Albuquerque’s police is so notorious for shooting people that the Department of Justice recently ripped the department for its tactics.
Not that this stopped the APD. A woman named Mary Hawkes was just killed by an Albuquerque police officer. Who was this officer? Why, an officer specifically called out by the DOJ report for killing before and then telling conflicting stories about the event.
I lived in Albuquerque for 5 years. If you went downtown on a Friday or Saturday night, the place would be flooded with cops on horses swinging batons. I saw blood literally flowing in the streets on multiple occasions after white police officers beat the living hell out of young brown people. It was crazy.
And look, Albuquerque is a hard town. Breaking Bad is what Burquenos call a “documentary.” But that said, the APD
legal thugs police only make these problems worse through their systematic shoot first policy.
