Duterte: PNP being sabotaged


By Argyll Cyrus Geducos

President Duterte said the Philippine National Police (PNP) is being sabotaged in the light of the recent killings of teenagers, including his ‘relative’ Carl Angelo Arnaiz in Caloocan City mid-August.

Duterte, in his speech in Digos City, Friday evening, ordered PNP chief Director General Ronald dela Rosa to look into the killings closely as he claimed that someone is doing the slayings on purpose.

President Rodrigo Roa Duterte graces the 17th Araw ng Digos founding anniversary celebration in Davao del Sur on September 8, 2017.

“Silipin mong mabuti kasi sinasabutahe kayo. Sinasadya talaga ‘yan (Look into it because you are being sabotaged. The killings are being intentionally done),” Duterte told Dela Rosa.

He also defended the police from the death of Carl’s companion, 14-year-old Reynaldo De Guzman whose body was found with 30 stab wounds and his head wrapped in packaging tape.

“That is not the job of the police Anak ng… So, meron diyan nagsasabutahe (So someone from the inside is sabotaging the PNP),” he added.

The President said he belives that this is being done to discredit the PNP and his drug war because there is no reason for him to order the police to kill his own relatives.

“One of them [slain teenagers] was my relative. Carl Angelo Arnaiz. Why would I want him dead?” Duterte said in dialect. “May nagluluto (Someone’s cooking up something) somewhere to discredit us.”

It was reported that Carl Angelo’s father Carlito, who hails from Maasin, Leyte, is Duterte’s relative from the mother side. Duterte met with Carl’s parents in Malacañang on Wednesday.

Duterte declared it is not a policy to kill drug suspects despite the recent killing of the teenagers, allegedly by the police, notably Kian delos Santos also in Caloocan City mid-August.

    It is easy to believe that this is a destabilization attempt because the ones who will benefit from the destabilization are the enemies of the government namely: the political opposition, drug lords, smugglers, oligarchs, corrupt officials, the western imperialists and the terrorists.

    Is it hard to imagine that all these groups would want the President ousted or at the very least lose his support of the Filipino people. And considering these forces have tens of billions of dollars at stake, is it hard to imagine that they will go to any extent including killing innocent teens just to meet their objective?

    Let all the Filipino people join hands and prevent these forces from becoming victorious.

      Baka si Kitty ang isunod nila, teenager din yun. Yan ang tunay na destabilization. Matutuluyan nang mabuang si Tatay D. So step down na sya..buang na eh!

    The sabotage of the PNP began the day when they were given permission and even encouraged to kill drug ‘suspects’. Simple policemen were given the power of judge, jury and executioner in the most stupid way ever by a president who also guaranteed these policemen immunity from charges. The PNP were reduced to the role of ruthless Gestapo and have now lost the respect of much of the population because of Duterte’s sabotage.
    That is the factual sabotage rather than the fictional sabotage now being presented.

      We elected nut cases and this is the end result of the stupid leaders we elected. They themselves seem to be high on drugs but want to blame others for the trouble

    There are similarities in the 2 killings. It was meant to capture the mass outrage.

    In my view, nobody is sabotaging the PNP or you mr, president, they are only following orders from their higher ups.
