Who is Peter and why did Sen. Candelaria scream at him?

--Now those of you who are “woke” might find it offensive that Candelaria, without knowing or meeting the person on the phone, is saying that it’s a white guy.


--So, the next time you call Senator Candelaria’s office be sure to tell them your race and gender and anything else you think the good senator might make an assumption about.


--Who is Peter? Why is Peter allowing Candelaria to curse and shout at him on the phone? I think Peter needs a public apology. I mean who wants an abusive, threatening person calling you on the phone?


--Do we need to send police to Peter’s house to take a report about Candelaria’s disorderly conduct when he called him?



If you are easily offended, please keep reading.

The folks at Fire and Police Video YouTube Channel have posted a twenty-minute video that has New Mexico State Senator Jacob Candelaria 911 calls and subsequent police body camera video. In this video you will find racism, drug use (legal) and well something just so freaky weird that it’s hilarious.

The beginning has a relatively calm Jacob Candelaria calling police dispatch to let them know that someone left a threatening phone message for him.



Dispatcher, “was it a male or female?”

Candelaria, “A male, sounds like a white male. Pretty,,, yeah it’s a white male.”


Now those of you who are “woke” might find it offensive that Candelaria, without knowing or meeting the person on the phone, is saying that it’s a white guy. I know, we should be brought up not to jump to conclusions like that, but come on, Candelaria knows a white male hater's voice when he hears one. Haven’t we all been there? Someone calls that you don’t know and after they start speaking you immediately say to yourself, “Yep that’s a black guy” or “Why is this Asian calling me?” or “Definitely a Mexican” or “Gay dude on the phone.” Don’t lie to yourself, we have all done it, it’s just now being done by a gay, Hispanic state senator (you will hear Candelaria tell the cops this over and over), who later in this video falsely accuses police officers for not taking him seriously because he is a gay man. Ironic huh.

Hmmmm I wonder if the 911 operator who was speaking to Candelaria was thinking to herself, “This is a gay Hispanic dude.”

So, the next time you call Senator Candelaria’s office be sure to tell them your race and gender and anything else you think the good senator might make an assumption about. Better you tell him than leaving it up to his ability to figure it out without seeing you.

Seriously speaking, aren’t we tired of this racist, homophobic, you name it, I am a victim of it, mentality? And now we have the wanna be victims, victimizing others. The world is insane.

After some quick deep breathing exercises with the 911 operator Candelaria hangs up. Soon thereafter Candelaria gets a phone call from an APD officer and the world seems right, for a while. Well thirteen hours to be exact.

Thirteen hours later Candelaria goes goofy. Her's a transcript from the state police body cameras:

Candelaria: unintelligible “send an officer over to Senator Candelaria’s house right now, you protect a member of the goddamn senate! All right we have the state police officer here now. All right so call the governor or whoever, but the governor should have gotten on the fucking phone and called the state police chief at two in the morning and you tell the governor that. That anything short of that is ridiculous and that is why I have told the press and if they have a problem with that well then, they can go fuck themselves. Okay? Thank you, Peter.”

A lot has already been said about Candelaria’s demeanor with the NMSP officers, I won’t rehash it here. Candelaria issued a sorta apology. What I would like to know is who is Peter? Why is Peter allowing Candelaria to curse and shout at him on the phone? I think Peter needs a public apology. I mean who wants an abusive, threatening person calling you on the phone? Oh wait, that is what started all of this to begin with. Do we need to send police to Peter’s house to take a report about Candelaria’s disorderly conduct when he called him? Will someone please ask Senate Majority leader Peter Wirth if he is OK. And since so much anger was directed at Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham, I think we need to check on her too. Whew, this is getting complicated with who is threatening who, or is it whom. Crap I don’t know. And if Peter calls to make a complaint will he tell the dispatcher that he is pretty sure it is a “gay man” who threatened him and the governor? Just saying.

At this time Candelaria was clearly agitated and angry. He very quickly kicks the police officers out of his residence. What happened to Candelaria during the 13 hours from talking to 911 and APD to now? I think Mary Jane holds the answer.

NMSP officer 1: “Anyone else high?”

NMSP officer 2: “Almost got high dude?”

NMSP officer 1: “I did too.”

Candelaria told the Santa Fe New Mexican in a September 29, 2020, interview that he is a medical marijuana patient.

The NMSP officers seem to be saying that there was a smoky haze, hanging over their meeting with Candelaria. Could that cloud be marijuana? I believe marijuana should be legalized but I also believe you should use the right type. I can only assume that Candelaria might have been smoking / eating Red Headed Stranger, an energizing blend named after that wonderfully famous pot smoker, Willie Nelson. Candelaria should switch to a more calming blend such as, Gorilla Glue #4, which is advertised (thespot420.com) as “delivers a heavy-handed euphoria and relaxation, leaving you feeling glued to the couch”. I don’t know any of this for a fact, it’s just what I watched and read,,,,,,,,,, (hold it, now exhale).

Now we come to the most disturbing part of this video. A part of the video that I wished I would have smoked Gorilla Glue #4 before watching it. Something so horrible, so heinous, that I had temporary blindness and I had to sit in a dark room for hours to clear this image out of my head.

Only if you dare, go to 17:54 minutes of this video. Careful, it’s only for the brave. If you have mental issues after watching it. I am not to blame. You have been warned.

17:54 an APD officer, working from home, is interviewing the suspect (sounds like a white guy to me) on the phone. The officer correctly has turned on his body camera so he can record the phone call. What I did not expect to see was the officer parading around with his pants undone. The officer seems to relish in disturbing the viewer as he points the body camera toward his crotch while he struts around like a cock rooster. What is clearly visible to all is his blue Fruit of the Loom (yes you can read the stitching) undies. There is a lot to “digest” with this but let me just toss out (along with my lunch) some thoughts.

First, thank god he wasn’t going commando. No really, THANK YOU GOD! (this from an atheist).

Second, thank god he wasn’t wearing women’s underwear.

Third, pretty cool that the officer was wearing blue underwear. This guy breathes cop.

Fourth, is that a pistol or is he just happy to be working?

Five, thank god he wasn’t sitting on the toilet.

Six, working from home is still dangerous, to everyone!

Seven, when will I get my vision back?

I would ask Interim Chief Medina about this, but he will just accuse retired Chief Geier of making him and other officers’ parade around in their underwear. Now that Medina is chief all that will change. Ho hum.

It’s 2020 and Albuquerque is just as insane as the rest of the world. Go buy Gorilla Glue #4 and relax.
