  • Three oversight members resign

    The Associated Press
    ALBUQUERQUE, — Half of the members of Albuquerque’s Police Oversight Commission have resigned, citing a lack of independence and inability to provide any real citizen oversight of the troubled department.
    The resignations Tuesday by three members of the civilian review board come less than a week after the U.S. Justice Department issued a scathing report on what it called excessive force and a culture of abuse and aggression at the Police Department. Albuquerque officers have shot at 37 men since 2010, killing 23.
