Do you still have faith on our cops?

Many scandal and problem encircle our policemen. So do you still believe and respect our cops? I'm not that happy with the behavior of the police around metro manila, like what happen to the Failon family and the way they apprehend the "car nappers" along EDSA. And also the EURO Generals Scandal which created a big controversy. It's a shame to have these kind of policemen. But I'm still happy for those men in uniform who are honestly working for the people and our country.

Hello jaybergonia, good day to you. Honestly speaking i think here in our country in the Philippines there are a great number of cops or policeman that are not doing their job in the right way, I am not talking to all cops but only to those bad cop. A example of a bad police man or cop here in our country are those who ask a small amount of money to the driver of vehicle that they are arrested and have done wrong in the road. Even though the police got the license of a particular driver still they are trading it for a money and when the driver accept it, the cops will bring back the driver linces and as if no more things happen. I know you already see some cops who are doing this kind of operandi, I'm just thinking why they do that particular thing? Is it due to the low economy of the country? Or does the salary of the cops are low and can't sustain their needs at home. Well, may be the truth is they only do that thing to have some extra cash in their wallet for their need due to financial problem and the low economy. I guess this particular example is know all of the Filipino and it really means to them that some cops are bad like this cops. I think it's already pasted in their mind and knowing it is some kind of being a Filipino. But i do still believe that some cops are good which didn't do bad things in their duties especially in the road, as i remember in the news in some part of Manila a cop see a lost wallet with a great amount of money and the thing that he do is he find the owner of the wallet and he was awarded a loyalty award. If all cops are just like that cop, I think many citizen of our country will no longer think negative to a cop. Well, I do still have faith in good cops that they can do their duty clean and honest. Then regarding to those bad cops, yes I still believe to them that the time will came that they will also change and be one of the good cops. I guess this coming election of 2010 and the right person is vote in the right position. Things will change and will fine to us especially to the justice or what i am talking about is the police. Well, that's all the end of my response here in your forum topic discussion entitled "do you still have faith on our cops?". Thank you! I am hoping that i give a good interesting response! Happy posting and happy earning to everyone of us! Good luck to our earning career here in this site mylot.

Sad to say, I don't have much of respect to PI cops. Most of them seem they don't know what they're job really is.. Basically we all know that they catch the bad guys.. However, there are just some cops who are using their power to do their dirty deeds and like to show off.. I hate those! My dad has a friend who's a Major cop, somewhat, I find him nice, or maybe because my dad knows him... Well actually he is nice. But like at some cops on the streets and along the highways and expressways, they're sorta patrolling or whatever they're doing, seems not working to me. They're even the one who don't follow traffic rules along the roads and turn on their sirens and horn to get in the way.. Like a mad driver.. I don't know for PI cops, I don't seem to trust them anymore..

when we were little kids we were told that the policemen were to guard us people, but now another notion come into my mind, cops are a national machine, merely. they just do anything for the ruling class, for themselves, forht small group of the rich, so there no faith on them.SO NEVER believe in them, never wish them can give you an reasonable answer.

i used to have faith in them, in fact, i wanted to be a cop when i was younger. but now, the policemen who i used to look up to are not the same anymore. i don't know if i could still even trust them. i just hope everything changes and i hope every mistake they've made is corrected.

i really don't believe in our cops here in the Philippines. the word "Pinoy cop" for me is synonymous to "power tripper" "trigger happy" and other words like abusive and arrogant. we've seen a lot of incidents where cops, although not all of them, were involved in human rights violations. they just use their power to threaten the defenseless ones where in reality, they are supposed to protect their constituents.

Sometimes I think what cops really are for. Just like yesterday when we are riding on our way home with my husband. We saw a Patrol Car that makes a U turn on the road but it has no sign of U turn in that. And that road is prohibited in making all vehicles to U turn. But why is that Patrol Car of the Police do? As my husband says " Law Maker, Law Breaker".

philippines - visit the philippines
yeah, I still do have faith in our policement but not all. There are policemen who still can be trusted while there are many who can't be trusted anymore. It's a shame to our country to have inept uniformed people.

Our Local Cops? Their image for me is like a Local Dog. I prefer the security guards dedication to work than them. I salute or cops. But not all of them. I feel secure if I see some SWAT roaming around but if that is a policeman? tsktsk.. If you can only bring back the time when the former PNP chief which is a senator now is ruling them. I don't think they will have an image like that.
