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.

Eyes from Barelas: Where is AFD?

We find lots of interesting things in our mailbox. Sadly it's not like Christmas, but more like Halloween with tricks or treats. A faithful reader sent us the following little treat this weekend. You see, it seems that no matter how the braintrust on the 11th Floor of City Hall tries to play games, the citizens of Albuquerque are wise to their little tricks.






Dear EYE,

I am a tax paying citizen of the Barelas community. I want to know why AFD is using a pumper truck in place of a ladder truck to serve our part of town. The last time I checked, the tall buildings are downtown. What the hell is going on with this city? A few weeks ago I saw we don't have enough firemen on our trucks and now we don't even have trucks! How the hell is the truck in this picture going to save anyone in a building downtown?  APD is a disgrace, AFD is short staffed and doesn't have trucks, Albuquerque is dead last in the entire county in job growth and New Mexico is now number one in child poverty. WTF is going on! 

Signed, Disgusted Barelas Resident

Ok Sandy pulled some bull shit and needs to get sacked but would someone like to explain to me why the fuck Chris Ramirez has posted the transcript of an internal affairs investigation on god damn channel 4.

You are legally required to participate in an IA. Now these douchebags are releasing them to the media. Way to line Sandy up for one fat payday.

Tell you what, AFSCME, release all the tapes where IA made us civilians discuss our sex lives including positions. The city set the precedent that the media can have this shit. Time the public know just how fucked up and sick IA is.

And civilians if your boyfriend is a 34 and he is on call IA will ask these god damn questions if you had sex while he was on call. They will ask these and a whole lot more invasive than this.

Dear Disgusted;

The middle and lower classes pay the taxes. The rich are excused, because they know someone, donate to political campaigns, or it is assumed they are creating jobs that excuse their money from the game.
These middle and lower class taxpayers are the same people who are targeted by law enforcement, given bullshit tickets, jailed so that population will stay steady and profitable, thrown in "programs" that simply mask ANOTHER way for the city/county/state to steal money from its' residents.
These middle and lower class people also do not vote, so all the rich guys getting the tax breaks? Yeah, those assholes can vote in whatever criminal is going to be nicest to them. I give you Mayor Berry, and the GUV.
Assuming we ever find a good candidate to fix this horrendous pile of shit Berry is turning Albuquerque into, the best thing you can do is suck, fuck and cajole every decent person you can find into getting out to vote, and fire these assholes!
The government is supposed to be run for the people. At some point the people(who were worried about their own lives) started taking it for granted that the guys running the city, the courts, the jails, the public services for them were just going to keep being honest.
We forgot to watchdog them, to keep an eye on whether they are honest, decent folks.
What showed up and got elected, appointed to run APD and the rest of the city, was a bunch of opportunistic shitheads who don't mind at all running the city into the ground, as long as they get some money, some connections, some 16 year old homeless girls to use for sex out of the whole thing.
We screwed up. We quit offering any defense for our city, any punishment for being criminal.
Look at us. These guys lie and break the law and we catch them. We do nothing. We point at some other criminal asshole who didn't get punished as a reason not to punish these guys.
We need to start holding these people accountable for even half of the felonies they commit.
Rob Perry showing up at a crime scene drunk, shoulda probably gotten him fired.
Kari Brandenburg NEVER prosecuting a single criminal cop, she shoulda been removed after any one of the blatantly criminal cops were excused....
The mayor, JESUS, what a fucking mess! How many lies do you think a mayor should be allowed to be caught in before he is removed as a public menace, how many cronies hired, jobs awarded to buddies who go directly and immediately over budget but are allowed to keep the contracts they mangle..?!
What of Gorden Eden?
As soon as that asshole showed up he started lying. When he proved to be no good at it, they actually hired some other asshole to say his lines for him. $90+k a year to lie convincingly.
It's your money, Disgusted. Get some people out there, and get these fucking sleazebags out of the positions they're killing us with.
If everyone who knows how crooked things are were to get two others to vote, and to find one or two more people to do the same, we'd turn things around.
Don't worry about who did what ten years ago, that's gone.
Worry about who is doing what now, and what they'll do if they're allowed to continue......

You said a mouth full! Touche! I'm sick of the lies. What this administration has done is criminal. They should all be fired!

Sandy is a douche bag that needs to be gone and never allowed to carry an gun. He was strutting around prior to the shooting talking shit. He continues to talk shit. Thank God there was a video of the shooting and another video of his attitude. He sounded pissed because NMSP were on scene. He's in ROP so once ROP is on scene all others can take their positions on the outer perimeter. ROP will handle it....

ROP = SWAT

When did this happen? ROP used to do cases and put career criminals in prison. Now they run around like a little SWAT team, talking trash and only serving warrants. ROP was once a great unit, now it is just a SWAT Joke. ROP should be disbanded.

APD specialized units have been Rogue for years. They need to be reigned in, personnel changed along with supervisors. They have been an antiquated faction with antiquated principles for far too long. Using them as a hiding place for fuck-ups has lost its usefulness and will cost the citizens millions. Change is needed now.

Janet Blair was humiliated by KOB yesterday. Thousands of dollars wasted paying some lying conniving haggardly scum to hide. These is no transparency here. The mayor and quasi police chief are liars. They have worn themselves out and now hide. Now they pay liars to lie for them. Now the liars for the liars are worn out and everyone is on to them too. They have run out of willing liars. All of this, while Penn and Teller negotiate for them with the Feds. This is hilarious. Blair should resign. I watched her hobble north on the east side of the police headquarters the other day and she looked like a piece of driftwood. She looked as if another minute in the sunlight, she would dry up and blow away. Notice how these coward PIOs have offices in police buildings. Notice how they are always hovering around the police ready to spin the story. APD has only one thing that is consistent. The games they play. Oh, and the lies.

Berry Perry Schultz Feist Tourek Wheeler Eden White
Martinez McCleskey Levy and a handfull of minions are responsible for everything that is going on here.

Big mistake bringing the State Police weirdos to APD. They got fired from SP!!!! WTF??

Anonymous said...

Thanks Schultz for hiring these guys who NMSP fired. Ray Schultz owns it and he should be brought back and indicted.

Speaking of indicting Schultz where is the Taser and Red Flex investigations at? Any word from the Inspector General? The State Auditor? The New Mexico Attorney General? The US Attorney?

The US Attorney slammed Tommy Rodella within months. We have Ray Schultz on camera with KRQE admitting to breaking the law and the US Attorney appears afraid to act. Come on Damien Martinez, sic Nedra on Schultz and watch how fast you get convictions. That gal goes after corruption with a fury, unleash her upon the corruption at APD and lets start making changes.

I said Casaus would walk, and I was mostly right. He won't do a day inside.

I wish somebody would hurt him the way he hurt the Browder family. A fantasy, I know, but I wish it all the same.

Mr. Barelas, the "HEROS" are very busy cruising Ladder 1 up Central! I see it everyday. Don't worry A pumper can put out a dumpster fire. 90% of all fire in ABQ are dumpsters!

Why does the AFD have so many little units? A retired Fireman/double dipper who's job is to fix air masks and bottles. There is no work, so he drives to all the stations delivering supplies! REALLY, WHAT A GREAT JOB!

Anonymous said...

I think its more like 92% ha.... These "heros" are nothing but a bunch of overpaid hosemonkies. Give me a break and go back to working out and chasing girls.

The city needs to make the fire department do what they are good at.... Nothing. Give AAS more funding and a better contract, they are the real backbone of the city who do the heavy lifting.
