The local law enforcement is corrupt. Period. Lawsuits show only a crack at what's been occurring. If you had a FBI investigation or oversight more then half of ocdc, local law would be shitting bricks. Not to mention officers who use narcotics or detention people who fall in love with gang affiliated people. It's a free for all in otero county. You get what you pay for. You hire low end people pay jack crap you get all the bad apples or people who don't give a damn I don't blame them. It's the county's old boy attitude and anti worker attitude that has it a stalled shit storm.

It's been years and i have looked at all the nasty blog's over and over again for these dreadful years of grievement my and my family have gone through. To you people that had nothin better to do then to BASH my BROTHER how dare you! You had and have no clue what it is you spoke about all that kidnapping and endangerment to a child was his own son! That he never laid a finger on and to this day i speak to her and his kids. His spouse and him got into it he was never guilty of any of these things my brother took his life because he was tired and left as if he could do nothing right. We are all human and make mistakes and who are you to JUDGE! I pray God has mercy on those who think they have the authority, right and even the nerve to point fingers or lash out on a dead soul. My brother was my best friend Great father, brother, and son and yes he made poor decisions and bad mistakes but he was human. May God bless each and every one of you and your familys. I pray that in a time of death in your life that you never feel the pain i felt reading these judgments and statements made on a man you know nothing about!
I just foud out about Lathans death all these years later and I see RECENT hateful posts, people shouldnt be so quick to judge. And to talk about his parents...he had good working parents, they lived in a nice neghborood when they lived in San Antonio, so please dont blame them..or him. if his brother reads this, I would like toget in touch with you somehow.

So typical Alamogordo. Friendliest Place on Earth, yeah right! Filled with good Christian hypocrites who love to see other fall from "grace". Makes them feel so much better about themselves.
An investigation into the way this jail is run is long overdue. Maybe some good will come of this tragedy (and yes all SUICIDES if that's really was what this was is tragic).
Remember people criminals have loved ones too. People make wrong choices and some do really bad things but they are still humans and deserve better than the vile comments posted here.
Yeah they do have loved ones to beat but no anymore.

Any crime committed with a gun or any weapon should automatically qualify the offender to at least life in prison. Or better yet death.

Only problem with that is the Grey areas of law where one can defend self in ones home from a intruder out to do harm. If the victim defends self then the suspects attorney could push for conviction of the home owner to be charged and tried for his actions of self defense Using a firearm.
I was talking about someone intentionally committing a crime not an individual defending his or her home which should not even be considered a crime.

All criminals are really model citizens to everyone except their victims, lets not blame the criminals for what they do it is not their fault maybe they had a bad childhood, the poor things, I had a brother who was killed by an armed robber, that was also a nut job like your punk ass friend rest in peace shit rot in hell.

This young man ended on the wrong side of the track. For all you senseless cold-hearted responders, nobody wins in this situation. Have you ever wondered/considered how he ended up this way or do you care, after all he is son, father, and friend? What about this society?
This society, what? When are we going to stop blaming society or something else and start putting the blame where it belongs, on the individuals that commit the acts, people like you with your liberal bleeding heart attitude are the reason our society as you put it allow this human feces to walk around in public, when will we stop coddling assholes and start putting them where they belong.

You should hang yourself as well. Not only does society not need criminals. It equally does not need lunatics like you.

The state joining in with violence solves a lot. Teaches everyone a lesson that supposedly sane and normal people can justify revenge killing.
