Greetings Albuquerque Police Department, we are Anonymous.
The unjustifiable murder of James Boyd by officers Keith Sandy and Dominique Perez has created quite a rift between your local citizens and you. Not long after the death of James Boyd, a protester by the name of Alfred Redwine took matters into his own hands to speak his mind about the crime committed by the two APD officers and was shot and killed addressing the illegality of the murder before his. Upon investigation of the Albuquerque police department we discovered a very definitive history of bloodthirsty behavior that not just Redwine and Boyd fatally learned. Such excessive force has brought The U.S. Department of Justice to launch a civil investigation into use of force by the city of Albuquerque, N.M., Police Department. Allegations in their press release include “use of excessive force, including use of unreasonable deadly force, in their encounters with civilians.” Of 24 police shootings since 2010, one involved the death of a 22-year-old man holding a plastic spoon while walking away from an officer. Another citizen, who was unarmed, but alive after the receiving his first APD bullet was finished off by another officer.
Such bloodlust clearly contradicts the writing on your website in regards to providing a safe and security community for your citizens, who have announced to you similar observations. We align ourselves with the people of Albuquerque and stand with them in speaking out against the APD and its reactionary use of excessive force against them, and we will be releasing information on both of the officers involved in these murders so that they will understand the consequences of eagerly killing their own kind. The six hundred fifty seven hours needed to become an APD officer is clearly not enough to prevent killing innocent people, nor will we allow it to go on.
