But as she lifted her head, Baker slammed her face onto rocks, her attorneys said. An image of Beck's bloodied face was presented as evidence during the trial. Her nose and wrist were broken and fractured. When her husband then attempted to help her, he was detained by Campa. He testified that he believed his wife was "choking on her own blood," according to his attorneys. During the trial, a police audio recording of the incident was played for the jury. In the recording, Baker can be heard saying "she got thrown" and she got a "face full of rocks," Strickland said. A female officer then said "cool" in response.The Becks were then placed under arrest. 2018/02/25--https://www.lcsun-news.com/story/news/crime/2018/02/25/city-settles-las-cruces-police- brutality-case-1-4-million/365390002/ Photograpy is not a crime dot com: (2017/02/17) New Mexico couple awarded 1.6 million in police abuse [later dropped to 1.4 million] https://photographyisnotacrime.com/2017/02/17/new-mexico-couple-awarded-1-6-million-in-police-abuse- case/ Candelaria, Lawrence     Older 1998/04/25  Albuquerque.

By Madeline Schmitt https://www.krqe.com/news/lawsuit-apd-targeted-needlessly-killed-man-fleeing-from- police/1019747696 Excerpt:  A new lawsuit says the Albuquerque Police Department targeted and needlessly killed a man who was fleeing from police in July 2014. Jeremy Robertson, 33, was a burglar and car thief with a lengthy record when he ran from plain clothes officers trying to arrest him about two years ago for a probation violation. "The subject was still armed and posing an immediate threat to officers," Deputy Chief William Roseman said at the time. "At this time we believe two shots were fired and two officers were involved." Police quickly explained what happened following the shooting near Central and Eubank. The two SWAT officers fired at Robertson from across a field near a gas station and Subway restaurant. A gun was found next to Robertson on the ground. "As the subject fled, he pulled a hand gun from his waist band," Roseman said. This was just months after Robertson had a run in with police where he allegedly rammed a patrol car. Now a lawsuit says Robertson was wrongfully killed that July day and that police officers, specifically the two SWAT officers, are the ones who created the danger in the busy area of town -- not Robertson. https://www.krqe.com/news/lawsuit-apd-targeted-needlessly-killed-man-fleeing-from- police/1019747696 (Carter R cont) Santa Fe New Mexican (2016/12/09) Feds confirm investigation of APD body cam allegations.  By Jeff Proctor. https://www.santafenewmexican.com/news/local_news/feds-confirm-investigation-of-apd-body-cam- allegations/article_d5720b39-5ffe-5274-a40c-7a7216283a2e.htm (2016/11/18) Affidavit APD illegally deleted altered videos of shooting.  By Jeff Proctor https://www.santafenewmexican.com/news/local_news/affidavit-apd-illegally-deleted-altered-videos- of-shootings/article_a6b6bdb9-bbb8-5523-b474-673a09dea482.html Castillo, Victor     (2012) Portales.
