Thanks to one of our legal-EYEs it seems, Mr. Perry has some more explaining to do. You see as a licensed attorney he is bound to certain rules of professional conduct. Two of those rules involve avoiding any appearance of impropriety. Another is operating when there is a conflict of interest. As we all know, an officer involved shooting scene is an ACTIVE investigation, and as an attorney, Mr. Perry has no business being at such an active scene no matter how "fantastical" he things he is. And for Mr. Perry, who also sits on the city's lawsuit claims review board, as a participant and witness to the shooting scene, he now has conflicted himself out from weighing in on the matter.
Is there really any difference between Perry showing up at shooting scenes and White showing up at an accident scene? In fact, we think there's probably more of a reason for White to be present than for Perry under any circumstances!
In short, Mr. Perry's actions have create MORE liability for the city not less. Now we know, Mr. Perry has little interest in following rules, nevermind any ethics, but perhaps it's time he be called before the state bar's disciplinary board for review of his, rather "fantastical" conduct. Here's a link to the Bar's complaint page:
"Dissemination of information" is what the city of Albuquerque's highest paid employee stated recently when asked why he was showing up at APD officer involved shooting scenes.
CAO Rob Perry has established quite a pattern of being in places he shouldn't be and knowing he shouldn't be. In November 2010, he walked through the unprocessed death scene of prominent civil rights attorney Mary Y.C. Han.
Then the following summer, he aided then chief's chief, Darren White in his handling of the media circus following White's actions at his wife's car crash.
Then reports started flowing in about Perry showing up at officer involved shootings and interfering with the investigation as he ordered people around and yelled at them.
Then our Eyes tell us he showed up at the recent shooting at 2nd NW/Arvada, after being brought there by a driver (our Eyes say it was his son) and was clearly intoxicated. Mr. Perry, we are told, screamed at Eden, yelled at officers across the street, and was guarded by perpetual shield of deputy chiefs.
Then while citizens went to meet with Mayor Berry in mass, Perry taunted and provoked them. Officers tell us he belittled people by calling them "son" and "chief."
We're curious as to why these antics have been allowed to continue. Had any of these incidents involved a P 1/C they'd have already been reassigned to the Prisoner Transport Unit or fired. Yet with Perry, it's pass after pass. We at the Eye are calling for an immediate mental health evaluation before Perry does something to truly harm himself or god forbid others. You see, this type of behavior only grows and becomes more aggressive when unchecked. Which as can be seen in the image below, Mr. Perry has found time to go to a local gym on the westside to workout during the day AND sign up for Zumba classes. Geez Rob, really?
On second thought, forget about the transport to 2600 Marble NE, let's see what else this summer brings, it should be interesting....
Thanks to one of our Eyes, here's a video of Mr. Perry's testimony before city council last week:
