I promise you, you have nothing on Florida. Thats all I am saying. If you worked any Bay area county or Miami-Ft Lauderdale PD, Sheriff's office, you would be happy to be back in ABQ. How many zombie cannibals have you guys had eating the flesh of random innocent strangers? How often are children thrown from bridges into their doom out there?
How many times a year do you have full family murder/suicides?? we were the Epicenter of the opium crisis for half a decade, and the primary source of the nations problems as well.
What you are focusing on is the filth of society's, which will obviously seem widespread and epidemic when you work with an agency who's function is to deal with those elements on a daily basis. It is being not sincere to peddle that as daily life for everyday citizens. That is called fear mongering.

Guess what, Arizona, Oklahoma, Texas, and Utah have those same sunrise and sunsets. Also if you spent that much time working for APD that's so bad, and you admit your own brother was stealing dope, and I assume YOU didn't turn him in, how can we trust anything you say? You also admit to being on the wrong side of the court. Winning a case is NOT the same as being innocent. It only means not enough evidence to convict, based on the standard of law required by the court. A cop being unable to show 100% proof of their statement is not the same as a lie. Next my bet is you got your butt kicked because you did not do what you were told, and started swinging instead. In short it sounds to me like you and your brother are part of the problem and should be locked up.
Finally this law she wants to pass sounds to me like she's just tired of having some dirt bag drug dealer (Your brother) pulls a gun on a cop and gets shot. The family of that dirt bag (You) can sue for wrongful death.
As far as I'm concerned if you run from, fight with, or otherwise attack or ignore the police when given a lawful order to stop you're fare game. They don't know you or why you're running. They have every right to assume you're dangerous and act accordingly.
Albuquerque attorney Randi McGinn called the legislation an attempt to score political points. She said police officers already have qualified immunity in federal court and damages are capped in state court. And if there is a judgment against an officer in state court, the municipalities, not police officers, would have to pay, she said.

What would your solution be to dealing with the lawsuits, to discourage the lawsuits by criminals who are pissed of they got caught or got themselves hurt by resisting arrest? I think that's what this is about and this is also about the whole State, not just one town.
If you know all this stuff, have you gone to the Feds? If you're working in forensics isn't it incumbent on you to do so, so you are not complicit? A federal prosecutor can deal with those things.
