ALBUQUERQUE — An Albuquerque officer whose lapel camera footage of his shooting of a 19-year-old woman has not been recovered also did not record two other cases where possible excessive force was used, according to his personnel records.

Documents obtained by KOAT-TV show that Jeremy Dear’s lapel camera wasn’t working when he allegedly punched a man during a January 2013 fight, nor was it working when he reportedly kicked a man in the groin during a traffic stop a month later.

    Lopez is a liar. If the camera malfunctioned during important events, does she really believe the department wouldn't like to know what mad the camera fail? She must thing citizens are retards who'll fall for her crap.

    One failure, OK. Two failures...a little weird. Three? Nope, don't buy it.

    How convenient; better keep this guy on a short lease before he loses his
    gun and forgets where he parked his police car. Or is he already having
    stress related "senior moments" ?

    Three times is a pattern, not a coincidence.
