    Ok, I have to say this… APD is playing this up way too much… They KNOW that the REAL protesters left about 7pm last night from 400 Roma… I went by around 7:30pm and no protesters were in site, streets closed but no one out there with the exception of a few news vans… The group that stayed out late, if you look at the faces were mostly college age kids and I have no idea what their agenda was but the REAL protest before these kids civil unrest was and stayed peaceful!!!!!

    I support the abq police dept. I know for a fact that they have a tough job. We should pray for the police instead of showing so much hate towards them.
