KRQE shows a gilded turd.
Abq Free Press: MONITOR RIPS APD
Where have all those sleeve hashes gone Gorden? Why have you removed them?
Is it because you are a fraud? A while back, the poser police chief of the Albuquerque Police department was called out about his years of service sleeve hashes; 16 gold bars running down his weak left arm. Each one of those bars represents 2 years of service. Last year KRQE's reporter at the time Tina Jensen did a story on it where former APD Commander David Gilmore split his ass in half over the issue, and likened Eden's fraud to "STOLEN VALOR."
Suddenly, after that story aired Gordon Eden, or his seamstress removed not one, or a few, but all of his little gold bars off of all of his medium uniform blouses. Folks, the upper command structure of APD is staffed with fakes, liars, cowards, creeps, perverts, and has absolutely no command presence. They have proven this time and time again, and we are hearing another bit of proof is in the pipeline. But until then, lets dissect this police chief, shall we.
Mr. Eden claims to have been a police officer for about 27 years. A police officer?!
Hmmmmmm... Some real police officers may take offense to this because Mr. Eden has not fit that definition much, if at all.
Def. as taken from Wiki
A police officer, also known as a policeman, police agent, or by slang terms, is a warranted law employee of a police force. In the United States, "officer" usually is the formal name of the lowest police rank. In many other countries, "officer" is a generic term not specifying a particular rank, and the lowest rank is often "constable". In some nations the use of the rank "officer" is legally reserved for military personnel. Police officers are generally charged with the apprehension of criminals and the prevention and detection of crime, protection and assistance of the general public, and the maintenance of public order. Police officers may be sworn to an oath, and have the power to arrest people and detain them for a limited time, along with other duties and powers. Some police officers may also be trained in special duties, such as counter-terrorism, surveillance, child protection, VIP protection, civil law enforcement, and investigation techniques into major crime including fraud, rape, murder, and drug trafficking. Although many police officers wear a corresponding uniform, some police officers are plain-clothed in order to dissimulate as ordinary citizens.
We here at the Eye would like to add to this, Sir Robert Peel's nine principles.
The nine principles were as follows:
1.To prevent crime and disorder, as an alternative to their repression by military force and severity of legal punishment.
2.To recognize always that the power of the police to fulfill their functions and duties is dependent on public approval of their existence, actions and behavior, and on their ability to secure and maintain public respect.
3.To recognize always that to secure and maintain the respect and approval of the public means also the securing of the willing co-operation of the public in the task of securing observance of laws.
4.To recognize always that the extent to which the co-operation of the public can be secured diminishes proportionately the necessity of the use of physical force and compulsion for achieving police objectives.
5.To seek and preserve public favor, not by pandering to public opinion, but by constantly demonstrating absolutely impartial service to law, in complete independence of policy, and without regard to the justice or injustice of the substance of individual laws, by ready offering of individual service and friendship to all members of the public without regard to their wealth or social standing, by ready exercise of courtesy and friendly good humor, and by ready offering of individual sacrifice in protecting and preserving life.
6.To use physical force only when the exercise of persuasion, advice and warning is found to be insufficient to obtain public co-operation to an extent necessary to secure observance of law or to restore order, and to use only the minimum degree of physical force which is necessary on any particular occasion for achieving a police objective.
7. To maintain at all times a relationship with the public that gives reality to the historic tradition that the police are the public and that the public are the police, the police being only members of the public who are paid to give full-time attention to duties which are incumbent on every citizen in the interests of community welfare and existence.
8.To recognize always the need for strict adherence to police-executive functions, and to refrain from even seeming to usurp the powers of the judiciary of avenging individuals or the State, and of authoritatively judging guilt and punishing the guilty.
9.To recognize always that the test of police efficiency is the absence of crime and disorder, and not the visible evidence of police action in dealing with them.
Many have seen these principles, and we all know that the APD command staff did not uphold these as officers and do not today as they continue to ruin the city with Berry at the helm as Mayor. FMB!
Mr. Eden worked at the New Mexico State Police, the New Mexico Department of Public Safety, the New Mexico Attorney Generals' Office, as the Director of the NM Motor Vehicles division, NM Department of Public Safety Cabinet Secretary, and APD police Chief. For ten years he wore a uniform in the NMSP, as a police officer does, then from there it was appointment after appointment. Laughably, shortly after becoming a state police office, he went inside to work as at the state police academy. Any old salt street cop who cut their teeth out there getting to know their beat, protecting their citizens, and getting scuffed up fighting crime knows what this guy is all about... Himself. We told you a while back we were going to do this, and here it is.
As Mr. Eden Gypsied himself around, getting appointed politically by cronies as he did here, he tried a stint in the private sector for a year and a half (it didn't last long did it?) in Illinois, at Northwestern Universitie's Center for Public Safety, as a teacher. Not too stable of a work history, as would be considered by an employer. Ten years was the longest stint. A whole lot of moving around. Oh, and Mr. Eden got his bachelors degree from a University of Phoenix in Business Administration. Do cops run businesses? Sometimes, but Mr. Eden was not, and is not in police work for the right reasons, or because he wanted to be a cop. He is in it for the profit, and all the wrong reasons that ruin a police department, because personal agenda has no place in law enforcement, neither does the illegal agendas of your bosses. You see, a fraud can only get what he is given, and he can only hide his incompetence with the help of others who are frauds for a short time, until they are outted, and have to seek another hiding spot.
As the officer's career develops, and if he or she chooses to promote, they become an investment to the department, and community, and they buy in to committing to improve their community, and give back, just as they benefit from what their community, and department give them. If you take the job of a police officer, it is an investment and buy in. You love your calling. Not these guys. It is all about political connections, personal enrichment, power, greed, perversion, perks, networking. When things stop working for them, they take their ball and go home. They are gypsies and they care nothing about fixing what is broken. They will say anything you want to hear, they will cry crocodile tears at in line of duty officer funerals, they will hold your hand at vigils for murder victims, while they look down, and fake sadness, meanwhile, they will torch the cop who upholds the above principles and loses sleep, and sometimes their job over the way a once great profession has been torn apart by these self serving malfeasant cowards.
Being a compassionate, competent, vigilant, good cop is not about photo ops, and doing things for publicity. It is about doing things for the right reasons.
There is a saying that you can gild a turd, but under that gold it's still just a turd. These frauds lead by Mayor Berry, and his punk CAO Robert Perry ARE turds that have fleeced this city. Gorden Eden is a turd. The department is full of self serving turds. The Mayor's office is loaded with turds, and the City Attorney's office IS a turd. The turds need to be flushed.
Please take time out to read our friends, the Albuquerque Free Press today to see today's release of federal monitor James Ginger's special report ripping APD over non leadership.
All the gold in the world can't make a turd something it is not, but a real good enema can.
