    PNP Chief wants Espenido to stay in Ozamiz

    by UNTV News   |   Posted on Wednesday, August 30th, 2017

    PNP Chief Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa already signed the order for the transfer of Police Chief Inspector Jovie Espenido to Iloilo City.

    But if the PNP Chief will be asked, Espenido should stay in Ozamiz.

    “If I have my way, I prefer him to stay in Ozamiz to finish the problem there, if permitted its best that he stay there,” Dela Rosa said.

    He added that the people of Ozamiz is pleading to him for Espenido to stay.

    The PNP Chief is also worried because the situation in Ozamiz is not yet stable due to the threat of the Parojinogs.

    Dela Rosa believes that Mayor Jed Mabilog is doing all he can do to fight illegal drugs that is why there is no urgency for Espenido to be sent to Iloilo City.

    Meanwhile, based on Republic Act 6975, Espenido cannot be appointed as Iloilo City Police Chief.

    Only police officials with rank of senior superintendent can be appointed as police chief in highly urbanized city.

    But according to Dela Rosa, the President’s directive must prevail.

    “In every rule there is an exemption, we can exempt that for the purpose only because it’s a presidential directive,” Dela Rosa said.

    Espenido will be assigned as OIC of Iloilo City police pending the processing of his promotion. – Mon Jocson | UNTV News and Rescue

    Most Filipinos support admin’s anti-drug war despite awareness of EJKs — Pulse Asia

    by UNTV   |   Posted on Tuesday, October 17th, 2017

    PULSE ASIA SURVEY

    MANILA, Philippines — Eight in every 10 Filipinos interviewed by the Pulse Asia survey nationwide support the anti-drug war of the Duterte administration. Two percent is unsupportive while the remaining percentage is indecisive. The survey was taken from September 24 to 30 2017.

    However, though many support the anti-drug war, 73% from all areas and classes believe in extrajudicial killings (EJKs) while the campaign is being implemented.

    This percentage increased from the 67% in June 2017.

    Many Filipinos are also aware of the case of Kian delos Santos, the 17-year old boy who was killed in a questionable anti-illegal drug operation by some members of the Northern Police District on August 16.

    Seventy-six percent also expressed concern about the possibility that the case of Kian might happen to them or their families because of the anti-drug war.

    The Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Director General Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa admitted that there are those who were killed in the anti-drug war but these are not EJKs.

    “Critics keep on labeling the casualties as EJKs to the public. EJK, EJK so that is what the people think. Those who die in the drug, we don’t deny that. However [it becomes different because] we don’t share the same meaning when we say EJK,” said Dela Rosa.

    President Duterte has been saying he is unfazed by ratings and will continue working to deliver what he promised to the Filipinos.

    “Now, the ratings, though I would get zero, I don’t care. I will still work because that is what I promised. If I die or be imprisoned because of that, I’m sorry. What matters is that I’m satisfied after fulfilling what I promised for the Philippines, that is my personal satisfaction,” said the president.  — Rosalie Coz | UNTV News and Rescue

    Nationwide crime rate drops by 7.8% — PNP

    by UNTV   |   Posted on Thursday, October 5th, 2017

    MANILA, Philippines — According to the Philippine National Police Directorate for Investigation and Detective Management (PNP-DIDM), the latest data on the country’s crime rate shows a significant decrease of 7.8% or a total of 28,235.

    The Crime Analysis Center of the PNP said this was based on data from January to August 2017 compared to the same period in 2016

    In 2016, the nationwide crime rate almost reached 400,000 but the number dropped to more than 350,000 in 2017.

    Index crime rate which refers to carnapping, murder, homicide, physical injury, theft, robbery, and rape, also decreased by 21.38%.

    In Metro Manila, index crime rate dropped from more than 15,000 in 2016 to more than 12,000 this year.

    The non-index crime rate also decreased by 2.55% or less than 7,000 from almost 300,000 in 2016.

    Non-index crime rate is classified as violations of special laws such as illegal drugs, violence against women and children, traffic code, firearms and illegal gambling

    “Yung (the) petty crimes, mostly the perpetrators niyan (of these) are those wired into drugs. So when we conducted the focus campaign on illegal drugs, there were lesser crime incidents na nangyayari sa (that were happening in the) community,” said PNP PIO PCSupt. Dionardo Carlos.

    Meanwhile, the PNP vowed to focus on solving “riding in tandem” crimes.

    In the command conference last Tuesday, PNP Chief Ronald Bato dela Rosa issued a directive to all regional directors to solve the problem concerning riding in tandems.

    Dela Rosa said, he will not think twice to relieve police officials who will fail to act on the matter — Mon Jocson | UNTV News & Rescue

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

    by UNTV   |   Posted on Tuesday, October 3rd, 2017

    IMAGE_UNTV_NEWS_100317_BATO

    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
