All those killings... !

THE political opposition [YELLOW/MAGDALO/2016 LOSERS] lie to us and the international community that in the Philippine war on drugs, all killings are committed by the authorities, extrajudicially--bypassing the court systems. The YELLOW/MAGDALO/2016 LOSERS flaunt here and abroad that all the poor are killed in the Philippine war on drugs. Human Rights groups believe, hyperventilate.

Why is the government’s campaign against illegal drugs concentrated in poor communities? To which President Rodrigo Duterte counters that there’s no shabu trading in rich villages like Barangay Forbes Park or Barangay Ayala Alabang. “No one is seen vending [shabu] in Forbes Park. The [rich] there are not into shabu. People there are into cocaine or heroin.” Duterte said in a news conference, held at the wake of Senior Inspector Mark Garcia who was killed by drug dealers in a buy-bust operation in a poor community during the weekend.

“Cocaine and heroin are not as destructive as shabu because cocaine and heroin are manufactured out of the derivatives of poppy plant, like marijuana. So it is not as destructive to the brain as meth, which is a combination of a deadly mix of chemicals.... The poor mostly use shabu or methamphetamine hydrochloride, which does not sell in well-off communities.

Criticized that his war on drugs is anti-poor, Duterte said that the anti-illegal drug campaign exempts no one. “Just because you are poor, you expect to be excused from arrest? Rich or poor, I do not give a shit,... My order is to destroy if you’re in the illegal drug business.”

Shabu is illegally smuggled in by criminal Filipinos and aliens by the containerful. Shabu is plentiful, accessible, and affordable to the poor. Just like sari-sari stores--sellers, middlemen, child-runners, buyers, addicts are in the poor community. The rich do not have sari-sari stores in their subdivisions. The ones who indulge know where to go for their expensive cocaine. 

They YELLOW/MAGDALO/2016 LOSERS expect President Duterte who’s been in charge only one year, to end what has grown into a narco-politics for many administrations. They expect Duterte who’s been in charge only one year, to broadcast the identity of narcotics politicians and kingpins and get them to court. These same politicians, whose families for generations have been running the Philippines, never got to identify these narcotic kingpins; never got to bring these criminals to court. 

The survey of 1,200 Filipinos by Social Weather Stations (SWS) showed that those surveyed have been brainwashed by what the political opposition [YELLOW/MAGDALO 2016 LOSERS] have been spreading in their lies, locally and destroying the Philippine reputation internationally. The YELLOW/MAGDALO 2016 LOSERS have succeeded in convincing the 4, 5, 6 segments of society that all deaths were done on order of the President.

Senior Superintendent Adelio Castillo, Chief of DIDM Case Monitoring Division has the stats: 6,129 resolved cases, 5,731 (93.51%) were found to be non-drug related homicides from July 1, 2016 – September 15, 2017. The PNP has filed 3,475 separate criminal charges against arrested suspects involved in solved slay cases under investigation by police units. In addition, 2,654 more criminal charges were filed against identified suspects in slay cases who remain at-large and are now the subject of manhunt operations.

The PNP considers a case as “solved” when at least one suspect is arrested and charged in court, while cases are considered as cleared when a suspect or suspects are identified and cases had been filed while follow-up operations for their arrest are underway. Records culled by the PNP Directorate for Investigation & Detective Management indicate a total of 6,129 resolved cases out of the 15,911 homicide cases investigated by the PNP.

Citing data generated from the Crime Incident Reporting & Analysis System (CIRAS) of DIDM, Castillo explained the 5,731 non-drug-related homicides stemmed from various motives and circumstances such as arguments and misunderstanding, personal grudge, land dispute, love triangle, family dispute or “Rido”, atrocities by threat groups, business rivalry, road rage, unpaid debt, indiscriminate firing, revenge, to get rid of an enemy, business intrigues, competitors, love triangles, drug connivance, debtors, drug addict refusing to pay, jealousy, one-upsmanship, drunken bouts, love, joy killing. Hired killers, and not PNP do extrajudicial killings. Watch that the YELLOW/MAGDALO 2016 LOSERS will try to blame frat hazing deaths on Duterte. 

More than 3,800 people have been killed during President Duterte’s 15-month-old crackdown, all during police operations. Human rights groups overlook murders attributed to shadowy vigilantes. Police and the government vehemently reject those allegations and accuse critics of exaggerating the death toll for political gain. The death toll in Pres. Duterte’s fight against crime and drugs, has caused international alarm, although domestic polls have shown Filipinos are largely supportive of the tough measures. 

The opposition had their chance at hysterics on the deaths of a 17-year-old student and his 14-year old companion who were out at 1: a.m. holding up a taxi driver with a deadly weapon. In both teen killings, however, police said the victims had resisted arrest. Both cases are still under investigation and the cases have not been closed. No conclusions yet. 

Duterte has several times brandished what he called a file on 6,000 alleged drug lords at the center of the country’s trade. In the SWS survey, 74 percent of respondents said they wanted him to make that list public. Duterte enjoys huge support among working class Filipinos. The Philippines, extremely sensitive about foreign criticism of its drugs war, last week accused the West of bias, hypocrisy and interference.

Disloyalty

By REY O. ARCILLA | January 23, 2018
‘Locsin should just concentrate on learning and doing his job instead of contradicting his President which smacks of disloyalty. If he can’t do that, he should resign out of delicadeza, that is, if Digong has indeed compelling reasons not to fire him.’
