In recent weeks our Eyes tell us that APD's Real Time Crime Center has been under major scrutiny because of the disaster involving the Christopher Chase shooting.
You see, as we all know, the RTCC was recently ousted APD chief Ray Schultz's brainchild on his unfinished list of things to do with APD. And while the merits of such a centralized information gathering and monitoring unit are debatable, we do know that a former beat journalist from a failing local newspaper is low on the list of qualified candidates. Yet give the current director's lack of experience, APD continues to present TJ Wilham as the maestro of how the RTCC gets things done. Or not get things done. Here below is a pic from an APD presentation boasting about the RTCC and Wilham's public leadership role before a meeting of police chiefs and managers earlier this year:
I think we'll let the bullet points concerning TJ Wilham speak for themselves. "High energy" "Creative" "Savvy" In this presentation, APD's personnel crisis was of course put on full parade. After all, if there were plenty of officers in the field there really wouldn't be a justification for the RTCC:
So what does this all have to do with the Chris Chase incident? You see in many ways it was the tragic result of APD's near total mismanagement. Here you personnel and funding being poured into a unit that is supposed to be for the immediate benefit of patrol officers. Much has been pitched about the RTCC increasing patrol officer's "situational awareness." But none of this matters when you have somebody who has more experience in violating officers and citizens rights than law enforcement as is the case with Wilham. But hey, when you "know how to work the system" and are politically connected, what does one need qualifications for?
One last thing, an image was sent to us that is very revealing about the RTCC's failures. You see the blue dot in the picture below? That is an APD sergeant. You see, our Eyes tell us that for sometime now the actual locations of patrol sergeants and field personnel have been monitored by the RTCC. So while our officers are out watching the streets, Wilham-Banks-Willoughby have been watching you. Maybe it's time APD and Berry step up and show us how many officers were deployed in the field on the day Chase went on his tragic rampage, and where they were...
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.
