LP, Senate majority link up on drug killings

Published

By Mario Casayuran

The Senate minority bloc linked up Monday with the majority bloc of Senate President Aquilino Pimentel III in facing up to the reality that alleged extra judicial killings (EJKs) under the Duterte administration appear to be spinning out of control.

The senators pause for a photo before the opening of the second regular session of the 17th Congress at the Senate yesterday. Seated, from left, are: Senators Cynthia Villar, Nancy Binay, Franklin Drilon, Ralph Recto, Senate President Aquilino Pimentel III, Vicente Sotto, Loren Legarda, Grace Poe, Risa Hontiveros, (standing) Richard Gordon, Miguel Zubiri, Panfilo Lacson, Gringo Honasan, Edgardo Angara Jr., JV Ejercito, Emmanuel Pacquiao, (third row) Joel Villanueva, Benigno ‘Bam’ Aquino, Francis Escudero, and Sherwin Gatchalian.

Whether or not the opposition Liberal Party (LP) is politicizing the killing of Kian de los Santos, 17, the fact remains that 81 persons were killed in  anti-illegal drug operations in  a matter of three days in Bulacan, Manila and the Camanava area is “a matter of national concern,” Sen. Francis Pangilinan, LP president, said.

Critics of the Duterte administration had claimed that there are more than 7,000 persons listed as casualties in alleged anti-illegal drugs operations or EJKs since last year but police authorities claimed the actual casualty statistics in legitimate police operations was  over 2,000.

Although the Senate majority bloc belatedly woke up to the increasing number of supposed drug addicts and pushers killed since last year that has placed the Philippines in international spotlight, Pangilinan said it is time for the Senate as an institution to uphold its constitutional check and balance function.

Senators belonging to the majority bloc met Sunday night based on the call of Pimentel to address the Kian killing, other EJKs and the ability of drug syndicates to smuggle in with ease tons of ‘’shabu’’ (crystal meths) at various ports, particularly Manila’s waterfront.

Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson, chairman of the Senate public order and illegal drugs committee, had said his committee might be tasked through a resolution to investigate the Kian de los Santos killing although he is of the opinion that the Department of Justice (DoJ) and the Internal Affairs Service (IAS) of the Philippine National Police (PNP)b should be given the opportunity to investigate it first.

Pangilinan expressed hopes that this sentiment of senators belonging to different political parties would reinforce the independence of the Senate and its check and balance function against abuses.

He said Filipinos express hopes that the current direction of the anti-illegal drugs campaign of President  Duterte which had resulted in many unnecessary killings should immediately stop.

The Duterte administration must adopt a holistic approach on the drug  problem which does not only include how the police force is managed but how to solve problems such as health and poverty, Pangilinan said.

‘’Pagtugtunan natin ang usapin ng kahirapan at  ‘yung health issue – holistic, ang approach,’’ he said. (If we focus our attention of poverty and heath issues, in other words  holistic,  the continuous EJKs will stop as we adopt new approaches.)

Pangilinan said those behind the smuggling of 600 tons of shabu at the Manila International Container Port (MICP) last May should be arrested and charged.

He said stopping the inflow of shabu from abroad, usually from China, would go a long way in reducing drug dependence in the country.

    Of course the killings are “spinning out of control”…

    This country has missed the entire point that as soon as cops are given a “reward” for ANY kind of killing, justified or not…. The state has just sanctioned that killing. There is a very fine line between self defense and arbitrary murder that money should never be allowed to fog.

    The worldwide concept of police using lethal force is accepted to be as a last resort, where life is in immanent danger and no alternative is available…. No civilized country on earth rewards cops for killing under any circumstance…. The reason for that is so obvious here, where shocked senators quote ” “spinning out of control”…. They should have known this and raised their voices the moment the President opened his mouth… Being a lawyer HE should have known that and kept it shut.

      One of his major purposes is to threaten criminals and those who are criminally inclined. It is within his duty and powers to adopt any means available in his office to solve the pervasive drug problem. Our country must be willing to sacrifice the few criminals so that our countrymen can live in safety and in peace.

        Actually, if you have ever read your own Constitution, the FOUNDATIONAL LAW of your nation, the President of the Philippines is not a king.
        There are limits to the office. Violating those legal limits again and again means that Duterte is a criminal.
        Do you know what “presumption of innocence” means?
        Do you have any interest in what crime-fighting policies have been effective in other nations?

            I was suggesting that Filipinos apply Filipino laws to the Philippines.
            Why do people around the world hate Americans? Perhaps because they are faced, day in and day out. with the successes of American culture. For example, you–using American technology and using it to support an Anti-American little banana republic dictator and his death squad cops.

            I run an IT consulting business. I don’t need to look anything up.
            But you make my point for me–you are using American technology to not only criticize the US but also to pretend that you are one. It must make for horrible cognitive dissonance.
            Are Americans arrogant. Yes, probably. Is it based on tangible evidence? Yes. And you are the proof: again, using American technology, and commenting via an American service, about both how you hate American values, support a third world dictator who loves to kill, and also at the same time claim to be an American.

So you’re a rich geek who knows nothing about the real world, who likely saw a CNN news flash about the Philippines, read about drug problems, killings and abuses then somehow came to a brilliant conclusion that you know everything there is to know about the whole problems in the world.

            On the topic of me being an American? I don’t have to prove diddly squat to a snot nose, upstart, spoiled brat who probably never experienced hardship in his life time except looking at how small his penis is, being the reason he gets dumped every time.

            You are proving my point very well. Nobody with your level of education or maturity, and nobody with your misunderstanding of the law is a US Federal agent.

            Their self sacrifice, heroism and honor have nothing to do with you, to them I will salute but them to be related to a self righteous, self-serving, neurotic and self-important moron is such a shame.

      It is almost as if the government looked at failed narcotics policies in other countries–Colombia and Mexico come to mind–and then copied them.
      The hyper-nationalism that promotes a “Filipino only” way of doing things–rejecting ideas from other cultures–helps facilitate this kind of institutional failure.

        Have you even look at the hardship and risk of life, law enforcement go thru just to collect evidence and put away a drug lord in the US? And yet we still feel that even if that trash is in prison there is really no real victory because of idiots like you keeps us from killing the bastard and they end up still running the drug trade from our highly expensive maximum security prison because it is too inhumane not to allow them to talk to their families but they are really not calling home to say hi, hello, how are you but instructions on what to do, who to ship, who to contact, who to kill. Have you ever wonder who the real problems are, people like you who allows these animals to continue to live and to these days still enslave a communities, town, villages and kills more people in a week than the purported EJK in the Philippines for the whole year.

          “Have you even look at the hardship and risk of life, law enforcement go thru just to collect evidence and put away a drug lord in the US?”

          And yet given that crime rates in the US are dramatically lower than the Philippines–it is a much safer society in every respect–it seems worthwhile to me.
          American cops are not sad that are not allowed to murder and that they actually have to do more than stand around on street corners or kill the poor–they do not want to be like the PNP.
          Instead of a policy of murder–proven to fail every time and place it was tried–perhaps you should try to do something proven to work.
          Frankly not only does your attitude make you look violent (although I am guessing you are too much of a coward to be pulling triggers yourself) but it also makes you look backwards and shamefully lazy.

            It is impossible that you are an American cop. I can believe that you are a member of the PNP; with your anger issues, your defense of ignorance, your wretched grammar, and your defense of state-sanctioned murder.
            But even the worst US cops I have met have a great deal more intelligence and integrity than you.

      Or maybe your simple mind is trying to keep it simple. Have you asked yourself if it is ever plausible that these criminals are the cops that could be implicated by the teen Kian and thus took the chance of the operation to assassinate him. Well, have you thought of that possibility or you just jump to your own simple conclusion that your simple mind could manage to comprehend?

    Drugs could kill the masses and the generations to come. Bullets only kill the persons in front of you.

    Why was the youngster out late that night?

    The society must be more mad against illegal drugs. Stop the drug trafficking and you stop the killings.

    It’s the CBCP, LP, and the CHR that are encouraging the criminals to do their wrong ways. I say, no way you hypocrites. I dream for the next generation free from the drug menace and free from fear from the criminals, and corrupt politicians. And most of all, free from lies, unduly pride, greed, and hypocrisy that are the cause of all illogical thinking, madness, and all forms of criminalities.

        Your logic is cyclical. It’s the same logic as the death penalty. The logic was death penalty is not effective. But you forget that it was not applied to its fullest application because their are many noisy minority. But they made it appear that death penalty wasn’t effective. The reason is simple. It was not used fully. Only few died by death penalty. The death of drug peddlers is the State’s retribution to damage they have caused to the citizen of this country. We would never have a safe and peaceful country if we will tolerate drug peddlers, politicians and media who protect these drug peddlers. They must be wiped out from the face of the earth including their protectors and abettors.

          The death penalty is not effective. It has been proven again and again in many different countries that death penalties do not deter crime.
          That is why most successful societies have moved towards more effective ways of curbing crime.
          If you are interested in stopping crime why don’t you follow the policies of countries that have successfully done so already?

          1) speedy trials by jury
          2) focus on the supply side of narcotics instead of the demand side
          3) implement a prison system that reforms instead of punishes

          Or … you could just do it the “Failippines” way and institute policies proven to encourage violence and crime. Like you are doing now.

            It seems to? Did you compare the trend in crime rates in Texas with those of state with death penalty moratoriums?
            (Spoiler: Texas has a lower rate of crime decline than other jurisdictions. In English that you can understand: the death penalty does not reduce crime in Texas.)
            “Seems to” is a refuge of the ignorant.

            Your reply doesn’t even make any sense.
            I suggest you look at actual numbers and you apparently refuse and then suggest that I am the one who is ignorant.
            Aren’t you late for your death squad?

            Very well said sir. Exactly on target. Duterte is maybe not very smart. Nothing can defend his very confused policies.

        Hyperbole. And you think you too is a drug pusher? Are you into drugs also? Why are you defensive on drug criminals? Are you one of them? Your logic necessitates that you too must be a drug personality. Unless you don’t understand the implication of your contention.

      Giving politicians a free license to murder people will not stop corruption. It will abet corruption, and worse.
      Your “cure” is far worse than the disease.

      Come on? Late at night it was 8:30 PM. I’m a law enforcer and I cannot see why you defend someone based on time, I don’t give a damn if it was 4 AM, abuse is abuse and should not be tolerated, how do you earn the trust of the citizenry if you condone bull**** like this. Can’t win hearts and minds if you excuse abusive criminals. Yes they are no longer cops they are criminals.

        The cops take the money of any crook to look away and even to do the killings for them. No doubts in this nation for decades.

        Exactly because of illegal drugs the criminals can buy some cops who are the criminals they are the drug lords, drug pushers and dirty politicians.

        That’s a Duterte paid troll, drumming up support against the investigation of Duterte’s murderous campaign.

        Clearly, his agenda is to distract the public from the glaring social reality that Duterte wanted to indiscriminately murder everyone suspected of being druggies.

          Dude just because the crooked cops are criminals doesn’t mean the CIC Is at fault. So within your line of thinking, every leader of every nations around the world are all criminals? I’m pretty sure your county’s problem with corrupted cops are not unique.

            Has he really advocated murder as you say or he is simply informing the criminals that if they decide to resist by force then prepare to meet your maker?

            Or you just made an assumption that he is saying go murder people? Does it even make sense to you? Wouldn’t you think that the body count would be extremely higher than it is now?

            I mean seriously, with abject poverty in the Philippines including the police who are so under budget that they have to pay for their individual uniforms, if you were one of them wouldn’t you be killing at least 10 everyday for 15,000 PESOS? Wow!! YOU and the common sense lacking intellectuals per say are really out of touch. Simple really if I was in the PNP and the order is to MURDER people for 15,000 PESOS per KILL then man there should be a lot of millionaire police officers right now in that drug infested corrupted country. Wouldn’t you think so?

            Duterte advocates killing. period. I won’t do the research for you, or try to cure you of your warped logic that ignores all facts that point to that only logical conclusion.

      I think the coddlers of the Davao Group are the hypocrites. Si Tatay galit na galit sa gramong droga pero heto namang Davao Group nagpupuslit ng tone-toneladang shabu. Sigaw ng DDS patunayan nyo hindi yung tsismis laang. Eh yung pobreng bata “suspek” pa laang paktay agad! Hypocrite…YOU!!!

      We will not give any safe place, house, den to any drug criminals. They will be hunted to all corners of our country. If it means death and loss of limb to some then so be it. As long as it is done to cleanse our society from harmful people.

    If you involve in drugs you have have put yourself in harm’s way. You should not expect any quarters to be given to you. You have chosen to profit at the expense of other people. You have lost your right of existence. Anybody who justifies your evil acts is a legitimate target.

    From what I saw on a video this pangilinan guy did not even care to visit one of his youth volunteer who was attacked by a drug addict in Cebu City during his campaign, yet here he is grandstanding. Is this HYPOCRISY at its best or what?

    People here spout and spout nonsense about law and no idea how hard it is for the people who enforce the law, because idiots don’t stop to think that not only we have to fight the criminals but also fight the scums within our ranks who got bought by the criminals. Let me give you a clue, a drug lord in Mexico has a bigger GDP than country like the Philippines.

    Akala ko ba sabi ni Gordon at Lacson doon sa senate report last time nila walang EJK dito sa bansa? It took a Kian killing to recognize that fact? How callous some people could be?
