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. Compliments of one of our Eyes

BERRY SET CITIZENS TO BOIL

As the City continues to deteriorate with unprecedented job losses, a corrupt police administration, the Department of Justice preparing for a take-over of the police department, an out of control drug use problem and a barrage of many other systemic problems;  Berry wants a second term as Mayor to finish ruining the City of Albuquerque?

The following is what one of our Eyes told us and used a parable for comparison:
If a pot of water is placed on a stove to boiling hot and a frog was placed into the boiling pot; the frog will immediately jump out! 
Now place a pot of water on the stove (with no heat initially) and place a frog into the pot; the frog will stay in the pot.  Turn on the heat slowly and continue to keep turning it up slowly.  Eventually the water will start to boil and the frog will parish but never get out of the pot.

Here is the comparison.  Berry promised to make Albuquerque a better place to live for all.  In actuality Berry has set the citizens of Albuquerque to boil.  Berry placed the citizens of Albuquerque in a pot and turned the burner on a little at a time until it reached HIGH!  Folks, we are all boiling in the pot!  We need to stop the atrocities’ Berry has caused. Turn off the stove and allow healing and improvement.  Berry has slowly desensitized us and we have gotten use to his lying and political game playing.   
Berry’s biggest promises were a better Albuquerque, more jobs and a reduction in crime.

Results:
  •  QUALITY OF LIFE OVERALL IS DOWN!
  • CRIME IS UP!
  •  THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE IS PREPARING TO TAKE      OVER APD!
  •   ALBUQUERQUE HAS LOST MORE JOBS THAN ANY OTHER CITY IN THE UNITED STATES!

  • FORBES MAGAZINE CLAIMS ALBUQUERQUE IS NOT A GOOD PLACE TO BUY A HOME OR START A NEW BUSINESS.

Is this the record Berry is running on?  

 Allow Paul Heh to take the heat off the citizens and place that same pressure on getting jobs/careers into Albuquerque, realizing a true reduction in crime and correcting the problems in APD.  Berry stated he wants to force thieves out of the City/out of the region or PUT THEM IN JAIL.  This is asinine!  You cannot throw everyone in jail.  They have an addiction, an illness and this is all a cry for help.  We must correct the underlying problem; drugs. Is there anyone that is reading this blog who does not know someone who is addicted to drugs? Or know someone who has been victimized by a drug user? Or know a family member or extended family member who is battling drugs?

The answer is 99% of us have been affected by someone addicted to drugs some how and/or some way. 
  Mayoral Candidate Paul Heh wants to start a true and meaningful drug rehabilitation center named after local celebrity, Johnny Tapia.  This is in hopes that it will encourage our youths and others to stop the use of drugs that served to the demise of Mr. Tapia.  The rehabilitation center will do just that; rehabilitate!  Get the thieves off drugs and give them a life skill so when they are released they DO NOT return to a life of crime.  These same people will pay taxes, become productive citizens again and become part of the solution instead of the problem. This will stop the revolving door syndrome Berry has encouraged during his tenure.

  This will relieve the pressure overall in the justice system (police, courts and correctional systems).  Why would Berry shove the City’s problems into other communities? This results in the City’s problems being forced upon another community to solve and deal with.  Paul Heh has stated the Mayor must own-up to the problems and solve them.  Heh is willing to do just that; take ownership of the problems and solve them.
  Do you want a person who will solve Albuquerque's problems and make Albuquerque a better place to live for you, your family and your friends, or more ill-responsible leadership of Berry with more job losses and higher crime rates?

  RJ Berry has hinted his intentions to run for Congress.  He would be wise to withdraw from the mayoral race while his name is intact.  After Berry loses this mayoral race in disgrace; his chances of being successful in a run for Congress will be nothing more than an exercise in futility.   If R.J. Berry continues on this same road he has been on, his name will be just as tainted as another “Mayor Barry” from Washington D.C. (Marion Barry).

Paul is a great guy and I have known him since he moved here in 1986. That being said- its nice to see someone saying what else he is going to do if elected. We all know whaat he would do that first Monday morning- but come that second day and the following 4 years, what else is going to happen-- you can only fire all the chiefs once.

Paul Heh can run a strong election against Berry...but let go of the Johhnny Tapia idea for rehab name. Let's remember he also beat his wife and is related to the Padilla's.

Say what you will, but now, Albuquerque needs a cop to run this city. I know, a cop right? However this cop is Mr. Integrity and will not be owned or beholden to no one. That cop is Seargent Paul Heh.
Case in point; and go ahead and look this up if you will; back in the 60s the City of Philadelphia elected a cop, yes a cop named Frank Rizzo. He was a tough as they got and criminals feared him like nobody's business. Yes a street cop turned mayor to the fourth largest city in America. He went on to served two four year terms and Philadelphia has never been the same. He was great for the city, the people loved him and interestingly enough, during the nationwide riots of 1968, Philadelphia was the exception, because Mayor Frank Rizzo would have none of it. Any questions?

I'm more than not qualified to tell Mr Heh how to run the city however it is true that it's more than public safety that needs to be dealt with. As a.city employee he will need to bring back union negotiations, stop the bleeding out of pay especially for the lowest paid of us, (that would be my level).Money could be saved by getting rid of high paying duplicative positions, let senior level workers have the first bite of the apple to get overtime instead of keeping temps. To cover those shifts ..the temp agency for the library is from out of state and the temps make 1/2 of what the.agency charges the city. The library works their people over 40 hrs. A week but admin. Tells us it will not pay overtime. We have training sessions at night after work and they refuse to give us OT. Time for some big changes!

Change is overdue in Family & Community Services as well. Specifically the Office of Child Development. Teacher shortages and lack of support staff has left moral at an all time low while leaving the youngest citizens of Albuquerque many times in a classroom that is out of ratio. Management on power trips has become the norm and seasoned, experienced staff is leaving in record numbers to escape the abusive environment that exists. Is this the way to create an environment that is supposed to provide much needed services to families with children ages birth to five? I hope Mr. Heh will also focus on preventive programs in place that are provided by home visitors and early head start teachers of the department that the city is at risk of losing slots federal $$$ due to lack of recruitment efforts. Really in NM? One of the poorest states in the country. Things need to change in a whole lot of departments Mr. Heh. What do you plan for social programs and child development programs for our kids birth-five? We need you to have our backs...the working stiffs of city government. I look forward to hearing more from you Mr. Heh!

If you are working OT and not getting paid as an hourly employee that is against the law. Stop being afraid. If you are clerical call Deb Renaldi Clerical Union President she works at APD or if you are management call Lee Whistle Union Mgmt vice President at Solid Waste. If you are an exempt employee (salary) then you work as needed. Good Luck

Anonymous said...

I just Emailed Deb about it Sunday. She's helped me b4 and hope she can again.The problem with the library is that it's systemic ....one person will get their issue solved (me) but they continue to violate fsla with others that don't speak up.I've always spoken up but I want to shine a light on how bad the library admin. Is toward their employees. Taking away our chairs so we have to stand all day? ?? Really? ?

Question for both Paul Heh and Pete Dinelli (Mr. Dinelli you created the position and hired the current manager): If elected Mayor will you get rid of or replace the current City of Albuquerque 911 Communications Manager?

Maybe it is time to re-evaluate bringing back an APD uniformed command presence back into the APD communications center. Currently calls for service are still being held and stacked like cord wood waiting to dispatched, moral is in the dumps, turnover is still remains an issue, the current manager has not lived up to her title as a manager.

Remember this quote candidates for Mayor:

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, concerned citizens can change world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has." —Margaret Mead

Paul J. Heh said...

Thank you for your question. I do not approve of the management of APD overall. There has been several blunders in the Communication Center. Based on my understanding, experience and the problems that are associated with the APD’s 911 Communications Center; there will be a sworn captain place in the Communications Center when I am Mayor. I expect supervisory personnel to be responsible and I will hold people accountable for the good and the bad.

Anonymous said...

If calls are holding it's either because: there are no officers available to send, the current area command sgt/lt wants the calls held for the next shift, dispatcher is failing to dispatch/cross dispatch on the calls. Dispatchers are repeatedly told not to hold calls. If that is happening it is the duty of control to address the issue, if the problem exists on communications end. Having a Commander in the communication center would not work because the experience of most call takers/dispatchers is that of call center, not sworn officers. If that is the route that any leader in the further chooses to take then one would hope that commander, in addition to having a degree in criminal justice, would have a degree in business. So much of what communications does is based on "customer service".

If there is to be a positive change we must elect Heh. If you do not live in the City talk to your friends and ask them to vote for Heh. Berry should not survive a DOJ investigation and he should of already put a handle on Schultz.

omg please you don't need a sworn officer in charge of comm. its been a diaster everytime we had a sworn person in charge. they are never around and always bitchin that they want to do real police work.

@ 8:21 PM

APD is the largest PD department in the state which inherently means the busiest and they don't have not a single uniformed presence in their comm center?

When Schultz is eventually asked leave he can take his comm manager back to AZ with him. Mayor Chavez along with Dinelli added this high dollar beaucratic appointed position that has proven to be of no benefit to the taxpayers. The same problems this position was supposed to address and fix still persist today.

Go back under your rock Berry. Not half as one sided as you and your punk assed creep Police Chief! Dickheads, all of ya!

Anonymous said...

@821 I completely agree. If we're going to keep bitching about needing 34s for patrol then stop putting them inside, comm center, IT, clerical support coordination for court services, wrecker services, pawn shop ..... - 95% of the work could be done by civilians, if there was one good sworn actually supervising and holding them accountable. The City won't have to keep paying to train people who will just transfer out in three years and then retire, the civilians cost less, and more 34s will be doing what they came to the Department to do, go work the field.

Anonymous said...

The way I see it, Comm center needs somebody who is fluent in CUSTOMER SERVICE and has a background in law enforcement. It's a hybrid need of both. They need to know how to manage citizen needs but also be able to express what exactly can be done so the caller feels their needs are addressed. Having 34s go out just because a caller requests them is raising a false expectation of service. It's a police department, not a concierge service.

@ 6:57 AM

In your post you stated, "I completely agree." Meaning you agree with the poster of 8:21 PM, then further into your post you state and to quote you again, "if there was one good sworn actually supervising and holding them accountable."

Not sure what your saying, but, I think you actually agreed with an APD uniformed officer with direct oversight assigned to radio.

Nobody said anything about a uniformed officer sitting down answering 911 calls and dispatching those functions would still be done by civilians. To your comment concerning cost of a uniformed APD officer vs. the current manager, the civilian manager makes $46.77 hourly/ $97, 281.60 yearly. Save the money and hire an officer or two with that kind of money.

APD absolutely should have a uniformed command level officer in their communication center. To use a line thrown around by city administration of late: this is an industry standard best practise other professional law enforcement agencies around the country subscribe to.

P.S. VOTE FOR HEH on October 8th!

Want yo know why the proceeds. From. THE FRIENDS OF THE LIBRARY are not posted on the City's transparency website.they rake in huge dollars thousands if not hundreds of thousands. They use city labor to sort and collect the donations and they have offices in the Main Library. So where is their accountability and what do they do with the money? Kickbacks to library advisory board? .library director?

Dispatchers and 911 do a good job. I know I would rather be a 34 than a DP. We all sit down there for OJT but I think it is a whole different world that I know I wouldn't want to do.

Paul Heh respects all DP's and 911's. We have to vote to make a change.

APD has pretty much spoiled the citizens of Albuquerque for too many years. What needs to be done is this... If someone calls 242-COPS and wants to report a crime that has no offender info AT ALL. The call takers HAVE TO DIRECT the caller WITHOUT QUESTION to a Substation where there are CSA's that can take those reports... If the caller INSISTS on a uniformed officer then that call WILL hold until all other IMPORTANT calls are handled. This insisting on a 34 crap that we see added to almost EVERY FRICKEN call lately is BS.... And if a caller leaves their vehicles unlocked, property in plain view, garage doors open then they deserve to be victims... No 34s should be dispatched..... And the 44s are out of control.. Station 42s if there are no injuries and vehicles are driveable. If a 34 gets dispatched to a 45 that REALLY is only a 44 because one of the drivers is too lazy to go to a SUB and tells the call taker he is injured then he gets a ticket for wasting a 34s time.... Come on Mr Heh help the field units out here we are sent to WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYY to many BOGUS calls each and every day...

Well I work in radio and I've been here when there is sworn and civilian and I have to say sworn does not want to be here. They seem to be "placed" here but it'll can't really say if they were or not in the past. And most of the sworn has never done my job as a dispatcher or control so there is no understanding of my job let alone care for what I do.

2nd "insisting on 25 " was an order brought down a long time ago by the mayor. Which one? Couldn't tell you because we always get "orders" and we do what were told

3rd. Erika is a dispatcher at heart. I know that doesn't really mean anything to sworn but to me it means everything. It means I can go to her and tell her a scenario with an officer, a call, a dispatcher and she gets why I made the decisions I made. I would willingly pay her the pay she is getting to deal politically with the chain and the mayor and leave us to do our job.

lastly, every officer should come into radio and sit with a dispatcher and 911 to see what we do. We don't get into physical fights with offenders. We don't write reports. We don't take bullets for crappy pay. But regardless of that our job is hard. Its hard on the mind the soul and heart. And our families take the toll as well.
I don't think half the people in the department could do a dispatcher or 911's job.

Guess what. You work for me mother fucker. Cops whine, bitch and complain about their jobs and then they talk about citizens like this. It's the cops that have been spoiled far too long and they act like entitled bitches.

What are you going to do to raise morale among the citizens towards these ass hole cops that pop up with these kind of statements? You cops are NO better than any other person that performs the functions of their jobs for a paycheck.

You sound a lot like the whining bedwetter draftees I had to serve with in the Army. Were you "drafted" into APD, or did you "apply" for your job or position?

"APD has pretty much spoiled the citizens of Albuquerque"? You need to seriously rethink your misplaced attitude of "superiority" and come to grips with reality. You are the "employee" in this situation and the spoiled citizens of Albuquerque are your "employers". That's reality, Whiny Little Snot Nose. And go buy yourself some diapers so you don't wet the bed.

To 10:16, You are 100% right. There are little crybabies who think they are better than having to handle auto accidents and take reports. They are the ones staying logged on bullshit all night then going back in service when that call holding in their area is taken by another officer. I have seen this and have stepped in some asses over it, but I don't think that that post was a cop. I really think that Berry and his supporters are so perverted and devious that they are hary at work devising ways of screwing with people's heads in order to turn teh masses against this site. It is no secret that they are terrified of this site and the truths spilled here. They are probably the ones planting seed posts with crap like that, then shilling the comment by responding to it themselves.

Don't get hostile or emotional. Try to stay focused and keep the heat on the problem at hand. Berry, Schultz, Perry, Levy, Coward commanders, and the like. I know it's hard, with ignorant comments like the above, but they are only coming from those brought up by the likes of schultz and company. That's the way to look at it. Don't let these creeps get a foot in the door. We all agree on one thing The filthy few being discussed here need to be put out of jobs.

Progress is being made. Don't lose focus my friend.

I have always appreciated all of you dispatchers. I personally would not want to do your job. It is hard, and you are right, alot do not know what you have to deal with. Multitasking is an understatement. I sat up there with you all, and it can be chaos. There are those of us that know and appreciate what you do. Thank you, and keep up the great work.

There's another issue with regard to 911 calls that needs to be addressed. There must be a Spanish speaking operator to take 911 calls at all times.

I listened to a 911 recording and the Spanish speaking caller had to wait 1 minute and 43 seconds before an interpreter from what appeared to be a call service responded. Even then the translation was not 100% accurate.

This caller was able to wait the 1 minute and 43 seconds without further danger to herself. Not all Spanish speaking callers will have that time to wait to be attended. If another Spanish speaker who is actually in imminent danger calls and has to wait so he can be somewhat understood and he gets hurt further or killed because of the delay, APD is setting itself for another big lawsuit.

Hey Mister 5:57,
I have uniforms that have more time on than you. You are a real piece of work. You wouldn't last 5 minutes in a car with me and I would make sure that you came to none of my calls. It's scum like you that give officers a bad name if you are an officer. But I would say you are one of the dirtballs running Berry's campaign, trying to tarnish this forum. I have never heard a cop talk like that probably because they knew that I would embarrass them if they ran their mouths around me like that.

Hopefully you'll be the next public embarrassment for APD. Alot of karma coming around this year for backstabbers and idiots like you.

Maybe the next time some criminal is kicking the piss out of you because it's zero car and no cops for miles those citizens will look the other way. Right Jay, you piece of shit.

I listen to my police scanner ...a lot. Mostly because I live in a rural area and I want to know what's going on. I don't get cable up here and internet is sketchy in snow or rain or wind. A certain dispatcher is outstanding. She speaks clearly and even toned, she doesn't speak in questions like some do. I've never heard her stressed or angry or upset. She works days but they sure could use her at night. Some of them sound like chipmunks and one of them has a Scottish accent that I cannot even understand. BUT GREAT WORK TO ALL OUR DISPATCHERS & 911 operators!

Some of you have the attention span of a gold fish and the deductive reasoning of a child with a suppressed mental capacity.

Exactly where in any of the post did anyone say dispatchers or 911 operators were not appreciated or their jobs were easy?

I read every post. What I understand is APD should have a command level uniform presence assigned within their communications center. I find it curious that APD just launched a real time crime center from the 3rd floor of the main police station and it will be manned by both APD civilian employees and uniformed APD officers, yet, their dispatch center which is responsible for not only citizens but officer safety sensitive information, I.e. (officer contact numbers, knowledge of operational situations such as bait car operations, SWAT standby info, hazard file info, addresses and contact numbers of judges, firearm data and much more) and non of this information has a uniformed command level officer with direct oversight watching over it.

APD has a data and critical information data breech. In operational exposure assesments these are known as institutional weaknesses and venerabilities.

Everyone agrees APD dispatchers and 911 operators are awesome and do an awesome job, but, there is no reason for the largest dispatch center in the state with the greatest ammount of critical informational data to not have more direct control over the safeguarding and desimination of this information.

"Yvonne"...thank you for your hard work out there and thank you to the others. I have been at mgmt meeting and while Erica Wilson tends to speak down upon dispatchers in terms of their place in the food chain, she does take pride in being over there. However, there does need to be sworn oversight over there. I'm not going to expose why here on a public blog but you all know why. If they can staff lazy cops at the SmartPolice THING and have it staffed by a fat disgusting rat fraud burr-eat oh eating snake like Wilham, then it makes little sense why there isn't a lieutenant out there. And yeah, I signed for Paul Heh and donated money. NOTHING will change for the better if we don't get him elected if not on the ballot.
