May 16, 2014 – The Albuquerque Police Department is PROMOTING an officer found guilty of excessive use of force to a new position meant to address allegations that the department frequently demonstrates excessive use of force. After a video of a homeless man being shot and killed by officers in March sparked protests, the Department of Justice investigated the city’s police and found systemic violations and improper behavior. To make reforms, the APD created the position of Major and appointed Timothy Gonterman, it announced Thursday. A judge ruled the city had to pay $300,000 to a homeless man in 2006 after finding Eden had used excessive force with his stun gun.

Since you’re here…
…We have a small favor to ask. Fewer and fewer people are seeing Anti-Media articles as social media sites crack down on us, and advertising revenues across the board are quickly declining. However, unlike many news organizations, we haven’t put up a paywall because we value open and accessible journalism over profit — but at this point, we’re barely even breaking even. Hopefully, you can see why we need to ask for your help. Anti-Media’s independent journalism and analysis takes substantial time, resources, and effort to produce, but we do it because we believe in our message and hope you do, too.
If everyone who reads our reporting and finds value in it helps fund it, our future can be much more secure. For as little as $1 and a minute of your time, you can support Anti-Media. Thank you. Click here to support us
