Huwag na ang mga guro. Mga nasibak na pulis at sundalo na naging masamang elemento ng lipunan gaya ng gun for hire na lang.

Ito ang naging payo ni Senador at dating Philippine National Police Chief Panfilo Lacson sa ahensiya, matapos lumutang ang balitang isinailalim nito sa “profiling” ang guro na miyembro ng isang organisasyon.

“The PNP should instead conduct profiling and surveillance on dishonorably discharged PNP and AFP personnel to keep track of their post-discharge activities including their lifestyle,” mariing pahayag ni Lacson.

Kung mamo-monitor umano ng PNP ang aktibidad ng mga ito, maraming krimen sa bansa ang mabibigyan ng solusyon, at marami ring krimen ang mapipigilan katulad ng kaliwa’t kanang pagpatay.

“In that way, they may be able to solve a lot of crimes, even preempt them,” dagdag pa ng mambabatas.

Lacson to PNP: Train Profiling, Surveillance on ‘Expelled’ Cops and Soldiers, Not Teachers

Instead of teachers’ groups, the Philippine National Police should train profiling and surveillance efforts on dishonorably discharged police and military personnel who have become guns for hire, Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson said Tuesday.

Lacson, who headed the PNP from 1999 to 2001, cited many cases of such expelled law enforcers being tagged as suspects in recent heinous crimes.

Focusing on these “rejects” – who are likely skilled with firearms and other weapons – can even help solve or even preempt crimes, he stressed.

“The PNP should instead conduct profiling and surveillance on dishonorably discharged PNP and AFP personnel to keep track of their post-discharge activities including their lifestyle,” he said.

“In that way, they may be able to solve a lot of crimes, even preempt them,” he added.

From the Inquirer: “We’re either overtaxed or underserved, or both,” said Lacson, who opened a can of worms this month when he discussed last-minute insertions of multibillion-peso allocations for the districts of favored lawmakers in the proposed P3.8-trillion budget for 2019.

From People’s Journal: Lacson practiced leadership by example when he headed the PNP from 1999 to 2001. Under his watch, the PNP became disciplined and efficient. This in turn earned Lacson and the PNP high approval marks from the public. “It is second to none. There is no substitute to it that I know of,” Lacson said of the principle of leadership by example.  Continue reading “📰 Editorial: Exemplary leadership [People’s Journal]”

Ping: Mga Militar sa BOC, Huwag na Sana Matukso

Huwag lang lapitan ng mga mapanukso.

Ito ang naging pahayag ni Senador at dating Philippine National Police (PNP) Chief Panfilo Lacson kaugnay sa mistulang pagtatalaga ng mga nasa hanay ng militar sa Bureau of Customs (BOC), makaraan ang eskandalo sa naipuslit na shabu.

Sa kanyang Twitter post, binanggit ni Lacson na noong dekada 1960, dati nang napangasiwaan ng militar ang BOC at naging maayos umano ang operasyon nito dahil hindi umubra ang mga tangkang panunuhol ng mga smugglers.

Nagkaaberya lamang umano ang operasyon ng ahensiya sa naturang dekada matapos na gumamit ng mga naggagandahang mga kababaihan ang mga nakikipagtransaksiyon sa mga ahensiya.

“In the early 60’s, some young, idealistic AFP officers were put in charge of the BOC operations. They learned fast, they couldn’t be bribed or intimidated. The smugglers used equally young, beautiful women to influence them.  The rest is history we don’t want to remember,” pagsisiwalat ni Lacson.

Lacson Cites Three-Pronged Solution vs Corruption at Customs

Learn from history, establish a focused counter-intelligence system to curb corruption, and prioritize leadership by example.

These can help the Bureau of Customs curb corruption without having to tap officers from the Armed Forces of the Philippines, Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson said Monday.

Lacson, a member of the Philippine Military Academy Class 1971, cited a lesson from the 1960s showing the use of idealistic AFP officers to run the BOC did not work, after the smuggling rings used women to sway them.

“In the early 60’s, some young, idealistic AFP officers were put in charge of the BOC operations. They learned fast, they couldn’t be bribed or intimidated. The smugglers used equally young, beautiful women to influence them. The rest is history we don’t want to remember,” Lacson said in a post on his Twitter account.

Ping: Na-promote at na-demote si Lapeña; Guerrero dapat magpakitang-gilas sa BOC

Promosyon pero demosyon.

Ito ang pagsasalarawan ni Senador Panfilo Lacson sa pagkakatalaga kay dating Bureau of Customs (BOC) Commissioner Isidro Lapeña bilang pinuno ng Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA), matapos ang kontrobersiyal na pagkakalusot ng tone-toneladang shabu.

Sinabi ni Lacson na bagama’t promosyon mula sa BOC ang bagong posisyon ni Lapeña bilang pinuno ng TESDA na tinuturing na Cabinet post, ito ay demosyon sa ibang aspeto.

“It may well be a promotion in rank and position, but definitely a demotion in trust and confidence,” ani Lacson.

Lacson: Incoming BOC Chief Has Big Boots to Fill

Newly appointed Bureau of Customs Commissioner Leonardo Rey Guerrero will have big boots to fill as he replaces the newly “promoted” Isidro Lapeña, Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson said Friday.

But Lacson also noted that while Lapeña was promoted in rank and position, his transfer to a new post may well be a demotion in trust and confidence.

“It may well be a promotion in rank and position, but definitely a demotion in trust and confidence. It’s a pity because save for the big shabu shipment that got away, apparently due to collusion between the drug syndicate and some low-level Customs officials, former Commissioner Lapeña was doing a good job proven by consistently exceeding the Bureau’s target collections,” Lacson said.

“Having said that, the President has once again shown zero tolerance as far as his war on drugs is concerned,” he added.

Medal of Valor walang katapat na mamamahaling relo

Para sa isang sundalo, pinakamahalaga na magawaran siya ng Medal of Valor bilang kapalit sa pagtatanggol at kabayanihan sa bayan kumpara sa mabigyan ng mga materyal na bagay na katulad ng mga mamahaling relo.

Ito ang naging pahayag ni Senador Panfilo Lacson, Chairman ng Senate Committee on Public Order and Illegal Drugs, na naging pinakarespetadong pinuno ng Philippine National Police at produkto ng Philippine Military Academy.

Ang naturang pahayag ay inilahad ni Lacson sa mga mamamahayag sa Senado, ilang araw matapos na mabalita ang balak umano ng Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte na bigyan ng relong tatak Rolex ang mga sundalong gagawaran ng Medal of Valor.
