    The new WBO Welterweight Champion, Senator Manny Pacquiao, paid a courtesy call on President Rodrigo Duterte at the Malacañang Palace on Monday after a successful fight against American boxer Jessie Vargas in Las Vegas on November 6.

    The president congratulated the “pambansang kamao” who gave honor to the country once again.

    Pacquiao gave a black and gold shirt to Duterte who in turn commended the boxer for defending PNP Chief Director General Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa regarding the free boxing tickets and all-expense paid trip to Las Vegas that he received from the people’s champ.

    “You were right in defending Bato. What you donated [was] your skill. It is a donation…And you can afford to pay the expenses, it is commensurate with your wealth. There is no criminal liability,” Duterte told Pacquiao.  — UNTV News and Rescue

    PNP chief tags critics of admin’s war on drugs as “ingrates”

    MANILA, Philippines — After expressing dismay before members of the media on Monday, PNP Chief Ronald dela Rosa responded to critics of the government’s war on drugs.

    “Yung pulis ko na sinaksak. May Police Caloocan pa ako na nabaril sa ulo nung inaresto yung adik na wanted, patay diretso. Hindi niyo pinabalik-balik para naman sana bigyang hustisya yung pagkamatay ng pulis ko,” said Dela Rosa.

    (There was a cop who was stabbed. There was a Caloocan policeman who was shot in the head by a drug addict. The cop died on the spot. You did not report it in the news repeatedly so we could attain justice for the deaths of my cops.)

    “You can criticize us to high heavens, but I can tell you straight sa mata: Ingrato kayo. Nakinabang din kayo sa peace and order na dinulot ng war on drugs. You can criticize us… Ingrato kayo. Mga anak mo, pumapasok na walang kaba, walang takot dahil bihira na ang krimen sa kalsada,”  he added.

    (You can criticize us to high heavens, but I can tell you straight in the eye: You are ingrates. You benefit as well to the peace and order that this war on drugs bring. You can criticize us. You’re all ingrates. Your children are going to school without worries, and without fear, because crimes now seldom happen in the streets.)

    According to Dela Rosa, he is not pointing at a particular person but to all critics of the police’s campaign against illegal drugs.

    The PNP chief also believes in the truthfulness of the result of the survey conducted by the Social Weather Station or SWS.

    The SWS surveyed the public on the quote –the rich drug pushers are not being killed, but only the poor ones – end of quote.

    “Totoo yun, ilan yung mayaman na involved sa street pushing so kapag mag conduct ang police ng buy bust operation so most likely yung mahirap na nag push ng droga ang makuha. We are talking about numbers mas maraming mahirap involved sa drug pushing,”said the chief.

    (It’s true. Some wealthy people are involved in street pushing so if the police conduct a buy-bust operation so most likely the poor ones were the usual targets. We are talking about numbers, there are poorer involved in drug pushing.)

    Dela Rosa also responded to issues that the police do not kill wealth drug pushers.

    “Mahirap ba si Parojinog? Mahirap ba si mayor ng Albuera Leyte? si Espinosa, mahirap ba yan? Hindi naman, kaya nga, criticize ng criticize hindi naman ina-analyze yung data,” he said.

    (Were the Parojinogs poor? Was Albuera Leyte mayor poor? Was Espinosa poor? They were not. That’s why those who always criticize do not analyze the data.)

    Dela Rosa has once again argued that deaths in their operations could not be avoided as the police are not in control of the situation, whether it is the drug suspect resisting arrest or the police who is being fought back by the drug suspect. — Mon Jocson | UNTV News & Rescue

    Relieved Caloocan cops undergo retraining and reorientation

    by UNTV   |   Posted on Monday, October 2nd, 2017

    MANILA, Philippines — PNP Chief Director General Ronald dela Rosa does not deny that there are still a few erring cops in the Philippine National Police (PNP).

    “Nilulunok ko yung pride ko every time magkakamali tayo. Hindi ako mahiya na umiyak sa harap ng tao kung ako ay nasasaktan(I swallow my pride every time we make a mistake. I am not embarrassed to cry in public when I am hurting),” said the PNP chief.

    But he also could not contain his dismay over what he calls “biased” reporting by media that creates an unfavorable image of the police.

    “Yung pulis ko na sinaksak, may police Caloocan pa ako na nabaril sa ulo nung inaresto yung adik na wanted, patay diretso. Hindi naman pinabalik-balik ninyo, hindi niyo pinabalik-balik para naman sana bigyang hustisya yung pagkamatay ng pulis ko. Eh bakit itong kina Kian, Carl halos buong programa yun na lang lumalabas? Paulit-ulit,” said Dela Rosa.

    (What about the cop who was stabbed, and another Caloocan police who was shot  dead in the head by a wanted drug addict? You did not even cover their stories long enough to bring justice to my officer’s death. But with Kian and Carl the whole program is almost all about them; repeatedly.)

    Despite the controversies, Dela Rosa remains confident in the performance of the Caloocan police in response to the government’s war on drugs.

    “I’m still very proud of my men of what they have done to Caloocan. Kahit pa na sabihin ninyo na yung mga tao ko ay tarantado, sabihin niyo yan, (Even if you say that my men are bastards) but I’m still very proud of them,” said the chief.

    A total of 1,000 Caloocan cops have been relieved from their post over alleged corruption and controversies facing their ranks including the death of minors Kian delos Santos, Carl Angelo Arnaiz and Reynaldo de Guzman.

    Monday marked the beginning of their one-month retraining and reorientation program which will center on ethics building and discipline.

    Dela Rosa has made it clear that the retraining does not mean a punishment but a move to further boost the morale of the relieved cops and make them better persons.

    “Ang purpose ng training na ito ay para gawin kayong mas maka-Dios, mas makabansa at mas makatao (The purpose of this training is to make you more God-fearing, nationalistic and humane)” said Dela Rosa addressing the dismissed Caloocan policemen. — Rajel Adora | UNTV News & Rescue

    SPO1 Junior Hilario of Caloocan police, laid to rest at the Libingan ng mga Bayani

    by UNTV   |   Posted on Thursday, September 21st, 2017

    The Philippine National Police (PNP) gave him a hero’s burial.

    MANILA, Philippines — A hero, a father, a friend. This was how SPO1 Junior Hilario was described by his relatives and friends.

    Hilario was the Caloocan cop who died during an anti-illegal drugs operation last September 8.

    From his home in Bagumbong Caloocan, his relatives, friends, and colleagues joined in bringing his remains at the Libingan ng mga Bayani.

    The Philippine National Police (PNP) gave him a hero’s burial.

    Hilario’s wife thanked those who helped them after the death of her husband.

    “He went to work, and house only. That’s what he did. When he goes home, he does the laundry and cooks for me,” said Hilda Hilario, widow of the slain cop.

    “Because I am not allowed to be exhausted as I already suffered stroked,” she said.

    The chief of the Caloocan City police hopes that although their rank is facing various controversies due to the deaths of minors, the public will not judge them.

    “We are appealing to the public to understand the job of the policemen. Like what happened to him, he died while performing his duties,” said Caloocan chief PSSupt. Jemar Modequillo.

    The NCRPO has previously ordered the relief of Caloocan policemen and they are expected to be replaced by cops from Davao city.

    Meanwhile, PNP chief Ronald dela Rosa has given recognition to the cop who was stabbed after drug suspect resisted arrest.

    PO1 Ronald Anicete was awarded with a “Medalya ng Sugatang Magiting” after his life was put at risk while performing his duty.

    The PNP chief also plans to promote him to the rank of PO2.

    Aside from the recognition, Anicete also received a 9mm gun, and cash gift. — Rajel Adora | UNTV News & Rescue
