Police State

Susana Martinez wants the State Police given political powers to go after alleged ethics violations. Alleged by who?   This fits right in with Mayor Berry's Chief Public Safety officer being openly involved in supporting partisan candidates in the general election.  Darren White has been in Martinez's TV commercials and was shown yesterday on this blog with GOP congressional candidate John Barela during his workday with the city.  Do we really want the State Police going on political wild goose chases after a call from the Governor's office or a powerful legislator?  Any Governor's office whether they are republican or democrat?  If you follow Martinez's thought process she might think it would be a good idea to have the U.S. Army investigating the President and Congress on a regular basis.  And now we see the FBI may be allowed to look at your email in the name of ferreting out 'terrorists.'  This from the Obama administration.  What a shame.

Wouldn't it be better to have a Commission with bipartisan members deciding which cases are worthy of investigation?  And wouldn't it just be better if Mayor Berry prohibits his chief law enforcement officer from being involved in partisan politics?  If he doesn't then there will be major embarrassments or litigation in his future.  He doesn't deserve this.  He needs to put a collar on White.
