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

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.
