ALBUQUERQUE, NM — After the debate, RJ Berry and his out of town spin team threw out and published claims in response to his loss during this morning's KOB debate. The stunning "Berry Facts" (lies) include:

Here are the facts:

CLAIM: Crime is up in Albuquerque.
BERRY's "FACT": During Mayor Berry’s time in office, APD cracked down on property crimes and double the number of property crime arrests. Last year our city had 650 less auto thefts than the year before he took office. Furthermore, Albuquerque has seen the lowest FBI crime rates in the past 20 years. While violent crime has gone up all across the country, it has gone down in Albuquerque.

THE TRUTH: The FBI's own crime rate has been climbing since Berry took office. The FBI's own crime data shows that: Violent Crime is up 1.69%, Murder is up 7.89%, Robbery is up 9.42%, Property Crime is up 6.23%, Burglary is up 4.72%, Theft is up 11.93%. And while true, auto theft and arson are both down, this is a reflection of a decrease in the reports taken, not actual incidents. Remember, these numbers are based on actual reports taken. in fact, Berry's answer confirms the claim, if there were twice the number of property crime arrests, then there obviously an increase in property crime offenses.

CLAIM: Response times are down.
BERRY'S "FACT": According to city data, response times have actually decreased for Priority One calls that involve threats to life, shootings, stabbings, armed robberies and car jackings.

THE TRUTH: Temporary Chief Allen Banks openly confirmed that response times are up because of city policy. They have also increased out of design to help "cool officers down" as they respond to P1 calls. 

CLAIM: Pete Dinelli says he had nothing to do with a civil rights lawsuit that cost the city $1.7 million.
BERRY'S "FACT": The Safe City Strike Force, which Pete Dinelli oversaw, was so out of control that it cost the city a $1.7 million civil rights lawsuit.

THE TRUTH: Just this year alone, under the Berry administration the city lost a civil rights lawsuit and was order to pay over $10 Million due to the unlawful shooting of Ken Ellis, III. Over $55 Million has been paid by the Berry Administration because of APD misconduct cases and more are coming not to mention breach of contract suits with the city's very own employees.

CLAIM: Our Middle-Class is hurting.

BERRY'S "FACT": Pete Dinelli hurt the Middle-Class while he served on the City Council when he voted to raise taxes on food, gas and prescription drugs.

THE TRUTH: The middle class is shrinking while the working poor have grown in numbers and the wealthiest 5% have more. From his Holy Cross educated out of state campaign manger to the hiring of an out of state temp service to find an out of state chief, Berry sends precious domestic money out of state to out of state interests. His very own actions both personally and publicly are not consistent with his statements of being a good steward of our economy.

CLAIM: Mayor Berry used Sanctuary City as a wedge issue.

BERRY'S 'FACT': 84% of Albuquerque residents supported Berry's position on Sanctuary City, according to the Albuquerque Journal poll.

THE TRUTH: Berry's own position confirms it. He used the Sanctuary City and the mobile billboard as a device to "scare" people into thinking illegal aliens were overtaking out city. To this day, ICE rarely is even at the PTC.

CLAIM: APD is in a complete meltdown.

BERRY'S "FACT": Mayor Berry has enacted tough reforms during his time in office, helping turn around the department that Pete Dinelli oversaw. During Pete Dinelli's time in charge of the Albuquerque Police Department, he cost the city $1.7 million in a civil rights lawsuit.

THE TRUTH: APD is at staffing levels as low as they were almost two decades ago in the 1990's, is being investigated by the DOJ, has seen it's most experienced officers leave as soon as they can or resign and take positions elsewhere, morale is at rock bottom, and he is being sued by the very officers he "supports." With regards to lawsuits, again, $55 Million dollars and growing....

CLAIM: Mayor Berry will not enforce the minimum wage.
BERRY'S "FACT": KOB, the station that hosted today's debate, found the claim to be so outrageous that it called the attack "a pretty far stretch from reality."

THE TRUTH: Berry continues to evade answering hard questions. As a city ordinance, Berry has a duty and obligation to enforce it when a citizen is harmed by it.

OMG, did you see today's Albuquerque Journal!?!?!?! I bet Lange/Walz are wondering why the fuck did they endorse a guy who has as much depth as a dried out pop-tart.

$650,000 to the Journal may have bought the endorsement, but what did they endorse?!?! A buffoon who grunts and clicks with cottonmouth (talk about shrill, his campaign is shrill) who can't answer simple questions.

I watched the tremendous mudhole stomping that Heh and Dinelli conducted in that smug, candy ass, elitist lying bitch ass of a fraud whitebread mayor's balloon knot. Heh stomped the mudhole and Dinelli stomped it dry. Mayor woodhead smallfruit Richard J. Berry looks to have been coached to not look as if he was shitting his pants like the last debate. They also powdered his lying face and bulbous dome so as to cut down on that sweaty sheen. Nice makeup DICK! Is that max factor or are you the next cover girl since you are a cheerleader. Someone must have told him about that excessive water drinking too... Hahaha!! Too fucking funny! We know berry and his merry band of assholes read this blog. The fear is in your face boy. It will be nice to see you jobless come 8/9.

Berry: "Once again I invite the candidates to look at the facts. I support my police officers."

Heh: "Support your officers? They're suing you!"

Fucking classic.

You Perry and Schultz conspire to lie against employees to hide what you all do from the DOJ. You also buy off, influence, and intimidate hearing officers to back your play and attempt to stack the deck against those who fight for their rights. Then you fire honest hearing officers who don't play along and side with your illegal actions. This is evident by the outcomes and blatant retaliation against those who go against you and the favorable treatment, cherry assignments and promotions giving to those cowards who do your dirty work. We will see just how much you support your employees real soon when all the dirt comes out. Standby buddy. This shit is about to get ugly. Keep sticking your head in the sand thinking that you have insulated yourself through multiple levels of minions because it is going to be hilarious when the DOJ shoves it up your lying ass. The police and Fire hate your lying guts. Library workers know that you couldn't give a shit that they are being walked all over. The rest of the city employees know that you treat them as peasants. So mister high school athlete and business major pretty boy, you can stick your bullshit spin and lies up your ass.
Even if you were to win, it would be monumental to see the Department of Justice rip you down mid term and embarrass the shit out of you. Karma is a bitch and it always comes.

XWL here. When people work in a department where the director decides you should not have chairs, where you are instructed to obscure facts and outright lie to taxpayers when they ask you questions about what caused a library to burn, where you get written up for what someone overheard you say, then it's time for a housecleaning..extermmination...OR how about an election? That'll get rid of the vermin. I'm tired of this and I'm too young to have varicose veins from standing up all day!--XENA.
