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.
