Cops hooked on drugs

09:39 PM October 06, 2011

Based on intelligence reports, a large number of new policemen, even senior officers, in the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao—specifically in Lamitan, Basilan, Shariff Aguak, Maguindanao, Patikul, Sulu—are hooked on prohibited drugs, including shabu. Civilians are flabbergasted to see these policemen frequently visiting drug dens even in broad daylight.

Director General Nicanor Bartolome of the Philippine National Police should look into these reports and order the dismissal of these scalawag policemen and officers. Many policemen are now drug addicts, and more and more of them are being dragged into that vicious trap of addiction. Bartolome should move fast, before it’s too late.
