He got the job done and he NEVER made excuses or blamed somebody else for any problems that arose from his time as police chief.
Get the job done. No excuses. No shifting of blame.
But now, the current administration and the PNP are doing the exact opposite things.
Yes, there's an upsurge of kidnappings, bank robberies and other violent crimes. But instead of doing something about it, Mrs. Arroyo and her allies conveniently blame all their troubles on the opposition instead.
The difference between Lacson and Arroyo is that the former doesn't bitch about his problems but tries to fix it. Mrs. Arroyo OTOH, loves to scapegoat and avoid taking responsibilities for the peace and order situation.
What a miserable failure, this Mrs. Arroyo is.
Ernesto Maceda on this "blame opposition" tactic by the admin:
CITIZENS Action Against Crime reports that 10 cases of kidnapping occurred in August, double that of previous months. And to belie the PNP and AFP's claim that the bank robbers including those responsible for the Citibank heist were arrested in a Taguig raid, another bank holdup occurred the next day at a Union Bank branch in Parañaque, the 27th so far for the year.
Businessmen and civic leaders have expressed alarm. In the meantime, the CIDG and PACER are preoccupied with developing cases against opposition leaders. And now charges of ghost personnel drawing salaries and allowances in the PNP have come up once more. Bus holdups right on Edsa are still unsolved, raising continuing fears on the part of the poor commuting public.
And then you hear that a lowly fish vendor who runs to three rookie policemen is beaten up instead of assisted, then hauled to the police station where he is promptly divested of his day's earnings totaling P26,000 by no less than the station commander.
Is it any wonder that the latest Pulse Asia survey shows a big drop in President Gloria M. Arroyo's approval ratings? Malacañang reaction: Blame Sen. Panfilo Lacson.
Well Senator, style nila talagang bulok eh.
Nani Perez finds an ally in Biazon? That's what this article seems to be saying, when Biazon tried to stop Sen. Osmena from probing the Nani Perez IMPSA scandal.
