Heard on Radyo Inquirer 990AM: Precinct chief on arrest of Manila vice mayor



“…I’ve been serving [in the] Blumentritt [police community precinct] for the longest time. Politics has nothing to do with it. What we did in Tambunting was the right thing. Now they are accusing us of using excessive force. The truth is the former President [Joseph Estrada] bullied me during the inquest proceedings, he bumped [me hard] several times….”—Chief Insp. Ed Morata, Blumentritt PCP commander who was teary-eyed as he answered reporters’ questions about the arrest of Manila Vice Mayor Francisco Domagoso and four city councilors for illegal gambling.

    As police officers, or any police official, for that matter, they should  do what they are supposed to do without any fear of political reprisals. This is only the beginning when policemen must exercise their duties according to what is prescribed in the law.

    • $20174498

       Police officials should serve the Public without fear or favor. In the case of MPD Police, they’re not only partial but partisan as well,

    • ApoLapullapu

      The problem with this policeman is he arrested people even if no crime was committed.  Hence, it is hard to believe that he was not ordered by a politician to break what appeared to be an outpouring of admirers around opposition politicians who were merely having fun with them.

  • Labandera1

    Ayan si plunderer Estas ay isang bully. Papano nalang kung maging mayor siya sa Maynila. Mga pulis huwag kayong matakot  palubog na itong si Estas manindigan kayo. Ang importante nasa panig ninyo ang tuwid na daan ni President Noynoy Aquino at ang masang Pilipino. Hindi pa nga nakaupo sa pwesto abusado na………Iwanan ang UNA at e-rampa ang Liberal Party sa tuwid na daan…..

    • $20174498

       Labanderang Mahadera,  Bakit ba galit na galit ka kay Erap eh baka dimo alam, isa sa mga kamaganak mo ay sinalvage ni Lim nong pulis pa siya? Kung gusto mong ikampanya ang yong manok eh sana maging disente at sibilisado ka. Dada dito dada doon ang ginagawa mo, sa akala mo ba makakatulong ito?

      • Labandera1

        Hay nakuh, nadagdagan na naman na isa pang Boyong na Judas. Your boss Erap along with UNA candidates are going down the gutter then to the drain. Pasenya ka na Boyong weder weder lang yan. Dati ang boss mong si Erap ay untouchable ngunit ngayon disposable na lang..as in rubbish.. Mga matino kong kababayan ng Maynila ngayong darating na election itakwil si Estas Erap at talian ang kanyang asong Boyong at e-rampa si Mayor Lim…..

      • gmaisthebestpresident

        hindi nga daw niya idolo si erap. basahin mo yung ibang post niya. nakakapagtaka nga lang at todo pagtatanggol siya kay erap. 

      • $20174498

         GAMAIS ANG UTAK. MAY NABASA KA BA SA REPLY KO NA IPINAGTATANGGOL KO SI ERAP. WALA AKONG GUSTO SA DALAWANG HUKLUBAN NA YAN. PAREHAS YAN NA AMOY LUPA NA. WE NEED NEW BREED OF POLITICIAN FOR MANILA. MAGING CONSTRCTIVE CRITICISM SANA TAYO AT HINDI ONE SIDED LANG.

    • ApoLapullapu

      Kung totoong binully, bakit hindi hinuli?  Pulis patola ang polis na ito.  Hindi alam ang dapat gawin kung walang utos ni Lim.

  • $20174498

    Naks ha! May paiyak iyak ka pa. Magkano ba ibinayad sa iyo ni LIM Balimbing? Ugok ako’y di tagahanga ni Erap. Dapat sa inyo ay maging patas at walang kinikilingan. Nakataya yong serbisyo nyo. Paano kung hindi si Lim ang mananalo, may mukha ka pa bang ihaharap sa bagong pamunuan? Sa mga sipsip na tulad nyo ay dapat kasuhan para malinis ang mga bulok na katulad nyo sa  PNP.

  • UrHONOR

    NATURAL!  Ano pa ba ang ma-aasahan sa EX-CONVICT na barumbado, babaero, lasenggero, sugarol, jueteng lord of lords, at lahat na ‘ata na ma-iisip na iba kabulastugang iligal ay na sa katangian na ng TNL na ‘to?  Bullet day, they will giant him….

    SORRY COLONEL, KASI MAY HANG-OVER PA SI ERAP NOONG NA-BULLY KA. BAKIT? ‘DI MO BA NAAMOY ANG JOHNNY WALKER?

  • $20174498

    I’ve been serving the precint the longest time! I know you’re not Chief Inspector or Major As shown on  your rank insignia (shoulder), you’re inspector or Lt only. Dati kang patrolman ng MPD who rose from the rank. Pulis pa ang amo mong si Lim andayn kana, hanggang ngayon andyan ka pa rin? dapat sa iyo i assign sa Mindanao.

  • maypakialamtayo

    binubundol kana pala edi sana hinuli mo, bakit natakot ka kay erap? kapag nanalo yan kakaladkarin kayong dalawa ni layug palabas ng maynila kagaya sa ginawa nya kay gordon sa sbma nung manalo syang pangulo.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_WN5TKEXEJ2VHQVNGP2CJEDLJH4 Jess

    Mahirap matalo si Erap sa Maynila. Yan siguro ang dahilan kung bakit nagkakaganyan si Lim, kung anu-anong ginagawa para bumalik sa kanya ang mga konsehal na umiwan sa kanya. Pero sa ginagawa niya, na kahit pa tanggihan niya ay walang maniniwala na hindisiya ang nag-utos sa mga pulis, ay lalo niyang sinisira ang kanyang liderato sa Maynila sa mata ng mga mahihirap. Tandaan, mahihirap lamang ang may pinakamalalaking boto, at napakarami nila sa Maynila.They can make or unmake their leaders.

  • mavtan

    I guess the voters of Manila will have to choose the lesser of 2 evils. Buti na lang wala na ko sa Maynila. But for me, Lim is the lesser of 2 evils.  Lim is only tough on criminals, gamblers, and the corrupt tulad ni Erap. Ehe!

  • Rovingmoron

    Dyos me, ganyan na ba talaga sa Pinas. Ang mga pulis na tuloy ang tinatakot ng politicians. BAKIT? Subukan mong mang bully ng pulis sa Los Angeles at di pinusasan kaagad at kinaladkad sa mobile or kulungan. Kung ang kapulisan sa atin ay patuloy na magpapa intimidate sa mga politiko, dapat tanggalin na lang ang PNP sa buong Pinas at maglagay ng lang kanya kanyang private armed goons. At dapat umpisa ngayon, hwag na dapat nagpapaintimidate ang pulis sa kahit kanino, kahit kay P-Noy. Kung me sala, arestuhin.

    • ApoLapullapu

      Bibully?  Defense mechanism ng isang polis na hindi alam ang kanyang trabaho.

  • Rovingmoron

    Sayang lang kasi ang taxpayers’ money ng pang sweldo sa mga pulis natin kung wala na itong silbi. I think it is high time na gampanan nila yung kanilang tungkulin kahit na sino ang masagasaan, basta nasa tama lang sila and according to law. Always read to the suspects their Miranda rights.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/SLO2H3J34O3FMPOEZPBD7QWQV4 Leysong Batong

    di maiwasan na pagbintangan kayong inutosan ni Mayor Lim dahil rally yan ng Politiko. marami naman kasing mga iligal diyan sa Manila bakit di niyo yan pagtoonan at yang rally ang hulihin niyo..puro kayo palospos..sabi mo matagal kana diyan sa Blumintrit, bakit nasawata moba ang mga iligal na pasugalan at kaadikan diyan???ungas///

  • tulfotumbong

    hindi ako magtataka na gawin ito ni estrada na isang convicted plunderer na akala niya ay presidente pa siya. hindi na ba niya natatandaan na pinatalsik siya sa malacañang. kasamaan palad ng pilipinas ay mandurugas din ang naipalit. mabuti na lang at mayroon tayong presidente ngayon na kabaliktaran ng dalawang ito.

    • ApoLapullapu

      Tanga naman talaga ang polis na ito eh.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/SLO2H3J34O3FMPOEZPBD7QWQV4 Leysong Batong

    Attention Police Chief, Alan Purisima…uso pala sir sa Police ang over staying sa isang lugar lang….Sir 29 yrs na pala yan si Chief Insp. Ed Morata, Blumentritt PCP commander diyan, abay dapat ng assigned yan sa Mindanao or other parts of the Police units in the Philippines..

  • Taiko_Kauna

    Ed Morata, bakit ka magpa bully sa isang ex-convict, ibig sabihin kaya mo lang ang mga small time criminals? Tapos napaluha ka pa sa sinapit mo? Nasaan ang iyong dignidad bilang otoridad? What a travesty, only in RP… Use use coconut shell if you cannot use your side arm!

  • $37644997

    Next time he bumped  you off that hard, hit him back and the public will back you up.

  • ApoLapullapu

    Lousy police chief arresting people without basis.  There is no gambling where there is no betting.  He does not know Criminal Law.  He should not have been appointed to his position in the first place.  No wonder that many policemen are now involved in human rights violations and other crimes.  They do not know the law.  Therefore they cannot be expected to enforce what they do not know.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_XALR35ENV2XKV327BZGZ7Q5Z5Q Ernesto

    bakit kung vice mayor ka ba di ka pwede hulihin  ng otoridad kung nagkamali ka.tanong lang ,pabingo mali yun.kung tambay pala ang nag pabingo di pwede kung vice mayor ok lang.

  • TheSmilingBandit

    “Chief Insp. Ed Morata, Blumentritt PCP commander who was teary-eyed as he answered reporters’ questions about the arrest of Manila Vice Mayor Francisco Domagoso and four city councilors for illegal gambling”

    Teary-eyed? A Chief Inspector complaining about being bullied will cry about it? I think that is over-acting.By the way, if BINGO is illegal gambling, why are there bingo places in various malls, shouldn’t they all be shut down?
