Our Eyes have told us that yet another APD ranking member has chosen to announce to everyone that he is fleeing (retiring) in light of scrutiny. Through the last few years, we have seen many questionable, to say the least, individuals (coincidentally?) leaving as soon as they are either accused of criminal behavior, served with lawsuits, or out of fear of being caught for what they have done when justice comes "breathing down their throats." As usual, greed trumps everything, and they opt to preempt the inevitable by retiring; some early. Yes folks, some of these cowards have retired early, losing thousands, because they know little is better than none. They really deserve nothing, because they are the root systemic problem with what has been plaguing this city. They are actually responsible for it. They are the culture of corruption in it's truest form, but ask them, and they are the only victim in all of this; the innocent party. Everyone else is the problem. It's all a big misunderstanding. Some actually think they can walk away from what they have done to citizens, employees, and this city. They are wrong. This is why they run. This is why they move out of state.
Look back at the cast of usual suspects we had running for the hills when the Department of Justice announced they were starting an investigation into the Albuquerque Police Department. We had deputy chief Paul Feist, and commander Rae Mason take off like bottle rockets. Beth Paiz, and several others retired abruptly also. Darren White bolted. Deputy chiefs came and went like dirty sox. We had two major positions fabricated, and one of them, Major Montano is now gone. We all knew former Deputy Chief Allen Banks, and the coward who started this... Ray Schultz, were going to run, and they did! Brachle and Sandy hung on just long enough to get that pension. Actually, the department intentionally stalled things to get them there. The good ones decided that enough was enough, and left on their own terms, and now the department is left in shambles. Hell, even that yellow colluding newspaper, the Albuquerque Urinal is doing stories on the MIA. Yes, even that bloated, gluttonous, dirt merchant Scott Greenwood is nowhere to be found. Maybe he found a new no bid contract city to foot the bills for his penchant for porn, and pay for his poodle's treats? We all knew this was coming. Two things these malfeasants have in common are greed and cowardice. This has been demonstrated with excellence. These distinguished alumni are now wondering when the other shoe is going to drop. Some of them actually get the heads up. That is why it seems like they are able to dance through the rain drops.
As the guilty point the finger, we have deputy chiefs supporting officers charged with murder, and bragging like criminals, that the state police have nothing on their buddies in this recent timesheet scandal, and criminal investigation into former IA lieutenant Eric Jordan, whom we hear is now the latest to prep for flight. That is right. Top APD brass are bragging that the state police have nothing. Famous last words. There is an old saying.... "Where there is smoke, there is fire." There has not only been blinding smoke, but the fire has been pretty out of control too. While others were terminated at the Albuquerque police department for untruthfulness, this individual was spared, when he admitted to stealing a wallet connected to a police investigation years ago when he was an officer, and his admission had to be pulled from him. Actually, he only admitted he took the wallet, because they caught him, so it is no surprise now that he has not even seen a day of administrative leave, since a state criminal investigation has been launched against him, and two others weeks ago.
As all of the above behavior continues, APD,s person in charge of the police academy, and resident grenade throwing termite, Jessica Tyler just can't help herself. When one person has one incident, it may or may not be their issue, but when one person has multiple incidents of drama, and controversy, resigns from a position, then brings their drama to another agency, and the nonsense continues in the same way it always has, you have to look to the one variable always in those failing equations. The problem usually lies there. It is even more evident when the behavior of that defective variable mirrors the behavior of the entity she is now aligned with and protected by. The below behavior is just as described...... pathetic. Cry victim when caught, make counter accusations, then.... when confronted with the truth, clam up, and take the fifth, and hope it all just goes away.
We here at the Eye would like to thank the Albuquerque Free Press for their continuing hard work in exposing the public corruption plaguing this city, it's residents, and employees.
We here at the Eye think it's going to be a long hot summer for some people.
