Who’s doing more careful, thorough job in drug war?
Sen. Bong Go has become so arrogant, impatiently urging Vice President Leni Robredo to disclose her findings. He says drug pushers are the ones who should be scared, not the Duterte administration.
Really, drug pushers should be scared? It was under Duterte appointees Nicanor Faeldon and Isidro Lapeña that billions worth of shabu were smuggled under the nose of the Bureau of Customs.
The two former Customs commissioners were simply reappointed to other posts. Who were arrested and prosecuted in these cases? No one but the whistle-blower.
Unlike Go and his master, the Vice President carefully thinks and analyzes the situation before speaking her mind. She does not promise that a problem as serious as drugs can be solved in six months.
She does not make easy threats such as “I will kill you if you destroy my country,” but tries to know what the real situation is — how many are really affected by drugs, who are the big drug lords in the list, what are the programs/projects of other local and foreign agencies that would complement the government’s drug war.
