Meet President Rodrigo Duterte’s newest critic on the War on Drugs: Ramon Tulfo.
He claims that the War on Drugs has brought about a new breed of scalawags among the rank and file of the Philippine National Police (PNP).
These are scalawags who extort money from innocent civilians by accusing them of involvement in the drug trade and use the anti-drug campaign to settle personal scores.
The heaviest among these accusations are crimes of kidnapping done by policemen.
Tulfo shows no quarter when talking about these corrupt policemen. He believes that they should be disposed of with “extreme prejudice.”
Allegedly, many of these corrupt police officers are involved in criminal activities such as drug trafficking or the recycling of seized narcotics, car theft, robbery and being killers-for-hire.
Tulfo believes that these scalawags should be shot in the head and their bodies hanging from electric posts or lying on the streets.
But the most severe statement was of Tulfo saying that these all happened because PNP chief Director General Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa lacks action.
Tulfo said in his article that Chief ‘Bato’ is always not around when serious crises happen to the country. Examples of these are the US Embassy incident where a police car rammed several demonstrators and the killing of Mayor Rolando Espinosa in his jail cell.
Tulfo even went as far as to equate policemen to criminals and had this to say in his inquirer article.
If President Digong wants to instill fear among policemen and criminals—there seems to be no more distinction between the two—he should replace PNP chief Director General Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa.
Dela Rosa is all bluster but lacking in action.
He has not inspired respect among the PNP officers corps and the rank and file because they look at him as a clown; always making the public laugh instead of being serious in his work.
