The Daily Word in APD, DOJ and justice

The Daily Word

The United States Department of Justice has “reasonable cause to believe that APD engages in a pattern or practice of use of excessive force, including deadly force, in violation of the Fourth Amendment and Section 14141."

Here, in summary, are the findings of the United States Department of Justice:

Albuquerque police officers shot and killed civilians who did not pose an imminent threat of serious bodily harm or death to the officers or others.

Albuquerque police officers used deadly force on individuals who posed no threat to anyone but themselves.

Albuquerque police officers’ own recklessness sometimes led to their use of deadly force.

Albuquerque police officers used force against individuals who were passively resisting and posed a minimal threat.

Albuquerque police officers used excessive force against individuals with mental illness, against individuals with impaired faculties, and against individuals who require medical treatment.

Supervisory reviews do not address excessive use of force.

Force incidents are not properly documented.

Shooting investigations are inadequate.

Internal review mechanisms are not implemented.

The Department’s training deficiencies contribute to the pattern or practice of unreasonable use of force.

The Department’s deficient policies contribute to the pattern or practice of unreasonable use of force.

Under-use of the crisis intervention team contributes to the pattern or practice of unconstitutional force.

The Department’s ineffective use of its tactical deployments contributes to the use of excessive force.

The Department’s aggressive organizational culture contributes to excessive force incidents.

The Department’s limited external oversight contributes to the pattern or practice of unconstitutional uses of force.

Inadequate community policing contributes to the department’s pattern or practice of unconstitutional force.
