It was not true that two of the five police generals who coddled drug lords in the country were publicly implicated recently by President Rodrigo Duterte because of their surnames that incriminate them.

One of them is General Loot who is now a mayor of one of the towns in Cebu.
"Loot" in English is stolen money or valuables.
The other one is General Joel “Pagdilao”. Pagdilao is near the Filipino word “Dilaw” or Yellow” the official dress color of Duterte’s presidential rival Mar Roxas of the Liberal Party.
Pagdilao, by the way, was recently the chief of the most lucrative post of the regional offices of the police in country – the National Capital Regional Police Office (NCRPO). It was a two-star post.
If a one- star general in Luzon could earned five to seven million pesos a month at a regional police office from illegal number game jueteng, drop ball or colored games, video karera and whatchamacallit, what more if the regional chief is assigned at the NCRPO where these number games did not only thrive there but illegal drugs?
Thanks to the tens of millions of the country’s population who shoved and jostled themselves for economic gains in a hell hole called Metro Manila.
