Albuquerque Police Chief Gordon Eden's resume, posted on Twitter, shows how he developed a system for recruiting armed forces personnel into law enforcement. The photos from Sunday show the results of what he has done.

11 pm Albuquerque police continue firing tear gas and macing peaceful protesters

One woman told Censored News, "They threw tear gas just a few feet from where we were standing. There were kids around! Then they started macing folks who were just standing around. Incredible show of force, with all the rifles, batons, horses, truck full of guys in camo, snipers, etc,. etc. The only threat of violence was the police."

ACLU: UN holds US accountable for human rights violations at home and abroad:
""This month in Geneva, the U.S. faced a barrage of questions from renowned human rights experts regarding its compliance with the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR), one of the few international human rights treaties the U.S. has ratified.  During the extensive review, the committee raised critical points about the United States’ responses to questions on issues such as counter-terrorism operations overseas, treatment of migrants, racial disparities in the criminal justice system, and felon disenfranchisement laws. The U.N. committee’s findings and recommendations (called “Concluding Observations”) address many of the issues raised by ACLU and other groups in reports and briefings that took place prior to the US review.
