anyone. Netizens even call the alleged victim as planted or “bayaran.” So what is my pulis take on this matter?
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?
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!
O mga haters, banat na!
