There were two recent stories reported by KRQE CH13 that caught our Eye. The first story is concerning a thug by the name of Anthony Chavez who is intelligent enough to commit violent crimes but is mentally incompetent to be held accountable for his action. This is a complete conflict. Either your incompetent or your competent and you’re committing crimes. The second story is about Chelwood Elementary School and Its playground that has been taken over by prairie dogs. APS is complaining about the cost; claiming it will cost up to twenty thousand dollars to move the prairie dogs. This is a serious health issue and a danger to our kids. At the same time APS has blown hundreds of thousands of dollars on the last two incompetent superintendents.
The first story was about Anthony Chavez and his get-out-of-jail-free-card. In an interview with District Attorney Brandenburg; Mr. Chavez cannot be prosecuted because he has been judged mentally incompetent. This is despite Mr. Chavez being arrested time after time for breaking into homes, vehicles, pointing guns at victims and being caught on video stealing time after time. Mr. Chavez has to commit a violent crime before he can be confined to a mental health institution. Aggravated Assault with a deadly weapon is not violent enough. Mr. Chavez will have to shoot someone, kill someone, kidnap someone, or rape someone to be sentenced to a mental institution. Oh wait a minute rape won't work because the Rape Kit will never be processed. Does anyone want to volunteer to be Mr. Chavez next victim?
Does anyone see the next lawsuit against APD; “Man Shot by APD was Mentally Incompetent.” Everyone knows he’s a danger and when the officers have to stop this thug, the tables will be turned and poor little Tony was going to get back on his meds and get his GED. He was even thinking about getting a job someday.
END SIDE BAR
Come on folks we’re all nobody’s and the politicians could care less if we get hurt. We can hear it now; the politicians will get in front of the media and say our hearts and prayers go out to the family of nobody. We will take steps to make sure this will never happen again. We at the Eye think the morons that made this law should change it now, create the right legislation. Oh that's right politicians are too busy doing nothing.
The second story is about Chelwood Elementary School. It seems the school playground has been taken over by prairie dogs. This is a huge health hazard to the children, teachers and anyone who visits or works at the school. The children are walking in what the prairie dogs leave behind and are tracking it into the school, lunchrooms, buses and taking it home to their family. It is just a matter of time until one of the children gets bitten and suffers a severe health problem. Now we at the Eye know there is no rabies or plague in New Mexico; now is there? A.P.S. states it would cost up to twenty thousand dollars to move the prairie dogs because they are protected by City Ordinance (City Council and Mayor REALLY!!!) Oh, we get it; no politician’s children go to that school, just a bunch of nobody's. At least A.P.S. put a price tag on a child’s life; twenty thousand dollars. We at the Eye wonder how much the lawsuits will cost us taxpayers’. Really you bunch of morons, how much did you paid for the last two superintendents that failed our children and our community? IF YOU WANT TO CHANGE THINGS; you need to VOTE!
We at the Eye agree for the most part you are just replacing one politician with another. We must keep replacing them, no second term, unless they are taking care of us, our children and our community and conducting business in the best interest of the public. If they want to stay in office they will do what the citizens want. There is no amount of money that will compensate for a child's life. The problems have been exposed by Channel 13. When something bad happens the politicians must be held accountable and if necessary prosecuted.
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.
