Leni owes the PNP an apology

FVP Leni Robredo is now feeling the pressure of the looming 2022 elections. Her panic is palpable from her irrational behavior that has escalated as the country moves closer to the next national and local elections. She knows that time is running out. Unless she and the opposition succeed in agitating the Filipino people to rise in anger against President Rodrigo Roa Duterte, their political existence will be written off 18 months from now. There is no way Robredo and her allies can win in the elections. Their fate is now clear: a resounding defeat at the polls.

This is the reason why Robredo is desperate for issues to hurl against the Duterte administration. All their gimmickry during the last four and a half years have ended consistently in failure. Each time they try something to shake up the government and undermine the President, it always backfires on them.

Robredo’s latest tirade in trying to pin blame on President Duterte for the gruesome double murder committed by Police Senior Master Sergeant Jonel Nuezca was simply shameless. Her ambition made her forget the extreme sacrifices made by the men and women of the Philippine National Police, not only in keeping our communities safe, but in doing disaster relief and rescue missions as well. She didn’t care if the image of the PNP would be shattered; for her, it was a ladder step that could just be disposed in her desire to reach the highest office of the land.

It was most unfair. It was most unjust. It was immoral. Political ambition is never a justification for destroying an institution. She owes the PNP an apology.
