Levi Chavez GUILTY of Corruption and Deciept and ...

With the Levi Chavez trial and verdict now behind us, we have to ask ourselves, are we really here?

After skipping out on his financial obligations to the Rio Rancho police department, Albuquerque Aviation police hired Chavez. Despite being sued by the city of Rio Rancho for reimbursement for his police certification costs, Schultz hires Chavez even after strong arguments by APD Academy personnel objecting to his hiring. While still on probationary period Chavez is caught lying to supervisors on at least two occasions including one incident when he was driving his police car colliding into a child on a bike. Chavez reportedly failed to notify anybody until the Foothills Area Commander, Levi Anaya, hauls him on the carpet. Chavez of course denies the incident. This individual treats the department as his own private brothel, and while he runs amok, nobody does anything or says anything. And really, these female cops, Regina Sanchez, Heather whatever her name is, and SRO officer horrible Debra Romero have the audacity to say “I didn’t know…” Nice to know that Heather and Regina are still “serving” the public.

Then, in what must be the greatest example of milking a call since former officer Matt Kindle’s lunch date, Levi Chavez and his buddy Russell Perea take over four hours to book a misdemeanor DV offender, write a report, and tag a belt tape into evidence. Except of course there’s no record of Chavez doing anything. Some suspect it was during this time that Tera Chavez died. Those in the Levi Chavez camp would have us believe that Tera did this to herself in what would be the most unbelievably awkward way to fire a gun on oneself. Folks, let's call it like it is; women do not shoot themselves in the face or head.  It is a vanity issue, they still want to look good even after they pass.  The pain is in their heart; women most commonly shoot themselves in the chest or take pills. Notwithstanding, others would have us believe she did it to herself.

Either way, we at the Eye are not going to believe supporters of an individual known to have lied over and over and over. An individual who lied to his wife, girlfriends 1-5, his coworkers, his friends, his supervisors or his God. An individual who has lied from day one as an officer and lies like he breathes.

And we are not going to believe Ray Schultz either, the primary contributing factor to this mess, when he has been caught lying to his officers, his wife, his family, his friends, and worst of all, the public he serves. Remember Schultz when you said to one of our Eyes when asked why he hadn’t terminated Chavez in 2009, “There’s nothing I can do until he’s adjudicated in court.”
Chavez has received more breaks than is statistically possible. How is it his truck, supposedly “stolen” is also one which had its VIN processed by another confirmed liar, former officer and, surprise, APOA president Pete Dwyer?

Funny how all these people find cover from certain others but when it comes to stepping up and doing the right thing and showing INTEGRITY there’s nothing but the sound of crickets in the background. While we realize many of APD’s current officers probably don’t even know the details of this mess since it happened almost six years ago, you should know that from Good Morning America to the Washington Post, APD is synonymous with the worst of the worst departments because you will NOT POLICE YOURSELF. You cheat on each other. You steal from each other. You tolerate dishonor.

As a  police department you are not modeling what you would want to see from the best of your community. You are modeling the worst. By failing to speak up and stand together to say “enough” you endorse what is misconduct at best, and criminal offenses at worst.

We at the Eye express our condolences to the Cordova family. We hope that you truly find justice in your beloved Tera’s taking. We know that it will only be a matter of time before nature rebalances this mess. We are sorry the prosecutors failed you. But what do you expect when they are led by a District Attorney known to be intoxicated in the middle of the day after leaving a certain law office downtown. Hmmm, gee which office could that be?

Well said, Eye. APD is nothing more than mafioso with badges to back their guns. Corrupt and dirty from the top (Schultz) and now with OJ Chavez, right down to the bottom.

FAPD, FMB and FABQ. What a hellhole. Get out while you still can.

Schultz protected Chavez for so long I'm sure he's got a nice spott in the RTCC for him already. There he can watch videos of himself and show all the other losers how it's done. Fucking Mickey mouse dumbass department. From this fiasco to MxDermitt shooting her own officer can it really get any worse?byusopub1905

How is it, there is a dead female, affairs, APD officers destroying blood and the one officer who was used, gets fired. Don't anyone dare say that Russ lied. If you don't think having an affair is lieing you could be Commander material. APD showed no professional standards in their internal investigation. Wheeler you are included.

I pray Mr. Cordova finds it in his heart and soul to open fire on Mr. Chavez, If no one else has the BB's maybe he does.

Problem solved!!

Wow, wow.......!!! NM is now definitely a State in which you hire a POS Police Officer & he get's away with MURDER!!!!

All you good Officers get out of there while & if you can! It will take a lifetime to rebuild APD to what it once was!

Levi strutted out of the courthouse like a king barnyard roster. Watch out Heather he is on the prowl. Oh I forgot you were on the prowl (married) when you started having sex with him.

Maybe they will find swingers to pray their rosaries with.

What in the hell has happened to APD under Schultz?

Eye, why don't you ever mention the crowd of APD cops who went and trampled all over the crime scene in Los Lunas (out of their jurisdiction) anymore? Is this just more blue wall of silence bullshit, protecting your buddies on the force?

Levi Chavez on the stand (hand covering face; acted out tears; smiles not matching his emotions) and out of the courthouse (smug comments), riddles with guilt. Instead of being grateful he instead continues to act as if he had nothing to with Tera's death. Comments like "come on bring it on (referring to civil suit) and I told you guys," shows a guy with NO remorse and a poster child for APD. Dumb officer who was helped by dumber officers, covered up by the department and led by a mafioso attorney. Makes for a great story...something tells me we haven't seen the end to Levi's criminal behavior.

Maybe Darcy McDermitt can show Levi how to operate a pistol without dropping the magazine since she's so skilled at firing her weapon. Fuckin joke. Hides all her career inside then as a rookie green field sergeant she almost kills a fellow 34. Cant make this shit up. From Tim Lopez fighting with other 34s to this shit. We are a joke.

APD is now hands down, the biggest fucking joke in the state and tops in the nation for major fuck ups. The good officers should leave while you can before you get stains on yourself. The uniform is stained and probably not ever repaired now. Society will see us all as worthless, which is true now. Darcy (FINGER OFF THE TRIGGER until your sure of your target and willing to destroy it) but you never did know your range rules did you? Most 34's don't nor do they care to. Maybe this shooting is this the beginning of another conspiracy. Rest in living HELL Levi Chavez, you fooled no one!!

Levi was so nervous before the verdict was read if you listen close you can hear his ass suck up the air off the seat as he stood up. This whole thing is disgusting and photos of him holding a rosary gives all Catholics a bad name. He knows what he did and only he will have to answer ONE DAY that is if he makes it in front of the one he worships. may God bless the Cordova family and may Tera rest in peace.

He turns his cell off for hours so he wouldn't be bothered by her, but then stops by when she hadn't been heard from... HMMMM.... He gets on the stand and attempts to cry like the bi**h that he is. The prosecutor should have kept him on the stand a hell of alot longer then an hour. That was the downfall and that crap about allowing him to keep saying MY JURY MY JURY.... The judge was pretty weak as well...

OMG... I am so f#&!king fed-up with this "there are some good cops at APD" bullshit. Really? Where?? Who stands up to Schultz? Who says all the whoring is wrong? Who says PUBLICLY the department is a friggin' disaster? No one. You're all willing to cut corners and cut deals if it benefits you. But guess what. The public has figured it out. That's why no one in this city respects APD. That's why they hate your collective guts and see you for the jack-booted, law-breaking, whoring thugs that you are. Levi?? Ha! He's just the tip of the APD iceberg.

Great post Eye! This whole case involving Levi Chavez has been a joke from the beginning! You resurrected a question that needs to be addressed. What is the status of the auto theft/insurance fraud case against Levi Chavez, Pete Dwyer and others? Anyone know???? When I saw the news about Levi wanting his certification back I laughed! Maybe Levi and Pete can start their own security company. They can "dazzle" more dumb women to sleep with them with their flashy uniforms and sell VIN plates on the side. What an idea!

Anonymous said...

Russ Perea knows what happened and covered for Levi. Didn't Perea testify that Levi never left his side while they were riding together? If that is true then why did cellphone records say different. Why would either of them have to call each other if they were standing next to each other?

The hardworking professional officers know who they are and will continue to make a difference. Lets just hope the citizens don't lump us all together with that shit stain...

So so sad...I went to school with Levi. How far he's fallen. But my God is an awesome God and Levi will be harshly judged when the time comes. I pray for the Cordovas and for Tera's children. God bless them and I hope they can find peace in the days and years to come. RIP Tera <3

Every department in APD is about quantity and not quality. The blame starts with Schultz and goes down to the lazy stupid worthless lying supervisors that are running the departments. Everything about APD is a joke.

Well this whole case is like peeling an onion.
Levi's now wife Heather - step daughter of Kari Brandenburg (DA - Bern. Cty.)
Lemuel Martinez (DA - Val. Cty. - friend of Kari's)
Martinez also frequents Sanchez Mowrer firm (drinking buddies, that would be Ray Sanchez, brother of Senator Michael Sanchez, and Mowrer, APD Union lawyer); Michael Sanchez - friend and past partner of Judge George Eichwald.
Do you see the mess? That's the political side, now for Lunatic Levi - the guy has a split personality. He made you feel sorry for him when Serna was asking him questions, then he turned like a viper when McKay asked questions, that he was "talking to his jury." Wow even after the verdict of not guilty and he acted like a complete ASS on camera.
The whole corruption that exists at APD, Political corruption and Levi Chavez are al a lethal mix. Governor Martinez needs to be made aware of this mess. What would really be nice would be if New Mexico brought back the death penalty like Texas, then assholes would learn to do things the right way, and divorce or separate instead of kill their spouse and get away with murder. Instead of the jury fearing of sending an innocent man to prison, we must worry as a society of a guilty man roaming free and possibly hurting another innocent victim.

Enough is Enough!!!

And if any of us sit on that jury we will set him free as well!

Amen to that! If someone killed a cop they would get the death penalty if it was still in law!

Mayor Berry,
Thank you for making Alan Banks chief of APD. If you thought you have seen incompetence, just wait. It is going to be humorous watching things collapse all around you mindless idiots and liars. Just wait until the beans spill. And yes they are going to spill. We have been waiting for just this exact mistake.

Anonymous said...

I think what is sad about this whole Levi Chavez getting acquitted was justice was not served. So Levi was found not guilty of 1st degree murder. What Levi is guilty of is mentally abusing his wife, lying, cheating and deceiving. From the beginning of the trial we have learned that this pathetic excuse for a man did not care about anyone but himself. Which is obvious because he had so many mistresses? Levi was living a double life. How could he keep up with all of his lies? We will never know the honest to God truth. We all can speculate that he did it. We all know that Justice was not served. I can tell you one thing that this will come back to him and bite him in the ass some day.
I feel bad for his children, having to be raised by this man that has no morals or values. He can say what ever he wants but what Levi did to Tera was mental abuse. He is guilty of that. Levi is a complete sociopath. He will back to the same cycle doing what he does best Lie, cheat, deceive and abuse innocent people. Yes he is a cocky ass bastard. I hope he gets what he deserves some day.
Definition of a sociopath:
A sociopath is mainly identified by there being something very wrong with a person's conscious. They either 1) have a conscious with "holes" in it, 2)they don't seem to have one at all or 3) they are able to completely neutralize their sense of conscious into a perspective that they aren't doing anything wrong.
One thing is for sure: Sociopaths only care about themselves and only see themselves as being "real" or truly human. Everybody and everything outside of themselves are twisted in their mind into mere objects to be used to achieve personal fulfillment.
A sociopath often believes that they are doing nothing wrong or doing something greatly good, due to their egocentricity and grandiose sense of self-worth. They will cold-bloodedly take what they want and do as they please at any expense of anyone in their lives; predators who satisfy their lust for power and control through superficial charm, manipulation, intimidation, and violence.
Sociopath defines Levi perfectly.

If it weren't for the Albuquerque Eye, then I doubt the DA would have proceeded with a Grand Jury in April 2011. The constant media attention made the case reopen. If the Police arriving at the scene had done an investigation, then more photos would have been taken and Levi's hands tested for gun powder. That's why tax payers got to shell out to the Cordova family almost 300,000. Levi Chavez didn't get away with his callous behavior toward his wife. Levi lost his job, his corrupt family members in Santa Rosa lost their jobs. The past six years with good reason was probably a hell for Levi. Heather will probably end up divorcing Levi and decide to distance herself from him. Levi won't win the civil case the majority opinion seems to be he was guilty but the standard of proof wasn't there in a criminal trial. Levi will probably have his wages garnished. Whatever job Levi does get he will most likely her that talk about him the rest of his life. Levi can never get any City, State or Federal job again. Levi cost too much to hire. I hope that this sends a message to care to all those men and women that murdering and covering it up won't make your life easier, but forever more difficult.

Well makes sence that all these people are intertwined. As for Senetor Micheal Sanchez he is a looser, while employed with the City he sexually harrased every female that walked pasted him.

Too bad juvie records are sealed, if they werent Levi Chavez never would have become a cop. In high school he beat his girl friend severly and then pulled a gun on her father.There was a order of protection filed on him which made his family have to change his school. Thats how he came into Teras world. Time to change some laws to prevent people like him from working the system.

I first heard of this case a few months ago from a friend i work with out of state. This friend is from Santa Rosa, NM;she grew up there and knows all of Levi's family including uncles, grandparents...the rest is history. I became intrigued with the case to the point of getting updates on my cell phone. After the verdict I cancelled my vacation plans to Albuquerque this summer. I had enjoyed my visits there in the past but couldn't bring myself or my family to visit such a dishonest, hate filled, city. I will never ever visit there again.
My only regret was not purchasing cancellation insurance at The Pyramid...I was out a lot of cash.

People, the DA in this case is Lemuel Martinez, Valencia and Sandoval Counties. Chavez murdered his lovely wife in Valencia county. Martinez is more concerned with being friends with the cops than in justice. He failed miserably again. Please remember this when re election time comes around. I am also a surrvivor of homicide and our DA's need to take a hard stand against these monsters. I say if you want to get away with murder, come to N.M.Let's make some decisions about our elected DA's. Lemual Martinez messed up and needs to go!

Levi Chavez is a scum-bag. Poor excuse for a human being and I pray his kids look up the case and turn on him and go looking for their maternal grandparents. Afterall, that's the reason they are growing up without the love and guidance of a REAL mother and not just a replacement mother!!

Brandenburg has no idea how to manage an office she n many others are a joke in that office. Sad!!!

Buck Naked said...

From the beginning of this trial I knew that Levi would walk free, not because I THOUGHT HE WAS INNOCENT BUT BECAUSE NM overwhelmingly voted in the biggest POS ever for POTUS. So I knew if he were going to be Judged by a jury of his peers they were going to be too gutless to find him guilty. Rather be safe than sorry.
