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. Compliments of one of our Eyes

Is the Mayor a "Berry Good Liar?"

The Eye received the open letter below from Senior Sergeant Paul Heh (Ret). Apparently there is more to story we have yet to hear. Some say the “eyes are the window to the soul.” If this is true; we will be looking a lot deeper into Berry’s the next time we run into Mayor Berry…We all Know how much this Mayor loves our "Eyes."

To Mayor Richard Berry:

I have tried several times after the election to speak to you regarding concerns I have. You refused to speak to me, stating, “you were simply too busy.” I understand hectic schedules. I worked for APD for over 24 years. I worked from 10:00 p.m. to 8:00 a.m., and then often times spent the entire day in court, only to come home and sleep for an hour, at most. Well guess what Mayor, I am retired and have all the time in the world to email you this letter.

As I am sure you remember I supported you when you were running for Mayor, when you told me you had no support. In case your memory has failed you, let me remind you of a few things: I made radio advertisements for you, I arranged “ride alongs” for you with officers of APD, I had several sit down meetings with you (sometimes weekly at Flying Star), we spoke at least three or four times a week by telephone. I rallied support for you from APD (AGAINST the endorsement of the APOA). I rallied support for you from AFD (long time supporters of Marty Chavez). I rallied support from various city employees. I rallied support for you from court employees, and even attorneys of all fields and party affiliations. I did this because I believed in what you told me. People voted for you because of what they were told, “what you stood for and what you believed in.”

You, Mr. Mayor, told me that upon your election the Chief of Police, Raymond Schultz, would be immediately replaced. In fact, you bolstered the fact that you would clean house from the fifth floor up. This was paramount in getting the support of the rank and file of the police department. Mr. Mayor to say you were disingenuous is a huge understatement and just a nice way of saying; YOU LIED!

The ink wasn't even dry on the ballots and you reappointed Raymond Schultz as Chief of Police. You told me that Public Safety was going to be your main concern and that ALL city employees were very important to you. You have made the Police Department, the Fire Department and City Employees your enemy. You have made a mockery out of Public Safety. You promised you would not fill the Public Safety Director position; you told me you felt it was a waste of taxpayer's dollars. This was a position you promised Darren White in August, three months before the election; yet, another one of your lies. Well Mr. Mayor, I feel you have made your position as Mayor a waste of taxpayer's dollars. I would ask you these questions: How did Darren White work out for you? How is Raymond Schultz working out for you?

You are destroying what I have dedicated 24 years of my life to, which had become a second family to me. I cannot sit silent and watch the good men and women of The Albuquerque Police Department suffer under your inept lack of leadership. In my opinion Mr. Mayor, you have no ethics, no integrity, and you, Mr. Mayor, are without any honor. If you would like to dispute what I have said here, I will happily meet you in any public forum of any time and place. Until then, take a long look in the mirror. That is your soul looking back at you; are you happy with what you see? You can lie, spin, and twist, but your soul knows the truth. Luckily for the citizens of Albuquerque and the members of APD and AFD, we are able to see the truth at last.

You will be hearing from me again Mr. Mayor. I will do everything in my power to make sure you do not get re-elected. I will not allow you to destroy APD, nor will I sit still and sit silent and watch you destroy the City of Albuquerque. If anyone wants to challenge me with what I have had to say, I will not answer anonymous challenges. I will meet anyone face to face in any public forum to answer their challenge.

Paul J. Heh
Senior Sergeant APD, (Ret.)

Nice letter. Lets not forget Fire Chief Breen, another Berry appointed position, was recently voted with " no confidence" by the department. Every decision that Berry has made concerning Public Safety for the people of Albuquerque has been the wrong one.

Way to put it Sgt Heh ! It appears you only have to possess a wicked tongue, fit for telling lies, to become the mayor or chief of police. People like you and I, are we naive to expect people to do as they say they will? I despise a liar. I have no respect what so ever for those who advance/profit from lies and duping others to believe them and help them do criminal acts. I applaud you Sgt Heh. As for RJ and Ray, you're not worth the flesh you were printed on.

I applaud you Sergeant Heh! Nice work.

Thank you for your 24 years of service.

See, this is what happens whenever you treat people poorly, run a crooked dept., and then the good guys finally get to retire and start spilling the beans! I love it! WTG Sgt Heh!

I'm not sure what the readership is of this blog, but these letters from former officers need to be made very public for all to see.

The media need's these letters. Every one of them. The people of Albuquerque need to know this..

With all sincerity let me say that I know and worked with Paul and Steve Tate (in regards your previous post) and found them to both be honest, moral individuals-

No one is universally liked on the dept. much like any other work place, and Im sure one or two posters willl say something negative - but these two guys are both right on the money with these recent articles-

Without rehashing what they have both said let me just point out that you have an organization where the only time people can comment using their own name is when they retire. That fear of the chief in itself should trouble all of you.
I myself am retired and do not currently work in any L/E capacity yet I still will not put my name to a comment here as Ray is notorious for vindictivness and has been since the early days of his career.
If in fact everything Paul has written here is true, and I have no reason to doubt it, then we are in a situation where there is no hope for any reasonable and honest person to lead, nor any end in sight for the worst leadership the Dept has endured since my early days almost 30 years ago.

This mayor and this chief make Sam Baca, Ken Shultz and Marty Chavez look good - at least with them you knew what you were getting and could find a way to work with it and get things done-

Not that Im paranoid about this guy but I actually post this from another person's computer so when the day comes that they pull IP addresses and go after us all I wont be targeted

Mayor Berry will never challenge your statements. Mayor Berry is liar and a coward.

Sgt. Heh, please keep fighting the good fight! Please send this to letter the Albuquerque Journal too. They won't print it but when they don't it will show their role and bias in this City Hall/5th floor farce.

LET'S GET ONE THING STRAIGHT RIGHT NOW.
PULLING IP ADDRESSES, IF IT CAN BE DONE AT ALL, IS ILLEGAL. THOSE THAT ATTEMPT TO PARTICIPATE AND DO SO WILL GO TO JAIL. IT IS A FEDERAL OFFENSE.
COMCAST USERS IP ADDRESSES TO THIS BLOG ARE ON A ROTATING BASIS CONTINUALLY. SO THE CHANCES, EVEN IF THEY DID SO ILLEGALLY, ARE SLIM TO NONE.
IF, AND I SAY IF, THEY ARE THAT STUPID, THEN THE OFFENDERS WILL BASICALLY TURN THE KEYS TO THE CITY OVER TO THOSE WHOSE FREE SPEECH WERE VIOLATED, AS THEY WILL IN FACT OWN THE CITY, THROUGH THE LAW SUITS THAT WILL IN FACT BANKRUPT THE CITY, AND PUT AT RISK THE ENTIRE BERRY ADMINISTRATION AND EVERYONE OF HIS GD MINIONS IN JAIL. IN THE END, IT WOULD BE A GREAT RETIREMENT PACKAGE; JUST ASK RAY COSTALES.

CONGRATULATIONS PAUL AND THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE. BESIDES YOUR REGULAR DUTIES OVER THE YEARS, YOU HAVE MANAGED TO GET 3-4,000 DWI CONVICTIONS IN THE PROCESS. THESE NUMBERS MAY BE LOW.
YOUR LETTER DESCRIBES MAYOR BERRY TO A TEE. HE IS NOT ONLY A LIAR, BUT AN INCOMPETENT AS WELL. ASK ANYONE IN THE CONSTRUCTION BUSINESS IN THIS TOWN AND THEY WILL TELL YOU HE CAN'T READ A BLUE PRINT FROM THE INGREDIENTS FROM THE BACK OF A BOX OF CRACKER JACKS. IS IT ANY WONDER WHY HE SOUGHT THE HELP OF THE THREE BIGGEST CON ARTISTS IN THE CITY; WHITE, CAMPBELL AND SCHULTZ?
MR. BOY SCOUT, MR. NICE GUY, MR. HONOR AND INTEGRITY. MY ASS.

This guy is a one time wonder.
This guy is a disgrace, just like that super flaming a-hole Darren.

REPUBLICANS; ARE YOU PROUD OF THIS FRAUD?

YOU REALLY DIDN'T THINK HE COULD WIN. MANY THAT I'D SPOKEN TO HOPE THAT HE WOULDN'T. WELL GUESS WHAT, OH SHIT, HE WON. NOW WHAT. WELL THE 'NOW WHAT' IS HERE AND IT'S A HUGE EMBARRASSMENT FOR SURE.

RJ, like what you're reading here with your breakfast? choke on it.
You deserve what you get for doing what you did to those who supported you.
27 years for the Republicans to finally take back City Hall, and you managed to give it back to the Democrats in 27 MINUTES.

HEY JOURNAL! PRINT THESE LETTERS IN THE OP-ED
IT'S FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND THERE IS NOTHING INAPPROPRIATE ABOUT THEM.

DO YOUR JOB.

There's 1000 people who could write the exact same letter about Berry that Paul did. What a lying SOS this guy turned out to be.

Only thing I would add to Paul's letter is that during the campaign Berry at least pretended to listen. Now if you can get any time with him all he does is talk. About himself.

A. Gates said...

Bravo Paul! I join you in your effort to ensure that Berry IS NOT re-elected.

Keep up the good fight, Paul. This city needs you. The great men and women of APD need you. And I have no doubt they will rally behind you to ensure that our great city can come back from this mess stronger and safer than ever before.

I admire your courage, your ethics, and your love for Albuquerque.

Now, GO GET 'EM!!!

Lets face it, APD needs to be cleaned from Lt up. I don't think DOJ is going to be of any help and most of us are Officers and can't do anything without repercussions. Thanks Paul as usual for stepping up.

I will admit Schultz looked very very stressed on tv and I don't care at all. I guess that comes from his hands being tied for so long you loose circulation.

Happy RJ? Your honeymoon is over. Come election time, do us all a favor and step aside. Let another Republican take on the Democrat that would otherwise kick your ass. I, along with at least 100 others with deep pockets will remove you from office.

Mayor Berry, you could have steered this ship in the right direction a while back. You should have done a 180 when that douche bag women Darren tucked tail and ran like the pussy he is. At that point you should have dumped Schultz and became a leader. It's too late babe, you ran the ship aground.

YOU'RE A LAME DUCK.

Enjoy the next two years. you deserve what you get. Then again, you own all the shit that is about to come down because of your inaction as you really don't possess the skills for this job. You sir are an empty suit with possess no knowledge of the game your in.

Quite a few people terminated the last week and a half or so right? Guess who Schultz can't fire. Paul Heh! You have earned the right to speak your mind Sgt Heh. Puppet master ray never got his strings on you, did he? He does have them tightly wrapped around the necks of his dc's, most of his commanders, the money and job holders, all the lieutenants who would like to be promoted, and so on and so forth. I'm surprised there is enough room on the 5th floor for so many air filled bobble heads. Everyone in those high positions are only worried about themselves. Who, what, when and where they can get away with as much as they can. Sucking the life out of that department. Question is, whose what are their lips tightly wrapped around and where the sub during which shaft......I mean shift. Wrong vowel. Guess a slip of a finger can happen to anyone.

Maybe, just maybe a whole new breed of cat needs to be placed in this department. It will take an Elliott Ness, to clean up this cesspool. Promote the cream of the crop and let real honest cops who have been kept down like Paul Hey and Steve Tate take over.
In other words evaluate everyone from Sergeant and above and fire or early retire everyone from Captain and above. It's obvious to me that those upper ranks are now tainted and corrupt. Darren certainly was the breeder of this culture and it now shows. Congratulation Mr. Berry, you left two bad apples in place and now the barrel is rotten. Man you are not and never were capable of governing this city.

TALK ABOUT BACK STABBING... THIS GUY TAKES THE CAKE. THIS GUY WALKS AROUND BRAGGING ABOUT BEING A SPECIAL FORCES SOLDIER WHEN HE WAS NOT! HE ALSO LIES ABOUT BEING A STATE POLICE LATERAL WHEN HE WAS NOTHING BUT A STATE INVESTIGATOR. THERE IS NOTHING LIKE STRIKING LIKE A SHARK WHEN SOMEONE IS HURT. AYE, JESSE. I'LL TELL YOU WHAT JESSE, KEEP TALKING ABOUT DWYER IN FRONT OF OTHER COPS. THAT'S RIGHT BUD. WE ALL HEARD YOU SAY THAT YOU WERE GLAD THAT HE WAS FIRED. WE ALL HEARD YOU CALL HIM LAZY. WE ALL HEARD YOU LAUGHING ABOUT HE AND OTHER OFFICERS BEING TERMINATED AND HOW IT WAS SO GREAT FOR YOUR SENIORITY. I DON'T KNOW WHY THAT MATTERS, BECAUSE YOU WENT INSIDE AFTER ONLY 6 MONTHS ON THE STREET. EVERYONE KNOWS YOU ARE A POSER, A FAKE, AND A LIAR. THAT IS WHY SID TURNED YOU DOWN. EVERYONE IS CATCHING ON TO YOUR BS WAYS. KARMA IS A BITCH. THIS IS YOUR WAKEUP CALL MISTER CARTER. MAYBE YOU SHOULD START THE APOLOGIES OR THIS IS GOING TO GET WORSE. YOU NEVER KNOW WHEN SOMEONE IS GOING TO SHINE THE LIGHT ON YOU.

To the 3:52 post: You are absolutely right. I heard Buckner promised him a spot in Intell and the Marshall's spot was a stepping stone. DC Paiz beware and tell him to knock his shit off. Phone records show all I know that specific detective uses the same cell phone for everything.
