Gov reacts to summary killings

CITY OF SAN FERNANDO—“I, Governor Pineda, your Vice-governor Dennis and your mayors, do not want to see anybody be executed in an oppressive manner notwithstanding a reputation of being a pusher. We have jail. We have the law. I do not know who’s responsible but being the mother of the province, I do not want anyone be killed in such illegal act”.

Thus said, Governor Lilia Nanay Pineda to thousands of barangay tanods who answered her call during their assembly at the Bren Z. Guiao Convention Center, recently.

The governor also said that there are more than a thousand policemen in the province with around two million, two hundred population or 1 over 2,000 ratio.

Pineda even cited the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) Secretary Mar Roxas during the latter’s visit and distribution of patrol vehicles here.

“Secretary, huwag nyo na po kaming bigyan  ng additional pulis. Di po namin kayo mapipilit kung wala kayong maibibigay. Dito po sa province of Pampanga meron akong sampung libong bantay bayan na nagpoproteksiyon sa mga Kapampangan” the governor said.

Roxas for his part said, he was amazed by the act of volunteerism shown by the Kapampangans for he knows no other province in the country that possesses such act of heroism.

“Bumilib po si secretary kasi daw po sa ibang probinsya sa buong Pilipinas walang ganyan na kahit walang sweldo, nagpupuyat kayo, tinutulungan nyo ang mga kapitan at barangay officials para hindi pumasok ang mga kriminal sa inyong mga barangay” the governor added.

The governor, during the assembly distributed calling cards to barangay tanods and urged them to come forward and report drug personalities they know of immediately to the governor, mayors and policemen. This, according to her will help curb drug trafficking in the province.

“Huwag po kayong matakot at tandaan nyo po pare-parehas po tayong naniniwala sa Diyos, basta po ang hangarin natin ay para sa kaligtasan ng ating kapwa Pilipino pagpapalain po tayo, kaya kailangan magtrabaho po tayo”, Pineda concluded.
