Marantan: I am the collateral damage



The police officer who led the intelligence operation against alleged “jueteng” operator Victor Siman felt that his superiors in the Philippine National Police had turned their backs on him after the reported encounter that left 13 people dead in Atimonan town in Quezon on Jan. 6.

“I am the collateral damage,” Supt. Hansel Marantan said when controversy began to rage after the killings.

“With this kind of investigation, I am not happy [about it],” Marantan told the Philippine Daily Inquirer Tuesday by his bedside at St. Luke’s Medical Center in Taguig City, where he was brought for treatment of bullet wounds he sustained in the Atimonan encounter.

Marantan, 42, was among those behind Coplan (case operation plan) “Armado” on which the operation was based and was the ground commander in a team of 41 policemen and Army soldiers involved in the reported gun battle. He insisted that Siman’s group was flagged down at a legitimate checkpoint.

Siman, according to the coplan, was an operator of  illegal gambling and leader of a private armed group in Southern Tagalog.

PAOCC funding

The plan was submitted to the Presidential Anti-Organized Crime Commission (PAOCC) headed by Executive Secretary Paquito Ochoa Jr., Marantan said, along with a request to release P900,000 (not P300,000 as earlier reported) as funding support.

The PAOCC board, he added, approved the fund release and in fact already gave his group P100,000 after the November operation in Calamba City in Laguna province.

The PAOCC said the request was disapproved. Marantan, however, insisted that the operation would proceed even if the release of funds was stopped.

“Instead of talking to the members of the operating team, what did our commanding officers do? They listened to the media and then said it was a rubout. Did they even talk to us?” Marantan said in Filipino.

“Those of us on the ground, we get hurt, too,” he said, referring to initial reports from the PNP fact-finding committee.

The families of some of the fatalities have claimed that their loved ones included legitimate businessmen and an environmentalist.

Character assassination

Also on Tuesday, a former “hit man” of Siman who later became Marantan’s informant, said all those slain in Atimonan were involved either as middleman or negotiator for Siman.

“The only people who might not have been involved [in the bookies operations] were the three drivers and bodyguards,” said the informant, who spoke on condition of anonymity. He was referring to Conrado Decillo, Gerry Siman and Leonardo Marasigan, who were distant relatives of Siman.

Marantan said he was a victim of “character assassination,” pointing out that his previous cases had tainted the ongoing investigation. He and Supt. Glenn Dumlao, who was the case coordinator of Armado, were implicated in past cases of police rubouts.

Chief Supt. James Melad, the regional director who approved the operation plan, was relieved from his post on Tuesday.

Only he, Melad, Dumlao and three other intelligence officers in the Calabarzon knew about it because of the “sensitivity” of the case, Marantan said. The case, he pointed out, involved a mayor in Batangas and other police officers believed to be on the take from illegal gambling.

    Marantan you are not a collateral damage you are a damaged human being.  You are ill educated and a murderer.  Those victims guilty or not do not deserved to be executed they are people not animals or objects.

    • felipe

      criminal against criminal, let them kill each other..whether it is a rubout, ambush, shootout  or whatever….the country would be better if they are all exterminated……

      • tagalinis

        and who will exterminate the exterminator?

  • pogi

    Marantan you should be the one to be executed now. You’re nothing but a criminal in nature.

    Consequently,you’re just after the money to steal and be a part of another syndicate.

    You are a trigger happy killer. You have no mercy.

    Just wait, someone os going to kill you in your bed this week.

    Your time is up. You don’t deserve to live…murderer.

  • Colokoy

    saludo ako sayo marantan., halata kung sinong nabigyan ni siman ng jueteng payola: police officer kasama ng jueteng lord, environmentalist kasama ng illegal mining operator (to be?). Hay lord this is tuwid na daan

    • aeon888

      Saludo ka kay marantan. Eh alam naman ng buong taga Quezon Province na mismong kapatid nyang babae  na si Tita ay jueteng operator din. Kaya ginamit ni Marantan ang pagiging pulis para ubusin ang kumpetisyon sa jueteng sa lugar.

      Kung hindi lang sana jueteng operator yung kapatid ni Marantan, eh di marami pa siguro ang sisimpatiya sa kanya.


    everybody believes it is a rubout and marantan should be hanged

      sabi ni ninoy noon, ang mga kriminal pag dumampot ng baril illegal then he can shoot them like a dog if ever he became president.

      so, doon ka sa legal or persons with authority magtiwala.

      • J

        like the ampatuans?

      • indiots

      • J

        … ang issue yung pagtitiwala sa authority… tsaka yung mga nabaril sa atimonan alleged criminals pa lang.

      • indiots

      • felipe

        ano ang gagawin mo kung” rogue animal” o asong may rabies ang kaharap mo….the mere fact that the victims are also heavily armed speaks a lot !!! kung malinis ang pagka-tao nila bakit may mga dalang malalakas na armas ????

  • superpilipinas

    how do you justify killing all 13 by a much bigger and heavier armed team?

    was the last man breathing firing his gun to the last breath? did they allow the last man breathing to surrender? i seriously doubt that. seems like they ceased firing when they used up all their bullets.

    the only believable angle was that it was first an ambush and then a rubout.

    but even with all the above disregarded, it was a poor operation and he should be relieved and given a desk job. there should be more officers who can operate better. if they can’t find them, then the problem is bigger, there is a systemic training failure and PNP should be radically revamped and reorganized from the ground up.

    What I don’t get is, there’s so much dirt flying around about you, how do you still have a job???

  • aeon888

    Obvious naman talaga na ambush yun. At sa bintang ni Marantan na unang nagpaputok yung mga biktima sa loob ng kotse ay hindi kapani-paniwala.

    Una, bakit naman magpaputok ng una yung mga nasa loob ng SUV eh pawang mga lisensyado naman yung mga baril nila.

    Pangalawa, Alam naman ni Vic Siman at ni Supt. Consemino na kahit na dakpin pa sila ng mga nasa checkpoint ay makakalaya din naman sila kasi may pera at koneksyun si Vic Siman, at si Supt Consemino ay isang high ranking officer na legal na magbitbit ng baril nya. They don’t want to risk a firefight na alam nilang dehado sila.

    Pangatlo, kahit sinong bobo o rambo ay hindi unang magpapaputok sa mga taga checkpoint especially na outnumbered, outgunned at nasa loob sila ng sasakyan na disadvantage location para lumaban.

    Pang-apat, kung talagang gusto nilang makipagbarilan, eh di nag silabasan sana sila lahat sa mga SUV at nagtago sa gilid nito para maganda yung counter ambush location nila. Kaso sa crime scene photos mukhang niratrat habang nakasakay at nagpapalamig sa aircon ng Montero kasi mainit sa alas 3 ng hapon yung panahon na iyon.

    Panglima, di mga trained hired gun for hires daw kuno yung mga bodyguards ni Vic Siman at kasama pa mga trained Air force soldiers at police escorts, eh bakit si Marantan lang ang natamaan sa kabila? Baka naman blank bullets ang dala ng mga taga SUV hehehe

    • felipe

      kuro-kuro !!!!

    • Kaloy

       Ambush man o rubout at least nabawasan ang galamay ng gambling lords at ang malinaw na protectors. Mga dispalinghado na ang pag-iisip ng mga bayarang nakikinabang sa kawlanghiyaan ng mga salot sa lipunann.

      Nakakahiya na talaga ang ang mga nakikinabang sa kawatang mga gambling lords at army protectors, nababaligta ang istorya. Pati si Gambling Lord Vic Aman gusto pang palabasing collateral damage.

      Kung gusto ninyong malaman ang tunay na pagkatao ni Aman sana dumalaw kayo sa burol niya at isaisahin kung sinosino nagpadala ng corona at bulaklak. Lahat ng nakinabang  sa salot na illegal gambling.

  • batangsulpok

    Sobrang lumaki ang ulo nitong si Marantan dahil sa dami ng kasong kinasangkutan na may mga sibilyan pang damay sa mga napatay tulad ng mag-ama sa Paranaque ay kinonsente ng matataas na pinuno ng PNP kaya akala niya, lahat ng gawin ay ok lang na walang magtatanong o magbubusisi at panahon na para ibulgar kung sino ang mga padrino niya kasi isa siya sa sumisira sa image ng PNP na sirang sira na.

    • aeon888

      Oo nga, may pasabi pa itong si Marantan na “I am the collateral damage.” Dapat nga magpasalamat sya na isa syang BUHAY na collateral damage, eh yung mag-amang OFW at batang babae na namatay sa shootout nila Marantan sa Paranque ay mga PATAY na collateral damage. Kawawa naman sila.

    • indiots

      oo nga. dapat sa mga pulis pinalalampas na lang nila ang mga sindikato na yan… hindi pa masisira ang pagkaprofessional nila ayan tuloy sibak pa sa pwesto.

      mga holdaper, mga riding in tandem na yan, mga drugs syndicate at mga gun for hire at mga operator na yan ng huweting, palampasin na lang yan… everybody happy… walng sibakan, at walang patayan.

  • Jaime

    Where are you NPA’s?  why is this man not in the top of your list?  Is sparrow unit or your justice just a myth?


    so you are collateral damage? lucky your still alive,what you guys did was an execution,those SUV’s stopped and it was not a running gun battle,they were inside the vehicles and you outnumbered them.That is how you make an arrest put them in body bags and ask questions later.congratulations and good luck and we hope justice is not yet blind in this country

    Another ‘police operations dramatic effect’ – inflicting a gunshot wound on himself  just to justify a failed operation.  How can it be when no powder burns were discovered from those alleged suspects? 

    • speaksoftlylove

       Meron namang powder burns yong mga patay. Kaya lang doon mismo sa mga sugat, at yong iba sa pagitan pa ng dalawang mata, indicating close range summary execution.

  • wawa2172

    Only he, Melad, Dumlao and three other intelligence officers in the

    Marantan said.

    Sabi ko na nga ba kakuntsaba si Dumlao sa Atimonan Massacre at Batangas rubout. Maratnan who have in his record have elimated 40 plus people on earth should be kicked out of service because of obviously his operations did not have the authorization of the higher ups.

  • tagalinis

    and why doesn’t he allow to have himself physically examined?

  • maximus_meridius

    Marantan, matutuwa pa kami siguro sayo kung yung ni ratrat mo ay sina Ochoa at Abigail Valde.

  • speaksoftlylove

    Brain damaged not collateral damage. Mas masahol pa doon sa isang kilala kong nagtatalak dahil di binigyan ng kendi.

  • indiots

    dapat talaga magkaroon ng batas pabor sa mga kreminal. upang my guidelines ang mga pulis.

    halimbawa kapag off duty o nakasibilyan, hubad rin ang kanilang pagka=awtoridad.
     o kaya pagnakita ang isang wanted ng medyo lampas na sa normal working hours hindi na dapat hulihin.

    mga ganung batas, di ba? upang di nagagalaw ang mga kreminal na yan. kawawa naman lalo at may mga pamilya din.

  • cute79

    may duda ako kay marantan dahil ayaw nya paexamin,baka may tinatago sya???

      Kaya ayaw maimbestigahan ng NBI kasi mabibisto sya na plano nya talaga na patayin ung mga kalaban.  Kahit tanga siguro e hindi maniniwala na shootout ang nangyari sa dami ng grupo ni Marantan.. may mga pulis na.. pero mas madami pa ang sundalo.. at dun pa sila nakapuwesto sa isang lugar samantalang 3 ung checkpoint na inilagay nila.. At mani lang kay Maratrat ang pagpatay.. dati na pala niyang gawain..

    • UPnnGrd

  • speaksoftlylove

    Kung informant ni Marantan si Mang Pandoy Morales, bakit sinalvage ng Calabarzon Police si Mang Pandoy samantalang ang Regional Chief dyan ay si Melad na kasama ni Dumlao at Marantan sa “Kupalan Operation?”

    Dalawa lang ang ibig sabihin nito:

    1. May malagim na gyera na dyan sa loob ng PNP dahil sa agawan ng balwarte sa jueteng; or

    2. Maraming alam si Mang Pandoy sa Kupalan Operation lalo na sa sideline (or main profession) ng mga PNP sa Calabarzon dahil nagjudas nga siya kay Siman.

    Tingin ko mas may rason yong pangalawa dahil sa takot nitong grupo nila Melad, Dumlao, Marantan at iba pa na magkabistuhan na dahil sa full blown investigation ay minabuti nilang isaisahing todasinb yong mga informer. This is the reason why Roxas relieved Melan and the Calabarzon Police.

  • Hey_Dudes

    Security men all over the country reading developments over this incident must now be thinking, what exactly is government and people expect us to do on this gut wrenching issue of combating criminality?  If they do not do their work they are criticized being just a body wearing uniforms and are residents of pancitans?  When they do their work base on what their leadership orders them to do, they are quickly criticized as criminals quick on the trigger busy bodies who kills with impunity?

    If you are someone aspiring for a police job, would you not be concern about this issue?  If people and elected officials will always be concern of backlash each time deadly encounters occurs between security forces and criminal elements in the country, why continue providing police officers and military soldiers guns and ammunition?  If they don’t want anyone getting harmed on either side, why not give police officers ‘patpats’ and beg the criminals to do the same?  Mag-ispadahan na lang para walang masaktan ng grabe di ba?

    • Jaime

      You are missing the point, it is how they died not a question of who they are.

      • Hey_Dudes

        What do you suggest then.  Police officers should have demanded these people in 2 SUV’s sporting high powered arms present identification papers?  How do you expect these to die?  Bullets cannot distinguish who are gambling lords, drug lords, priest, soldiers or police officers doing sideline as security for known gambling lords?

        Do you suggest, in the event a member of akyat bahay gang intrude inside my house, do I ask him first if he is there to steal things from me or there to clean up my house before I shoot him or her?

        Paano na iyan na ikaw ay patay na. Binaril ng kapitbahay na pulis na nagkagusto sa misis mo o gf mo. Maniniwala ba kami agad sa pulis na pumatay sa iyu, kung sasabihin nya na inunahan ka nya kasi ikaw daw ay isang drug pusher o kidnapper o isnatcher sa quiapo????

        Pag nirat-rat ka ni Marantan kasi gusto nya misis/GF mo, at sabi nya ikaw isang Gun for hire na member o isang NPA kaya daw binaril ka nya agad sa checkpoint, dapat ba naming paniwalaan agad si Marantan at kalimutan ang kaso???

      In a democracy, policemen are not excused from following Philippine Laws; and they are not above the Law. The PNP and its police officers and men should respect the Bill of Rights enshrined in the 1987 Constitution, and any police operation should not violate the Bill of Rights in our Constitution.  

      • Hey_Dudes

         In other words, what you are advocating is, let the criminals shoot at you first.  When they shoot, police officers must not shoot back.  They need to ask why they are shooting and if they will shoot again – they should shoot their guns  in the air to warn them right?   Right.

      • drifter

         Yes. Let the criminals shoot you first. Kung may kabobohan ka at kung Pulis patola ka, tigok ka agad. But there are ways to avoid beling killed. First proper traning. Have you seen police documentaries from first world countries? Even sa mga police stories / tv series, policemen from top forces around the world know when to engage without firing first. IN fact, they will put to the same rigorous investigations if they fail to follow propoer engagement procedures. Pinoy ka kase kaya nde ka nagiisip.

      Col Marantan is in league with the fugitive General Palparan see the last syllable in thier name jibe with on the ran.Once release from the confine of the hospital he will join General Palparan or hide like Senator Lacson.

    Collateral damage?????

    Marantan you are not a collateral damage, but you made the whole PNP your collateral damage. The image of PNP was again besmirched, though the PNP has always been tagged has having a corrupted and degraded image but there are still some good men in there that are struggling to be different.

    If it turns out that Marantan’s gunshot wounds are flesh wounds and no broken bones, they are self-inflicted. It takes a lot of luck and miracle to be hit in the arms and legs without sustaining bone damage.

    Collateral damage? How ironical is that considering that 13 persons can’t say their piece anymore because, well, they’re dead?

  • Marcela

    Calling the brave men of NPA in Quezon! This is your time to shine. Please pluck out Marantan from his hospital bed, since he doesn’t want to submit himself to an investigation, and hang him in Mt. Banahaw riddled with bullets all over his body.

  • Atawid

    There is a pattern here. St Luke’s is a safe haven for people running away from cases (prominent politicians, etal). You might wonder why Marantan is confined considering that the wounds are superficial and the incident happened in Quezon when there are good hospitals there which can treat superficial wounds.

    Please monitor his movement as he might do a “Mendoza” act in the in famous Luneta hostage drama kc ang iniisip niya ngayon ay iniwanan na sya.

  • Andrei Mendoza

    Supt. Marantan? ikaw collateral damage? aba! dapat eh barilin ka muna at patayin ng kapwa pulis mo para masabi ng pamilya mo na collateral damage ka!

    hangga’t buhay ka, you cannot claim the title of “collateral damage” duon lang yung sa mga inosenteng napatay ng kabaro mo. dapat ang title mo eh “Cholesterol  Damage” dahil mamatay ka sa atake sa puso sa sobrang timawa mo. 

    • VeryDisgusted2

      This is a proof Marantan has low IQ. This Lt. Coronel has a mentality lower than a private.

       Correct! And they do not have to buy guns and bullets as these are provided for by their organization – the PNP. Or, is it because the proposed Coplan was disapproved for funding kaya’t itinuloy at itinumba nila ang mga biktima para maagaw ang dalang malaking halaga ni Vic Siman. Suwapang talaga itong si Hansel. Panahon na para palitan yang pangalang iyan sa Karsel. That is where you ought to belong.

    Tangang criminal!!! You should be shot hanging upside down and buried with a backhoe…

  • Ike

    No Mr. Marantan, you made the whole PNP as a colateral damage. According to Marantan himself, since last yr, there are already solid evidence about Simans illegal activities. Then why not invite him to police precint for questioning. Or why not issue a warrant of arrest and go pick him up at his residence or in his Security Business office-you got solid evidence dont you. Siman is not in hiding for crying out loud, he is running his businness openly. Why do you need to set-up a checkpoint  just to get him? He is not a fugitive on the run. You know exactly where he lives. Even he’s movement in Camarines is monitored by the police. Why not stake out his office and arrest him when he got minimal security? And if you dont know how and when to do it when there are minimal risk to civilian casualties then you are not fit to have your badge and your gun.
    Yes, you had to do you job, Everybody expect you to do that, and no one is contesting the fact that you had to run after criminal elements, but you have to do it within the confines of the law, in proper procedures and in a more professional way reflecting high standards. You are a Lt Colonel so you should use your brain more than your trigger finger.

    • diamond_digger

       Marantan has brains? I sincerely doubt. Or if he does have one, it must be fully rusted and misfunctioning. In fact, I opine that as soon as he is fully recuperated of his superficial self-inflicted woundsit, would be good for him to move to another hospital in Mandaluyong where his vital organ for thinking right could be thoroughly examined.

    • speaksoftlylove

      Pati utak ni Marantan marami ng powder burns sa kakabaril kaya dispalinghado na yan. Kaya yong isang nagchampion dyan sa shooting competition na mahilig magpaputok ng baril, tiyak marami na ring powder burns sa loob ng utak. Patingin ka na, maawa ka sa madlang pipol.

    • cion

      You’re taking the word in wrong context . Marantan is accusing PAOCC of double face (traitor)  Marantan was used by  the COWARDS in PAOCC  who organized the “Operation Armado”  immediately after the incident, PAOCC published an article that they never approved the mission,  so PAOCC would not blamed for what had happen , by their refusal to acknowledge the validity – Marantan becomes the collateral damage and his career reputation and credibility has been  tarnished by PAOCC .What a dirty tactic just to save their skin of those who organized it in PAOCC.

      • diamond_digger

         Get your facts straight and right, Cion. PAOCC is not the proponent nor organizer of the Coplan Armado. It is Marantan and his unit who conceptualized, organized and proposed the operation to PAOCC for funding. Read all the necessary write-ups and even the statement s of Marantan so you will be enlightened. It is just like the people in the barangay who may need an artesian well. They go to the Barangay captain who will in turn, makes a project proposal to the mayor who may approved and fund it or turn it down if he sees any reason to do so. It is just as simple as that.

  • eirons1043

    Col. Marantan sayang coz you are a good state sponsored killing machine but you overkill this time and all visual and common sense evidence of the ambush are all over the place of the massacre. It will be exttremely difficult for you to escape this one.  Anyway in case you are laglag by your peers and superiors eh ikanta mo na din sila ng hindi ka nag-iisang malaglag. Multiple murder ang kaso mo at hindi bailable yan baka magaya ke dun sa mga bumaril daw kay Ninoy 24 years nakulong eh me backer pa.

        If you don’t like it, you have no business commenting here.

      • diamond_digger

        Cion, a blog is a personal journal or diary or notes of one’s opinion of certain things posted on the world-wide-web. It certainly is not judging. In fact, even if Chief Justice Sereno or any RTC judge, will not put and or publish their decision in a blog as it is not legal and binding. People joining in this blog are therefore not judging this case or any case for that matter, first and principally because they (including me and you) are not judges. There may be some sense to your idea, thus I suggest that you bring that up with the management of the Inquirer so that they will stop offering and or providing this facility to those who may want to comment on certain issues. Unfortunately, if and when you are able to convince the Inquirer, you may no longer be able to write in here, too.

    He has a twisted idea of himself. He never see himself murdered 40 people. This person is a robot having no conscience. He proved himself very dangerous to the society. If he is in the States he has been hanged long time ago or incalcerated for good to a mental asylum being dangerous to the society. But where in the world but only here in the Philippines, where this freak has not been imprisoned but continued to be a police officer and promoted!

    I supported Noynoy, but if this guy will not go to prison, I will campaign hard against this president as I have done to the corrupt Gloria.

  • parengtony

    Itong mga reporters ng INQ napaka masigasig sa mayat mayang pag lathala ng mga istorya mula sa pananaw ng mga pumatay subalit tahimik sa punto de bista ng mga namatayan.

    Even the “killing” of Morales, a Siman aide, in his residence in San Juan Batanggas through a raid by an out sized police contingent did not merit coverage from these so called journalists.

    The sound of silence from the INQ leadership/ombudsman is deafening.

    • zafirol

       You are right about that. It is obvious that the police murdered Siman’s aide right after they have him outside his house.

    The only thing that Marantan can do now is to be honest and tell everything, but maybe he was already told not to cooperate and what he is saying are all scripted na. Imagine ang yaman ng pulis na ito, he can afford St. Lukes while others are just in JRMH. Or are there wealthy people supporting him?

    • VeryDisgusted2

      Of course he can afford Saint Luke. Remember, it was not ambush only but highway robbery as well. Where do you think the reported big money brought by Siman went?

      Also the name St. Luke made me remember Gloria and the fat man. Is it far fetch to think the low-IQ Marantan is being made an attack dog by Mike to demonized Noynoy? Pandak and Fat Mike are not stupid. Remember how they prepared Corona to protect them from court cases.

    assuming without admitting na jueteng lord si mr siman, why not build up your case and wait for the judge to issue a warrant of arrest, mr siman is only a suspected jueteng lord , a jueteng lord is not a serious threat to the society, but a drug lord is a menace to the society, why is marantan after illegal gambling or jueteng, kc ba me pera na involve. 
       sa intel operation  ,,dapat ang info ay A1 , para maging confirmado , bakit ba mainit ang dugo ni marantan kay mr siman, in fairness to you mr marantan, , the filipino people are not against you , but we are not accepting the way your group had done , it looks like you  had summarily executing the atimonan 13.  are those 13 humans all deserve to die, how about the drivers of the vehicles , kung may isang tao na dapat kayong hulihin, at sakto me kasamang 12 na katao, dapat bang sila lahat ay idamay , d ba dapat ay , pinasuko na lang sila, 
         may kasama silang police supt na si mr consemino , tiyak ito ay bumaba at nakipag dialog sa inyo, kc alam nya na kapwa nya sila mga police, tiyak nag tanong ang isa sa kasamahan ni mr siman kung sino ang hanap nila at ano ang razon bakit sila ay hinarang. 
        madami dapat ipaliwanag, sa nangyari, ganyan na po ba ang sop ng mga police ,,
    na pag me checkpoint at d agad bumaba , ay ratratin na agad. 
       sa dami ng bala na tumama sa mga sasakyan nila, mukhang d na talaga sila plano ng grupo ni marantan na buhayin, cguro after nga few minutes , agaw buhay na lahat ng asa loob ng sasakyan, pero tumigil ba sila agad sa pag putok ng baril… nga kan da hati hati ang katawan ng mga pinaslang, sabog mga bungo, i do bilib na ang isang tao na naka patay na ng isang tao ay ,d na siya takot pang pumatay uli,,, nagiging trigger happy na, pag na pag padugo ka ng kapwa mo, tila balewala na sau ang gumawa ng ganyan sa sunod na laban,

  • nice_boy

    Trial by publicity!!!  I hate trial by publicity.  Hindi paman lumalabas ang results ng investagasyon, na hatulan na si Marantan.  Since the obvious intent of the PNP investigation is to pin all the blame on Marantan, it is only right for him to avail of his constitutional rights to remain silent.   More than two hundred slugs entered the SUVs.  Ilan kaya ang pinutok ni Marantan? We must all bear in mind that the PNP is fighting organized armed groups that kills people for a living.  Its better to over-kill than be killed.

    • Kilabot ng mga Balahibo

      “Its better to over-kill than be killed.”

      Tell that to the family of those innocents killed on Marantan’s misadventures, like Alfonso de Vera and her 7 year old daughter.

      Ilan bala ang pumasok sa sasakyan ni Alfonso de Vera which killed him and his daughter? about 70? pero legitimate target ba sila?

      Overkilling operations like these tend to raise a lot of collateral damages. Better stick to the rules of engagements. Shoot those who are armed and pose a threat. I don’t think the 7yo girl will ever be a threat to well armed police officers.

    • salomeahmad

      If you hate trial by publicity then you must hate more execution by mere allegations & association. Marantan acted as judge & executioner w/c he is not.

      yun totoong kriminal.. di pa napapatunayan na kriminal ung 13…Marantan,Melad at Glen Dumlao dun kayo mag checkpoint sa Basilan at maguindanao.. dina kailangan ng mga confidential..legit..etc. tingnan natin ang galing niyo!

    • boypalaban

       ubusin niyo lahat ng kriminal….sige simulan ninyo nang magpakamatay…

  • Olibo

    Highly “confidential” ang set up kaya 3 lang ang nakakaalam. No coordination with other agencies like PAOCC, NBI or the likes. Eto ang resulta collateral damage, suspected rub-out.Poor planning or pure corruption?

    • Kilabot ng mga Balahibo

       highly confidential?

      hmmmm. ibig sabihin nito walang documentation?

      kasi pwede kong patayin ang anyone in the street, then say that it was a legitimate encounter since i got a highly confidential intel report na ako lang ang nakakaalam, diba?

      who’s to say that the ‘highly confidential’ report is true? yung mga piling ‘friends’ mo sa PNP, CSupt Marantan?

      Given the same virtue of the presentation of your facts, CSupt Marantan, I could also argue the same reason being it a ‘rubout.’

      And you know what, CSupt Marantan, they will never have the ‘benefit of the doubt’ based on the statements you are telling, since they are already dead.

      • Kairosphil

        ..baka sa huli, si Marantan pa maging “State Witness” at ipagkanulo mga “AMO” niya…? At palagay ko naiisip na iyan ng mga AMO niya kaya… baka bilang na rin ang mga araw…

    na Assassinate na sila by simple association?

    bakit di nyo na lang dinala sa korte para nalaman ang katotohanan.

    • Kairosphil

      Nice kilabot! the “assassination” came from him.. nasa subconscious mind na iyan ni Manratrat… dahil iyan na ang buhay niya? Asahan mo na iyan Marantan… Ingat ka baka ang kasunod niyan hindi lang character… Ingat ka sa mga amo mo!

  • kalikasanipagtanggol

    Bakit sa st. lukes si marantan at hindi sa ospital ng gobyerno? bakit kailangan si juan de la cruz ang magbayad ng pagpapa ospital niya sa pinaka mahal na ospital ng bansa?

  • jerome

    If  your are to look at the picture of those killed showed in the news this morning some of the guns shown still have a masking tape on it meaning that they were never fired and some are even still sitting on the side. So come they are saying that they were fired upon. If you would look at another angle of it they could even use one of the victims gun to show that they were fired upon and eventually hitting Marantan…

      at magingat ka na rin sa mga amo mo (?) dahil madami ka ng nalalaman.. 


    Can the PDI research on the issue about who is paying for the hospital bill of marantan? Kasi the last time I know, mahal sobra ang St. Lukes at baka hindi kaya ibayad ni marantan yan or ng PNP. Sa lifetime savings ni maratan sa sweldo nya sa pnp, di din siguro kasya sa pagbayad sa hospital bill na yan.

    Kasi pag PNP ang magbabayad, baka sa PGH or government hospital siya e confine.Baka kailangan nya ng tulong galing sa pera ng j_____ng.

  • mr

    Sir MARANTAN, kunin mong lawyer si SIGFREID FORTUN para tumagal ang caso mo, kaya lang baka maubos ang pera mo galing sa jueteng. at least tama ang starting mo-st luke kaagad.

    “I am the collateral damage,” Supt. Hansel Marantan said when controversy began to rage after the killings…. weh di nga?

  • delpillar

    Yung IBIS bullet test machine (Integrated Ballistics Identification System or IBIS ) na ginagamit ng USA at meron din counterpart sa Pilipinas can detect whether the gun from the owner was the one hit the leg of Marantan and how far the gun was fired.

    At point blank range, the firing of gun to ones leg without hitting the main arteries and the bones was already perfected 100 years ago. LUMA NG ALIBI YAN NI MARANTAN NA TINAMAAN KUNO SYA NG BALA SA LEGS.

    nung panahon ni Marcos at few years before nya, at least may megaphone ang mga police cars at mga portable megaphone ang mga nag-re-raid at nag-che-checkpoint para ipaalam sa sasalkayin o aarestuhin ang kanilang basic rights, which is SHOW YOUR BOTH ARMS, RAISE UP and kneel down first. Kahit may baril ang ina-aresto kapag di naman nasa kamay ay pinapasunod ng basic rights. SHOW YOUR BOTH ARMS and slowly kneel down thru MEGAPHONES with flashing lights of the patrol cars.

  • LucasPacascas

    No Sir. Yung 12 na napatay ang collateral damage. Si Vic Siman lang talaga ang target mo Kernel. Alam mo naman from the very beginning na hindi gun-for-hire si Vic Siman kundi jueteng operator na papasok sa teritoryo ng sistah mo, si Tita Marantan Dinglasan, at alam mo din na hindi mamamatay-tao ang kanyang kasama on that fateful afternoon of January 6 and yet, dahil kundisyon na ang mind mo na i-eliminate si Vic Siman, you proceeded with your sinister plan to eliminate him at all cost. Nagdamay ka pa ng mga sundalong walang kaalam-alam sa plano mo.

    Yung Coplan Armado mo? Wala yan, imagination mo lang yan. Pinasakay mo lang yung mga Hepe mo. Nasaan sila ngayon dahil sa iyo? Sibak sa pwesto!

    Magpagaling ka Kernel, marami kang dapat sagutin. Katakot takot na asunto ang haharapin mo. Multiple murder!

    • speaksoftlylove

       Exactly. Magkano dineposit ni Jueteng Queen Tita Marantan Dinglasan sa St. Luke’s? Tatagal pa ba si Manratrat sa St. Luke’s o nakahanda na yong eroplano at escape route palabas ng bansa? Buti kung ganun lang, maswerte pa rin siya. Eh kung ipasalvage siya ng mga bossing niya dahil too hot to handle na siya, eh di tuluyang maging collateral damage nga ang higad, Sa kaso ng pananalita ni Marantan, nararamdaman na niya na i-eliminate siya kaya pati sa interview umiiyak na. Takot din palang mamatay ano?

  • roman_p

    Lokong pulis ito, ah. Mas importante nga talaga sa kanya yung kamay at tuhod nya kesa sa buhay nung inosente as collateral damage. Sa statement mo lang buking ka na. Mas kapanipaniwalang collateral damage kung sa ulo mo pinatama yung bala.


    Ito, mawalang galang na po kay maratan, kasi ayaw nya ipa-examin ang mga sugat nya na baka nangaling pa sa kasama nya.

    Ang kwento daw ay “Habang pinapapara ni marantan ang mga sasakyan, na sandwich cya sa gitna ng mga tauhan nya sa likod at yong pinapapara niyang sasakyan sa harap. At bilang sumugaw si marantan habang naka taas ang kamay nya na ka point sa direksyon ng mga sasakyan, FIRE! FIRE! FIRE!.” Ayon sa reliable source, “CEASE FIRE! CEASE FIRE!.” Duguan na ang balikat ni maratrat at may tama  sa paa. May buhay pa sa mga 13, pero tinapos na din nila para walang tistigo.

  • boybakal

    Collateral Damage…mukhang di purong ginto,sabi ng muslim puro ang suka di ginto.

    The predator Marantan became today the prey in this horrible game he orchestrated as back by exploding facts printed in dailies. As they contend crime does not pay also dance the tune you called. Why wail like a deserted hungry cat? You pay the price of your satanic invention Marantan since you can’t be on top all the while. Now that the curtain is drawn to showcase your deviltry then it’s payback time. Wailing here at the media won’t do you good but repentance and acceptance can help you in life after death if of course you hanker to meet the Maker but if Hell is where you like to go then do the satan’s way.

Mr. Marantan hands surely are tainted with blood who cares criminals versus criminals will benefit us ordinary folks so be it we need more of marantans…

E di, lagot ka ngayon…May pa sugat-sugat ka pa…Mas bobo ka pa kaysa Grade I kung kaklase noon…Maniwala sana ako na hindi yan self-inflicted kung sa ulo ka tinamaan at saka dinala ka sa ICU…Tsk..Tsk..Tsk…

  • pinoypower

    Inilaglag na si Marantan ng mga superiors niya at malamang sa mga pulis at sundalo na iimbistigahan ng NBI mayroon pang pipiyok. Mahirap ang kalagayan nila. Ang choices ay katotohanan, trabaho o buhay. Pag nagsabi ng totoo at may nadiin sa grupo ni Marantan malamang hindi magtagal ang buhay. Mahina naman ang witness protection program natin. Halimbawa yung sa Venson Evangelista carjacking murder case na ang testigo ay nasa witness protection program pero na-liquidate pa din. Malakas ang suspetsa ko na may connection sa pulis ang mga carnappers kaya itinumba ang witness kahit pa nga nakakulong na ang mga suspects. 
    Sa Atimonan shootout pwedeng may pulis at sundalo na pipiliin na magsabi ng totoo upang hindi matanggal sa trabaho sakali nga at may kalokohang nangyari pero ang mahirap niyan baka hindi magtagal ang buhay niya. Kapag nakisali naman sa cover-up at nabuking tanggal din sa trabaho. Ang hirap ng lagay nila at malamang hindi na makatulog.
    Hindi lang ang mga napatay ang collateral damage pati ang mga buhay at career ng mga police at military officers damaged na rin. Baka nga political careers ng ibang pulitiko ma-damage din dahil sa shootout na nagugat sa jueteng.

    marantan alam mo ba ang definition ng COLLATERAL DAMAGE??? saan ka ba nag-aral??? nakakahiya ka b_boy!!!!

    • boypalaban

      sa school ng mga bano bumaril…laging may collateral damage…professors: Lacson and Palparan….classmate: Dumlao

  • VeryDisgusted2

    Marantan, you better spill the beans now before you will be dead for good.

    Who is your real ring leader? Is it not Roxas, because until now you and Dumlao have not been suspended, arrested, or confined to barracks. The little guys have been suspended instead. 

  • Rovingmoron

    There are theories that Marantan and his men could have ill-motives against Vic Siman and his group. One is that Vic Siman no longer trust him after their friendship became sour. This led to the alleged filing of a complaint against Marantan before the Ombudsman because the police official kept harassing him for a long time. Another thing is to eliminate Siman after the latter was encroaching on his sister’s STL operations in Laguna, which is under the protection of Marantan. The check point cops could have arrested Vic Siman at the check point but they didn’t. That was swift justice against Siman’s illegal activities, without giving him the benefit of the doubt.

  • gilbs72

    You are trying to convince the entire nation that 43 PNP and Army Special Forces men FREELY surrounding 13 men (mostly civilians) trapped inside cramped vehicles in the middle of three checkpoints COULD NOT control the situation?  Even if it were true that shots were fired, they were clearly still at an advantage to control the situation, instead of what looks to the world like either panic fire or RUBOUT.  Which is the police priority – capture or elimination?  How sure where they that those vehicles didn’t contain children, hostages or non-participants behind those tinted windows?

    If these guys can convince the AFP/PNP leadership na legit ito, well, the public are not as stupid.  After all, God forbid, we civilians and our loved ones are the ones at risk of being placed under your so-called protection someday, and if this is how the police will handle it, then matakot tayong lahat kay Mamang Pulis. Are the PNP and AFP just huge magnets of trigger-happy people? One Army PVT reportedly let loose in excess of 30 rounds! Parang kaya nag-pu-pulis ang mga bata ay para lang sa “proteksyon” or “koneksyon” eh. Para kayong mapapanisan ng bala kung di nyo nagamit. May expiration ba yan?

  • Albert

    You reject being interviewed by the investigating team, you deny being physically examined by forensic medical examiners and you deny turning over the bullets which are legally considered evidence….and you cry character assassination??? ITS MORE FUN IN THE PHILIPPINES!!!!

  • Albert

    Stop making a mockery of the justice system you have sworn to uphold, subject yourself to the proper investigation, stop witholding evidence illegally and people won’t think you are a criminal. Stop the feeling of untouchable entitlement.

  • m1600

    ung mga ARMY ano kaya ang statement? dapat mag sabi sila kung ano talaga ang nangyari . Yung bagong chief of staff anak ni late  Gen Teofilo Bautista cdr ng 1st inf tabak div. biktima ng massacre sa PATIKUL SULU more than 100 officers and men ang na massacre ng MNLF kaya pag butihin nyo at bka ma dale kayo ng bagong CSAFP.

  • Philcruz

    The controversy over this incident hopefully puts jueteng lords and even drug lords stop their massacre of poor people’s lives and pockets. But I doubt it. They will continue to wreak havoc. They will continue to buy off politicians and law enforcers.. with bigger and bigger shares of their revenues.

    If there were innocent drivers (with no guns) who got killed in this incident, it is truly regrettable. But yes, in any major battle there are collateral damages. A word of advice to drivers.. stop working for jueteng or drug lords.. coz you may be the next collateral damage.

  • aldhins

    Sa dami ng kina-sasangkutan pag patay ni marantan nakakapag-tataka na promote pa:) kaya ok lang pumatay ng ilang tao  papalabasin  lumaban kulang pa ba yung nakunan mismo ng isang TV station na pinag-babaril nila yung mga  carnaper ng walang kalaban laban para  silang pumatay ng Hayop saan ang human rights ?  walang death sentence nga sa ating bansa pero pag minalas baka dina umaabot sa korte na sentensyahan na.

    • etomacq

      Sinabitan yan ni Noynoy ng medalya at napromote pa.

  • sherlock101

    my take: i think legal ung operation at basbas ni mar at ocho ocho, the intention is good but the result is bad. remember ihinto ang jueteng ang ist priority ni mar para bumalik ang popularity nya which is walang problema. ang problema e yung implementor ng goal nya. napaglaruan cla ni marantan, may personal grudge sya kay siman kaya ginamit nya ung coplan para maunahan nya tirahin c jueteng lord. di nga ba nasa siman’s hitlist si marantan? kaya nga cguro galit na galit at nasa defensive position c mar dahil nagamit cla ni marantan. hindi bagay kay mar na maging dilg chief masyado syang malambot at walang masyadong alam sa pasikot sikot at katarantaduhan ng PNP. mas bagay cguro ung tulad ni mayor lim na may alam sa kapulisyahan at politika.

    • Htee

      Hanep sa suggestion…si fred lim pa…kaya nga dirty harry ang bansag…wala rin sa ayos itong manok mo….executioner din yan…utak palbura.

     ganon pala kabulok ang mga pagkatao ng mga iyan, grabe

    • ApoNiLolo

      Don’t believe everything you read. Pwe Jade just have an ax to grind with the Pujedas. If you care to notice, all his comments are about lambasting these people and got nothing to do with the issue at hand.

      Ang masama, inuugnay nya ang issue sa pansariling motibo. Unethical at unfair to those who are concerned.

  • Komen To

    “Those of us on the ground, we get hurt, too,” – so they have to die? If he is a collateral damage, what do you call the innocents who died? In the modern world, even hardened criminals are caught alive, charged in court and imprisoned. But that is possible if police are good, justice system works, and prisons are correctional. This only shows the deeper problems of our country. It’s a shame the Filipino justice system remain in turmoil

  • Pio Gante

    don’t fret about it, sigurado makaka-bawi ka pa dahil kahit ni-laglag ka ng mga kasama mo meron pa namang senador na sasalo sa iyo  buti ka pa nga character mo lang ang na-“assasinate’ eh yung mga nasa sasakyan buhay nila ang nawala.

    • barako22

      kapag sinalo ni lacson si marantan.Si lacson ang magiging daan para bumagsak ang Aquino govt. maligaya na naman ang mga magnanakaw 


    Asan na po ba yong common law wife ng napatay na lispo na magpapresscon daw sya later at isiwalat nya ang pag ka corrupt ni Marantan kagaya ng pagtanggap diumano ng isang gift na gold lighter na Php500k lang naman daw at saka bakit napakatahimik ng mga obispo natin sa usaping ito? Ok lang po ba sa kanila ang ganitong klaseng patayan sa ating lipunan? Akala ko mga rabid pro life ang mga to. Ang iingay pagdating sa RH BILL eh ito ratratan ng buhay tamememe sila lahat

    • boypalaban

      in fairness sa kanila…baka naman sabihin ng iba “sawsaw na naman, lahat na lang ng issue….”

      • Tonypogi

         Talagang nakasawsaw. Nabasa kona isa siya sa mga nagpatutoo na si Siman ay Jueteng Lord ng Laguna.

      • boldyak

        kaya pinatay dahil kumpetensya…

  • virgoyap

    I’m just curious to know what might be the reaction of Archbishop Cruz, a vehemently anti- jueteng prelate about this bloody incident.

    • boypalaban

      Inquirer sources from the anti-illegal gambling movement Krusada ng
      Bayan Laban sa Jueteng led by retired Lingayen-Dagupan Archbishop Oscar
      Cruz on Wednesday said one of the three slain policemen, Supt. Alfredo
      Consemino, and Siman appeared in their records of people in southern
      Luzon involved in jueteng.(jan.11,2013)

  • johnlordphilip

    It’s TIME for Marantan to TELL-ALL!

  • Juan

     Nakakatawa itong si Marantan, bakit hindi niya hulihin ang kanyang ate na isang bigtime bookies sa Laguna…. trinabaho niya si Siman ng sa ganun ma-control nila ang jueteng sa buong Laguna at karatig na bayan…actually after ni Siman si Mayor Hidalgo ng Batangas naman ang isusunod nila.

  • sugbu

    Baka gustong mag Plea of Insanity itong si Maratrat,kaya kung ano na lang pinagsasabi….

  • gerp

    too many half-truths… why?… every one has their own personal interest to protect. if the daang matuwid na program ni Pangulo ay matuwid din ang mga kasama siguradong may direksyon ang kinabukasan ng Pinas…pero marami sa kanila ay may personal na interes…kaya ang daang matuwid ay nagiging daang matuwad.

  • juniorjuan

    ……..self incrimination! No wonder there’s ZERO wounded. Just explain the over-kill! His reaction should be more technical rather than being too emotional. This becomes a covert ops!

  • wakats

    Supt Hansel Marantan cried “foul” and likened himself as a collateral damage but many questions/doubts/lapses need clarification/justification:

    1. The PNP and army personnel manning the 2nd checkpoint were not in uniform, as required;
    2. The 2 SUVs of the 13 victims were peppered with more than 200 bullets;
    3. The SOCO team was not immediately given access to the scene, as reported;
    4. The questionable track records of marantan of not taking any prisoners during operations;
    5. The brutal slaying of the Atimonan 13 have patented shadows of the kuratong baleleng ghosts.

    The NBI would soon come out of its official reports on the incident and many believe there’ll be no whitewash, hopefully… 

  • Roxanne

    sana ay makonsensya ang mga taong gumawa nito.  nakakatulog ba kayo ng mahimbing?

  • Your_King

    Releasing funds for an operation, especially close to a million pesos is a form of approval. The PAOCC said the operation was not approved yet they release money. Someone is lying or trying to use clever words to trick the public of this mess. Aquino should have better understanding and control of his peoples because at this rate there is no organization in the Philippines. Anyone with any certain power does what they want believing that anyone can get away with anything as long as they can talk and ‘bola’ the public.

  • potatosalad

    tanong ko lang, anong makukuha ng isang Pilipino sa balita na to?

    • poltergeist_fuhrer

      na ang check point nakakamatay

      • potatosalad

        ahh. akala ko may kickback lahat ng kumakampi sa namatayan. hehe.

  • charles

    look at Marantan’s record, and you’ll see a lot of rubouts..isn’t he a very effective police officer?..hehehe…

  • etomacq

    May araw ka rin Manratrat… Si Satanas na bahala sayo.

    • Jaime

      Takot si satanas kay Marantan, kasi ka-kompetensya.

  • Mar

    calling all NPA sa quezon…eto na ang dapat nyong patayin si marantan. please lang po pakipatay na ang demonyong ito at ng di na maghasik ng lagim. sa dami ng napatay nyan dapat lang din mamatay 

    • Richard

       oo may hukay na para sa kanya.

    • Jaime

      I will even support NPA’s if they do.

  • Nonie Luces Fornier Sr.

    di malinis magtrabaho tuloy nilaglag ka

  • Dag Erickson

    So, how will he explain the missing P100-million spread on different bags ?   How will he explain that as a police officer,  you cannot order the occupants of a vehicle to get out in a legitimate checkpoint ? Even the statements are inconsistent. The operation was not approved but a fund was released.  What about that former employee of Siman who was killed by the Police in Batangas?


    • aeon888

      Pambayad po sa St Luke’s Hospital. lol Alam naman natin kung magkano lang ang sweldo ng isang police pero si Marantan ayun sa ST. Luke’s Hospital pa nagpahinga.

      Baka naman yung ibang jueteng lords ang nagbabayad sa hospital bills ni Marantan dyan especially yung kapatid nyang babae na jueteng lord din na si Tita daw pangalan. Kaya tuloy inubos yung kumpetisyun.

      Buti nalang hindi nagtitinda rin ng balut at penoy yung kapatid ni Marantan na si Tita, baka minasaker na ni Marantan din sa mga checkpoint lahat ng nagtitinda ng balut at penoy na kakumpetensiya nila at pagbibintangang nagtitinda ng drugs. lol

  • Tonypogi

    “Instead of talking to the members of the operating team, what did our
    commanding officers do? They listened to the media and then said it was a
    rubout. Did they even talk to us?” Marantan said in Filipino. ”

     E bakit ayaw mong humarap sa NBI investigation? Pinalalaki mo pa ba ang sugat mo?

  • opinyonlangpo

    He should be able to sell his story easily, but the papers says this is not the first time he massacred all the alleged criminals. Anyway it seems the decorated officer is well connected and have a good chance to make his killing legal and with blessing of the higher ups. A very organized crime group.

    • white scorpion

      ……i’m waiting for the news if he HAD killed land grabber or drug syndicate. these two were very VERY ruthless criminalS.

  • boybakal

    According to the report, Marantan was involved in 40 encounter killings,not included are those not reported or naglahong bula.
    Yet he remained unscathed or walang tama, despite the notoriety of alleged criminals he killed. 
    He is a Super human, bionic.

    Only one person can do what he did, kill those criminals ten, 20 at a time without being hit.
    FPJ…Fernando Poe Jr….but if FPJ is in make believe movies and he is wounded too by kontrabidas.
    SLN FPJ.

  • Johnny

    Pag nadismissed si Maratrat sa serbisyo hindi na din yan tatagal at madami ng maghahangad sa buhay nya sa dami nyang pinatay.. Nakakatakot na pla ngayon paano kung mapagkamalan ang sasakyan mo na katulad ng sa suspect raratratin ka na pla ksama ang pamilya mo tapos sasabihin nila ‘ AY MALI SORRY”
    Kahit pa sabihin naten weteng operator si Siman hindi pa din sya dapat patayin, ano ba ang masama sa pagiging operator ng weteng, madami nabibigyan ng trabaho me mga padulas pa sa pulis at mga mayor, lahat nagkakapera.
    Sa dami ng weteng operator sa bansa baket si Siman lang pinag initan, sa dami din ng gun for hire operator baket si Siman lang ang pinatay, Sa dami ng drug lord baket walang pinapatay?
    Me personal grudge etong si Maratrat ke Siman kaya sinugarado nyang patay. 
    Sa Batangas mdaming operator ng gun for hire alam ko nga kung sino sino eh simpleng tao lang ako, un isa nga birador 17yrs old pa lang 8 na nadadale sabi mismo ng operator sa amin..Nakakatakot na talaga ngaun bumangga at hindi mo alam kung sino bibira syo.
    Un mga taga San Juan Batangas nman na napatay malamang mga birador talaga sila kasi balita ko karamihan doon galing mga birador o gun for hire killer.  

    • white scorpion

      usually ide-declare (manghuhula) ng PULIS. AH!!! mga “gun for hire” / “drug lord” / “smuggling lord” / “jueteng lord” “awayan ng pera” (….ano pa?) ang mga yan. matagal na nilang sinusubaybayan yan.  

  • Lorebea Tamparong

    Hoy Marantan!!! Sa susunod ha wag mo sa checkpoint i rub-out or i massacre…Masyadong obvious…Ikaw ba pag nasa loob ka ng sasakyan tapos haharangin ka sa check-point ng sandamakmak na parak maglakas loob ka pa kaya na lalaban at magpaputok…??? Isipin mo nga yan… maliban na lang kung sira-ulo ka… Matanong ko lang ikaw ba ang bumaril sa sarili mo o isa sa mga tauhan mo??? Ang O.A. kasi…Sana nagpabaril ka sa ulo para hindi masyadong halata…yung tipong parang sasabog na ang utak mo para kapani-paniwala… Kaso nga lang parang hanggang dito na lang ang KILLING SPREE mo… Mukhang sa kulungan na ang bagsak mo… Magbaril ka na lang kaya sa sintido para mas lalo kang sumikat… Masisira araw ko sayo…BUWISIT!!!!

    • white scorpion

      kung sa sariling ulo siya magbabaril, hindi siya makakatanggap ng panibagong recognition. kung sa paa, mabubuhay pa siya. pwede pa siya tumanggap ng isa pang recognition. problema, masama ang PLAYWRITE ngayon at nabuking.

    • 4KABUTIHANNGpinoy

      Sobra galit neto ah.. fishy :)

  • ryan andres

    Ano kaya ang palusot nitong mga magigiting nating pulpulis kapag tinanong sila kung bakit pinalusot nung unang checkpoint?

  • Lorebea Tamparong

    Tips para hindi ma rubout sa check-point.

    1. Wag basta magtiwala sa nga nakatalaga sa check-point…Makiramdam ng mabuti.
    2. Mag txt agad o tumawag sa mga kamag-anak at ipa-alam nyo na malapit na kayo sa check-point…Ipaalam ang exact location ng check-point….
    3. Kung may mga baril kayo at kunti lang ang nasa check-point…Putukan nyo agad !!! ay mali (ayan tuloy nahawa ako kay Marantan)…
    4. Pag marami naman ang nakaharang…Wag nang tumuloy…Tiyak rubout ang aabutin nyo… Bumalik na lang kayo…
    5. Wag sumakay ng Van… Mag bus na lang kayo… Wala pa namang bus ang niratrat dito sa Pinas…
    6. Wag magdala ng baril para mas safe…
    7. Pagkailangan talaga mag dala ng baril…magsama na rin kayo ng granada at pag nasa tapat na kayo ng check-point tanggalin nyo ang pin…kailangan lahat kayo may granada para pag ni-rubout kayo pati sila rubout din…
    8. Ang pinaka importante sa lahat…Pag nakita nyong si Marantan ang nasa check-point…malayo pa lang putukan nyo agad…unahan nyo na kung ayaw nyong matulad sa Atimonan rubout case…



      9. Wag makipag JOYRIDE sa mga criminal. mapapahamak kayo at madadamay din kayo sa patayan. 

    • ryan andres

      Boss, about sa item number 5 mo…

      5. Wag sumakay ng Van… Mag bus na lang kayo… Wala pa namang bus ang niratrat dito sa Pinas…

      …how about yung bus sa Luneta hostage f*ckup? Basta pulpulis ang humawak ng kaso palpak talaga…delikado na rin pala sumakay ng bus kung ganon…

      pero tama ka dun sa ibang items. Dagdag mo na rin na kapag si Marantado yung nasa checkpoint eh paputukan muna yung mga bodyguard nya para siguradong walang ibang makakabaril sa kamay at paa nya hehehe

    • 4KABUTIHANNGpinoy

      Galing ng tips mo: Panawagan sa mga mga carnaper, holdaper, kidnapper, jueteng lords, drug lords,  land lords, kotong lords etc, huwag po kayong magsamasa sa suv kundi 6 feet below kayo lahat sabay sabay!  ko po huwag po sa bus ang suggestion niyo kc marami po innocent people madamay. Marami pong salamat sir.

    The Top Ten Typical Pulpulis Philosophy:

     1. Shoot first, ask questions later
     2. Shoot first, ask no questions
     3. Shoot first, then shoot self and claim self-defense
     4. Shoot first, then call media and make oneself the hero
     5. Shoot first, bahala na si batman pagkatapos
     6. Shoot first, because the police are paid to shoot, not to think
     7. Shoot first, then say, “the SUV shot me first!” (ay, yung nasa loob pala nung SUV)
     8. Shoot first, then cry “I am the collateral damage” upon investigation
     9. Shoot first, then scratch head afterwards
    10. Shoot first, period.

  • ushldcallme

    i bet you nobody would ever take the responsibility of this incident, nobody at all.  speculations, yes; evidences and witnesses are already tainted because of vested self-interests, plus, the delaying tactics, oh yes.  this will remain unsolved probably even after 2016.  good luck !

  • white scorpion

    even if the 13 peoples were criminal elements. that doesn’t makes you (marantan) the good guy. you are very lucky sa st.lukes ka pa naka-check in. masama loob mo dahil pinabayaan ka (kuno) ng boss mo. masuwerte ka buhay ka pa. HUWAG KA NA MAG-REKLAMO. dahil yun mga proven innocent peopleS na nadamay sa operation mo HINDI makareklamo.   

  • Jen

      why don’t you give medals to the whole PNP/AFP, medals is not worth anything to you.

    Kung totoo ang sinasabi mong yung mga nasa SUV ang bumaril sa’yo, dedo ka na ngayon Marantan.

      Tanga Lang maniniwala sa kanya. Kahit malapitan, mas madali tamaan ang katawan kesa buto ng tuhod at braso.

  • justomontevedio

    Ang mga reasoning nitong gropo ni Marantan ay kahawig ng reasoning ng mga abogado ni Corona, parang “Fairy Tale”. Sino kaya ang maniniwala sa kanilang version? Kung ang unang nagpaputok ay ang nasa sasakyan seguradong may patay sa mga nasa checkpoint- ung nagpapara sa sasakyan ay nakalantad baket walang tama? Baka naman nagpaputok yong mga nasa sasakyan pataas sa langit, parang selebrasyon ng NEW YEAR. Masyadong komik na ito.

  • Jaime

    can somebody just shoot him dead and say he tries to resist arrest!

    Summary execution of characters engaged in criminal activities – many people will close their eyes, ears and mouths on that.

  • Vilma Amon


  • F**kinMO

    “With this kind of investigation, I am not happy [about it],” Marantan told the Philippine Daily Inquirer… Oh they’re supposedly making you happy, because you are police superintendent? There is saying that, if you done nothing wrong you have nothing to worry about.

    • Komen To

      Because during the time of Pandak he can do away with murder and even got promoted. Namihasa

  • gerry2000

    Whatever your reasons are, still you are not supposed to kill the suspected criminals especially since they didn’t put up a fight. Kahit saang angulo tingnan maling-mali ang ginawa mo. You should be ashamed of yourself for the rest of your life. It would just be fair for the victim’s family to see you die in electric chair or lethal injection.

  • sl1

    This police officer must be removed from service for creating untrue story of what happened that they wanted the public to believe that it was a shootout. Why would this police officer refused to submit himself for physical examination for the wounds he got? It is because it was self inflected
    and afraid that it will be discovered that this was not a bullet wounds. Why would the higher police authorities not instruct him to submit himself for physical examination voluntarily so that doubts can be cleared once in for all. Is it because many more officers are involved in the cover-up?

    And there are dozens of operatives involved in the shootout. And we assume all of them to include Col Marantan  are honest people. Pag inisa-isa, hiwalay na imbestigahin ang lahat, imposible hindi lalabas ang totoong klarong picture.

    Ngayon pa lang medyo may masangsang na amoy dito. Col Maratnan needs cover-up higher than people investigating his case to clear him from the foul air he created.

     Hindi daw rub out….kahit saang anggulo tignan, rub out.   Huwag na gamitin ang PNP bilang panangga, umamin na kayo.   Hindi ba’t may leak na balita na binaril ng malapitan ang isa habang nakahiga?  Hindi po tanga ang mga tao.  Matagal na nyong ginagawa yan, kaya dapat na kayong kalusin.  Last time i checked the Police is not a judge, jury, and executioner.
