Frida Salazar / Daily Lobo 1 Nora Anaya raises her hand as the crowd cheers for her nephew, who was shot by APD 23 years ago. The Justice Rally ended their march on the steps of the Sheriff ’s Department and Albuquerque Police Dept. on 400 Marquette Avenue. 2 The ANSWER Coalition, a social justice and anti-racism organization, carried a coffin covered with the names of people who have been killed by the Albuquerque Police Department. 3 Protesters march from 1st Street to 400 Marquette Avenue, where they stopped at the front entrance to the Albuquerque Police and Sheriff ’s Department.

Seven pairs of hands held up a black plywood coffin Tuesday night at the intersection of Central Avenue and First Street. It had a white wooden cross on its top cover. One of its sides was spread with amateur, almost blurry home photos of various men. Another side read “APD KILLED US” in blue marker. A woman in the audience called out for a red marker, but nobody had one on hand. So the protest proceeded, and several men bore the mock coffin to the Albuquerque Police Department’s headquarters lacking
James Boyd’s name. Some 1,000 people gathered downtown to protest APD’s killing of Boyd, a homeless man who APD officers shot after finding him to have been illegally camping in the Sandia foothills on March 16. The protest was organized by the Act Now, Stop War, End Racism Coalition (ANSWER), a local activist organization. Joel Gallegos, one of the protest’s organizers, said ANSWER began planning the event as soon as APD released a video of Boyd’s killing Friday. He said the officers murdered Boyd. “We wanted to give people an

outlet for their anger,” he said. “And we feel like the healthiest way they can let their anger out is by protesting … We want to make sure that the police department knows that we’re watching. We’re not going to take this anymore.” The video depicts Boyd turning away from officers, saying that he agrees to leave the mountain with them just before the officers open fire. According to the Albuquerque Journal, Boyd appears “to pull out knives in both hands as an officer with a dog approaches him.” As he starts to turn away, officers shoot him. Blood
is visible on the mountain rocks. Attendees of the protest marched across the Alvarado Transportation Center to APD Headquarters on Marquette Avenue, carrying Boyd’s name on placards and barking accusatory chants at police. The brigade swarmed the front steps of the police department’s headquarters amid the uproar. Gallegos, a UNM student majoring in education, said this was the largest protest of APD he had ever attended. ‘All James Boyd’ Relatives of other men shot dead by APD were present at the event. Albuquerque resident Nora Anaya helped lift the mock coffin with her cane, unable to control her tears. More than two decades ago, she said, an APD officer killed her nephew, then 23. “He was in love with the wrong girl,” she said. “She was at a party; they got in a fight. She got shot. He took her
in the car to the hospital. She landed up in the car with my nephew as police shot through the window as he was driving down Atrisco. It hurts. It still hurts 23 years later.” Anaya, who attended the protest dressed in funeral garb embellished with a veil, said she was unable to speak out about her nephew’s killing at that time. But because she felt the same despair after Boyd’s murder, she said, she came out in support of a good cause. “The feeling is just as bad,” she said. “He’s a brother, and he didn’t deserve to be killed. He wasn’t harming anyone. He was camping out away from people. James Boyd deserved to live.” APD has shot 23 men to death since 2010, Gallegos said. One of these men, Daniel Tillison, is survived by his wife, Mary Jobe, and their three children.

Regents mull tuition hikes for faculty, staff compensation by Chloe Henson
After four hours of presentations and discussion, the UNM Board of Regents decided to postpone the decision on next year’s tuition and fee rates. At UNM’s Budget Summit on Tuesday in the Student Union Building, the regents were supposed to vote on a budget recommendation provided by President Robert Frank and the Strategic Budget Leadership Team to determine tuition and fee rates for fiscal year 2015. The regents would also have voted on compensation rates for staff and faculty. The regents voted to postpone the decision in order to gather more information. Regent Gene Gallegos said the regents have asked to be included in the budgetmaking process earlier every year in order to better understand the recommendation. He said that this year the SBLT provided information too late for the regents

to ask enough questions about the budget scenarios. The regents received three of the scenarios on Friday and another one Monday afternoon, Gallegos said. “I don’t see how we can make decisions based on last-minute information like this,” he said. Later in the meeting, Gallegos moved to table the item on the agenda that addressed approval of compensation, tuition and fee rates. Board of Regents President Jack Fortner declared a special meeting to be held on Friday at noon in the SUB’s Ballroom C to make a decision on the item. President Frank said he is also unsatisfied with the process of creating recommendations for the budget. “What I told (the SBLT) was I wanted to meet with them in the next few weeks to have a conversation about how we could improve this process dramatically to move this conversation much earlier,” he said. Frank cited several processes used by
different institutions as possible solutions. Some of the president’s suggestions included delaying the decision for later in the school year or having a conversation about the budget earlier, and then coming back to the discussion later to make a final decision. The SBLT gathers information from students, staff, deans, faculty, the Regents Academic/Student Affairs & Research Committee and the Regents Finance & Facilities Committee, according to a document delineating the SBLT charge. The SBLT then offers a recommendation to the president, who then makes a recommendation to the Board of Regents, according to the document. The regents brought up several concerns about the recommendation during the meeting, including a proposed increase in tuition that would be used to pay for a raise in compensation for staff and faculty. Regent Suzanne Quillen said raising tuition year after year is not a sustainable way to solve issues at the University. “We are just, every year, putting a band-

aid on a very large problem,” she said. Quillen said the regents should think outside the box to get money for compensating staff and faculty. But Provost Chaouki Abdallah said increasing compensation could retain faculty and help students in the long run. “The students are not just our customers in this — they’re our partners in this,” he said. “We can’t teach them if they don’t learn. Therefore, part of this is for them, for us to be able to help them by providing them with more support.” Abdallah said the cost of UNM’s education is still relatively low, considering the value students receive from their educations. He said investing in faculty now would act as a trade-off and help students later. Gallegos said he hopes that regents will be more involved in the process of making the budget recommendations in the future. “I won’t be here,” he said. “But I hope in the future the rest of these members are put into the process at least a couple of months before this process is done.”

Jobe, an Albuquerque resident, brought their daughter Jazzelle, 5, to the protest. Jobe’s husband died two years ago on March 19. Walking to the APD headquarters, Jobe, carrying a pink Dora the Explorer backpack, asked Jazzelle if she missed her “daddy.” Jazzelle, who was 3 years old when her father was killed, looked down, turned away and covered her ears. “It was the worst experience in my life,” Jobe said. “I have three children by him, and it’s an everyday struggle and an everyday fight having to deal with my kids and fighting for their dad. Nobody and nothing will ever replace him. He was robbed of his life.” Now Jobe has to support herself while going to school. “We need to realize that police brutality is a lot larger than we think it is,” she said. “It’s pretty sad that it took Mr. Boyd being killed for people to open their eyes and realize that this is a big issue in Albuquerque. There’s a lot of other men who were unarmed and killed by APD.” And she said she wishes for APD to fire and prosecute all of the officers responsible for killing her husband and the 22 other men. “They murdered him,” she said. “The cops should be fired and put in prison for murder.” ‘Bullshit, Bullshit’ From the steps of APD headquarters, Mike Pysner aimed to make protesters’ blood boil. Pysner, a veteran of the war in Iraq, drove from Los Angeles to join Tuesday’s protests. “Who here thinks that those officers who shot James Boyd feared for their lives?” he shouted through a megaphone. A resounding “no” followed with a round of booing. “Bullshit, bullshit,”
the crowd chanted. In a press conference following the department’s release of the helmet-cam video of Boyd’s killing, APD Chief Gordon Eden justified the shooting. Eden told the Journal that Boyd made a “threatening” move toward officers prior to the gunfire. Police also claim a Crisis Intervention Team failed to negotiate with Boyd, according to the Journal. Eden’s statements further enraged other activist groups in the city. Andres Valdez, executive director of the New Mexico Vecino United, an organization against excessive police force in the city, said he demands that Eden recant his statements. Valdez also demands that Albuquerque Mayor Richard Berry fire Eden if he refuses to do so. “Do we want a mayor who would exonerate (Eden) for such a terrible thing?” he said. Valdez aims to meet with Eden and Berry in mid-April. His organization also intends to meet with the Department of Justice today to discuss the possibility of murder charges against APD. “We’re asking for formal charges of murder to be filed against the officers involved in the shooting and killing of James Boyd,” he said. “There’s plenty of evidence. The video that was so blatant and vivid was enough evidence … An investigation is not needed.” NMVU on Monday filed a letter with the DOJ to formally request to press charges. According to the letter, “what is equally disturbing is that it appears not to matter that officers engage in this type of behavior as they are under investigation by your department.” The DOJ launched an investigation

C Truck reported stolen from GR parking lot On March 17, UNMPD dispatched an officer to the GR parking lot at 1800 Mesa Vista Drive on report of a stolen truck. The victim alleged that his red 2000 Ford Ranger pickup was stolen between the hours of 7:15 a.m. and 5:15 p.m., according to the report. According to the report, the victim checked with his wife and family, who told him that none of them had taken the truck from the lot. The truck was submitted to the NCIC database as stolen. There were no suspects or witnesses at the time of the report, and no further action was taken at that time.
Police: Man arrested for threats at UNMH On March 19, UNMPD responded to a report of domestic violence and threatening behavior. According to the report, the victim told the officer that while her four-month-old daughter was recovering from open-heart surgery at UNMH, the victim received several angry, explicitly threatening text messages from her boyfriend, the biological father of her daughter. The man called her and said he was “coming to the hospital to shoot (the victim), shoot her family and shoot up the hospital,” according to the victim. A short time later, the victim’s boyfriend arrived at the hospital and was taken into custody without incident, but denied all

RIME BRIEFS allegations against him, according to the report. The report states that the victim was granted an emergency restraining order, and her boyfriend was booked and taken to the prisoner transport center.
UNMH patient struck worker, report states On March 19, an officer responded to a report of battery on a health care worker in the UNMH Emergency Room. According to the report, a patient admitted for alcohol intoxication became agitated and threw himself onto the floor from his bed. As two health care workers attempted to restrain him while waiting for UNMH security, the patient wrapped his legs around the victim and kicked him on the side of the head, according to the report. UNMH security reportedly arrived soon after and restrained the patient, who hospital staff told UNMPD is a “regular” who routinely threatens hospital staff with violence. The officer reports attempting to interview the patient, who instead chose to shout at hospital staff. The patient was not taken into custody due to his medical status. According to the report the victim signed a notice of intent to prosecute, and the case was closed and forwarded to the District Attorney’s office for evaluation.

Stolen handbag found near scene, but empty On March 20, an officer on patrol was approached by a victim who reported an auto burglary. The victim told the officer that her handbag was in her friend’s vehicle, which was secured, and that there were no signs of forced entry, according to the report. The officer later located the victim’s handbag in a nearby alleyway and returned it. However, the victim’s laptop was missing from the bag, according to the report. There are no suspects or witnesses at this time, but the victim stated that she intends to provide her laptop’s serial number to UNMPD, according to the report. by John Tyczkowski @JCTyczkowski

Advertisement may be sexual harassment
I find the photo in the TD’s North Show Club advertisement in the Daily Lobo’s Tuesday, March 25 issue to be very offensive, discriminatory and possibly unlawful harassment in the workplace. I have no issue with the advertisement, just the photo. I believe this photo does not represent the values of UNM, shows poor judgment and, frankly, I was very surprised to see it in this publication. The following is from the U.S. Office of Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s policy on harassment. The second passage is from UNM’s harassment policy. Federal Policy: “Harassment is a form of employment discrimination that violates Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967, (ADEA), and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, (ADA). Harassment is unwelcome conduct that is based on race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy), national origin, age (40 or older), disability or genetic information. Harassment becomes unlawful where 1) enduring the offensive conduct becomes a condition of continued employment, or 2) the conduct is severe or pervasive enough to create a work environment that a reasonable person would consider intimidating, hostile or abusive. Anti-discrimination laws also prohibit harassment against individuals in retaliation for filing a discrimination charge, testifying or participating in any way in an investigation, proceeding or lawsuit under these laws; or opposing employment practices that they reasonably believe discriminate against individuals, in violation of these laws. Petty slights, annoyances and isolated incidents (unless extremely serious) will not rise to the level of illegality. To be unlawful, the conduct must create a work environment that would be intimidating, hostile or offensive to reasonable people. Offensive conduct may include, but is not limited to, offensive jokes, slurs, epithets or name calling, physical assaults or threats, intimidation, ridicule or mockery, insults or put-downs, offensive objects or pictures and interference with work performance.” UNM policy: “The University of New Mexico Sexual Harassment Policy can be obtained from the office of Equal Opportunity Programs. The following is a synopsis of the policy, approved by the University Board of Regents on August 9, 1988, and The University of New Mexico Sexual Harassment Grievance Procedure, signed by the University President on August 10, 1988. The University is committed to creating and maintaining a community in which students and employees can learn and work together in an atmosphere: - that enhances productivity and draws on the diversity of its members; and - is free from all forms of disrespectful conduct, harassment, exploitation or intimidation, including sexual. The purpose of this policy is to foster a dialogue on positive and effective inter-gender communication and interaction but also to take whatever action may be needed to prevent, correct and, when necessary, to discipline behavior which violates this policy.” Judy Goering UNM staff

The worst thing about marijuana is its illegality Editor,
I strongly support legalizing marijuana. Booze, cigarettes and prescription drugs kill millions worldwide every year, but I know of no one killed from using only marijuana. In the 1970s I took some tokes offered to me, but I have never sold, never bought, never grown marijuana in my life. If I had a disease where my only choices were a prescription drug or medical marijuana, I would choose marijuana — no question. Eating it raw or vaporizing it is healthier than smoking it. More than 4,000 years ago a leading Chinese doctor recommended marijuana for many of the same sicknesses doctors now prescribe it for. Marijuana has 75 unique healing ingredients not found in any other plant. Marijuana is the single most versatile herbal remedy on earth. No other plant contains as wide a range of healing herbal ingredients. Marijuana can help cancer, PTSD, chronic pain, nausea, inflammation, AIDS, Alzheimer’s, other dementia, immunity, appetite, glaucoma, Lou Gehrig’s disease, peripheral neuropathy, anorexia, hepatitis C, Crohn’s disease, insomnia, arthritis, epilepsy, Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis and hospice patients. I damn the racist U.S. drug war which is devastating low-income communities of color. Far more African-Americans and Latino youth percentage-wise get locked up for marijuana than Anglo youth, even though rates of use are about the same. U.S. hysteria against marijuana was rooted for decades in racism against Mexicans and AfricanAmericans, and in the greed of timber, petrochemical and drug companies. The last three U.S. presidents — Clinton, George Bush and Obama — all admitted to past use of marijuana. All three were later re-elected. If they had grown up low-income and non-white in the inner city, they all might have lived in prison instead of the White House, and in some states, never allowed to vote for president for the rest of their lives — let alone become president. Until marijuana is legal in New Mexico, I refuse to risk arrest, court, fines and jail for
Letters myself or for whoever would sell marijuana to me, if I were to use marijuana without being approved for medical marijuana. I refuse to make my life more secretive and to increase my fear of police. Buying imported illegal marijuana from Mexico pays for the drug gangs to mass murder thousands of people in Mexico. Except for the serious legal risk, I would infinitely prefer my friends using their own homegrown organic marijuana instead of smoking any cigarettes or drinking any booze. Don Schrader Daily Lobo reader
Video shows Boyd was disoriented, not violent Editor, I saw a video released by Bearing Arms this morning that is purported to show a justified shooting. I would like to suggest that you look at the video with some questions in mind before you watch. Police shot and killed a homeless man for camping. The Albuquerque Police Department says the shooting/killing was justified. I say the video clearly shows that it was not proper to use lethal force and I hope it is presented to a grand jury for bringing charges. A flash bang grenade was used on the homeless man, and in the video you can see it go off very close to the man’s feet. The purpose of a flash bang is to deaden the hearing of the individual it’s used against, and to temporarily blind them so that police can make an assault while a man is dazed and confused. If it’s used in an enclosed space, it also has a concussion effect. Wikipedia states that the M-84 Stun Grenade gives off 170-180 decibels of noise and over a million candlepower of light within 5 feet of the device. Exposed individuals experience disorientation, confusion and loss of coordination and balance. There is risk of lethal injury, but these grenades are considered to be less than lethal force. The article also states that the man was shot with a beanbag round and Tased. The Taser is designed to cause loss of large muscle control. The bean bag round is designed to be non-lethal but to also cause loss of muscle
control by causing a spasm or other reaction to render an individual temporarily immobile. A baby tends to fall on its butt, but by the time you are full-grown, a fall from even that height can cause serious injuries; thus, instinct is to try to get your hands and arms under you to cushion the fall. So, let me see if I can understand the situation. A flash bang was used to deafen the homeless man so that he couldn’t hear officer commands, and it temporarily blinded him, rendering the police commands unintelligible to him. He was Tased, which in the videos I’ve seen cause a loss of muscle control sufficient to cause a man to fall, and hit with a bean bag round also causing muscle spasms (also enough to cause a person to fall). Then, the individual tried to get his hands under him to cushion the fall he was experiencing due to his loss of major muscle control, or maybe his muscle twitches just cause him to fall that way. There is barely a pause between the first round fired (presumably the bean bag round, as it was stated that the non-lethal weapons were all used first) and the next 6 shots in quick succession. In the video presented, in my opinion, no police officer was close enough to the homeless man to be attacked by him with the knife he was holding. So, a homeless man who should be expected to fall because he had been flash banged, Tased and hit with a bean bag round was shot because he was falling away from the officers. Does this sound like a justifiable use of force to you? And people wonder why the police are to be feared as least as much as they are respected. Mike Martin Daily Lobo reader

Coaches might be key for defense
Wednesday, March 26, 2014/ Page 5
by J.R. Oppenheim
firstname.lastname@example.org @JROppenheim Coaching can make a dramatic difference. That’s what New Mexico head coach Bob Davie is betting on with changes he made to his defensive staff. In the offseason Davie let go of Jeff Mills, Lobo football’s former defensive coordinator, and replaced him with linebackers coach Kevin Cosgrove. He also brought Barry Sacks aboard to lead the defensive line and Charles McMillian as the defensive backs coach. The changes were necessary. While the Lobos managed to move the ball and score offensively last season, the defense could hardly keep pace with anybody on the schedule. The team’s total defense ranked 119th nationally at 516.6 yards per game, and they surrendered a 42.8-point average. Reforming the Lobos to even a respectable position in the football ranks isn’t an easy task, and Davie knew this when he took the job. In his press conference Monday just before spring ball started, he compared the program’s restoration to turning a luxury cruise liner: a slow process. “It’s like turning the Queen Mary around: there’s no easy way to do it,” he said. “I think as long as we stay on course and stay patient, this is the next step in that.”
Aaron Sweet/@AaronCSweet / Daily Lobo Defensive Coordinator Kevin Cosgrove encourages linebackers during warmup drills on Tuesday. Cosgrove looks to revive a defense ranked near the bottom of almost every defensive category last season. That’s been the Davie way from Prairie View A&M before arriving the start of his tenure back in 2012. at UNM, and Sacks spent time at He said Monday that the program is California. about where he expected it to be after Along with Archie McDaniel two seasons: a team with seven wins with the outside linebackers, the over that span.

Heading into 2014’s spring practice, UNM head football coach Bob Davie knows what issues his team faces. They’re the same problems that have plagued the New Mexico football team for the past two seasons: inexperience and defense. The Lobos only have seven seniors who have been with the program four or more years, and last year’s defense ranked near the bottom of almost every statistical category. Three years into one of the biggest reclamation projects in college football, Davie said it’s time to see some results on the field for UNM. Over the past five seasons the Lobos have gone 10-51; they’ve gone 7-18 in the last two years under Davie. On Tuesday Davie began his quest with the first of 15 scheduled spring practices for UNM. “Now it’s time for us to take the culture that we’ve developed, some of the behaviors that we’ve started to develop, and hopefully get some results,” he said at Monday’s spring football press conference. “Obviously that’s the

next step, and a lot of times the most difficult step.” The process began earlier in the offseason with the firing of former defensive coordinator/defensive backs coach Jeff Mills, who was replaced by inside linebackers coach Kevin Cosgrove. Charles McMillan took the open position at defensive backs coach and Barry Sacks became the new defensive line coach after Archie McDaniel moved to coach the outside linebackers. Davie said both coaches are familiar with UNM’s defensive scheme, which will help smooth their transitions. “As far as the staff, I’m interested to watch. I think their personalities will be put on this defense quickly,” Davie said. “I think it definitely upgrades our staff. I think both guys with their experience and what they do helps us so much. I think there’s a lot of confidence that’s been gained.” The Lobos have six returning starters on the defensive side of the ball: defensive end Brett Bowers, linebackers Dakota Cox and Javarie Johnson, safety David Guthrie and cornerbacks SaQwan Edwards and Cranston Jones. Bowers was named an All-Mountain West honorable mention last year.
Davie said constructing a defense has been the number one priority for the Lobos since their last game against Boise State. “We have to play defense to win — we just have to,” he said. “It’s been 100 percent of our full attention every day to build our defense into something that this city, this state and these people can be proud of.” Offensively, UNM also has six starters coming back with quarterback Clayton Mitchem, wide receivers Marquis Bundy and Jeric Magnant, guards LaMar Bratton and Jamal Price and tackle Johnny Vizcaino. Signal-caller Cole Gautsche is returning as well for the Lobos. No Spring Game For the third consecutive year, Davie decided against scheduling a spring game. Davie said he would like to have one, but he’s worried about injuries and depth issues. There are several players on the roster who are not cleared for full contact due to injuries. “It’s hard to go out there and have enough guys to say ‘let’s turn it loose and scrimmage’ because there’s 22 of your guys going when you’re scrimmaging,” Davie said. “I’m not ruling it out, but we’ll do something.”
