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

Levi Redux

Sadly before Tera Chavez was even memorialize, we at the Eye were calling the scene down in Los Lunas for what it was: A crime scene. Thanks to our many Eyes, we called it then (READ IT HERE) and we’re standing by it now. Except now we are almost six years later. Justice truly has been delayed in this matter. But not for lack of effort by the many people involved in trying to make things right for a young mother of two who was taken well before her time. And the nefarious efforts of crime ring that spans the state and involves many former and current office holders.


You see, much of all this could’ve been avoided if the people who ran (and still run) APD acted like professionals. A frequent lurker reminds us that “integrity is what you do when nobody is looking.” And sadly in the case of Levi Chavez, lots of people were looking. The problem is APD’s chief, Ray Schultz could’ve cared less. He failed to act then, and he continues to fail to act now. In fact, when confronted by the few who do not fear him, we are told he gets so perplexed his arrogance almost makes him implode.  What the frustration; simple arrogance from a simpleton.


When Levi collided his car into a child riding their bike in the foothills and then failed to report it, Schultz failed to fire him. When  Patrolmen Second Class Levi was taken to task for carrying a Kimber .45 instead of his issued Glock 17, Schultz did nothing (guess what gun was used to kill Tera Chavez; Levi Chavez issued Glock 17). When Levi lied about where he was on the night of October 20th while supposedly on patrol with Russell Perea but cannot be accounted for over two hours, Schultz did nothing. Each and every single offense mentioned here is a punishable by termination. Three strikes and your out? both Schultz and Chavez should have been terminated. Chavez should have been terminated for the multiple offenses listed and Schultz for incompetence.

As we all watch and listen to the horrors of the details of this murder during  a trial that will take us well into summer (you can hear it streaming live here) remember Levi Chavez never should’ve even been an APD officer in October 2007. He should’ve already been fired.

But even worse than those that fail to do the right thing when nobody is looking, APD’s Ray Schultz refuses to do the right thing even when in the spotlight.  Here again arrogance.

Schultz refuses to step down while he and his policies have decimated the department’s staffing and effectiveness and efficiency of APD.  Filled with toys and nepotistic underlings, APD has all but lost its credibility as an effective agency. And the details of Schultz’s mismanagement will be highly scrutinized during this trial. It is no surprise that our Eyes tell us there were personnel from DOJ in the gallery and out of state reporters as well.  Schultz's lack of true leadership will be the standard of training of what NOT to do as a chief of police.

Valencia County deputy district attorney Brian McKay began the trial by saying “A perfect murder is one that does not look like a murder.” That too could be said about the endless harm Schultz has perpetrated upon the employees and officers of APD and the citizens they serve.  When Schultz is gone we will all look back and say to ourselves, "Oh my gosh, he (Schultz) was terrible and ruin APD under our noses."

Schultz, Berry, and Perry have committed the perfect crime by making their actions appear as if they were "not criminal." But when you step back away from the trees, and see the larger picture, the mess we have here now is only the result of criminal activity.  This will be another story we will refer back to in the future that we called it JUST LIKE WE DID WITH LEVI CHAVEZ.

Justice demands that things be made right. The cesspool of intertwined relationships within APD's supervisors and subordinates contributed to a climate of looking away (a culture of corruption). Enough.

They will try and tear Jones a new one, why? Because he knows it was a murder. The VCSO is a joke of a department, they should have called NMSP.

I'm 800 miles away and can see right through the smoke and mirrors!!

One day, all involved with meet KARMA, and she is truly a BITCH!!

Unfortunately when the public sees or reads this in the lame stream media, due to the lack of real journalistic talent here, there is no connecting of the dots on Chaves 's past behavior and the fact that his chain of command allowed it to go on ...and on ..and now this horrific thing happened to poor Tera. perhaps if this raging bull had been properly reprimanded for prior bad acts Tera Chavez would still be alive today.

Very similar to the Mary Han case. The only difference is there are no suspects.

Did anyone else read about the Santiago murder trial today?

Mark Johnson did a polygraph on the daughter of a couple murdered several years ago. Big surprise his report was inconclusive. At some point in time APD needs to close it's polygraph unit. These people don't know what they are doing. All that needs to be done to proof this is a review of all polygraphs done by Johnson in the last 5 years. I would bet 90% of his reports are inconclusive. If Polygraph cannot make a clear determination then they should not be used. Or we should hire professional polygraphers who actually know what they are doing and who make a determination of truthfulness. Johnson doesn't know what he is doing so he takes the safe approach. Call everything inconclusive. Then he keeps his double dipping job and doesn't make waves. Time for this burnout to move on.

Fucken A enough. Fact Raymond Schultz got served at an aprtment and NOT his residence. Turn the RTCC on that shit. And don't think you haven't been seen solo at Smith's on Wyoming/Paseo u turkey necked fuck face.

Ray distributed a memo that said if you don't update your home address and your personal phone with the city you will be punished. Where do his records show he lives? And if it is not updated what will his punishment be?

Did you hear the deputy director of MVD on 770 KKOB this morning? Why is was none other than EX APD, EX Sandia Pueblo, Ex Attorney General etc Will Duran. When asked by Bob Clark his background for this high paying job Duran admitted that he had no background for it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Could it be he got this job because of his wife Vickie Duran (also Ex APD, Ex Attorney General)who is the current CFE (what is that) at the New Mexico Gaming commission.

Both of these people had affairs that lead to leaving the police department. Both have no experience for the positions they are currently in. Susanna has done a horrible job in state government. Nepotism is rampant.

Will anyone in the media pick this story up and start asking questions? Here is the start, Will Duran what do you have in your background that qualifies you to be deputy director at MVD? Were there actual qualified candidates who were rejected? Or was the fix in from the very beginning? And his wife works for NM Gaming,,,,,, I wonder is there anyone else from law enforcement doing a job they are not qualified for in the gaming department? Maybe someone at the Downs of Albuquerque? I will have to check Twitter!

Fickes wife came close to be the next Tera Chavez. Veronica should consider herself lucky she can take the stand and testify against Ficke. Tera does not have that opportunity.

Oh look, Olivas involved in yet another of Apd's more disgusting incidents.

Maybe this story and the fact that BLT & TE are still on the force will give Ho Donny Boy Harris a clue as to why APD isn't respected.

P.S. I commend APD officer Mitchell's actions. I pray he has a full recovery.

Someone FOIA the mtgs that the drunk driver, the disgraced APOA VP, and burreato are having for months now. A never ending parade of outsiders. When does actual work take place? They're too busy trying to find a place to land when DoJ finally learns all the shit they've done.

Its the Flip & Nick show! coming to you daily from the RTCC! Not really theyre coming to you live from a secret "meeting" somewhere or one of those infamous 3 hour lunches while us field guys get denied 61 cause of lack of manpower and are held over! Why the hell is Flip a brand new sergeant hiding inside anyways??? An orangatang could be taught to do his job and we wouldnt have to pay it!

Flip is a bigmouth coward and he is Schultz's pet chimp. Ray probably likes to look at him all day. Flip is one pathetic amusing punk. It's funny how the select few rat boys who fuck over everyone else get over like bandits. It would be really nice to see justice come for a change and federal charges landing on the hollow heads of these scum bags.

I would like to know if the 33% of the Time Crime Center gives information to the state and federal agencies. After everything that has come to light with our cell phone and internet usage being tracked, I don't think it is a leap to wonder if APD is giving the RTCC information to the NSA (or others).

Anonymous said...

The RTCC is a direct information pipeline to the state/federal run Fusion Center in Santa Fe.
Additionally, there is no security at the RTCC, I'm sure it will be just a matter of time before we hear of a blackmail scheme using information bought and paid for that originated from RTCC staff.
Absolute power, corrupts absolutely....$$$ talks & BS walks.....

The mess in Tera's murder case is indicative of the deep corruption in APD, as is the mess in my son Kerry Lewis' mishandled murder by APD and their partners, Brandenburg's staff. What is unacceptable is the laid back, laissez faire attitude of Federal agencies here that should be policing the police. Corruption continues because the chain is not cut !

There is deep corruption in APD, soon all of it will have to come out.
