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.

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.

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.”

“In line with the continued efforts of the PNP to reform and modernize, we are thankful to Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson for filing SB 1898, which when passed into law, shall vest the PNP with full responsibility and accountability in training and honing our new recruits and personnel as they prepare to enter the police service.

“The PNP has long been appealing to our legislators for Congress to revisit the law. It is high time the PNP take full responsibility in training our own personnel.

“Each year the PNP is authorized by Napolcom to recruit an average of 10,000 personnel to replenish the ranks of personnel separated due to retirement and attrition.”

Lacson Pushes Transfer of Police Recruits’ Training to PNP

To make sure its new recruits learn to uphold the law instead of violating it, it is high time the Philippine National Police take full responsibility – and accountability – for their training.

Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson, who headed the PNP from 1999 to 2001, stressed this over the weekend, adding this should greatly help in the police force’s internal cleansing.

“In past months, we have seen how police officers, many of them non-commissioned ones with the ranks of PO1 and PO2, had been involved in heinous crimes. It’s about time we revisit the law to make the PNP the premier educational and training institution for our policemen and policewomen,” Lacson said.

Lacson is to sponsor this coming week Senate Bill 1898, which amends Sections 66 and 67 of Republic Act 6975. The present law mandates the Philippine Public Safety College to train police personnel.
