Is the New Mexico State Police Chief a liar? Chief Pete Kassetas lashed out at a critic of Mayor Berry's plan to rehire police officers who retired and let them keep their pensions during a legislative committee hearing. He said his department was not fully staffed. But this letter says otherwise just a few months ago, and he had graduated a new academy class since then. Apparently someone is not truthful here and could it be a GOP mandated lie to help a republican Mayor Berry get his legislation passed? And, is this all an effort to weaken the Public Employees Retirement Association permanent fund so that future legislators can try and gut public employee pensions?
