January 30, 2017
It takes the death of a South Korean businessman – an embarrassment, says President Duterte – for the PNP to realize it's gone too far in its war on drugs.
Lest we forget, two things have led to the breakdown in the PNP – on top of its inherent organizational weaknesses:
  • President Duterte has unleashed a culture of impunity in his centerpiece war-on-drugs program.
  • De la Rosa’s leadership has inordinately focused on his visibility and self-promotion rather than keeping a tight rein on the police force.
