Ted Failon will probe on the growing number of complaints and cases filed against policemen in the country this Sunday (June 23) in ”Failon Ngayon.”
From January 2010 to April 2012, the Philippine National Police (PNP) had recorded 137 cases involving officers ranging in rank from PO1 all the way to Police Superintendents or Lieutenant Colonels. Charges vary from rape, carnapping, theft, to kidnap for ransom and even attempted murder.
One of which is the case filed against PO3 Morris Malindog and PO1 Robert Cruz who were accused of breaking in the residence of Bagui family in Sta. Ana, Manila who was robbed of P2 million worth of property.
Even high-ranking officials got involved in such controversies. In 2009, a group of generals made an anomalous transaction when they purchased three second-hand choppers that cost up to P105 million.
What happened to the case against these generals? As Ted probes deeper in the issue, he also discovers that there are PNP officials who have long been dismissed but remain in service until now.
Who are these officials? On the other hand, who are the policemen who were convicted for the crime they did?
