“Isa lang itong klaseng pulis na ‘to. May sakit ito sa utak. Topak. And I’m just wondering why he was able to — nakalusot sa [neuro-psychiatric examination],” President Rodrigo Duterte said regarding Police Senior Master Sergeant Jonel Nuezca who killed Sonya Gregorio and her son Frank on December 20 in Paniqui, Tarlac.
“You could detect a person by the way he answers in a — ‘yung mga tests sa neuro. Tarantado ‘yung g*** na ‘yon,” President Duterte added.
“That’s unfair and brutal masyado. Kung ako ang nandiyan, ewan ko lang. I don’t know pero I do not — I do not like oppression at ‘yang nag-ano ng tao — papahirapan niyo ang tao. Usually kasi itong pulis you tend to exhibit your authority even in matters not connected with police work. Iyong mga away-away,” Duterte said.
“‘Di ba sinabi ko: You do it right, I’m with you. You do it wrong, and there will be a hell to pay. Iyon ang sinabi ko sa aking SONA,” he noted.
“Ang akin dito ulitin ko: Do your duty enforce the law. Your actions must be in accordance with the law. You do not follow the law, mag-salvage ka, magpatay ka diyan, then I’m sorry, that is not part of the agreement of how we should do our work,” the President said.
“I’d like to call the PNP: Be sure that he is detained ha. He should not be allowed to go out kasi serious offense ‘yan. There’s no bail. So hindi maka-bail ‘yan. Diretso-diretso na ‘yan,” he said.
