APD Public Comment

After weeks of protests — sparked largely by the shooting of a mentally ill homeless man caught camping illegally in the foothills — the Albuquerque City Council dedicated its regular meeting Monday to public testimony and discussion of the Albuquerque Police Department. The unprecedented meeting and turnout came as the U.S. Department of Justice wrapped up its 16-month investigation into whether Albuquerque police have a pattern or practice of violating people’s civil rights through the use of excessive force.
