WEED OUT MISFIT COPS -- GMA

Camp Crame, QC, Jan. 31, 2003 (Malaya) - President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo yesterday ordered Philippine National Police chief Hermogenes Ebdane Jr. to take out misfits and undesirables in the PNP to strengthen public faith in the uniform.

The key is to jail the rascals in uniform, whether active or retired, the President said.

She asked the public to help weed out rascals in uniform by using their cell phones and texting PNP 2920 to report the activities of criminals and rogue cops.

The President said that before addressing the officers and men of the PNP, Ebdane briefed her about the "A-Ba-Ka-Da" campaign against PNP members who are "abusado, bastos, kotongero and di-kanais-nais (abusive, arrogant, extortionist and undesirable)."

"Let us step up this campaign ... This goes well with our intensified drive against graft and corruption in government," she said.(Malaya)
