Chiz: Military and PNP failed to protect civilians

Opposition Senator Chiz Escudero said that the massacre in Ampatuan, Maguindanao was rooted from the inability of the Armed Forces of the Philippines and the Philippine National Police to protect civilians. “It’s a reality that the military and the police cannot protect civilians. Civilians more often than not are left to protect themselves in some parts of Mindanao ,” he said during an interview over the ABS-CBN News Channel (ANC).

Escudero blames the insincerity of law enforcement officials in enforcing gun permit laws. He said that the next administration should make sure that the laws are being followed. He said that if a civilian carries firearms without any permits, then he should be prohibited from holding a gun. “If you are not a soldier or personnel in uniform, you have no business carrying a gun,” he said.
