Police union calls name on protest tombstone offensive

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – The Albuquerque Police Union president says it was wrong for demonstrators to use the name of Christopher Chase during a protest.

At Saturday’s protest someone put Chase’s name on a tombstone among those depicting victims shot and killed by Albuquerque police.

APOA President Stephanie Lopez called the act “offensive.”

You may remember in October Chase shot four officers during a 16-mile chase badly injuring a Bernalillo County Sheriff’s deputy.

Police shot back and chase died.

The protest organizer declined to comment on the Chase tombstone.
