Families to protest police killings at 4 p.m.

Friends and family members of people who’ve been shot by the Albuquerque Police Department will demonstrate today on Civic Plaza from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. They will demand that Mayor Richard Berry and Police Chief Ray Schultz take action to stop the killings, according to a news release.

At a Monday, June 6 City Council meeting, scores of folks pleaded with councilors to learn from the deaths and change APD’s policies.

Chief Schultz issued an order in late May that requires officers to carry Tasers. Answer N.M., an activist group, says the order is an insult. “Tasers, like police guns, are violent weapons of lethal force. Chief Schultz has not addressed the underlying issues of APD's practice of excessive force, racism and a reign of terror ... .”

2011 has seen four officer-caused deaths. Another 14 people were shot in 2010, and nine died.
