Some Police Shootings are in Question; This One Is Not


APD’s most recent police shooting is legitimate. The Eye has taken an in-depth look into this case and the facts are undisputable. Our Eyes tell us that APD Officer James Purdue is one of the best; if not the best Officer in APD. Our Eyes tell us that Purdue is a mature, rational and seasoned officer. One senior high ranking retired APD officer stated, “Purdue’s background prior to and his service to APD and the community is impeccable! ‘I would trust Purdue with my life.’” There is not a story here in regard to illegal or inappropriate actions or behaviors on behalf of APD.

The incident occurred when 31 year old Michael Marquez, who was wanted for several violent armed robberies, was located and surrounded by police. Marquez has a long history of violent behavior. Below is a small list of facts concerning this violent felon and this incident:

• Convicted triple felon
• Convicted child rapist (14 year old girl)
• Convicted car thief
• Convicted of drug possession
• Registered sexual offender
• Armed with a stolen loaded military type assault weapon
• Felon in possession of a firearm
• A member of the violent Sureno’s 13 gang

Marquez should have been in a “comfy prison cell” in the Santa-Fe, New Mexico State Penitentiary. Marquez dictated the actions of police contrary to his brothers’ statement to a Journal photographer (read it here); “Bill Marquez, the suspect’s brother, told a Journal photographer that just because someone is a criminal does not mean they ‘should be treated like an animal.’” It is deploring and an insult for Marquez’s brother to compare this violent fleeing felon and child rapist to the innocents of an animal. The only truth to the Bill Marquez statement by proxy is; Michael Marquez was a criminal and chose how he wanted to be treated.

Michael Marquez was a criminal living a life of crime. There are consequences for violent criminal behavior; Marquez finally paid the price. When Marquez chambered a live round in his assault rifle while surrounded by police; what did he think was really going to happen? He knew there would be response and consequences for his actions. The victims that Marquez shoved a gun on and threaten and the 14 year old girl who Marquez raped; may now be able to start the healing process, knowing that Marquez is no longer a threat to them or anyone else.

Sidebar On the Channel 7 News, Schultz was bumbling and did not make any sense. We believe he was trying to say; the officers were familiar with the sound of a live round of ammunition being chambered into a firearm. Sidebar End

The Eye offers condolences’ to the family. No one wants to see another person die. Officer Purdue acted accordingly to stop the actions of an armed violent felon, Michael Marquez. Officer Purdue prevented Michael Marquez from hurting another human being.

The Eye believes this was clearly a legitimate and bona fide use of force. The Eye is positive that Purdue took no joy in having to terminate another person’s life; Purdue was only performing the job he was hired to do, “serve, protect and defend.” Marquez will no longer be a menace to society.

Wow. About the comments from Marquez's brother about being treated like an animal, does anyone agree that during the motel robbery it appears that Marquez himself is leading the victim around by his shirt collar "like an animal" WITH A GUN TO THE BACK OF HIS HEAD!

You act like a rabid animal, you get treated like a rabid animal

Eye,

You have to come out with your own OP ED piece to confront the Journal September 2 2011 endorsment of Schultz to continue as chief. We need the Eye and others to stand up and end Schultz's tenure as the worst chief in APD history. I just don't think that the city has enough money in the bank to cover more lawsuits created by Schultz.

Ok, how do I put this without sounding like Trey Economides or Pete Dwyer?
Yea, maybe there were some cases of police shootings that were questionable, but this damn sure ain't one of them. If you cannot obey direct orders from police officers and act like a total asshole, then you are just too damn fucking dumb to live, period, not to mention the ass hole things he's already done. And this inbreed has kids? He and the rest of society are better off with this RAPE-R prick dead, and that includes his illiterate family who claims that APD should have dealt with him differently. What? WTF??
Hey family ass holes, got news for you.
If I'm a cop guess what; I make damn sure I go home to my family, not the other way around. You lose, he's gone, TO HELL, where the rest of you dumb ass illiterate family members belong. Please for society's sake, don't do any more breeding. Get vasectomys. (That means fixed like a cat or castrated)

Where's Lynette?
We sure enjoy your scoldings. Got any words for our 'Eeyore' looking mayor?
Surly you can't think he's innocent in all of this.
He still thinks that Ray & Darren are honorable men.
Wow!

The Journal has an editorial in today's paper that is laughable. Obviously this fish wrapper continues to back city hall. 9:49 poster: terrific comment - spot on!

In reference to Friday's editorial, if this is what APD looks like with an effective chief, I'd hate to think what things would look like with somebody incompetent...

If you are a police officer (which I sure hope you aren't) please know that it is things written in your ridiculous post that make taxpayers and citizens like myself cringe. Keep your nasty rants to yourself because it is people like you that destroy the credibility of good, well-mannered cops!!!

Speak for yourself, Marshmellow. I am a civilian citizen and I agree 250% with poster @ Sept 2, 2011 - 9:49 am! Pull your cringing head out of your ass and have a good close look at reality. These people are dangerous. They would eat your cringing heart for breakfast, and not politely. Now eat your buckwheats and go back to Disneyland.

Why do family members get to be interviewed after their Lil hito or carnale get whacked by the professional members of APD, BCSO or NMSP? And the dead guy was always a good guy. It's disgusting what the Journal will print to sell papers. I cancelled my subscription. Whenever someone needs help they call the POLICE. The Police act and at times people get killed, but it is almost always the fault of the person not doing as ordered. Just drop what you have in your hands and do as your are told. It's not that difficult. The problem here is that there is absolutely no RESPECT for Law enforcement.

I completely agree. Most "civilians" don't understand the decisions police officers are faced with in such situations. Personally, I'm proud and grateful to live in a city where our poice officers don't hesitate to kill people who threaten the public safety. Let it be a lesson to those thinking about a life of crime in the city of Albuquerque. Anyone who complains can put a badge and gun on and try it their way. They're going to be in for a shock. So much for your idealistic and ignorant view of society.

... No one wants to see another person die....The Eye believes this was clearly a legitimate and bona fide use of force....

While some use of deadly force is undoubtedly legitimate ALL USES OF FORCE ARE UNDER REVIEW BECAUSE THE POLICE DEPARTMENT IS TAINTED WITH LIARS AND CORRUPT INDIVIDUALS.

A local TV station
http://www.kob.com/article/stories/S2027574.shtml
reported that Curtis Robinson was Tased to death in June 2010 after "Police say they witnessed Curtis Robinson, 34, slamming his 3-year-old girl against the dashboard of a car he had just crashed. When they tried to intervene, he put up a fight so they Tased him.

He died the next day. Medical investigators ruled that Robinson had died from cocaine intoxication, though the exact manner of death was never issued."

Where is the medical exam of the little girl allegedly injured in that case? The cops regularly LIE to cover misconduct, and they CONSPIRE with each other to cover crimes they commit.
