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

Jul 25, 2013

Schultz and Fischer Sitting in a Berry-Tree,_______...

As our Eyes have been reporting ever since APD's current chief, Ray Schultz was served a lawsuit at an apartment located near Paseo and Wyoming NE our posters have been flooding us with tips about Mr. Schultz's...um...activities. It seems certain things may be breaking out and may explain his bizarre comments supporting public employees sleeping around. Schultz claims its "...nature at play."

We think we've figured it out. But here is a story we posted earlier this year...perhaps there's more than awards going on here. Perhaps there's something more than what meets the Eye...

Perhaps one of our readers (NOT BERRY) can connect the dots...

Schultz Defends His Incompetence By Blaming Others

“Property crime is up, the Department of Justice is here, APD is below 1,000 officers, there are only seven cadets in the current academy class, 911 response times are up, APD has lost over $30,000,000 of taxpayer dollars and counting in (police misconduct) lawsuits (since 2002,) and (a police union) survey says the officers don’t have faith in Chief Schultz” –Retired APD Sergeant Dan Klein

“It does raise the question of who was minding the store. There is a great benefit to spending time with others in the law enforcement community and attending conferences, but what did we really get for it? Was Chief Schultz out padding his résumé? Or was he bringing tangible benefits back to the city and the department?”—Retired APD Lieutenant Steve Tate

“The promotion of incompetent supervisors is the rule rather than the exception and numerous supervisors have their current position as a result of lawsuits. Leaders who supported their troops were punished by being passed over on promotions while the meek that followed orders without questions were rewarded.” –Retired Officer Chad Wilder

50% of the officers believe Schultz should be fired, 99% think Schultz is doing a poor job and the reason why morale is down.—APOA Survey

“Well there’s never been a story done on me before. I find it a little suspect. I’ve been chief for 8 years but that’s no problem.” “We are under investigation because of the force encounters in 2010. That’s it.”—(current) APD Chief Ray Schultz. Schultz then dismissed Klein’s criticisms, saying he had no direct knowledge of what it takes to be a police chief [and] that Tate was a “mid-manager” who has been gone from APD for several years and said he wasn’t qualified to assess the work of a police chief.
 
In Monday’s paper, Chief Schultz was confronted with his extensive travel and vacation time over the last couple years. In addition to the data in the report, in at least 16 trips covering over 51 days of travel, Schultz went hobnobbing with others to conferences and conventions. In his interview with the Journal’s Jeff Proctor, Schultz got very animated in his discussion regarding officer body cams, vendor discussions, and technology. For those that have interacted with Schultz, we all know how he gets very excited in talking about how technology will solve this or that. Except that we know ideas are worthless when they are not implemented or are implemented by people that have no skills involving law enforcement (for instance self-anointed “smart police” commander TJ Wilham).


But what is truly stunning, is Schultz’s continued denial of accepting any external criticism. As the above quotes indicate honest concerns relevant to APD current state of affairs, Schultz is more interested in discrediting his very critics. Yet despite all of Schultz’s endless posturing about how he’s implemented 95% of these ideas, or unique approaches, DOJ is very much here investigation a department that is in crisis. About 12 officers have graduated from APD’s new training “university” and there are less than 10 in the current academy. The date for the next academy is unknown. But while new recruits trickle in, officers retire as soon as possible and outpace new hires. A whole class of officers have now been determined to have been targets of discrimination. Crime is up. Costs are up. Lawsuit costs are up. Now we have a fatal accident involving a sergeant over the weekend that already smell bad given BCSO’s PIO putting their thumb on the scale comments about why the sergeant may have been running code (really so a person was killed while he was ATL’ng for a drunk driver…really?). Now even one of Schultz’s protected sergeants is in trouble with a domestic violence related arrest in Sandoval County.

Funny how no other department in the state, or region, seems to have so many daily problems. But Schultz will be pointing the finger at somebody else. But there’s one thing Schultz can’t deny, he knows how to use his time to his own benefit. In 2012, there were 240 working days. However of all those days, Schultz was on “work” out of town for 31 days and took 29 days of vacation. So out of 240 days of work, he spent 180 days, or 75% here in Albuquerque. So 1 out of every 4 days, he was somewhere else….And we all know that while Schultz boasts about working around the clock, there is a rotation of duty chiefs. So even Schultz gets to be off and out much more frequently than he states. And it seems he has a favorite companion….and a future trip already planned……..a revisit from last year’s show it seems:

And lastly, Lieutenant (Ret.) Steve Tate responded to Schultz's comments with his usual accuracy:

I would like to point out that this "critic&qu­ot; is concerned with the value of the trips and conferences during a time when APD is involved in turmoil. What do we have to show that improved based on these trips and conferences? They may have been a benefit to the city, but what was the return on that investment? This is a valid and deserved question since tax payer money was used . It is a true embarrassment to the entire police department and community that the DOJ is even in town looking into APD. Do the DOJ investigators happen to be qualified to assess the "work of a police chief" since they most likely were never police chiefs themselves. What a ridiculous response by Schultz to valid criticism. I find it very telling that Schultz's response is to claim that his critics are not qualified to assess his work because they never held the position or have been gone for a few years. This shows how disconnected Schultz is. Who knows what his definition is of "work of a police chief". What does that mean anyway? I would rather focus on his performance as a leader. If we do this, then everyone in the APD, city and entire community is more than qualified to assess his performance. Let's ask if the department is in better shape during his tenure and see what the facts show. Let's ask about department morale......and about community relationships. A real leader would be very concerned with morale since it will ultimately impact how the department is viewed by the community. If you treat your department employees the right way, then you can expect them to treat the community the same way. Is it a coincidence that department morale is at an all time crisis level low and at the same time the DOJ has seen fit to come to Albuquerque? Successful organizational leaders understand this relationship with employee and customer (community) satisfaction and put in place initiatives to ensure they can impact this relationship in a positive and effective way. I find it interesting that Schultz has never proactively created an anonymous employees satisfaction survey to gain insight into department morale. The police union did their own survey and when the overwhelming numbers showed they had no faith in Schultz, what was his response? He attacked the critics just like he did in this case. A real leader would have been very concerned and taken steps to work on that relationship internally. A real leader would not blame everything and everyone else as Schultz had done for his almost 8 year tenure as chief. However, Schultz isn't an effective leader and that is what APD needs now....a leader running APD............­not someone just doing the "work of a police chief". Schultz should have stepped down years ago and when he didn't, Mayor Berry should have removed him. APD and the entire community has suffered because of Schultz's ineffective and plain lack of leadership. Don't take my word for it.....especial­ly since I've been gone for 6 years.....ask anyone currently with APD or that has recently left and see what they tell you.....you will be shocked.

Can that possibly be the "Love Nest" he has set up with Kathy Levy?

Not for nothin', but i met a retired BCSO employee, and at the mention of APD boy did I get to see what disgusted looks like...ditto the young lady whose Mother and Father were in LE in California(he a chief, she a higher-up)their entire careers. The sneer with which the daughter barked "APD!" was pretty snarly, indeed! It seems that cops who pride themselves on their job, their credibility, and their essential worth to the community, those guys have jusy below zero time for the APD...You hear that APPD guys? Real cops hate you, too! No great wonder you're not getting any new help come to sign up....

Sorry, for the left overs boys.
As for his 'Nature at Play' remarks; That's the culture with this guy.He and Darren were big on that concept back in the DWI Unit days. "Pull 'em over and pull down their panties" was their motto.
Berry; Mr.'Small fruit package' get rid of Schultz or we'll get rid of you on election day. Viva Heh, Viva Dinelli.

Shame on Berry for not putting a stop to Schultz. Shame on Schultz for his actions that have caused this.

APD is in the midst of a civil war. Command staff versus officers. God help the city, this stupidity is going to rip the police department to pieces.

Schultz vindictivly goes after Dawn Roberto and ruins the career of a 15 year veteran officer.

The Eye posts that Schultz is having an affair with Fischer, probably ending both marriages.

God dammit APD and Albuquerque looks stupid to the rest of the country. Albuquerque is a mess and Berry and Schultz own this.

My town is better than what is going on and you bet your ass I will be voting against Berry on October 9. He is going to be held accountable for this civil war at APD.

Look at this gem in today's paper:


MAYOR RICHARD Berry deserves proper recognition and respect for his courageous decision to appoint Deputy Chief Allen Banks to interim chief of the Albuquerque Police Department.

This appointment sends a positive message to all citizens of Albuquerque that Berry is inclusive and embraces diversity.

Banks is well qualified, intelligent, culturally sensitive and has exceptional leadership skills. He has served as acting police chief during the absence of Chief Ray Schultz and has the initial support from Stephanie Lopez, president of the APD police union.

Banks is a local product and has the respect of various representatives from different communities. He is and will continue to be a positive role model for youths of color and others. His achievements through the ranks of APD are indicative of his commitment and determination to protect and serve the citizens of Albuquerque.

At this time, I ask the mayor to officially appoint Banks to police chief as soon as he possibly can. Why not save $25,000 of the taxpayer’s money?

Lastly, for those who do not know, Banks is African American.

@7/26; 10:58 pm: Good points, excellent description, but you barely scratched the surface. This demented gargoyl once addressed on of my comments here on the Eye with "You post as "anonymous" because you are a fucking pussy!" And that is a small representation of her charming personality. I'll bet that her parents are so proud of their little girl. It isn't common for two people to get together and conceive a tooth gnashing big mouthed demon. I know nothing about her SGT husband, but I'll also bet that each and every day with her must a visit to hell for him.

Adam & Eve. nature at Play. Ray and Karen, nature at Play.
I be at City hall for 25 years and Nature at play is in full force in the hallway nooks and cranies, elevators, stairwells, storage rooms. Coffee breaks/ Tang breaks. oral exams and all . Everyone participates. The ninth and eleventh floor is one giant Garden of Eden.
The only one not gettin any is TJ; who would want to be harpooned by that walrus? oh yeah, RJ doesn't participate or know nothin about any of it. wink, wink

Anonymous said...

Lets get this clear once and for all. for the umpteenth time. Schultz is still here because that's what RJ is ordered to do. Darren and McCleskey run Albuquerque not RJ. They made him mayor in title only. He has no clue. Empty suit, cardboard cut out behind the desk. Peter principal has never been more evident.
That's the price for being elected. They will do the same again, hence the reason for the $1 million they will raise to keep a puppet in power.Do we now get it?

Readers, do not place too much stock in the presently on-going DOJ "investigation". What will come of it is a few lower level officers (who probably even aren't on the force any longer) will be getting petty lawsuits filed against them. The DOJ will not go after the true perpetrators of the "crimes". You see, the DOJ is populated by political hacks who will only do enough to satisfy the community activists and then they will depart, saying, "Look at what we the FEDS did...we went after those bad cops and filed blank number of lawsuits!" (A mere handful of lawsuits I'll wager.) The Department of "Justice" is as corrupt as the police force's administration they are investigating. Remember, "birds of a feather will cover for each other" (colloquialism modified for effect). Albuquerque, if you want the APD cleaned up, the voters will have to do it. Get rid of Berry, put a mayor in place with integrity. Then vote out your governor as she rules with a corrupt hand as well. Oh, by the way, I am a republican and I am ashamed that Berry and Martinez represent the GOP!

(1)Some people cannot lie without it showing on their faces. Schultz is one of those, as his recent interviews so clearly show.

(2)Schultz and White will allow shootings and/or ruining innocent persons' reputations and lives (viz. SWC "bust"} At the same time they allow several APD officers to engage in whatever behaviour they desire--including affairs, prostitution, harassment, abusing citizens, to name a few,

(3) Yes, all Berry has to do is look and act like a nice guy...and he may be...but he is a puppet front man for those who really have the power such as Darren White, Susana M, J. McClesky and others with the pull and $$$$.

(4) Surely, if the DOJ listens to the abused citizens of ABQ, they will find major problems from the mayor and chief through several ranking officers to the lowest level APD employee...and act appropriately.

It is so weird how Schultz allows adultery in his police department but went after Judge Murdoch for his alleged action with single women. But lets’ see here, Chief Schultz is married and this Fishy woman is married but that is okay because Schultz approves of adultery.

Only under Mayor Berry’s watch. Vote out all of the bad people.
