The Independent Student Voice of UNM since 1895

Justice department forums focus on APD by Chloe Henson @ChloeHenson5 Officials from the Department of Justice received public input and discussed possible reforms for the Albuquerque Police Department on Monday night. The meeting, which was held at the Alamosa Community Center, is the first of three forums scheduled to occur throughout the city this week. “The purpose of tonight’s meeting is for us to get community feedback,” said Damon Martinez, acting U.S. attorney for the DOJ. “You have so many stakeholders in this process that it is crucial for the community to get feedback … It’s important for us to try to target and understand what people’s feelings are.” Martinez said the DOJ aims to collect recommendations in order to craft an agreement with the city regarding the APD. He said the department suffers from systemic issues with leadership and training of officers. Earlier this month the DOJ released findings from an investigation that conclude the APD engages in patterns of excessive force that violate citizens’ Fourth Amendment rights. Luis Saucedo, deputy chief of the DOJ Civil Rights Division, said the department intends to reform the APD and enable it to function on its own without threats of excessive violence. “We don’t want to create dependency on the DOJ,” he said. “DOJ cannot be here for 100 years policing the police.” Although the DOJ did listen to some members of the local community speak, the event was not as open to speakers as some believed it would be. “I think the Department of Justice came here to take interviews

Martinez said his department intends to gather community feedback to help reform the Albuquerque Police Department. with people, but people came here to talk to the Department of Justice and the group,” said Danny Hernandez, a UNM masters student who attended the forum. “I think it was a mixed understanding of what was going to happen.” Scott Greenwood, a civil rights attorney, spoke at the forum. He said he will negotiate on behalf of the mayor, the City Attorney Office and the community to reform APD. “You have my pledge to craft an

agreement, with my counterparts and colleagues in the room, that fixes the problem,” he said. “It will fix the problem.” Some speakers during the forum supported the mandatory use of lapel cameras by APD. Greenwood said he will make recommendations to the city leadership on how to improve the police department. While he did not express the details of the recommendations, Greenwood said one of the topics to be covered is lapel cameras.

“It’s safe to say that the operation and use of lapel cameras will be part of (the recommendations),” he said. In March, footage captured by a lapel camera of police shooting James Boyd motivated Albuquerque activists to protest APD and hold a vigil for Boyd. After last week’s fatal shooting of 19-year-old Mary Hawkes, APD Chief Gorden Eden said police were unable to obtain footage from the lapel camera of the officer who shot Hawkes. Hernandez said he isn’t yet sure

that there are going to be changes in APD. “I don’t trust there are going to be changes until we make changes happen,” he said. “Before you can recover from something you have to admit that you have a problem. And APD has yet to admit that they have a problem.” The DOJ will hold another community forum Tuesday at 5 p.m. at the Palo Duro Senior Center. The final meeting will be Wednesday at 5 p.m. at the Cesar Chavez Community Center.

Student Cabinet proposed amid fee review furor By Chloe Henson and Zachary Pavlik

UNM President Robert Frank is forming a new student group in an attempt to increase inclusiveness at the University. A statement released by the president’s office stated that the group, to be called the Student Cabinet, is intended to serve as another avenue for students to participate in University affairs. “The Student Cabinet is designed to be another venue for dialogue between students and the administration, in addition to the existing channels of communication with our student governments,” the document stated, “(Associated Students of the University of New Mexico) and (Graduate and Professional Student Association)

are, and will remain, the official representatives of our students in many critical university activities, including many university committees and processes.” The document stated that the president’s office will announce the nomination process this week. It added that the office will solicit nominations of students across campus, and that members of the cabinet will be expected to serve multi-semester terms. “Our current thinking is that

two-year terms are appropriate, with half of the Cabinet cycling off each year to allow for new perspectives while providing stability and continuity,” the document stated. “We are optimistic that we can have Cabinet members selected over the course of the next month, with meetings of the group beginning in the fall.” According to the document, the cabinet aims to incorporate students who normally are unable to participate in University

goings-on in the traditional sense provided by ASUNM and GPSA. “It will act as an additional forum for dialogue between students and the administration on a wide array of issues that are important to students,” the document stated. “Our student body is diverse. This additional student group can help capture even more opinions and perspectives from students all across campus.” GPSA president Priscila Poliana said President Frank needs to begin the process of improving student involvement by improving his communication with ASUNM President Isaac Romero and herself. “If the intent is to increase our student participation, he could start by meeting with Isaac and (myself ),” Poliana said, “If he’s not willing to meet with the elected leaders, how can we ever make

the Student Cabinet something that is effective and inclusive?” Poliana said Frank has not answered her emails since he proposed changes to the Student Fee Review Board. She said effective communication can only happen with trust, and the student government welcomes the chance for Frank to regain the trust he lost by going back on his deal with GPSA and ASUNM. “Even though we support and appreciate all attempts by administrators to build a bridge of communication between students and administration, in our capacity as elected leaders we want President Frank to be responsive to us,” Poliana said. “I am requesting that President Frank come to our meeting on Friday, a meeting that is being promoted

by Zachary Pavlik @zachpavlik Former Albuquerque Police Department commander Nicholas Bakas said he supports communication and strives to confront any issue with meaningful discussion. He said the department should do the same. “I’ve always admired an officer who can go into the situation and talk and communicate, sit down and have an eye-to-eye conversation with an individual who may have made a bad decision, rather than resorting to force,” Bakas said.“Not that you are always going to have success talking to people, but that should be our first entry into the issue.” Bakas, who now works as a private investigator, said the most recent APD shooting took place in a spot that used to be under his command. “That’s my former area of command; I know the area well,” Bakas said. “My friend and classmate was gunned down by an armed robber feet away from where this young lady was shot and killed, so that was a bit of déjà vu … But it’s a tough situation all the way around.” On April 21, an APD officer shot and killed 19-year-old Mary Hawkes. Police say Hawkes was suspected of auto theft. Bakas said the problem with officers’ use of force might

stem from lack of education in communication and dealing with specific situations. He said this may be the result of the creation of specialized task forces. “Back in the days when I was working the streets as a young cop, we didn’t have all these specialty units — the SWAT team, this team, that team,” Bakas said. “You had to be able to say, ‘Hey, how do we take care of this? What do we need to do?’ rather than back off and call in the specialty unit to take care of it. You had to handle it. You had to be able to communicate.” Bakas said he cannot claim to be neutral when it comes to the Department of Justice report on Albuquerque law enforcement because he has actively worked for the state and the government. Bakas said he read the DOJ report and thought it was harsh, but possibly what is needed for growth. “It’s very scathing, very damning, very difficult to acknowledge,” he said. “But acknowledge we must. I’m all in favor of taking the recommendations to heart and moving forward with what it’s going to take for us to improve as a department, and as a city.” Bakas said the situation involves much more than the police force. He said he does not want to see the force isolated and viewed as a unique problem by the public.

“I don’t think it’s solely a police issue,” he said. “I would hate for individuals to get the impression that citizens can simply stand back and keep score with respect to the actions of police officers. I think, as I

read the DOJ report, that there is work for everyone to do.” Bakas said teamwork is needed to remedy what has already happened and that there will need to be collaboration between politicians, business

groups and religious groups. He said that families, school systems and the mental health community will have to step up and provide a solid support structure for individuals in order for progress to occur.

Libraries from the SFRB recommendations. Poliana and Romero said they believed they had an agreement with Frank that no changes would be made until fall. Romero said that he supports the cabinet initiative, but that it was not at all expected.

“I guess it kind of came out of nowhere. I think it’s a great initiative — we support this initiative, I do of course,” he said. “It gives students a voice and allows the administration to communicate with students, which is what we’re all about. That is the reason why we exist in

the first place.” However, Romero said the cabinet does not address the problem of Frank taking away ASUNM’s and GPSA’s input in the SFRB issue. Romero said he and Poliana would like to discuss the cabinet with Frank further in order to

make sure that the future of communication between student government, administration and students does not suffer. “We love the idea and we do want to meet and discuss it with him,” he said. “We want to make sure that nobody is stepping on anyone’s toes.”

Ukranian unrest intensifies

Efrem Lukatsky / AP photo Masked pro-Russian activists assault a participant of a pro-Ukrainian rally as police try to stop the clash in Donetsk, Ukraine on Monday. About a thousand pro-Russian activists armed with sticks and steel rods attacked the participants of a pro-Ukrainian rally in the center of Donetsk. Ukraine’s acting government and the West have accused Russia of orchestrating the unrest, which they fear Moscow could use as a pretext for an invasion.

by Maria Danilova The Associated Press

KIEV, Ukraine — The mayor of Ukraine’s second-largest city was shot in the back Monday and hundreds of men attacked a peaceful pro-Ukraine rally with batons, bricks and stun grenades, wounding dozens as tensions soared in Ukraine’s volatile east. One presidential candidate said the mayor was deliberately targeted in an effort to destabilize the entire city of Kharkiv, a hub of 1.5 million people. Russia’s defense chief meanwhile assured U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel in a telephone call that Russia would not invade Ukraine, the Pentagon said. Armed insurgents tacitly backed by Moscow are seeking more autonomy in eastern Ukraine — and possibly independence or annexation with Russia. Ukraine’s acting government and the West have accused Russia of orchestrating the unrest, which they fear Moscow could use as a pretext for an invasion. Ratcheting up the pressure, the United States levied new sanctions on seven Russian officials and 17 companies with links to President Vladimir Putin’s inner circle. The U.S. also revoked licenses for some high-tech items that could be used by the Russian military. In Brussels, the European Union moved to add 15 more officials to its Russian sanctions list to protest Moscow’s meddling in Ukraine. That decision, reached by the ambassadors to the EU’s 28 nations, was being formally confirmed by the EU’s governments, officials told The Associated Press. In the eastern city of Donetsk, about 1,000 demonstrators carrying Ukrainian flags marched through the streets to hold a proUkrainian rally Monday night. They were attacked by several hundred armed men shouting “Russia!” Police attempted to hold the pro-Russia gang back, but then largely stood aside as dozens of protesters were battered. Hennady Kernes, the mayor of Kharkiv, was shot in the back Monday morning while cycling on the outskirts of the city, his office said. He underwent surgery and was reported by the hospital to be in “grave but stable” condition.

Officials have not commented on who could be behind the attack on the mayor; Kernes was a man who may have angered either side. Kernes’ friend and former Kharkiv governor Mykhailo Dobkin told journalists the attackers had aimed at Kernes’ heart and wanted to kill him to destabilize the city. “If you want to know my opinion, they were shooting not at Kernes, but at Kharkiv,” he said. Dobkin is among several candidates running in Ukraine’s May 25 presidential election, which the interim government says Russia is trying to derail. Kernes was a staunch opponent of the pro-West Maidan movement that toppled President Viktor Yanukovych in February and was widely viewed as the organizer who sent activists from eastern Ukraine to harass demonstrators in Kiev. But he has softened his stance toward the new Kiev government. At a meeting of eastern Ukrainian leaders and acting Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk earlier this month, Kernes insisted he does not support the armed pro-Russia insurgents and backed a united Ukraine. Kharkiv is in eastern Ukraine, where pro-Russia gunmen have seized government buildings and police stations and set up roadblocks. But unlike the neighboring Donetsk region, Kharkiv had been largely unaffected by the insurgency — something Kernes has been credited with. Its administration building was briefly seized earlier this month but promptly cleared of pro-Russia protesters. The Russian Foreign Ministry said the attack on Kernes, along with other events, “indicates that it isn’t possible to speak of any ‘peaceful’ pre-election campaign in Ukraine.” Elsewhere in the east, pro-Russia militants wearing masks gained another foothold, seizing a city hall building and police station in the city of Kostyantynivka, 160 kilometers (100 miles) from the Russian border. The city is 35 kilometers (22 miles) south of Slovyansk, a major city that has been in the hands of insurgents for more than three weeks. After the seizure, about 15 armed men guarded the city hall building. Some posed for pictures with residents while others distributed Ribbons of St. George, the symbol of the pro-Russia movement.

Moscow has repeatedly pushed for a referendum on federal autonomy in Ukraine, but Kiev and its Western allies have refused, accusing Russia of fomenting separatist sentiment to foil the May presidential vote. However, Justice Minister Petro Petrenko said the parliament in Kiev will hold a debate Tuesday on the idea of a referendum, Interfax news agency reported.

The Independent Student Voice of UNM since 1895

Opinion Editor/ John Tyczkowski/ @JCTyczkowski

Dr. Peg’s Prescription Washing hands and developing clean habits can ward off life-altering infections It was the summer of Joseph Paz’s sixteenth year. As a high school junior in Las Cruces, his days were filled with basketball and track. He and his friends dreamed of becoming worldclass athletes. Joseph was a good runner — good enough that a college scholarship was a distinct possibility. Life was good, the future bright. One morning he woke up with pain in his right leg. Initially he shrugged it off, but it steadily got worse, until by the end of the day he could hardly walk. He started to feel sick. He developed a fever. He went home and called his aunt, who happened to also be his doctor. She evaluated him and sent him for an ultrasound of his leg, on the off chance he could have a blood clot, a rare finding in a young man. In the middle of the scan, the tech left the room to call Joseph’s aunt with the bad news that he indeed had a clot all the way down his leg. Things quickly went from bad to worse. Joseph was admitted to the hospital, where doctors determined that he had a blood infection which had caused the clot. The infection had already settled in the aortic valve in his heart. Initially unable to isolate the infecting organism from his blood, they finally found it by aspirating fluid from his knee joint. It was Methicillinresistant Staphylococcus aureus, or MRSA. Staphylococcus aureus means

OurUNM event about facts, not prejudice Editor, It is great to read that Emily Larsen supports the decrease of student fees and tuition and that her interest in civic engagement at UNM was amplified through the OurUNM event last Wednesday. These types of reactions were a goal of the movement. However, we want to make things very clear for the UNM body and the Albuquerque community about the actual events that took place throughout the rally and march. We do not appreciate being

“golden cluster of seeds” in Greek, because that’s what it looks like under a microscope. Staphylococcus, or “staph,” is a common sort of bacterium. One in three of us carries some kind of staph in our noses, unbeknownst to us; a benign ride-along. Some kinds of staph cause food poisoning, others cause skin infections. Most kinds of staph are readily killed by common antibiotics. MRSA is named for its ability to resist antibiotics: first penicillin, then a derivative, methicillin. MRSA got its power from merging with a virus, which helped it produce a chemical weapon that deactivates some antibiotics. The Centers for Disease Control estimates that 2 percent of Americans carry MRSA all the time, without knowing it or being bothered by it. But when it decides to cause trouble, it can be serious. The CDC estimated that more than 94,000 people suffered a serious MRSA infection in 2005, and more than 18,000 died. Fortunately, the incidence of invasive MRSA infections is declining. Most MRSA infections we see at SHAC are local skin abscesses, which we treat with drainage and antibiotics. Experiences like Joseph’s are mercifully rare, but deadly serious. Where did Joseph contract MRSA? He will never know exactly. He had been troubled by an infected ingrown toenail. It could have been that. One of his teammates had recurrent skin

boils. It could have been that. “We were constantly sharing things — towels, socks, clothes. I never thought twice about it.” He thinks differently now, as you will see. MRSA can be spread through shared items, and a cut or break in the skin makes it easy for it to take hold. An infected heart valve will disintegrate, and you can’t live with a disintegrated heart. Joseph was taken to the operating room and his infected valve was replaced with an artificial valve. But the infection was too entrenched. It spread to two other valves in his heart, and into the bones of his leg. The antibiotics he was getting in his IV couldn’t reach deep enough. He needed more surgery. Joseph was transferred to Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston, and his family gathered around him. He underwent operations to remove infected bone from his leg. The doctors took him back for a second open heart surgery. The aortic valve was replaced again, and two other valves were cleared of infection and reconstructed. He spent weeks in intensive care. It was touch-and-go. Twice the priest was called to give him Last Rites. Joseph survived. He lay in his hospital bed for weeks, too feeble to sit up. He had lost 30 pounds, and he was a slim runner to begin with. His rebuilt heart slowly recovered. The doctors told him his leg wouldn’t

tolerate competitive running. He felt fragile and depressed. There were some very dark days. Thankfully, Joseph is made of strong stuff. His family values perseverance and is filled with living examples. One of his doctors shared her own story of battling cancer at his age, and how she came through it. All of this helped, but it was his own inner fortitude that made the difference. Joseph reached a point of determination. He realized he could either stay down or rise up. He decided to rise up. “I didn’t want that experience to define me,” Joseph told me. He got out of the hospital, went home and finished high school. Not only did he finish, he did it on time with his peers and with a 4.0 average. He was accepted at UNM and came north. Having gone through what he did, it would be understandable if Joseph chose to live in a bubble, or at least alone. But no — he wanted the whole college experience. He lives in a dorm with three roommates. He did make it clear that he would not be sharing towels or anything else, and who could blame him? “I’m not a germophobe,” he told me, “but I do take precautions.” In the first years after his brush with death, he didn’t want to even think about MRSA, much less talk about it. But time and distance have brought perspective, and now he

Letter generalized as racists and full of hate when the event was inclusive of people of all backgrounds, education levels, races, ages, genders, majors, religions and so on and so forth. The whole event was completely peaceful and respectful. As an example, we were silent while marching through the SUB to respect the Nizhoni Days event that was occurring at the same time. We did, in fact, lead a chant that stated “Education is a right, not just for the rich and white,” and we feel that we have the facts, provided by UNM itself, to back up this statement. In fact, the person who composed this chant was a white female. It is extremely clear that the system

in place and the changes to scholarships, classes, tuition and other components of education are biased to benefit white, privileged students and ignore the educational access and needs of underrepresented populations, including poor whites. OurUNM is seeking to address all issues that affect students, staff, faculty and community members, and all are welcome to join us. The issue of racism affects students, faculty, staff and community members at UNM, and we are simply stating the facts that there are groups of students on campus that benefit the most while everyone else is ignored. But our major points are about UNM creating accountability, inclusion and

transparency. We disagree with Emily Larsen’s point about what will bring about a “peaceful society;” rather, we believe that we will have a peaceful society when institutionalized racism is abolished. OurUNM Letter submission policy

wants to educate others. His basic message is simple, but powerful: “Be conscious of decisions you make on a daily basis. Don’t share clothes, towels, razors or anything else that gets close to your skin. Take care of your skin; it’s your numberone defense. Wash and sanitize your hands and stay clean.” It’s good advice, and will help protect you from MRSA and other germs. Joseph has arthritis in the knee from his surgery. He doesn’t run competitively anymore, but he does swim and ride a bicycle. The recipient of the 2013 Raymond E. Plotkin scholarship, he is majoring in chemical engineering and hopes to eventually work in a biomedical field. His rebuilt heart is working great. He only sees doctors about once a year now. “I can’t say that most days I don’t wish it hadn’t happened, but it has changed my outlook on how I live. I appreciate each day now,” Joseph told me. Thank you, Joseph Paz, for sharing your important message and your inspiring story. I know your experience will help others. I wish you well.

Frida Salazar / Daily Lobo New Mexico basketball player Brea Mitchell gives Ashlee Smalley a ride for a lap during the UNM Relay for Life on Johnson Field Friday afternoon. The overnight event, of which Smalley was the logistics director, was held to support the fight against cancer, with participants circling the track for twelve hours.

by Tomas Lujan

@TomasVLujan Students marched around Johnson field all night Friday to raise money for cancer research. Relay for Life is an overnight event meant to emphasize that cancer never sleeps. Participants circled the field for 12 hours to simulate the exhausting process of enduring cancer’s “road to recovery.” Meghan Maes, a senior in psychology and event chair for the relay, said the event commemorates the many lives lost to the struggle against cancer. “The number-one way we can fight back against cancer is by getting grants to continue research,” Maes said. This year is Maes’s second for being in charge of the student chapter of the American Cancer Society. Last year the organization raised $20,000 dollars, doubling the amount raised in 2012. This year, she said, their goal is to reach $25,000. “Cancer is relentless, and the only way we can beat it is by giving it more than it can take,” she said. Mariah Galvez, a senior in the nursing program, said she has been involved with the event for three

years. A cancer survivor herself, Galvez said she walks for the people in her life that have also been affected by the disease. “Fighting cancer is the reason I am going into nursing,” she said. “Just the hope of ending cancer is worth fighting for.” Galvez said the program signed more than 20 local sponsors and nearly 300 participants. Alexa Chavez, a member of the women’s basketball team, said she participated to support those who are fighting against cancer. Chavez said she and a number of players on the women’s basketball team offered piggyback laps in exchange for donations, with all proceeds benefitting the fundraiser. “It’s for a really good cause. A lot of us have family members, even parents, who have suffered from cancer,” she said. “Just being out here and being able to support the people from Albuquerque is such a great feeling.” Deanna Salazar also participated in the relay along with members of Phi Eta Sigma. “I am so glad to be a part of Phi Eta Sigma supporting Relay For Life,” she said. ”It’s a great way to bring awareness to the UNM campus.”


Play straddles line of art, nonsense by Graham Gentz When you walk out of “Night and Day,” you’re going to be asking yourself, “What the hell did I just watch?” But the real question is whether or not that’s a good thing. It’s good to be challenged. It’s good to be uncomfortable and accosted by art. The bad thing is that art can also be pretentious bullshit. “Night and Day” can be colorlessly described as “dance theatre.” This play is about 95 percent dance and 5 percent theatre — or, if you prefer, “talking.” For the full 80 minutes or so of the first act, you’re bombarded with what boils down to nonsensical babble. You’re treated to a lounge singer summarizing about five interrelated Greek myths. Then two logs are removed from briefcases and smacked lackadaisically with axes, to a background of people talking

about eating. Later, a naked eating orgy. We then move on to demonic war stories and a suited man talking about human history, a woman in a spider-heart-cage wheeled on stage while talking about Greek mythology, sky booze descending from the ceiling only to be drank and spat violently like an alcoholic SeaWorld, which turns into white people meticulously moshing. Then we see men stomping chairs to the silliest band in the world, Rammstein, and, of course, a man in bondage gear cavorting about while singing “O Fortuna” in a shrill falsetto. It was actually more fun writing down these quick descriptions of everything as a means to remember it all. There is so much of it that while it can be engrossing, sometimes annoying ideas and images, much of it evaporates from my short-term memory upon the show’s completion.

Gathering empowers visitors by Mariam Ajala @M_A_Reports Thousands of Native Americans traveled great distances to celebrate and preserve their various cultures at last weekend’s Gathering of Nations. Almost 3,000 Native Americans attended the event, representing more than 700 tribes reaching from Canada to the southern United States. Isaiah Stewart, a fine arts major at the University of Kansas, said he applies his culture to modern life and his artwork to keep the traditions of his heritage alive. “I kind of apply it and rock with it … I adopt and transfer things from my culture, like in my artwork I tell stories through modern day things,” Stewart said. The gathering brought many people together from across the U.S. Stewart said he was able to reunite with old family friends at the event. “There’s a man who took me around when I was younger — he’s a little bit older now, but I just remember those special times when I was little and maybe my dad was busy doing something so he would take me around powwows and teach me the ways,” he said. Nathan Chasing Horse said he appreciates the gathering as a way of preserving his culture. He said the PowWow is something that everyone in the western

It’s like the run-on sentence of a junkie describing a fever dream. A little of this kind of theatre goes a long way, but here it’s just too damn much stimulation: too many ideas and images, all at a lightning-fast pace. But there is no time to catch your breath, to digest or make connections, of which there are desperately few. For the most part, it seems overindulgent. The second act is considerably more coherent, presenting a strong visual theme of a changing monochromic light that engulfs the stage, arranged with motifs of a bouquet of pastoral kindness. Specificity is what is being created here. The chorus cast of sixteen actors zoom on and off stage by the second, packing the space with many simultaneous actions and intentions.
