WATCH: Retired Cop Charged with Punching and Knocking Mailman out who disagreed with his Politics

Lying came easy to Roberto Gutierrez as he was being interviewed by New Mexico police after punching a mail carrier in the face and knocking him out cold during an ongoing feud over politics earlier this month.

He was a retired cop, after all, and was not shy about flexing his Blue Privilege, claiming the mail carrier had threatened him and his  family and had “got in his face,” making him fear for his safety.

And the responding Las Vegas police officer was going along with the lie, telling him he will not be going to jail based solely on his status as a retired cop.

But the lie fell apart when federal investigators came across a neighbor’s security camera which recorded Gutierrez punching the mail carrier three times as the mail carrier was trying to do his job.

According to local news reports, the former cop is a Trump supporter and the mail carrier is a Biden supporter and they would get into political debates each time the mail carrier delivered the mail to his house.

On December 3, the mail carrier had a package that required Gutierrez’s signature but instead of knocking on his door, he left a note in his mailbox, informing him that he must pick up the package at the post office.

The mail carrier told investigators he chose not to deliver the package because he did not want to engage in another argument over politics with Gutierrez. But that was a violation of USPS policy, the postal agency told police.

Gutierrez became enraged that the mail carrier did not deliver the package so he stormed out of his house dressed only in shorts to confront him about it.

The video contains no audio but shows a shirtless Gutierrez walking up behind the mail carrier as he was reaching into his truck and punching him after they had exchanged some words.

The mail carrier stood back up and began arguing with him (when he probably should have maced him) resulting in the cop punching him again, knocking him backwards, causing him to hit his head on the bumper of the postal truck.

He stood back up again and faced off with Gutierrez who then punched him a third time, knocking him out in the middle of the street. The mail carrier never took a swing at the cop.

“Being a retired police officer, I don’t think you’ll be going to jail,” the responding Las Vegas cop told him, according to bodycam footage obtained by local media which you can watch below.

But he was arrested by U.S. Marshals on December 6 on one count of assault on a federal officer, according to the Las Vegas Optic.He is facing up to 20 years in prison.

Gutierrez retired from the Las Vegas Police Department in 2015 after obtaining the rank of commander where he was in charge of training, recruiting and hiring, according to his LinkedIn Page.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.

    • He’ll get 71 months. Watch and you’ll see. He’s in LV and the federal judges there hand out very stiff sentences for violence.
