That Sampaloc Execution: My Pulis Take

Now even the kitchen sink is being thrown at the five policemen caught on video shooting a suspect who appeared to have surrendered.

Philippine Star, in its editorial last July 18 screamed “Propensity for Abuse.”


Almost everyone (led by the Commission on Human Rights of course) is screaming for their blood.  Even with the statement of the supposed victim, the policemen seem to gain no sympathy from
anyone.  Netizens even call the alleged victim as planted or “bayaran.” So what is my pulis take on this matter?

Let us first review the video.  First and foremost, it showed a tricycle circling a neighborhood several times.  Only the driver, purportedly Villarosa, was on board.

Next, the video showed the tricycle approaching a parked sedan with several men around it apparently waiting for the tricycle.  There were already two men on board—the driver and a backrider.

As the tricycle approached, the backrider jumped and ran to the opposite direction and actually met a responding policeman on the road.  This policeman is now identified as the team leader himself, Police Senior Inspector Rommel Salazar.  It was also dug up on records that Salazar is currently facing administrative charges for the death of an inmate under his custody.


Salazar then executes Villarosa.
After the shooting, the video showed another man in civilian clothes place something near the body of the shooting victim.  It is now obvious that it was the planted gun recovered from the driver.


Finally, the video showed the backrider ride another sedan.  All vehicles are unmarked but many of the policemen were in uniform. 

Here is my pulis analysis:

The whole operation is a set up execution—a “latag” in Filipino police parlance, black ops if you are American, and murder if you are from CHR.  The objective is to kill Villarosa and make it appear as an encounter during a hot pursuit.  But here is the caveat for the bleeding hearts led by the CHR:  the policemen are certain that Villarosa is a real holdupper.  Notorious in fact and a headache to them that they decided to eliminate him in a blaze of glory.  Whether this decision-making process is right or wrong is a subject worthy of another article altogether.  Hehehe.  But now, let me just focus on how did the policemen do this “latag.”

First step is they waited for Villarosa to again ply his “route” and do his nefarious activities.  You see, tricycles do not circle around neighborhoods for nothing.  May pilahan sila.  Especially during those wee hours, only drivers with extracurricular activities run around without a passenger.

At this juncture, the policemen were already in talks with an “alpha” or asset who joins Villarosa.  This “alpha” is known to Villarosa and “inihuhulog” nya na ito.  The “alpha” induces him to drive towards the area where the waiting policemen are and abandons him upon seeing the cops.

The “alpha” and the cops obviously know each other because when they met at the road, the cops ignored him and in fact, the sedan where the “alpha” boarded in was most probably owned by the cops themselves.

The rest of the video is self-explanatory.

For this black ops, I give the MPD cops a grade of 100 for lakas ng loob and dedication to duty, 75 (barely passing) for execution, and 0 for creativity.

100 for lakas ng loob and dedication to duty:  Nowadays, rarely do you see cops willing to kill for what they believe is right.  The PNP in general is perceived to be lazy not without a reason.  You see, a policeman will receive his salary on the 15th and the 30th of the month whether he gets a criminal off the street or not.  So for many policeman, the “job” simply consists of getting on the shift and getting off after 12 hours.  This is actually the norm now thus that article of Philippine Star "Propensity for Abuse" is quite misleading.  Pray tell me what you think about this scenario.  You had just been victimized by a holdupper in the vicinity of Welcome Rotunda in QC.  Remember that this is the boundary of MPD and QCPD.  The first thing that you saw is a passing MPD patrol car.  You ask for their help and point to them the holdupper running towards Galas, QC.  What do you think will be their reaction?  Google these circumstances and see for yourself!  (The MPD people will advise you to report the incident to Galas Police Station some 2 kilometers away and go on their merry way.)

But for these Sampaloc policemen, the job includes getting criminals off the street.  And these are the rare breed and diminishing species nowadays.  There are legals ways to do it, yes, but the legal system itself is biased towards criminals.  This is another topic worthy of a separate article so relax muna ang mainit na ang ulo sa article na ito.  Hahahaha!  For starters in this case of Villarosa who is a known holdupper, who among his victims actually pursued a case against him?  Who will be the complainants?

Davao, hello?  Hahahaha!

75 for execution:  Let me call a spade a spade.  Ang tatanga ng mga pulis na yun.  Lalatag na rin lang, e sa may CCTV pa.  Dito walang ibang dapat sisihin kundi sila sila na rin lang.  They may have been too lazy to recon the area before they went ahead with the operation.  They should have chosen an isolated place away from the prying eyes of the masses.  They should have taken a leaf from the Cavite cops who recently encountered bank robbery suspects inside a subdivision!

0 for creativity:  The surfacing of the alleged robbery victim was a poor and obvious afterthought.  The police should have done this right on the execution time so that when the TV networks arrive, they already have a "victim" on scene ready to be interviewed by the reporters!  It would have been better if they used a poor helpless girl as the planted victim.  Even better if they asked the “alpha” to drive the tricycle and induced Villarosa to actually rob someone so that there will be an actual hot pursuit.  Even better if the planted victim is a female undercover cop who will shoot Villarosa dead while in the act of robbing her.  Hay.

I actually have several other better scripts if the cops just care to listen to my seminar entitled "Ang tanga, bow!"  Hahahaha!  Well, Sr Insp Rommel Salazar and men, Mabuhay pa rin kayo!  Just learn from your mistakes and do better in the future.  Konting sipag lang at magtanong kayo sa Station Commander nyo na si PSUPT Manan Muarip on how to do it right.  Maraming baon yan galing sa QCPD!

Hahahaha!

O mga haters, banat na!

  4. from an old man; what is sorely missed is the fact that spl ops are resorted to when legal implements fail to protect the people, the community - when it becomes morally imperative, when official duty is over ridden by moral obligation - sad is when 'operators kuno' undertake spl ops with the end in view of personal aggrandizement complimented by shabbily scripted scenario - in the worst atrocious struggles, the distinction has always been on the moral cause, otherwise we all become the ogre that never dies...

    often times i felt that am a failure or maybe, just maybe some guys were dozing then
