Crime is out of control

If you feel that crime is out of control in Albuquerque, you're not alone. On March 24, the Albuquerque Journal published a column in which its readers shared their crime horror stories. The column by Editorial Page Editor D'Val Westphal is sad and disgusting in that so many city residents have been crime victims.



The piece ends with a reader saying everyone is frustrated by the unending crime wave, and Westphal asking, "Is City Hall Getting that?"

It's a great column. Here it is. Please read it.

Independent Journalism

I've been a reporter, writer and editor for 37 years. I'm dedicated to honest, fair and hard-hitting reporting. I'm not conservative or liberal, but am just a reporter who tries to get to the truth at any given point in time. I don't believe in pulling punches or being a lap dog because that serves no one. A free and aggressive press is essential to human liberty. That's why the Founding Fathers put a free press in the Constitution. So on this site you'll get a variety of news, fearless opinion, analysis, humor, satire and commentary. It's kind of like a free-for-all. My motto is "Without fear and without favor."  But good journalism takes time and money, so I hope you will contribute what you can to these efforts by clicking on the "Donate" button above. I could use your help. Thanks, Dennis Domrzalski.
