Ping sa PNP: Mga Nasibak na Pulis at Sundalo ang I-Profile, ‘Wag na Sina Ma’am at Sir

robber

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.

Ping sa PNP: 7 Pulis na Trigger-Happy, Sibakin Agad!

pakistantoday

Malinaw na pagpapakita ng hindi pagpapahalaga sa buhay ang ginawa ng pitong pulis na walang habas na nagpaputok ng kanilang baril nitong nakaraang Pasko at Bagong Taon, kung kaya’t wala nang pagkakataon pa para sila ay manatili sa serbisyo.

Ito ang naging panawagan ni Senador at dating Philippine National Police (PNP) Chief Panfilo M. Lacson sa kasalukuyang pamunuan ng ahensiya matapos na personal niyang malaman ang ginawa ng mga nabanggit na alagad ng batas.

Sa mensahe ng mambabatas sa kanyang Twitter account, ipinadama nito ang kanyang galit sa mga pulis dahil posibleng ang ginawa ng mga ito ay magdulot umano ng matinding kapahamakan o kaya ay kamatayan sa mga maaring matamaan ng bala.

“What if someone got hit and died, or paralyzed? Damn these scumbags! They have no purpose in life, really. Give them the boot ASAP, Chief,” saad ni Lacson.

Lacson: Trigger-Happy ‘Scumbag’ Cops Deserve Quick Boot

pakistantoday

No less than a quick boot will do for at least seven trigger-happy policemen who were caught firing their guns during the holiday season, Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson said.

Lacson, who went hard after rogue cops when he headed the Philippine National Police from 1999 to 2001, said these cops are “scumbags” who showed no regard for life.

“What if someone got hit and died, or paralyzed? Damn these scumbags! They have no purpose in life, really. Give them the boot ASAP, Chief,” he said in a post on his Twitter account Tuesday evening.

He also stressed the need for the PNP to sustain its internal cleansing efforts, pointing out that rogue cops “do not deserve to stay a minute longer in the police service.”

On Abuses by Some PNP Personnel Amid Upcoming Hefty Pay Hike

Starting January 2019, when the salary increase of policemen takes effect in compliance with Joint Resolution No. 1, it bears watching if ‘kotong cops’ will disappear from the street corners and dark alleys and instead focus on their job of protecting and serving the people.

I have high hopes that it will materialize, since with all the benefits and unprecedented salary hike accorded to the military and uniformed personnel, thanks to the strong political will of President Rodrigo Duterte who almost singlehandedly pushed for the same, there is every reason for right-thinking police officers to love and secure their profession, not to mention to be motivated enough to show a debt of gratitude to their Commander-in-Chief who made an almost impossible legislation to pass.

Looking back, I can’t help but realize how we – starting from our cadetship in the Philippine Military Academy, all the way to retirement from the uniformed service, were fed, clothed, sheltered, and provided with all the logistical support and more – should have no reason whatsoever not to give back all we can, even our lives to government and the Filipino taxpayers who spent for all that we needed.

That is why it is deplorable, to say the least, when we hear of ranking military and police officers who abuse their positions, steal government funds, and even the meal allowances of their men.
