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.

911 AND 911 AND MORE 911....

As reported on KOAT CH7, the national standard for answering 911 calls is ten seconds or less.

Well three years ago A.P.D. answered those 911 calls 97% of the time within ten seconds or less.  The number then dropped to 91% and now to 86%  to answer 911 calls in ten seconds or less.  When seconds count the most serious calls are not being answered within the ten second window. 

Think ten seconds is not long? Think how it would be for you Mr. Nobody if you were in a life or death situation to be on the phone just listening to it ring.  After that 911 call is finally answered a Police Officer has to be found to respond to that call. With about six hundred Officers, good luck with that.

But now for the big story.  When a talking head for the administration was questioned about this horrible situation by KOAT, he responded by saying that 911 calls have increased to six thousand more a month. WHAT?  This is an increase of seventy two thousand  911 calls a year more.  The talking head said A.P.D. will hire two additional 911 operators. 

Here is an idea for APD's about getting crime under control!  This is all the proof you need for us "nobodies" that crime in Albuquerque is out of control and that The Police can not protect you.  All of us nobodies have to find a way to protect ourselves and our loved ones.  Trying to get the TRUTH from the City is next to impossible.  Sometimes, just sometimes, when the City is caught in a cover up a talking head will try to defend the City and the TRUTH will accidentally spill out....

How many Officers does The Albuquerque Police Department really have ? Ask the administration and the talking heads will tell you around eight hundred to nine hundred on a department that needs eleven hundred . The numbers change like the weather in Alaska and you will never get the truth , because the administration don't want you to know the truth.

Our EYES inside A.P.D. tell us the real number is just over six hundred and falling fast with Officers leaving anyway they can.  The last firearms qualification for A.P.D. had just over six hundred qualify.  This means that everyone that carries a gun, you know a Police Officer had to qualify  and that total number is just over six hundred. Now subtract supervisors that don't work the streets or take calls that and that drops the number to about five hundred. Subject detectives that don't take calls and that drops the number again in the neighborhood to about four hundred. Local Media are you interested ? Here is clue for you media, demand the A.P.D. Range records for the last qualification. We all know you will never be allowed to review the records.  A.P.D. and The Berry Administration keep everything secret from us nobody' s.

You may remember Renaldo Chavez who was fired by Mayor Berry for not releasing information requested by media.  Mr. Chavez contends he was ordered not to release information. Well we at The EYE believe Mr. Chavez.  Seems that just after Mr. Chavez was fired a memo was issued to all employees that no one was to release any Police Reports. All reports have to be cleared by a commander and picked up at the Main Police Department downtown.

So nobody you can drive downtown find and pay for a place to park and if the commander wants you to have the report you can pay for that too.  Employees can not even look a reports on their computers, because if they do the computer logs their identification number and the administration will go after them.

Keep everything a secret is how the administration operates so us nobody's will never know what they are up to. We at The EYE want questions answered, Did Officer Dan Webster have back up ?!!!!! Release the call log for that call, you know the cad report. When There are no Cops bad things happen, to Cops and us Nobody's

Run Dianna Run!!!
As all of us nobodies know by now, former Secretary Of State Dianna Duran under a plea deal was allowed to run and plead guilty to six of sixty five criminal charges. 

Duran resigned, has to pay back $14,000 to political donors, and spend five years on supervised probation. Duran will escape a fine against her and will keep her State Retirement as part of the plea deal. 

What if you were accused of 65 criminal counts? Do you really think all but six be tossed out? Do you think you would get probation? Does anyone believe that Duran will sit in a waiting room for hours waiting her turn to meet with her probation officer. Does anyone believe that Duran will really pay back $14,000 donors?  

Have any of your family or friends been convicted of a crime? What happened to them?  Do you really think that if you had a State Retirement it would be protected? Ask any Police Officer that has been terminated on trumped up charges just to make the administration and lets not forget Schultz look good. Their lives have been turned upside down. They have lost everything including their retirement. Police Officers are just like the rest of us nobody's, no one to protect them or you. We at the EYE are sure Duran will receive a huge retirement, at least six figures.  

If anyone knows that number please let us know.  What about Ray Schultz?  We at the EYE know that a complaint was filed by a former Sergeant on A.P.D. regarding Taser well over a year ago with State Attorney General Office. Then another sergeant filed a LEA-90 against Schultz we are told. But nothing is coming from that we hear.

Bottom line, if your somebody, you will skate on anything. If you’re a nobody, you will get book thrown at you. Even Duran said she did a great job as Secretary Of State. What does this tell our children that when you are an office holder of one of the most important positions in the state's government and you use your office to violate the law, you get your hand slapped? Mayor Berry and his deputy Mayor Kent Walz want to blame Santa Fe for the turnstile justice of repeat offenders. Well this begins with law breakers like DuRAN, not the bottom feeders our officers deal with every day.

P.S. The Eye congratulates APD Officer Jeremy Dear for winning his appeal against the City and the Berry/Perry administration.

So why is New Mexico and Albuquerque in the mess it and first on every bad list and last on every good list? 

If you read The Santa Fe New Mexican you can see for yourself.  Two stories on November 7 and 8 reported in the paper are well worth reading.  Of course our local media either didn't report the stories or lightly skipped over them. It seems The F.B.I. is investigating Jay McClesky and his fund raising activities for Governor Martinez back to her run for her first term.

Part of the investigation is money going to McClesky from the 2011 inauguration committee going to political consultant Jay McClesky. McClesky  also raised money for our loved Mayor Richard Berry. McClesky is very well paid. Martinez paid McClesky $21,418.00 a month from April to October or $128,512.00.  Martinez also paid McClesky wife Nicole, owner of Public Opinion Strategies , $20.000.00 for the same time period. Former Secretary Of State paid McClesky $365,530.00 from 2010 TO 2014. McClesky was paid tens of thousands of dollars by the Republican Governors Association in 2014 and Public Opinion Strategies $ 63,000.00.  F.B.I. are questioning the lease agreement issued by Martinez Administration  to The Downs Racetrack And Casino since early 2013. 

Wait a minute wasn't Darren White in charge of the casino?  Federal Grand Jury indicted James Estrada, Martinez former Campaign Manager for illegally intercepting Martinez emails. Estrada said that the emails contained McClesky involvement in State Business and possible corruption.  A March 2012 text message sent by McClesky to Andrea Goff, a fundraiser for Martinez , requesting they run donations to Martinez by William Windham, through another political committee because the competing bidder for the Down Lease complained about Windham winning the lease. Think that is enough ?

Oh no there is more. Federal Investigators have subpoenaed records from New Mexico Taxation And Revenue to see if retaliatory audits were conducted on former members of  Martinez political team when they ran afoul of Martinez.  Brent Eastwood was audited for his gross receipts taxes, after he filed a whistleblower lawsuit that named top officials of wrongdoing and was fired.  Nathanial Thompkins , attorney for Eastwood  also received an audit.  Tom Tinnin received an audit after he resigned after a dispute with Martinez over The Downs Racetrack And Casino Lease.  Andrea Goff former fundraiser for Martinez has had several audits by the State. Of course no one will answer questions to state officials and McClesky saying it's under investigation. Where have we heard that before?  A.P.D. of course! Does this tax thing sound anything like how Schultz used Internal Affairs?

This shows why we are in the state of affairs we are in. Keep your mouth shut on corruption and you're ok. Open your mouth and you become a target for political revenge. We at the EYE ask one simple question. Is there an honest politician in New Mexico ?

Robert "THUG LIFE" Perry Gets ANOTHER RAISE: It Pays to Be a Thug!

We all have heard about the great deal former Secretary Of State Duran got on her criminal charges, after all she is a somebody. 

Enter Rob Perry the City C.A.O. You nobody's may remember in 2013 Mayor Berry gave Perry a $33,000.00 raise.  Here is some news for all of you nobody's struggling to make ends meet. Our EYES  tell us that Perry just got another $ 8000.00 DOLLAR raise bringing his yearly salary to $188,198.4 dollars a year or $90.48 dollars an hour. 

We at THE EYE are disgusted by this.  Police, who the Mayor cries how much he cares about are still working without contract and have been for years.  Police bonuses have been stolen by their administration.  City employees are making around ten to fifteen dollars an hour!  

We don't have the stats for Fire or the private sector but we would love to hear from you. Have you had almost a 25% raise over the last five years?  Don't forget  Perry's huge salary is in addition to all the perks that go with the job. Does Perry have a take home car? Does Perry have a City Credit Card?  This is the proof that Berry and his team could care less about the employees that make the city run or the economy of the city and its people that struggle to make ends meet.   

Now let’s turn our attention to Councilwoman  Diane Gibson. As reported by KRQE ch13 Gibson wants The State Legislature  to pass legislation to allow local communities to make their own gun laws.  Gibson wants a ban on certain guns that she feels we nobody's should not have.  As we have reported on THE EYE the Police cannot protect us nobody's, all  they can do is pick up the pieces. The Police want to protect you but the sad fact of living in Albuquerque, is they cannot. So Diane after you take our guns, our means of protection for our family, what  are you going to do after the next tragedy ?  

Diane are you going to stand in front of the media and use that age old line, my thoughts and prays go to the family of nobody.  We at THE EYE are sick and tired of this political line. Diane why don't stand up and say this should of never happened in  the first place, and we politicians are at fault!

Backs to Berry

One of our regular Eyes, told us of the following Facebook post by retired APD sergeant Dan Klein. As you know, Sgt. Klein is one of the few cop's cops out there and calls it exactly as he sees it. And we couldn't agree more. Thank you Sgt. Klein!

"For six years Richard Berry has turned his backs on APD officers. He refused to honor the agreed upon APOA contract, he left chiefs in place who were ethically challenged, he hired a chief who has no experience, he allowed APD command staff to take money that was clearly meant for the beat cops, he created hiring requirements that have failed in the past, he removed the senior officer retention bonus plan and he refuses to settle the 6 year contract dispute. 432 officers have fled APD since this guy became mayor. Crime is way up. Yet the only excuses Berry comes up with are "it's the legislature's fault" or "it's PERA's fault". Never holding himself accountable for his destructive mismanagement of APD. 

The police department probably has less than 800 sworn officers and beat cops will tell you, the streets are dangerous because there is no back up. 

Berry turned his back on APD six years ago, it's time to return the message."
