THE PNP CHIEF (BATO DELA ROSA) CALLS ON THE PUBLIC TO STOP USING THE TERM “TOKHANG FOR RANSOM” AS IT IS HURTING THE POLICE (IMAGE)
SO, WHAT TERM ARE WE GOING TO USE? TOKHANG – KIDNAP – FRIENDLY -RANSOM?
It is what it is! You have a police force that you cannot control and a president who condones and openly protecting his police even if they are found guilty of murder. Did he not say that?
Your president, without batting an eyelash proclaimed to the whole world that he is ready to defend them and will side with them as long as they continue his so-called war on drugs! He may not implicitly or directly gave the order, but clearly, he opened the Pandora box.
When someone with an authority hinted, implied, or make a veiled threat, especially coming from a president’s mouth; the highest authority of the land – “that is surely an order; a president mouthing his thoughts or opinion is as good as a policy statement.”
The PNP Chief may also be guilty of inciting his people to such nefarious activities; he must have forgotten that in one of his speeches – he even asked the audience “to burn the houses” of the suspected drug lords in that province. “Kung anu ang sinasabi ng mataas, ginagawa ng nasa ibaba.”
Now we have a police force -mercenaries, who takes orders on cues and hints, what can we expect?
PNP Image? The PNP as an organisation cannot even resolve or at the very least put a stop to the vigilante killings; adding this (TOKHANG-KFR) incident -a foreign national (Korean) ended up dead. What image are we talking about?
