On the Fatal Police Shooting of Army Officers in Sulu: Speedy but Thorough Probe is Critical

Image: CTTO

A speedy but thorough determination of the facts that led to the tragic shooting of four Army officers by police in Sulu is critical and cannot be emphasized enough.

It is wise and proper that both Philippine National Police Chief P/Gen. Archie Gamboa and Armed Forces of the Philippines Chief of Staff Gen. Felimon Santos Jr. have agreed that the National Bureau of Investigation take full control of the criminal investigation, and allow the evidence to dictate the findings.

But the NBI’s investigation results notwithstanding, and more than making fully accountable all those responsible for the incident, the ground commanders of both sides must be in full control of the situation to avoid an escalation of the situation.

Our security forces already have their hands full in their fight against their common adversaries such as terrorism and insurgency in Mindanao. Allowing disunity in any form would give the enemy an unwanted advantage that could prove fatal for our nation.

Ping: Kriminal Lang ang Lagot sa PNP Fitness Policy

Magandang balita para sa publiko, at masama naman para sa mga kriminal ang fitness policy na inapatupad ng liderato ng Philippine National Police (PNP).

Ayon kay Senador at dating PNP Chief Panfilo Lacson na unang nagpatupad nitong programa sa institusyon, nangangahulugan ito na magiging mas handa ang mga pulis sa pagtugis sa mga kriminal.

Dahil sa nabanggit na programa, kikitid na mga lugar na magagalawan ng mga kriminal at sa kabilang banda ay magpapabuti sa pisikal na katawan ng mga pulis.

“If we have policemen and policewomen who are physically and morally fit, everybody indeed wins. Only the bad guys will lose,” banggit ni Lacson.

Lacson: PNP’s Fitness Policy a Win-Win for All – Except the Criminals

The fitness policy adopted by the Philippine National Police leadership is a win-win situation for all – except for the criminals.

Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson stressed this Tuesday as he lauded the PNP, which he headed from 1999 to 2001, for keeping alive what he considers his best legacy to the institution.

“I would like to think the best legacy I left in the police institution was the discipline that I instilled in my policemen who I enjoined to stop huffing and puffing with big bulging tummies. Instead, they maintained a maximum waistline of 34 inches so they would be trim and thin when they chased robbers and other criminals,” Lacson said.
