Unfair game

By

As impunity goes, the murder of Rubylita Garcia ranks way up there. Garcia was a 52-year-old reporter who had worked for Remate for more than 20 years.

Idiots in the force?

It goes by a dry, innocuous title—Revised Police Operational Procedures Manual 2013 edition—the sort that makes the eyes glaze over and calls to mind reams of the most banal rules, directives and instructions, all the “should” and “should not,” the “must” and “must not,” that make up the nitty-gritty of everyday police work.

AFP, police have no role in campus security

We are gravely concerned about recent reports about more school-campus crimes targeting students and teachers. There should be a thorough investigation into these crimes, and no efforts should be spared to catch and prosecute the people behind them.

Covering up, or clueless

Another explosion has occurred, this time on Monday on busy Sinsuat Avenue in Cotabato City, but the questions regarding the July 26 blast in Cagayan de Oro are still unanswered.

Wash it out

With unusual speed, the Philippine National Police has concluded that the deaths of the Ozamiz Gang leader and his henchman last week were probably the result of a “rubout.” PNP Director General Alan Purisima said administrative charges have been filed against 14 policemen implicated in the extrajudicial killings, including a superintendent.

There’s the rubout

By

Police chief Alan Purisima had some interesting things to say during his press conference last weekend. Reacting to a rash of media reports showing cops to have been involved in rubouts and sundry wrongdoing, he lamented the world being turned on its head. “With so many stories coming out, even members of the media are unwittingly being used because they are fed false information. The criminal is becoming the hero.”

Protection

The Philippine National Police is currently laboring under a bad image, no thanks to a number of its officers and men who have managed to make the word “cop” seem synonymous to crime.

Rub it in

The circumstances behind the deaths of two criminal gang leaders in the hands of their police escorts, last Monday in Laguna, are an offensive cliché: the supposed attempt to escape, the alleged reaching after the police escorts’ guns, the reported swift and deadly reaction of the policemen. To use the language of the street: “Bumenta na ’yan!”

I was dumbstruck by a couple of stories last Tuesday.

Rubout

President Aquino’s decision to adopt the findings of a special inquiry by the National Bureau of Investigation into the Jan. 6 killing of 13 men in Atimonan, Quezon, should make a dent on the culture of impunity that has been fostered by the wider culture of violence and human rights abuse in the country. Agreeing with the report that the deaths were a result of summary execution and not a shootout, the President ordered the filing of multiple-murder charges against the police and military personnel involved.

Question of justice, not a legal issue

The Union of People’s Lawyers in Mindanao (UPLM) condemns the violent dispersal by the Davao City police of Typhoon “Pablo” survivors who massed up at the Department of Social Welfare and Development Regional Office in Davao City, to demand the immediate release of relief goods due them. The excessive use of force on the disaster victims, which included the use of snipers and high-powered rifles, defies legal and moral justification.

Woman terrorized by motorbike riders

Fort Knox, a US bullion depository, is perhaps the safest place on earth where loads of precious metals and gold reserves are being kept, and with its impenetrable 22-ton door, one can have complete peace of mind about its safety.
