Albuquerque Cops Who Killed Homeless Man Are Facing Murder Charges

By Joshua Krause

I’m sure many of you remember the death of James Boyd. He was the mentally ill homeless man who was killed by Albuquerque police officers Keith Sandy and Dominique Perez, back in March of 2014. You may also recall the graphic video of his death, as well as the incriminating recording of comments made by Keith Sandy before the confrontation, both of which make it clear that James Boyd was murdered by these officers.

For the longest time it seemed like these officers would never face justice for what they did, but that may be about to change. Prosecutor Randi McGinn announced on Monday that she intends to charge the two officers with second-degree murder, voluntary manslaughter, and aggravated battery. The prosecution will lay out their evidence to a judge in August, who will decide if Perez and Sandy should be taken to court.

Sandy’s defense attorney has since issued a statement defending his client: “There is no justification for charging Keith Sandy with any crime. [Keith Sandy] was a police officer protecting a fellow officer when he shot a mentally unstable man wielding two knives. There is simply no criminal intent.” While it may be his job to defend his client no matter what, somehow how I doubt that a jury will see it that way after watching the body cam footage of James Boyd’s death.

  1. When they are convicted with more than a hand slap or paid vacation then it will be justice, until then just more kabuki theater

  2. The homeless guy was white-so the cops might get off. See the fairly recent cases of two other whites murdered by cops: Douglas Zerby and Kelly Thomas. Oh yeah, also Gilbert Collar. A group like CofCC could probably provide you with a much longer list if and when they survive the current SJW witch hunt. Is Lon Horiuchi (FBI sniper who blew off Vicki Weaver’s head while she was standing in the doorway holding her infant) still making product endorsements?

  3. You Americans should get the hell out of the country while you can before they erect a wall and fire up the ovens.

  4. Albuquerque Pertektinservirs are in a race with Flor-A-Duh Sherfs to see who wins The Douchebag Cops Of The Universe Award.
    Those two gangs make it easy for people, especially Ameribabwe Africans, to hate all cops.

  5. Those cops should get the book thrown at them.

  6. Effing Pigs!
