Uyami, a member of PMA class ’82, was the former head of Pasig City police and PNP’s Anti-Illegal Drugs Special Operations Task Force.

    Former head of Pasig Police? Eh ang daming nababalitang drug lords dun?
    Nadale na ba ni Gen Uyami?

     Samuel Pagdilao…the great general who did not attain the highest position.
    Left behind by politics.
    Job well done.

    Kawawang Roxas. Kumagat bilang DILG. Daming hindi niya na gawa, katulad ng Jueteng, illegal logging ni Angara na pinalalabas niyang ECO-zone daw, kaya lang illegal logging pala. Sino ang maniniwala ke Angara na gusto angkinin ang 12,900 hectares of virgin forest. Dito ninyo makikita na kahit natalino, dating Dean ng UP, pagka pumasok sa politika, wala na. Nakalimutan na niya ng moral ascendancy. Sayang si Roxas. Accepting the position as DILG czar was a big mistake.

    CIDG (Cash Investigation and Dukot Group) will easy money like NBI (National Bigayan Investigation)
