Click the link to our friends at “SpeedoftrustAbq” and listen for yourself as temporary chief (and we emphasize the word temporary) Allen Banks not only confirms his presence at the suspicious death scene of civil rights advocate Mary Han, but he denies his interference in the investigation.

While Banks confirms he was in a place he shouldn’t have been in, in the height of arrogance, he asserts he did nothing wrong. But the revelations offered by Banks get even more bizarre and sordid.
Mr. Banks confirms that he had a one-one conversation with a person who was arrested by then Officer Russell Perea for burglarizing Banks’ home. A one-one? Could Mr. Banks had said something intimidating and threatening to the person accused of breaking into his home? And did he just admit that he had this conversation while the person was handcuffed and contained in the back seat of a police car?
Our retired APD Eyes tell us that Mr. Banks may have just admitted to committing the crime of assault. And given the his position of authority Banks may have committed other felonious crimes.
And it gets worse.
In this audio, we hear Mr. Banks also confirm from his perspective what good police practices are and are not.
He states that it is ok for a department lieutenant to enter a suspicious death crime scene, tamper with evidence, and essentially run amok all while not documenting any of the actions in a police report.
Just like our Eyes tell us Allen Banks did at Ms. Han’s crime scene.
Mr. Banks would have us believe that it is ok for a senior figure in the state’s largest police department to enter a crime scene and not document their actions in a police report. Actions that Banks himself confirms would warrant discipline had a field officer committed such actions or inactions.
Our Eyes tell us that at one point, Mr. Banks was a field investigator in APD. As a field investigator, Mr. Banks is highly knowledgeable about how crime scenes are processed. For him to NOT comply with SOPs concerning his action is extremely disturbing and as a leading figure in the APD, truly models what can only be described as criminal behavior. In short, Banks cannot say he didn’t know what he was doing. His actions were the epitome of knowing and deliberate.
As Mr. Banks invites Mr. Bregman, maybe it’s time that somebody closely examines his history as a police officer. To enter the residence of a high profile adversary, to throw officers out, lock the door, and take pictures of her to show to your boss, Ray Schultz, that she is gone, is amongst the most repugnant actions we at the Eye have ever heard of an officer do in uniform.
It shows such a level of disrespect, it makes us wonder is there anything Mr. Banks would not do…..
