    This does raise the question, again, of why Police Unions are allowed.

    Their main role seem to be "protecting" the police from the consequences of their actions, and "supporting" fellow police officers by concealing evidence and lying.

    I, for one, am sick of these police unions. They have forgotten the meaning of "Protect and Serve". Break the police unions in New Mexico, as they endanger the public with their actions.

    And, enact strong "whistle blower" protections for police agencies, to encourage the "good cops" to help us clean out the "rats nest" of bad cops who seem to be dominating the current situation.

    Let's have some "law and order", by making the NM police, finally, accountable to the public citizens.
