I am deeply saddened that the United Nations has not observed and investigated before haphazardly taking side on the issue of what is Senator de Lima has dubbed as ‘Extra-judicial Killings’. She should not consider the PNP’s statistics to be all EJKs because investigations have to be conducted before branding. Here are among the most controversial cases that I also condemned:
And the PNP are immediately acting upon those policemen who were involved in such questionable ‘performance of duties’ , in fact the two who has shot killed two arrested drug pushers (father and son in Pasay) inside the precinct are relieved of duty.
News about Pasay Drug Pusher killed in precinct:
The policemen who got involved in the killing of a pusher couple are also relieved as well as the others involved in their trade on that same police station. They are alleged ninja cops who were asking this couple to sell drugs for these corrupt policemen. The said couple is asked to remit drug money but just killed maybe to SILENCE them. That is of course not a legitimate police operation but the PNP is prejudged as if they are condone. Taking the side of the pusher’s family, I better not risk talking to another policeman on this issue, because we really do not know who is good or bad at all unless the government has finished t task of eliminating the ROTTEN tomatoes on the shelf.
Again, this is not an issue to be discussed outside the country because the victims and the suspects are all Filipinos – and there is NO CONDONATION happening, I am challenging a surveyor from the United Nations to interview a million of my fellow-countrymen of what they can say about the issue – if many distrust the government and think that the administration is being UNFAIR then I suppose that is the only time they have to GET INVOLVE in the issue.
I agree with the President’s opinion that before what is prevalent in the daily newspapers broadsheets or tabloids here in the Philippines are INNOCENTS being victimized by rapist, robber-killers, carnapper-killers, taxi drivers robbed of just nearly a thousand-peso earnings and killed, the villains who are believed to be drug users:
- A months-old baby raped. A parent killed by his addict child, toddler raped – stabbed with a bottle in her vag---, an animal raped by a man, teenager robbed of cellphone and killed in an instant
Why the UN and the CHR is not so loudly heard (if they meddle on that unquestionable HUMAN RIGHTS violations – the right to live by the innocent victims)? Now, it is the reverse. The addicts who have guns and knives to kill their victims like butchering a pig or chicken are now on the headlines…what needs help from the CHR? The INNOCENT victims whom they had spared on meddling or those (legitimately) killed addicts and pushers in police operations. Again, illegitimate police operations or abuse of authority are exempted here, they are dealt with accordingly .
The NCRPO Chief Albayalde reminded us in an interview that the moment suspects arrested are in precinct their handcuffs are removed to put behind bars. In the circumstances, as we all can see one of the suspects has a big body-built (tall and muscled) - I am not implying that the two policemen are not capable of erring nor they are not guilty BUT we have to listen and to look at both sides to give FAIR judgment. NCRPO chief has reiterated once a policeman face an intimidating situation wherein the villains are physically of advantage or in an encounter place where the criminal is impossible to see hiding or the place is too dim) the tendency is for him to guard his own life especially if they are to attack or go near the target – there is no way the cop will know if there is any gun aiming at him. Since drug suspects (especially the users) are not in the right frame of mind, if we are in the policemen’s shoe and we have families to go home to after our life-threatening job – who would not want to be sure of LIFE?!
