Grant, and while it may be disturbing to see him[self] being repeatedly shot, Det. Grant is hopeful that the City will release the complete videos to the public to help prevent future tragedies from occurring to other law enforcement officers and to the public. For officer safety, Det. Grant requests that any released videos blur the faces, images and identities of any undercover officers to ensure their safety.”Brachle shot Grant eight times at point-blank range with .45-caliber, hollow-point rounds during the undercover drug bust on Jan. 9, 2015 near Central and Tramway. Grant lost 80 percent of his blood, suffered temporary blindness and suffered damage to nearly every internal organ as a result of the shooting. He has undergone multiple surgeries to repair the damage and will most likely undergo many more. Grant has sued the city and Brachle in federal court for civil right violations related to the shooting. The lawsuit and subsequent court filings allege that Brachle was a loose cannon who violated numerous police department policies and procedures that morning. The complaint also alleges that, while he didn’t attend an operational briefing on the bust that morning, Brachle was on his police radio and learned the details of the operation while he was en route to the scene that day. 2016/03/16--http://www.freeabq.com/2016/03/16/jacob-grant-release-video/ Albuquerque Journal (2017/12/05) 2017/12/05--https://www.abqjournal.com/1102366/ag-no-charges-in-cop-on-cop-shooting.html Excerpt from ABQ Jrnl 2017/12/05-by Kay Barnitz: An Albuquerque police lieutenant who repeatedly shot a fellow officer during a January 2015 undercover drug bust will not be criminally charged, the state Attorney General’s Office announced Monday.  (2016/01/14) 2016/01/14--https://www.abqjournal.com/706353/detective-recalls-horror-of-being-shot-by-boss-in- drug-sting.html KOAT (2016/04/01) 2016/04/01--http://www.koat.com/article/cop-who-shot-fellow-officer-i-didn-t-know-it-was- you/5070698 Graves Ryan, -,-,-,-,- Green Patrick,     Deming, Deming PD/Deputy, Force/Probe, Victim Timothy Young; David Eckert, Caselaw; Police State USA-2014; http://www.policestateusa.com/2014/timothy-young/ http://caselaw.findlaw.com/us-10th-circuit/1748339.html Griego Jason,     Cuba.  INFO- Hawaii arrest in which Maui officials and prison were below par.

APD.  Al Jazeera http--//www--aljazeera dot com/indepth/features/2015/08/albuquerque-pd-case-study-police-brutality- 150828061722574.html Excerpt al jazeera: This culture has changed very little since Costales' days in the department, according to former officer Tom Grover. "It was a running joke at the department: 'Did they have a gun, wink wink, nod nod?'" Grover says. "There wasn't any concealing or diminishing of [the] APD's propensity for violence. It was there, it was acknowledged, it was accepted."Grover joined the department in 2004 and left in 2011 after a botched APD investigation into the death of his close friend Mary Han, a well-known civil rights lawyer and outspoken critic of the APD."I'd taken tenfolds of carbon-monoxide suicides or attempts at suicide. And it's not this pristine scene that you see in the movies," says Grover of the way Han's body was found. "People look sunburnt. They sweat because of the heat from the exhaust. They expectorate, there's snot everywhere. There's a lot of scratching. It's a very violent death. Theres nothing pleasant or sublime about it. Its an ugly, ugly scene … Mary, however, is just sort of there like, 'Hey, wake up.'"What followed was a series of unusual events, as numerous high-ranking APD officials and city civilians arrived on the scene, something Grover had never seen before. According to a police report filed by Grover (and later lost by the APD), the lieutenant said that while on the scene he overheard detectives commenting that Han was a staged murder, that it was a homicide, that Han was "clearly taken out".Later that evening, Grover got a call from a lieutenant on the graveyard shift saying the APD never made the call-out to investigate Han's death as a homicide."It just stinks to high heaven," says Grover, speaking of the inconsistencies in Han's toxicology screen, her body position and her apparent carbon-monoxide suicide. "Everything about that scene was consistent with a staged homicide." http--//www--aljazeera dot com/indepth/features/2015/08/albuquerque-pd-case-study-police-brutality- 150828061722574.html Updates: 2019/12/08 Grossete Moises added 2015 case Hernandez v.
