. You are full of shit. with your accusations.
There are no racist comments here. That is not tolerated. When you don't get your way is not racist.
The faces posted here are the ugly faces behind every foul situation in this city. Prove me wrong. Most of the facts are here.
ANd you say "you officers bully eachother" hahahahahahahaha...
What officers. I don't see any officers! There are a handful of them out there on the street who have balls. The rest hide and the others are inside sucking on a tit. If they are not doing that they are playing golf or working 3 day weeks. We all know who the bully is. There read the memo below with the latent threats to officers from your hero about how they will be looking over officer's shoulders in reference to the DOJ investigation.
Recruiting numbers are low because of Schultz Berry Perry Levy Banks and Feist and nobody is foolish enough to work for people who will trrow them under the bus in a minute to save their own worthless ass. This is a known fact across the country now with APD.
YOU KNOW WHAT THE ACTS HERE TELL ME? People are fed up with a few dirty motherfuckers and are looking for help from everywhere to rid this place of them. People are tired of being lied to and they are speaking the truth.
Fuck you and your friends. You are both the ruination of this department and police work in general!

Sam Spade said...

It is evident that this chief's downfall is under way.

This chief of police stands in front of the media, and states that the officer shot at the vehicle because it would have been so dangerous if he got away. What was dangerous? Was it the car driving down the street or the fleeing felon? Could the car have hit bystanders? Well..... Lets think about this shall we? The car had already passed the officer, and was driving away. Would a bullet to the back of the driver's head have certainly ensured that this vehicle would have careened out of control striking someone, or possibly driving through someone's home and killing them in their livingroom? And what about the bullets? Couldn't a few of those bullets lobbed at that car have gone a stray and struck an innocent bystander? Those bullets were going in the same direction as the car were they not?

This chief really sounds credible defending this one when he recently had Feist and Sgt. Jason Peck fabricate a case against two officers, terminate them unjustifiably, and then lie about it to cover for their illegal actions when those two officers were apprehending an even more violent fleeing felon who was known to be armed and wanted for kidnapping, robbery, agg batt, and HOMICIDE as he was fleeing into a hotel filled with families, armed with a gun and knives after he almost killed people with his driving in a stolen vehicle? It really makes you think. I remember when this hit the news. The chief made all kinds of baseless accusations against those officers. It is evident that this chief either downplays, up plays, fabricates or omits information as he sees fit in reference to incidents according to his agenda at the time it happens. In these cases the recent one is now that the DOJ is here. In the case of the two officers who had their rights violated, that was before the DOJ was here, and during a time when the heat was on. This was an obvious attempt to bail himself out of an impending DOJ investigation. For one he goes overboard with outlandish excuses, for the other, he breaks the law and violates civil rights. Real bright leadership here.

And what is going on with that homicide case anyway? The video of that suspect was posted on channel 13 asking anyone to help in identifying him. Why in the world would the media not follow up on that? It's very odd that there are no other suspects in the Brandy Kent murder case. No follow up with information that the suspect was caught? Is it because someone dropped the ball? I really hope that this chief wouldn't stall a murder investigation so as not to get egg on his face. That would be pretty disgusting. About as disgusting as framimng two officers for doing their jobs to get himself out from under all the dirt he has done. Someone must have been very afraid of what the DOJ would find to go to such lengths. Time will tell.
Tick Tock.

The Eye censors! I have sent in two comments regarding the comments of alleged fooling around between KRQE and APD, simply saying post the names and the EYE refuses to post them. What is the EYE hiding? Is someone at KRQE involved with the EYE and doesn't want bad press?

One other thing, if the Eye will post it. The Real Cop needs to stop watching FOX and blaming "liberals". The founding fathers were considered liberal for their beliefs. You make some good points but they fall on deaf ears when you make blanket comments that come from Fox news.

According to all the media that has been done on 34 Burge prior to the search warrant being sealed. How did Channel 7 get a copy of the SW before it was sealed? If they asked 34 Burge if they could look around his house I believe that constitutes a "search" and the Detective has to be specific on his intentions. Was the look around 34 Burge's house include a peak at the TV then was used as PC in a SW. If you are looking around someone's house or car that can't be used as PC for something else.

Did they record 34 Burge?????? Iam just saying and asking??????
