MANGALDAN – Under the gung-ho leadership of the police here, the fight against illegal drugs continues several days before anti- drugs advocate President-Elect Rodrigo Duterte assumes office.
“For criminals to triumph it takes policemen to do nothing,” Superintendent Benjamin Ariola rephrased   Edmund Burke adage’s “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”
In a statement, Ariola, an alumnus of the Philippine National Police Academy’s Class of 2000, cited the series of arrests and subsequent filing of cases against 38 suspected drug users and peddlers from January 9 to present in  separate operations and confiscation of drug paraphernalia here in violation of Republic Act 9165 or Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act.
There were about 76.638 kilos shabu (metamphetamine hydrochloride) seized from 30 persons that the police arrested and sued, Ariola’s data showed.
A drug pusher in the Philippines in spite of the volume of its merchandise could be arrested and detained without bail.
When Ariola was the chief of the Provincial Anti-Illegal Drugs Special Operation Task Group (PAIDSOTG), he said the vigorous if not violent disruptions by chiefs of police in cities and towns resulted in pushers scampering to other towns in Pangasinan.
He said during the tactical interrogations by his men, the apprehended drug peddlers claimed the Muslims are their  illicit trade’s source.
“Kasi lahat ng sources ay tinuturo, iyang tactical interrogation pag huli ng subject, saan galing ang item? Sa Muslim. Muslim ang tinuturo,” he said.

He  said the pusher from Manila would  use public transportation or private car by bringing a kilo of shabu and would drop 100 grams in Villasis, Pangasinan, 100 grams in Candon City, Ilocos Sur, until the pusher reached Ilocos Norte and his bag of illegal drugs is empty.
