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.

In the Rearview Mirror: 2013

Much thanks to the many emails and posts people sent in.

2013 offered an abundance of things for us shake our head at, empty our stomachs on, stare in disbelief, and frankly make us want to conceal that Albuquerque is our home. But it is our home, and despite the following list, it is up to us to make this place better. But as you look at the following, it will take effort and unity....we added a little "Eye" humor to make what frankly is truly quite disgraceful a little easier to handle. Kinda like what those Deming cops like to do, hold on here it comes:



-Lieutenant Tim Lopez goes 10-40 and gets in fight with his own officers when they refuse to clean his own gun. Lopez didn't seem to find it funny that the nerf gun provided to him in the rubber room didn't need cleaning.

-Senior IRO investigator Trey Flynt and his pirated sports shirts and “booty” website gets fired and redefines what it means to be a loser. He know enjoys Burr-eat-ohs with his buddy TJ.

-City lawyer Kathryn Levy is caught taking pictures of speakers at the POC and Schultz's smirking gets caught on camera. Little did they know they'd be modeling for the monsters in the next Mercer Mayer book.

-Ray Schultz slips up and reveal APD's unwritten but rampant “nature at play” SOP and leads by example for once. Except let's call it what it is: GROSS!

-Perry fires Schultz hours after a huge verdict against Schultz and APD. Nevermind the cops you've fired, been sued by, department you've ruined, economy you've depressed, joke you've become, the truth is Schultz is trying "nature at play" with Rob and Rob aint playin!

-Berry’s policies encourage crime rate to turn around and start climbing in virtually every category except theft of frozen burr-eat-ohs.

-Ellis family: $10,300,000, APD under Ray Schultz: $0 and all Berry got was a red thong.

-12 SE units are off/sick out of 19 units listed to work on a quiet day in December leaving 6 for all of day of shift. But no worries because Berry and  Banks say there's no calls for service anyway.

-An entire class of officers file suit against the city for age discrimination. But that's ok because like every other outside entity that says Banks/Schultz are unlawful in conduct, EEOC is wrong too.

-APD Brass handling of Mary Han’s suspicious death gets even more repugnant: faced with allegations of taking pictures and stolen property, APD “loses” city issued cell phones to key personnel including: Allen Banks, Paul Feist, Rob Perry, TJ Wilham, Marc Adams, Beth Paiz, and  Darren White. In response to harsh judicial criticism, APD's response is, "oh we didn't know you meant those phones."

-APD SWAT loses federal certification. But that's ok because Berry says crime is down.

-Judge Murdoch rape case is dismissed for gross errors by APD detective Sandy. No Keith, you can't do snitches that way.

-Exploding city budget; APD’s budget unjustifiable given the workforce reduction of almost 30%. But that's ok because crime is down.

-DOJ. Like the little girl from Poltergeist, "They're here..."

-RTCC drone gets dumped in a spontaneous case of the Harlem Shuffle but West Mesa style.

-Lessons lost in the Christopher Chase incident: Kill Zone is the area you don't drive into.

-Levi Chavez, and the suicides continue. But that's ok, because APD is so desperate for cops he'll be back in blue in no time.

-Chickens coming home to roost: Russell Perea, Zane Reeves, APOA 2008 contract….

-So bad it's worth a second mention: Red Thong! No RJ, we didn't say "Red Dawn"

-Vincent Yermal and Rob Perry: acts of labor intimidation and examples of how the beatings will continue until morale improves.

-AFD rank and file take to the streets and protest Berry/Perry’s failures. However when confronted by a old WMA that's 39, 18, and very 10-40....they run and call APD!

-Paul Heh steps up and makes noble mayoral effort; calls “bullshit” on Berry’s lies.

-APOA/City Tentative Agreement: Officers to get 1 penny raise for each month the parties have been in “negotiations.”

-Personnel floodgate remains open, pool dwindling, fewer officers on APD's streets than in the late 1980s. But that's ok because crime is down.

- From the producers of "Nailin Palin" comes "APD Academy: The Adventures of Joe Wolf"

-CAO Perry gives self $33,000 raise but then blows it on scotch and 23rs.

-Interim, Temporary, Professional Lifetime Victim Chief Allen Banks caught lying again. But that's ok because crime is down.

-Off duty sergeant Adam Casaus runs a red light and broadsides a private citizen resulting in traumatic injuries to the driver and the tragic death of the passenger. Once again we are left with, what did Schultz know and when did he know it.

-Former Violent Crimes detective, and forever insider, Sgt. Darcy McDermitt violates Firearm Safety Rule #2: Keep you finger off the trigger. The result? She shoots one of her own officers in the leg.

and last but not least...

-NM state Attorney General Gary King unloads on APD and city brass by confirming they contaminated and interfered with the Mary Han crime scene, perpetrated outrageous conduct, falsified information, and were generally inexplicable in their actions. But that's ok because city attorney David Tourek says the AG report is frivolous while sitting in for Will Farrell on the set of "Elf 2: I'm a Jingle for Your Bell."

Thanks for playing this year folks. It's been painful and frustrating so we're gonna kick back a few days and drink some Ripple, play with table top saws, and see how many firecrackers we have to set off before the SWAT team shows up. Oh, wait, we forgot, there isn't one anymore because there's no more cops. Nevermind, we'll have some more Ripple.  Have a safe New Years, and hold on 2014 is gonna be wild.

P.S. 2013 Poster of the Year Award goes to...........none other than the Tremendous Regulator. Meet us up at the Barelas Coffee House TR, we'll buy you a real cup of joe!

P.S. Thanks to the poster below for catching two major oversights.

Take a look at the graph from the Wall Street Journal. This is what 4 years of Berry / Martinez has gotten us. Flat lined economy while everyone else around us is going up. No wonder so many are leaving Albuquerque and New Mexico. Martinez / Berry out of idea, but did they ever have any to begin with?

If anybody has ANY doubt we are truly Fucked Up Beyond Belief, compare this list to what the LA Times is holding as news for the LA county sheriff's office:

http://www.latimes.com/local/la-me-badge-county-hires-20131229-dto,0,7777028.htmlstory#axzz2otCB7Thj

Wow a few deputies that got in some light DV and some bar fights. How big is LASD? About 11,000 sworn deputies. That's more than 11x the size of APD. And this make the front page of the LA Times.

Good job Eye. this is sad, but this list is just evidence of how we tolerate this bullshit. I know folks have been on Stephanie's ass lately but you know what, keep pushing it stephanie. The latest story on 4 has been right. Tell Garcia to go fuck himself.

Anonymous said...

And yet KOB leads with a story of how construction jobs are up in Albuquerque and the future is bright. I'm all for positive outlook, but this story seems like it was spoon fed to the media by Berry. It's more like a big fat lie!!!

Anonymous said...

Hey Stuart Dison How about asking the businesses in Nob Hill if they think there are enough cops out here? Or how about asking the neighbors of the little boy that was killed by his mother if they think there are enough cops. Your follow up story sucked. All you did was force the public to drink Berry Kool Aid (trademark). Why don't you ask the citizens or the officers or look at crime data? Albuquerque Police have been horribly mismanaged by Berry. Oh and while your at it ask Berry just how come BCSO is fully staffed with no officers getting into trouble, but Berry and his college cops can't keep staffing up and are always in trouble. Ask Berry just why does 60 hours at a community college provide a better officer than someone who has worked and paid their bills. Berry doesn't know, it just sounds good.

Here is your synopsis of the lame Journal article about Banks.

Banks, "I love Jesus, I will mention every APD cop who people have good memories of (even though they didn't know me), I love Coach Hulsman, if I don't get chief it is because I am black, I have strong faith, I will use the death of a child friend because of DWI to help get me the job as chief, I will do anything to become chief, I have religion, don't ask about Mary Han."

are you people really surprised? the administration has bred officers that are unethical and have no morals, yet they are still employed recieved little or no dispciline and no one cares:


1) female has affair with then sgt. she is discovered and kills herself. sgt is transferred and then promoted. memo is sent by cpt henz that the transfer was voluntary and had nothing to do with events. Yet the position was never open to anyone else

2) female and married swat guy caught having sex in parking lot , he is told not to go to academy unless teaching. neither are disciplined

3) male sgt lies about stalking dispatcher. is given numerous chances, is demoted, messes up again and nothing happens.

4) male sgt is caught lying in i.a. with issue with his lt. walks out and admits lying, nothing happens still sgt

5) same male sgt gets in trouble for interferring and trying to influence problems at his childrens school, nothing happens

6) same sgt involved in domestic at his house with his firearm, all covered up

6) female officer caught lying about being on a traffic stop. gets disciplined and then sent to rifle school

7) male officer hardships to dayshift to take care of children at his house with his wife. meanwhile he picks and chooses what calls he takes because he has "ptsd" and a sore back from carrying backpacks in the military. lazy sack of shit. lying to get money. he has no disability, hes just an asshole and old and seems him and his wife enjoy the high life now

8) officers and brass go to levi chavez house. say they are just helping out, full of shit. any officer knows the biohazards of blood ridden sheets or anything. they know he killed her

9) ron olivas, a paid contractor, leaks confidential and personal information to the journal. apoa pres hides it from everyone and protects him, paying him severance and then some

10) contract presented to officers that the pres and vp are trying hard to sell to officers. a contract not even based on what is supposed to be paid to officers and takes vacation time away from officers. never proofread or reviewed by apoa pres

11) pio walks around office, not even wearing a gun, shes a cop just never acting like a cop and it is laughed off

12) lapel camera policy changed, given non working cameras, yet officers are disciplined

13) "nature at play" is chiefs response to the unethical behavior that officers and command staff are endulging in

14) command staff goes into secured scene at mary han's house and touch and go through drawers, opening the fridge, laughing, and asking officers to change their narrative reports

15) lt at academy is having affair with id lady, he is transferred to chiefs office

16) academy staff given i.a. letters because of overzealous employee complaint. who notified media

17) rehires sue, yet they are given inside positions no one tested for. edmunson at the academy, garduno at the range, the many at schools, deherrera and landovao head up the lawsuit. they knew when they came back, yet are treated with gold gloves now. bruce--- grass wasnt greener on other side, you are a shame to the corps and its values

18) officers are given a kudos for pursuing bad guy. one sgt turns into i.a. and then charges are filed on officers. one of the officers escapes abq and goes to teh middle east to fight.

19) pathetic when officers leave apd to go to iraq and afghanitstan, not only for money but retirement is paid and its better environment

20) command staff still lying about numbers in field. officers on roster that havent worked in field or anywhere else for that matter.

Ok, "anonymous", since you seem to know so much about me why don't you do this: Pull up my monthlies and call record and then call me lazy. I don't "pick and choose" anything! As for the rest of your claims, I don't need to explain anything to anyone about what my wife and I do with our budget to afford "the finer things". As far as the disability goes, when you have even come close to walking a mile in my shoes then you can talk shit! Or better yet, since you seem to know me and my family so well, come by the house and have the balls to say it to my face!!! But since you want to hide behind "anonymous" I can just assume that you don't have the guts to do anything like that, you will just play like you are a "friend" and talk shit behind our back. I hope your life is as pitiful as you are!!!

To the whiny cop who got called out:
I'm guessing if the commenter is stuck working at APD, his life really is as pitiful as you're hoping for. I can't imagine working day in, day out with such a corrupt bunch of petty criminals and cowards pal. And I hope you see this and invite me to meet up and tussle. Are you really offering to fight with someone, really?! I was helped to a dose of corrupt cops, and I'd love for you to let me legally take it out on one of you, thanks for the offer. APD is peopled with windy little gasbags, scared little people, and criminals...at 210#, standing 5'9", and after 20 years in bars, I know what tough is, and I get guys wanting to measure themselves up to me all the time. the thing is, you get to know who's actually tough, and what scared looks like. You ought to get a look at how scared you little boys actually are. You didn't take the job because you're tough, you all take the job for the opposite reason...because you're so terrified of the world that you're hoping desperately that a badge and some buddies will make it so you don't have to be scared any more. The thing is, then you have to go confront real, tough, scary guys...and you realize you hate it. It's why so many guys get shot so quick, your terror.It's also why you guys spend all day toting the homeless out to MDC to serve full sentences, because the arrest keeps you off the real calls for a while....Go ahead, call me a liar. Do you have the balls to try the lie where you say you don't go get homeless panhandlers, jaywalkers and shoplifters all day to avoid semi-dangerous calls? You work in such a corrupt force, and no real, honest, dedicated guys will join you, just more little, cowardly boys and girls with social issues who can't find a way to matter unless you can force it on other people. We're coming though, guys. There are several movements afoot, we're recording inside courtrooms, we're recording in the hallways outside courtrooms, we're documenting you being bad....you feel so smart, but the fact is, APD is peopled with men and women so ignorant and self-important that they can't see beyond their own uncatchability, and the thing is, you've been operating under that assumption so long, you've given away your game far too much to assign the sort of documentation going on to a "Few bad apples."
You're gonna be looking at quite a mess soon enough, and you're gonna look silly, tough guy. And be guarding used car lots and vacuum repair stores soon enough.....and you're so gloriously slow-witted, I don't even mind telling you it's happening, because you couldn't catch a whiff in an outhouse, so here's a full on taunt for you to gnaw on. By the time we're done calling you out on the mess you are, you're gonna be worth nothing, and you deserve no better....the people deserve to be able to pay for honest people to treat them well, and protect their community, and all they've been getting is little pussies, stealing from them and wrecking their city and their peace of mind. Go ahead, write back and tell me you aren't scared of a documented reckoning. I'd love to see it.

Anonymous said...

2:21...Disagree. They (DOJ) would not spend so much money and time here if stuff wasn't gonna go down. On the criminal charges heads will roll and in particular the issues with Kindle and the West Mesa murders, the botched Han murder scene. The civil side is so complex jobs will be lost. Mostly due to extreme lack of oversight and lack of proper management and supervision. The city does have a problem promoting those who should instead be DE-moted! Nepotism.

1-1; 4:19pm: Absolutely astounding!! You have accurately described the vast majority of those losers in APD (uniformed especially) living a life of "I'm cool, I'm tough, I'm bad, I'm purdy with all my shit on and my shades, I pack a gun (the really cool cops amoung us carry an extra one tucked away in our anal holster, just in case). But I've never been able to deal very well with confrontational issues. So , if you and I are ever involved in a confrontational issue, don't even pull a handkerchief out of your pocket to wipe your nose, because in my nervousness, I will swear it was a tortilla with a 16 round magazine and I will rightfully blow you full of holes. I'm bad. We all are."

You forgot to mention the bones that keep turning up in BCSO territory near I25. The news mentions them for one day each time then stops. I guess after the first dozen set went unsolved it is no longer a big deal, after all Schultzie said we do not have a serial killer on the loose. I guess this new set of girls buried themselves as a group. Since everyone who worked the case from the Det to the Chief has left, except for Allen the Almighty, he is making sure it is not happening again.

A real cop, writing a threat about how if he/she doesn't like someone, they make up an excuse and shoot 'em dead?! awesome! did you get that Albuquerque?! there's your upstanding police people for you, in a nutshell! "Hey, you think I'm a wimp, I'll kill you for saying it!" Yay! You cop, man you'd better hope there's no way to trace your death-threat down, I guess....that sort of retarded comment "I will rightfully blow you full of holes for not being properly scared of me" that sort of thing don't usually fly real far, sluggo. I don't own a gun, BTW. Never got that scared. Shall we see if we can find you, and then out you to the popular news media, murderer-to-be? See, that's the part where you're too self-agrandized for your own good. It's called "Hubris"..you're gonna have to have someone else read the definition and explain it to you, I feel sure, but really, death threats from a cop to a private citizen? You might just be an issue, stud.

Your statement of "at 210#, standing 5'9", and after 20 years in bars, I know what tough is" is hilarious! Go back to your fantasy world of being a tough guy amongst the drunks of the world. The only world in which you are likely to find any companionship from the numerous drunk bar flies you prey upon. Go back under the rock from which you crawled from and continue to admire yourself in front of the mirror of your lonely abode.

About time you guys start telling like it is. APD is full of incompetent pusses who are afraid of their own shadow who's bravery comes out of the end of a gun barrel. 2014 is going to be the year of the end for all of you... I'm hoping the good guys who have bailed get together and start their own civilian PD. Take the calls away from APD and leave them twidling with each others privates while their whole system of justice implodes in on itself.

You are the epitome of APD. You have zero conflict resolution skills, and your only recourse is either threats or force. You're just as bad as the sergeant referenced as #3 in that list (speaking of, how is that scumbag still a cop?). I'd keep your badge if I were you. Without it, nobody will respect your authority, which may cause your disability to get worse.
