  Only a few police officers assigned in the Bayawan City PNP are excited to hear that they will be relieved of their duties to be sent to a refresher training possibly in Cebu or at the provincial headquarters in Sibulan.

Primarily on the strength of the recommendation of Negros Oriental Police Provincial Office Director Sr. Supt. Edward Carranza to Region 7 Director Chief Supt. Marcelo Garbo, the entire 43-man force of the Philippine National Police in Bayawan City will soon be relieved of their duties and undergo a comprehensive training course to improve their skills in handling the anti-crime of the thriving city more than 100 kilometers south of Negros Oriental.

Provincial Deputy Director Supt. Alet Virtucio said that the policemen will be undergoing refresher courses on intelligence gathering, anti-insurgency operations, community relations, operations, administration, among others to improve their overall performance as an anti-crime unit.

CRITICAL REPORTING  
   
 
by: ELY P. DEJARESCO
It is very annoying, if not hypocritical, for this government to announce that there will be no special treatment for former president Arroyo, who will be accorded with a hospital arrest starting Friday, December 9, at the Veterans Medical Center.

But of course, there is, indeed, special treatment given to Arroyo. What about the hundreds of policemen securing the Veterans hospital? That's special treatment. What about the slow down of traffic when Arroyo's convoy passes from St. Luke's Medical Center to Veterans hospital, which will surely disrupt traffic in Manila? That's special treatment, too. What about the no cellphone, no laptop for a congresswoman, is this not special treatment when we know hundreds of inmates are using cellphones inside the Bilibid prison?

EDITORIAL  
   
 
INSTEAD of refocusing his direction as president, on the priorities of the Nation, President Aquino started the week with a one-sided bullying - collision with the Supreme Court by lambasting the Highest Tribunal what PNOY describes as the faults of the Arroyo-appointed justices of the Supreme Court headed by the Chief Justice himself whom he criticized as a midnight appointee.

And the worse part is, for the first time in the history of our media coverage, here was a president in a forum of businessmen, under the theme of cooperation among leaders, almost side by side with the Supreme Court Chief Justice with only the Senate President in between them, displaying some boyish maturity by virtually embarrassing a co-equal officer, no less than the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court who simply reacted with a smile and Christmas wish of goodwill. The gesture of Christmas goodwill to all men by the Chief Justice when interviewed after he was embarrassed by the President only shows who between the two were the better statesman, and the better leader.
