Investigative reporter Jeff Proctor
talks about a dirty big secret. 

 

Jeff Proctor of New Mexico in Depth and the Santa Fe Reporter, one of the top investigative reporters in our state, returns to Here and There to talk about a dirty big secret.  The rules of Federal Court in New Mexico allow prosecutors to hide from defense attorneys and the public exactly what they are doing and why.  In one brace of cases Jeff has been reporting for more than a year now, this prosecutorial secrecy has shielded from scrutiny prosecutors’ justifications for a series of ATF drug and gun crime raids in Albuquerque which yielded arrests whose numbers suggest racial profiling may have polluted the exercise.  One clue: the African-American percentage of those arrested was nine times the percentage of African-Americans living in the city. The details of how that came about are still, with the complicity of the Federal Courts, being kept secret.
