After a busy four months, our fall #interns concluded their program today. The cohort joined the #WeAreHSEMA family during the District's expected second-wave of COVID-19 and as preparations for the 59th Presidential Inauguration really started to ramp up. The group has since experienced First Amendment demonstrations, a historic Flooding event, riots, the insurrection at the US Capitol, and a 59th Presidential Inauguration...just to name a few!

Today, they presented on their experiences throughout the internship program. We are so proud of their work and can confidently say they are leaving this #internship having made a positive and lasting impact on District residents, businesses and visitors. Congratulations on a job well done! 🌟👏

Please file The Name Jehovah and the Watchtower and Bible Tract Society and affiliates including Joseph E. Cruz are a defaulted and incriminated group. The United States with military and judges are a defaulted, impeached, and incriminated group especially as pertains to military entrance and Lukis Cruz. Balance: ongoing
CRIME WATCH New Mexicotrue= procedural high crimes. While the victim can't make it to court or make a competent report, New Mexico makes them a defendant who is at that point in cruel and unusual procedure on purpose. And the U.S. falls from heaven to "get some" in the rape. (See case Lukis Cruz)
This was posted on Facebook. I am afraid what transpired this past Wednesday at the Capitol could happen again, so I am bringing this to your attention.
CRIME REPORT vs. Judge Kenneth Gonzalez The United States Audrey Morey The duo and army have been found in tandem in the murder and or cover up of the murder of Khaleb Cruz. There was also a series of crimes which occurred around and part of the murder of Khaleb Cruz. I Lukis Cruz had absolutely no knowledge nor involvement with the crimes although Audrey Cruz aka Audrey Morey is known to have arranged a specific event which was very disrespectful to Lukis Cruz and hurtful to his life by making him part and portion to an abortion without his permission or understanding. Yes she manipulated it intentionally and decisively. (Since then I am not the decision maker over my life because criminals like the U.S. have been manipulating instead of allowing my own will and minding their business, control freaks afraid to get caught). The response to a memo sent back from a judge in the United States Court is as follows on the numbered points but not limited to these. This report is valid for armaments and evidence WITH ME for future proceedings in other cases even if not my own lead. 1: This case contains numerous hate crimes on various levels against one man/ hate discrimination 2: this case contains numerous discriminations against one child (as opposed to another) and one man who WAS NOT in violation or somehow deviant and the playing it as such is for the purpose of cover-up of these other crimes he suffered alive for years now and a child suffered in heinous short instant of time. 3: Kenneth Gonzalez obviously has no value for for fair hearings never having been a victim of crime himself, why is he judging the customer, the prescription is hereby entered for this policy and crime report, remove all fair hearings from Kenneth's future plate please. 4: during the ongoing war the U.S. and New Mexico waged upon one man who survives for his sons and the best interest of the human race the following subset crimes speak louder than words and are not limited to these but the U.S. or criminals within and Morey reap benefit a. Criminal government over a person who ONLY MAKES MONEY and the theft from him b. The facts around the death of Khaleb are such that a definite monetary award or compensation can and must be given to Lukis Cruz by overwhelming evidence of all likelihood these people did as he says since we know for sure someone or someones did what he says by the worthless on purpose handling and fall short style ONLY at junctures which would bear fruit to an investigation c. police reform bill agrees d. An extreme amount of unwarranted heinous treatment of Lukis Cruz agrees e. It is believed they Barak Obama (and thus U.S.) and a criminal as lawyer stole the identity of fleece which had much value and was in all likelihood used for the criminals calling themselves United States. 5: default judgement has not been returned when the court would have obliterated anyone else. Incidentally those shielded from default judgement or who's response is conveniently not forwarded are known crime ties to the criminal U.S. (the U.S. being caught off sides and unable to recover it's legal and lawful place which sits vacant due to awol nation running scams with its criminal buddies.) 6: the U.S. being forwarded a letter from Lukis Cruz fr request of money with specific directives was married with and made poisonous thus unusable for quality purposes. (I have since turned off the funds but the U.S. is continually observed in deviant behavior making quality impossible. Their behavior and criminals as government speak for themselves when they owed the money anyways) 7: did I say that the character of these people speaks for itself. They are always on the wrong side and for the purpose of slander, a byproduct behavior stemming from already being devoted to crime cover-up and only that as a possibility.......... Balance: punitive monetary compensation ________________________ Lukis Cruz P.O.Box 22282 Santa Fe NM 87502 [email protected] [email protected] 505-469-8720
Lukis Cruz (jury) vs. The United States Judge William Johnson and Courts, Verizon, New Mexico, Audrey Morey, Attorney, Colfax County Sheriff Department Please accept my entry of status update as above. It has become necessary due to crime performed ex parte and made obvious by the disservices found in the U.S. District Court Santa Fe NM USA and the presumptive assumption of my identity by the court who is known by course to be in theft as I live in emergency condition. I authorize no use of my identity and enter warning of public harm since the U.S. presents a public service only to do harm to customers walking in the door. When fired the judge cannot let go and performs in crime against customers. In New Mexico it is considered a felony to operate business for the purpose of disservices to the customer. No billable services as of yet as per statute, only disservices. Presumptive name use as if they were my guardian (Google search). Presumptive law infliction which is a disability in comparison to professionals in the public. The US just by walking in the door has made me less than human without cause and presumptively in criminal opportunism. This is a crime report against the US due their court which instead of disclosing previous criminal ties and impact affecting me has instead engaged to make erroneous and negative judgements to a customer who is without any I'll will accept must be retreading on territory they already harvested by stealing my identity and protection and wasting it by throwing the money out a helicopter window to the public. Balance: punitive monetary compensation against the US and criminals and or government Right to sue the government to, Lukis Cruz
