YOUR PENSION IS BEING STOLEN TO FUND THE GREEDY AND POLITICALLY CONNECTED.

Hello,

Today we are reaching out to all of our readers to make you aware of the fact that those in charge of your pension fund are destroying it in order to pay themselves more and take it out of your pockets via the cost of living increase you get. You can read the below article to see what they plan to do.

Article about the suggested action on the PERA pension

Those responsible for this want to hit everyone on both ends. The retirees will lose their annual 2% cost of living raises and current employees will be paying more into their pensions. Why? Because of mismanagement and greedy administrators who have given themselves exorbitant raises on your backs with the only excuse being... well, we are allowed to. 

If you look at the pension recommendations, they have exempted a few groups in a slick way to shore up their side for approval. This is typical New Mexico shell game antics and political game playing. 


Below are some articles of interest you will want to check out. It outlines what has been going on.... They are from the ABQ Report.









We are being told that the task force put together for this is mainly constructed of emergency services personnel. All current and retired employees from all walks need to be represented. 

There are 90,000 people affected by this and everyone needs to get involved. 

REMEMBER... THE COLA USED TO BE 3%. EVERYONE WAS TALKED INTO TAKING A TEMPORARY 1% DECREASE, AND IT NEVER CAME BACK!

Please contact Frank Ortega at (505) 331-5117  Frank is a former city employee and former AFSCME. He is trying to get organized against this, and has been fighting it for a while. 


Do not let personal agendas, political favors, and back scratching destroy YOUR future. 

We wonder what the AG will do. We wonder what the Auditor will say. It seems that all these two do lately is go after low hanging fruit, and old ladies in outlying areas of the state, who pose no retaliatory threat to their political well being. They also stay far away from the root problems plaguing the place. After all, we have still heard nothing about the grand jury on Ray Schultz. NOTHING! These posers are also claiming that they will still be investigating the mansion sex trafficking allegations against deceased multi-millionaire Jeffrey Epstein. Yea, just like the Schultz investigation. 

It seems that Hector Balderas’s pet has his panties in a bunch over his home being burglarized. 
Well. From the top down huh? We’ve been saying that for how many years now. Maybe this social media darling can get his boss to do his job, and charge Schultz who started all of this by destroying the police department, causing attrition, and mass exodus stemming from mistrust of a corrupt administration that led to out of control crime. Enjoy it pal. You politicians are the problem. 



They have destroyed the state and they will continue to push people out and keep new ones away by gutting retirement. The state is being destroyed from all angles. 

The answer to why this place is a mess is right in the mirror for a few people.

Get involved. Call the above number!

Fuck Miche , Diego ,and all the rest . We were assured by Miche during her campaign that COLA’s were safe. Yea safe till she got her hand in the biggest money pool in the state. As for Diego he has always been on the tit. He knows about as much about investing money as captain kangaroo. If any body can make 3% rate of return on $100.00 what would PERA make on13 billion? Yes this simple but it’s better than the multi million dollars we are paying the out of control PERA mgrs. Nothing about that seems to affect Michies or Diego’s intention.
In any other place the AG would have put a stop to the pay increase PERA employees received ,except here in the land of MOVIDA!!
You know who will still get a raise ? ALL our Legislatures because they make under PERAs low income threshold

New Boss WORSE than the old boss

Hey mijo, your head is shaped like a stepped on eggplant and you just can’t get enough of the self marketing and advertising. Sorry, but Albuquerque isn’t in the market for more dog shit boy. It is funny how posers who can’t even put handcuffs on a person without killing them because they are suck a cunt, are always the ones professing themselves the best to ever put on a uniform that their daddy had to iron every day. You are a little piece of shit.

After reading the articles in the Urinal this morning I was still wondering why Simon Drobik isn't being investigated for fraud? It's right there is black and white. He was on Chiefs Overtime, would leave his post to handle a call for a PIO and then turn in the OT slips for both. He did that on several occasions but the 5th and 11th floor are looking the other way. Guess he must give one hell of a blow job.

Frank is not asking for any money , Frank is not running for any political office and will not make this effort a political agenda. What Frank needs is your support, your voice to those in political power that hold all P.E.R.A members future in their hands.

I urge everyone to call Frank and discuss the matter , then decide for yourself. learn the facts, the choice is yours.

Greetings,
First and foremost, I want to thank you for this blog. I recently visited Albuquerque to look into employment with the Albuquerque Police Department as an out of state lateral hire. I did a little reading and searching online, and was skeptical, but still took the trip this summer to check out your police department and city.

I will say the weather can not be beat, but that is about all I can say positively about your city. The vagrant issue that I have read about is out of control, and I drove around the majority of your city, and did not see one patrol car all day. On day two of my trip which was Saturday, I stopped for dinner down town, and it was an out of control madhouse. I observed three fights, and there was again, no police to be found.

I did see two officers on my third day who were eating lunch, and they looked like teenage girls. They were wearing ponytails earrings and had long nails. A couple hours later I ran into A sergeant in a circle k market near Eubank street, and after identifying myself and discussing your agency he warned me to look elsewhere. He was very strait forward, and said he did not feel comfortable recommending that I apply due to the situation of things for the last ten years. He said the place is a mess, and that most of the experienced officers and supervisors who were any good had retired or left, because of the corruption. He said any experienced officer going there would be disgusted at how the police academy is being run, and that it is an embarrassment. He actually told me to think about not applying to anywhere in the entire state of New Mexico because of how “f#$#& up” law enforcement was there. We discussed a few other issues. I thanked him and left.

That night I started doing research and found this blog. I searched some court cases and can truly say what I found is sickening, especially how you have treated your own officers. The railroading read like something out of a movie, I do not appreciate false representation or misleading behavior when it comes to making such a big decision as to relocate to another state. It seems your agency does not like or appreciate outsiders, and protects those who are related to, or connected to people who have political drag or are PD bosses. I have seen this, and it is no good when it comes to the law enforcement profession.

After reading this blog and looking into many of the cases and incidents discussed here I am amazed that there has not been one corruption indictment, rather the opposite. The DA and AG have allowed corrupt police chiefs to attack their own officers, and break corruption laws and nothing was done.

The Albuquerque police department is an absolute mess, and the only way I can describe how it was promoted to me by the ads I’ve seen and read is that it is like skipping a rock across the pond. After looking a little harder I was able to see the mess below the water.

I am thankful for my visit. I did meet some very nice people and was able to take a balloon ride. The place is pretty but it is dangerous and there is no backing from those running the city. Everything seems very fake. I wish I could say that I can’t believe what I’ve read here and elsewhere, but I do, and it is beyond unreasonable that the leadership of your police department has been allowed to do what they have done. This blog needs to be a 20/20 or Dateline NBC story.

Thank you for the information. I will not be applying to APD now or in the future. Good luck cleaning that mess up. One of your stories said it will take a decade, but I think it will take a couple.

Butthurt mijo thinks everyone is jealous of him. Hahaha. Jealous of a turd who latched onto something like a parasite. And mijo thinks people troll Facebook. Hahaha. You fucking punk. You’re a scum bag. Shut your weak ass mouth and go crawl back into the mud. You are lazy and a coward. You are a punk who murdered a person and you couldn’t even do it alone. It took two of you pussies. You got nothing by yourself or through hard work and nobody is jealous of a political ball washer and ass licker. You professional check collector. Shove your drone photos up your ass and take that punk ass grin of yours and look long and hard in the mirror you little cunt. You are nothing, and in a minute your house of fucking cards can be taken from you if someone decides to prosecute for murder. You are garbage and will never get anything based on merit because shitbags like you only know one thing... calling in favors to get what you want like you did when you had your boy Colon meet with Keller to promote you. Open your pretty little mouth again motherfucker. Shove that racist accusation up your powderpuff ass too. Calling you mijo has nothing to to with racism you crybaby little parasite. Suck on that. Oh yea, that’s right you don’t like sucking on something that can’t get you what you want. Try showing up to work, working a full week, or making a felony arrest. I thought so. Punk fuck. Does your daddy still iron your panties and shine your booties you prissy little fuck?

Praise the lord. I’m blessed. God is good... hahaha you fucking hypocrite.

That is ok though little guy, because the shit eventually comes out, and you can’t fool everyone. Try tasing me 10 times and see what happens punk.

If mijo ever shows up at your house you will know who he is by the dented eggplant shape of his head and the slimy shifty look on his face. He is no danger to you if he is alone because he won’t even get out of his car without backup. The only danger he poses is to mental patients riding bicycles. They have to worry about being kicked off of their bike and tased almost a dozen times until they have a heart attack. Don’t worry though. The city will settle with you, or um uh yea... your family to make it all go away because he and his posse politically wash balls and will have the brass protect him, while they put the screws to officers out there arresting real criminals, and making a real difference in the community. Here in Albuquerque we can have an officer push a belligerent drunk into a holding room wall where he suffers no injuries and that officer is fired and prosecuted, but another officer can kick someone from a bike and kill them with a taser and on top of it have the 10th circuit court rule it an unjustified use of force and a murder but it is whitewashed, made to disappear, settled and not even an action on his LEO cert was taken! How’s that for lacking standards? Look the case up. It was the shooting in the valley where Schultz said the suspect attacked officers with a cross which turned out to be untrue. It was all made to go away, because daddy in law was an aspiring politician, and ex APD, and this little coward was so far up Colon’s ass that you couldn’t discern where one ended and the other began.

Eye. What’s up with new NMSP academy Leader. I thought academy was supposed to teach recruits how to catch bad guys! Not be lead by a former chief accused of misconduct. Oh well more of “honey badgers “ influence on NMSP. Check press release 8//26 . Shea doesn’t even refer to her as former Alaska police chief just as veteran officer. Did Shea think this would hide who she Really is? And we thought “pizza and coke” was bad. This Gov. is far worse. Everyone from Shea to Chief to Deputy Chiefs are all “honey badgers” loyalist. Soon NMSP will be as bad as APD Leadership.

Fed up 34 said...

Here is some reading for the uninformed who seem to miss the political shell games going on....

https://www.ca10.uscourts.gov/opinions/14/14-2214.pdf

There! There we have a case where an APD officer was deemed to have murdered a mental patient at the same time that Schultz was railroading officers who did nothing wrong, but he protected this guy. After it was settled, pushed under the rug and covered up, this little gem was in line for a promotion and was skipped, but when his boy Colon met with Keller after Keller went into the runoff and before Colon threw his support behind Keller a favor was called in and a promotion took place.

This case was just as bad as the Torres, Boyd, Gomez and Ellis shootings, and it got no attention, because the accused had political juice and is up the ass of everyone in political places of influence, city brass, and entertainment. What’s worse is that in this case there is an actual court decision stating this mental patient was murdered and the officers were not to be indemnified. I know exactly who is being discussed and it’s spot on.

When you base mayoral candidates and lean on the police union to get your friend elected and it fails you do the next best thing. You immediately phone bank for the front runner (TIM KELLER) then have your friend meet with him to ask him to promote you when he gets elected. Making sure you rub elbows with state politicians and family members who ran for Bernalillo County Commissioner and who were former APD helps too.

This is why people who do nothing wrong get fucked to death and those deserving severe punishment get rewarded.

Fed Up -- I agree with you there's only so much favoritism a dept can take b4 it falls apart at the seams. That's why DOJ is visiting. There's a ripple affect with DOJ, it was suppose to cost less than a half million now were paying millions and you have Baca and Jaramillo rolling around unscathed. Baca getting his LT pay and checked out a few months then came back before the 90 days.

I bet there was no discipline cuz Schultz waiting on opinions cuz he don't have enough sense to clearly see excessive force was sued.

Another homicide hey Geier and Medina when are we gonna take our home, ALB back??? We have POS on street laugh at us cuz they know we can't do shit to them, we make more specialty units for 34s, why???? We look like we need pampered??? Lets strap on the badge and go do some police work and you control your head hunters in IA.

Another homicide in ALB come on??? When are you gonna get it??? When a loved one of yours gets killed??? That's usually what it takes. This city is burning and sad that the only ones who cares are a group of 34s who have seen this before.

When you have POS yelling at you "You can't touch me" that's when they need to know its different and take a ride to jail. Lets get this place under control.

You can always see who the fraud self serving dick sucking parasites are in Albuquerque during election time!
Notice how one coward murderer soy boy beta male mijo who killed an innocent mental patient cried so fucking loud about how his BFF Colon should be the mayor and was the only option for Albuquerque but as soon as he didn’t get the votes and police union endorsement this little bitch wrote a letter to the newspaper denouncing the union for endorsing Keller and crying about how it was unfair. You want to know what a slimy little prick that little asshole is? It was all about him because he knew his boy Colon would promote him to Sargent. Well this little two faced bag of puss maggot flipped real quick when he devised a plan to get Colon to make a deal with Keller to get him promoted anyway after being denied his little promotion because the 10th circuit court ruled that he Tazered an innocent man to death 10 times in 2 minutes and was denied his promotion as he should have been. He should have been charged with murder. In exchange for his undying ball washing and shameless groveling support of his idol Colon, Colon met with Keller at Barrelas coffee house prior to throwing his support to Keller in the election and made a deal in exchange for his support that Keller promote mijo eggplant head pubic hair sissy boy. Magically, shortly after the election little mijo gets promoted. Now during the whole election everyone had to listen to self server mijo pig punk fuck coward murderer talk about rising up Albuquerque and what is best for albuquerque. NOT NOW. NOT ANYMORE. Where is mijo and his canary? Nowhere to be found unless it’s a free meal or gala where they can have a good time, get free shit and promote themselves with politicians. The epitome of pretentious self serving selfish frauds. That is right! This punk is nowhere to be found in this election when it comes to fixing Albuquerque or its problems because now he has no problems. He got promoted and has what he wants. This little parasitic self serving creep and his Barbie girls little red car can now go to all the dinner events and never be at work as Albuquerque burns. This is the New Mexico attitude for you and it is exactly why nothing will ever get better. This place is the place where the most deficient and moronic are promoted and taken care of. They are put in positions where they shouldn’t be while the really competent individuals are shit on because they have honor and won’t put a short smelly political penis in their mouth to get what they want. You never see mijo and his canary show up at the grittier events lacking the glitz and glam in order to really help those who need it. Noooooo! It’s all about the black tie events that can promote record deals and political aspirations inside 5 star venues like the pretentious parasites that they are. The proof is in the actions or lack of actions in this case. Notice no campaigning for proper candidate this time because they don’t need anything this time. Andrew, you are a failed human. Everything you emulate is a paper machet fraud. You have the substance of a grease spot, the consistency of a wet noodle and the spine of an amoeba. You are the future of APD and this failed state. You and the 30 other failures who are in command positions with events in their personnel files that would disqualify them from the national fbi academy, a simple security clearance and what you all should have been fired for. Karma is a motherfucker you puke. This is the best Keller has.... Hahahaha

One more thing. Sean Wallace is going to be promoted by Keller to commander. The same Sean Wallace who shot the unarmed despondent man from the roof with a rifle for no reason, resigned from the state police and KILLED MIKE GOMEZ’S SON WHO WAS ALSO UNARMED. This clown shot the Gomez kid in the back from down the street with a rifle. Wasn’t this the reason for the DOJ coming? The DOJ has done nothing and these assholes keep getting rewarded with high paying jobs and pensions. Had the DOJ indicted a few of them, the message would have been sent and this shit would have ended because the right assholes would have left instead of the good ones who were fed up and sick and tired of the shit bags being covered for and promoted to eventually run this shit hole into the ground, destroying it. Does anyone wonder why there are so many incompetent assholes at APD? It is because it is run by assholes for assholes. Look at all of the supervisors. Sanchez who should have been charged with releasing NCIC info to a criminal was promoted to sargeant. Garcia who tampered with IA investigations will be repromoted to commander shortly after being demoted which was obviously the scheme the whole time because she is liked by the DOJ. That’s right, those in the DOJ think Garcia is their little angel. They aren’t even smart enough to see when someone is playing them right from the back seat or another Commander Sanchez’s car up in the Jemez mountains off duty. Hahahah yep. Ask her what they were doing that night up there. Talk about disrepute. Almost every promotion is an embarrassment and it will all come out next year when Keller runs to get re elected. Let any of these chumps open their mouths supporting Keller and all of their shit will be front and center.
