ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Critics of the Albuquerque Police Department are" rel="nofollow - raising serious questions about the fatal shooting of a homeless camper in the foothills, one even calling it murder. Meanwhile, the department says the shooting was justified.

In the department’s" rel="nofollow - first news conferen since the shooting took place, APD did something they normally don’t do," rel="nofollow - releasing the entire video of the incident.

Police say 38-year-old James M. Boyd is the man who was killed in the shooting last Sunday. So far, they’ve been unable to contact any of Boyd’s family members.

New Albuquerque Police chief Gorden Eden said Friday the video shows that the latest officer involved shooting is justified.

Boyd was arguing with police for more three hours last Sunday in the foothills after officers went to talk to him about illegally camping in open space.

During Friday’s press conference, Chief Eden released video of the moment when officers first contacted Boyd. When one officer went to frisk Boyd, the homeless camper could then be heard refusing to comply, saying he was a government agent. The video shows Boyd continued to refuse officer commands and began threatening their lives.

“I’m almost going to kill you right now. Don’t give me another directive. Don’t attempt to give me, the Department of Defense, another directive,” said Boyd at the beginning of the incident.

As the hours passed, Chief Eden said an APD Crisis Intervention Team officer and a State Police liaison were called to the scene. Both attempted to speak with Boyd, however, Chief Eden says Boyd continued to threaten officers with death. Police also discovered that Boyd had a violent 20-year criminal history that included multiple incidents of violence against officers. Boyd’s history also showed years of mental health related concerns.

Video shows when officers moved in on Boyd around 7:30 p.m on the night of the shooting. At the beginning of incident, Boyd can be heard saying, “In a private world, if you were down at a bar or a bus stop, I would have the right to kill you right now because you’re trying to take me over. Don’t get stupid with me!”" rel="nofollow - Video shows Boyd then began grabbing bags and attempted to leave when officers started their use of non-lethal force.

As Boyd is moving, officers then threw a flash bang and released a K9 which appears to bite Boyd in the hand. Chief Eden said officers also used a taser gun and bean bag rounds. Two officers, Dominque Perez and Keith Sandy then both fired three bullets each from their department issued rifles, causing Boyd to fall to the ground.

It’s unclear how many shots hit Boyd. APD says it is waiting on a report from the Office of the Medical Investigator to determine an exact cause of death.

However, the video is already raising some questions because of how Boyd appears to be turning away from the officers when bullets were fired.

Chief Eden called the shooting justified at the news conference, saying officers used non-lethal force first and that there was a direct threat made at an unarmed K9 officer. According to Chief Eden, Boyd was less than eight feet from the unarmed canine officer.

“Actually if you watch the video tape, all the less than lethal devices were in fact deployed. It was when the canine officer was down directing the canine dog that the suspect pulled out the two knives and directed a threat to the canine officer who had no weapons drawn. He was handling the dog,” Chief Eden said.

News 13 asked Chief Eden directly, “do you believe this was a justified shooting?”

Chief Eden responded, “Yes, if you follow case law, ‘Garner versus Tennessee’, there was directed threat to an officer.”

In the video recording, officer Keith Sandy’s gun can be heard firing around the exact same second as a beanbag gun. Officer Dominque Perez can be seen firing his gun next, after several pops are heard.

The press conference ended abruptly Friday without reporters being able to ask all of the questions they wanted. After taking questions for four minutes, an APD spokeswoman attempted to stop the press conference but Chief Eden took questions for two more minutes. After that, Chief Eden walked off, thanking reporters and saying “we’re good.”

News 13 wanted to ask why officers didn’t try to use a taser on Boyd again before moving in and why they didn’t have shields.

APD says the two officers who fired shots remain on leave.

One of the officers who was involved," rel="nofollow - Keith Sandy has a notable history  in New Mexico law enforcement. APD hired Sandy in 2007 after he was fired by New Mexico State Police over the Wackenhut scandal. Sandy was accused of fraud for making money doing private security work while on the clock for State Police.

When Sandy was hired by APD, the department said he would be a civilian employee and he wouldn’t have a gun or a badge. However, Sandy quickly rose through the department, landing on the ROPE Team, which goes after repeat offenders or some of the city’s most dangerous criminals." rel="nofollow -

Two officers will be charged with murder in Albuquerque over the March 2014 fatal shooting of a homeless man, the district attorney" rel="nofollow - announced this week . The charges come in a city that has seen a spate of police killings far disproportionate to its size, and a" rel="nofollow - finding by the Department of Justice that the majority of a spate of police killings violated the U.S. Constitution.

In the killing at issue here, police fired on a homeless, mentally disturbed man who appeared to be surrendering at the time. Officers first approached 38-year-old James Boyd while he was sleeping in the Albuquerque foothills to talk to him about illegally camping. Video of the incident appears to show that he had agreed to walk down the mountain with officers, when one of them fired a flashbang device that disoriented him, and deployed a police dog. Boyd then pulled out two knives and started to run away from police, appearing at one point to tell officers he was agent for the Department of Defense, when the shots were fired.

The police department initially said the shooting was “justified,” but later conceded under public pressure that may have been a mistake. The shooting of Boyd was one of two controversial police shootings in a period of less than ten days, and" rel="nofollow - one of more than 37 in the city since 2010 , 23 of them fatal. To put this volume in context, New York City" rel="nofollow - saw about the same number of shootings during that period for a population that is 15 times as high, according to the ACLU of New Mexico.

In a demonstration of outrage, the city" rel="nofollow - erupted in protest for 10 hours in late March, escalating into what Mayor Richard Berry called “mayhem” as officers clashed with protesters, donning riot gear and deploying tear gas.

In retrospect, the images coming out of that protest provided a foreboding preview of clashes to come in Ferguson, New York City, and elsewhere, where grand juries ultimately did not file any charges against the officers who killed unarmed victims and illuminated the" rel="nofollow - epidemic failure to hold police accountable for what many perceive as brutality. But this week, the narrative changed course in New Mexico. Bernalillo County District Attorney Kari Brandenburg did not take the case before a grand jury. And she did not find the use of deadly force “justified.” Instead, she" rel="nofollow - will charge two officers with the highest possible charge of first-degree murder, according to the New Mexico Political Report.

A contributing factor may be the role of the federal government in the city. While a federal investigation of the Boyd incident has not yet yielded any civil rights charges, the federal government did exercise its other power to curb police brutality via a citywide investigation of police brutality. The so-called “pattern and practice” investigations that the Justice Department has deployed in some 20 cities over the past five years may have had" rel="nofollow - some of the most sweeping impact in curbing police brutality under Attorney General Eric Holder.

Albuquerque is now under federal monitoring and subject to an agreement known as a consent decree, after the Justice Department investigation" rel="nofollow - yielded scathing findings that a majority of the Albuquerque police department’s 20 fatal shootings between 2009 and 2012 were unconstitutional.

While filing charges is not among the changes mandated in the agreement with the Justice Department, it may have influenced the culture and attitudes of government officials, as the report found that a select number of officers were responsible for a disproportionate number of violent incidents, and that those individuals were" rel="nofollow - not punished or corrected in any way after their actions.

So they shot the man first, then told him to get on the ground. After he is on the ground, they continue shooting him. As usual these assholes ganged up on one person and used him as target practice.

I can't look at another murder on tape. Not today. I'm glad that finally a cop is being charged. I'm assuming the victim was white though? That would be the only explanation as to what they're actually pursuing justice...
