Gibbs acting childishly over a comment by a military veteran, Gibbs lashed out making an ugly and repulsive statement. Do you want this copper to show up at your home when you have a problem? What is he going to say to you to “help” solve your problem; “…eat a gun.” This guy is scary at a minimum; perhaps Gibbs is the one who needs a psychological evaluation? Posting this nasty comment on Facebook for the entire world to read is clearly unprofessional and conduct unbecoming an officer. Of course since Gibbs is one of Ray Ray’s boys, he will not face any disciplinary action where Schultz has fired other officers for violating his Facebook policy.
Most recently Gibbs was directing traffic for the UNM Graduation Ceremonies at the UNM Pit. Gibbs was standing in heavy traffic without a police reflective vest or a protective police helmet as was the other policemen who was with him (at least the other policemen was friendly). One may guess that Gibbs wanted to look “cool” while he was out there in traffic. At one point a pedestrian stated, “Boy, you guys are really busy!” To this statement Gibbs replied sarcastically and facetiously, “That’s UNM for you! Always prepared… ‘NOT!’” This was trashy and clearly uncalled for. What is the purpose of bashing UNM? As the spokesmen of APD let alone a field copper, Gibbs should act appropriately and professionally at all times. This guy needs training in customer service, in leadership and in ethical behavior. And perhaps a review of the PD’s rules and regulations that govern behavior and doing traffic control for the citizens.
Maybe Skotchdapol from the IRO’s office can go knock on Gibbs door and tell him he is a copper and intimidate him like Skotchdapol did with one of future Mayor, Paul Heh’s campaign workers. Mr. Skotchdapol, did you get a traffic citation “fixed” by someone from the City Attorney’s Office? It is illegal to tamper with a legal document, right?
