(DOM) Domestic Violence (wife Katherine) Real Crimes Excerpt from Real Crimes: Katherine Teupell was awarded a $235,000 settlement for claims against the Bernalillo County Sheriff's Department and the Albuquerque Police Department for their use of a “We don’t do blue” policy in dealing with an officer accused of beating his wife. Teupell alleged police extended “professional courtesy” to her husband, Scott Finley, a member of the Sheriff Department’s elite Crime Suppression Unit. Teupell testified she fled from her home with her children, 6 and 2, still in pajamas, on the night of Oct. 18, 1993, after Finley beat her. Teupell said that when she threatened to call police, Finley responded, “Go ahead and call. How can you break the law when you are the law?"  Although the APD officer who responded to the call confiscated Finley's police revolver, other officers who took over at the scene returned it.

It was his second officer- involved shooting, and the second time he came back with no video…. Officers Michael Oates and Matthew Fisher were involved in the shooting along San Mateo Boulevard this month, and Fisher’s lapel video is the only one available from the incident APD said it can’t answer whether Oates will be disciplined for the 2015 shooting because of a personnel issue and the department has to wait until the criminal investigation is complete before the administrative one can begin. The administrative investigation must be completed before Chief Gorden Eden can decide whether to discipline Oates. The city’s policy requires officers to turn their cameras on when they interact with the public. If they don’t, it’s up to the chief to decide what disciplinary action will be taken.  Eden is in Washington, D.C., for a conference, and unavailable for comment.
