Indicted on criminal charges of interfering in a sex abuse case involving Deputy Darryl Burt. Real Crimes From Real Crimes: “Sheriff Gallagher admitted to having destroyed evidence in the case against Deputy Burt” Real Crimes: http://www.realcrimes.com/Corruption_Overview.htm  Orlando Sentinel 1992/11/26.  Grand Jury Indicts Sheriff, recommends his ouster https://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/os-xpm-1992-11-26-9211261355-story.html Excerpt:  A grand jury has recommended a sheriff's removal because of alleged corruption and indicted him on criminal charges of interfering in a sex abuse case. The grand jury said an investigation of Bernalillo County Sheriff Ray Gallagher found evidence of gross incompetence and corruption. The grand jury also indicted Gallagher on two counts of tampering with evidence and three counts of bribing or threatening a witness. An investigation was initiated nine months ago, after former Deputy Darryl Burt was charged with sexually abusing a man during a traffic stop. The indictment says Gallagher tried to help Burt avoid arrest by destroying two pieces of evidence and by intimidating three potential witnesses. https://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/os-xpm-1992-11-26-9211261355-story.html AP News [also seen in Darryl Burt] 1992/11/26  Ex-Deputy Acquitted in Case Related to Sheriff Indictment https://www.apnews.com/c5fe136da495516d72047a104692cc13 Excerpt:  A former Bernalillo County sheriff’s deputy has been acquitted of sexually assaulting a male motorist in a case that led to this week’s indictment of the county sheriff. Darryl Burt was found innocent Wednesday of kidnap, criminal sexual penetration, criminal sexual contact and of assault with intent to commit a violent felony. On Tuesday, Burt’s former boss, Sheriff Ray Gallagher, was indicted on two counts of tampering with evidence in Burt’s case, three counts of bribing or threatening a witness and a single count of aiding a felon. Gallagher denied the allegations. It was Burt’s second trial; the first ended in a jury deadlock. Gallagher had invoked Fifth Amendment guarantees against self-incrimination and refused to testify in Burt’s retrial. However, his testimony from Burt’s first trial was read into the record. In that testimony, Gallagher admitted throwing away two potential pieces of evidence: a tissue reportedly wrapped around the alleged victim’s car keys and a letter that reportedly referred to a potential witness. The alleged victim, a Mexican national, also didn’t appear at the retrial. Assistant District Attorney Paul Spiers had said the man, who was in Mexico, was afraid, ″and he has been frustrated with the on-again, off-again nature of the trial.″ Prosecutors had contended that Burt pulled over the alleged victim on the pretext of a traffic stop, searched his car, walked him to the patrol car, fondled and performed a sex act on him, and then pulled a gun. Burt said he only searched the man, because he suspected the man was concealing drugs. https://www.apnews.com/c5fe136da495516d72047a104692cc13 AP News-1992/11/26 extracted from internet 2019/05/07 Gallant, Eric      Espanola.  Espanola PD.  Sergeant.  2018/03 two complaints lodged.  2018/05 city conducts investigation into Esparza and Gallant.  See also Greg Esparza Rio Grande Sun 2018/05/24   City keeps cop investigation secret.

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 Green, Patrick     Deming.  In connection with David Eckert  and Timothy Young case. http://www.policestateusa.com/2014/timothy-young/ http://caselaw.findlaw.com/us-10th-circuit/1748339.html Griego, Jason     Cuba.

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: 2019/07/09 Gallagher Patrick added to list. 2019/06/24 Gallant Eric Rio Grande Sun-2018/03/29 article added. 019/06/10 Golson Lou added to list;  2019/05/07: Gallagher Ray articles added AP News-1992/11/26 and Orlando Sentinel-1992/11/26; 2019/05/05 Gallant Eric name added w/article Rio Grande Sun -2018/05/24, Gallegos Jason name added w/ article from Rio Grande Sun-2018/03/01; 2019/04/29 edited/cleaned up the page from a recent transfer; going over information to add or consolidate, , this will be ongoing.
