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.

DISTRACTION TECHNIQUES; RESTART

Last Friday as much of the city waited for the verdict in the wrongful death trial of Ken Ellis III, RJ Berry and his cohorts, Perry, McCleskey and city attorney David Tourek moved Berry's re-election effort into full gear. You see, hours before the verdict which, on paper, awarded Mr. Ellis' son over $10,000,000 in damages (we say on paper because no sooner was the verdict read then Tourek and Perry moved to have the judgment set aside, a reversal of Judge Bacon's summary judgment ruling, and a new trial--all of which will delay justice due to the Ellis family) not so coincidentally APD's notorious chief announced his pending retirement. In the world of policing; this is referred to as a "distraction technique."

NOTE: Why was Schultz's Letter of Retirement dated March 13, 2013, but was not publicly announced till March 15, 2013? Why has Berry, Perry and Schultz refused to comment on it until Monday, March 18, 2013? This was all a distraction technique to shift the publics' attention away from the $10,000,000.00 verdict.

The premeditated announcement of Schultz's "retirement" dominated the newscasts. While the stations and paper covered the Ellis verdict, that story was overshadowed by Schultz's announcement. We heard about how long he's been chief. What's happened since he's been chief. What he's done since he's been chief all ad nauseum. But of course we didn't hear when the chief is retiring.

You see it's because he isn't. Or is not planning to. His letter is dated two days before it's release and it is sent not to Mayor Berry but to CAO Rob Perry. It also does not identify a date except that it may be after the election. But we all know what that means. IF Berry were to win re-election, we will no doubt hear about Schultz making the greatest personal sacrifice while stepping up to the call of duty and REMAINING as APD's chief of police.

The local paper saw fit to reflect on some cherry picked items noting the highlights and lowlights of Schultz's tenure in office. Let's flesh that out a bit shall we? In fact, let's just keep it to 2012...
•APOA survey identifies morale is at the worst it could be and that the mayor and chief have led the department to it's horrid state.

APOA president Sigala is arrested and booked and investigated for massive embezzlement and fraud yet the case mysteriously disappears while Schultz remains silent.

•Officer misconduct cases where Schultz was aware of the misconduct but failed to do anything prior to the news media breaking the story.

Chad Solis, Conner Rice, Ron Suran and the runaway taser and beating incidents.

Patrick Ficke; allegations of drunk driving in a police car and domestic abuse against a family member and other inappropriate behavior both on and off duty for over a year.

Several ranking members of APD whom were with Ficke drinking are now also under investigation.

Adam Casaus; allegations of speeding through a red light at 80+ MPH resulting in the death of a young lady and severely injuring her sister.


•IPRA violations and noncompliance resulting in ongoing lawsuits
•Lieutenant lawsuit by over four lieutenants who allege discrimination in the department promotional process
•Age discrimination lawsuit by dozens of APD officers after federal EEOC investigators found they had cause to sue.
•DCOP Banks lying under oath in sworn hearing.
•Violations of officer involved shooting SOPS (Peck, fleeing car, Parrish)

Releasing of evidence
 
Contaminating (spoilage of) evidence
Tainting witnesses
•Unlawful termination of employees and intimidation of employee favorable witnesses. All we need to say is John Doyle and Robert Woolever.

Unlawful use of public property
 
Friends of SWAT operating out of the Valley Area Command
Karen Salazar’s new private ARAPA organization operating out of the Main Police station

Personnel staffing Tiburon

TJ Wilham’s use of RTCC for private purposes
•Schultz seen socializing with disgraced nefarious PSD Darren White at MMA fights in ringside seats while technically the duty-chief and on call.
•Staffing problems

Limited recruits
Accelerated retirements
•Officer response times all time high
•High profile misconduct

Han (botched murder investigation) incident

Retired District Court Judge Murdoch

•SWAT losing federal certification
•Financial mismanagement
$160M for a department 15% smaller than it was 5 years ago

•Creation of a 4th deputy chief position

•Nepotism
Police cadets related to sworn personnel who are not qualified to be hired because of fitness disqualifications or criminal issues.

•Termination of T. Zane Reeves who is recognized as one of the country's leading employment hearing officers
•National recognition of the worst kind in media stories across the country:

Police shootings

Mary Han’s crime scene intentional contamination and bias
•Promotion system built on cronyism

Christman, Rowe, Comacho
•Deputy Chief’s assigned to bureaus they have no experience
 
Banks as FSB DCOP
•West Mesa Murder investigation dropped
 
•Manipulation of UCR data (past and current)
•Leaderless leadership style—nobody is in command
City lawyer David Tourek never present

CAO Perry never aware
Mayor Berry never knowing
Chief Schultz not knowing
•Property crime is up
•Berry’s and Schultz’s Our city, Our property initiative is a total failure

•nITE detectives unit fiasco
 
AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST: a full blown comprehensive federal investigation of APD by the US Department of Justice which now our Eyes tell us, includes a criminal investigation as well.
 
After all of this in just one year, what else can one say but it is time to take out the trash and restore this department to the model police department it was. We hope the door does hit Schultz on his way out; oh wait, that whole thing about retiring was just a distraction technique unless Berry loses.

But if there was any doubt that our local paper is nothing short of a propaganda piece for the Berry administration, one only has to look at Sunday's editorial by Michael Coleman of the Journal's "Washington Bureau." In the editorial he describes as "explosive" and "serious" allegations in the Assistant AG Perez's Civil Rights Division that certain conservative DOJ lawyers have their feelings hurt. In a review of 10,000 documents and interviews with over 80 people, an inspector from the Inspector General's office found troubling evidence of "liberal bias" and employee intimidation (READ it  HERE).

We just want to make sure we understand the standards the Journal adheres to: If you are an assistant attorney general of the United States and some employees have their feelings hurt the paper will do a Sunday Edition with an editorial scrutinizing you. But if you are a "major city" police chief and you leave a trail of ruined lives, death, cover-ups, financial mismanagement, confirmed patterns of age and racial discrimination, perjury, lies, deception, omission, and acts of abuse of power the paper will refrain from any direct criticism or editorials condemning your activities.

Is this right?

Eye,
Excellent! and now you are going to see the mother of all of schultz's distraction techniques. The one he's been waiting for all this time. An officer shot. Watch this evil motherfucker play at the heart strings with his phony baloney bullshit state of the union speech and fake tear drops at a press conference. Watch as this fraud acts like he gives a shit that an officer was shot. You are going to see the act of all acts pulling out all stops tomorrow. Watch as he tries to make his eyes well up through the pink makeup that he tries to hide his waddle turkey neck with. Schultz, Berry and Perry will be out with their suits on using this officer to garner sympathy for THEMSELVES! This is just how pathetic these creeps are. Read between every line of what these selfish bastards say. They will use the press confrence to play the biggest propaganda mind game possible on the citizens of Albuquerque. I can hear the bullshit lines now as they put their fake solemn faces on, and proclaim just how much they are behind the men and women who serve Albuquerque. It is your fault Schultz. You are the one with blood on your filthy fat little hands you coward. Quit now before you get an officer killed. When you go to prison, we will make sure to let general population know who you are. Scum bag.

Someone will ask fat sweaty Perry about the date of the faux resignation letter and attorney Tourette's (syndrome) will blurt out something in legalese double -speak that only he can understand, but yet everyone will head -bob in agreement because they're too embarrassed to question him and his jibberish. Ahhhh ....DOJ please just padlock the doors to this tainted hall of justice.....clean it out with Purell and Amoxicilin .....get rid of them ALL!

I love the headlines on todays ABQ Journal.

"Chief, Mayor to give details on APD's future"

Two words for you Mayor and Schultz. CONSENT DECREE! You will have minimal influence in regards to the "future of APD". Before DOJ, the future of APD was all yours, but you proved to be inept, the both of you. So now DOJ will clean up the spilled milk and it will be on THEIR conditions, not yours!

Look at this picture. Berry looks like he just farted and Ray looks like he is about to cry.

Schultz said our evidence room is viewed by other agencies as being perfect. Wow do you think that schultz lets them view surv video of a male and female going into vault with nothing in their hands. A female stealing pills or a 34 stealing ammo?

So if Shultz leaves, does that mean Levy goes to? She can't do anything without her bff!! And looking at that list she and shithead haven't done much but fuck things up!!

And to the stupid paper....really???? Perez is going to be confirmed as Secretary of Labor...yeah seems like he's really in a heap of trouble. Dumbasses...

Now that Berry and Schultz have held the, we don't know exactly when Ray is leaving press conference, I think the EYE should add a large counter to their website. It could be called the Albuquerque Police hostage crisis day XXX, Albuquerque Police held hostage by Ray Schultz.

You could start the ticker on Friday March 15, 2013 since that is when Ray said he is leaving.

Way to spin it KOAT first you've got the morning anchor saying how most 34s support RayRay The questionaire proved that's a lie Now you are quoting the Chief saying his son is deploying Go read any newspaper not the Journal The Chief says his son is deploying to Japan To call Japan a deployment is an insult to every parent of a soldier and every soldier who has done a real deployment, which means go to war

I WAS THERE I KNOW WHERE THE 34 WAS SHOT

Omg! Deployed to Japan!!Hahahaha! Now that's a statement you could describe as desperate spin. So obvious. City needs A clicker or ticker like the govt. has for the American Debt Clock. Or the Dow Jones ticker you could have one side that shows the money drain on the city due to Ray Schultz civil rights violations.

"CAO Perry never aware

the 34 was shot in the left butt cheek. period. why lie about it?

Anonymous said...

Because in Ray's eyes buttcheek shootings won't garner sympathy so he abandoned the officer. Ray submits his bullshit letter and it's in the news for a week, this officer gets shot and it's crickets. APD administration are scum bags.
