Albuquerque, NM — In the Land of the Free, those tasked with protecting and serving all too often do the exact opposite. Instead of investigating rapes and murders police departments spend billions enforcing an immoral war on drugs. Instead of solving thefts, police are kicking in doors looking for an illegal plant. And, in the case of Jeremy Waller, instead of arresting the person who’d stolen his truck, the same department who murdered a man for illegal camping, did not care about catching the thief at all.

Waller just learned the hard way how unconcerned the Albuquerque police department is when it comes to helping citizens and stopping criminals. However, he also realized the power a community has when they come together to prevent and fight crime — sans police.

Last week, Waller, who is missing one leg after a horrible motorcycle accident last year, was laying in bed when he heard the sound of his pickup truck start in his front yard. Knowing he’d not told anyone they could drive it, Waller made his way outside as fast as he could to attempt to stop the thief.

However, he was too late. By the time Waller made it outside, his pickup truck was already peeling out down the street.

“It’s invasive,” he said. “They’re at your home.”


As KOB reports, Waller’s truck is loud when it’s running — but when it’s not, there’s really no way to know someone’s inside. The windows are so dark that it may have helped that thief out. The first thing he did was rip a dome light out so no one would know he was in there.

After realizing he’d been robbed, Waller did what most people would do — he called the cops. He also reached out to his community via Facebook.

“First thing I did was call 911, but I logged into Facebook,” Waller said.

While talking with the police on the phone, Waller began receiving hits on the whereabouts of his stolen truck.

“My friends responded immediately. I think [in] 20 minutes they found the truck,” he said.

By the time the officer responded to his home, Waller and his friends had found the stolen truck. Waller had his friend on the phone who was following the truck. They knew the exact location and were tracking it in person and in real time.

This information on the whereabouts of the truck would be invaluable to a police department looking to solve a crime, right? Seems like an open and shut case. All the cops had to do was dispatch a couple of units to the location of the truck, arrest the bad guy, return the truck, and be heroes. However, that is not what happened.

Instead of helping Waller, police simply didn’t care.

“I was sitting here with the cop, I told him, ‘Hey, my friend is behind the truck and this is where it’s at,'” Waller said.

But the officer told Waller that they weren’t going to pursue the truck. Naturally, Waller was shocked.

This was an easy case for the police, yet they were entirely unconcerned. So, Waller took matters into his own hands — and he was far more successful than the cops.

As KOB reports, in August, Waller and his wife both lost a leg in a horrifying motorcycle crash near Cochiti Lake. On a prosthetic, Waller had to jump in his own vehicle to go recover his truck.

“(APD) wanted nothing to do with it,” he said. “Just a lot of the events lately, I’ve seen similar stories and it’s just disappointing that they almost act like they really don’t care.”

Instead of waiting around on the cops, who ‘really don’t care’, Waller and a half dozen friends got in their vehicles and pursued the thief on their own. When they found his truck, they boxed it in and the thief took off running.

Waller got his truck back, but thanks to the complacency and careless attitude of the APD, a car thief is now free to strike again. However, because of the vigilance of the citizens proving they can solve crimes without cops, perhaps that thief will think twice next time.

To illustrate the devious nature of the APD, KOB left a statement on their website about how the department treats them now.

An important editor’s note: Ordinarily, KOB would reach out to APD for comment on this sort of story prior to a newscast, or prior to publishing on However, in recent months, that courtesy has resulted in KOB content being distributed to other news outlets by the Albuquerque Police Department.

To maintain the integrity of our content, our management has decided to reach out to APD for comment at the first opportunity on Saturday. We will share the department’s response with you then.

It is no wonder that a department who deliberately sabotages their local news agency would also refuse to do their job and arrest a car thief.

      The police enforce the social order and protect the interests of our rulers. Government is just an intermediary.

    I gave the Kennesaw police department a video recording of the man that broke into my car and stole my credit card. Even though the Kennesaw Ga police dept had the video and proof positive of the crook, they refused to do ANYTHING!

    Yet, when my neighbor, a retired Army officer reported a heroin dealer, the same department raided his home and put a gun in HIS face! Frog-marched him up the neighborhood and forced him, through additional threats of violence to sign a known false confession of a known faked crime!

    Then FORCED him by threat of physical restraint to accept a compulsory injection of an unknown substance! Yes…this is happening in America!

    Kennesaw Ga police are fine, fine officers! Lie, cheat, steal, and falsify reports at will!

    • Ibcamn

  • Ibcamn

    told you cops are worthless………they are just responders,they don’t make money solving crimes..cops are criminals and they know it,you can’t have cops just run up and get the criminals,because they don’t have time to get ready,you know,put on all their costumes….the swat gear they love so much,to play dress-up and then,in a large group of armed men,storm the house or have a armed stand off….all that theater is there so they make it look like they are needed,to put on a play for the masses,without that they will not do shit for the people.
    don’t bother with 911,just get it done yourself,cops are not the ..”highly trained”…officers you think they are,cops are jujst a bunch of cowards with badges and guns that now will murder you in cold blood if you question their authority,they are not trained to do shit,just how to be terrorists,they will rape rob and kill with a smile on their chubby cheeks and then go eat donuts and go to bed sleep well and get up and do it all over again,they are the thugs,armed thugs with a badge,nothing more……………………….

    im guessing this guy scared the shit outta them,he solved the crime before they arrived…hahahahaha
