Whereupon Nuezca, unmindful of various people filming the bitter argument, swears at the mother, reaches for his 9 mm pistol and shoots her once in the head, then the son twice, and then the mother again as she lay on the ground. Neither one is armed.
There is simply no way Nuezca, can get away with murder.

The police's menace of guns, power, and machismo
by Diana G. Mendoza October 07, 2017

I boarded the owner-type jeep with the male tabloid reporters. The photographers were in another vehicle. We followed the policemen's car, also an owner-type jeep, with the male suspect seated in the middle.

When we arrived in Bagong Silang in a vast talahiban (grassy field), the cops pulled out knives and started stabbing the suspect without letup. Then they asked him to get off. "Takbo (Run)!" they shouted. The suspect, bloodied from the stab wounds, ran fast. The cops pulled out their guns and shot at him. The suspect was able to get up and run, already limping. They shot him again until he could no longer be seen from the tall weeds.

I gasped. I thought the cops were going to turn their guns on us, having witnessed what they did. The reporters were quiet. The photographers didn't click their cameras.

by PCSupt Guillermo Lorenzo T. Eleazar September 19, 2017

Unknown to many, Oplan Bakal is welcome to club and bar management and owners who give police prior approval without knowing when the operation will be conducted because Oplan Bakal helps ensure the safety of the majority of the customers and the club personnel themselves.

Leadership breakdown in PNP
January 30, 2017
It takes the death of a South Korean businessman – an embarrassment, says President Duterte – for the PNP to realize it's gone too far in its war on drugs.
Lest we forget, two things have led to the breakdown in the PNP – on top of its inherent organizational weaknesses:
  • President Duterte has unleashed a culture of impunity in his centerpiece war-on-drugs program.
  • De la Rosa’s leadership has inordinately focused on his visibility and self-promotion rather than keeping a tight rein on the police force.
