A new addition to what we should have put up first. The below photo was posted to APD’s Facebook page on 1/8/18.
Trek knew and they lied. Notice the RRPD patch. Did they think nobody would have spotted that.
Does anyone remember a few weeks ago where Shaun Willoughby stated that the Albuquerque Police Department will take the best and brightest officers from other New Mexico police departments who do not pay competitively? WE DO. This must be what he is talking about.
It seems that either APD thinks that rehiring officers who were terminated for negligently firing their duty weapons, while impaired with alcohol is ok, or someone in background investigations at APD did not do their job.
Back in 2008 there was an incident in the SW where shots were fired and officers were dispatched. It gets a little muddy because we heard a few versions where there was and there wasn’t evidence the firearm in question was not fired. What is odd was how it was stated that it appeared to be unfired, but there were multiple gunshots in the area and no mention of the magazine count of the ammunition in the officer’s duty weapon. We are working on obtaining witness statements. Below is the criminal complaint and a link to the story.
KOAT ARTICLE ON APD ALCOHOL VIOLATIONS
For the record though, the officer, Ana Bruciaga was terminated in her probationary period for being intoxicated, and in possession of a firearm. The case was dumped for some reason after a deal was reached. Below are the case notes.
Today, our Eyes have notified us that Ana Bruciaga is now in the APD lateral hire class under the name Ana Lujan. We wonder if she gets another hiring bonus.
The irony in this is simply amazing considering the amount of officers who were railroaded, and plowed under over the years, for doing their jobs while actually on duty. This is yet again another example of how poor behavior is constantly rewarded.
Mrs. Lujan is a lateral from Rio Rancho PD where she has been working as a police officer since receiving a slap on the wrist for her actions in 08.
Is this how bad it is now? Someone needs to widen minds around here on the fact that candidates and potential lateral officers know what a shit hole whore house APD has become. They know who is still there and they are not going to risk their lives taking employment where inmates are running the asylum.
Chief Geiger can only do so much with complete idiots below him and an administration above him saddling him with political hacks.
It is not about the money folks. Get it through your heads. No officer wants to work with imbeciles or better yet, imbecile who are protected, rewarded, and promoted to be their supervisor. That is a fact.
It is going to be a long road to fixing things here if this is going to continue. And if the administration is going to do this, they need to audit all of the terminations since.
Now... on the lighter side, we were told that jelly donut that the mayor hired as the deputy chief Harold Medina, recently attended a community meeting and the citizens had two complaints. One... he was so fat... and two... they didn’t even know if he was a man or a woman.
HA HA HA... JUST HA HA HA... NOW THAT IS FUNNY!
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.
