Considering that Albuquerque Police Chief Ray Schultz refuses to comment on last week’s arrest of a news videographer until an Independent Review Panel has seen the video, we should make it our civic duty to help the chief decide the fate of the arresting officer.

Thankfully, KOB-TV investigative reporter Jeremy Jojola has set up a poll on his blog titled “What should happen to Officer Guzman?” with the following choices.

  • Written Warning
  • Suspension Without Pay
  • Termination
  • Nothing

Jojola will keep the poll up for the next six days. Afterwards, in case Chief Schultz has not seen the results, I will personally email him the final tally.

And hopefully by then, Schultz will have had enough independent advisement that would enable him to make the right decision.
