Netizens urge Philippine National Police (PNP) Chief Dir. Gen. Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa to resign amid controversies in the police force – ‘extra-judicial killings’, Mayor Espinosa’s death inside jail and the recent murder of a South Korean businessman inside Camp Crame.

Chief Bato dela Rosa urged to resign

Alleged drug lord Albuera Mayor Rolando Espinosa was shot dead in an alleged shootout inside the Baybay City Provincial Jail last November.

Jee Ick Joo was abducted together with his househelp from his home in Angeles City, Pampanga by armed men last October 18, 2016.  Later, the abductors were identified as members of the PNP and a ransom was paid amounting to P5 million. Just recently, the chief PNP confirmed reports that Jee was killed inside the national police headquarters.

Parang gusto kong mamatay sa hiya,” Bato said referring to the slay of Jee inside Camp Crame compound.

The #BatoResign hashtag trended on Twitter after netizens expressed their dismay over the controversies that the PNP organization is facing.

Despite the controversy, Bato said that the PNP organization is better under the Duterte administration.

“Ngayon lang ba napatayan ng Koreano? Panahon lang ni President Duterte? ‘Di ba ang daming namatay noon?” dela Rosa said.

“For all you know, magprangkahan tayo, mas marami krimen noon pa, sa hindi pa panahon ni Presidente Duterte iyong police na sindikato na iyan na hindi nalalaman dahil iyong liderato ng PNP, hindi ganoon katindi iyong paghahabol, pag-internal cleansing ng kapulisan. Sorry po sa mga nagdaan na Chief PNP. Sorry po. I don’t mean to offend. Hindi man din sila magtapang-tapangan kung wala silang presidente na backup nila na ganoon katapang,” he added.
