Gary Gabaldon's, family authorised picture, in his perfect 'correctional system' uniform, wearing his tie and well groomed hair, adorns the front page of the Albuquerque Journal almost daily. He is being praised in the main stream media as a wonderful young man and a fine upstanding member of the community.
His family is interviewed and their remorse is shown openly. With all of this Media attention, a casual reader or TV News watcher would guess he was somehow murdered in Iraq or by a deranged individual? Such a great loss to the community, appears evident... on the surface, and by what sinister means did they report he met his demise? A GUN of course. Also insinuated by the biased media, cut down in the prime of his (repeat offender) life by a 'Gunman'... A vigilante Gunman no less
Now the media's opposite portrayal of respected rancher, former Marine MP Luke Sanchez. A far different picture emerges on the first glance. A disheveld looking man with his hair a mess, is portrayed as would a drug crazed transient. His booking mug shot is obviously used by the gleeful Media. No nice photo, authorised by his family, no comb or any attempt to improve his beaten appearance. Quite the contrary, in the media photo he looks like a beaten up, 'presumed guilty' criminal. The media uses this portrayal method every time to spin their agenda. This media series is a perfect example of their conception of 'The Fairness Doctrine', and how it is manipulated in presenting the 'News'.
Luke Sanchez is a former Marine MP. Why did the media not use HIS uniform photo like they did for Gary? It would have been only fair. Luke Sanchez is a rare man that does NOT turn away from trouble. Contrary he heads toward the trouble as would a U.S. Marine. On that evening, Luke Sanchez was driving by a propane distributers office when he saw two men involved in a break-in and robbery.
Luke Sanchez maneuvered his car closer to get a license number from their vehicle while calling 911. He described the vehicle and noted to the dispatcher that the vehicle had no license plate. Almost immediately after, while warning the attacker away, his drivers window was battered in as he was on his cellphone to 911
The other robbery 'suspect', Gary Gabaldon's nephew, Rudy Sisneros, fled the scene. After hanging out at his mothers home for some days, he finally turned himself in. Now wasn't that nice? He waited to see what the public portrayal of the crime would look like. As soon as he saw the 'News Spin' against Luke Sanchez, he figured it wasn't going badly at all.... for he and his now demised criminal, repeat offender uncle. The USA's Politically Correct legal system has infested the nation with millions of Repeat Offenders, the main reason for it's overwhelming violence and crime.
The fact that his uncle, Gary Gabaldon, had formerly been a Corrections Officer, seemed to make no difference in the nephews following him into the more rewarding career of 'breaking and entering'. Now the interesting but predictable agenda driven News reports are saying 'The Community is divided'. They conveniently fail to mention at what percentage 'the divided community', divides. See this link
Both Gary Gabaldon and Luke Sanchez, (only according to the biased news), knew each other (doubtful) before this conflict of interests? Luke Sanchez serving the USA as an MP in the Marine Corps, and Gary Gabaldon serving as a jailer for a time (why was he terminated?). The flattering file photo endlessly flashed on The Media, is of Gary in his Correction Officer uniform.
Law enforcement in this and most other states, is selective. The community is fairly close and law enforcement knows much more than it reveals.
This same area of the state is associated with the 'mysterious' dissapearance of Pretty college student Tara Calico
Understandably Luke Sanchez views this local system as one in need of some 'assistance'. Last year, Luke, the former Marine MP, recognised, captured and held suspects after a break-in, until police arrived. The Media is now portraying Luke as a gun toting cowboy. Anything that will spin the news toward their Anti-Gun stance.
At this point the media is showing Luke Sanchez as the bad guy and Gary Gabaldon as the victim... Sick and yet predictable as the media spin progresses toward it's agenda of Firearm confiscation by an oppressive incompetant government, aparently terrified of it's own citizens.
Voters and Jurys are unpredictable though. After this same pattern of 'News Bias' against a person intervening in a local crime years ago, the jury found self defense for the defender. In these times, people are getting fed up with the legal system of protecting the repeat criminal. Catch and Realease are the means by which repeat offenders by the millions are roaming our streets in the USA. The public defenders office is tax supported and provides for every means available to get the minimum time served by the career criminal, so they are able to get back on 'the job'. After all, our present elected 'Controllers' of our nation desire to promote a 'Crises' in order to confiscate our Constitutional 2nd Amendment authorised, 'Firearms'. For an extremely educational lesson in human/society reality, it should be mandatory for every adult to take a certification course in 'CCW'. Of course like all education, how you use this new knowledge, if ever, is entirely up to you. This is what to expect
11 July 2009;
The Albuquerque Journal finally showed a decent picture of Luke Sanchez. The article actually showed some rare feeling for him. He now has a support group of people willing to stand up and fight for whats right in the community. If you wish to sign the petition, call Paul Caputo 1-505-975-2033 or... firstname.lastname@example.org ...for email of support. Paul will return email a printable copy of the petition to Lemuel Martinez, thirteenth judicial district attorney. Please get as many signatures as possible to have this travesty of justice rectified. Mail them to Paul's address listed on the email.
The Albuquerque Journal is slightly backing off on 'Media Prosecuting' Luke Sanchez for defending himself. It is becoming unpopular and the Media certainly does not desire to be 'unpopular'. If more people like Luke Sanchez were around, our crime repeat offenders would certainly be fewer. One other note; Gary Gabaldon has had many, many other 'run-in's with the law, violent physical arrest's NOT described in the Main Stream Media. The only loud repetitive news from the media is repeatedly, 'GUN' and of Course, 'Vigilante'.
11 July 2009 update;
10 pm TV reported 40 locals interviewed with an overwhelming 31 for Luke. Only 9 said charges should be filed. In the true 'spin' of media they interviewed roughly three of each opinion, with Gary's 'Homies' opinions presented last.
If the media had truely been 'un-biased', three of Lukes supporters and one of Gary's 'gang supporters' would have been televised, with Lukes suporters being in the majority, presented last. Fact, the last images viewed are the retained images. So predictable for the agenda driven media.. never accept them as factual... never.
Another ecxample of THEIR 'Fairness Doctrine' ...repeated endlessly.
Florida and Kansas as well as over 22 other states (2009) have far more comprehensive laws dealing with this type of incident. New Mexico with it's lack of a 'Castle Doctrine', is far more unpredictable. Local atmosphere overides 'Rule of Law'.
The obvious media spin is having its effect...with many. If the spin methods are observed and fully understood, (journalism teaches 'spin') this case would not fly, charges would be dropped.. except for the wild card, Political Ambitions.
13 July 2009:
News is dominated by this case, especially the talk shows. 'Call in' People are adamant about Luke's getting a raw deal from the District attorney. I walked our neighborhood, getting a few signatures to send in with the petition I printed from Paul Cavuto. I ran into about the same minority of people the news station did. The people that said he should have just turned a blind eye to the crime. One said he should have shot his leg... Another said the Governor would be the one to decide... One said we are not in that district and should stay out of it's problems? I hope they are not victimised themselves some night. It would be really hard for me to intervene in any way. I guess many people (one out of four) would just continue on their way and 'Not Get Involved'. The Killing of Kitty Genovese
This nation will become stronger when the hundreds of thousands of fine military men and women return and run for public office in every state and national election. This crowd of criminals presently leading our nation, desperately need to be replaced.
