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

We must always fight for what is right

The image of firefighter Chris Fields removing Baylee Almon from the rubble of the once standing Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building won the Pulitzer Prize in 1996. The 1-year old girl died later in a nearby hospital.
At 9:02 on the morning of April 19, 1995, Timothy McVeigh blew up a rented truck filled with 4,800 lbs of fertilizer and other explosive material to cause the worst case of domestic terrorism prior to the events of 9/11. The explosion killed 168 people and injured hundreds

This Pulitzer Winning Photo was taken by Charles Porter who was a 25 year old amateur photographer. He developed the picture at a local Wal Mart and his friends encouraged him to take the photo to the media. He then found Wendel Hudson at the Associated Press and the rest is history. 

When we saw this at the Eye it reminded us of the sacrifices that our public safety (first responders) folks do on a daily basis.  The same public safety folks that Berry and Breen think is "okay" for those officers to be inhaling toxic carcinogens due to malfunctioning extractors.

As the seriousness of what has occurred in Syria; we all can see that evil terrorists are still alive and continue to go after the innocent. It is our prayer that President Obama makes the right choice in rectifying these grievous acts against the people of Syria. We here at the Eye On Albuquerque stand behind the President in his endeavors of taking corrective action against Syria.

Terrorism is just that, rather it be foreign or domestic or the acts of a dictatorship government.

Thanks to the men and women who protected us on 911 and continue to do so.  To those firemen, police officers, medical personnel and military personnel;  We appreciate you and are forever indebted to your good deeds!

Each and every one of you are a HERO and don't even know it!  If you see a copper, a fire guy or gal, a medical person, etc...TELL THEM THANK YOU FOR THIER COMMITMENT TO US CITIZENS!

As Mayor Berry sits at the 9/11 Memorial Service, I can’t help but wonder what’s going on behind his eyes? Is it reflection on the tremendous amount of victims who lost their lives that day? Or is it reflection on what “buck” he missed out on during the clearing of the debris process? Does he reflect on the many of our troops, and public safety workers, who has lost their lives, and limbs, during this conflict? Or does he look in the mirror and wonder “what can I have possibly done to generate revenue from their losses?”

Under Mayor Berry’s administration, the public safety element of our city government has experienced a loss of morale that is unprecedented in this city’s history; and contrary to what some people’s beliefs are, it has nothing to do with pay cuts. If that were true, our police officers would be welcoming the pay raise Mayor Berry is offering with open arms…they’re not. The way I’ve come to understand it, the problem centers on his lack of leadership and failure to respond to the concerns of his rank and file regarding public safety and the competence of those appointed to advocate for them (superiors). Public safety can be equated to a para military organization very similar to our military; they’re not there to generate a profit, they’re there to protect. I believe our public safety servants are more concerned with the leadership chosen to represent them (they REALLY do want to go home at the end of a shift and to be rightfully taken care of if the unthinkable does happen…remember 9/11?) and definitely do want their “Commander in Chief”, Mayor Berry, to hear their concerns; Mayor Barry showed lack of concern, and leadership, by not showing up to a forum specifically designed to address those concerns.

Why is the morale of public safety of any value to you? It’s a valid question that must be explored and I hope to offer one explanation:

Remembering that public safety is similar to a military organization, military chains of command at all levels within their respective branch, and echelon, understand the importance of morale regarding those placed in their charge. They understand that taking care of the War Fighter, and they’re families, WILL produce positive results on the missions they engage in (i.e.; achieve objectives, gain tactical advantages and with minimal losses). Furthermore, a commander, or any subordinate designee, CAN be relieved of their position if it’s determined they’re failing to maintain the morale of their assigned unit members.

What I would like to know? If re-elected, what WILL Mayor Berry do to ensure MY safety? He says in his ad “there’s much more to do!” Mayor Berry, what is your plan to restore the confidence, and morale, of our city’s public safety workers in your leadership?

Berry, Perry, Breen, Schultz, and every DC Fire and DCOP have failed to act and do what is right as leaders and human beings.
The public knows this. The cops and firefighters know this. The unions know this.
When the fuck will COA, AFD admin, and APD admin realize this? Most leaders improve their skills as time goes on, but not in Albuquerque. The so-called leaders get worse and destroy everything. It's not even a party affiliation thing. It's piss-poor, lame excuses for individuals, that gagged on cock to get where they are. We are better off with no mayor, COP, or fire chief.
Berry, Perry, Tourek, Breen, Schultz, Banks, Downey, Green, Santistevan, and White, go the fuck away and let the real police and fire officers lead the way.

To 2:29, when you say, "The cops and firefighters know this. The unions know this." you are insinuating that these groups are two different things. Unions and rank and file are one and the same! You ARE the union and you should understand that completely. Mayor Berry in response to why he didn't show up to the public safety debate also used the same phrasing, separating the unions and rank and file, which is totally incorrect. Wake up people, get involved in your union and not just on pivotal issues.

Former Chief of Police Raymond D. Schultz, Sgt. Jason Peck, Former Deputy Chief Paul Feist, Former Deputy Chief Beth Paiz, Former Commander (if that's what you want to call it)Ray Mason, City attorney Kathryn Levy and Former Sgt. Ryan Buckner lied their asses off on two officers who arrested a violent homicide suspect,armed fleeing felon and member of a known hate group who threatened to kill a police officer inside of a packed hotel, almost three years ago to save their coward asses from a DOJ investigation. Way to go Berry and Perry. You scum bags really support your emergency personnel.
Just wait till more of the truth gets out. It's coming. Jason Peck should have never advised an officer to lie in an official police investigation. That's probably why he was rewarded with Buckner's old job of sabotaging cops targeted by Ray Schultz.
Is it a coincidence that all but two are still employed, and one has had all of her assignments taken from her? What isn't a coincidence is how people in the city attorney's office are still talking about how dirty of an investigation that was. Yea, on 9/11 Mayor Berry and his buddy Perry couldn't give a shit about anything but their own hides. The same goes for every dishonorable puke who had a hand in that lie and travesty.

If we don't stand with our unions against this corrupt will really work against us in Berry's 2nd term..that's when the shit will really hit the fan for all of us city workers! We've got to support the candidate that can win and it seems to be Dinelli. Heh is awesome but he doesn't have the numbers that Dinelli does. Paul will have a high ranking position in Dinelli' s administration. But we can't afford votes being taken away from the possible replacement for Berry!

You want to talk about kickbacks and shit?

Why does a Mister Joseph Larocca state "Ray, You have made a tremendous impact in ABQ and around our nation. Best of luck in your future ventures." on Ray's Twitter page?

See it here:

Mister Larocca describes himself as a Senior Advisor - Retail Loss Prevention Expert and founder / president of Retail Partners. On the web you can find his business here:

Here is another one of Mister Larocca's web sites:

It seems that Mister Larocca is heavily involved in consulting and speaking in regards to loss prevention and security in the retail industry.

Things that make you go Hmmmmmmmmm!

Could Joseph have any connections with ARAPA (Albuquerque Retail Assets Protection Association) and Ray Schultz's friend Miss Karen Fischer who is also heavily involved with Retail Loss Prevention? Hmmmmmmmmm Again!?!?!

Why yes I do think so!

So it seems that Ray's little friend Miss Fischer and this guy have a little you scratch my back, I'll scratch yours and we'll all make a little money. Maybe they are all sitting in a circle scratching each other's backs, saying how great Ray is because of all the money he has made them by abusing his position and influence. No wonder ARAPA is now a business. Public funds for a private business. Just how many people made money from this and will continue to make money from it? How much city funding was spent on this blurred line of city work versus personal gain?

So now we all know that all it takes to get people to say great things about someone that everyone else thinks shit of is to line them up financially. It's funny how the only people who like Ray are those who have benefitted from his slimy bullshit.

Here is a little nugget for the DOJ:

Search all of APAPA's email files for the one sent out to all retailers advising them of a federal investigation by the DOJ into APD and read it. Read how it tells them how to act in reference to this investigation.

"Leadership begins at the beginning." author unknown. When, APD does not provide training for a patrolman who want to go on to be a supervisor, then the result is what is now apparent. Twenty or twenty-five years ago, selfish people came onto the dept. Thank you all for not listening to the real professionals at that time. All of you are now reaping what you have sow back then.

Any employee in that fire station can call OSHA anonymously and have it investigated. We had no hot water in the bathroom at the library to wash our hands properly after handling filthy books and money all day.Someone at the union at my request had an inspection dones,the maintenance manager took the fall for not having the water heater turned on. The same day it was on and we were able to have clean hands during the winter flu season. This is the same maintenance manager that got away with stealing city property to fix his home up and the homes of the directors who knew he had been doing it for over 10 years...paid administrative leave still after 3 months of ongoing investigation! Shit most of us peons would be fired on the spot!

Hopefully they are just following the bread trail with this moron, connecting the dots to everyone involved in this mess. It would be nice to see a ton of "former" city administrators go to prison for their dirty deeds.
