June 19, 2014 – Albuquerque police killed 26 people in 4 years, now the Justice Department is getting involved over excessive force accusations. Despite $30M in judgements against the city, and an officer-involved shooting rate twice that of Chicago, eight times that of NY, not a single Albuquerque police officer has been charged or convicted of using excessive force in the last 30 years. These cases may potentially lead to a Department of Justice program which will set up shop within the department to monitor the Albuquerque police department’s alleged use of excessive force.
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
