The ‘Ninja Cops’ issue that continue to dominate the front pages of national and local newspapers after the Senate investigation unearthed the existence involved in the recycling and reselling of confiscated drugs and other abuses may result in the kicking out of some high ranking Philippine National Police officers suspected of having a hand in the shenanigans of their subordinates.
In a resolution prepared by lawmakers belonging to Makabayan party list bloc, the group asked for the resignation of PNP chief Oscar Albayalde and other officers to clear the way for a credible investigation of the irregularity.
President Duterte while in an official trip to Russia, also said two police Generals are involved in the ‘Ninja Cops’ activity.
Granting that Albayalde will listen to the clamor for him to resign, this does not mean that he is already free from being prosecuted.
Meanwhile, naming these policemen ‘Ninja Cops’ since the issue was known to the public may not do justice to the animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles often shortened to TMNT or Ninja Turtles that originated in an American comic book published by Mirage Studios in 1984 in Dover, New Hampshire.
The Ninja Turtles are four fictional teenaged anthropomorphic turtles named after Italian Renaissance artists. They were trained by their anthropomorphic rat sensei in the art of ninjutsu. From their home in the sewers of New York City, they battle petty criminals, evil overlords, mutated creatures, and alien invaders while attempting to remain hidden from society. They were created by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird and later made into movies and TV series by cable channel Nickelodeon.
They were called Ninja Turtles and superheroes to young movie followers as they fought criminals of all sorts. But how come that these ‘Ninja Cops’ are named after these four mutant characters when they do the opposite. If you ask me, I will call these ‘Ninja Cops’, ‘Bantay Salakay’ to be more precise and in fairness to real good Ninja!
With the discovery of some ‘Ninja Cops’ in the ranks of our law enforcers, it may now be easy for the police hierarchy to know the good, the bad, and the ugly in uniforms. For sure these captured ‘Ninja Cops’ will ‘sing’ to authorties who their accomplices are, just to save their necks or lessen their sins!
After the arrest of a police sergeant who is a brother of a ranking PNP officer in a drug-buy-bust operation by the Talomo police in front of the main campus of a university at Barrio Obrero, Wednesday evening, the Police Regional Office admitted that 10 police officers in the region are being monitored for their involvement in illegal drugs.
Brig. Gen. Marcelo Morales, PRO 11 director identified them as three ranking officers and seven non-commissioned officers.
“So I warned all the station commanders to closely monitor their personnel because they are responsible for their (illegal) activities,” Morales said.
If the PRO is sure of the involvement of these unnamed police officers in the illegal drugs, why not arrest them now instead of just monitoring them as their names are already in the PRO list!
The more they are on the loose, the more the illegal drug trade will continue to do havoc on innocent people and be a threat to the security of the state.
I would suggest to arrest them now and let them face the consequences of their acts.
Mexican Supreme Court Justice Eduardo Medina Mora resigned Thursday amid an investigation into claims he transferred millions of dollars in Britain and the United States.
Yes, this happened in Mexico not in our country where some people in the government know nothing about delicadeza. Yes, we may sometime hear them resign due to ill-gotten wealth just to save themselves from being prosecuted.
But in the long run, the government is still the loser because in some cases of ill-gotten wealth, the guilty ones are always the victors, forgiven for their sins, and even given elective positions in the government while enjoying the money they robbed from the people.
While some of them maybe dead by now, their families are the ones now living in luxury at the expense of the people’s money.
Under the Mexican Constitution, Mora’s act of resignation is due to ‘grave reason’. In other words, not a case of plunder!
