LAWLESS LAW ENFORCERS

House Committee on Public and Safety chair Rep. Romeo Acop heads the probe into HR 763 he co-filed with Reps. Leopoldo Bataoil, Raul Tupas, Gary Alejano and Ben Evardone on the breakdown of discipline in the Philippine National Police, paying particular attention to the recent killings in Caloocan, the alleged inaction of the PNP despite the spate of killings, the conduct of operations without the knowledge of superiors and the use of minors during police operations. Caloocan Rep. Edgar Erice expressed apprehension over the replacement of the 1,200-strong Caloocan police force with only 300 unarmed policemen, weakening their crime-fighting ability, while PNP officials dispelled allegations of inaction, quotas or rewards. Along with Reps. Cristal Bagatsing, Rozanno Rufino Biazon, Winston Castelo, Ruwel Peter Gonzaga, Scott Davies Lanete and Gus Tambunting, PNP officials, related government agencies and guests, including the minor used in the highly controversial Caloocan police raid were also present in the hearing. / CM/GE
