FAST AND FURIOUS... GONTERMAN STYLE. THE ART OF NEVER LEARNING YOUR LESSON, AND THE APD UPPER COMMAND STAFF'S DELIBERATE NON-COMPLIANCE
What we are going to tell you today is proof that the administration of the City of Albuquerque, and the administration of the Albuquerque Police Department go out of their way to cover for ranking brass, the politically connected, and those they want to for their own agenda based reasons. In the same light, the same administrators go out of their way in the opposite direction to put the screws to individuals they see as expendable for their political purposes, to deflect attention away from their own public corruption, to sway public opinion in their favor, manipulate the media, and directly thwart reform thorough the DoJ consent decree process.
While all of the above is occurring, those within APD who have proven time and time again that they can not handle the authority bestowed upon them, continue to wear out their welcome.
Over the last few years we have seen not only rocketing crime rates, but the sheer shocking types of these horrific crimes fester unlike never before. We are finding bodies just lying dead in our streets. We are finding beheaded corpses behind shopping centers with their genitals cut off. Mothers, and their children are being shot to death on the front lawns of their homes by lunatics. Helpless children are found raped, dismembered, disemboweled, half eaten, and lit on fire in apartment building bath tubs, with their internal organs thrown on the roof and in freezers. Yes, they didn't tell you that all of that. As a matter of fact, Celina Espinosa, the mouthpiece for APD lied, and said preliminary investigations were conducted by "detectives" over initial abuse allegations concerning the Victoria Martens murder case. Our highways get taken over by roving bands of reckless Mad Max drivers. Children are killed in auto accidents on their way to and from school. Punks wield machetes in supermarkets. Family pets are shot in the streets. Finally, this week a man is found with his hands nailed to a fucking tree in the Bosque by the Rio Grande River. Where does it end?
While all of this is going on, Police Chief Gorden Eden, and Mayor Richard GhostBERRY is nowhere to be found. Not only that, but they are in full lash out mode against the Media, Judges, and all critics of their malfeasant, criminal, and cowardly behavior. Through lies and manipulation the administration of this city have proven that they are criminally unfit to run the place. They have proven that they only care about pumping up their pensions, and getting out of here to reap the kickback benefits from their political handlers, like our pizzah party governor, or companies they illegally directed business towards. Make no mistake, this administration, their enablers, and those who have done their dirt for them, by following their orders, are not stake holders. They have no stake in the place. They could care less about fixing the place, because they broke it. They kept their mouths shut, broke the law, defrauded courts, the public and the media, then they either took off, or are in the process of stacking their last three years, or are waiting for that promised promotion, before retiring, so that they can milk every single drop out of the place, like a parasitic tick, before they take the money and run. In 5 years the entire command staff has turned over almost twice. The place is a laughing stock worldwide.
A LESSON NOT LEARNED
In May of 2014 Major Gonterman stated “It was a mistake, and I have learned from that mistake. I have taken responsibility for it,” Gonterman said. “Since that time, I have become a use of force instructor, and a less lethal technology instructor to train officers to use the minimal amount of force necessary to make an arrest. I am also trained in crisis intervention.” Gonterman stated this in reference to a 2002 arrest where he burned a man's ear off with a Taser while making an arrest. Gonterman gets to make what he calls is a mistake, but what we all know was an intentional case of malicious use of sadistic brutality, where a man was contact drive stunned on his ear, to the point of causing 3rd degree burns, and loss of the ear. It is ironic, because this Major has a reputation of retaliating against officers, and hypocritically frying officers for way less than he has done, as you will shortly see. After all, he has since become an instructor to tell officers not to do what he does.
Back in July of 2014, the City of Albuquerque purchased some very high end rifles called the Primary Weapons System (PWS) MK1. We did an article on this back then connecting the dots, and outlining a special someone who got one of these rifles. These rifles MSRP out at almost $2000. You can see the article here:
2014 EYE ON ALBUQUERQUE ARTICLE CONNECTING THE DOTS ON GONTERMANS RIFLE
Our Eyes are telling us that Gonterman was heavily involved in getting these guns. It is really not funny anymore how the usual suspects just keep on popping up. Remember this, because this PWS AR15 rifle is now out on the streets, in some criminal's hands, because the Major it belonged to inappropriately, and negligently stored it. No surprise here, but this clown got another free pass.
MORE DO AS I SAY, AND OUT OF CONTROL HYPOCRISY
Some time on 2/21/17 - 2/22/17 Major Timothy Gonterman's well equipped Primary Weapon's system AR rifle, and his Remington 870 12ga shotgun were stolen from his APD assigned SUV which was parked at his residence. Major Gonterman's vehicle, unlike the lowly patrol officer's vehicle is equipped with a convenient key fob door lock system, that is easily activated with the push of a button. Major Gonterman's vehicle is also equipped with a steel weapon storage vehicle vault.
On 12/21/16 APD police academy cadet Jessie Gallagher's vehicle was broken into in front of her home. Taken from her vehicle was a Smith and Wesson M&P 9mm duty weapon.
On 1/22/17 APD officer Doug Moore had his APD cruiser broken into, and a Remington 870 Bean Bag shotgun, and Def-Tec 40mm gas launcher were stolen.
On 2/4/17 APD police academy cadet Unal Alper had his private vehicle broken into at his apartment complex parking lot. Stolen from his vehicle was one Smith and Wesson M&P 9mm duty weapon.
On 2/13/16 it was discovered that an APD owned Remington 870 shotgun, previously issued to retired officer Gerald Sheldon was missing, and unaccounted for by the APD Property Unit. Sheldon told APD that while still employed with APD sometime in 2014, he lent the shotgun to then Sgt. Mark Garcia for honor guard services, and it was never returned. Garcia is now a retired Lieutenant. As of our knowledge, this firearm was entered into NCIC as stolen, and as of this date is still missing and unaccounted for by APD.
Out of all of the above thefts, one gun was lost, and 6 were stolen in auto burglaries. All but one of these auto burglaries involved forced entry to the vehicle. Cadet Gallagher's door was bent to gain access to unlock it. Officer Moore's cruiser had the window broken, because it was locked too. Even recruit Alper's vehicle had the window smashed out due to his door being locked. All of these individuals had locked their doors but ONE..... MAJOR TIMOTHY GONTERMAN. Although evidence proves Gonterman did nothing to secure his weapons appropriately, he came out with the excuse that he activated his vehicle locks via his key fob. We call dog shit on that. You know why? Because there was a secondary form of security that should have backed up his locked door theory, and that was his vehicle mounted weapon vault, which is equipped with a lock, but was not locked, nor was their any signs of forced entry into it either. All in all, Timothy Gonterman's vehicle was accessed by a thief, and 2 weapons were stolen, yet there was no forced entry to two levels of security in place, that he failed to use properly by locking.
DISPARITY IN TREATMENT.... WHATS NOT GOOD FOR THE GONTERMAN
There are forms called PROPERTY REPLACEMENT AND REPAIR FORMS used within APD when equipment gets broken or stolen in this type of case. There forms have check off boxes where the actions of the employee can be deemed negligent, or not negligent, and approved, or disapproved for financial payment, and replacement by the city of Albuquerque for the loss of equipment. Guess who was not held negligent, and had their shit paid for? You got it. The same old time and time again... MAJOR TIMOTHY GONTERMAN.
This is not only unfair. It is cowardly, filthy, malfeasant, disgusting, dishonorable and so hypocritical that you will just not believe it if it weren't APD where this occurred. You see, our Eyes told us that Jessica Tyler advocated for cadet Gallagher, saving her job, until she graduated. Cadet Alper was fired on 2/6/17, just two days after having his gun stolen. Both cadets were held financially responsible, and negligent in the cases of their gun thefts.
Officer Moore was deemed not negligent, and not responsible in his case, which happened after Gonterman's. His Sergeant and Lieutenant signed off, agreeing to this, but the foul, hypocrite, liar Major Gonterman hypocritically signed off, disapproving of this, in an attempt to overturn this decision. We consider this amazing, considering that Gonterman's repair and replacement forms were only signed off on by Robert Huntsman, and Gonterman was not held negligent, or financially responsible for his weapon. To make this worse, Gonterman also was the only one who hypocritically signed off on former Officer Sheldon's form, overriding three other supervisors who said Sheldon was not negligent, nor should he be held financially responsible.
Fancy that, an Albuquerque Police Department Major, with a history of malfeasance, and bad behavior, has the balls to override determinations deeming officers not at fault for their actions in an incident, in order to punish them for doing more right than he did in the same situation. Not only that, but Gonterman had two firearms stolen. One was a high capacity rifle. His hatch was not locked. His vehicle vault was not locked, and his one weapons is worth almost more than all of the other weapons combined. You could say Gonterman went out of his way to fuck up this time. But again, nothing is done.
We here at the Eye would like to know why? Why is the ineptness of the Brass of APD constantly swept under the rug. Why is it okay that these guns are out on the streets, and why is this administration doing everything it can to make sure it keeps a lid on this behavior? We want to know why these idiots are not fired? We want to know why these clowns are not held accountable, but instead are rewarded with promotions.
Attached, are the documents below so that you can see for yourself the blatant hypocrisy, unfairness, lies, covering, baseless excuses, and disparity in treatment that is going on.
Where are you Gorden Eden and Mayor Berry. You two are nothing but failures, liars and cowards who protect those who do your dirty work.
In light of the recent DoJ report stating that the administration of APD uses "Covert Special Orders to Subvert the policies agreed to," KOB NEWS reports that APD only "still has some work to do" and that the federal monitor only "expresses some concerns." We say... GIVE US A FUCKING BREAK! You blind bats must have not read the entire report, and you think the public can not get their hands on it, so they thin slice it, and pick out the mediocre parts, skipping right over the actual contempt of federal court issues, stated in this report, or the outright accusations of intentionally obstructing the process? We see right though it, and we are shining the light. The way we see it, landscapers, and auto mechanics only have some work to do. These motherfuckers have some prison to go to.
As all of this unravels, this administration continues to play games, while covering up the issues above. We think it is a real issue when through negligence, a ranking person in a police department puts high powered weapons out into an already out of control, and violent environment, endangering the welfare of it's residents, who already doubt the effectiveness, and competency of it's police force. It is even more egregious, when this was not this fools first rodeo. Another point to ponder is that this person's wife is the Jodi Gonterman, the homicide detective who botched the investigation into a homicide, that caused an innocent man to spend 10 months in jail, and District Attorney Kari Brandenburg to drop the charges after a private eye uncovered what Gonterman had done. This prompted the former suspect's grandfather to say that Gonterman should be investigated for perjury, subornation of perjury and intimidation of witnesses. She allegedly decided early on in the investigation that that Donovan Maez and Cruz were guilty, and then got witnesses to say things that supported her theory. We here at the Eye have been saying that this has been the culture among the brass of APD for a long time. You can read the Abq. Free Press article in it's entirety here:
