WHAT REFORM HAS BATO DONE?
Duterte extended Bato’s term as PNP chief ostensibly because he trusts only Bato to rid the police force of scalawags.
He has been on the job for 19.5 months. What reforms has he accomplished?
1. Asked scalawags to push up.
2. Asked them to clear Pasig of water lilies.
3. Sent them to fight in Marawi.
4. Joined them in boodle fight far from combat.
5. Championed their Nanlaban excuse.
6. Set bad example by accepting illegal gifts like Vegas junket.
He is clearly just a henchman, not a strategic reformer of a corrupt institution.
The real motivations seem to be unfinished business (failed drug war), covering tracks (vis a vis looming ICC case) and electoral ambitions (stay in limelight until 2019).
Duterte officially extended Bato’s term for trust reasons:
“There are scoundrels, scalawags in every organization. That is why the PNP chief now who is supposed to retire on the 24th of April, and because he enjoys my trust and confidence, I will extend his term for a little bit longer.”
Not for this mathematical reason:
“If Germany had Hitler, the Philippines would have… (pointing to himself)… Hitler massacred three million Jews … there’s three million drug addicts. There are. I’d be happy to slaughter them.”
PNP chief: No president is foolish enough to murder own people
I can name several. Hitler murdered German Jews. Pol Pot murdered Khmers. Mao too during his purges. Stalin. Idi Amin. Marcos.
In fact, I can name a mayor foolish enough to murder his own people. And a police chief foolish enough to follow this mayor.
Of course, you can cite your dishonest excuse: It’s not murder but Nanlaban.
Bring your foolish excuse to ICC.
Which challenge will Bato make? Which one is he capable of winning?
A. Challenge China to leave our reefs.
B. Challenge PNP scalawags to reform.
C. Challenge Davao Group to behave.
D. Challenge ICC to investigate Tokhang.
E. Challenge Media to boodle fight 20km away from front-line.
Same (correct) answer for both questions.
Bato-bato sa langit. Ang matamaan huwag umiyak.
BATO CHALLENGED DU30 CRITICS ‘GIYERA TAYO’. HE SHOULD FOCUS ON PNP SCALAWAGS FIRST. THEN HIS ICC CRIMES VS HUMANITY CASE NEXT.
Ang tanong: Ano ba talaga ang dapat gawin o nagawa ni PNP chief Bato for him to deserve an extension of his term?
