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.
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.
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.
