So what if your poems are
not profound at all?
if what seems to you so perfectly phrased
is just run of the mill thinking,
and those mysteries,
questions
you see in trees and flowers
really donít need asking?
What if youíre just
a lower case bard?

Whatís the point anyway
of writing what you think about?
Most people would rather
just get on with it,
not have you waste your time
brooding
at the keyboard.
Heart says,
Who decides
what questions should,
or should not,
be asked?
What yardstick is the one to measure thoughts?
What clock should tick
your minutes into hours,
move your hands
in circles numbered only up to twelve?

What about how you feel
when fingers dance along the keys,
thoughts sparkle in your blood,
breath moves warm and easy,
and your jaw relaxes,
freed from saying
meaningless things,
and lips part
into a smile
that reaches all the way down
to your toes.

Case dismissed!

It's not the right time to be sober
Now the idiots, have taken over
Spreading like a social cancer
Is there an answer?

Mensa membership conceding
Tell me why and how are all the stupid
people breeding
Watson it's really elementary,
the industrial revolution
Has flipped the bitch on evolution

The benevolent and wise are being thwarted ostracized
What a bummer
The world keeps getting dumber
Insensitivity is standard
And faith is being fancied over reason

Darwin's rolling over in his coffin
Cause the fittest are surviving much less often
Now everything it seems to be reversing
And it's worsening.

Someone plopped a steamer in the gene pool
Now angry mob mentality's no longer the exception

It's the rule and I'm starting to feel a lot like,
Charlton Heston.

Stranded on a primate planet.
Apes and orangutans that ran it to the ground
With the generals and the armies that obeyed them
Followers following fables
Philosophies that enable them to rule without regard

There's no point for democracy when
ignorance is celebrated
Political scientists get the same one-vote as some Arkansas inbred
Majority rule, don't work in mental institutions.
Sometimes the smallest,
softest voice carries the grand
Biggest Solutions

What are we left with?
A nation of god fearing pregnant nationalists.
Who feel it's their duty, to populate the homeland
Pass on traditions
How to get ahead religions.
And prosperity via simpleton culture
The idiots have taken over...

Officers at Alamogordo Department of Public Safety allege superiors asked them to change accident report information.

Alamogordo Daily News
By Duane Barbati, Staff Writeralamogordonews.com
Posted: 08/25/2012 10:31:17 PM MDT

It remains unclear if the New Mexico State Police Investigations Bureau has concluded their investigation into accusations that Alamogordo Department of Public Safety personnel tampered with public records.

It is alleged that ADPS may have tampered with public records after a fatal accident Dec. 1, 2009, on the South White Sands Boulevard overpass at the Charlie T. Lee Memorial Relief Route. The accident resulted in the death of Garrett Stoll, 32, of Longmont, Colo.

It is alleged that ADPS personnel were asked by administrators to change information on the crash report to indicate that the overpass was not icy at the time of the fatal accident.

An email to the Daily News from NMSP spokesman Lt. Robert McDonald stated that "No we (NMSP) do not have any active investigations on ADPS."

McDonald also stated in the email that "No one was charged in past cases and we are not assuming anything for ADPS."

An email to the Daily News from New Mexico Department of Public Safety spokesman Tony Lynn, on behalf of NMDPS cabinet secretary Gorden E. Eden Jr., stated that "At this time we have nothing to report, but please stay in touch."

The Otero County Sheriff's Office is reportedly aware of the tampering investigation, but is unaware of any conclusion or outcome of it, Sheriff Benny House said.

According to an NMSP supplemental report obtained by the Daily News in February, the investigation is ongoing and will be documented in further supplemental reports.

The Daily News in June formally requested, under the state Inspection of Public Records Act, that the NMSP Records Custodian office allow the newspaper to inspect and obtain any additional records pertaining to the investigation.

The NMSP Records Custodian office responded to the Daily News in writing that "Your written request has been received, and NMDPS will respond to your request after the records have been located and reviewed."

As of press time, the Records Custodian office has not provided any further records of the investigation to the Daily News.

Sources close to the investigation who wish to remain anonymous stated that 12th Judicial District Attorney Diana Martwick obtained a copy of the investigation report and other documents related to the investigation in 2011, but turned it over to a prosecutor within her office sometime this year.

Martwick said she has no comment on the case or the investigation concerning ADPS.

"I have no comment," she said. "It has not been closed on our side yet. I can't make comments on stuff that's not closed. I am not the one investigating it right now because I had given it to another person in our office. As far as I know it's still open."

The fatal accident

Stoll, 32, of Longmont, was driving his 2005 Ford F-350 pickup truck and towing a fifth-wheel camper trailer. He was driving westbound on the U.S. Highway 54/70 overpass that crosses the Charlie T. Lee Memorial Relief Route with his 30-year-old wife and two daughters, 18 months and 6 years old, when he lost control of the pickup and crossed the eastbound lanes around 8:30 p.m. Dec. 1, 2009.

The vehicle rolled off the south side of the road and down an embankment. Stoll was ejected from the pickup and died at the scene.

Stoll's wife was wearing a seat belt at the time of the accident and their two children were secured in child safety car seats. They were treated at Gerald Champion Regional Medical Center for minor injuries and released.

At the time of the accident, official records indicated that Stoll was pronounced dead at 1 a.m. Dec. 2, 2009, by a field deputy from the Office of the Medical Investigator.

According to Stoll's autopsy report from OMI in Albuquerque, Stoll died as a result of his injuries sustained in the accident, as well as asphyxiation.

A civil suit was filed in November 2011 by attorneys representing the plaintiffs, Stoll's wife and children, in the First Judicial District Court in Santa Fe against defendants Ford Motor Co. and the New Mexico Department of Transportation. It alleges Ford failed to recall the vehicle to enhance the safety of it, according to court records.

The suit also alleges that NMDOT had control over and maintains responsibility for the dangerous conditions of the roadway, but not limited to the median and lack of barrier on the overpass, according to records obtained by the Daily News.

According to court records, Stoll's attorneys also stated that he was operating his vehicle in a safe and foreseeable manner, and the occupants wore seat belts or were otherwise secured in child safety seats.

When Stoll reached the area of the overpass, the undetectable icy conditions on the roadway caused the vehicle to skid, according to records.

According to nmcourts.gov 's website, the case has been reassigned to Judge Raymond Z. Ortiz due to the excusal of Judge Barbara J. Vigil on Aug. 10, 2012.

A few months after the accident, several officers went to detective Lt. Lee Wilder -- who was the head of all investigations at ADPS -- with issues concerning the accident and orders allegedly given by superiors to them to change the crash report information.

Wilder told officers that they needed to go through the chain of command and report it to then-ADPS director Sam Trujillo, according to the NMSP Investigations Bureau report. Wilder communicated the issues to Trujillo about the officers' concerns, but discovered several months later that officers didn't report it to Trujillo because they were scared of retaliation.

Trujillo officially retired from ADPS on July 1, 2011. Kelly O. Wallis -- who was a captain, or second in command at ADPS -- was named director.

Part 3 of 3

According to the investigation report obtained by the Daily News, ADPS fireman Anthony Lopez, a first responder to the accident scene, retired from the department, but also spoke to Wilder about what occurred at the accident.

ADPS officer Kenneth Funk told NMSP investigators that during briefing officers were told to keep an eye on the overpass because the weather was getting progressively worse.

Funk told investigators during an interview in 2011 that he requested through dispatch for additional units to help close eastbound traffic to the overpass because of the icy conditions and vehicles sliding on the roadway.

After Funk requested additional units, his patrol sergeant, Sgt. Tracy Corbett, requested Funk call her on her cellular telephone. Funk explained the conditions on the overpass and Corbett told him that she would call him back in a minute, according to the report.

Corbett called Funk back about five minutes later and told him to open the overpass and the city would salt it later, according to the report.

Funk opened the overpass, then about 45 minutes later the accident involving Stoll and his family occurred.

When Funk, Lopez and other first responders arrived at the scene, they believed Stoll was still alive but pinned underneath the pickup truck, according to the investigation report.

They attempted to use a cable from a truck to pull Stoll's truck up enough to free him, but Corbett and then-Lt. Gary Smith, a patrol supervisor at the time, told them to stop because it was too dangerous, according to the report.

Corbett told investigators that Funk never contacted her or voiced any concern about shutting down the overpass, nor did Funk shut it down.

Corbett told investigators that once American Medical Response announced that the victim was deceased that it became a crime scene and she didn't allow officers to do anything else, according to the report.

Corbett also told investigators that she was unable to agree with Funk's report stating the roads were icy, but she couldn't say the same for the overpass.

Funk stated to investigators that Smith told him Smith didn't like the fact that Funk had put icy road conditions on the crash report. According to Funk's statement to investigators, Smith wanted Funk to change his crash report.

Smith told investigators that he doesn't recall Funk shutting down the overpass or requesting a salt or sand truck on Dec. 1, 2009.

Smith stated he absolutely didn't change Funk's report, nor does he recall whether or not he asked Funk to ever change his crash report. He also doesn't recall meeting with any one of his officers or anyone in his chain of command and disagreeing with what was on the report.

Since the December 2009 accident, Smith was promoted to captain in July 2011, which is second in command to Wallis. But Smith retired from the department last February. Wallis on Aug. 16 submitted his intent to retire. Wallis' last official day as director is Aug. 31, but he officially retires from the department on Oct. 19 because he has accrued vacation time.

The Daily News attempted to contact Wallis for this story, but as of press time he had not returned telephone calls seeking comment.

The City Commission

City commissioners met in a June executive session to discuss the situation involving several issues at ADPS but were unable to vote or decide on whether to remove Wallis as director because of a 3 to 3 vote among commissioners. The seven-member commission had only six commissioners at the time because of Aaron D. Rance stepping down due to unrelated reasons from his District 2 seat.

It will be interesting to see if an investigation is ever completed, and will all the officers who made command decisions that night be promoted and then retire.

Then you go as some dumb azzhole, uncaring for the public's safety.
Lights, at least to within a few blocks of a call causes no issues with you clowns trying to sneak up on some local dopers here.
But, would anyone suspect cops these days to have a shred of brains, or common sense?

You're often worse than the people you go after-persue, but of course that's nothing new.

Look at that NY Empire State Building incident a couple of days ago.
That jerk Bloomberg wet his drawers at the so wonderful jobs (so called}police did on that one.

Cops responding to Domestic Violence, Burglary in progress, Bank Robery, Terrorist activity. Hope those helped.

All Law Enforcment are reqired to wear their sea belt. It is he law! Cops are human and break laws at times also. Wearing a seat belt or not is not a sign of arrogance. We all have free will, he chose to use his free will to not wear a seat belt, you chose your free will to be ignorant!

Just when you think there may be a topic of importance, something worth discussing, the nasty little children get in front of their computers and start trading insults. I wish your keepers would limit your computer time or at least put some sort of parental locks on your keyboards. Good night, kids.
