Some very interesting posts came in over the last day and deserve to be highlighted. First, the term "Tasergate" has been picked up in the media. Credit for that little doosey goes to our frequent, and sometimes hated, poster known as the "Tremendous Regulator." So before KOAT's Doug Hernandez tries to claim it as his idea....well it wasn't.
Also, we've been flooded with emails regarding other parties who seem to have their priorities entangled with Berry's objectives to keep the truth hidden and reality obscured.
One such party is Robert Caswell and his company Robert Caswell Investigations. You see this is a private investigation firm that the city has contracted with for years. Yet we were forwarded the following, Eye-raising information. It seems, 2013 was a very VERY good year for RCI:
Why would there be a 371% increase in fees paid? And during an election year? Hmmmm....
Then of course there is the matter of Kaufman's West owner, Nate Korn. You see aside from being a huge supplier of equipment to APD, Mr. Korn is also the vice-chairman of the NM Law Enforcement Academy Board. Mr. Korn is frequently the acting chair of the board. So while today's paper was quick to assign blame on AG Gary King and his involvement with the fiasco at the state's police academy, let's be real, Mr. Korn has been the one pushing for the reduction in curriculum and what can only be described as sheer fandom of state academy director Jack Jones.
Hey Kent, we have Eyes on your game; if it's good for the goose, its good for the gander.... We don't see Gary King having any financial relationship with APD unlike Korn. In fact we applaud AG King for his scrutiny of APD last summer which truly was one of the first, most objective, and honest of analysis of one of APD's most repugnant incidents.
