PNP Director General Alan Purisima. Inquirer/RAFFY LERMA

The new Chief of the Philippine National Police (PNP) is not losing sleep over the controversies plaguing the 148,000-strong force.

In fact, Director General Alan Purisima on Monday said he actually considered the criticism generated by the Atimonan, Quezon, shooting incident “a blessing” as it prompted a review of various police protocols and policies.

“Much as the Atimonan incident was indeed tragic… life moves on and the PNP must move on with it,” said Purisima during the weekly news forum at Camp Crame.

He said the PNP would just wait for the conclusion of the probe being conducted by the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) into the incident.

“The only clear thing right now from the unfortunate incident is that there are a few questionable elements in the PNP and we are getting rid of these bad elements. We will not hesitate to get rid of those who do not deserve to wear the badge of honor of a police officer,” Purisima said.

To launch improvements in the PNP, Purisima said he had ordered the dismantling of the counter-intelligence division of the Intelligence Group (IG), the PNP’s main intelligence unit.

Purisima expressed disappointment over the failure of the agents of the IG’s counter-intelligence division to detect the police operation that Supt. Hansel Marantan had allegedly hatched against Victor Siman, the alleged operator of the illegal numbers game “jueteng,” who was among the 13 men killed in Atimonan.

    CORRECTION  SIR !  It is NOT  a blessing because blessing only comes  from God ! More appropriate term is ” It is an eye opener to the PNP to reform or else worst things will come !

  • pasaway008ako

    Baka naman palabra lang iyan Director General Purisima, pero walang honor. Sa ibang salita, hanggang dakdak ka na lang.

    There are about 148,000 members of the PNP – that’s how many cops there are out there that are extorting money from all kinds of criminals.

  • Rovingmoron

    Paano kikibo ang IG, eh baka me patong din kay Marantan. Kaya silent na lang sila. And it’s good you’re going to dismantle the counter-intelligence unit of the PNP. Good riddance!

    Killing is a ‘blessing!!

  • asarin

    baka maubos ang kapulisan pag tinanggal mo ang mga scalawags.

  • VeryDisgusted2

    Scarred people don’t buy words. They will be relieved from fear and hatred to police once they see results.

    People witness police corruption everyday. For example, they wandered if the Police chief in Digos city can afford life style having 3 personal vehicles – latest models of Tucson, Strada, and Adventure and newly renovated house worth millions.

  • MarcyPulilan

    Mawawala ang krimen pag tinanggal ang mga scalawags at karamihan ng pulis (at mga sundalo na rin). Dito lang sa Pinas na hindi pa nagaganap ang crime eh naka puwesto na sa crime scene ang mga pulis. sila kasi iyong mga criminal he he he!

  • MarcyPulilan

    Mahirap kasi sa atin eh mga patay gutom at hampas lupa ang mga gustong mag pulis at sundalo, kaya iyon pag nabigyan na ng baril, naghahari-harian na, pag naging opisyal na eh ginagawang negosyo iyong kanilang ranggo. Dapat hindi puwedeng mag pulis at sundalo kung mga walang pinag-aralan. Kasabihan ng, bigyan mo ng baril ang Tsonggo, Tsonggo pa rin. Tingnan ninyo iyong litrato ni Purisima, diba mukha siyang patay gutom , hampas lupa at mukhang tsonggo, nilagyan lang ng bituin ang kanyang balikat.

      • batangsulpok

        10 yrs. akong nagserbisyo pagka-graduate ng civil engineering sa Mapua, assign sa PA Engineering Brigade pero umalis dahil puro construction ang project at ang amo ay PMAer na di naman engineer, pagdating ng promotion, laging una sila, sa schooling, kahit talo mo sila sa engineering subjects, sila pa rin ang mag-number 1, kung baga, kahit anong husay mo, sila pa rin ang nasa puwesto kaya walang pagbabago ang AFP kundi yumayaman ang mga Heneral.  Isa pa, sobra ang palakasan sa AFP at masyado ang regionalism na kung Ilokano ang amo, halos mga tauhan ay Ilokano rin, Tagalog, Bicolano, Bisaya, Kapampangan, Pangasinense at iba pang nagsasalita ng kanilang dialect, ganon din ang kalakaran.

      • Mamang Pulis

        tama lahat sinabi mo

    • Mamang Pulis

      ‘dre—hindi lahat hampas lupa ang PNP at AFP…meron pa rin naman natitira ng kakaunti.

      nagkataon lang na ang kawangis ni jeneral jefe ay nahintulad sa sinabi mo—

      mahina lang siguro ang bokabularyo ni jeneral jefe sa mga istilo ng soundbite tulad ng ginagawa ng press corps sa palasyo…

      masyado lang nadidikit kay boy bawang roxas at nahahawa sa mga palpak na hirit.

  • batangsulpok

    Sa tagal na sa serbisyo ni Purisima ay ngayon lang niya nalaman na may mga bad elements sa PNP?  Mukhang tulog yata sa pansitan si Purisima o nagbubulag-bulagan dahil isa rin siya sa protector ng mga opisyal na gumagawa ng katarantaduhan.

    • Mamang Pulis

      kasama ata sya doon kaya ayaw punahin—

  • Maximumaries

    Hahahaha!!Nagpapatawa ka Gen. Purisima sa kabobohan mo!!How can your IG’s detect the plan of Supt. Marantan against Vic Siman when most or maybe all of your IG’s ay mga bulok din at kasama sa hatian sa mga illigal activities sa PNP force???99.9% sa PNP force ay mga bulok!!!!

    • Mamang Pulis

      sakto ang sinabi mo—

      pera pera lang yan-

      nag ka onsehan kaya tinuluyan.

  • Komen To

    First he announced that Connecticut killing will never happen here, and the Cavite killing happened. Now he is saying Atimonan killing is a blessing? O baka natanggap mo na rin ang pamasko mo galing sa magagaling mong intelligence agents? Better clean up the PNP silently first before announcing anything

  • parengtony

    Hindi na nakatutuwa ang pronoucements mo Gen. Purisima. The problems facing the PNP are way beyond police protocols and policies. The rotten apples within the PNP are much much more than the “few questionable elements” that you say you will weed out. With this kind of attitude that you show to your men I doubt many of them will go the extra mile to help reform your institution.

    The people will understand if you don’t feel up to it but let someone else handle the job. And please get the hell out of the way.

  • Garo Ungaro

    Anything that happens on the rank in file depends on who is on the top…never will any 
    organization setting an example…on RESPECT,DISCIPLINE,INTEGRITY…might be 
    a good start…your mission is not criminals, since thats the main goal..the TRUST/CONFIDENCE from the citizens is the main goal…getting it back. FEAR

    erosion of trust/confidence by the citizen be stop..
    your mission is “TO SERVE and PROTECT.”

  • tata_boy

    I disagree with Gen Purisima, the way I see it, this is not a blessing. Things happen for a reason. Marami sa kapulisan ang mga tulisan, unang-una may kasabihan na dalawa ang asawa ng mga pulis. Ito ang patunay na di sila tunay sa kanilang pangako, kung ang asawa nila ay kanilang winawalanghiya, tayo pa kaya? Malaking negosyo ang jueteng at kaya lang ito nabubuhay ay dahil sa protection ng kapulisan. Kaya mo bang itigil ang jueteng? I doubt it very much Gen. Purisima. Iyong mga kasangkot sa agawan ng paputok sa QC, ano na ang nangyari dito? Iyong nawawalang pulang maleta at clutch bag sa Atimonan ambush, nasaan na? Marami pa akong gustong itanong sa iyo ngunit graduate ka ng PMA, kaya mo bang usigin ang mga kapuwa mo graduate sa PMA?

  • Summerspice

    What an irresponsible statement!
    Get rid of Purisima too!

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_BFVHG62YMHHA7AIMGDCXTNKJJI The Truth

    Yes, but hopefully, reforms and policies should be instituted in exposing the scalawags in the rank without these bloodshed’s.
     

  • divictes

    If this is a blessing, I’d rather be cursed.

    • t2jr

      there are lessons to be learned in the said incident. it’s a good thing that PNP realize the need to review these protocols and how its personnel on the ground are committed to comply or how they are prepared to do their jobs. this is part of disciplining and professionalizing the police ranks. there is just one area that need to clarify here,. the engagement of military personnel on strictly police matters.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_UWISP2YXGDQ7K2SIX2GI37B2EI Darwin

    Baluktot talaga ang utak nitong si Purisima. The thing is: IT SHOULD HAVE NEVER HAPPENED IN THE FIRST PLACE. Nangangamoy kasabwat tong si Purisima. Big chance alam nya ang mga kalakaran na to, kung hindi man mismong kasabwat.

  • koaks2

    anong blessing ang pinagsasabi mo general? at anong pagbabago ang gagawin mo? hindi ikaw o sino man ang kaya pigilin ang jueteng. lahat ng bagong upong chief pnp yan ang sinasabi, na mawawala na ang jueteng under his watch. nangyari ba? tulad din ng lahat na bagong upong chief of staff, na matatapos na ang insurgency in a number of years. well, nandyan pa rin ang npa. a few bad elements o only a few good men are left in our armed services.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_UWISP2YXGDQ7K2SIX2GI37B2EI Darwin

    Dami nang palya ni Purisima since his promotion. Karamihan irresponsible statements kagaya na lang ng too fast too furious statement nya na hindi rubout ang Atimonan incident. Tapos yung gun shooting sa Newtown, di daw mangyayari sa atin yun, hayun, nangyari yung sa Cavite. His irresponsible mouth could just be the tip of the iceberg. Paging the President, you might want to rethink your promotion of this fat guy.

    • Summerspice

       You are right!Advice for Purisima:Less talk,less mistake.Better yet he shouldn’t talk.Let the PNP spokesman do the talking!Wala bang magaling na PNP officer kaya siya na lang ang na-appoint?

      • okabato

         Si Gen. Espina ng NCR magaling sumagot at magtrabaho. Siya ang mabangong opisyal ng PNP ngayon.

      • Summerspice

        Ok sana si Espina kaso hindi  siya pinili ng Presidente nyo.I don’t know if he will have the chance to become Chief.PNP needs somebody like Espina who is very strict.I’m wondering if your president has realize that he made a mistake in appointing Purisima.What an embarrasment!

    • Garo Ungaro

      probably, the president is shaking his head…What the ???? this guy saying…

    Blessing lang ang mga kamatayan if after the event meaningful reforms are done. PNP’s image is very bad. No jueteng will proliferate in a certain province without the knowledge of the Provincial Director. And from there it goes straight to Regional Director and then to the Director General. Kaya mo bang aminin yan? Kung hindi don’t speak of blessing dahil sumpa ang lumalabas sa bibig mo.

    THE ATIMONAN MASSACRE A BLESSING PURISIMA. OMG where is your heart and mind. Are you insane to blurt that animadversion when in fact 13 families are grieving over the death of their loved ones. Moreover, the pain is so intense that like an epidemic, it afflicted the feelings and sentiments of the Filipino people informed of the facts amid the killing of these 13 innocent victims.

    Purisima, you’re a cold blooded and heartless person. devoid of even a trace of sympathy to the hapless victims and their grieving families, including the sympathetic Filipinos abreast of the situation.

    Using the word blessing to a heinous crime though you have a strong point to pursue for the improvement of your policemen imputes that you had been gratified by the happening of that event which had educed your sadistic tendency. or as inferred you’re the person who laughs and rejoices at the misfortune of others.

    With your viewed character, Purisima, the PNP isn’t your suited place of work nor any job available. A cold and heartless person must stay at an asylum where he can be treated.

    People in high places can be more circumspect in their public statements. One can still make a point without offending sensibilities or coming across as being cavalier about serious matters.. It’s known these days as being ‘politically correct’. In a sense, it was known then, and still is, as ‘empathy’. Can death, especially multiple deaths, arising from a highly suspicious incident, really be considered a “blessing in disguise”?

    You can already see how incompetent the PNP leadership is. They first need to see lotsa people dying in a series of police-conducted ambushes, before they can see the need for a review of checkpoint protocols.

  • wakats

    PNP Chief Alan Purisima has reasons to be happy after the Atimonan debacle as it will give him the rare chance to cleanse the PNP of all “bad elements” and restore its tainted image as “bantay-salakay,” among many.

    Alan has the backing of the President and probably the entire citizenry and if he succeeded on this – he could launch a political career.

    Good luck Alan and may the “Force” be with you…

    Do it rightaway sir Gen. Purisima, this Badge of Honor is not for POLICE SCALAWAGS, they are not a policemen that serves and protect but police criminals in uniform. they should not be given a change to perform again n their duties but immediately fired them. those who have records should be reviewed and monitored, they are dangerous on the street. much more dangerous than criminals.

    “The Atimonan, Quezon, shooting incident a blessing-Purisima”. Ang ibig sabihin ng PNP Chief a ‘blessings’ for top echelon dahil lahat ng victims ay walang nabuhay hindi na makapagsasalita pa sa mga activities ng PNP & IG/CI na marami pa madadamay sa hanay nila up the chain of command. Mayroon pa sila chance this time to reform their old rotten ways and keep secret a much bigger scheme. What was exposed is only a ‘tip of the iceberg’…blessings di ba ano tawag doon???

    bakit ba kasi kailangan i keep yung mga gaya ni Marantan. Dapat pag may hint of disregard for life, tanggalin na sa pnp.

    tulad ng jags, pag dumadami ang infractions ng isang sundalo, alisin na kaagad sa serbisyo, dami pa naman estudyante ang pma, dba.

    ahahaha.

  • pinoypower

    The PNP chief ordered the dismantling of the counter intelligence group because it failed to detect the intelligence actvities of Marantan. It seems to be the wrong solution. Di wala nang magbabantay sa mga abusadong intelligence officers. Baka dapat ay palitan yung counte-intelligence officer sa halip na i-dismantle yung position.
    Dapat din sigurong baguhin ang operational procedures ng PNP. Bakit laging patay ang suspects sa mga shootouts? Pwede namang barilin sa paa at kung nakahandusay na ay hindi na dapat pang barilin. Madalas kasi mga alaga din ng mga pulis ang criminal elements at pinakikinabangan pero pag mainit na ay itinutumba para hindi na makakanta.
    Marami pang reporma at paglilinis ang kailangan sa PNP at sana’y magawa ito ni Purisima.

    How many police officers out of the 148,000 will be left if all the bad elements were removed?

    We may need a big poultry of geese which will lay golden eggs if the whole police force is to be turned upside down and all the bad eggs are removed.

    • Guest

      Only around 48,000 will be left. Maybe less.

  • buttones

    I do wish a file photo could be found where Purisima is not always grinning, I find him disturbing. On his comment regarding the shooting deaths as some sort of ‘blessing’ that points out the appalling state his organization is in, ‘blessing’ is hardly the word to use is it, a ‘tragic blessing?’ Now there’s an oxymoronic statement if there ever was one, I think the guy needs a spokesperson…..or a scriptwriter at least…Jeeze!

  • ninestrokes

    Manong Purisima, hindi”blessing” kung may mamamatay. It is good you were able to get something good out of this whole tragedy but to call a tragedy a blessing is incredibly inhumane. IT is PNP’s job to keep the public safe. I’m sure it shouldn’t need a public shooting to remind you of that.

  • dodong1

  • Your_King

    What a  dumb statement? Who told you to say that, Aquino? Trying to put a nice spin on a terrible and crooked incident. This was more than unfortunate. It was an example of the neglect Aquino has done on protocols and procedures. Does it take something tragic like the killing of 13 people for review? Or does it take a devastating flood to come up with a flood control system? Does it take a grenade going off inside the BuCor for attention. Attention should have been paid prior to these incidents so maybe it would not have gotten to those points. This is more than slight oversight that needed to happen for call to review protocols, this was plain neglect.

Bakit kailangan pang may magbuwis ng buhay para ma-review ang mga kapalpakan niyo sa PNP? Halos taon taon ng nagpapalit ng PNP Chief at ang bagong talaga na Hepe ay nagsasabing baguhin ko ang ganito, alisin ko ang ganito etc etc. Tulad nitong si Purisima…sabi niya nung innagural speech niya..mga scalawags at di matinong pulis umalis na kayo sa hanay ng kapulisan. Anyare???? Bakit meron namasaker????

  • bahaykubo1015

    Hindi ko alam kung si Purisima ay simply hindi marunong mag-ingles o talagang like many policemen has some serious psychological imbalance in the head, but with 13 people dead blessing ba yon??
    Purisima please think before you speak please!!!
    Or nahawa ka na ba sa karamihan ng ka-uniforme mo?? Shot suspects and many bystanders first before asking questions?
    Too many trigger-happy policemen using their guns before their clouded minds could react….

    “Blessing-in-disguise,” instead of BLESSING, ang ibig sabihin either ng writer o ni purisima dito. Di natin alam kung sino ang pinanggalingan ng kabobohan! But no matter from whom it originated, the death of 13 people could never, never be considered a blessing-in-disguise as a reason for a PNP reconstruction or whatever purisima, The Tooth, plans to do. 
    Not only this statement is plainly stupid; it is also a horrendous insult to injury to the victims and their survivors!

  • Paliwaweng

    Santa maria purisima, stand up your ground general, call a spade if it is spade.
     
    Giving dangling proposition is similar to a fence-sitter, going with whoever wins in any
     
    confrontation/battle.
     
    Before the start of the game, stay put and state your position general.
     
    Expressing disappointment is good, but sacking them is better and this would cleanse your
     
    image, and will add credence to the PNP.

  • wawa2172

    Massacre of 13 men a blessing for Purisima? Oh well, Santisima napuno ka nang disgrasya. Disgrasya as in disgrace, and is this the best that Noy have choosen from PNP as chief . As new chief of staff, Purisima opening salvo was doing things in a wrong foot. The PNP is somehow a disaster at Atimonan ambush and maraming kasawsaw ang mga police. The PAOCC is interfering with police matter since it is under the palace appointed Ochoa as head. Is he over and above the Chief PNP? If not dapat buwagin na lang dahil pang gulo lang sila sa pulis. Kung mahinang klase si Purisima, better for him to retire early. Is Purisima a PMA’er if so santsima talaga.

    Now that’s how you turn things around! That’s how you trick people in thinking that something hideously negative is actually positive and enlightening!

    Imagine the murder of 13 men with the involvement of law enforcers, also possibly government officials and big time crooks. The abundant existence of jueteng, the millions of dirty money, the incapability of investigators to solve the crime, etc. etc. And still the PNP chief considers it as a blessing? That’s completely pathetic!

    The point is, why does something awful always has to happen first before our authorities and government officials move? That’s the whole idea of them being there is to prevent awful things such as this incident from happening. Otherwise, what else do we need them for? Or maybe we just don’t have the right people in their designated positions?

Salain din ang mga pulis na may dala-dalawang asawa o higit pa, sapagkat kahit sa banal na kasulatan ang pangangalunya ang ugat sa paggawa ng iba pang kasalanan una na ang kasinungalingan… Syempre kapag may kabit si Mamang pulis na may batutang matulis, para may pangtustos ay normal yung maghanap ng kanyang raket… Dyan na sumasama ang image ng kapulisan…
