MANILA, Philippines — Senate President Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel on Thursday slammed the Philippine National Police for lack of peace and order as he condemned the killing of a Puerto Galera, Oriental Mindoro councilor and his son.

Councilor Melchor Arago, 52, and his son Kenneth, 15, were shot dead by two unidentified men onboard a motorcycle.

“This is yet another murder by the now usual modus operandi of motorcycle-riding gunmen. Where is the peace and order that [PNP chief] Dela Rosa says the people are ungrateful for?” Pimentel said referring to PNP Director General Ronald “Bato ” Dela Rosa’s latest statement calling critics of the war on drugs as “ingrates.”

Dela Rosa earlier said the public benefited from the peace and order the anti-illegal drug campaign brought.

Pimentel asked Dela Rosa to shape up as he said “criminals are being emboldened by what they see as the incompetence of the PNP in catching them.”

The Senate president urged for proper training and modernization of tools for the PNP to carry out the administration’s campaign against drugs and criminality.

“The Filipino people deserve a modern, professional, and capable police force. Right now, the PNP is none of the above. We need to take radical action to change this state of affairs,” Pimentel said. ​— Rosette Adel
