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.

APD'S WAR ON WIVES
For as long as we can remember, the Albuquerque Police Department has had massive problems with "nature at play" issues. Long before APD's former Ex police employee in exile and coward Raymond D. Schultz uttered those three words, there were rumors of pervert wife swapping swinger parties, now retired police sergeants beating up APD Deputy Chief's for sleeping with their wives, even though they were all swinging, and marital strife as a result of it. Many times it has become a problem, affecting the department, as when suicides result from it, as in the case of that little creep Fernando. Often, when both parties are employed as police officers, it creates a ripple effect on the department, when the parties are taken out of the manpower pool, due to administrative reassignments, restraining orders, terminations, and the need to be out of the workplace through use of leave time as a result of negative domestic issues.
One thing has remained steady through the many domestic violence incidents that have plagued the Albuquerque Police Department through the years. The punks accused as suspects in these incidents have all been covered for. The cases have either been totally swept under the rug administratively, with no action taken on the offending parties, or nothing was done at all. They have allowed the offenders to resign, then took no action on their New Mexico Law Enforcement Certification, so that they may later seek employment as a police officer down the line, after it all blows over. High ranking administrators and politicians who are connected to some of these defendants have actually stalled investigations, delayed findings, and worked hard to get some of these people over the goal line time-wise, so that they can purchase the time they need to save their pension, and retire early. Great, isn't it.
But what do they do for the guys on the inside, who are politically connected, and vested in their pension, but will lose everything should they be charged and convicted? Well.... we will show you.
You see, back on 1/31/16, at 3AM officers were called to the home of APD officer Matthew Trahan in reference to a domestic violence incident. Officer Trahan did not call. The woman who was allegedly beaten senseless, to the point that she had to run out of the house with her bare feet and PJ's on did not call 911, but apparently she called her friend, Bonnie Briones, who is also her coworker. You see, the victim was a cop. The listed victim in this matter was Santana Padilla, the fiancé of Matthew Trahan; also a cop, and both with APD.
Looking through the reports, you can see that Officer Briones stated that her friend Padilla frantically called her, stating that she had her ass beaten, and needed to be picked up. Lieutenant Simmons was called out, along with several other officers miles away from where the incident occurred. This was not just some bullshit call. Friends do not come at 3AM to pick you up in your PJ's, while your head is split open, and your eyes are bleeding for no reason.
Apparently, Lieutenant Simmons did the right thing, and had this investigated, which resulted in having Trahan summonsed into court on domestic violence charges. But there is a problem. The aggravated domestic violence charge could, and should have resulted in a charge that night. You see, Trahan is a police officer, and dispatch has his contact information. The reason given for not contacting Trahan because he lived outside of the area command of the responding officer is nonsense. Notice that nowhere is it stated that the two of these individuals are police officers, not even as the reason for calling Internal Affairs in the reports. All references to them being officers were kept out of the reports.
There is a very big problem here, because someone is a liar.
Supervisors stated in their reports that the victim Santana's injuries were not consistent with what she said happened. These supervisors also stated that the victim was uncooperative. Well guess what? As a police officer, you do not get to be uncooperative in any investigation, and because of that, either a statement is given at internal affairs or it is not. If a statement is refused, it is instant termination.
This situation is disturbing in many ways, because it draws in another officer who is a supposed friend of Santana. This officer / witness stated Santana told her Trahan kicked and punched her, injuring her head, causing injuries with lacerations and swelling to her head, and blood filled eye whites. This put Officer Briones on the spot, because she is required to report this, which she did. Santana's statement that nothing happened, and she hit her head on a shoe rack essentially makes a liar out of Briones, if the crime was not committed as Briones states she was told. If the crime did occur, it makes Trahan a liar. If the crime did not occur, then Santana is a liar. EITHER WAY.... SOMEONE IS A LIAR. We do not believe Briones would make something like this up.
Another glaring similarity in these APD, officer involved domestic violence cases is the subject of the alleged perpetrator always being accused of crying, then claiming they will commit suicide because of what happened, or if their wives or girlfriends leave them. This is a problem, because who wants an unstable, suicidal, crybaby responding to their home, when they need the police for help.
Currently our Eyes tell us that Matthew Trahan is on administrative reassignment until this blows over. His court case resulted in dismissal upon him completing some court ordered hoop jumping like anger classes and no drinking.
It is obvious that all of the players in these cases know exactly how to work the angles to avoid losing their jobs through a domestic violence conviction. Truthfulness is another matter though, when you bring other innocent parties into the fold, like friends and co-workers. This is where the buck should stop, if you want to be a liar. Seeing that the internal investigation into this matter is completed thoroughly and competently, SOMEONE WILL BE FIRED FOR UNTRUTHFULNESS.
Incidents like the above need to be taken seriously, investigated without bias, or favoritism, and either cleared as unfounded, or founded with punishments being doled out evenly, and fairly. This is not happening. As a matter of fact, studies condemning fraternization and such behavior have been trashed by the APD administration over the years and it continues to be concealed.
Wives do not have their heads spontaneously concussed. They do not have their noses mysteriously broken by unseen forces. There is no invisible man going around putting the heads of APD housewives through the drywall. Someone is doing this, and we know exactly who.
Below are some of the case files on the Michael and Joanne Shook case from 3/9/16. You can clearly see that Joanne Shook was arrested on the spot when she was merely accused of pushing her husband, who was an APD detective. Observe the disparity in the way these cases were handled considering the allegations and physical evidence.
Our Eyes have told us that no LEA90's were filed at the New Mexico Law Enforcement Academy Board on any of the defendants in these cases.... Unless of course you are the WIFE. Our Eyes have also told us that Lt. Simmons may have faced negative feedback from the brass for taking action against Trajan. We know Veronica Ficke faced administrative retaliation from those within APD, when she pressed charges on her husband who was an APD sergeant. Sedler's wife was forced to work with his mistress and with him still intact as a police officer. Joanne Shook was arrested on the spot and one wife is deceased while the clown involved in that incident has been promoted.
It is evident that the culture within APD is derogatory towards the rights of women. Certain people are protected by all means. The more this administration lies and conceals from the public and the DoJ, the more the chance of reform takes a shit right in front of us. Nothing will change until all of the dishonorable cowards and liars are rooted out and forced to kick rocks. APD BRASS SAYS IT IS OKAY FOR THEIR FEMALE OFFICERS TO HAVE THEIR HEADS CAVED IN IN MYSTERIOUSLY UNEXPLAINED WAYS. WE HERE AT THE EYE SAY IT IS NOT!
