Murphy Articles Hobbs News 2017/10/11 Hobbs News Ex Officers file lawsuit https://www.hobbsnews.com/2017/10/11/ex-officers-file-lawsuit-hpd/ Excerpt: A federal lawsuit filed last week by three former Hobbs Police Department officers alleges racial discrimination and retaliation within the agency and that they were encouraged to target people of color to make quotas. The 21-page lawsuit, filed Oct. 5 in Albuquerque, on behalf of African-American officers Brandon Ellis and Vasshawn Robinson, as well as Caucasian officer Jeremy Artis, seeks actual and special damages, along with punitive damages against a number of defendants from the City of Hobbs and Hobbs Police Department based on violations of the New Mexico Whistle Blower Protection Act, Equal Protection Clause and First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. “During the time HPD employed the plaintiffs, each plaintiff police officer witnessed and endured racial discrimination and attempted to report it,” the lawsuit states. “Each plaintiff endured subsequent retaliatory actions for reporting racial discrimination and for associating with one another.” It further alleges those actions led the officers to seek employment elsewhere, but individuals with Hobbs police “ensured” they wouldn’t be hired. All three plaintiffs are currently employed with the Lea County Sheriff’s Office where they earn $6 less an hour, according to Albuquerque civil rights attorney Shannon    Atencio, Cory   Espanola.

Articles Real Crimes http://kaitarquette.arquettes.com/corruption%20overview.htm http://www.realcrimes.com/Corruption_Overview.htm Excerpt from Real Crimes.  Also seen on Kait Arquette:  9/81: APD undercover officers, John Hearn and Greg Avila, were working a suspected vehicle theft ring when they got into a shootout with one of the suspects, Frank Minott.  Minott testified that he shot at Officer Avila in self-defense after Avila fired at him.  Officer Avila’s blood alcohol level was three times higher than the legal requirement for intoxication.  A female witness testified that Avila tried to force his way into her bedroom, tried to grope another girl present, and tried to stab a cat with a pitchfork, saying he “was hungry.”  Minott testified that he told Avila to stop hurting the women and Avila said, “What are you going to do about it?”, Minott pushed Avila away, and Avila pulled a knife.  Then Hearn got involved, and Minott said he feared that Hearn would hold him down while Avila cut him, so he ran to the house and Avila fired a gun at him.  Minott got to a gun and fired back at Avila, wounding him twice. Minott was found guilty of assault with intent to commit a violent felony. Chief Whitey Hansen told the press (in regard to the actions of the two officers), “When you’re in Rome, you do as the Romans do.” He said there are no guidelines or rules for undercover officers,  http://kaitarquette.arquettes.com/corruption%20overview.htm http://www.realcrimes.com/Corruption_Overview.htm Newspapers - Santa Fe New Mexican Excerpt from Newspapers - Santa Fe New Mexican, 03/26/1981: An " Albuquerque undercover policeman was shot Wednesday evening in the Torrance County community of Mclntosh and police have launched an extensive manhunt for one man.
