Teachings about violence

The answer to this question of slapping a comedian on national tv or invading an innocent country is In The teachings of Ghandi and Jesus and the Buddha , to understand with wisdom that violence is destruction and to abstain from it with all your heart and to treat your neighbor as yourself , these are the golden rules of the ancient ones , they should be protected and cherished like the flowers cherish the sun , they should always crash into the beaches of our minds , non-violence turns out to be a great strength we all know , only the strongest posses this , like the old wise man who saved the city when the warriors failed ,take heed all the dictators are filled with haughtiness and self centeredness forgetting humility ,creating tradgedy in the face of the humanity , defying God , forgetting whoever Judges , Judges God, All people are the children of The most high , the rewards of violence are death and sorrow the rewards of peace are love and life , may love and peace forever be painted across the canvas of your heart, love means you wish goodwill, peace and life for your neighbor, those who practice love practice the works of the father and the golden rule , the practice of light , when one walks with love they they are fulfilling what is written , wisdom is fear of god understanding is love of god , may your steps be shod with the fear and love of God , the alpha and omega who gives and takes away , humility will keep you in love and knowing the power of god will keep you wise..

Jamal Mashburn Jr. leads New Mexico Mens to their first Mountain West Conference win of the season with 23 points. Going 9/12 from the field, and adding six rebounds, it seemed like he was in the zone.

House dropped 18 points, 13 assists, 7 rebounds. Jay Allen-Tovar also added 18 points while KJ Jenkins added to the win with 13 points and 7 rebounds.

NMSP Investigates OIS involving the Rio Rancho Police Department

Rio Rancho, NM – On January 26, 2022, the New Mexico State Police Investigations Bureau was requested to investigate an officer-involved shooting in Rio Rancho, NM involving the Rio Rancho Police Department (RRPD). 

Agents learned that at approximately 10:30 p.m., the RRPD responded to a domestic violence incident at 4668 Platinum Drive NE in Rio Rancho. The reporting person stated her son, John Paul Romero (42) of Rio Rancho, was armed with a knife and harming family members inside the residence.

When RRPD officers arrived at the residence, they encountered Romero armed with a knife. At some point during the encounter, two RRPD officers discharged their department-issued firearms, striking Romero. Romero was pronounced deceased on scene by the Office of Medical Investigator. 

The reporting person and another family member were both transported by emergency medical personnel to an area hospital for injuries believed to be non-life-threatening.

No officers were injured during the incident. The names of the officers involved will not be released by the New Mexico State Police. For information about the domestic violence incident, the identities of the officers involved, and the administrative actions of the officers, please contact the Rio Rancho Police Department.

The New Mexico State Police Investigations Bureau agents are working to independently determine the series of events leading to the shooting, including collecting evidence and conducting interviews. Throughout the process, investigation findings will be shared with the district attorney for their review and consideration.

The New Mexico State Police acts solely as factfinders in its cases and does not determine whether the actions of an officer were justified in these types of matters. That decision rests with the district attorney’s office. This incident remains under investigation by the New Mexico State Police.

Heroes In Action : New Mexico State Police Helicopter Hoists Injured Hiker to Safety in Socorro County


Socorro County, NM – On January 22, 2022, at around 4:00 p.m., the New Mexico State Police Special Operations Aircraft Section assisted New Mexico Search and Rescue (NM SAR) with the rescue of a stranded and injured hiker in the LaDrones Mountains, near LaDron Peak.

A Socorro Fire Department paramedic and a Socorro County Sheriff’s Office deputy had hiked to the location of the injured 50-year-old female and were providing medical care.  The New Mexico State Police Helicopter, call sign ABLE 7 crewed by a pilot, a hoist operator, and a rescue specialist launched to the area to assist. 

ABLE 7’s crew located the injured hiker and her rescuers near the top of the mountain.  The NMSP rescue specialist was lowered down to the hiker where she and the Socorro Fire Department paramedic were prepared for hoisting. 

The hoist mission, which took place at 9,100 feet was a success.  ABLE 7 airlifted the injured hiker to a waiting Socorro Fire Department ambulance, and she was transported to an area hospital with injuries not believed to be life-threatening.  Her current condition is not known.

“I’m very happy to hear of another successful rescue mission by the hard-working members of the NMSP Aircraft Section, and local first responding partners,” said Tim Johnson, Chief of the New Mexico State Police.  “The response of ABLE 7 and its crew most certainly saved this hiker’s life”.

The New Mexico State Police unveiled its new helicopter, an Airbus H145 on January 10, 2020, and it’s been proudly serving the citizens of New Mexico ever since.
