Mayor Keller calls reported threat to send federal forces to Albuquerque a political stunt

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.- Albuquerque Mayor Tim Keller had sharp criticism following national news reports that suggest the Trump administration is planning to send federal forces to Albuquerque.

“There’s no place for Trump’s secret police in our city. If this was more than a stunt, these politicians would support constitutional crime fighting efforts that work for our community, not turning Albuquerque into a federal police state. We will not sell out our own community, or our own police department, for this obvious political agenda; as they try to incite violence by targeting our city and our residents,” Keller said.

Mike Geier, chief of Albuquerque Police Department, appeared wary of the reason federal forces would be sent to Albuquerque.

“I truly hope this is a not just a cheap political stunt that will only make our city less safe. We coordinate with our federal law enforcement partners every day. What is being described is not real crime fighting; it’s politics standing in the way of police work," Geier said.

1. A deadly stunt.

Ignore Trump's paramilitary at your peril. Every state needs a real action plan.

3. If one has been watching for

 

Police Department Abuse of its Citizens,Albuquerque is one of the Worse. Earlier this year,they were killing one person a day or more.

Sorry to say,am aware of a couple Bullies with Badges who were fired for molesting and beating people during Traffic Stops. Were did they land,Albuquerque.

There are real Social and Economic issues in this City that the local PD has been rubbing raw for years.
