Free the Data—Crack open the databases, New Mexico. Taxpayers want a look. Under Rep. Joseph Cervantes' (D-Las Cruces) bill, the state would allow people to peruse electronic collections of data "maintained by or on behalf of a public body."

Council Watch

Copwatch’s Appeal

Several members from the city's Copwatch attended the Wednesday, Feb. 23 City Council meeting to make an appeal about Albuquerque Police Department policies. Adriann Barboa, director of Young Women United, outlined the group’s requests, which include: an end to race- and class-based profiling; no more shoot-to-kill; mandatory crisis intervention training for all officers; a youth voice on the city’s Police Oversight Commission; and more authority for the commission so it can fire and discipline officers.

Having It Both Ways

We go before the world and prosecute a peremptory war on terrorism, daring our neighbors to find fault with our actions in Iraq and Afghanistan. And yet we stand idly by while the Khalifa in Bahrain, our political friend, terrorizes its people with bullets supplied by our own arsenals. It is terrorism when a government beats and shoots its own people, scatters them in bloody shrieking masses through the city streets with volleys of gunfire. They have merely asserted what all free people assume as a right—the right to free assembly. How does this terrorism not incite our fury?
