You are right, inbreed hillbillies like yourself donít ever get DWIs. Since your dad and mom (dadís sister) had a high tolerance for alcohol it does not affect you like others.

I don't see anything on the report that states he's Mexican. Don't know if you are aware or not but there are other latin races besides Mexican you moron! His race has nothing to do with what he has done.

Remember the punk cop that was fired from APD for ruffing up the reporter? Well guess what, he was hired by another PD. The list goes on and on!
Unfortunately, this keeps happening. It is called the Gypsy Cop syndrome. It goes like this....Officer gets in trouble. It cost lots of money and it will take time to administer an internal investigation. So the Dept head will tell the officer to resign of be fired. If the officer resigns, he/she keeps the law enforcement certification. That officer can go on to another agency. The new agency may do a background, but might never find out what really happened. So the beat goes on. The NM Law Enforcement Board needs to do something about it. I know they are trying, but this is getting crazy.

The same thing goes on in pretty much all fields that have board certified licenses. Doctors, teachers, lawyers, veterinarians, etc, etc, etc. The list is virtually inexhaustible. The fact that cops are supposed to protect and not be the cause of trouble for citizens in any way is what is most troubling. The teacher issue is probably worse in the long run however, cops are 'sworn to protect' yet nobody ever says whom they are protecting. Hmmm.
I'm just sayin.

This is crazy. This clown is fired for his conduct, then is hired by another police agency. This clown needs to move to another country. You dont rehire people like this. He never should have been hired anyway. He doesnt belong in law enforcement. H belongs in an environment where he can be monitored and supervised on a daily basis. Basicly, he needs a baby sitter. It's unfortunate that Bernalillo will more than likely reap the benifits of hiring a problem child that needs some jail time to get his attention.

Police officer drinking on the job and willing to work at the same time. That is purely crazy. Why would a person who was to serve the community in which he works perform below minimum standards? Risking other people's lives when patrolling or investigating a crime scene. This cannot be tolerated nor brushed under the rug. This individual should be terminated, forced to attend DWI programs and pay fines......

I see you have not lived in valencia county long and have no clue how the political powers work. spouting off here on a message board that ypopur ip can me tracked is not the way to do it. riveria has been known to pull his authority to see who is the problems and make them go away

many questions go unanswered in the BFPD. When did the DWI incident happen? Was there an accident? If there was an accident, did it result in injury to person or property? What brought the client to the attention of the police? Where did the DWI take place? Was it close to home, close to the drinking location? Were there multiple drinking locations? What exactly were the clients' drinking and /or drug use like prior to the DWI incident? Were they taking any prescription medication? Does their BAC as in the police report correspond with what the individual claim they were drinking. Keep in mind, however, that BAC content may be misleading. Was blood or breathalyzer used? What were the circumstances leading up to the DWI arrest? Was the client drinking at a celebration of some sort? Was there any other occupants such as a SFPO named? Did the client perceive that her or she was too impared by ETOH or drugs to operate a motor vehicle? What is the chronological history using ETOH, drugs, or whatever was on board used, what quantities? Any prior DWI's ....this BFPO needs some serious time in the slammer...

Dear Sir lisette or Ma'am, this is an open forum and all who enter their opinion is very valid. I am one of those people. I will continue to voice my opinion and if you are so narrow-minded to the reality of free-speech, please go to Iran and join a government who censors everyone's opinions....
