(KRQE) - A New Mexico family is suing after they say a police officer who was supposed to perform a welfare check, instead allowed his dog to attack a man for no reason. The lawsuit, filed two weeks ago, names two officers, the chief, and the Clovis Police Department as the defendants. According to the lawsuit, in February, a woman called police saying her son was "suicidal." Three officers responded, including K-9 Officer Brent Aguilar and Sgt. Travis Loomis. The lawsuit states that when officers went to speak to him, the man told them he was okay but refused to let them in the apartment. The family's attorney said officers had their lapel cameras on, and that you can hear them planning to release the K-9 on the man even though they reassured him that he wasn't in any trouble and that they didn't want to hurt him. https://www.krqe.com/news/new-mexico/clovis-police-officer-involved-in-deadly-2018-shooting- named-in-new-lawsuit/2035475714   Police Center (this video seems gone as of 05/02/2019) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-DbcwFkDlL0   - You Tube Video clip/article from Police Center https://goo.gl/jR7Abo  Excerpt from Police Center: See You Tube video clip Clovis, NM - A Clovis police officer is facing an internal investigation for use of force, police said Wednesday in a news release.  While police did not release the officer’s name, Attorney Dan Lindsey claims Officer Brent Aguilar slammed his handcuffed client to the ground during a traffic stop on Aug. 3.  Lindsey has asked New Mexico State Police to start a criminal investigation against Aguilar.  Lindsey said Jorge Corona, 26, suffered a broken cheek and other injuries after being slammed face first into pavement by Aguilar.

By Christine Steele. 2018/08/07--http://www.scdailypress.com/site/2018/08/07/former-deputy-sentenced-to-10-years/ Excerpt:  Former Grant County Sheriff’s Deputy Michael Aguirre was sentenced to 10 years in prison Monday for a series of violent domestic assaults he committed last year. But the state agreed that his charges wouldn’t be classified as serious violent felonies, meaning he can earn up to 50 percent good time off his sentence — and could be released in as few as five years.  Aguirre, who served 20 years with the Grant County Sheriff’s Office, followed by a stint with the Western New Mexico University Police before his legal troubles began last year, was facing up to 26 and a half years in prison on 13 charges in four separate cases, according to a plea agreement presented Monday in District Court. Sentencing was to be at the discretion of the court, and could have been as little as probation or up to 26 and a half years, but the state agreed to a cap of 10 years.  Aguirre’s defense attorney, Daniel Dietzel, argued for a sentence of probation with inpatient treatment, and said his client was waiting on a bed at Men in Recovery or another long-term inpatient treatment program. He presented letters from Aguirre’s wife, parents, aunt and uncle, and the forensic evaluation and a report from Mesilla Valley Hospital.  “What the family wants — and that includes a lot of the victims,” Dietzel said, “is they want him to get help, and that is inpatient treatment.” 2018/08/0--http://www.scdailypress.com/site/2018/08/07/former-deputy-sentenced-to-10-years/ (2018/07/13) Former deputy gets probation in Las Cruces.  By Christine Steele. 2018/07/13--http://scdailypress.com/site/2018/07/13/former-deputy-gets-probation-in-las-cruces/ 2018/07/06  Aguirre charged with felony assault 2018/07/06--http://scdailypress.com/site/2018/07/06/aguirre-charged-with-felony-assault/ SC Sun (2017/10/20) State Police releases more information Aguirre shooting 2017/10/20--https://www.scsun-news.com/story/news/crime/2017/10/20/state-police-releases-more- information-aguirre-shooting/786307001/ (2017/05/23) Former police officer back custody numerous charges 2017/05/23--http://www.scsun-news.com/story/news/crime/2017/05/23/former-police-officer-back- custody-numerous-charges/102083588/  Excerpt from SCSUN-05/23/2017: Twenty counts of aggravated battery on a household member; three counts of child abuse; aggravated DWI; possession of a controlled substance; resisting, evading, obstruction of an officer; and aggravated stalking.

Key, said he had had no choice: "It goes without saying that when you have a videotape that clearly shows a police execution, it's just screaming for prosecution."If Sergeant Anders had not agreed to plead guilty, Mr. Key said, federal prosecutors, concerned about the possibility of acquittal by a state jury, were prepared to try him under a civil rights statute that could have sent him to prison for life. His guilty plea carried a sentence of up to seven years; the one year the judge gave him was the lightest possible term. 2006/03/17--http://www.nytimes.com/2006/03/17/us/an-officer-seen-as-a-hero-faces-a-year-behind- bars.html Police Mag (2008/10/09) Two Aryan brotherhood members convicted in plot to kill NM deputy 2008/10/09--http://www.policemag.com/channel/patrol/news/2008/10/09/two-aryan-brotherhood- members-convicted-in-plot-to-kill-n-m-deputy.aspx Other Links - Billy Anderson 2015/book--57 pcs cldcrft puzzle https://outskirtspress.com/billyanders  9d19-e871464c8ffa.html 2006/03/21--http://www.wnd.com/2006/03/35341/ 2006/03/04--ttp://www.koat.com/article/judge-sentences-former-deputy-to-one-year-behind-bars-for- man-s-killing/5022154 Armijo, Anthony     Espanola, Espanola PD, Officer, Hit Pedestrian, Found Not Guilty. former Rio Arriba County Sheriff’s Deputy.  (Rio Grande Sun article 02/2017) Signs of police brutality with Greg Esparza, seems cleared.  Spat with Cory Atencio-internal affairs investigation.  (See Greg Esparza, Cory Atencio) November 22, 2016 pedestrian hit incident on Paseo de Onate Watch for Antics   Possible suspicious private Investigation into Greg Esparza with Armijo present at incident Articles Rio Grande Sun November 22, 2016 incident on Paseo de Onate (2017/02/20) Woman hit by officer sues city, police department.  By Jennifer Garcia. 02/20/2017--http://www.riograndesun.com/news/woman-hit-by-officer-sues-city-police- department/article_794a7aae-f783-11e6-9caa-9f84a71bad92.html Incident involving Rosalia Martinez: Excerpt:   A woman injured after being hit by an Española Police officer’s vehicle while crossing the street, is suing the Española Police Department.  Attorney Kimberly Brusuelas, of the Fifth Street Law Offices in Albuquerque, sent a letter addressed to the Española Police Department Administration, dated Jan. 12, giving them notice of a tort claim and demanding evidence be preserved.   Paralegal Courtney Johnson of Fifth Street Law Offices said Brusuelas helped Rosalia Martinez file the initial notice and demand, but is not representing her.On Jan. 23, Santa Fe-based Attorney Peter Culbert sent a notice to Mayor Alice Lucero, informing her that Martinez was giving notice to the city that she was filing a tort claim, after the Nov. 22 incident on Paseo de Oñate, involving Officer Anthony Armijo…He said Armijo saw the couple, who was hesitating to cross the road, and he went left, to avoid striking them directly, as they crossed.

Armijo also faces new felony charges after being accused of selling a town-owned rifle and pocketing the cash.  Romero said Armijo is working to clear up the latest case. He said Armijo has not ruled out seeking the police chief’s position again if his case is resolved and the position is open. https://ourtaxdollarsatwork.wordpress.com/?s=ernest+armijo New York Daily News (2012/09/27) With Vaughn, New Mexico, police chief out over his past conviction, only cop with CLEAN record is the drug-sniffing DOG!. By Victoria Cavaliere http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/top-dog-new-mexico-town-officer-drug-sniffing-pooch- named-nikka-article-1.1169639 Excerpt:  Meantime, Chief Armijo hadn't been able to carry a firearm since pleading guilty in January to failing to pay thousands of dollars in child support in Texas, a felony in that state. "The law is very clear. You cannot be a convicted felon and be a police officer in New Mexico," said Gordon Eden, cabinet secretary for the New Mexico Department of Public Safety. The town got Armijo a Taser, but the embattled chief has also been fighting allegations of selling a town-owned rifle and of using drug evidence to "train" Nikka. http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/top-dog-new-mexico-town-officer-drug-sniffing-pooch- named-nikka-article-1.1169639 Armijo, Leonard (new)   Bernalillo County Sheriff's Dept.
