Who says jueteng cannot be stopped in Pangasinan?

“Puede pala na mahinto ang Jueteng kahit na walang hulihan! said Joel, a kubrador. “Akala ko mahihinto lang ito kapag sabay-sabay na na-raid at ipinahuli ang mga sangkot sa Jueteng.”

Who says jeteng cannot be stopped in Pangasinan?

Jueteng has stopped in Pangasinan.

And who stopped Jueteng in Pangasinan?

Once upon a time, the responsibility to stop jueteng was always put on the shoulders of the Philippine National Police.

The stop in jueteng operations in Pangasinan is successfully holding on not because of the exercise of police powers of the state.

The stop in jueteng operations in Pangasinan is successfully holding on not because of massive raids on jueteng dens and arrests of known jueteng personalities.

The stop in jueteng operations in Pangasinan is successfully holding on not because the Church advised its faithful not to patronize the illegal numbers game,

The stop in jueteng operations in Pangasinan is successfully holding on not because all the congressmen and congresswomen of the province made a concerted action against the operators in the province.

The cure is in the cause.

The cure to the continued operation of jueteng operations in the province of Pangasinan is in the cause of the continued jueteng operations in the province of Pangasinan.

Whatever or whoever caused the continued spread of the jueteng disease in Pangasinan is the same entity that cured the disease.

We congratulate whatever or whoever stopped jueteng in Pangasinan without the necessary raids and arrests!
