'In a move that would be a near death blow to the police accountability movement, New Mexico’s governor, Susana Martinez is pushing legislation through the house that would grant legal immunity to cops for their actions while on duty. Clearly ignoring the fact that New Mexico is notorious for killer cops, the legislation has many supporters.
“I don’t believe that police officers should be under this constant threat of lawsuits that will often cause them to pause,” Martinez recently told the Albuquerque Journal. “If they’re following their training, there should be something that protects them.”
However, their training has been used to justify the outright murder of citizens throughout the state—many of which have been captured on video. And, as TFTP previously reported, New Mexico cops have been caught editing and deleting these videos, too.
On March 16, 2014, Albuquerque police officers executed James Boyd for illegal camping. The entire incident was captured on the officer’s body cam which led to the now-retired Officer Keith Sandy and Officer Dominique Perez being charged with the murder of the 38-year-old homeless man suffering schizophrenia in August 2015.
However, because of the already corrupt and broken ‘justice’ system in New Mexico, Perez went from facing second-degree murder charges, to returning to the Albuquerque Police Department with an extra $143,159 in back wages and benefits.
Perez is not alone. Even when grand juries find killer cops unjustified, often times, the DA will simply refuse to prosecute.'
