Lacson schools Bato how to run the police

By Mortz C. Ortigoza

Senator Ping Lacson, a former chief of the national police, schooled incumbent chief of the Philippine National Police’s Director General Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa when he told the latter at the Senate's Committee on Dangerous Drugs hearing Thursday the following: “Don’t wait for your men to be sued. You sued them administratively so they could be suspended”. He said that the chief PNP should be pro-active to interfere on his policemen who were caught by security cameras “planting ” illegal drugs shabu to table drawers of foreigners like those South Koreans and Chinese and cops who were panned by close circuit cameras stealing valuables of foreigners where some they physically hurt during their raid.

“Respect and trust among your men are earned, they cannot be demanded,” the ramrod former four - star general, who even forced policemen to reduce their beer belly during his watch, cited. The lecture ensued during the hearing of the death of the South Korean executive of Hanjin, world’s biggest shipbuilder that give jobs to Filipinos, who was murdered near the office of General Bato by police officials who also shamelessly fleeced the wife of Jee Ick Joo with five million pesos ransom even after they murdered him. The incumbent Chief PNP looked incompetent on the call of Lacson who was feared but respected during his unforgettable stint as top honcho of the national security. Bato should remember the quotes of political philosopher Niccolò Machiavelli when he wrote them on his book The Prince: “It is better to be feared than loved, if you cannot be both”, “If an injury has to be done to a man it should be so severe that his vengeance need not be feared” and “The first method for estimating the intelligence of a ruler is to look at the men he has around him”. The last one was very applicable to the exhortation last Thursday of Lacson to dela Rosa. Son of a gun, those quotes that are being used nowadays as dogma by effective leaders were written by Machiavelli in the 16th Century in Florence, Italy. Critics of Bato criticized him not for his heavy handedness leadership but as singer, clown, and drama artist on concerts, boxing of Manny Pacquiao in the U.S, and Senate hearing and national TV interviews where he in some occasions wept unabashedly just like what he had with the effeminate balding host Boy Abunda.
