We are visiting friends in Montana and we were looking at some New Mexico websites together and found out that APD is buying 350 new assault rifles. Our friends who follow things closely in ABQ said they thought this was a flip off to the citizens from the old time culture at APD. Essentially, they are saying nothing has changed here and there is nothing you can do about it. They may be right, or it just might be one more indication of the sheer incompetence of the leadership of APD. Given everything that is going on, was now a good time to be buying these military weapons? Are they listening at all to their new PR person? Or was Janet Blair blindsided by this as well?
