I heard that she was trying to take a mouth full of pills and he pulled them away from her. Isn't that waht he is supposed to do, protect ppl. This is total garbage in eyes. Bosque frams are nothing more than cops that like to give tickets. leave good people alone already. Hey by the way, i got a ticket for just over 3 miles over the speed limit. how accurate is that?
bosque farms cops are just like the nazies

Wow the sheriff looked pretty much like a dumb dumb on tv last night. maybe he needs a real PIO that can talk and not stutter. all i can say is that mistakes already have been made during his 2 months in office. go back to being a judge cuz at least you could still wear you apd uniform under your robes. ppl have seen your apd unit parked behind the so called courthouse. i voted for you and so far i'm not impressed. i think mcdonalds is hiring......jerkhard

i am sorry to admit but seems like all the great ideas he had for cleaning up the department went out the window. could be maybe the income is better not seeing a lot of what is going on or doing anything about it

labate helped me out when i needed help. an earlier post says that his gf was just trying to take pills and there was a "domestic violence" call but she was trying to overdose on pills. i don't see that as DV I see this as an officer holding to his oath to protect & serve. i'm not really impressed with Burkhard so far. i live in el cerro and my house was broken into not too long ago and it took a deputy 30 mins or so to get to my house. now i'm not putting them down for that but burkhard when are you going to hire more people rather than putting them on leave? can you really afford less protection on the street. i know that the crime levels are increaseing becuz all the criminals think that vcso are barney fifes i say put labate back on the street. u can't afford to punk out like rivera did, but so far you have. i won't be voting for u again

I'm a single mom with 3 kids who left her husband after him beating me once to manny times. Sheriff if you keep trying to get rid of your staff what kind of dept will you have. I neverr see any of your cars or people out atnight. I always see them at the giant drinking cofee instead of doing their work. i have a restraining order against my husband and he iw always trying something but your staff does nothing to help or protect me. looks like the next 4 yrs are going to be just like the Rene Riera years. the change has done nothing to help me. i'm scared now.

I think that these po pos get awayy with too much. they act like got it all. damn, i got a ticket from one of these boys that like to play cop and the one ( won't mention who) was a total jerk. i thought bosque farms was in the US not nazi germany i guess they nothing better to do cuz nothing happens in BF. but don't they patrol at denny's in the early morning hours and for that matter so do isleta officers. geez someone could by dyin while their stuffing thier faces at denny's. i wonder if their higher ups know thats what they do. NO LONGER BOSQUE FARMS BUT NOW KNOWN AS NAZI FARMS THIS AINGT THE LAND OF ENCHANEMENT BUT ITS THE LAND OF ENTRAPMENT.

Maybe you should.of done background.checks on both Labate and his wife and you would have been suprised. They got together as a result of an affair. He was the worst chief the department ever had. He put his previous wife in handcuffs in an argument. Wow way to go....glad he is your problem not ours. There are many many other things this couple did in our town just dig a little.
Seems like there are people in this world that are STILL hanging on to the past. Has anyone ever heard of a felon working in a police department. Yup, it happened. This person was a felon in another state and still got a job in a police department. The chief let her stay. The old supervisor was having an affair with one of the cops and a member of the fire department. Her husband never knew. There was another employee there that had a big bill with the fire department for lots of rides to the hospital and never paid. Seems like this former employee never paid her bills. The old supervisor used to steal money after people paid their fines. Yup, I think if you dig around you will find that those people are no longer in town. And the old chief states that he had quite a bit of police training but could never produce proof. Dig into that. That town is a dump and the people that live in it are scum. Don't throw rocks at glass houses folks!!

If her would have worked within the color of the law it wouldnt have been so bad but he didnt and totally got scammed and lost all respect from a lot of us in the way he handled it. I am over it no worries. Cops should have integrity, honesty and accountability and this officer had none of the three.Dont worry I will not post here ever again I do have a life. Later
u are still a loser

You right about one thing you are a loser. JW, glad you have moved on to scamming other people. Oh ya, I forgot you and DW are not Walmart. You will always be a criminal. Did you ever get that pardon you were fishing for? I think you don't have a life because you searched for LaBate. Hmmm, I guess you have nothing better to do when you are an unemployed felon. You are also right about karma...did you feel the bite yet? Peace out cow!!!
