Rebellion In The USA - Protesters Attempt To Arrest Albuquerque Police Chief

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Submitted by Mike Krieger of Liberty Blitzkrieg blog,

There is something very, very wrong with the Albuquerque, New Mexico police department, and the citizens have just about had enough. Before I get into the heart of this story, I need to provide you with a little background. The Albuquerque Police Department (APD) is well known for its outrageous and inappropriate use of violence. So much so that it has been under investigation by the Department of Justice, which wrote a letter to the Mayor of Albuquerque on April 10, 2014 condemning the police force. Here’s an excerpt from the letter:

Based on our investigation, we have reasonable cause to believe that APD engages in a pattern or practice of use of excessive force, including deadly force, in violation of the Fourth Amendment and Section 14141. Our investigation included a comprehensive review of APD’s operations and the City’s oversight systems. We have determined that structural and systemic deficiencies—including insufficient oversight, inadequate training, and ineffective policies— contribute to the use of unreasonable force. At the conclusion of this letter, we outline the remedial measures that we believe are necessary to ensure that force is used in accordance with the Constitution. In some instances, these recommendations build on measures and initiatives that are already underway within the department.

Just prior to the release of the letter, APD officers shot in the back and killed a homeless man named James M. Boyd, who was camping in the Albuquerque foothills. More recently (and after the DOJ’s letter was sent), 50-year-old Air Force veteran Armand Martin was killed outside of his home by a SWAT team in a standoff with police. It seems the APD is incapable of solving any sort of dispute without a citizen ending up dead.

It makes you wonder what is up with law enforcement in New Mexico in general. If you recall, earlier this year I highlighted a horrific incident in Deming, New Mexico in my post: How a Routine Traffic Stop in New Mexico Turned into a Nightmare of Torture for David Eckert. 

So back to Albuquerque. The people are rightfully very upset, which led to a city council meeting being taken over on May 5th protesters. This display of civil disobedience even led to an attempt to serve Police Chief Gorden Eden with an citizen’s arrest warrant. As a result of the protest, the city council moved to prevent protests at their latest meeting, which may lead to free speech related lawsuits. You have to watch the following video:

 

People have just about had enough, and civil disobedience will only grow greater in the months and years ahead. This is what happens when a nation morphs into a deranged, oligarchic police state. This is also why the Bundy Ranch standoff was such a huge deal, as I noted in one of my most popular posts of 2014: Why the Standoff at the Bundy Ranch is a Very Big Deal.

How human beings can not understand the facts written (Bill of Rights) down for them is very frustrating.

Most peace keeping officers should understand; First, they are not "More Special" they are as sovereign as you and I; second, a human being has rights.

Arm Yourselves.

Police are now largely selected and then trained as being more special than the rest of us.  They see their own safety as paramount, and all of us as criminals who just haven't been caught.  Protect and serve my ass.

A local plod in Texas just shot and killed a 93 year old woman that was alleged to have been "brandishing a firearm"... They fired the guy, but no manslaughter charges have or will be filed against him... We live in a fucked up country when the cops shoot first and never ask questions...

Back in the day when I was a resident of 'burque, I can remember hearing stories of APD. They would beat people randomly. Threaten without cause. Basically, they are thugs behind badges. You are supposed to feel relatively safe with a cop nearby. Not true in Albuburque, you felt an unease and it was real.

"New Mexico, one step from a third world country."

Literally and figuratively. 

New Mexico is also known for its aggressive asset forfeiture policy.  (Texas too, for that matter.)  So if you happen to find yourself driving through either of those states, leave all your cash at home, drive a rental car so they can't steal your personal car, and do not have anything of any value whatsoever on your person.

The Obozo Admin is busily turning all local PDs...

Into militant statist "Brown Shirt" goons as fast as possible...

By having DHS shower all manner of military toys on them.

This is insurance for later when the Admin commands...

The cops can get away with this shit because their is little to no cost to them to act this way. When those who are directly affected begin to put a cost back onto these cops, then the number of police brutality incidences will decline.

Most PDs now have more than enough military weapons...

And fire-power to counter almost any number of local citizens.

True...but soldiers were using all that equipment only a few years ago, and every time a new piece of equipment is introduced, soldiers are the test subjects who use said equipment, and the first to complain about all the flaws they discover. Of course, all their complaints go unnoticed by the govt, but I'm sure they'd be more than happy to talk about what types of situations would turn those monsters into death traps.

There was actually a movie about this called "The Pentagon Wars", which described how the M2 Bradley was described as both a "deathtrap" and "crematorium".

Every monster has an Achilles Heel, and you can bet your ass the Feds didn't tell these local departments a damn thing. Information is still the world's most valuable commodity.

'God' does not exist for the benefits of humans. 'God' is within humans. When humans realize their true nature, then things will change. For those who cannot understand, this does not mean humans 'are' god. 'God' acts through humans when the 'individual' human has perceived his/her 'essence'. This 'essence' does not belong to the individual. Hope that clarifies. Sadly, most humans live in fear and so, due to fear and therefore unable to perceive their 'essence', use all means of imagination to scapegoat their responsibility for their own salvation. Hence the popularity of 'Christianity'. Unfortunately, the Jesus that walked the earth 2000 years ago would not recognize nor understand this 'religion' created by humans...

If you're waiting for God to intervene you will be waiting a long time. You're expected to actively participate to solve your own problems not sit passively waiting for devine intervention. God appears to be pretty hands off and when He does intervene its pretty heavy handed.

All of you should come to Indiana. I saw three cop cars with a station wagon pulled over and noticed that the back hatch was up. I assumed they were looking for some sort of drugs, as we're nearly the meth capital of the Midwest. We like to call it the Methbasket rather than Breadbasket at this point...anyway, I notice that the car is jacked up with a wheel off, and one police officer is changing a pregnant lady's tire while one is talking to her and the other watching traffic to make sure everyone gives the tire-changer a lane. 

Made me think of Andy and Barney...and be glad I live in the middle of nowhere, where I know my police officers and have some of them as neighbors. Now I left a bigger city on the east coast, and a lot of the police there thought they were enforcers. Some were the biggest assholes around. It's a shame that all it takes for evil to grow is for the good people to stand around and do nothing. Good on the protestors of Alberquerque.

That being said, there are rumored to be weapons in my house...just in case...

Yes, they have firepower but we have numbers. Massive civil disobedience cannot be stopped with weapons. Refuse to comply. If everyone (very large number) refuses to comply they are powerless. Don't participate, don't play their game. Don't eat in their restaraunts, don't buy their crap, refuse to pay taxes. If everyone bands together we could win but we need a very large number.

@ CaptainObvious: Military personnel are conditioned thoroughly to kill without conscience. It's video game psychology taken to another level.  Good police departments try their darnedest to avoid recruiting militroids -- ex-military who lack any conscience -- because of the headaches it creates for them when things go wrong on the street.  Militroids are not what you want for community policing.  Unfortunately, no interview technique is perfect, not even Targetted Selection, and some sneaky nutbars always squeak through.  The process of weeding out dangerous psychopaths is very expensive and time-consuming. Still, the most important thing is to set a good example, and that responsibility lies with the brass, setting the tone for the rest of the organization.  Basically, if you have a lot of trouble with a significant number of officers, the root of the problem generally lies at the top. It is important for executive officers to come down hard on officers found to have used excessive force. "Not only must justice be done; it must also be seen to be done."  Rgds

This is not an opinion, this is documented fact. Many years of research have gone into figuring out how to train our soldiers to kill without conscience. That doesn't mean they don't HAVE a conscience, or that they are dangerous or bad on their own. But they are very carefully honed and dangerous tools, and like any dangerous tool, it really depends on who directs it to which targets. You just gotta make sure you're in their "us" not their "them" category.

Child abuse creates soldiers.

Look at the correlation between those who enlist from the south and those who are beaten as children.

Bad parenting creates the enforcer class for the elites.

Sister tika - Six years. And I shred my DD-214 and (not so) honorable discharge years ago because I woke up and saw just what military 'service' is all about which is to advance the agenda of bankers and corporate rapists like Raytheon, Lochheed-Martin et al. Anyone who would enlist or encourage their children to enlist is a dolt.

Calling this a "rebellion" implies the people were usurping power unjustly.  This was actually a sovereign ass-kicking.  The sovereign people of New Mexico revoked their consent from their local government and took it back into their own hands to correct a major problem in the servant class.

Having been in my 20's during the Vietnam era, I agree with you that the big lies and duping of the public on a massive scale were started then....from the contrived "body counts" to the Gulf of Tonkin incident to Brown & Root profiteering (Haliburton and Cheney).

 

Back then the fear was the red menace, the domino theory, etc. Now we have massive "homeland sekurity" and Islamic terrorists are the 'danger'.

 

LBJ can be viewed as setting a new ever declining moral tone which has now culminated with the current D.C. leaders.

Reminds me of a late December night back in 1999.  I got pulled over around midnight just outside of Roswell because my U-Haul had expired tags.  Deputy Dawg gave me 20 questions and then decided to have me step out of the vehicle because he thought he smelled a hint of marijuana.  I consented to a search of the bags in the cab because I just wanted to be on my way, but Mr. Policeman still wasn't satisfied with tossing my belongings on the side of the road and decided to call in the K-9.

And so we waited an hour with me shivering in sub-freezing temps because I was wearing a T-shirt and the nice policeman wouldn't let me put on a coat that was lying five feet from me because he thought I might be "trying to hide contraband".  The whole time was spent listening to Deputy Dawg trying to coerce me into confessing to possession of a non-existent small amount of MJ or else he would be forced to throw the book at me.

The K-9 finally showed up and went in and out of the cab and around the truck and its genius handler thought he had a hit.  They asked to search the back and by this time I was pissed and literally ready to piss my pants (had been drinking a lot of coffee).  I unlocked the back of the 24 foot truck and told them to have at it.

They stared at my wall of shit for a few minutes (I'm a messy packer) and decided to let me go with a stern warning.

I attribute this to a failure of public schooling and parenting.  The public schools we are all expected to attend should have prepared us to know how to defend our basic rights.  And our parents should have warned us and passed down the knowledge kept by their parents about our fundamental rights as Americans.

I take responsibility for myself and my children, and I will make sure they know the law.

The schools teach that they are the "authority" and that you must consent/submit.  I personally do everything I can to undo the programming my kids get at school.  I wish I could somehow afford a private school but I just don't have an extra $1500 per month.  I give my oldest reading assignments that have nothing to do with what he would otherwise be learning at school in an attempt to open his eyes before it is too late.  I think it is helping.

In high school they had a program for a couple years called 'pennies for thomas' or something stupid that was collected in homeroom every morning.  All we really knew is that once enough money was made they would rescue a dog or something.  Well they finally got enough money and Thomas was rescued.  The next year they had that dog sniffing our backpacks once a month during random classroom searches.  Looking back it may have been voluntary but I can't imagine the hell you'd catch for standing up for your rights.  None of us even questioned our rights in that environment with the teachers showing us the way to lay over.

That cop probably saw your U-haul as a juicy target for highway robbery.  He was just itching for an excuse.  While moving with a U-Haul, I took a long detour towards Supai on the Grand Canyon.  Ended up on an Indian reservation out in the middle of nowhere.  Got an Indian cop on my tail almost immediately.  I drove with robotic perfection but after about 20 miles he pulled me over anyway for weaving.  Then he got into a lot of questions about what was in the van, why I had the van locked, what was worth stealing in there ("just my bike"), etc.  He left me alone shortly after I told him, in a nicer way, that I was on my way to start a  bigshot Federal Government job that he had no hope of understanding so he might as well not ask about it.  I am certain that if I hadn't said that, he would have robbed me of everything I owned and seeking any justice in Indian court would have been even more Kafkaesque and ultimately futile than seeking justice in Federal court.  Because that's how my ancestors treated his ancestors.  The gram of weed which I had forgotten about would have sealed my fate.

I have heard similar stories about Indian cops in NM.  Can't afford books for their kids but they can afford $50,000 SUVs for robbing whitey.  Oh well, at least they're not homicidal maniacs.

A lot of the cops on the rez near me are whities.  Last time I got pulled over by one, it was because I had a license plate light out, and he was looking for an excuse to pull anybody so he could rack up a DWI arrest.

I wouldn't want the job.  As a low-level trooper you're sent out there to protect the masters, to get placed into impossible situations.  I really like that police finally decided that it wasn't worth it to engage in high-speed chases; of course, lawsuits helped "adjust" their thinking, but the point here is that one has to really look at it along the lines of when it's really necessary to use deadly force.  There was an incident in a smaller city that I'd once lived in in which a cop (one?) essentially blocked some guy (drunk?) and the guy ran his car into this fence (chainlink I think) and was basically penned in.  The cop ended up shooting the guy.  I don't believe the guy had a gun.

I don't believe that all cops can kill someone and brush it off.  I think some of these events can haunt someone for the rest of their lives.  I detest the very notion of having to put people in that situation.

But as someone else commented, it's a culture thing, and if it seems like more than one or two people then it's the "leadership," and that "leadership" should get pinned down and forced to correct or be tossed out.

Oh, and now I se that in that city someone running for city council that wants to clean up the downtown, to make it safer (I'm getting old, I've heard this same old shit for WAAY too long now).  Was wanting to write in and say that that's not what is meant by "throw out the bums!"   Anyway, it's the same mentality- make the streets safe for the priviledged: until the time when they get overrun...

The situation is worse than it appears, IMO

First, we have selected police being trained in Israel by the IDF, under OPERATION SWORD. This is not a joke or a fake.Think about Israeli treatment of Palestinians. I strongly suspect this is how the police think of us.

Next, there was a shooting incident where a female office knocked on a door for no obvious reason. The teenager asked who was there, got no answer, went and opened the door, and was promptly shot dead. "She was afraid for her life because she mistook the Wii controller for a gun". Sounds to me like the pistol was out and aimed, and whoever answered the door was going to die. This is similar to a gang initiation killing - "Do you have what it takes to BE ONE OF US?" This is a consistent concern about the escalating number of police homicides - are the killings for practice and/or psychological preparation?

Third, the bullet purchases. The whine "you don't practice with hollow point ammo" is pure bunk. Any thinking person practices with the duty round. That said, you don't get 1.6 billion rounds just for duty practice. That's a serious lot of killing they bought.

Fourth, the number of pets getting killed for no obvious reason. Again this seems like a planned, considered terrorist tactic, intended to cause anguish and feelings of helplessness in those so victimized, while limiting public outcry - "It was just a dog". A lot of people like their pets more than most people, but for others it is easy to underestimate the effect this has on the family.

Fifth, the consistent judicial and oversight support for these actions would indicate a substantial level of official support for these actions. The perpetrators are NEVER held to the same standard as civilians, and usually it's a 2-week paid vacation while the review board exonerates them.

It seems the people of Albuquerque have realized something - A wrongful death lawsuit does not bring back the wrongfully dead.

Repost of old comment because I haven't seen mention of "stress payments" as being an inspiration for APD shootings.  Don't know if they still do this.  Probably.  Your comment is also interesting because the cops are toadying up to our despotic foreign overlords.

You can always trust the pigs to support the status quo no matter how evil it becomes.  They are always on the wrong side of history.  They oppose people-powered revolutions to the bitter end but will always be the first to support a junta or even an invasion, if the foreigners are more vicious.  The cops in Nazi-occupied France jumped at the chance to lick jackboots, crack skulls, crush souls, and send their brothers to the camps.  This is what they live for.  One of the main job requirements is a total lack of unity consciousness, very Us vs. Them, which prevents them from having any empathy at all.  And everyone is a crimminal except those who write and enforce the laws.  This is a fundamental axiom which must not be questioned.  Which is the reason for another job requirement- low IQ.

Here is an upper bound on how much your life is worth to big-city cops:  500 clownbux.  That's the "stress payment" which the Albuquerque PD started giving to officers who shot people.  Shootings surged by 400%!

the Grand Junction hoe down has a real possiblity of blowing up over the fact that one gengleman, fed up woth the law persons and the courts, demanded that the sheriff arrest 4 Judges for not being in compliance with the U. S. Constitution amoung other picadillos. 

Needless to say this did not sit well with TPTB over here on the wesrern slope of this state. Furthere, needless to say the Grand Junction daily sentiental has not seen fit to mention this little item to the people other than a (kauff) slight Boo Hoo.

In the spectrum of isms, fascism is on the far right, where business owns the state. Communism is on the far left. where the state owns all business. I understand that you would prefer to think of all evils as on the left, but like the Catholic Church advises, moderation is best in all things. Excess leads to an occasion of sin. We can hardly have an intelligent discussion unless we understand the terms we are throwing around. The Nazi's party name was intended to deceive.

Left or right, there is plenty of blame to go around, if assignment of blame is required. It does concern me that so many are so ill-educated that they don't understand the end result of the politics they endorse. Besides that, the populace at large has been deeply indoctrinated for many years to lean heavily towards the right and they're ripe for the takeover that's been happening in incremental steps for a long time. The Rockefellers et al must be pleased. Their slow and careful work over the years is paying off big. We are already required to present proof of identity on many occasions; when you travel, when you seek medical or dental attention, when you apply for a job, when you transact nearly any business - the mark of the beast for you Christians out there. My daughter married and to change her social security number into her married name she is required to give her parents' names and social security numbers.  It all echos of the 3rd Reich. I'm surprised they didn't ask her if any of her grandparents or great grandparents were Jewish, though I think the internal enemy will be some other group this time around. When I called CenturyLink to get internet connection when we moved, when asked for my social security number I gave them a number that was off. They knew I was mistaken at once, so they are tied into the government computers to the extent that they have access to your social security numbers, a marriage of business and government.

That's because the bastards probably pulled your credit without telling you.  Comcast pulled that on me and I raised holy hell.  Not only did I get the impermissible and unauthorized inquiry deleted, I replaced them as service provider.  Yes, the "marriage" of business and government is certainly an unholy alliance.

Its a contagion. Miami cops spent 350+ rounds to kill two guys, yesterday, I think? Shot up a whole neighborhood in broad daylight. Stories like this keep popping up. First its pepper spray and batons on non-violent protesters. Now its bullets. I can't count the number of times I have heard policemen say that they are not allowed to interpret the law, that they only asnwer complaints and let the courts sort it out. Looks like that is a thing of the past. 

I wouldn't worry so much about how few people are paying attention, except that history (in my estimation) is more full of examples of rogue police actions than any other single type of event. One wonders...what are the cops so afraid of?

They're afraid of us and rightly so.

He really took the memo seriously! It's VEILED POLICE STATE. Saving the SS stuff until further orders from NWO.

We should force our legislators to pas law requiring urine testing for illicit steroids for a police, then fire those who fail. 

There! Problem solved.
