Albuquerque Police Dept. To Start Manufacturing Crack So They Can Arrest The People They Sell It To

When Big Government goes off the rails, it’s almost like they’re smoking crack. In this case, that’s not far from the truth: The Albuquerque Police Department now plans to manufacture crack cocaine so they can sell it to people who are then arrested for “possession of crack.” (See court documents below for proof.) Wait a sec… Crack cocaine is an illegal substance, right? So now the police are going to possess it, manufacture it, sell it and then arrest citizens who buy it from them? Yep. That’s how some police tell themselves they are the “good guys” when they manufacture crack cocaine to sell to the “bad guys” who were making the crack cocaine before the police started making it. In other words, the Albuquerque Police Department will now be engaged in the manufacture and distribution of Schedule I Controlled Substances, meaning it is no longer deniable that “the […] Read More

Can’t Make This Up: Cop Caught Stealing Pot from Police Dept… on His Own Body Cam

by Matt Agorist Grants, NM — As the Free Thought Project pointed out many times before, police departments in America can legally discriminate against hiring individuals if their IQ is too high. Couple this with the fact that thieves aren’t always the sharpest tools in the toolbox, and you get the makings of a scenario like the one that unfolded in New Mexico last week. A Grants cop was caught on his own body cam stealing weed. Grants Police Department Sgt. Roshern C. McKinney, 33, was arrested last week after an investigation found that he’d stolen both money and marijuana from the police department. McKinney has since been charged with marijuana distribution, conspiracy, and felony embezzlement. State police also charged McKinney’s 23-year-old girlfriend Tanicka Gallegos-Gonzales, for drug distribution and conspiracy. Both were arrested in Albuquerque and booked into the Sandoval County Detention Center, according to KOB. Public Information Officer for the New Mexico State […] Read More

Cop Finally Fired After Refusing to Turn on Body Camera When He Shot Woman

An investigation that began back in April determined that Officer Jeremy Dear’s camera was intentionally disabled right before he shot and killed Mary Hawkes, 19. Now, Albuquerque Police Chief Eden has fired Officer Dear, as part of what is being called a “zero tolerance” policy on police camera use during citizen interactions. Officer Dear says that he is being treated unfairly, but in three separate incidences, Dear has claimed that his body camera has malfunctioned. In each of these incidences the Albuquerque cop has used force against a suspect. This latest case involves the shooting of a 19-year-old teenage girl. The personnel file for Officer Dear says that in January 2013, his camera “malfunctioned” during the course of him “breaking up” a fight, in which Dear “did strike (the 22-year-old suspect) several times in his facial area with a closed fist.” Officer Dear said the man was “resisting arrest.” […] Read More

Albuquerque Cop Who Killed Homeless Man Will Retire With Full Benefits

Joshua Krause Activist Post Last March, the killing of James Boyd by the Albuquerque Police Department shocked the nation. The public got to see with their very own eyes, how callous and vicious some police officers can be. Boyd, who was widely known as a schizophrenic, had been camping out in the foothills of Albuquerque, New Mexico (doing nothing and bothering nobody) when he was approached by several heavily armed members of the local police department. What ensued was one of the most despicable displays of police violence in recent history, but has since been overshadowed by the controversial shooting of Michael Brown. After a long standoff with police, during which Boyd was armed with a small camping knife, video showed the police gunning down the homeless man. The footage of the event appeared to show Boyd surrendering before the police shot him in the back. Six months after […] Read More
