Never Again! Never Forget!

Why does it matter?  Can't we move on? There is a thin line between moving forward and forgetting. The occurrence of collective amnesia did not happen only by mistake or overnight. Correctly remembering what happened during Martial Law is important, especially amidst ongoing conversations that attempt to revise history. While others have made attempts through social media platforms to cement the Martial Law's place in our cultural memory, we have a clear social responsibility to be accountable for our actions and be conscious of its impact on others and in our communities. Truths are learned to be remembered and not to be forgotten. There is nothing wrong with forgiving and moving forward, but what makes things hard to digest is when accountability is neglected. In that case, chances are, Filipinos will find it hard to value, defend, and promote our freedom. To be reminded to #NeverForget does not necessarily mean holding a grudge until our very last breath. It will

PNP chief commends PNP-13 for KAPA founder arrest

BUTUAN CITY, July 29 -- Philippine National Police (PNP) chief General Archie Francisco F. Gamboa commended the troops of Police Regional Office (PRO) 13 following the arrest of KAPA-Community Ministry International founder and president Joel A. Apolinario along with 25 others in the hinterland of Lingig town, Surigao del Sur on July 21.

During the recent virtual press conference, General Gamboa lauded the joint operation of the PRO13 Regional Special Operation Group, National Intelligence Coordinating Agency 10, 1st Special Action Battalion of the PNP Special Action Force, Regional Mobile Force Battalion 13, Surigao del Sur Provincial Mobile Force Company, Lingig Municipal Police Station, 67th Infantry Battalion of the Philippine Army, and Philippine Coast Guard in Barangay Salvacion.

The operation was based on the strength of search warrant for violations of Republic Act (R.A.) No. 10591 or the Comprehensive Law on Firearms and Ammunition and R.A. No. 9516  or Illegal Possession of Explosive issued by Atty. Catalina Shineta M. Tare-Palacio, presiding judge of the Regional Trial Court (RTC), 11th Judicial Region, Branch 41 in Cantilan, Surigao del Sur. 

The operatives also executed the warrant of arrest issued by Atty. Gil G. Bollozos, presiding judge, 10th Judicial Region, RTC, Branch 21, Cagayan de Oro City against Apolinario for syndicated estafa.

“A gunfight ensued when the operating troops were fired upon by the members of Apolinario’s armed men. Two of his men, namely Allan Binongo and Denize Dialoding died while Melecio Siano was seriously wounded,” PNP Caraga regional director Brigadier General Joselito T. Esquivel, Jr said.

Authorities confiscated several high powered firearms. These include the 30 units of M16 rifle; two units of M4 rifles; one garand rifle; four 7.62mm, M60 light machineguns; one caliber 50 sniper rifle; three caliber 22 rifles; one carbine; one shotgun; two RPG rifles; five caliber 45 pistols; two rocket propelled grenade; and several rounds of live ammunition of different caliber.

The suspects will also be charged for violations of the R.A. No. 10591 (Comprehensive Law on Firearms and Ammunition), R.A. No. 9516 (Illegal Possession of Explosive), Article 148 of the Revised Penal Code (Direct Assault), and Article 147 of the RPC (Illegal Association).

According to BGen. Esquivel, the intelligence monitoring team had started to track down the whereabouts of the subject since January of this year upon receipt of a report that he bought a private resort in an isolated place in Lingig town. 

“We believe that justice will soon be served to the victims of the KAPA. This operation shall serve as stern warning to all not to organize, entice or involve in Ponzi scheme. We will ensure the full swing of operations to stop similar Ponzi schemes and other pyramiding investment propositions that may proliferate in the region,” said BGen. Esquivel.

In his statement during the press briefing, Gen. Gamboa said that operating troops involved in the said police operation will be given appropriate awards and recognition, meritorious promotion and monetary reward for their significant accomplishment.

Meanwhile, BGen. Jimili L Macaraeg, deputy regional director for administration and chairman of the PRO13 Promotion Board also supported the statement of the PNP chief and stated that processing of the needed documentary requirements for the said promotion will commence immediately.

Para sa mga Pulahan

Kung narito ka ngayon. Marahil ay isa ka sa mga napadpad o mas magandang sabihin ay isa ka sa marites na nakatambay sa page ng mga kakampinks. Kung tama ako, para sayo talaga to!  Para sa mga PULAHAN. Wala ba kayong page na nagmamahal sa inyo kaya andito kayo sa page ng mga kakampinks? :) Salamat pa rin sa pagdalaw kahit ang purpose niyo talaga ay ang ibash kami. ✌️

Bakit Uto-Uto ang mga Pulahan?

Yung tipong habang tumitingin ka sa feed mo may nakita kang nag-share ng mga conspiracy theory. Bakit ba naeenganyo sila? Paniwalang paniwala sila. Basahin ang maikling kasagutan tungkol dito. It makes them feel special and different. It gives them a feeling of being better than others, of having their eyes opened to a 'truth' that others don't see. That's why some call non-believers 'sheeple.' I think it's similar to the feeling we get whenever we learn an obscure yet interesting piece of trivia. The thought of "No one else knows it!" I also think conspiracies appeal to the way humans think, especially now. A desire to search for patterns. There has to be reason and purpose for anything. But this is not right! I still blame the lack of the fundamental research skills that needs to be taught in school. I believe you get to have a full subject on your 4th year, but investigative skills and fact checking should be honed at a young age.

'Di kami nagkamali, we already expected those things to happen... You're making fun of our opinions pero 'di niyo magets na para 'yun sa ikabubuti ng lahat. Now, why so sudden bigla kayong nagreklamo? eh diba ginusto niyo 'yan, honestly dito samin nagsasabing nagsisisi sila sa naboto nila, for me hindi na kasalanan ng mga politiko na naloko nila kayo dahil there are so many evidences na. Pero all of you still chose to be fooled and deceived by them. But it's too late na eh nakaupo na sila sa pwesto na hindi nila deserve. Pero ito na lang... Let our response be, GINUSTO NIYO 'YAN!
