Last Monday I told a town’s chief of police (COP) about ”netizens” ridiculed him in social media Face Book of his soft approach to illegal drug pushers.
“Iyong ibang bayan at siyudad, andami ng sumuko at namamatay, pero dito sa area ninyo wala pa. Kelan daw may mang-aagaw din na pushers ng baril, tanong nila?” I posed.
The police official smiled on the dare. He said, the mockers should give him a week and he will show them he meant business.
Four days later, a top drug personality in the town was pumped in with bullets by the policemen after he grabbed the guns of the latter.
“Boss, may nang-agaw na ng baril sa area ko,” he called me.
“Send me the photo of the dead pusher, i- post natin doon sa Face Book ng mga nanga-ngantiyaw, “ I retorted.
He said aside from the deceased, he was targeting, Mr. XYZ, another Top 5 drug personality.
“Matagal na kaming may gustong tumbahin dito. Top 5 sa drug list namin. Problema doon siya nagtatago sa isang siyudad,” he confided to me.
He said he even plan to “sell” (or “benta” in vernacular) him to the chief of police there to get rid of the peddler.
He told me his men want to kill the habitual delinquent.
