There's some crazy stuff happening in the US. Mass murders, gun control, the mentally ill!

4 Crime Stoppers the early days (episode four)–From Canada to Albuquerque

1/23/2019
I didn’t always live in New Mexico. In fact, I was born in Canada. My dad was the senior armaments officer for the Royal Canadian Air Force. We moved throughout Canada according to his postings and the projects he was working on at the time. He was a brilliant guy with only a high school education but was as sharp as a razor. I was very lucky to have had a great dad who was not only highly intellectual but was always present in my childhood and was there for me when I needed him. It was my...

The Federal Bar was...

2 Crime Stoppers the early days (episode two) – Autos, Hits & Heroin

The proximity of New Mexico to the Mexican border has always meant a steady stream of drugs and illicit trade passing through its largest city, Albuquerque. An example of the border’s impact on crime was the epidemic of stolen motor vehicles back in the 1970’s. A car could be stolen at 9am in the morning and before the owner left work that evening and discovered their car missing, it would have already crossed the Mexican border. Often these stolen vehicles would be exchanged for drugs or...

1 Crime Stoppers the early days (episode one) – New Mexico, Drugs and the Flying Swordsman

1/21/2019
The city of Albuquerque has always been in a state of flux. Back in the 70’s lots of drugs were coming up from Mexico adding to the despondency of residents and law enforcement agencies. This was exacerbated with interstate corridors I-40 and I-25 funnelling a transiency of people moving east or west through Texas, California and Arizona or northward from Mexico. In decades past, this migration often saw people run out of money in Albuquerque. This would in turn feed the city's predominance...
