Hostage taker makes police scary to children — Bataoil

DAGUPAN CITY – The hostage fiasco last Monday did not only destroy the country’s reputation in the international scene.

What slain hostage- taker police officer Rolando Mendoza did perpetuate the stigma shrouding policemen that they are enemies of the people, especially of the children.

The police have been trying to shake off the reputation of being scary, especially as some parents still warn their little children that the police will get them if they do not behave.

Booboos on hostages’ rescue mission

The hostages’ rescuers in Manila recently were no different to the hostess takers (who asked the poor lass to dance naked inside the police station) in Mangaldan, Pangasinan.

All of them, including their ground commander, were frozen from their post because they disgraced the police force.

As I watched the unfolding hostage drama on TV around 7 Pm in August 23, I could only disgustingly shake my head how incompetent and poorly equipped our Special Weapon and Tactics (SWAT).

We are not blocking Mayor Revita’s projects, says Vice Mayor Pajela

By Virgilio Sar. Maganes

ROSALES- Vice Mayor Dominador E. Pajela, Jr. denied that the Sangguniang Bayan and his office are blocking the implementation of the projects of Mayor Ricardo V. Revita.

This is in response to a radio interview aired over Bombo Radyo last week by Mayor Revita saying that the Sangguniang Bayan thru its presiding officer Vice Mayor Pajela is apparently blocking his pet projects- traffic lights costing P3.6 million, columbary at San Pedro West village and the hiring of employees for Public Order and Safety Office (POSO).

“I am supportive to the projects of Mayor Revita. The Sangguniang Bayan members are supportive as well. We just only want that the implementation of projects should follow proper processes and in their right perspectives,” he said.

Teachers’ brutality

A fractured left leg. A half semester in school lost at the AMA- Computer Learning Center in Urdaneta City. A physical pain. An emotional pain that forever will hound him. And a family’s debt of more than P60,000.00 due to hospitalization and medical expenses.

These are now the situations of a male, 21 years old student of Bacag vllage, Villasis, Pangasinan after he was allegedly mauled by two teachers in the same barangay at 8:00 in the evening of July 24, 2010 at Mighty 7 sari-sari store (variety store), also located in the same village.

Mark Philip B. Surmilla, writhing in pain, narrated to me what happened in that fateful night.
