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 DC Allen Banks Gets Embarrassed While Laughing at APD Shooting

One of our Eyes sent us the two still photos that are at the bottom of this story. We are told that the photos were taken from KOB TV Channel 4’s original video from May 5, 2011 (view it here). An APD officer shot and killed an Albuquerque man who police thought was armed. The investigation later showed that the man shot was armed with a black spoon. Banks was at the scene talking to Chief Schultz.

APD’s Chief of Police Ray Schultz tells Deputy Chief Allen Banks something; Banks breaks out into laughter at whatever Jester Shultz said. Banks then put his hand over his face in what appears to be embarrassment. When a citizen dies at the hand of police, rather it is justified or not; it is not dignified to laugh. We are sure the Gomez family found absolutely no humor in this undignified act.

The Eye was told KOB Channel 4 edited the laughter out of the video. If you view the video; watch between 2:15 and 2:20, the video shows Schultz and Banks standing in the street next to a police car. The still photos show the comedy show that was edited out by KOB Channel 4.

To add insult to injury, one of our Eyes told us that while a family member of the victim was being held in a police car, “Chief Schultz had a donut party…Laughing…” This is disgraceful and hideous.

Ray Schultz wants to stay as Chief and Allen Banks wants to stay as Deputy Chief or even Chief some day, really? Try respecting the citizens of Albuquerque and show respect for the dead; you have both dishonored and disgraced the badge.

Do we have a real Mayor in Albuquerque? A Mayor who takes care of business and does not hide? We already had a lousy Mayor who was invisible; we do not need another Saavedra. The biggest shame of all falls on Berry for his lousy decisions; all those he selected for top City positions.

The Eye means no disrespect and apologizes to the family for having to bring this story to light; however, the citizens of Albuquerque need to be educated as to what their “leaders” are doing.

Wow. Are your kidding me EYE. As police officers who deal with the Bad and the Ugly side of society on a daily basis, unlike firefighters whom everyone loves, sometimes we have to laugh to get rid of stress. The Critical Indicent Stress Management (CISM) indicates laughter is the best medicine. Maybe untasteful on scene, but it seems channel 4 (haters of LEO) are looking to put anything out to discredit the PD.

Remember Rick Foley and now Christina Rodda from channel 4. They look for ways to trash police.

That is the sort of behavior that makes me reluctant to ask for police for help for any reason. It certainly indicate a callous disregard for any non-police life. APD is more frightening to me than Albuquerque's criminals. How can Albuquerque's citizens trust APD?

Anonymous said...

The first post is correct, cops are human and cannot possibly internalize the mayhem they work in. Officers stuck for hours at a scene will intern discuss things that have nothing to do with the crime scene they are at. Maybe someone mentions the bad Chinese food they had last night. Its no big deal at all. Its juvenile to expect officers to stand there looking depressed and morose at a crime scene. Now, that said,,, if an officer out sergeant did this, Schultz would at least get him a letter of reprimand.

Anonymous said...

Excuse me, the only thing stressful in Bank's stupid career is getting away with a 47 45 and chasing women online. I'll extend some latitude to rank and file. But to supervisors, commanders, and chiefs? No fucking way. They don't model the behavior they want to see so you get what you get. And this is by far NOT the last time that idiot was inappropriate at a scene......

RAY.... EYE know what you did and what you were doing while you were away.

Banks neither dishonored nor discraced his badge and for you to represent that he did should take away much of the credibility that you might have earned among the blue suiters in this town. Grow up "Eye" and stop writing about non-story "stories" such as this. This may very well be your "Jump the Shark" moment". I strongly feel that you owe DC Banks an apology for this.

Reference: Banks neither... That's interesting; we were thinking that Banks should publically apologize to the Gomez family. Just sayin'...

post Who cares? The rest of the citizen's know this type of behavior is unacceptable and so do you.

Here is another thought; maybe the family of the deceased care. Apparently you have no respect for the dead either.

Anonymous said...

Even though I think schultz is dispicable - I can say that I worked in a hospital with lots of sad and bad things happening and our conversations had nothing to do with the goings on. If you succumbed to every horrible thing that happened you wouldn't be able to do your job. However, perhaps with camera's everywhere people should be more careful about their behavior. I wouldn't doubt it if schult (the ass) made a derogatory remark about the deceased.

FYI:
Ray is preparing a 'White paper' for City Council Monday night, that essential says it was Marty Chavez' orders to him that has lead to the events of recent.
Really Ray, Marty's orders to you back then are (after almost two years) are finally coming to fruition.
Who's gonna buy that 'bilge water'?
You were and still are the Chief after two years. If the orders given to you were not in your mind righteous, why then two years later are you blaming him? Why have you not done an about face and right those orders?

Ahhh. Ray my boy, this doesn't fool a Corleone.

Yes, I can see where this might be construed as insensitive or shameful; on the other hand, I'm glad that the scum is getting shoveled off our streets like the garbage they are.
Yes in some cases the families of those criminals do have some sympathy and respect coming, however, maybe they have been the problem all along and maybe the breeders of these Beelzebubs should have considered vasectomies.

Wow! I just thought of something about the behavior and how any citizen even a non-participant can file a complaint with the IRO that has no direct or indirect connection on the incident described in your blog about Schultz and Banks! Gee! I bet now that the IRO agreed to take Perry's complaint on White that there is going to be hundreds if not thousands of complaints filed via a letter and not official documentation over concern to investigate an incident! Deaton get ready to accept a ton of paperwork of complaints from "citizens" that had nothing to do with the police officer or incident in question! Looks like Deaton opened up a can of worms! I hope Deaton can turn around in a week or two a report from the tons of complaints which most certainly will occur now that Deaton agreed to take Perry's citizen complaint on an incident Perry had nothing to do with! I guess too that co-workers can request an investigation by the IRO, too now! Ha! What a joke Deaton is! Deaton violated the City spirit and intent of who can file a citizen complaint!

Anonymous said...

Everybody concerned about the behavior of Schultz and Banks laughing at the crime scnene after the death of a citizen can file a complaint to the IRO and have the IRO investigate! You don't have to be an actual participant, a witness, a party or have any direct involvement in the police you are complaining about. Just be a concerned citizen looking for the IRO to investigate. I really believe that City Councilman Sanchez is correct when he stated that the IRO, Deaton, had no legal right to investigate Perry's complaint because Perry had no actual involvment in the Officer he was complaining about. I'm kidding when I say to file a complaint on Schultz and Banks! Seriously, how stupid does Deaton think the public is? Deaton needs to resign as IRO! Schultz needs to resign and so does Paiz!

Please do not make fools of yourselves by childish, four word

angry, uneducated and nasty people without credibility. The problem is far to serious. YES, eye I believe that Banks should apologize, a true professional would never behave that way! Above all don't lower yourselves to
their level. Many many folks are watching. If you come off like a bunch of high school kids, who can take you seriously.

It is important to recognize that
wrong is wrong no matter who the offender is.

You are all so cloose to making a difference, don't mess it up with
petty comments.

My thanks as an everyday citizen for all that APD and AFD does to keep us safe.... But please take the high road, so that your comments will not sound like a bunch of bickering neighbors.

Everyone needs to stand behind Al Walck, like him or not. He is the only one that is going to take a fall here. The I.R.O. report states he lied. That means termination. Al's chain of command has already started a seperate investigation on Walck for taking to long on a call. THIS COULD BE YOU ! Trish Hoffman was not even mentioned in the I.R.O.'S report, even thou she was at the union meeting asking for representation because of her involvement. Everyone, Police , Fire, and Citizens need go to the next City Council meeting and demand a criminal investigation then an administration investigation by an outside agency. A.P. D. AND A.F.D. are bleeding and no one cares what the corrupt chain of command has to say or we even follow orders any longer. Think about this, what would of happened TO YOU, if you were seen laughing at a death scene. If we all dont stand up now, this will all be swept under the rug. Al Walck will be fired and this corruption will just go on and on. YOU MAY BE THE NEXT TARGET. YOU WILL STAND ALONE AND GO DOWN ALONE A VICTIM OF THE ADMINISTRATION HIT SQUAD, THE I.R.O. AND INTERNAL AFFAIRS.

When that happens, don't question it, as it will be God's response to your ignoring him.
Change your ways before it's too late. You cannot continue living like this. For some it just may be possible, for others it may be too late. Make amends Darren to those that you have wronged.
Do you have a conscience or don't you? If the answer is no, then my God help you.
For those who support you or those who sit silent, may God help you as well.

Let's see if all you cops stick by Al and support him or if you ostracize him, help with the retaliation and kick him to the curb like you did my brother (Sam Costales). Let's see where your integrity really is on the scale. Time after time you all sit back and watch. If you're not part of the solution you're part of the problem. I'm sure I'll get responses with Sam was lazy, sued everyone, etc. At least he did the right thing, fought back and WON! You all attacked him because he told the truth about other cops. I watched the whole trial and half of the rank sat on the witness stand and lied. One lie leads to another and eventually they all contradicted each other. It was hilarious. Ray's face when the verdict was read - Priceless! There are some really wonderful cops out there and I respect you, but there are also some real bad apples. Eventually, Darren and Ray will get what they have coming. Word for the day - Karma!

Do yourself a huge favor Berry and the rest of you so called good 'R's, alienate yourselves from Darren White. I'm very disappointed in those who admitted that Darren is and I quote,
" a scum bag and a liar" yet are sitting silent and now are defending him because they won't 'Man Up" and do the right thing.

Sunday Journal:
Darren's filing a complaint with the State and Dept.of Health is about as valid as the recent IRO report released Friday.
You weren't exonerated in the EYEs of the public. This report was bogus and you(they) know it. It was a rush job by Perry to get it done asap so no other agency will re- do it.
Darren's quest to find out the truth about WHO released the medical reports of 'Peaches' to the press wasn't AFD, rather it be someone sitting right next to you for the past two years. That's right your own best friend.
Which doesn't say a whole lot given the fact that your friendship these day consist of what one holds over the other, or holds dirt on you as vice- versa.

I see the censorship is alive and well on this forum. Can't be pissing off APD can we now. I also note that the EYE didn't run a post on the IRO report. Why, because it finds the officer at the scene failed to fulfill his duties and failed to file a timely report yet everyone is mum. Interesting. Hey Eye, when Schultz is finally run out of town (which he should be especially after his "there is no probable cause" comment) what can we expect beyond anti-Berry bashing (again, deserved)?

Just like they did for TJ Wilham, Berry and Perry are already working a deal for Darren. They're going to offer him a settlement before he files some bogus BS lawsuit about his THIRD wife's records being released (didn't Rob Perry released those at that press conference???). Will the payoff be large enough to buy all of White's time back in PERA so he can really retire?????
