Homicide no. 35

Well that didn’t last long, Albuquerque murders continue to rise to record levels.

Just one day after we reported on the 34 homicide in Albuquerque in 2021, we have our 35 homicide. APD is reporting they found a man dead of gunshot wounds in the Ladera neighborhood on the Westside.

APD also charged the two mothers involved in the horrific DUI a couple days ago, with two counts of Abandonment of a Child resulting in Death. If you remember these were the two drunk mothers who loaded their small children in to their car at 4:30 am and proceeded to speed down I-40 and crash into the overpass going onto I-25, killing a one year old child and 7 year old child.

Their acts caused the death of two small children, therefor matching our definition of homicide. Since they are being charged under the child abuse statutes, that also matches our definition of murder. So now we have 37. I refuse to play semantics with the homicide of these two children. The mother’s actions caused their deaths and therefore are homicides by definition.

Thirty-seven murders for the year, four are considered justified although there is no independent review of the police investigation except for the officer involved death. Plus we have two children who through the actions of their mothers are also dead.

And the weekend has just started.

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.
