Fired, seems to have been retaliative.  Excerpt by Warner Todd Huston 03/30/2014: Chief Harger attended the Las Vegas gathering of the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association (CSPOA) to hear what the group had to say about its goals. Harger says he’d never attended such an event in the past and until the Vegas event was not a member of the group.  On the way to the CSPOA event, though, the chief suddenly found that his name had been placed on some sort of watchlist by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and he was harassed by TSA agents as he tried to board his plane. Harger reported that when he got to the airport a man who briefly flashed a badge and claimed to be a “federal agent” (from what agency he would not say) informed the police chief that he was a “person of interest” and that he had to be detained. http://www.publiusforum.com/category/states/new-mexico/ Excerpt Abq  Journal 09/2015:  ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — The rape case against former Jemez Police Chief Shane Harger has been dismissed, but a special prosecutor plans to refile charges.  The effort to dismiss the case reveals details of the January 2013 night Harger is accused of raping a 19-year-old Los Alamos woman traveling through his jurisdiction in Jemez.  The dismissing court documents also show mistakes made by the 13th District Court prosecutors in pursuing the August 2014 indictment of Harger.  Before being charged in the rape case, Harger had a role in a web of at least three law enforcement scandals, earning him a spot as a darling among anti-federal government groups who say the federal government is targeting him for participating in a meeting of sheriff’s who vow to strictly follow the federal constitution and who oppose federal overreach.Harger was charged with criminal sexual contact and penetration, kidnapping and extortion, but little detail was initially released about what prompted the charges.  But details of the night were made public in court filing by Harger’s defense attorneys Ray Twohig and Lisa Torraco.  They show prosecutors allege Harger was using a confidential drug informant who told him a vehicle heading into his village of Jemez had heroin in it.  Harger and one other officer stopped the vehicle after they said it was speeding and brought all four occupants out at gunpoint. The documents say Harger eventually found a very small amount of heroin in the vehicle.  A woman in the vehicle later told investigators that Harger said because there were no female officers on the Jemez force available, he would have to search her.  He took her into the Jemez police office, had her privately strip down in the bathroom, cough several times and then redress.  He then looked for items on the bathroom floor before returning her to the scene of the arrest. https://www.abqjournal.com/651228/details-emerge-in-police-chief-rape-case.html Excerpt from Taos News: Former Taos Police Dept. officer charged with rape.  A former Taos Police Department officer who left the agency following numerous allegations of misconduct was arrested Thursday (Aug. 7) on charges of raping a 19-year-old woman in Sandoval County. http://www.taosnews.com/stories/former-taos-police-dept-officer-charged-with-rape,36677 Excerpt from Publius Forum:  New Mexico Police Chief Fired Likely Because He Attended Constitutional Rights Gathering http://www.publiusforum.com/2014/03/30/new-mexico-police-chief-fired-likely-attended-constitutional-rights-gathering/ https://sonoranorte.wordpress.com/2014/03/20/corruption-drug-running-murder-and-a-fired-police-chief/ http://deadlinelive.info/2014/02/02/tsa-harasses-police-chief-placed-on-administrative-leave-told-to-disband-entire-police- department/ Hearn, John.  Albuquerque. ALBQ OFC UNDR-APD 9/81: APD undercover officers, John Hearn and Greg Avila, were working a suspected vehicle theft ring when they got into a shootout with one of the suspects, Frank Minott.  Minott testified that he shot at Officer Avila in self-defense after Avila fired at him…Then Hearn got involved, and Minott said he feared that Hearn would hold him down while Avila cut him, so he ran to the house and Avila fired a gun at him.  Minott got to a gun and fired back at Avila, wounding him twice.

Associated with killing Peter Klunck a likely whistleblower of APD abuses.  Excerpt from Kaitarquette:   Peter Klunk did off-the-books body work at the chop shop on Arno where the VW Bug sought to take refuge after Kait was shot.  APD Officer Matt Griffin was one of the rogue cops who hung out at that chop shop.  In January 1989, (six months before Kait’s murder), Peter was shot by three members of the APD ROP Team – Robert Valtierra, Paul Heatley, and Matt Griffin  -- on the day he was scheduled to appear in court and had told people he was planning to “blow the lid off APD.” http://kaitarquette.arquettes.com/corruption%20overview.htm Hernandez, first name? (2013) Deming. Officer.  Probing incident in connection with David Eckert case. Huffington Post Herrera, Leon.  (2015)  Springer. Police Chief.  Excerpt Abq Journal:  Ex-Springer chief Leon Herrera, in his plea agreement Thursday, acknowledged that he pretended to be a federal Drug Enforcement Administration officer to help deputy Vidal Sandoval persuade the faux drug couriers to hand over money from their car.  “At that time, I knew that my false statements and misrepresentations… served the purpose of assisting Sandoval in stealing the money in the vehicle,” Herrera states in his plea document filed in Albuquerque federal court. Herrera pleaded guilty to impersonating a federal officer and was released. He faces up to three years in prison. https://www.abqjournal.com/661096/ex-springer-police-chief-pleads-guilty-to-helping-deputy-steal-from-officers-posing-as-drug- couriers.html Howard, Sara (2017) Farmington. San Juan County Sheriff’s Deputy.  Excerpt from KOB 09/15/2017: State Police Chief Pete Kassetas identified the two officers who shot and killed suspect William Wilson as NMSP Officer Dwayne Simpson and San Juan Sheriff's Deputy Sara Howard.  The officers shot Wilson, 26, after they said Wilson pulled a gun out of his waistband and started firing at them as the officers tried to arrest him during a traffic stop. Body camera video of the shooting won't be released until the investigation is finished. http://www.kob.com/new-mexico-news/farmington-officer-involved-shooting-william-wilson/4604493/ Huerta, Raul.  (2012)  Socorro.  Excerpt:  Raul Huerta-communications shift supervisor, arrested for alleged delivery of marijuana greater than 5 pounds but under or equal to 50 pounds http://www.kvia.com/news/names-of-socorro-police-officers-arrested-have-been-released/55619331  `
