(caption under photo for this article) Records? We don’ got no stinkin’ records. We’re lucky we got batches, man. (laughs heartily) Records – phht! Puh-leeze! (Man, this stuff just writes itself!)

Seems to me the picture for this article is déjà vu… didn’t a certain recent ex-sheriff sport a similar smile the day before an Albuquerque jury came back with an unexpected verdict not too long ago?

“Statements collected by Barnes, and his own report, offer versions of events that deviate from the lapel footage.” Holy shamoly! And then a court-recognized professional witness on police policy and procedure publicly questions your professionalism (or lack thereof, really) and justificatio…
