The following was an editorial in todays edition of the Albuquerque Journal. Ray Schultz, who is the Police Chief here in the City of Albuquerque and took over at a very bad point in the history of the department. He has done a good job of cleaning up the department and getting it back on track.

Now a lot of time, most bosses seem to be just worthless. I for one am lucky to have a boss who knows what he is going and is just an overall great guy. Same with Ray Schultz.

    Albuquerque Police Chief Ray Schultz left the office Tuesday, but he didn't stop working.

    When a report of two men beating an elderly man at Sixth and Tijeras NE crackled over the car radio, Schultz figured he was the closest officer and responded. He cornered two suspects in the Downtown library and ended up making two arrests.

    Colorado fugitive Gary William Sparks has felony warrants for burglary and failing to appear in court on a drug possession charge. Anthony Pacheco failed to appear in court in Bernalillo County.

    While Schultz was getting ready to pull out his cuffs, other officers who heard the chief was taking a call showed up. Many folks question if their boss could do their job; APD officers got a front-row seat as the chief demonstrated.

    After library patrons stopped, waved and said "hello, Chief," Schultz says Sparks told him "this place sucks. I have been here for an hour, and I get busted by the chief. I am never coming here again."

    Good. Let's hope he also tells his friends.

It is just another reason why I love Police Chief Ray Schultz (in the non-sexual way) and what he has done not only with the department, but also with the city. He does not just put his time in the office, he also goes out and works a beat too. He does what any other officer in the department does in addition to being cheif of police.

I for one hope too that these two low-life fugitives tell all their friends about how great our police and the police chief are and that they stay away from our great city.

The story sounds really funny, I went over to the paper I couldn't find the story :(

"this place sucks. I have been here for an hour, and I get busted by the chief. I am never coming here again."

I like that line. :)

The Albuquerque Journal's website sucks. The whole city knows that, but for some strange reason, the Journal keeps making it suck even more. Just when you thought it could not suck anymore, there it is.

As for finding the story, I had to look under the site map (which I can not even remember were that is) and then go look under editorials. Also, a good chunk of the site is password protected and you need an account to get at it (Which I never got why they do that).

But yes, it was a good story, and I love it!
