PO2 Frenzel Mendoza: Yet Another Reason to Abolish the PNP Health Service

The veteran cop that I am, I still find it very hard to watch the youtube video of PO2 Frenzel Mendoza shooting and killing bar owner Cesar Degay and security guard Sonny Awingan in cold blood.  The video is here (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3iyqwBIHN0o) and I would like to warn viewers to be ready to see a human acting out his animal side.


The act of PO2 Mendoza is blood-curdling in so many ways.  The worst cut of all is that, the duo, Degay and Awingan had just actually saved him from a lynching mob.  If the news reports are accurate, Mendoza
had just gotten in trouble with a kid to whom he pointed his firearm and extorted money from.  Alas, the kid had companions and they came to help by lynching the drunk Mendoza.  It was very clear at the start of the video that Degay and Awingan were actually shielding Mendoza from the lunching mob.  With the mob around him, Mendoza actually fell helplessly on the ground and if not for the duo, he could have been killed at that point.

It appeared that all was about to end well with Mendoza being escorted out of the door by the duo.  Suddenly, all hell broke loose and Mendoza was back with guns blazing.  Degay and Awingan were shot at close range and the visibly drunk Mendoza executed them gangland style.

My oft repeated question once again surfaced.  How in hell that a person this unstable and psychologically imbalanced was able to pass the neuropsychiatric tests of the PNP which is part of the screening in the recruitment process?  This incident again highlights the need for a thorough review of the PNP Health Service.  Time and again, I had actually advocated the deactivation and abolition of this unit and the conversion of the PNP General Hospital into a PNP owned and operated business.  My full article is here:  http://pulisnapogi.blogspot.com/2014/04/pnp-reforms-continuing-article-part-4b.html

The PNP should immediately review its screening process.  Otherwise, more psychotics like PO2 Mendoza with still be able to join the PNP.

    The answer: They actually passed. Unfortunately, the results of NP screening are valid and precise for only a short period of time... and there lies the problem.

  2. they passed fair and square? possible. but more likely because of pardinos.

    or the np test of the health service is so outdated and the people in charge of it does not care. i should know. over the course of my service, i had taken the same test over and over: promotion, gun licensing, un deployment, etc.

    either way, the pnp health service is best given to a 3rd party service provider. makakatipid na ang pnp, tataas pa ang kalidad ng medical services na matatanggap ng mga pulis...

    no you dont. do u get promoted every year? do you renew your gun license every year? do u get deployed in foreign land every year? by the way, the result of NP screening is valid for 6 months only.. at ganun talaga paulit ulit and you should know the reason for that by now given the length of your service.

    if you think Physical fitness test is important and should be done semi-annually to preserve the fighting condition of a policeman, how much more the importance of regular NP screening to identify potential "pyschos" in the service. "dbale nang mabagal tumakbo kasi malaki ang tyan dahil mabilis nman ang bala kesa maunahan kayo ng mga buang sa likod nyo".

    should i wait until you become? or hangan dito na lang tayo pareho?

    1. i am quite surprised that you are insisting that the validity of np tests are only for six months! are you saying that a person found sane in january could be found neurotic in july? aha! so the new firearms law is TERRIBLY wrong because the LTOPF is valid for 2 years. that means that gun holders are certified to be sane only on the first quarter of the license and the rest of it, bahala na si magellan?

      i would be terribly dismayed if you are a member of the pnp health service. the reason for the 6 month expiry of the np exam is not science. it is business economics (read: profits).

      i am not waiting until i become. i am doing something for the pnp now, no matter how small. like writing this blog...

    Akala ko pa naman you are somewhat different yun pala kapareho mo lang din pala sila...

    ---how swift is thy conclusion! sana ngresearch ka muna mabuti hindi yun bumanat ka agad. Sabagay ganyan naman talaga kayo mag-isip kaya puro KAPALPAKAN ang PNP from top down to bottom. gayahin kita ha, i-generalized ko na lang din explanation sayo: SANA PALA HINDI NA GINAWA ANG IBA PANG MGA BATAS KRIMINAL KUNG CERTIFIED NA HINDI KA MABUBUWANG SA LOOB NG 2 TAON.

    "i would be terribly dismayed if you are a member of the pnp health service. the reason for the 6 month expiry of the np exam is not science. it is business economics (read: profits)."

    --- at present times, i'm proud to say that I'm not a member of PNP. matapang ka magsabi i-abolish or i-privatize ang PNPHS, I dare you to give up a percentage of your salary that it will match the salary of a mere PO1 before you even say such things. Besides, dahil lang sa underperforming ang ibang mga section ng PNPHS kaya hinihiling mo na i-abolish na sila??? ang takbo ng utak mo e ganito: PAG BALDADO NA ANG MGA PAA NG KAPATID MO E PATAYIN MO NA KASI WALA NANG SILBI. mas malala ka pa kesa kay purisima na binabatikos mo. NAKAKATAKOT KA MAGING MATAAS NA OPISYAL NG PNP DAHIL SA GANYANG LINE OF THINKING MO.

    "i am not waiting until i become. i am doing something for the pnp now, no matter how small. like writing this blog..."

    ---hahaha given na yang reason sa blog nato, don't overstate the obvious. what I mean is yun pagbabago sana na iimplement mo once na nasa posisyon ka na! but now i wish you won't reach any higher.

    hanggan dito ka lang talaga... this will be my last post here.

  5. lumalayo at nagsanga sanga na ang argumento. saan galing to? "I dare you to give up a percentage of your salary that it will match the salary of a mere PO1 before you even say such things."

    you are now denying that you are a member of the PNP health service ha. pero ang lengwahe mo pulis na pulis din. ikinakahiya mo na rin ba ang unit mo? hahaha.

    anyway, be that as it may. so you are not a member of the PNP and you are just a rabid defender of the PNPHS huh? neat!

    your beef is basically you do not agree with me in my call for the abolition of the PNP HS. Well, if you had read my previous post about the unit, you should have read about the story of Dr. Poscablo shooting Director Damatac.

    On November 29, 2006, during the 13th Anniversary of the PNP Health Service at the Multi Purpose Hall of Camp Crame, PCINSP Poscablo, a doctor in the PNPHS, shot his boss PCSUPT Damatac, the Director of the PNPHS because he was demoted by the latter. Poscablo also lobbed a grenade at the crowd that killed one of his colleagues and wounded many others. Poscablo was shot by the responding policemen. Poscablo was rushed to the PNP General Hospital inside Camp Crame, while the Damatac was rushed to St. Luke's Hospital, a good FIVE KILOMETERS away.

    Now, if the Director of the PNPHS himself unmistakably showed distrust to the very hospital that he headed, how can you make me trust them?

    I am not asking for the deactivation of the PNPHS just because of whim and caprices. I based my conclusion based on personal observation and experiences.
