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.

They can’t always get what they want.


This is an excellent and genuine comment, and we appreciate that. It is free of agenda, and lays it out pretty well. It brings up points that people want to discuss, considering the history of malfeasant politics in our city, and it shows the frustration at hand. This is what we like here. We appreciate the bluntness. It is way better than the slimy, agenda driven, passive aggressive shit attacks we get here, from those that disagree because their ego, political plans, or cushy assignment prospects were dashed to pieces on the shores of life’s many disappointments.

Nobody here is on anyone’s nuts. Rest assured of that. This was all about denial of access, and cover to those responsible for the state of affairs of our police department, and city. It was about taking away that access, and exposing corruption. As much as things may appear one way or another, considering the perception and vantage point. One thing is for sure... the dynamics will be changing, because promises were made to clean this up, and make things right. This is our objective too. The Eye is organic and operates as so. It is beholden to nobody.

The problem in our city is people who think they are more important and worth more than you, us, and everyone else around them. These absolute vermin have destroyed the city with this mentality and their criminal actions. Those who stood by, and watched are guilty, and those who “got theirs, and took off to avoid the heat, and accountability when the DOJ arrived are just as guilty too.


The secondary problem, are the pests who want to hear themselves talk with their bloviated calling of the shots, and predictions as they say. They have predicted nothing, and they too are cowards, as they run their mouths from well insulated positions, or already have locked down high dollar pensions. You are also going to see the false cheerleaders, and blow jobs coming out of the woodwork too. We will be doing our best to preempt all of this or call it out for what it is, and outline the motive.

Going back to Berry’s election, we know for a fact that during his campaign he told many that if elected, he would toss Ray Schultz in the shitter. That is a fact, but something happened. That “something” is always the gutless, parasitic cretins who think they are power brokers, sitting behind the scenes cutting deals, or calling in favors for political support, or other issues that may be needed down the line to get what they want, or support their agenda. These are the people we are observing now. In New Mexico, this picture is large, but when it involves criminal activity it is racketeering. It is the reason why Brachle was not indicted for shooting a fellow officer. It is the reason why the Albuquerque Journal supported Dan Lewis and Brian Colon at the same time. It is the reason why they then changed their tune, and supported Tim Keller, when the other two were called out on certain issues, and it was evident Keller was going to take it. It is the reason why Ray Schultz has not been indicted. It is the reason why Nate Korn of Kaufman’s West Army Navy gave campaign donations to a candidate Lewis, when his wife is a political appointee of Republican Governor Martinez, and he himself supported Martinez and Berry, while being Ray Schultz’s main cheerleader, and dirt doer at the New Mexico Law Enforcement Academy Board while he was there. It is the reason why Darren White, who is a shameless Susana Martinez water carrier gave a large sum of money to a Lewis in the mayoral election. It is the reason why there was a campaign of disparity in treatment of officers during the Scheme Schultz himself devised to keep the DOJ out of our city while painting people stains on the badge when these people are the biggest shit stains on humanity. It is the reason why criminal officers were covered for, and allowed to retire, while others had cases fabricated on them out of retaliation, animosity or to defraud the DOJ, for doing their jobs, or trying to raise a child. Albuquerque has been one big fucking racket for way too long, and sometimes fucking up co-conspirators best laid plans is the path to reconstruction. The police department suffered from all of it, and now you and your family are suffering from the fallout of officers who shut down, to avoid being victimized by a malfeasant, malevolent, self serving administration, out to cover up their corruption on the backs of any target of opportunity; hence our out of control crime rate, that correlated directly to illegal and unethical actions taken out on the police department out of desperation by former Police Employee Ray Schultz. (We will not call that bag of puss a Chief any longer.)

The people that you do not know about, who lurk about like cowards, torpedoing lives, and destroying the very thread of everyday life in our city, for their own advancement, do so out of greed, power, and sex. This is the problem. One of them knew all too well how serious this was when he got on an airplane, and left the city the day after his criminal administration was toppled, and he had no more cover. That fat red faced drunken bitch is now in Indiana. Indiana! How funny is that? How the fuck do you end up in Indiana from Albuquerque? You pack your bags and run like the bitch that you are in the middle of the night to follow your wife who is the only one left employable in the family. That is how.

You will hear the same people bring up the Eye and Berry from Berry’s first election win. They were the same people that contributed thousands to him, BUT they were the same hypocritical spineless cowards who remained silent for eight years as we tore this administration a new ass weekly, with every bit of intel we could muster, without giving up our sources. They were the same people who “got theirs” then got the fuck out, and left the mess for everyone beneath them. How many people would still be here if certain bits of information had not been released. Three evolutions of upper command staff turnover happened under Berry.

Everything is here in the archives. We were lied to, and we dealt with it with viciousness, and ferocity that you do not see in many other cities coming from a blog. This blog was started under the Marty regime. We all know what went down during those days. Berry knew it, and although you may think he got away with something, that pathetic clown will probably run away too. Just compare his photos from eight years ago to one taken today. He looks like a bag of ass, and all of his hair fell out. Bad things people do have a way of catching up with them. The stress, and lack of a reputation will take a toll on that boy forever. We do not envy him.

So, knowing that the stakes are very high here, there is not much room to be dishonorable, or revoke campaign promises. With that said, we do know how hard things are going to be, and it’s only been a week.

Things are going to be difficult, because one of the groups we discussed above will come into play. There is major assburn over Garcia being kept on as deputy chief, and the bringing back of retired APD commander Harold Medina. As a side note... Medina couldn’t even raised his right hand for his swearing in ceremony properly. What cop, let alone someone who was promoted to the level of commander does not know that you place your left hand on the Bible, while raising your right hand to be sworn in? Harold Medina does not... That’s who! How embarrassing is that?

The look on Keller’s face as Medina raises the wrong hand and ignores the Bible is priceless?

Things are also going to be hard, because there is not many. The pool of good leadership material is thin. You will see where the rubber meets the road, and who is in it to win it in time, because word is that a few are angry they weren’t promoted. We will see who sticks around to fix things, and who takes their ball and goes home. Honestly, we don’t want to see spoiled self centered brats kept on. A handful of dedicated loyal individuals can do the jobs of dozens if they know they are backed, and there is mutual trust between the officers, the citizens, and the command staff. As we see it, it is the command staff’s obligation and responsibility to regain the trust of both the officers and citizens. If you want to call yourself a police executive, you better understand what comes with that. Schultz, Eden, Huntsman, and the rest of the previous filth had no concept of that.
Although there are things we disagree with going on, we will deal with it, but we will not throw grenades at it, without a baseline to go on, because there are good officers depending on things to change drastically for them in a good way. If that does not happen... If officers get shit on we will address it. The same goes for all city employees and our citizens.

The fact of the matter is that Keller’s apologizing for complete assholes, who shot people with ashtrays, lotion bottles, cell phones, spoons, or who were just plain unarmed, for crimes ranging from nothing, to petty misdemeanors is called owning it. The fact that people were shot when they did not have to be, or as they were being talked down, and about to comply, like Boyd and Ellis and having to listen to jackasses on police audio recordings exclaim “ oh fuck fuck was that me?” when their gun goes off, then observe a whole entire city attorney’s office, and police department justify a negligent discharge of a firearm after a fathers kid is killed... THAT is the problem here. You can not deny that there were several unjustified shootings in our city that denies belief. How do you justify shooting someone standing on their own front porch from across the street, in the back, when they have a spoon in their hand, and the officer knows it is a spoon, then promoting them. How do you justify skipping over officers for promotion, just because you do not like them, when they have stellar records or better yet railroading them off the job to distract from upper command staff public corruption? How does a shoot get justified where an officer knows an object in the hand was a spoon, but the excuse was that the officer felt he may go inside, and get a gun? It does not work that way. That is not an imminent threat, but this was one of many unarmed shootings this officer had, and another one of the many ridiculous excuses that people are sick and tired of hearing. How does a mental patient get killed in his own back yard by the police when he is unarmed just because an officer bit off more that he could chew physically, and precipitated the situation? How does an officer shoot an unarmed suspect in the back, stand over him and shoot him again and lie about there being a gun in his hand and not get indicted for murder? There are use of force cases that need apologizing for, and actual prosecution of, and there are use of force cases that look like absolute shit, but are justified. People understand this, but the previous administration under Ray Schultz had blurred the line so badly that nobody, even the officers trust anyone, and that is no good. It is the reason why we are here. Some apologizing needs to be done on both sides, and the administration carries most of the weight on that. The competent officers know they didn’t fuck up. They know who the fuck ups are, and they don’t want to be around them either. If officers are cringing at some of these things, something is wrong.

You will never hear a good cop complain about the field, fighting criminals, dealing with drunks, ignorance, or anything related to police work out there in the trenches. The constant enemy of the good street cop is the self important, micro managing attention whore of a police executive who uses them for a stepping stool. That is going to stop. The failed leadership that betrays the rank and file out there every day, doing what they themselves can’t do, don’t want to do, or are too good to do will always be held accountable by us, because that is what destroyed our city.

The citizens have been duped by New Mexico politicians for decades. This has been done on the backs of employees, officers, other politicians, and the citizens themselves. As the song goes, you can’t always get what you want, and this is true here. Now THEY can’t always get what they want, because even though there are still unavoidable tentacles of influence throughout the place, there are also more Eyes. After all of this, and everything that happened, betraying the good for selfishness will never be lived down, if it is the result of intentional malfeasance. There will be stumbling and growing pains, but mark these words, there will be accountability. That is pretty much the climate we are in, and everyone knows this because of what happened, so mimicking a Berry regime is not likely.

Another reason we went this route was because the Mayor had a background in accountability based government. He conducted audits and knows what Berry and Schultz did and what they are. He was also none of the above when it came to the politically connected who are responsible for what happened here through their direct actions, or affiliations. We also decided this because he had a background in government an had the best plans for action.

You know what we do. We do not betray, nor do we stab backs. We react to deception. We only ask that the right thing is done. We ask that the wrongs be righted. Nobody is a peasant. Every wrong needs to be addressed. We ask that an honest attempt be made at all of this. This is all that can be expected. We are a week into this now. Let’s see what happens. All does not happen in a week. This will be a process. We will be watching, and so will our Eyes.

Feelings will get hurt. We can almost promise that, because we know who the posers are, plus you can’t appease everyone. We know who sat back, while the injustices were taking place. We know who reserved endorsement, until weeks before the runoff. We know those same frauds are standing in the crowd behind the Mayor, like they have been there all along, and we have their names, and facts to back it up. Those people are the ones who’s feet will be held to the fire when they decide to take the political, or low road approach to doing the right thing. We are also tired of union officials walking around like they are a boss, or bragging that they have the mayor’s ear. You know who you are. Get out your insulated booties mister “bro” because your shit is no longer going to be tolerated either. Joey boy learned it the hard way and you can too. If we smell any selfish agenda we will put it out there.

All in all, what we are saying is give it some time, but keep a close eye on everything. It is all we can do right now as things start to settle in, and get rolling. Taking care of Lou Golson, making the commanders give up the incentive pay, and filing an LEA90 against former Lt. Brachle’s certification were outstanding first moves. We will continue to keep eyes on the appointments, along with circumstances as they unfold. We want to see things made good, and safe for all of our citizens, officers and firemen.

We do not know how we will feel tomorrow, let alone 4 years but we will see, and so will those who choose the wrong choices.

No one person is Albuquerque’s savior. It is up to all of us.

Thank you for reading us, and we hope you and your families have a safe and happy holiday season!

Willoughby views Kelker’s apology as a missstep!?! Really? And on what grounds is that fat motherfucker qualified to analyze anything? This fat Dom Deluis motherfucker sits on his smelly ass all day running his mouth with the only constant being the word “bro” coming out of his stupid mouth every other word. He was never a field officer, and ran from the street to hide inside. The union position is his way of hiding from being a cop, while making more money from the union, and working his side catering business. The last I knew we all had to have approval for outside employment. The administration needs to open yet another investigation into the APOA books, and what is going on over there. Every president turns out to be a bag of self serving shit or a criminal. Let’s see the books man. What is that union hall being used for if nobody goes to the meetings? The feds should put a pole camera up outside that place. Fuck it. This shit and these big mouth parasites are getting old, and I am getting sick of it.

I’ve read this blog for the past 2 years or so and think the majority of the comments are well thought out and are from folks that really believe in holding City Hall and the senior command staff of APD accountable. But I’ve also read comments that are strictly from cyber-bullies who hide behind their keyboard to curse out folks they don’t like and do it without posting their names. So all in all the Eye serves a valuable service and I hope it, they, whomever, keeps the pressure on those that need to be held accountable,,,, accountable.

But’s here’s what has me taking the time to post a comment. Keller has been on the job one week, tomorrow starts #2. What has he done in one week?
1. Keller has taken away the retention pay from senior staff and is going to use it where it should be used, senior officers who aren’t part of the command staff.
2. Keller has done away with the rank of Asst. Chief
3. Keller has done away with the rank of Major
4. Keller is making all command staff officers reapply for the
positions they hold to determine who got those position based on
merit or based on cronyism.
5. Keller is creating a bureau to work with the DOJ to get them out of
6. Keller and Interim Chief Geier who are taking control of the APD,
and are going to work to get more officers on the streets and not
wait for the Legislature or anyone else to get the officers in Field
Services some help.

There is actually people in control as of December 1, nine days ago who care and are getting involved.

That’s week one.

Now some are really upset about “the apology.” (Including guys who were in my academy class when President Lincoln was in office and guys I worked with for 8 years on APD, they retired from APD, I went off in another direction.) Initially I wasn’t thrilled about it (the apology) still not thrilled, but at least now after thinking about it for a few days I understand.

Think about why the DOJ came in, investigated and the CASA was the result. The DOJ found a pattern of excessive use of force. You may not agree with the findings but that’s what they found. So why not apologize to someone who was the victim, yes I said victim of excessive use of force. There obviously were people who had been the victims (I said it again) of excessive use of force, because if excessive force would not have been used they wouldn’t be a victim. So what’s wrong with saying you were wrong when you were wrong? I think that’s where Keller was coming from and I think that’s a good thing.

Don’t we all agree that you shouldn’t use excessive force? Even in my day we wouldn’t condone the guys we worked using excessive force, and we didn’t have one tenth of the oversight APD officers have today. There has always been a line, and if you cross that line you lose the difference between us and them, and when you cross the line, yes you make “them” a victim.

I’ve read on this blog dozens of posts about people complaining that Berry was checked out, didn’t care about his police department and was AWOL. Keller is taking the bull by the horns, stepping up and atoning for the sins of others from the past. That’s something I don’t think I ever heard anyone in the past 8 years have the guts to do.

Keller is also doing exactly what so many of us said he should do the day he took office, look at 1 thru 6 above.

It’s only been a week, I voted for him and supported him and I think he had a good week and a good start and hopefully my PD buddies will still buy my coffee.

Rattled some cages with the demoting of Commanders. How many 34s knew they were getting those large bonuses??? The DA Officer or the AG needs to look into that. That would be the job of the Union to gather the correct documents and get them to the AG. I though the bonus was a one time thing then the language was fixed. Shows you what kind of people Schultz had in leadership positions and why.

Anonymous said...

Let me see if I got this right: Medina, the idiot that shot and killed a mentally ill child in a church is now the savior of APD. The husband of a woman who failed out of the APD academy, sued and failed out again. And really, Little Art Sanchez, if you followed Medina any closer your nose would go up Medina’s ass if Medina were to stop and catch a breath.

We. Are. Fucked.

His 10-40 buddy Lopez and the .338 Lapua, just to name a few. And how is it Garcia is still around, the guy could and should have been gone years ago, either by way of retirement or disciplinary action.

I am impressed with Keller's positive first steps re: APD's administrative bloat. The gravy train had go and Keller deserves props for opening that can of worms. I hope that these tics go quietly and with no drama, but somehow I think they won't go without a fight.

I am cautiously optimistic that there's a flicker of hope for my former hometown of Albuquerque.

Which commanders retired? Anyone heard. I don't know who are eligible JJ Griego, Mcdonald. I cant believe APD has babied psyzh or however you spell his name. He was a lateral who couldn't get off of OJT in the street so we promote him. He will be a DCOP in a year. Maybe Mcrae is the other?

Bet all the Commanders are doing their very best at kissing ass. It would be great if several of them lost their jobs and got demoted. There are so many with that rank that do not deserve it. They got there by going along with the former 5th floor and looking the other way. They never spoke up, now someone has stepped in and we hope will hold them accountable for their sins and those of the cowards that are no longer in power.

Anonymous said...

Just cuz they want their own people in the Commanders spot doesn't mean Keller has done more than Schultz. Mike and Medina will put their boys in those spots and I will happily remind you of this conversation.

Why are Lt who just got promoted put right back into the same position they came from. Schultzie way that's why. If you were a boy you got what you wanted so the Lt don't feel comfortable and want to go right back where they came from.

Why does Deyapp get to work from home or does she even do that? Time sheet fraud.

Lets not forget about Schultz and who was in charge of SID when Jacob was INTENTIONALLY shot????? GARCIA.

They do a bit more than that as they often get warrants and fail to enter them into NCIC, instead they give the warrants to SWAT, thus endangering every field cop on the street who might come in contact with the suspect. And as for "following up on leads" they use ROP for that, (SMH) like they'd have any success with a suspect other than in a sterile environment, and after being roughed up by SWAT/ROP... Does anyone really think that APD (homicide unit and criminalistics) didn't already have John Hyde's info from the MC shop investigation several hours before John and Rich took the "mental health pick-up order call", well they did...

This ->
apologizing for complete assholes, who shot people with ashtrays, lotion bottles, cell phones, spoons, or who were just plain unarmed, for crimes ranging from nothing, to petty misdemeanors is called owning it.
The fact that people were shot when they did not have to be, or as they were --- about to comply, --- listen to jackasses on police audio recordings exclaim “ oh fuck fuck was that me?” (this was sickening) when their gun goes off, [sic] justify negligent discharge of a firearm after a fathers kid is killed.."

It's insane that those people can look themselves in the mirror and be okay with themselves and expected to be treated as 34s and still proud to consider themselves a 34 when they know deep down in their heart of hearts that what they have done is fundamentally wrong and they are the ones that not only perpetuate but give substance to the feelings of contempt and distrust by the citizens of this city, but that they are guilty of much higher sins for abusing their authority and malevolently failing entirely the execution of their duties of office by committing homicide and other atrocities under the color of law.

Karma can be a much more cruel and much more creative than anyone else could ever hope to be, and if this life has any purpose beyond the obvious, karma will catch up with those responsible for causing so much trauma to the concept and principles of the peace keeping mission from which all 34s derive their authority as entrusted upon them by the people they swore to protect -- especially the weak, feeble minded, and mentally handicapped.
