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.

Money Money MONEY

Western Albuquerque Land Holding LLC, is the company that wants to build the Santolina development on the west side. The development will cover 14,000 acres and will be a small city.  We at The EYE wonder who is going to buy the homes and fill the businesses ?  Where is the water going to be supplied from and at who's expense, taxpayers ?  Who is going to be paying for the infrastructure, roads, electric power, natural  gas, sidewalks, ect. ect..

Once again is it us the taxpayer. Santolina, why ? With virtually no population growth in New Mexico we again ask the question who is going to buy homes and fill the businesses ?  But wait in typical Albuquerque City Government the fix is in and we the tax payers are going to pay for it, BIG TIME.  An article in The Albuquerque Free Press breaks it down for you. It was in the January 27 2016 addition, worth reading in full. Here are the highlights. Seems that A.L.H. LLC is owned by Barclays Capital Real Estate and has been working behind the scenes since 2011  with city officials  to have the city purchase 13,644 acres for a cost of $33.1 million dollars for use as open space. The land is near the Rio Puerco miles from the city. So enter Matt Schmader, open space manager for the city. Schmader has been working closely with asset manager for AHL Garrett Development Corp. to purchase the land. Land that AHL can not use due to the fact it is not suitable for development. Garrett even gives Schmader ideas how the city can afford the land by raising sales taxes and property taxes, and having a public relations campaign.  Well Mr. Schmader what is in it for you ?  Better yet what is in it for us nobody's ? 

Of course we at The EYE know that Mayor Berry knows nothing about this, now don't we.

This rag really should avoid subjects it doesn't understand. Personal vendetta do not a news story make. Besides, honest journalists would never write for this rag so quality journalism will never happen here.

This rag should stick to lying about cops. It just fits the place better.

You speak a lot about rags, you vile smelly bag of fish. We know you do not use wash rags but you are always on one. Maybe you should pay attention to your hygiene you hairy armpitted onion smelling protestor. Oh that's right, you plead guilty. Criminal. All criminals like you should be thrown into a garbage disposal.

Of course they are not on admin leave. They are all brass and protected. If it was a patrolman why would be. That's okay let them stay at work but after they are all charged criminally the 5th floor will have to answer to that. From what I hear this scam had been going on for almost a year. I'm sure the tax payers would love to know that these guys had been getting paid out thousands of dollars for never working. Looks like the 5th floor or should I say Huntsman, is protecting Jordan because of his time in IA. Jordan knows some of there scary secrets that they don't want the public to know about some of the wrongful termination of officers, hiding of cellphones in the Casaus case and much much more.

Unfortunately EYE, you have allowed people on this blog to turn it into a childish, vulgar, and cheap venue where the uneducated can come and talk about things that don't matter. When you try and post a topic that really matters, it causes people to freeze and revert back to what they know, which is ripping APD and making crud remarks about sex. Great job in posting real issues, but you have to find a balance between freedom of speech and the idiots who just want to be idiots.

I don't get it. The city is finishing last in every category and they want to build a thousand more houses. Existing housing prices are down, education sucks, and law enforcement is at the lowest manning levels they have been at in 25 years. How in the hell do they plan on servicing and protecting the people that will live there. Once again it sounds like a mayor that wants to grease his way to the top than to actually take care of the people who elected him.

Since when did the eye on albuq become the eye on APD. The mayor is screwing up a lot more that APD. Here's an update on the time sheet scandal. Geha, Jordan, and Rogers will get off with out as much as a slap on the wrist because there are bigger issues APD is ignoring and will have to deal with later. Now let's focus on other issues like the Maypr completely destroying lives with ART and his spending money the city doesn't have on projects like those listed by the eye.

Shaun,
You motherfuckers better cut those checks and quit lying about hiring accountants. Your accountant has been handling this from the beginning. Enough is enough, before I come there myself to collect the money due to me. I am telling you.

@8:08 This rag has encouraged the venom that occurs here by being so insanely biased. It's interesting how you make no statement about the obvious cops who post their vile and disgusting vitriol here. Your post implies something different. The eye can't stop the rank and file from posting their disgusting comments because that is the bread and butter here.

This isn't journalism, and don't try to act like it is. This is a rag with an agenda.

I agree we need our money. We all need to go to APOA Meeting this week and show force and demand the truth. The truth is Lopez, PHAT ass, and other are asking to be compensated for their time they spent. I thought they got extra money every month on their pay check.

Anonymous said...

1. The APOA served it's own purpose and took money from the settlement to pay for willowby and lopez to have union jobs. This is to the tune of some 700k since it was back paid. They opted to do this in negotiations. The lawsuit was not a contract negotiation. Doesn't this open the door to bad faith on their behalf. If you worked that year you weren't doing it with the idea that it would be going towards salaries for willowby.

2. How are they legally allowed to hold one dime from any of us for three years for a tax dispute? Just because the dirty lawyer snuck it in at a board meeting does not make it legal. Why not pay us our money up front with the understanding that if a problem arises we will have to kick in our share? You know why? There is no tax problem, they are trying to cover themselves from a lawsuit that will most certainly happen once we get the truth.

3. The problem is that they have obviously tricked the board, all of willowbys friends, into believing this new cover up so they snuck in a vote to bind them forever.

I'll admit, there's a lot of talk out here and everybody wants something done. Does anyone else beside the NE think we can get a class action against the APOA and willowby going? Whoever talked them into taking on this payout should be fired immediately, but it was probably Rob Perry. This is an absolute catastrophe.

You changed the deal and you tried to hide it. The city robbed us of our raises and you used it to fund your salary? You're pathetic and evil. You already took our vacation time now this?

Let's stop this once and for all

Come on, man. Willoby isn't scared of any repercussions, legal and otherwise. If anybody really was in a position to hurt him, he wouldn't still be sitting on money due APD officers for a long time now.

Nobody in the APOA admin is worried about anything, and why should they be? The apathy of the majority has ensured nothing will change in this city.

True reform will require something more than protests, or legal filings, or even a decent blog. It'll take something big, and likely something painful for more than a few. People need to be shocked out of their apathy, because as long as the issue isn't "stinking up their house," nobody is going to care. It's simply human nature.

I can't say I know this for a fact, but I'd be willing to bet there are enough people in place in key positions around the city that could affect positive change, as long as others have their back. Knowing one won't be immediately thrown under the bus goes a long way.

Just a thought.

Actually, you are threatening them. That's very cop like of you. It's always great fun to come here and read the juvenile rants from America's sorriest police department. It's not unlike watching kindergartners fighting.

Willoughby and balls are not even in the same zip code. As a matter of fact. You, the little coward who carries water for the gutless self serving coward should follow your own advice, or go back to breast feeding from your hero's bitch tits. Better yet, how about you compare differences between Willoughby, and a fat back stabbing sell out, who only says what THEY allow him to say, so that he can fill his pockets.

Anyone who runs to the defense of Willoughby is by definition the exact reason the entire place is a cess pool. You will see in a few days what willoughby is all about. You asked for it, you got it.
