It was not a good week for Albuquerque DWI Attorney, John Higgins, seen at this KOBtv link threatening APD officers on video . The powers of the Cop-Dash-Cam are pretty revealing.

I thought it was hilarious. What's really funny is that he is going to claim he is innocent.

Remarkably, even if insurmountable evidence causes Mr Higgins to be found guilty, the Defense Bar will not sanction him nor will his license even be remotely in jeopardy. That's Law in N.M.

He's certainly a squeaky wheel in the video. Action of the APD seems top-notch. Maybe makes up a teeny bit for the APD cop who wants his job back after clobbering the KOBtv reporter on camera awhile back.

I say it goes beyond squeeky wheel, that is a lot of threats for the officer's future and since everybody who is anybody aruond here in seats of power all seem to have gone to law school together, Id say that they arent idle threats,

I see a new advertising campaign when he's found guilty: "I defend DWI cases because I'm a drunk driver myself!".

Thank god, or whomever is in charge here, that we have those cameras to be witness to what actually happened. We need cameras where ever those who think they are our leaders or protectors work, especially our local & state government. As many cultures have noted, a picture is worth a thousand words or more! (Some writer somewhere tried to compare words to images & edited it down to "a thousand words." Probably couldn't take the competition with the power of images) Remember, believe nothing you hear & only half of what you see...

Anyone else notice just how quickly APD released the video? IF KOB had asked for the one of (lets say) the AFD employee, then it's under investigation and you'll have to wait till have the trial. But a DWI attorney, well lets give the video to everyone. The 5th floor at APD HQ operates quickly when revenge is in the air.

Cheers, Mi3ke

That would be the "(lets say)" portion of the festivities. It's a hypothetical.
