I got pulled over for DUI 5 times in one night in ABQ in one hour. Took me forever to get home.
I was hammered, too.
Everytime I pulled out my wallet, they took one look at my shield and let me go. Except the last cop. He made my buddy drive. I argued he was more hammered than me, but he insisted. I was afraid my pal was going to wreck my '48 IH Travelall.
Made it home, but damn, it took forever. Couldn't get two blocks without getting pulled over.

I was weaving more pulling over and back out into the lane than I was just driving.

25 cent tequila nights. those were the days.

Is it my imagination, or are Arizona and Texas leaking into New Mexico? Between the David Eckert case (traffic stop leading to enemas and colonoscopy) in Deming, and trigger-happy cops in Albuquerque, I'm not so sure I'd even want to set foot in New Mexico now.

DuudeStanky: For those people who are sickos or want to see the videos to justify your outrage, check out Liveleak's footage of the APD's past 2 days' worth of shootings.

*warning: contains people getting killed*

I dont know about the second one, but I'd bet money in the first one that cop knew he was going to kill that guy when he got there. You can tell by what he's saying.

EngineerAU: Meanwhile in Germany, during 2011 police used a total of 85 bullets across the entire country, most of which were warning shots. "49 warning shots, 36 shots on suspects. 15 persons were injured, 6 were killed."

I'll leave it to others to debate if this means cops in the US are more trigger happy or if Americans are more criminal.

Nope its and endless loop. See if we take guns away, then only criminals will have guns, but criminals have guns because we dont take guns away. NRA idiots don't see that YOU HAVE TO START SOMEWHERE. Guns are not readily available in Germany (nor any other 1st world country) so cops dont kill there citizens so much

This is not true in any way: Small arms per capita by country

Not only that, but it's entirely probable that the actual number of guns in those countries is higher than the official count:

The German
police union estimates that Germany has "about 45 million civilian
guns: about 10 million registered firearms; 20 million that should be
registered, but apparently are not
; and 15 million firearms-such as
antiques .. .and black-powder weapons .. .that do not have to be
registered."83
The German experience also tells us something about the
staying power of defiance. Registration was introduced in Germany
in 1972 "when the nation's civilian holdings reportedly totalled [sic]
17-20 million firearms." 4 Only 3.2 million of these guns were
registered. "In the thirty-five years since then, roughly 8 million
additional firearms were legally acquired, accounting for the rest of
the registered guns thought to exist today."8 5

No point in wasting taxpayer money investigating them, since no police officer or FBI agent is ever at fault.

There has to be some sort of culture or training issue with APD. It would make an interesting study. I know I've lived in Albuquerque and now about a half hour from El Paso--both cities are similar in size, the crime rates are similar as far as I can tell, but you don't hear of El Paso PD shooting near as many people as APD does.

My only run ins with APD have been mostly positive, so maybe I found the four good cops on the force.

They didn't even shoot the drunk guy that I didn't know that insisted he was at the right house and should be let in at 3am. Believe me, by the time I called them after telling him to GTFO for the fourth time, I wouldn't have minded.

Only 22? Not ready for the big leagues, are we?

ArcadianRefugee: I bet police have shot and killed more citizens than that. That is, unless you think criminals aren't citizens.


Everyone the cops kill is retroactively a criminal. Just read the newspaper reports about it. It's always the dead guy's fault. Funny how that works.

Flragnararch: Makh: Except for me.
You know why?

'Cause I had my tray table up.
And my seat back in the full upright position...

csb time

So I've just gotten home and ready to call it a day after a bit at work when my friend calls me up and says she's nearby and wants to do something because she missed out the previous day.  I'm kinda not in the mood until I remember that it's Thursday and we just got a dueling piano bar in town with no cover on Thursdays.  So I recommend, she's down, and we meet up there.

All starts out decent: couple of drinks, good natured sing along with easy songs.  She gets her go to song played and a few others played.   Then the drinks start kicking in and we start to get obscure.  We got them playing every little crazy thing we can think of: show toons, big band, jazz, blues, Tenacioud D, Johnny Cash, Royals, anything to challenge these guys.  Then all of a sudden she comes out with the part in Albuquerque that goes, 'if you'd like to make a call, please hang up and try again'.   i'm psyched because 1) would never have guessed she'd know it, and 2) its the perfect challenge.

so I write the request and throw down a buck.  The guy reads it right away as its in between songs and comments with a laugh, 'for a dollar I'll do the minute version of Albequerque'  which I took as this guy will do ALL OF ALBEQUERQUE for the right price.  I bust out ten more bucks and tell the guy that we want every last second of Albequerque.

So he does.

He gets the melody going on the piano and gets the other guy to get a drum kit going on his piano, which he does.  Then he gets started, and this guy is committed and passionate about getting this song done to perfection.

Sauerkraut part comes and he belts it out perfectly.   AHHHH BIG BOWL OF SAUERKRAUT! EVERY SINGLE MORNING!

And we were going crazy right along with him.  He gets to the big fat hermaphrodite with a flock of seagulls haircut and only one nostril and I'm narrating right along with like an idiot.  He steals ...


Hope you had a good time at Knotted Pianos!

Sincerely,

The guy who sang it for you. :-)

Well, at least everyone is safe at the Albuquerque Holiday Inn. The towels are oh so fluffy there.
