Shoot out in Mid Town
Ruidoso NM is in Decline

Ruidoso, NM

#1 Oct 4, 2013
Being a resident of the low class, wrong side of the railroad track Ruidoso Downs. I am starting to ask and wonder about what's happening to Ruidoso. I hear disparaging remarks about "The Downs" all the time. However, some of the things taking place in the Up Scale, Blue Blood, Village of Ruidoso New Mexico this year is causing me to pause. It's causing me to think that by living in the "The Downs", we may just be the Next Little Aspen. Ruidoso needs to clean it's act up, cut down on it's crime and live up to it's "so called" reputaion. A reputation that has been tarnished severly with the Mega Pay Out in setteling the lawsuits with Chief Gavin. The up coming court hearing with regards to the tainted and highly deadly water issue. Which is only going to lead to more lawsuits before it's over. How many police departments does it take. More than what we have apparently, to keep the peace in Ruidoso New Mexico.

Obviously there was no shooting in Qtrs parking lot about 2:30 pm on Friday because the FOWLERS said it wasn't so-just a "fight". Everyone who heard the shots and saw all the law enforcement and the roped off parking lot must be delusional=and, of course, nothing under breaking news in either of our stellar, on the spot, newspapers. Guess a shooting in the main street in Ruidoso, in view of tourists and shoppers, doesn't warrant any press? So much for public safety-shop at your own risk.

One of the parties involved that I know of is a resident of the Downs. Ruidoso and Ruidoso Downs are connected by the hip. The Downs doesnt have as many businesses that is why many of the Downs residents work and shop in Ruidoso. Doesn't matter where it happens.

I was nearby the shooting and walked over to get details. It is amazing that out newspapers are so hellbent on not reporting the news in this town. Non reporting of newsworthy events and stories amounts to a violation of the public trust. And these clowns actually lay claim to journalism awards? What a sham.

Sorry to hit a nerve. You must be a shamed resident of Ruidoso. When something happens here in "The Downs" the residents of The Next Little Aspen (Ruidoso) just trash us. But let something happen in Blue Blood, Ruidoso and "we are connected to the hip and it doesn't matter where it happens. Oh, OK, when it happens to Ruidoso it's nothing and it's still "The Downs" fault. You are too funny. Don't drink the water. I am sure we aren't joined at the hip with regards to tainted water. Clean up your crime Ruidoso, we here in "The Downs" are getting a little embarrased to admit your our neighbor. I guess $68,000 dollars for the Ruidoso Police Dept payroll over time for the Biker Weekend wasn't enough.

I witnessed a violent car crash that same night. Not in the news either, not suprising since they were old, Ruidoso DRUNKS.

Shop, drive, drink water at your own risk. It`s the wild, wild west meets Juatez meets Three Mile Island.

Extra, Extra read all about it!!! Locals have gunfight at local watering hole!! Ray and Stoddard still claim aliens influenced the council's decisions!! Public demands that Quarter's issuses only BB guns for future gunfights, fears mount that real bullets might find their way into the water supply.(not to mention the city council's collective butts).

Kudos to the pd for not mounting a full scale attack on two drunk punks.
