First winner to be screened June 1
By Devin D. O’Leary [ Wed May 2 2012 11:10 AM ]
Everybody loves an election. And in this one, everybody wins!
Alibi is asking its readers to help the City of Albuquerque bring back the popular Civic Cinema film series in grand fashion. There will be three free public movie screenings this summer on Downtown's Civic Plaza. The city is asking you to pitch in and vote for your favorite films. The number one choice will be shown at the first public screening on June 1. After that, the winning film is removed, and voting starts all over again. Didn't get to see the movie you wanted? Vote some more. Encourage your friends to chime in as well.
Get out the vote, and let's watch some movies this summmer, Albuquerque!

Know Your Rights?
Arm yourself with truth, justice and the American way
By Carolyn Carlson
One warm late May evening, DC and some friends headed Downtown to hit a few bars and celebrate a friend’s college graduation. He never expected to end up in jail, accused of disorderly conduct. DC is not a stereotypical gangster dude who quibbles with cops just for fun. He is a white, college-educated, 26-year-old Republican who considers himself conservative and pro-law and order. He said he was arrested for what amounts to opening a rear passenger car door and questioning a police officer during a lengthy seat belt violation traffic stop.

To Salvage Democracy

Bill Moyers’ last ever episode of “Journal” ran on PBS a few weeks back. I missed it but heard so many comments that I found it online and spent an hour and a half watching it.
