June 15, 2008, Albuquerque Journal, Metro Section, but NOT on Page 1 of that section, it is buried in either Page 2, 3 or 4 of that section, BUT IT IS THERE. TRUE INCIDENT. Howard don't play smears, that's what Albuquerque P.D. DOES (especially, the "Intelligence Unit")

I really would hate to speculate as to circumstances, but women are USUALLY much more careful drivers than men (ESPECIALLY POLICE WOMEN) so I would not be surprised if there were "special circumstances" involved (as with former PIO Arbogeist) which we may NEVER hear about. Discipline is TOP SECRET, don't cha know? Matter of National Security or something! ;o)

don't those SUV'S alert the driver if theres something behind the vehicle? does the DA'S office still have a "victim's advocate"? is the pope catholic?

She can run into me, anytime......

Most of those APD Marriages are, "Open marriages," anyway.......

At least she was a better spokes person that her predecesor, Beth Baland. Man, she and Diane Anderson could host a seminar are how to fumble through a news story.....

I think Trish did an excellent job as spokesperson for APD.

the point is she was negligent and an innocent baby almost lost its life- if you read the albq journal you will see discrepancies from what the reporter saw and what the apd police spokesman said- i find it outrageous that they are trying to weasel out of this one- eveeryone knows its the drivers responsibility to look for pedestrians when backing up

She'll be transferred to the nuclear weapon security unit. That way she can bail out the drunk cops who get arrested for bar brawls in Arkansas, instead of Schultz (I know NOTHING heir bergermeister) having to fly there with the bail money.

I'm not disputing that, but to blame everyone in APD for the actions of one person is not too brilliant.

Yes, I think there is more to it than is being posted, but it has nothing to do with SUV's, her prior presence as an APD spokesperson or other APD officers. It has everything to do with HER actions it appears, nobody else's, not withstanding APD's official statement. For whatever reason you have a hard-on for APD, and maybe for any manner of authority as well, or so it seems.

no not really but lets face it- it gets old hearing about the actions of one don't reflect on the many- seems these days it should be the action of the many don't reflect on the few-if this was an isolated incident im sure it would fly under the radar but with the mentality of APD whats good for the public is good for APD- ive lived in a few cities besides albuquerque and the departments image is rock bottom- the general attitude of other departments seems to be more "in step with the community" if you get my drift

I understand your frustration, and agree with much of it. However bad mouthing or penalizing all for the actions of a few is wrong. Instead of punishing everyone, those who screw up should be held accountable. Sadly this is not the age of personal responsibility. What a novel concept though huh?

i disagree penalizing the few for the actions of many is more like it- now whether youre a republican democrat conservative or liberal- i would think the public is fed up a complete overhaul of the department is needed- if you are going to point fingers i would think marty chavez should be looked at-along with his stooge cheif shultz- the enviroment of distrust and fear that is perpetuated on the public with their encounters of APD i won't go into-its been detailed enough- with that said- are there "good" officers within APD? of course -but i think its becoming a minority- look at the crime in this city- and then see the smug mug on cheif shutltz as he says that catching seat belt offenders is one of his top priorities- authority that is corrupt is a danger to everyone and should be examined thoroughly

I don't disagree with much of what you're saying. However, Schultz is a reflection on Marty, he who hired him, not on the good officers within APD. They cannot voice their opinions for fear of retaliation, they can only follow orders or leave the force.

Marty is another story, one of many volumes!

Talked to a few friends on the Force, they can't stand Marty. They say if the public only knew what goes on in Marty's private life.

sure but to say there are not goons on APD is naieve- quite a few im afraid to say- when the atmosphere of corrupt authority is lifted then APD might have better community relations- they need to stop using the us vs them mentality and treat the public with respect- many officers attitude is to harras and arrest-instead of serve and protect- the public is not ameal ticket for mayor marty or APD -once that gets thru to everyone including the public we will all be better off

I'm not saying there are no goons or miscreants on the force. I'm saying to blame the entire organization for the actions of a few is very unfair to those who are doing what we expect them to do, their jobs.

i agree with the exception that "to blame an entire organization for the actions of a few" part It's the actions of the manynot the few-otherwise we wouldn't be having this dialouge- i still say kick shultz out and overhaul the department and its a win-win situation and keep an eye on King Marty - wouldn't put a lot of faith in his integrity-this city needs no more "Marty Chavez Specials"
