Ex-commander's testimony supports Ariz. cop appealing termination
By Patrick Lohmann
ALBUQUERQUE — A former Albuquerque police commander in charge of the two officers fired for excessive force in 2011 said during a Wednesday city personnel hearing that he told his officers the man they were looking for had killed a Colorado police officer the day before.
But the commander then said he never tried to verify that information before he put a warning memo in each of his officers' mailboxes.
