Police shocked at officer’s involvement in Quezon shootout

MANILA, Philippines – Authorities could not confirm yet if  the police officer killed in a shootout in Atimonan, Quezon Sunday  afternoon was part of  the suspected gun-for hire gang, whose members  were also killed in the encounter.

Chief Superintendent James  Melad, regional police director  in Calabarzon, told  Radyo Inquirer   990AM that  they have no “inkling” yet if  Superintendent Alfredo Perez Consemino was part of  the group killed in the shootout or whether  or not he was involved  in  any criminal activity.

Melad said Consemino was a group director at the Mimaropa regional police.

“Hindi alam ng tropa na nandoon si Consemino. Basta yung  grupo na yan  involved in certain criminal activities, ang sabi pa gun-for-hire,” he said during the  interview.

“Hindi ko nga alam kung bakit nadoon  si Consemino. Doon lang namin nalaman… na si Supt. Consemino pala yun.  Wala pang inkling na sya ay kasama sa grupo,” he further said.

Melad said they have no information yet about the slain   officer but said, “The thing  is, nandoon sya at the time na nagkaroon ng engkwentro.”

He maintained that the suspects were the first to fire at the  law enforcers when they refused to submit to a checkpoint by the  police.

The   police retaliated, killing 13 persons, including Consemino.

    Ganun ba yun? The cops manning the check point didn’t have time to ask for their identifications because the suspects fired at them, the police claimed in a report. Hence, the police official was one of those killed. Sino ba yung nag bigay ng tip sa check point police? Bakit di sinabi ng tipster na me mga opisyal ng pulis na sakay dyan sa Pajero vehicles?

    If by 3pm this afternoon the PNP will still have nothing definitive to say regarding this matter PNP Chief Purisima must resign. How can a PNP check point task to flag down suspected syndicates as tipped by a high caliber intelligence source so brazenly engaged two SUVs killing all passengers including a police officer yet cannot report to the public the whys and wherefores 24 hours after the event? Are our police force this incompetent? And why is the Army part of the encounter? Are they now part of the police force of Atimonan, Quezon?

    • Twister12

      You failed to mention that they fired first. What do you expect embrace the incoming bullets with open arms?

      • 1GeorgeTolentino2

        How do you know who fired 1st and if the SUV convoy stopped or not. Dead men tell no tales. Now here are the facts; one of the victims is my good friend and the former Municipal Administrator of Sariaya, he was a known community leader and used to head a very respected NGO in Mt. Banahaw. Another civilian victim is a personal enemy of the lone Policeman in the checkpoint. As of now,  all information as to who fired first, the motives, etc. are all speculations.

    • http://Yahoo.com/ Ragdeleafar

      Baka naman ang nag tip ay ang kasabwat ng sindikato na nag set-up at ang napatay ay sila ang tumutugis sa sindikato ng ‘gun-for-hire’ dahil sa tip din ng una at ang nag leader ng check point ay ang member/protector of the group, complicated ….nagkabuhol buhol na issue? Who check who, tip by whom to kill who knows to much of the operation of whom as ordered by whom!!!!

  • milespacker

    Naloko na. Hindi pala alam kung sino ang nakasakay sa SUVs. Pero if the occupants fired first, would knowing who were in the vehicles change the outcome?  Maaring nadamay, we do not know. Maraming questions.

    Kung alam nilang kapwa pulis, would the story be different? Even if they were suspects according to “intel?”

    • Magsasaka

       intel failed, those killed were part of intel

      • milespacker

        Are you sure? Where did you get your info? If what you say is true, then this has to be one major cluster f**k!

    • Jane Tan

      If Consemino was there undercover, he would be an intelligence agent. And if intel says that those in the vehicles are suspects, we can derive the following:

      1) Consemino may not be there undercover
      2) or Intel’s intel is screwed-up
      3) and/or we have a bunch of trigger-happy cops

      • milespacker

         I think you can say that it was all of the above Jane.

      • Jane Tan

        we can, but the police may take awhile in admitting it lol

      • billy gunner

         unfortunately for consemino, undercover cops are not high ranking officers so as to avoid blowing their cover.

        Sa tutuo lang, am shocked that a ranking police officer from MIMAROPA Region ay kasali sa ganitong klaseng trabaho. Ipinanganak ako sa MIMAROPA Region, eh so merong affinity ako sa lugar.
        Importante talaga ang recruitment process sa mga nag apply sa pagka pulis at sa military establishment.
        Marami ang criminal minded that joins the police organizatin or the military service so that they could legitimately carry firearms to execute their sinister activities.
        Dapat nga siguro sa ganitong encounter ang policy ay “take no prisoners” but to eliminate them outright para malipol silang lahat.
        Magastos pa ang court proceedings, pakainin pa habang nasa kulungan.
        Restore death penalty for crimes such as this.

    Hmm.. the unfortunate police officer must just be hitch-riding in the SUV..

  • nti_boohaya

    This thing is getting more interesting or should I say more fooked up.  What happened to the other vehicle that fired at the troops but got away?  Some of the barbershop regulars mentioned in jest that it was either a deal or ops gone bad or eliminating rivals ala Capone. With that said, sana gawin lagi ng PNP ng ganitong operasyon para mabawasan ang mga salot basta wag lang i recycle ang mga nahuhuling droga.

    Another thing is that one of the reports on PDI indicated that the alleged gunmen rolled down the windows before firing. But looking at the vehicle in the picture, classic na ambush yan. Shoot first before asking questions. Afterall, dead men tell no tales.

  • batangpaslit

    the police officer in the picture, is he a member of the team that the criminal gang fired upon?
    my concern, is:
    are our policemen not provided with bullet proof vests and ballistic helmets to protect them from the blazing gun of the criminals?
    it is a big investment to train a good police officer, but their lives are wasted when they are not properly equipped to engage in firefight

    • buttones

      Good point- many a police force are supplied with kevlar vests, even in less violent countries than PH- clearly we don’t have the money for this sort of protection for all officers on patrol….or maybe nobody has thought about this simple protection?

      • batangpaslit

        sayang naman Bro ang pinag aralan nila sa Police Academy o sa Baguio Academny kung hindi nila naisip na ang bravery ay hindi lang sa walang takot sa putok ng bala, kundi marunong din sa mga bagay how to protect themselves to get out from harms way.
        at any rate, pasalamat na rin ako na walang fatal na disgrasya sa tunay na pulis at sundalo that manned the checkpoint.

    • WeAry_Bat

       po, siguro alam mo na yun sa panahon ni GMA?  bumili ang PNP ng vests pero tumagos ang bala ng handgun?

      handgun lang yun ha, hindi naman required ang rifle.

      kaya sabi ng review committee, kung sino man sa PNP magpabili ng bulletproof vest, dapat isusuot nila ang choice nila at magpabaril sila.

      hanggang ngayon, wala pa atang magmalakas loob at kaya wala pang bulletproof vest.

        eh, kung alam nila na ang vest ay hindi maka pigil ng Cal .22 bullet, di, wala ring silbi nga. pabigat lang sa katawan kung hindi man lang maka bigay ng protection.

  • superpilipinas

    PH government, until today, could not make PNP be perceived as a generally clean organization.

    No leader seems to be competent, credible, and courageous enough to institutionalize reforms that can make people see and believe improvements are happening. 

    Napolcom and internal affairs seems to be unable to do anything.

    I’m not surprised if ours is among the poorest performing in Asia.

  • AllinLawisFair

    Criminal elements engaged in the carnap, robbery, illegal drug trade or kidnap for ransom operations become bolder and more aggressive whenever a member or members of the police or the military are part of their activities.

    It is safe to assume that the slain Superintendent Alfredo Perez Consemino was a member or possibly the leader of the alleged criminal group.

    If that is true, we shed no tears in his death. At least one bad apple less in the basket.

      • http://www.pulisnapogi.blogspot.com/ Pulis Na Pogi

        i do not know personally the personalities involved but based on the statements of the supervisors (general melad, val de leon, etc), it smacks of a set-up-gone-wrong.  In an operations as big as this, both due to the number of persons involved and their alleged notoriety, it is but imperative for the operating units to have the complete data of the targets.

        I think the report is true that marantan killed these people because they are the rivals of his brother in the bookies operations of southern tagalog.  this could be the same reason why the 6 juetengeros from san juan were also killed in calamba last november 13, 2012 by–you guessed it right–marantan!

    ANO DAW?

  • Hey_Dudes

    All the more there should not have been an encounter due to the presence of police and military on the two vehicles who were cautioned to stop at a check point?  Unless these police and military personnel are of the dumbest kind becoming police officers and soldiers through connections, they should have known the rules of engagement.  If Police officers and soldiers cannot understand a simple command to stop when another group of security officers request you to do so, then the likelihood of a shootout will occur and it did? What can be more simpler than this?

    • koolkid_inthehouse

      The two vehicles were stopped and once passengers were identified the massacre started.  No chance for people onboard the vehicles.  Two vehicles if driving away from the check point has a chance of survivors.  Whoever are the passengers the result is a massacre not a shootout.  The wounds sustained by one checkpoint guard could be self inflicted to justify the massacre.  Maybe the those onboard the vehicle are after jueteng lords.

    Mar Roxas was right when he bluntly accused recently, some of the PNP officers in front of Pampanga Gov, Leila Pineda, wife of known Jueteng lord Bong Pineda re Jueteng protection . That’s bull’s eye!

    Kung nalaman pa nila na nandoon si Consemino what are they going to do, will they stop the firing? It’s puzzling indeed.

    If a Hansel Marantan is involved, you can be sure it is a dirty thing.
    Remember Pasig and Bicol?

  • opinyonlangpo

    The killers are guilty. Cover up cover up cover up, a big police cover up. Either they were ordered to kill or there is a conflict of interest.

    A wake-up call for Aquino to finally focus on fixing the problem with ‘jueteng’ or is this incident still not enough for him to stop ignoring this problem.

    With so many doubts stemming out in this kind of operation, why not the leadership of PNP creates a centralized system that will specifically focus on Checkpoints?  So before their men will conduct a checkpoint all the details will be forwarded first to the COMMAND CENTER in that way those who are manning the center will get a pre-information of the legitimacy of the operation and for them to monitor the activity!  

    Right now if I’m not mistaken only those who are involved in the operation know all the details, what if it is an unlawful activity like HULIDAP or RUBOUT?  It is hard for those innocent victims to dispute the authorities especially if they have planted false evidences against you!

    With today’s technology there should be real-time updates of what’s going on in the field.  Gathering of real-time actions through video camera must be compulsory like in the U.S. where most of their police mobiles are equipped with cameras!   Till this day the PNP lags behind in every aspects, are they doing BRA1NSTORM1NG? 

    A checkpoint in the Philippines is one of the most dangerous places that you don’t want to be present especially if you will base it from the news reports.  With CR00K POLICEMEN manning the checkpoints you wouldn’t know what will happen to you next!

    Transparency must be mandatory every time the PNP & AFP are conducting such activities!

      Agree ako sa sinabi mo pero mahirap maubos ang mababahong lahi nila dahil halos buong PNP ay nangangamoy.

      ang kaso, me mga civilian naman sa mga namatay…

  • ryan andres

    Katulisan…ermmm…kapulisan na naman… tsk tsk tsk… 

    …and come to think of it, di naman aamin yang mga pulpulis natin na sila yung naunang bumaril eh… Look at the pictures – the car windows are all shot up, meaning sarado sila nung niratrat ng bala. 

    Tangna talagang mga gunggong nating PNP – Palpak na Pulpulis.

    Diversion Highway in Atimonan Quezon has a quiet and panoramic view of the sea going to Daet. It avoids the Bitukang Manok Road Short-cut.

    Sabi sa news kahapon, lahat daw ulo ang tama. kagaling naman nina marantan, closed na yun mga bintana, headshot parin!!!!!!

  • generalproblem

    sayang naman yung montero. sa susunod pwede ba na pababain nyo na lang yung sakay saka nyo patayin para mapakinabangan naman yung sasakyan baging bago pa naman yata.

  • Komen To

    “Police shocked at officer’s involvement in Quezon shootout” How can PNP do an impartial investigation if the cops were already judged as involved? If you are the lowest ranking police investigator, would you go against the statement of the chief?

    In end end, the result will say, “all aboard committed suicide”

  • pedronimo

    Gina-gago ng PNP ang madlang tao. Kung “shootout” yan, makikita naman sa mga tama ng bala sa SUV kung papalabas o papasok and direction ng bala, diba? Second, mga deadshots pala ang mga pulis kasi na puruhan sa ulo lahat ang kalaban, pero wala man lang na dedo sa mga nag-checkpoint, Congrats!

  • scorpio15

    SHOCKED?????? Luma na yan.
    Kaya ang mga Kapulisan at Militar (hindi naman lahat) ay yumayaman dahil ang sueldo ay pangkape la-ang.
    Ang pinaka-Trabaho ay Proteksiyon at iba pang Illegal na Malakas ang akyat ng Pera.

    paki-hanap yung third SUV…baka makatulong sa investigation.  Also, paki move yung SUV’s involved masyadong halata na maganda ang pag ka park, kc kung makikipagbarilan at being shot at medyo suguro magtatangka kang tumakbo laban sa sure death shootout.

    Taasan kasi ang sweldo ng kapulisan at bigyan ng decent housing at educational funds for their children para hindi sila gumawa ng illegal at maki-monkey business sa mga kawatan at mafia. ang pondo kasi na para sa bayan at pagpapa-buti ng society ay ninanakaw ng mga bwayang senadores, kongresistas at mga masisibang liderato sa mga bayan-bayan. bulok na bayan bulok na kapulisan bulok na mambabatas. kawawa ang future generation. magbago na tayong lahat!

    • tatay

      naku, napaka taas na ang sweldo ng pulis at sundalo. marami pang privileges. subukan mong mag research ng sweldo civilian vs pulis. may mga civilian dyan na ang work ay mas mahirap pa sa pulis, pero napakababa ang sweldo. casual pa. yang mga senador, congressmen ang babaan ng sweldo at alowances.
