APD Headquarters 3/30/14

The sirens have finally died in downtown Albuquerque. Choppers are still making noise in the sky above the city from Nob Hill west to the Downtown neighborhood where today hundreds of protesters marched in protest against the most recent APD shooting. Unfortunately, James Boyd (a homeless man who was camped out in the foothills of the Sandias) is not the most recent kill by APD, simply the most high profile.

Riot gear, screaming fast police cruisers and a generally intimidating tone were the order of the day for residents of Albuquerque, a city which has become internationally famous for the brutality of its police department. Consensus is that the Duke City has one of the most dangerous, out of control police departments in the nation. The FBI has opened a criminal investigation into James Boyd's death.
