Since the Feds are here in ABQ checking on how APD trains its cops why not check all NM LE training.

Better yet why not set up a NM state LE training program and require ALL LE, state police, tribeal police, city, county and any other LE to ALL go through it.

That includes all current LE from the lowest level to the top;

typical racist, doesn't have the ability to actually read the article. there was no beating, just a traffic stop because their vehicle matched a suspect vehicle, the car occupants are suing because it was a felony stop and it scared them.

Study up before posting....The State does mandate training to all NM Certified Law Enforcement Officers from the top down. But they can't tell the tribal (not tribeal) officers what to do.

Spoken like someone who believes everything they hear via the rumor mill. Do a little research. Find out what actually happened. Ask for the taped video..it's available for viewing if you qualify for access. Listen to the emergency dispatch taping. There are 'seconds' of response involved...have you ever in your life responded to an emergency situation to protect the lives of citizens you are responsible for? Obviously no. The description radioed to the responding officers is sketchy at best, with 'seconds' of respond time alerted out to officers available. Me thinks thou does protest too much

Harsh...this is a serious problem. Investigative techniques are required here and will happen. These criminals will be caught. Make no mistake about that. It's just a matter of time an citizen cooperation. It makes no difference where the crime is committed. The offense is the same. The punishment will be severe. It will stop. In the end? The violaters will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law...be it county, city or reservation. We all have the same goal. We refuse to be victims. And, those that chose to violate our right to safety? Go to hell.

Read how many incidents occur involving racist actions, and those are only a few that the Farmington Times will print. One only has to live in Farmington to understand this and those that deny racism exists are the city leaders, businesses, agencies and the police. Just read the lack of information and skewed articles from the local news then one can see the ommision of truth that lacks at all levels to the detriment of minorities, who are in effect the majority in Farmington. Yet look at the race of city officials, agency heads and business people, all white and they say there is no racism and the Dily doesn't print about it. So who do you believe?

Really, if true they sure missed the boat on traffic control during any type of accident.

Closing entire roads and freeways instead of one or two lanes for hours and hours is not good LEing while investigating an accident.

And that is the norm here in NM and for sure ABQ.
