Abusive Quezon cop disarmed


LUCENA CITY—Quezon police provincial director Senior Supt. Valeriano de Leon has ordered a local policeman to be disarmed and to face investigation due to alleged drunken and abusive conduct inside a bar here on Tuesday.

“I will not tolerate any kind of abuses from my policemen,” De Leon said on Thursday.

Businessman Ronaldo Javierto, owner of Road 62 Bar and Restaurant here, on Wednesday filed at the city police a complaint of alarm and scandal against PO3 Felix Avillo Jr., assigned to Buenavista town.

Javierto called the city police station for help at around 9 p.m. on Tuesday after a drunken Avillo started harassing his customers. But the drunken cop was able to leave the premises before the lawmen arrived.

Thirty minutes later, Avillo returned to the bar and again created trouble, Javierto said in his complaint.

Avillo was only pacified after his father, incumbent Lucena Councilor Felix Avillo Sr., arrived and took his son home.

De Leon said three months ago, he assigned Avillo, a former member of the Lucena City police station, to far-flung Buenavista as disciplinary action for abusive behavior. Delfin T. Mallari Jr., Inquirer Southern Luzon

    Just like erring priests, bad cops are merely assigned to other places instead of taking more serious actions.

    Senior Supt. de Leon, obviously, your cop PO3 Avilo Jr., did not learn from his mistake and continue to abuse his authority. Perhaps he needs to wake up as a civilian and find a job somewhere else.

    police power compounded by alcohol…is a deadly mixed…when u enable that kind of behavior for what ever reason then it will come to bite u later on…administrative leave until cleared.then if found guilty…fire him….all benefits forfeited…

    Oh its easy lets give them a good example by putting them in Luneta for firing squad to be watch by the people. This people is matapang lang sa mga taong civillian na walang baril pero duwag rin naman pag kalaban nila ay mga de baril rin eh.Takot rin.kayat marami sa kanila takot na takot na ma assign sa Mindanao eh bahag mga buntot. lalo na Jolo Basilan etc.

    Don’t reassign this policeman somewhere else, he will just create the same trouble there. The best thing to do is fire this erring cop and remove whatever benefits he should be getting.

    assign him to basilan or to bontoc let’s see how tough he is

    this is what happens when you give a badge and a gun to losers with an inferiority complex.

    agree with most of the posts below… dapat yan wag na ireassign, tanggalin na yan!!!

    It appears that it is time for this policeman to be booted out permanently from the force.
