(1980s) Albuquerque.  Officer. From Real Crimes: (Later became APD Police Chief.)   “The APD Intelligence Unit, under the supervision of Sgt. Joseph Polisar, was accused of illegally creating and maintaining secret dossiers on innocent political figures.  The only possible use for such dossiers would be to exert influence and pressure on those politicians. When the existence of the dossiers became known, they were burned to prevent their inspection.  Sgt. Polisar was subsequently elevated to Chief of Police” 10/1/87: Former Chief Justice William Riordan, the City’s first independent councilor, found that the APD Intelligence Unit, under the supervision of APD Sgt. Joseph Polisar, had been secretly stockpiling information on local residents not suspected of wrong doing.  (The Unit was supposed to be gathering intelligence on motorcycle gangs, organized crime, terrorists and other criminal activity.) …7/5/94: APD Joseph Polisar, (supervisor of the APD Intelligence Unit when police burned the controversial Intelligence Files), was appointed Police Chief.   Real Crimes: http://www.realcrimes.com/Corruption_Overview.htm  See also Kaitarquette Porter, Rodney. (2005)  Hobbs. Excerpt from Brown Watch:  Arresting Officer has a History of Police Brutality Claims Against him (01/03/2005) One of the arresting officers, Detective Rodney Porter is no stranger to police brutality or racial discrimination claims. On August 24, 2004 a court awarded Jimmie Marshall, a 58 year old Black man $580,000 for police brutality claims he brought against Porter and the  City of Hobbs. Specifically, Porter took a blood sample from him without his permission and without a warrant following a Dec. 26, 1996, traffic stop. Marshall claimed Porter only tried to stop him after determining Marshall was black and then used a racial slur during the arrest -- a claim Porter denied. The jury awarded Marshall $390,000 in compensatory and punitive damages for Porter's actions (the remainder was for the liability of another officer's actions).[more]http://brownwatch.squarespace.com/police-brutality-watch/2005/1/3/hobbs-police-beat-down-another-black- man-cop-with-racist-brutality-past-is-the-arresting-officer.html UPDATES Updates: 01/31/2018 Robinson, Vasshawn OFC-HOB discrimination lawsuit;  01/21/2018 Warman, Brandt-TAOS added; 01/16/2018 Wilson, Oliver added Santa Fe New Mexican 2014/04/30; 01/20/2018-Vigil, Robert-TAOS added; 01/15/2018 Wilson, Oliver NMSP SNTA FE  (shot J.
