Homicide no. 98

By Dan Klein


Homicide Update, August 29, 2021


Child mayor, Tim Keller, has Priorities, you aren’t one of them.

The number of homicide victims in Albuquerque continues to grow, as of today

ABQREPORT counts a total of 98 homicides within the city limits of Albuquerque.

(The list is at the bottom of this column).

This week Albuquerque registered two more homicides, a man was found shot to

death in the 400 block of Texas Ne and another man was found shot to death in his

apartment off 500 Tennessee Ne.

The homicide on Tennessee is extremely concerning as it appears that an entire

apartment complex was targeted with dozens of bullets penetrating the walls.


Here is a picture of the apartment complex, I count at least 35 bullet holes.




What are the priorities of our boy mayor doing while his city is turned into a war zone? This

was his tweet hours before the rampage on Tennessee.


Look, I know that Keller deserves some down time, but he has shown a complete detachment

from the reality that the rest of us in Albuquerque live in. Albuquerque is in such a violent crime

crisis now that Keller should sacrifice his time going to heavy metal concerts and instead ride

with an APD officer in the Southeast area on swing shift or graveyard for a few hours. He needs

to see firsthand the slaughter of citizens that is happening in his city, on his watch.


Tim Keller’s priorities are not the priorities of Albuquerque citizens. Keller seems to believe that if he ignores the crime tsunami, then it doesn’t exist. No wonder the families of the Albuquerque police officers that were shot ten days ago refused to meet with him. They know firsthand what Keller doesn’t want to acknowledge, Albuquerque is a dangerous city and instead

of going to heavy metal concerts, Keller should try to focus on protecting us.
