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.

Anonymity: A Fair Question

The Eye received a post by Ched MacQuigg asking us to "please respond to the wmqb's (Wednesday Morning Quarterback) observation that [we] blog anonymously." We believe that the question of Anonymity is a fair one, and frankly we try to answer all of the questions directed our way. The simple answer is the appalling way the city treats whistleblowers. Sergeant Cynthia Orr and Captain Marie "Sisi" Miranda (the two APD officers that courageously blew the whistle on the evidence room) know exactly what it's like when uncomfortable truths are revealed (See Our Post From December 16th). In some cases, the whistleblower is even accused of a crime that destroys their career even when they are exonerated. Our anonymity adds one more layer of protection to our sources, some of whom risk more than just their jobs.

The Eye is interested in what goes on behind the scenes in this city. That includes any large governmental agency and APS. Anonymity provides us with a way to observe administrators and public officials in their more candid moments. There may come a time when The Eye is unveiled, until then we will continue to work to verify all of the facts that come our way with multiple sources and/or supporting documentation.

On that note... If you've got something that you'd like The Eye to look into you can contact us at

Ched, thanks for your question and keep'em coming!

Put your name on anything here and APD will fabricate an investigation into your "criminal activity" that same day. Wake up, have you not been reading what goes on in this city.

Silence by honorable people on what takes place at City Hall will be the demise of this city. If you stand up, tell the truth and expose injustices here,you wind up in the 'Open Space'; very much like those soldiers who were sent to the Russian Front or Siberia during the war.Hitler,Stalin and Musselini all fell,not because they were liked as heros, but because they were despised by their own friends and had to be disposed of.
