How ‘salvaging’ started

By |


Whether murder suspect Nestor Delizalde Jr. was shot by a policeman—he allegedly grappled with the law enforcer to get the latter’s  gun—or he shot himself while in police custody, who cares?

The guy was reported to have mercilessly slit the throats of three women and didn’t show any remorse for his crime.

Delizalde’s victims—Evelyn Tan, 40, a bank executive; her mother, Teresa, 60, and their housemaid Cristina Partolay, 22—were found dead in their home on Yakal Street, Sta. Cruz, Manila, before dawn on Nov. 12.

What made Delizalde’s crime even worse was that he was a  barangay tanod (village watchman) who was sworn to protect  the people in his barangay.

Criminals like Delizalde who rob, kill or rape innocent citizens without mercy probably deserve the same fate as their victims.

* * *

A decade ago, a man was arrested while hiding in Davao City after he massacred a family of five in Antipolo, Rizal province.

Brought before then City Mayor Rody Duterte, the suspect said he was not sorry for butchering the family.

As he was  being brought  to the city police station, he was shot in the head by one of his police escorts at the steps of City Hall.

Nobody in the city raised  a howl of protest over the apparent execution of the crime suspect.

Davao City residents knew that the guy was executed to protect society, in general, and them, in particular, from criminal elements like that Antipolo mass murderer.

* * *

“Salvaging,” or the summary  execution of notorious criminals by policemen, is not a Filipino invention.

The Manila Police Department (MPD) copied  the practice  from the New York Police Department (NYPD) many years ago.

The tradition in the NYPD at the time—I wonder if they are still doing it now—was for a man who killed a New York City cop to be buried ahead of his policeman-victim.

During the time of  Manila Mayor Arsenio Lacson, a policeman  in his  city  who died in the line of duty was accorded a hero’s burial—the same way  a fallen NYPD member was honored—while his comrades-in-arms raced against time so the  killer could be killed before he was interred.

* * *

In the untold annals of the MPD, a Manila cop was killed during a robbery at the Motor Vehicles Office (MVO), precursor of the Land Transportation Office.

A suspect named Pagsibigan was taken in custody by a team led by then Sgt. Alfredo Lim, now Manila’s  mayor.

Pagsibigan was later found dead, with his throat slit,  at the Luneta, still a grassy and unlighted area at that time.

People in Manila at that time didn’t care who killed the cop-killer.

They were happy that a notorious criminal disappeared from their midst.

* * *

Vice President Jojo Binay says there is nothing wrong with having a political dynasty as long as members of a family holding elective positions are qualified.

His daughter, Nancy Binay, is running for senator in the 2013 elections.

Nancy, who has not held any elective position, is the tagapag-alaga (caregiver) of her mother, former Makati Mayor Elenita Binay.

When Nancy gets elected—which is certain, given her father’s popularity—she will be the first caregiver to become senator.

    Salvage has been going on since time immemorial.  Salvage was not limited to just bad guys who killed innocent civilians or cops; but also who opposed the church. 

    In the absence of Death Penalty which is the solution to the rampant heinous crimes even though just part of the solution, eliminating notorious criminals would be a good option.  But what about the VIP criminals who can afford to stay at VIP cell?  Who can fake illness and stay comfortably at chosen hospital?  Their cases are delayed while the victims continue to suffer and seek justice.  Example:  The Ampatuans.  Anyone who dares salvage any of the Ampatuans?

    Salvage means those who are in authority (usually policemen or their cohort vigilantes kuno), killing of accused, yet to be proven or not. Don’t tell me they don’t just kill anyone then tell the people the guy is a criminal.

      anong klaseng pagiisip ka………..anong mangyayari sa bansa natin kung lahat nang  senadores ay walang alam kung papaano gumawa nang batas…….wala talaga  kung lahat nang  kapuwa natin ay ganito ang pagiisip lalo tayong malulubog…..maawa naman kayo sa mga  kabataan na susunod sa ganyang klaseng pagiisip.

      • wawangpenoy

         Matagal na kong naawa sa mga kabataan. Katunayan nga noong bata pa ako naawa na ako sa sarili ko dahil alam kong lalaki ako sa bulok na lipunan. Ayan na nga. Buti na lang sinwerte akong maka punta dito sa US.

        Ubos na ang awa ko. Nag-aktibista ako noong panahon ni Marcos pero wala din. Mga dating aktibista katulad ni Gary Olivar, ay naging masugid na tagapagtanggol pa ni Estrada. Si Joma, yun, pahila-hilata lang sa Netherlands. Ang NPA mga naging bandido na. Si Norberto Gonzales, si Tiglao, Orly Mercado, at marami pang iba na puro kurakot na din.

        Ang pag-asa ng bayan ay tayo NGAYON. Hindi ang kabataan ng hinaharap. Kung papaano ang takbo ng Pilipinas sa hinaharap ay makikita sa 2013 elections. Pag may nanalo sa party ni Binay, that means, Philippines is doomed.

        I’ll say this again. If you add up all the money that was stolen by Marcos, Ramos, Estrada, Arroyo and P-noy’s KKK, it is nothing compared to what the Binays will steal if he gets the presidency. Hindi ko maintindihan si P-noy. Wala naman yatang batas na kailangan mong bigyan ng posisyon ang VP. Bakit ba hindi imberna yan sa isang tabi para di makapangampanya. Eh magmula ng umupong VP yan wala ng ginawa kundi mangampanya eh.

  • cdrcosta

    Tit for tat…Yin & yang…in this troubled time this is how justice should be meted out. These hardened criminals cannot idebe reformed regardless of how long they will serve their time in the slammer. Rather, it only makes them more dangerous when they get out owing to the new knowledge they learned from their fellow criminals they met while incarcenated, assuming that they still don’t know all the trade of their craft…which is robbing and killing innocent people among others. To those cops who eliminates these bad elements through any other means…I doff my hat on you.

    ” When Nancy gets elected—which is certain, given her father’s popularity—she will be the first caregiver to become senator.” – Ramon Tulfo (Phil. Daily Inquirer)

    Sa wakas tumama ka rin! Singko mo nanalo ng barko!   LOL!!!!

    Political Dynasty or “Poli psycho Dynasty” – sa tagalog mga sira ulong politiko, inutil at walang laman ang ulo, alimangong politiko!

    Masakit tanggapin ang katotohanan, kung pupuwede lang na magkaroon ng “mock election” bago ang tunay na eleksiyon, siguro magkakaroon tayo ng kaunting basehan kung sino ang nararapat na iboto ng mga tao, sa dahilang walang perang involve. Kung magkaroon man, malaking gastos sa parte ng mga politikong magbibili ng boto, hindi lang siguro doble baka triple pa ka mo. Kung mahalal man ang pulitikong ito, matatagalan para mabawi ang pinambili ng boto and at the same time kurakot kaliwat kanan ang gagawin and this will be his demise dahil madali na siyang mabibisto ng mga tao.

  • batchmatters

    I agree with Mon Tulfo about the need to mete out quick justice to murder suspects like Delizalde. That way, we would cleanse out the society of  criminals like him while sparing the country enormous amount of time and resources to bring them to justice. The problem though is that this procedure will only be applied to poor suspects. The well off suspects meanwhile would as usual buy their freedom or delay justice with the use of their wealth and extensive connections including those with journalists.

    Your arguments over the killing suspected criminal is fine with me, but think again Mr. Tuflo – how do you reconcile that with constitutional provision on  presumption of innocence. You proffered that you are law abiding, then why are writing a crap?

    How about the question of “the suspect was shot to silence him about his partners in crime”? How we will know if he is alone or maybe with the same policemen who shot him? Is this kind of justice you’re pushing Mr. Tulfo? I hope you reply, I really want to know if you really is that shallow????

  • stealth ice

    the increase in crime rates in Philippines is due to CHR. everytime Law abiding citizen killed by worthless criminals the CHR is silent. But every criminal dies the CHR will always in the forefront to protect the rights of the criminals.

    CHR should be abolished already for they are not in the interest of the law abiding citizens but on the interest of criminals.

    Commission on Human Right no more. it’s Criminal Human Right already.

    VM Duterte was right when he said to CHR “dont make us impotent in fighting criminals”

    Tulfo is right. who cares who killed and how criminals killed. for as long they were killed it’s fine with me. these criminals have no right to live. if these criminals will not be neutralized then expect another victim. I hope the family or love ones of those who uphold the due process in favor of criminals will be victimize by the criminals who they protected. thats the best lesson you guys will experienced.

    Delizalde Jr. who massacred an entire family may deserved his fate. What about the criminal police who decided to be the jury and executioner of Delizalde? He committed a crime too and it is also cold blooded killing because his victim is handcuffed behind his back making him defenseless. Does the policeman deserved to be shot in the head too? When will it stop? 

    That is why we have policemen who are suppose to uphold the law and mete the criminals what they deserve under the LAW. We are a nation of Law not a lawless nation.

    Following your logic, perhaps we can make the Ampatuans and the rest of the accused in the massacre of journalists 3 years ago ride the same MPD Execution mobile one by one and save our justice system a ton of money and hurt on the part of the victims’ families..but we know that’s not going to happen..but on the other hand a very poor and unrepentant murderer is a walking dead.

    Following Tulfo’s logic, dapat pala sinalvage na rin ung grupo ni Webb dahil sa pagkasangkot sa Vizconde massacre. Pero teka, may iba pang sinasangkot dito: ung mga trabahador na gumagawa malapit sa mga vizconde. Isalvage na rin! Baka meron pang susulpot na masasabit sa kaso, isalvage na rin.

    Not that I care so much about the person, but I care so much about the system. I quit believing in vigilanteism or dark justice when I started dreaming for a civilized Philippines. We should condemn barbaric acts and demand for a just system. If we condone these barbaric acts, how should we treat these barbarians? Heroes? If we do that, we are contributing to the breakdown of whatever justice system we are left with.

    The maligno obviously contradicted himself if tulfo is credible when he (binay) said that there’s nothing wrong with political dynasty if members of the family are qualified.

    As mon intimated, nancy’s only experience is as caregiver of her mother, and therefore not qualified to be in the August Hall of the Senate where the likes of salonga, diokno, recto, rodrigo, pelaez, padilla, tañada, aquino, and many other greats used to argue in the highest standards of a seasoned and knowledgeable parliamentarian.

    Nancy is destined to join the silent committee of lapid-revilla but binay doesn’t care at all.  He only cares for his family and the additional wealth that a senator earns in 6-year term.

    Don’t vote for nancy, jv, gringo, jackie, ernie, mitos, & migz… 

  • PhoenixPoliticalParty

    My thanks to the author for some insight into the origin of the term, as we come to know it in the Philippines,  and the historical bit involving New York cops.

    “Salvage”, however, has formal meanings, one of which is -”to save something of worth or merit from a situation or event that is otherwise
    a failure”.

    Convicted criminals(of heinous crimes) should no doubt be handed the death penalty.  However, too swift the sword,  and we may lose the truth.   What if he was just a pawn?  How then do we go after the masterminds?

    There may also be experiments involving lobotomy,  use of truth serum, etc. wherein the convict may still prove of some worth to society,  by exposing the chain of everyone involved in the crime,  the places where crime/s may still be going on,  short of terminating his life,  without prejudice to constitutional prohibition of cruel and inhumane punishment.

    If majority of the bloggers wants the principle of “tooth for a tooth” which I think is part of sharia Islamic law, then, why do we need a Court in the first place? It’s pure and simple, you steal, I chop you hands, if you kill, same, you will be killed by stoning. The problem is you people does not realize the gravity of corruption here in the Philippines. Our politicians steals or cheat by the billions, yet, none of you ever voice out your objection. Billions of pesos is equal to more than a thousand lives. You people should go to our public hospitals, like San Lazaro and Orthopedics. These two government hospital is more like a “Killter hospital” because more chances than not, a poor patient dies because of lack of medicine and immediate attention from the physicians. Death occurs everyday because the budget of these government hospitals are being stolen by transferring the funds from them for other purposes. Now, who is the biggest killer, the lone killer who wipe-out the entire family or the thousands of unattended patients in our public hospitals who ended up dead? He he he. Myopic o narrow minded ang nakikita ninyo. Ganggabutil sa tunay na problema ng bansa. Dahil sa kawalan ng pagkakataong kumita upang mabuhay, marami sa atin ang gumagawa ng krimen. Not that I tolerate the criminals, but let us be civilized. Same in corruption in the government, nobody lands in jail.

    I’m an independent Candidate here in Q.C. precisely because I will fight it even if it is an uphill battle so that if I win, I will throw all those big and high and mighty corrupt officials here in Q.C to the jail. Tignan nalang ninyo ang ginawa ni Mayor Bistek at ibang government elected officials. Dagsa ang dami ng sasakyan na may pangalan nila ang binibigay sa mga Barangay Councils. Bistek donated 1,000,000 pesos per vehicle to all the 143 barangays here in Q.C. For what? Precisely to advertise himself because he placed his big face on these vehicle. Ang nakalagay sa sasakyan, “General Mobilization.” He he he. May gera ba” May dambuhalang kalamidad ba? Wala!

    In fact, every time there is a caucus or convention of Barangay Chairman here in Q.C., they use these vehicle. He he he. Magkano lang ba ang sahod ni Bistek? P 15,500/mo. basic salary. O, mantakin mo pinaghatihatian ng dating Mayor ang pondo ng Q.C. January 2010, 5 months before election on May 2010. Mayor Belmonte Jr. 3 billion pesos (P 3,000.000.000.00), and bawat Q.C. Councilor, 43 milllion pesos (P 43,000,000.00) Magkano ang basic salary ng Q.C. Councilor? P14,300 pesos per month. Mantakin mo ang disparity ng kanilang pork barrel sa sahod nila? Saan ginastos ang pera ng Councilors? Doon sa mga passenger waiting sheds with their big names painted on top for election purposes? Ano, sino ang higit na Kriminal, ang isang killer o ang matataas na government officials natin? This is one reason why our Lord Jesus Christ was born in a mangier, sa sabsaban,, sa mahirap, dahil alam niya ang problema. Sa hirap, krimen ay dumadami. 

    Moral value is a luxury for the rich, because they do not have to struggle to earn a living.  On the other hand, crime is a necessity for the poor, particularly in the depress area because they too want to survive. It is a human jungle between the predator and the victim. 

    Before anything else, we have to punish those rich people who still aren’t contented with their wealth, like participating in expanding their political dynasty. We need the Freedom of information so that people will know that they are just being fooled by their politicians. Citing an example, Angara of Aurora. Do you know that his family is the biggest illegal log smuggler around. How much does a Congressman’s salary is? Only P38,000/mo. basic salary! :Yet, the young Congressman can built a house worth 120 million pesos mansion!

    God save our country form our corrupt Chinese Dominated Government! .

    Extra-judicial killing happens when there is a system breakdown in society, especially when the policemen are corrupt, the justice system does not work, and there is an apparent lack of good governance.  Since P. Aquino took office there has been a rise in extra-judicial killings.

    • zeroko

      P. Aguino is a Chinese. He does not care about Filipino lives. In H.L., many who rallied for the return of the land to farmers just disappeared. The whole place was turned into a war-zone like by placing many military check-points. “Sabi nga ng kaibigan ko, ginawang fertilizer na raw ang mga nawala.”

Para sa akin di bale isalvage lahat ang mga kreminal para hindi na makapangbiktima pa ng mga inosente. Siguro isa ka sa mga krimenal kaya galit ka sa salvaging ng mga pusakal..

    Salvaging is not just to eliminate the criminal himself but to save the bigger fish….. but while masterminds are free crime keep dwelling!

  • Lala Sandones

    If it is 100 % sure that a criminal is guilty of murder, he should be dealt with swiftly.  In fact, when a criminal is being executed he is treated very very very much better than when he killed his victim(s). The Human Rights Commission is always investigating “salvaging”; why doesn’t it also investigate the criminals, who, if they did not start the problem, then there would be peace? 

    I think that if a person murdered somebody, then he should also be executed. Ang daming Pinoy, ano ba kung matigok na lahat ng criminal? Sa sobra na dami natin, mawala man ang 1 million criminales, hindi natin sila mami-miss.

    • zeroko

      The problem is that there are many innocent criminals who were wrongly sent to the electric chair. REMEMBER THAT! One hundred percent sure is the job of the Justice system and NO ONE ELSE!

        can you give one example of an innocent victim that was wrongly executed in the phils?

    Better ask Mayor Duterte of what are we going to do with the CRIMINALS of our society.

      Vice Mayor Duterte will sooner or later answer this crime, if no here, in hell.

    ang hirap sa salvaging, baka inosente ang patayin.  basta ba siguradong siguradong sigurado kayo na ang sinasalvage ninyo ay ang may-sala, ok lang.

    dapat lang patayin ang mga kriminal ..dapat tularan ang bayang tulad ng davao at manila

    if the pnp truly are concerned about the safety of the people and needed to eliminate all the violent criminals, then why are the number of convicted criminals increasing instead of decreasing? case in point are the ampatuans, why haven’t the police salvaged any of the ampatuans when every pinoy already know that the are guilty as hell in the massacre of the mangudadatu’s and their entourage which included media people???? the answer is simple – the police pick and choose the people they salvage – kung mahirap ka at walang koneksyon malamang salvage ang aabutin mo pero pag mayaman ka at may koneksyon, aalagaan ka pa ng mga parak na yan!
