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.

Is it Internal Affair or Affairs?

As week two wraps up in the Levi Chavez murder trial, yet more sordid details of APD's internal affairs culture are confirmed. Defense Attorney David Serna and Prosecutor Brian McKay compelled APD Officer Nick Wheeler to admit and describe on the stand the intimate elements of his affair with former APD Officer Levi Chavez's wife and reported homicide victim Tera Chavez.
 
We're not going to dwell on Wheeler's actions as sad as they are. But what startles us most, this is not the first instance where an APD officer has had an affair with another officer's wife. We at the Eye have had dozens of reports where Officer X is sleeping with the spouse of Officer Y. And sometimes that spouse is themselves an officer.
 
And in some cases over the last few years, parties involved have tragically taken or attempted to take their own lives.

Think about that for a minute. In a culture where officers must trust each other with their lives, they don't dare risk leaving their wives or husbands alone with fellow officers.

 
And even worse, in the dozen or so cases of entanglements such as these, there has been a total absence of action taken either by the department or by almost all other officers.  Sometimes the failure to act is as bad as an actual act. An omission can be as damaging as a commission.
 
What does this say about APD? When a fellow officer is sleeping with another officer's spouse not only does Schultz NOT deal with this but officers don't step up and deal with it either. If the officers won't police themselves in such intimate personal matters such as this, it's even more doubtful they'll police themselves in other matters such as evidence, use of force, and misconduct.
 
The Eye also recently received a report which states not only was Schultz briefed on the need to put a lid on this activity but what the consequences of failing to act could likely be. From what we've read, this report from four years ago accurately predicted where APD was headed.
 
Our Eyes watching the Chavez murder trial tell us, more omissions and failures to act are forthcoming. And we are told they are much worse. With this Summer defined by this trial, and the disgusting internal affairs of APD playing out across the world, remember that the city's current Mayor HAD an opportunity to fix this mess.
 
But like so many others in APD, and just like APD's Chief Ray Schultz, RJ Berry failed to act resulting in consequences measured in blood, money, and tears.

On fire EYE! Schultz would be violation of his very own policy. Not that that matters since he violates it all the time anyways.

How sad, RIP Tera Chavez. You deserved MUCH better. ROT IN HELL, LEVI! I hope you are happy, Heather Hindi de Chavez de all of APD; FUCKEN SKANK!

Let's go back in time to the wonderful frat boy world of Gil Gallegos, Paul Chavez, Ed Sauer and Fowler Johnston. That is where this all started. The chief and his deputies were all having affairs. Don't forget, Schultz was around for a good part of it and did nothing. Why would he? Gallegos, Schultz, Chavez, Sauer and Johnston all felt that rank has it privledges, some of those were having affairs and ruining the lives of subordinates.

The only reason we are not seeing these clowns on the stand is because they all went to Kathy Levy and said settle the city lawsuit regarding Tera Chavez. Just go look at the civil case at NM Courts. Look at the 25 APD officers who were scheduled to be deposed. They are all there from the chief to deputy chiefs to captains. Shame on everyone of them for destroying a great police department.

But none of them care. They all have gravy train positions due to hush money and politics. Shame on our community for not making this public.

Here is a thought for Berry. He wants to boot the cars of men who patronize prostitutes, let him make public the names of APD and City Hall directors and supervisors who have (and are having) affairs. We already know all the names on that list, shame on all of them.

IS IT OR IS IT NOT TRUE THAT THE CHIEF GOT HIS LITTLE COHORT PREGNANT AND HI WIFE LEFT HIM. YES OR NO.

It would be one thing if this was an isolated incident of a truly bad apple named Levi Chavez. However, it appears that there is a trend of such behavior in APD.

I'm hoping currently employed cops might speak up and answer this question: what gives APD officers the notion that it's ok to act this way?

If you watch someone shit where they eat, and then you notice that such behavior is actually widespread throughout an organization, it's almost impossible to have any respect for that organization.

With as willing as APD cops are to fuck over John Q. Public in the name of watching out for each other, I'm actually pretty surprised by how many of them would so quickly stab each other in the back.

As I've said before, though, the public deserves the APD we have. We elected the biggest dipshit we could find to run the city, and then we sat back and did not a goddamned thing while APD became rotten and twisted under his watch.

I think 1:22 answered your question. APD officers act this way because the APD command staff has acted this way. You mirror what your bosses do. Makes me sick.

To the lawyer at 446...go fuck yourself because if you knew anything at All you'd know the answer to your question.

Watching the testimony of an officer admitting an affair with another officer's wife is disgusting. What is more disgusting is listening to the weasel testify that he lied to the woman that he loved her to get what he wanted. What we now have here is a person who's word is worthless and a coward who say's what people want to hear. I will also add dishonorable. This person should now seek honor and resign.

Add Fernando Aragon, Mike Gutierrez, Glenn St. Onge, Scott Lopez, and Eric Garcia to that list of supervisors showing disgusting behavior.

Levi never shda even been allowed to lateral over. His quitting Rio Rancho should've been cause enough. And I know for the talk at the academy they didn't want him. But guess who overuled them at the academy...you know who: RAY SCHULTZ

The above poster nailed it right. We fell hook line and sinker for the idiot Berry. And Schultz went even more outta control. Now ITS UP TO US TO FIX THIS FUCKEN MESS.

KUDOS TO YOU EYE FOR THIS MUCH NEEDED DISCUSSION! HOWEVER, I HAVE TO DISAGREE THAT THIS PROBLEM STARTED WITH THE BERRY/SHULTZ ADMINISTRATION. ALSO, THIS IS NOT ISOLATED TO LATERALS. I KNOW OF ABOUT THREE DOZEN OFFICERS OFF THE TOP OF MY HEAD WHO CHEATED ON THEIR SPOUSES WHO GRADUATED FROM THE APD ACADEMY. FRANKLY, I WEARY OF THAT FALSE STATEMENT. THIS HAS BEEN A CANCER WITHIN APD FOR DECADES AND NOT ONE PERSON HAS DONE A DARN THING ABOUT IT! FROM OFFICERS TO CHIEFS TO MAYORS AND EVERYONE IN BETWEEN, INFIDELITY HAS BEEN AN EPIDEMIC FOR FAR TOO LONG AND MOST HAVE TURNED A BLIND EYE TO IT!I AGREE WITH THE PREVIOUS POST. HOW CAN THE OFFICERS POLICE OTHERS IF THEY ARE NOT WILLING TO POLICE THEMSELVES? THE SOLUTION LIES WITH EACH OF US! WE MUST FIGHT TO RESTORE APD TO WHAT IT ONCE WAS! I TOO, WAS LIED TO AND CHEATED ON BY AN APD OFFICER. HE LIED ABOUT MY REPUTATION TO COVER HIS OWN AND I NEVER WANT ANOTHER PERSON TO GO THROUGH THE AGONY THAT I DID. ANYONE WHO ENGAGES IN SUCH BEHAVIOR SHOULD BE TERMINATED-PERIOD! I DON'T CARE IF IT IS SOMEONE IN RADIO, AN OFFICER, SGT, LT, COMMANDER, OR CHIEF. THEY SHOULD BE TERMINATED IMMEDIATELY! CHANGE STARTS NOW AND WITH US! REMEMBER, EVIL FLOURISHES WHEN GOOD MEN/WOMEN STAND BY AND DO NOTHING!

You people speak as if infidelity only occurs within apd. Look into any organization and you will find much of the same. My point is that infidelity is everywhere, not just within apd.

MickMagill said...

Well, my opinion might surprise (and perhaps incense) many here. I take honesty, integrity, and honor to be absolutes, but I do not automatically consider out-of-wedlock relationships to necessarily be a violation.

It is POSSIBLE their marriage follows different rules than most. For instance, I have a wife I love, honor, will be with until I die ( Malice Darling ) , AND a girlfriend/mistress/lover I am involved with ( Sinul Dani ) ; they are both cognizant and respectful of each other.

If a spouse of an officer makes a complaint to IA, that should trigger an integrity audit, but it is not IA's job to be "the marriage police". In fact, in most states adultery laws have either been stricken from the books, or merely ignored and not enforced.

In other words, there may be no law breaking here.

6:41,
I agree with you. Anyone having an affair should be investigated and told to stop their actions immediately. A day off should be given, if they do not stop they should be terminated.

The department will never do this because of the affairs taking place on 5th and 11th floor. For example, a former sergeant had a very public affair with a popular news anchor, Shultz knew, and so did Bill Anderson. No one did a thing to stop the affair. He should of been disciplined and she should of been removed from the anchor spot for a period of time. Two children and a female detective have been affected. Shultz, Berry, and general manager Bill Anderson could careless. Maybe because the anchor is politically connected to Berry. I guess if you give thousands of dollars to a campaign, anything will be over looked.

APD should also have a SOP in place to prevent affairs with anchors and reporters. Those women will do anything for a story. Rumor has it a handful of LT and Commanders are currently having affairs with a few reporters.

Yes affairs are in every organization, but APD can prevent this by an SOP change. Do you think they will? I highly doubt it! After all the last SOP change now allows someone to lie and not get fired. WOW lol

Didn't you know, if you have numerous affairs, Schultz measures your credibility by that number. Silly people no cops can be honest and loyal to their spouse. Isn't that right Schultz.

Deviate. You are a selfish c••t. How about your wife having a few side pieces? Wouldn't that be nice? How about knowing your wife has her cake and is EATING IT too!
How about you knowing that your wife is getting it bigger better and longer than your pathetic ass can give it to her but that she stays with you out of a sense of security and good conversation? Hahaha!
Better yet, how about your side piece getting the same. Now that would be funny.

You are absolutely right! If a spineless pussy like Schultz can be appointed chief, ANYTHING can happen with APD.

The prosecutor messed up by not putting EVERY single bimbo Levi shagged while married. Tera was a fool to ever marry the loser. Too bad she didn't see the writing on the wall when Levi was seen walking around high school with his arm around another chick. The entire thing is disgusting. I would like to know who the recruiter was that found Levi professional enough to become an APD officer in the first place, just the fact that he had been with another department should send up red flags. APD totally lowered its standards and took ANYBODY with a pulse. Kimd of like Levi's bimbos

APD has historically been involved with sexual misconducts within its blue code. Monica Werley/Francisco Aragon (look what happened there), Fowler Johnston/Richard Smith's Widow...and this cocksucker Levi Chavez/and his APD harem of worthless stamp tramps....These are the most recent, and believe me there are many many more!! Its common practice and the mindset of this worthless organization. Largest fucked up organization in the State. your mamas must be proud Shultz and Berry you Stupid dumb fucks!
