NM police officer shot and killed; suspects in custody

LAS CRUCES, New Mexico -- A Hatch, New Mexico police officer died Friday evening after being shot during a traffic stop.

Officials took three suspects into custody hours earlier and said they were allegedly responsible for the officer shooting as well as a carjacking and shooting another man at a rest stop off Interstate 25 in a crime spree that triggered a massive manhunt.

The slain officer was Jose Chavez, a two-year veteran of the Hatch Police Department. Nuñez said he learned of Chavez’s death through police Chief Trey Gimler, who was with Chavez’s family at University Medical Center in El Paso.

“He told me, ‘Mayor, he didn't make it,’” Nuñez told the Sun-News shortly after 9:30 p.m. Friday.

The nearly four-hour episode started to unfold when Chavez pulled over a gray Lexus on Franklin Street at 3:41 p.m., according to Kelly Jameson, spokeswoman for the Doña Ana County Sheriff’s Office.

“During the traffic stop, a passenger who was in that vehicle reportedly exited the vehicle and fired shots at the officer,” Jameson said, adding that another officer had witnessed the shooting and called “on the radio that we had an officer down.”

The Lexus, Cox said, was coming from behind his vehicle and was “weaving around traffic.” It passed him and “came within inches of hitting me.”

[“Cox” was apparently a fellow officer at the scene of the crime with Chavez, whose full name was in a previous version, or whose first name Carlos Andres López, Steve Ramirez, Diana Alba Soular and Lucas Peerman forgot to ever provide.]

After the Lexus passed Cox’s vehicle, it went on the shoulder of the interstate and drove between a semitrailer and the traffic barrier, said Cox, who reported the vehicle to authorities after it exited the interstate.

According to Jameson, the Lexus exited I-25 at the rest stop near Radium Springs.

“The suspects abandoned the vehicle they were in and reportedly carjacked a red Chevrolet Cruze at the rest area and allegedly shot the driver of that car,” Jameson said.

The driver of Chevrolet Cruze also was transported to UMC, she said. The driver's condition is unknown.

“We know that the suspects in the red Chevrolet Cruze from the rest stop went to N.M. 185,” she said. “Deputies who were alerted to that car spotted and gave chase once again.”

Authorities were able to deflate the vehicle’s tires with “stop sticks,” Jameson said, but the driver was able to turn the vehicle into a residence in the 23000 block of N.M. 185. “The suspect was unable to control that vehicle, and it crashed into a pile of wood and came to rest,” she said.

Deputies had to [sic] “coaxed” the driver out of the vehicle, Jameson said. Deputies observed the driver was suffering from a gunshot wound to his thigh. He was taken into custody around 5 p.m. and was transported to a hospital for medical attention.

The two other suspects were captured before 7 p.m. in the 2400 block of Rincon.

No charges had been filed against the three suspects as of Friday evening. And their identities were not immediately known.

The incident triggered an intense, multiple-jurisdiction manhunt that was initiated by sheriff’s office.

“It involved every agency in Doña Ana County,” Jameson said, including federal agencies.

It was unknown Friday when the last time a Hatch police officer had been shot while on duty.

“I can tell you that the Hatch Police Department is eight officers strong. They are a very small department, a very close-knit department,” Jameson said. “I don’t know when the last time Hatch experienced an incident of this nature.”

One party wants whites to accept minority based crime--and one doesn't(as much).
My mind tends to wander when I'm running at the YMCA.I hop on a treadmill-in front of a TV that carries Foxnews,start the machine up and off I go.
Today,there was a headline of a mall shooting in NC.No details yet.Of course,in my mind--which is allowed to profile,until the Democrats outlaw THAT,I'm thinking Islam or black or Mexican.
From there,my thoughts traveled to the
election and who is in favor of this kind of violent behavior continuing.It would have to be the party that likes to import potential terrorists from Syria.

It would have to be the party that prefers to release drug dealers...because drug dealers aren't VIOLENT!
It would have to be the party that doesn't want to face the facts,when it comes to black crime,illegal/legal Mexican crime,and the potential for catastrophic Islamic crime.This party wants white America to ACCEPT the crime of minorities,as part of their plan for the future of America.

They are,of course,the Democrats.
Party of inclusion and delusion.Fantasy instead of facts.A world where blacks,as different culturally from whites as two races can be,are sprinkled into white neighborhoods with the same effect as when nuclear fallout occurred in Chenobyl or Nagasaki.Lethal.
I thought,as I ran another mile,about how illegal,deviant or other abnormal behavior is being forced on us...little by little,day by day,year by year.No consequences for any of it--condoned by the Democrats,strictly for political votes.
Ryan would like to do the same thing,so he's no better.They want us white Americans to accept this minority criminal behavior--or be painted as racist.Well I refuse.I will fight it,as I have talked about,in the past,and when it ultimately overwhelms the area I live--I will take the next "White Flight"out of town and leave Grand Rapids--another example of integration gone amok.
Accept THAT,Clinton and Obama and Holder and Lynch,and all the rest.

Better info on WZZM website.FOUR black thugs (not specified,but I'll wager a paycheck)
GRPD investigating 2 shootings, armed robbery
Mackenzie Thaden, WZZM 11:50 AM. EDT August 13, 2016

GRAND RAPIDS, MICH. - Grand Rapids police are investigating two shootings and an armed robbery they believe could be connected.

The first incident happened on College Avenue, just north of Leonard Street.

Police say an armed robbery took place just after midnight. The victim says money and other items were taken by four suspects with hand guns. The suspects were wearing hoodies and took off in a gold or light colored minivan.

About an hour later, shots were fired at Alpine Avenue and 7th Street. No one was hit, but a van matching the same description as the robbery was seen fleeing the scene.

At 2:30 a.m., someone was shot in the leg at Kensington Avenue and Oxford Street on Grand Rapids' South Side.
Police say the victim and the suspects got into a fight before the shooting. Again, the suspects in the crime were seen leaving the area in a light colored minivan.

Police are still investigating all three incidents.

Anyone with information is asked to call police or Silent Observer.

I love it when blacks get a little taste of karmic justice from one of their own. Shemar Moore, a black actor on Criminal Minds, was robbed of $61,084.00 by Keith Tisdell, another black actor who performed on the show. Nice to know the "brothas" are keeping it real with each other even when they've "moved on up" out of the hood.
I've always hated "Criminal Minds", because it, along with Law & Order, CSI, etc... has worked hard to contribute to the stereotyping of white men as the "worst" ciminals, child molesters and serial killers particularly. Criminal Minds loves to show the handsome Shemar Moore protecting white women from those evil white men, it's one of their favorite devices designed to anoint black men with the mantle of saintliness and demonize white men.
The use of Shemar Moore has always been a bit ironic in my mind, mainly because of his light skin and handsome European features that clearly show his mixed ancestry.
Note the article below has a headline about the robbery of Mr. Moore but the 2nd half of the article talks about the dismissal of the lead (white) actor on the show, Thomas Gibson, because of a conflict with a writer. Typical thing to do, make sure a negative article about blacks includes something that makes a white look back.

A knife attack in Switzerland, a place we know was such a hotbed of "random" knife attacks before Muslim immigration, the attackers apparantly has no race, no ethnicity or religion, he's described as a "Swiss citizen", which is announced immediately with such vehemence we know it's designed to steer attention away from something else, namely that it isn't a "white" Swiss citizen.

Busy night in Milwaukee as blacks,again refusing to obey the law,turned on police and their neighborhoods Saturday night.From what I read,police were chasing a black(with a long criminal history-normal)on foot,when the black thug was shot by police.Riots broke out,gas stations burned,police barricaded themselves in the 7th precinct police station and businesses were broken into and robbed.
Instead of agreeing that the black thug should not have been out committing a crime,the black mobs compound the idiocy of their race by committing MORE crimes!Isn't that the definitionof insanity?Doing the same thing,over and over again,when it yields poor results?Or stupidity....take your choice for explaining black behavior.
There were 3 shootings in GR Saturday am,by 4 black thugs.Are the police not allowed to take action against them, that stops their armed criminal activity-without fear of rioting by the lunatic black community?
Something has to be done with blacks...Trump-any ideas?Maybe you should get in the boat building business--a huge fleet of luxury liners,we can start filling with negroes,for a trip back to Africa.

Cops still kill many more citizens than citizens kill cops. There is no war on cops. There is a war on the American citizens by cops.

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Grand Rapids police are investigating after two teens were shot and wounded at an apartment complex on the city’s northeast side Sunday afternoon.
The Grand Rapids Police Department says it happened at 2:11 p.m. at Cambridge Square Apartments in the 1800 block of Bradford Street NE off of Plymouth Avenue.
Police say one bullet grazed a 17-year-old on his back and a 14-year-old was shot in the upper leg. Their injuries are believed to be non-life-threatening. Only the 14-year-old was taken to the hospital.
The shooter was initially on foot before taking off in a white SUV, police say. They have not been located.
The circumstances leading up to the shooting are not yet known. Police say the victims are not cooperating in the investigation.
Residents reported hearing at least three gunshots, police said. Bullets also flew through two downstairs apartments, but no one inside was hurt.
A teen who lives in one of those downstairs apartments told 24 Hour News 8 he was in the basement when he heard the gunshots. Bullets traveled through the living room, breaking the glass sliding door in the rear and becoming embedded in the front wall. No one was in the living room at the time.
“I woke up. I heard three or four bullets and then the next thing you know I heard the windows shatter. And that’s when me and my nephew came running up the stairs,” the teen said.

Damage caused by gunfire at Cambridge Square Apartments on Grand Rapids’ northeast side. (Aug. 14, 2016)
Neighbors say shootings have become a problem in the area. They said they think there should be more security and patrols.
GRA:Judging by the lack of cooperation by the "victims"(who are really complicit in probable gang activity),we know these are blacks.In fact,I just heard the interview with the kids involved--black.
If this is connected to Saturday morning's crime spree,it would be quite an event for a town like Grand Rapids (even as bad as it's getting).Police are looking for 2 suspects in this shooting today.

I kid you not, next day after I posted the above comment about Shemar Moore from Criminal Minds and karmic justice I spotted this article on MSN:
I'd claim prescience but I think this should really go under easily predictable black attitude. Shemar Moore is being interviewed and goes on and on about "karmic justice" in regard to the firing of Thomas Gibson, he also suggests that somebody (doesn't name Gibson directly but we know who he is talking about) who think he's better than other people gets his just desserts. Then the article mentions that Gibson and Moore conflicted about Moore's penchant for "lateness" and we know that when blacks are not being professional, and whitey complains, then negroes say the white man thinks he's better than you. Truth is, the problem all along is usually black people's attitudes and behaviors.

Now I don't what Gibson is like to work with and maybe there's some truth to him being a primadonna, I don't really know, but being late to the set on a TV show is going to cause problems and if Moore thinks that not his fault then he's just another clueless negro.

All I can say to you Mr. Moore, is that Gibson may be a hard taskmaster and expect professional behavior but at least he didn't steal over 60 grand from you like your "brotha" did.

Funny,how the media seems to be siding with the police in Milwaukee
today--since the cop who shot the black thug,was black also.No interest in covering the story,if it doesn't have a racial angle to it.Then all they're left with,is blacks rioting for no reason and MSM media isn't interested in they're trying to wrap it up ASAP.

Watching FoxBiz this morning--I've noticed,they like to bring blacks on that are Trump supporters(they've found about 4 total so interview repeatedly.
One of them was on today talking about how Trump would help black unemployment better than Democrats.Stating jobless rates of 32 to 40%,this black--in his 20s,wearing a nice suit and tie,claimed Trump would improve those numbers.I disagree.I don't think ANYONE in government can make an impact because of this one fact.
Those that are jobless are very likely those with serious criminal records--and unemployable.They've committed felonies,gone to prison by the time they're 25,and will not be hired by anyone with a brain,for the rest of their lives.
Most are repeat offenders and cannot be rehabilitated.They are in fact,addicted to crime,drugs and antisocial behavior.I believe that no matter the social program--short of decriminalizing ALL CRIME--the black unemployment rate is unmovable.They won't change their lifestyle of being uneducated,lazy and criminally inclined.
THAT needs to be honestly discussed...but I'm sure it will not.
