Sounds like you're talkin''bout Fresquez (wife works for the DA's office) who sleeps his whole shift away. Or Salas, who spends all his time with his wife at NMSU PD. Or Flores, who helped Vega do his dirty work in T or C (a shooting they covered up) and Carrizozo, or Gray, who sits and watches porn all day and steals whatever he can? You ARE right, you can't find a Mesilla officer when you need one. They don't even respond to Central Dispatch when called. It actually would be better to call DASO or State Police. Law enforcement in Mesilla is non-existent. Vega still spends alot of time at Town Hall visiting his favorite mayor. Comes into town in a Columbus government vehicle all the time with his driver Valenzuela.
Dont forget to add when they stop and pick up a few cold ones on the way. For those two who are defending Vale and Vega. You must know how wortheless they both were when they worked at J. Paul Taylor and how even more in Mesilla. I saw Valenzuela at a funeral in full uniform. What the ??
I can sit here and give yo good dirt on Vega, abusing state vehicle usage, waiting outside peoples houses, promoting females in exchange for ???.
Nothing is going to happen folks, no one is going to do anything, not DASO, not NMSP, not the city of Columbus, no one!

As a law enforcement officer this really burns me up. This guys contiues to betray his oath, and lacks all profesionalism. He needs to be fired and decertified from DPS in Santa Fe. He should not be allowed to perfrom any such duties or carry a gun. Guys like him and Joe Serna give all of us a bad name and a black eye we can not recover from.
Here here. Well said.

Do you all know the two sides to this story? I don't think so! I don't think anyone knows except Valenzuela and the ex-girlfriend. So before you sit here talking smack of all these people, look at all your faults/inperfectness and fix them before you judge anybody.
All anyone needs to know about it is that he sent a photo to her with his gun in his mouth. Do you actually need any more info to figure it out?

This flapjack is unstable and a liability with a badge and a gun. Get him some help, save his soul, stroke his hair if you feel like it but take that gun and the authority away from him and get a good honest man to replace him.

Sad, but true. Vega has literally gotten away with murder and so did his buddy Flores. If there is any justice, these two will pay before they die. I would love to be around to witness it. As for Valenzuela, everyone knows he covered for Vega when he was fired. I wonder how many other people Vega is going to totally F up and take down before he gets his. Our great mayor and trustees did the world a great disservice when they sided with him. IF they have consciences, I hope they get eaten alive.

So true. Honest law enforcement officers with integrity DO hate the worthless schmucks that disgrace the badge. Two prime examples in this article. Worthless to the profession.

It is amazing that this happened and it has yet to come out in the Deming Headlight! I think the community would like to know that the officer that is supposed to protect is a nutjob with a gun!

Go away vega. Nobody cares about your sorry opinion. It's easy to understand why any woman associated with either you or Valenzuela would be DISTURBBED.

it's time to clean up law enforcement in NM, and a good place to start is http://www.ratemycop.com/ . make Columbus (or Mesilla) an embarrassment to Santa Fe, and regardless of alliances, things will have to change. shine some light on these roaches. we can beat this to death on Topix but nobody outside of the area is going to know about it unless we take it to a wider forum.

and since nobody else mentioned it, I will... Valenzuela is just following his boss's example. remember the 2001 case of Angelo Vega's stalking Albina Chavez? the charge is listed as "ATT ASSAULT W/INTENT TO COMMIT VIOLENT FELONY" at http://www2.nmcourts.gov/caselookup/app... . it was dropped by the plaintiff, I never did find out why.

BECAUSE Vega threatened the witnesses. Speak with the past and present judges and people in the police dept. in Carrizozo. Any citizen who has been there for a while will tell you exactly what you want to know. Hell, talk with his ex-wife. How secure is the site you mentioned in your last post? Vega and others in Mesilla are known to retaliate against people who speak out against them. For your information, if you didn't already know, Valenzuela worked very closely with Vega when they worked for the juvenile detention facility in Las Cruces.

I was never interested enough to go all the way to Carrizozo to snoop around. If people are too scared to post the info here on Topix, why would they tell some unknown gringo anyway?

The ratemycop.com site was already shutdown once. A lot of cops have problems with being exposed for what they are. But the owner of the site seems to have the ganas to keep it going regardless of the complaints.

Anyway, I'm not sure the site is working properly, I added Columbus PD and it didn't show up yet, after the 24 hours it was supposed to take.

Vega has no power here. His bullying and threatening days are over. I'll assure you of that.

It only gets worse with Martinez as Governor. She'll have her Mafia armies in place to terrorize ALL the people of NM--she does it here in DAC.

Get some psychiatric help for your habitual lying and your paranoia. Loosening your tin foil hat might be a start. While you're with the shrink, get some help for your extreme jealousy of Ms. Martinez too. You've been putting it in print since May.

Don't tell me the "fine" people of Columbus have figured him out and put him in his place? By the way, who's driving "Miss Daisy" these days?
