3 ninja cops axed

The Philippine National Police has terminated from the service three out of 13 police officers who had figured in the fake buy-bust operation in Mexico City, Pampanga on Nov. 29, 2013.

In a press conference, P/Lt. General Archie Gamboa announced that the three policemen — P/Master Sergeant Donald Duque, P/Master Sergeant Rommel Vital and P/Corporal Romeo Guerrero, Jr — were dismissed for a grave offense committed in Antipolo City.

This only shows that these ninja cops were really into the monkey business.

And they were so bold in committing crimes because their boss, General Oscar Albayalde, was always there to bail them out.

What this shows is that the PNP is capable of enforcing discipline in its ranks if its leadership has zero tolerance for misdemeanors and outright crimes.

My only concern is that this might be one of those knee-jerk reactions to placate an angry public.

This shouldn’t be a one-time sweep of its ranks. The cleansing process must be non-stop. The PNP must investigate and prosecute wrong-doing fairly, without giving favors to whoever might intercede for them.
