Unforthcoming and Truth Distortion Revealed: Banks and Perea

"Grunt"                  "You make my head hurt"         "Lies!!!"

Faced with having to reinstate Russell Perea as a police officer with all back pay, benefits, seniority, and attorney’s fees, the City of Albuquerque and APD’s interim chief Allen Banks are spinning in crisis mode.  And there is no better evidence of this than City of Albuquerque attorney David Tourek’s statement on the matter:

“We’re evaluating this problematic ruling from the court that is forcing us to take back a Police Officer that we felt we had sufficient grounds to terminate. We’ll be reviewing Judge Bacon’s decision and exploring all appellate, administrative, and policy options that are available.”

We know the city lives in backwards land.

How else do you explain giving the city’s CAO a 22% raise (equal to $33,0000) when his police department has cost tax payers over $55,000,000 in judgments?

Or promoting a deputy chief to the rank of chief when he’s been caught lying in public, lying under oath, tampering with crime scenes, covering up crimes, violates his own officer’s civil rights, and can hardly speak a single sentence with proper grammar?

Or describing a city as operating efficiently when, duh, there are 30% fewer officers and morale is in the tank amongst all NON MANAGEMENT personnel?

Or maintaining the health and safety of fire department personnel when toxic fumes continue to bleed into several fire stations despite the public reporting of these issues?

Or in this case, claiming that not only was the hearing officer wrong, but the personnel board, and District Court Judge Nash, and District Court Judge Bacon. In fact, Judge Bacon wasn’t just wrong according to Tourek, but it was problematic.

Well, let’s put Tourek’s statement in the context of things. 

•Russell Perea was the target of an IA investigation shortly after Levi Chavez was indicted for  
  murdering his wife and interviewed by Commander Doug West on 5/10/11.
•7/18/11 DCOP Allen Banks adopts and supports the termination of Perea for untruthfulness.
•7/28/11 the Albuquerque Journal quotes Ray Schultz as saying an officer in connection with
  Levi Chavez will be fired.
•7/29/11 Russell Perea is notified by APD that he will be fired.
•8/8/11 DCOP Feist holds Perea’s Laudermill hearing and confirms Perea will be fired.
•8/15/11 Perea receives written notice of his termination signed by Feist.
•12/9/11 Perea appeals the termination through the city’s administrative hearing office and Dr. Zane Reeves is randomly selected as the hearing officer. Hearing to start on 12/9.
•12/29/11 the 12/9 hearing reconvenes because the city failed to provide all internal affairs documents to Perea. The hearing is rescheduled for 1/27/12.
•1/27/12 hearing concludes.
•2/6/12 Dr. Reeves issues his recommendation finding the city did not have just cause to terminate Perea because the city failed to demonstrate wrongdoing by Perea.
•2/13/12 City attorneys contact Dr. Reeves in private and ask that he recuse himself from the current case and not appear before the April meeting of the Personnel Board as required.
•3/5/12 City attorney and CAO ask the Personnel Board to remove Dr. Reeves
•4/11/12 the Personnel Board denies the city’s effort to remove Dr. Reeves and unanimously votes to accept Dr. Reeves’ recommendation and orders the city to reinstate Perea
•4/20/12 city attorneys appeal the Personnel Board’s decision to district court and seek a restraining order against Dr. Reeves from hearing other scheduled personnel hearings.
•5/1/12 District Court Judge Nash hears arguments and denies the city’s motions from the bench.
•5/1/12 Rob Perry terminates Dr. Reeves’s contract with the city by fax.

And of course Tourek/Perry resist the order of their own personnel board. Think about that for a minute. Doesn't this mean that for every hearing officer's recommendation that the city DID have justification to terminate an employee and the board adopted that recommendation gets to be reinstated if Tourek/Perry get their way?!?!?

But the secret to decoding the idiocy of the Perry/Tourek actions is not just looking at the obvious. But in looking at what isn’t being said. Paralleling Perea's case is another high profile matter:

•11/17/11 APD officer Rob Woolever receives notice of termination and files his appeal
•2/1/12 Woolever receives notice that his personnel hearing is scheduled for 4/18/12
•2/1/12 Dr. ZANE REEVES randomly selected as the hearing officer in the Woolever matter
•5/11/12 Woolever receives notice that his hearing is rescheduled to 7/20/12 and Bingham is the hearing officer.

These are things that not only make one go hmmmmmm, but they make one ill. 

Up until 2/1/12, Dr. Reeves had been a contract employee with the city of Albuquerque as a hearing officer for decades. And now Tourek/Perry would have us believe that after one decision he is biased and prejudiced when over 75% of his decisions were in favor of the city? Nah, it’s only too obvious. This isn't about Perea at all, it's about Doyle and Woolever.

Tourek/Perry/Schultz saw the writing on the wall. They knew that even though they had bungled up the investigation and termination of Perea they had done even worse with the matter involving officers Rob Woolever and John Doyle. They knew that if those cases were going to be held, and with Woolever’s scheduled to occur on 4/18/12 their lies and illegal actions were going to be disclosed as well.

So they did what bullies do, they tried to get others to fight their fight. In this case, first they went to the personnel board. When the board said no, they went to court. When the judge said no, only then did they do what they could’ve done all along and directly fire Dr. Reeves.

Except now, the proverbial chickens are coming home. Judge Bacon found Tourek/Perry’s actions not just dumb but unfounded. Dr. Reeves’s decision was found to be the correct one even after intense judicial scrutiny. And Tourek/Perry have failed. Again…… Our Eyes tell us, Mr. Doyle’s case is in district court where once again the actions of the city will be subject to intense judicial scrutiny. And we are told the lies and illegal actions by city personnel involved in this matter defy belief.

Remember the city’s argument to fire Perea was that he was unforthcoming in correcting facts asked of him by West. Funny, with current officer Brett Lampiris-Tremba not only did you have somebody who had blatantly lied to supervisors but falsified calendar records.

And there is no greater truth-distortionist than the grand poo-bah of unforthcoming actions than APD’s own Allen Banks. Perhaps Mr. Banks would like to go under oath and answer some very direct questions about his nefarious on and off duty activities?

Doyle and Woolever were cast away by APD as an offering to keep DOJ investigators from coming in. Schultz/Banks thought by making a huge publicity stunt it would send a message to DOJ that APD polices itself and doesn't need review by Washington. But like everything else Schultz has touched, this plan also failed but at the expense of two decent officers.

But don't take our word for it, hear what happened directly from an interview journalist Peter St. Cyr did with Dr. Reeves just last week:

Professional Truth Distortionist
Perhaps Banks, Tourek, or Perry would like to go on record and challenge these details? What's that? Crickets? Nah, we thought so....

Everything comes back to Woolever and Doyle doesn't it? I'm convinced that one of those guys is running this site, because if the Mayor sneezes, it turns into a discussion about these two bad cops. Here's a suggestion for you Eye, leave Albuquerque. We do things different out here, we police different, govern different, and live different. You clearly don't get how New Mexicans do things. Of course Perea is going to get favorable treatment over Doyle or Woolever...can you read and pronounce last names? We look after our own. The EYE needs to leave New Mexico...maybe Idaho would be a better place for you to live.

Considering those two officers only had about 4 years with the city, and the eye has been around since around 2006, I would love to know how they would have gotten that much drag, intel and connections to run this site. Yea, things are done differently. It's good that you admit that. It is the most corrupt city in the country where backstabbing lying and criminal behavior rules among politicians and heads of the largest police department in the state. Ryan Buckner falsified a police report in that case and IA Sgt. Jason Peck intimidated a witness by trying to tell an officer what to say before an interview under the threat that stating the truth would get them charged. If he denies that, it's going to get problematic for the city because from what I've heard the proof of that conduct is there.

The problem here, is that Schultz and all of the others involved in that case deviated drastically from their past history. Paiz, Schultz, Buckner, Levy, and Peck, all grossly lied during that investigation. They not only deviated, but they did things so egregious that it defies explanation, then all of them disappeared. It is funny how after those officers got thrown under the bus crap snowballed.

Maybe the mayor should stop sneezing and blowing the breadcrumb trail all over the place, then you would see how the dots are connected to obstructing the DOJ.

It must be either your conscience or you are stirring the pot, because I read this site, and haven't seen these officers brought up here in a long time.

Your post is pretty sad. That was the mindset of the 1950's South and it has no place here today. What's more sad is that you are probably in a position that you shouldn't be.

Let's look at this shall we:

"We do things differently here":
You sure as hell do.
You shoot unarmed folks and lie about it. You hire admitted felons who lie on their applications and fail the backround and polygraph. You hire officers with misdemeanor arrest records. (This is why people come here when they can't be a cop somewhere else)You hire these turds, then when they kill someone, you promote them. You run J-walking tac plans when felony crime is off the charts. You fuck eachother's wives like it's common practice, and your chief condones it by calling it "Nature at Play". And you have a mayor along with an entire staff of administrators running the city who can't get their fucking lies strait from one day to the next. Yea, you really do things different here.

Have fun doing your different thing until it's you who gets shot combing your hair, talking on the cell phone or holding an ashtray. Have fun running things your way until the city is broke and your mayor is riding his burro off into the sunset with his sack of your tax dollars. Your different place has no morals or sense of justice. It will eat you as fast as it eats it's citizens. Have fun being chewed up and spit out because you are only another agenda away from being the next meal on the menu. Idaho's looking pretty good asshole. The good thing is that those responsible for this can only survive here. It is like a petri dish for them. Anywhere else they would be smashed like bugs. This is why they stay here, retire and linger like a fucking fart in the air. Have fun being a coward who falls in line and does what he is told. You'll have great things to tell your grandchildren, you nutless coward.

And then they say we respect the union rights of our employees and will negotiate in good faith, and what Rainaldi said was not accurate???? Since when does the CAO write an email to all city employees about how concerned they are about us???? Sounds FISHY AS HELL!!! And says that Rainaldi is wrong. She must have really got their hackles up!!! Good job!

I would like to congratulate Mark Johnson in the Polygraph unit for doing a great job in helping to hire Nelson Begay. It's nice to know that Mark discovered Begay was into child porn when he did his polygraph exam.

Oh wait, Mark didn't discover this and APD ended up hiring this guy. Will Johnson face discipline for not catching this? Why is he still on the department? He never works a full shift, has been caught several times shopping on duty, is a horrible polygrapher and tells everyone he is burned out. So why is he still here? He is harming APD and should be fired for the Begay hiring.

I want to know why Berry has never made going after drug dealers or cartels a high priority. If you look back on his record, his priorities have been theft of copper from construction companies, property crime, prostitution/johns. His only community initiative was housing for the homeless, which is a good thing, but seems like it was a feel-good initiative.
He's out of touch with the reality of drug addiction and drug crime in this city! He panders to his base,which is the rich, white business man republican living in 4 Hills or Tanoan.

It is incredible how those in supposed leadership positions in this corrupt city can point the finger at people, judge people, and essentially ruin people's lives with their decisions that make a 3 day suspension look like lunch in the park, but if these same so called leaders face just one ounce of scrutiny they fall apart like a cry baby. It's funny how the employee is supposed to just accept having their life ruined and move on but the big bad boss has a meltdown and calls 911. On top of it all, everyone has sympathy for this guy and we have to hear about how it is "out of respect" that they do not want to talk about it. It is about fucking time the double standard is ended. Life is sooooo hard at the salary this guy makes. Cry me a river will ya.

All of these filthy cowardly corrupt police leaders and scum bag lowlife politicians get raises, and an officer and her family have to suffer after she almost loses her life protecting this city? Everyone letting this happen should be thrown into a bonfire. There is no way in hell this woman should be using her time, or have to take a pay cut. This is so unbelievable that it defies rational comprehension.

Here is the idiocy. When these administrations want to burn a cop down, they will keep that cop on admin leave for years until they can fire them, but get shot in the line of duty and have your pay, benefits and pension cut. Is this place the most ridiculous place in the universe or is it me? I am now thoroughly convinced that the people who run the city and county could care less if their emergency services personnel get slaughtered by the dozens, as long as their selfish asses keep filling their pockets and they keep their perks. These county and city administrative folks aren't worthy of scalding yellow piss in the name of extinguishing their spontaneous human combustion. You evil motherfuckers will spend money to screw people over in order to cover for your crimes, but you will not spend s dime to do THE RIGHT THING, and help a hurt officer and her family.

I will be taking that KRQE article, and I will be posting it worldwide, starting with Police One dot com. Lets see how much recruitment goes up for BCSO and APD when officers around the world see that you will hire them then say fuck you when they get hurt being a hero!
