    With a crime crisis at all time highs, Bernalillo County Police (the county Albuquerque is in) have apparently decided to stop arresting criminals.

    I'm not kidding, it's literally so.

    They make it sound nice, with 'Community Leaders' 'intervening' to give the poor criminals a much-deserved second chance. Hope it works. Glad I don't live in the County.

    What it is, is giving up.

    New Mexico is again last in Child Welfare.

    30 years running, we've fought for last place.
    https://www.lcsun-news.com/story/new...rs/1038974001/


    Here we have a suspect with a long criminal record fleeing police after his 3rd armed robbery in a week here. He shot at police while fleeing in a stolen vehicle.
    At the end, he was trying to run into the occupied grocery store.

    Go to 6:30 in the video.

    This Smith's grocery is a half mile from my house, but I don't go there because it's so dangerous. I drive 3 miles to a different store.
    At that 'safer' store, about a year ago, police shot a man in the parking lot, but I can't find the article. It's buried somewhere under all the other shooting stories.

    phoenix is topping the list for deviance at the moment following the news a female patient at the hacienda healthcare centre gave birth recently

    trouble is she's been in a vegetative state for years

    all male staff at the centre will have to provide a dna sample to the phoenix police department

    In reaction to our education being among the worst in the nation, Albuquerque Public Schools new leadership has banned the testing that produces these results.
    It will be replaced with a test that more closely reflects our 'cultural heritage'. The reason given was students did not understand the vocabulary of the standardized tests.

    Instead of the forever used A-F grading system, students will have a 'dashboard' that emphasizes the positive qualities of the student.

    Teacher evaluations, deemed unfair because some teachers received critical evaluations, will apparently be scrapped.

    This is a recipe for our education not only being the worst in the country, but the worst in the world.

    ^ I made an error and assumed these education 'reforms' were only for APS (Albuquerque schools).

    It's actually the State Board of Education making these changes, and they will affect the entire state.

    https://www.krqe.com/news/education/...lan/1746402367

    Meanwhile we have now a mail-in ballot vote to determine if Property taxes will be raised so each property owner in NM will pay hundreds more every year (money from property taxes goes to schools), plus a bond issue which will raise hundreds of millions for schools. Guess which way I'm voting.

    So our educational leaders are removing any accountability for themselves, students and teachers, while getting hundreds of millions more from taxpayers.

    ^ Surprisingly, - these tax raise votes have occurred most years, and haven't been rejected by voters since 2002 - this time both the property tax increase and bond proposal were defeated by voters.
