James Baca started this petition to Socorro County, NM and all interested parties

February 2019, Magdalena Marshal's Officer, Carlos Valenzuela under the name carlosvalenzuela26 on the social media app, TikTok recorded videos demeaning the Native American Population of Socorro County, NM

The videos and photos shared over social media mocked the substance abuse and mental issues that affect the Native American community every day.

The playing of music in the background of a video of an intoxicated individual needing aid from a first responder not only violates the social media policy of nearly every law enforcement organization, but hits at the core of common decency and ethics.

Mr. Valenzuela, a sworn officer, broke that trust. He filmed citizens on the clock while they were in a condition where they can not consent to personal video. If body cam video exists, fine, but a personal device was used in the videos made public set to music.

News Report of Carlos Valenzuela's treatment of citizens

We ask that Magdalena Marshal's uphold the social media policy that every LEO has and ask for the resignation of Carlos Valenzuela. If not received, termination of employment is wanted.

There is no grey area here

Citizens past and present in this area have discussed this long enough. We seek action immediately
