ALBUQUERQUE, NEW MEXICO (INTELLIHUB) — Jason Boyd, a homeless man who was allegedly camping illegally in the foothills of New Mexico, was shot dead by police after a 3-hour standoff recently.  Video footage of the standoff recently surfaced which contradicted the claims from the police that the man attacked them.

Earlier this week over 1000 people marched around the Albuquerque police headquarters to protest the death of Jason Boyd, and the number of other police killings that have taken place in the state.

In the past 4-years Albuquerque Police have shot and killed 23 people. That’s the highest per capita rate out of any police department in the nation. In fact, it’s four times the national average, according to a new report.

The following is footage of the altercation that resulted in the death of Jason Boyd:

    Murder is the same…no matter who pulls the trigger.
    This was murder.

  • Laurice Tatum

    I’m a former Police Office, a former elected servant, I have over 28 year’s Investigative experience in legal and counter-terrorism arenas. I have an AAS, Police Science, BS, and Administration of Justice MS, Criminal Justice and MPA of International Affairs and countless hours of continuing education. I have also held the title CFE Certified Fraud Examiner. Now with that stated I believe you as a reasonable reader would agree that I
    have a good understanding of the mentality of a Police Officer.

    What’s happening in Albuquerque is truly disconcerting. It further reflects the disturbed minds of people who shouldn’t be in the position of Police Officer. The shoot first personality that manifest itself in unofficial policy and the too willing mentality to oblige a suicide by cop are shining examples of what is wrong with Law Enforcement these days. In the real world these personality treats should have no standing in an Officers lexicon. The brain surgeons in Human Resources and Administration have failed the
    citizenry. They’ve failed miserably the people of New Mexico by allowing such
    an infestation of that Department.

    The Albuquerque POLICE DEPARTMENT PARTICULARLY THOSE IN
    CHARGE OF HIRING AND TRAINING ARE A SAD, SORRY AND DISCUSSING COMMENTARY TO THE PEOPLE OF NEW MEXICO. WHAT KIND OF PEOPLE ARE THESE THAT HAVE NO RESPECT FOR HUMAN LIFE. What kind of people are
    these that allow such to happen on their watch. It’s clear they don’t understand the quality of love, mercy, fairness, the concept of three dimensional thinking much less the “land of enchantment?” WHAT KIND OF PEOPLE ARE THESE ROCKET SCIENTIST HIRING? HOW AND BY WHOM ARE THESE PEOPLE BEING TRAINED?

    I submit for your consideration the following question. What kind of people are law enforcement agencies hiring these days? Better yet what kind of training are recruits receiving? More and more we read and hear news of some atrocity committed by a Police Officer, I.G. the cannibal Cop of NYC. How and why are people like this being hired? Think about it!

    Over the last several years the Albuquerque Police Department has had one of the “highest confrontation and kill” rates of any other similarly sized Departments. Its per capita standing is way out of line with the national average. This naturally leads any reasonable and prudent observer to conclude they’re doing something wrong. Nor does it take a genius to see that what’s wrong is based in the erosion of Constitutional Rights. Now ask yourself why this? These are sick – disgusting trends that should not be happening much less ever occurring. People of Albuquerque bring your department
    under control. Start firing: renegades Offices, sorry training Officers, sorry
    administrators, I.G Chief, Deputy Chiefs, Captains, Lieutenant and Sergeants.
    Demand they error on the side of reasonable and prudent action, Demand they
    start using their God given brains and think three dimensionally and using insight
    and foresight. Make this a political matter with the elected people you put in Office.

    Remember this formula:
    BAD HIRING (INFERIOR CANDIDATES) + BAD TRAINING (SUBSTANDARD NON-
    CONSTITUTIONAL BASED) = CONSTITUTIONAL VIOLATION = (PUNITIVE AND COMPENSATORY CIVIL AND CRIMINAL LIABILITIES) = [HIGHER TAX AND FINANCIAL STRESS]. Until the day taxpayers get feed up with having their pocket books hit with having to pay damages for civil rights violations in the form of higher tax. “WITHOUT A DOUBT” this is a result of hiring people who are unsuitable to hold a position of Police Officer. Promoting incompetence into higher echelons and turning a blind eye will only result in the continuation of such problems? If the right and honorable people of the your State would get as fired up about this end results as you do “Obama Care” you would be much better off. “

    I’d like to conclude leaving the reader with this request. Take more pride in your State encourages and demand your Governor, State Legislature, Counties Commissions; all the hiring authorizes to start using psychological testing to determine sociopathic and psychopathic tendencies of current Officers and recruits.
