Paalala ni Ping sa Publiko: Pag Nakakita ng Sibilyan na may Sukbit na Baril, Isumbong Agad sa Pulis!

Kailangan nang buklatin ang mga nilalaman ng mga umiiral na batas ng bansa tungkol sa pagmamay-ari at pagdadala ng baril sa labas ng tahanan, bunga na rin ng paparami na insidente ng pamamaril.

Bukod dito, binabanggit din ni Senador at dating Philippine National Police Chief Panfilo Lacson na kailangan nang ibahin ng publiko ang kanilang pananaw sa mga sibilyan na nakikitaang nagdadala ng baril sa labas ng tahanan.

“Presently, when we see persons in civilian attire with firearms bulging from their pants, we just assume they are police or military personnel. It should be the other way around. If we see someone in civilian attire and with a firearm, we should instinctively assume the person is up to no good, and report him or her to the nearest police station,” pahayag ni Lacson.

Binigyang halimbawa ni Lacson ang mga ginagawa ng awtoridad sa ibayong dagat na maski mga pulis, depende sa lugar, ay hindi nakikitang nagdadala o may sukbit na baril sa baywang katulad lamang ng kadalasang nakikita sa Hong Kong.

Lacson: Time to Revisit Mindset, Laws on Firearms after Latest Shooting

A string of recent shootings, including the killing of a policeman along Epifanio delos Santos Avenue (EDSA) on March 26, should prompt changes in the public mindset as well as legislation regarding the possession and carrying of firearms outside residence, Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson said.

Lacson said the killing of Police Senior Master Sergeant Solomon Cugay shows gunmen can act with impunity because of loose firearm laws as well as the public mindset that people with firearms in civilian attire are lawmen.

“Presently, when we see persons in civilian attire with firearms bulging from their pants, we just assume they are police or military personnel. It should be the other way around. If we see someone in civilian attire and with a firearm, we should instinctively assume the person is up to no good, and report him or her to the nearest police station,” Lacson, who headed the Philippine National Police from 1999 to 2001, said in an interview on DZMM radio on Wednesday.

“Every day, we hear of someone being gunned down by motorcycle-riding assailants. A policeman is the latest victim in a growing list that includes politicians, traders and even lawyers,” he added.

Matatapos na ang kalituhang dinaranas ng publiko sa pagtawag sa ranggo ng mga kapulisan at sundalo dahil ganap nang nilagdaan ng Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte ang batas na nagtatama sa mga ito.

Ang Republic Act 11200 na para sa PNP rank classification ay kabilang sa mga pinakahuling batas na nilagdaan ng Pangulo na una nang itinulak at inisponsor ni Senador at dating PNP Chief Panfilo Lacson sa Senado.

Sa ilalim ng naturang batas, klinaro na ang mga ranggo ng PNP sa mga katugmang katungkulan ng mga ito.

“This measure eliminates confusion on how our law enforcers must be addressed, and brings our policemen closer to the populace. More importantly, this allows for better coordination between the PNP and other law enforcement units in countering terrorism and other threats to national security,” paliwanag ni Lacson.

Filipinos stand to benefit twofold from a new law authored by Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson that provides for rank classification in the Philippine National Police.

President Rodrigo Duterte signed Republic Act 11200, which standardizes the way PNP officers are called, into law last Feb. 8.

“This measure eliminates confusion on how our law enforcers must be addressed, and brings our policemen closer to the populace. More importantly, this allows for better coordination between the PNP and other law enforcement units in countering terrorism and other threats to national security,” said Lacson, who headed the PNP from 1999 to 2001.

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

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 kaliwaโ€™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.
