PNP, from Euro Scandal to Gestapo

Apparently, the influence of PNP Generals in Europe has adverse side-effect, this time, the PNP is acting like a GESTAPO, by banning media access to the blotters.

If this is not stupidity on the part of the PNP Chief, maybe it is another form of harrassment and a stupid decision coming from the products of Philippine Military Academy!

While I admire the stand of Gen. Versoza before not to present suspects to the media, I believe this move shows how a brilliant man like Gen. Versoza is blinded by his vendictiveness and panicking! Imagine Gen. Versoza making such a rule? The right to information is guaranteed under the bill of rights in 1987 Constitution.

The Philippine Constitution guarantees the right of its people to information on matters of public concern. Section 7 of the Bill of Rights of the 1987 Constitution reads:

“The right of the people to information on matters of public concern shall be recognized. Access to official records, and to documents, and papers pertaining to official acts, transactions, or decisions, as well as to government research data used as basis for policy development, shall be afforded the citizen, subject to limitations as may be provided by law.”

While Gen. Versoza is not in Europe then, maybe his Euro Generals who went there saw GESTAPO as a nice way to stop the media from digging into the Euro Scandal, a scandal akin to obscenity, but not in the sexual context, but more on Obscene Display of Wealth!

These idiots are willing to look funny and stupid in the sight of so many Filipinos by fabricating lies --- lies that they themselves can't believe even just an iota of it!

But I guess, that's the kind of culture that the government of Gloria Macapal Arrovo wants to breed... and she's pretty effective.... teaching her men to lie to their teeth. It has been successfully passed on to the minutest lower class being in her Malacanang plantilla!

To PNP, wake up! You're toeing the line!
