  Mayors urge: Train lousy PNP probers
To further preserve the peace through quality and scientific results in the investigation that will stand the rigorous tests in the courts, mayors are expected to reply positively to the plea of the PNP itself to finance the training of the policemen assigned in their jurisdiction.
 
 


   
HEADLINE  
   
 
Some P120,000 were carted away after a broad daylight robbery in one of the city's biggest 24-hour drug stores. The heist was unscrupulously linked to the drug enforcing agency when the four hold-uppers pretended to conduct a raid on illegal drugs.

The drama, which lasted for ten minutes, was recorded on CCTV cameras footage of which was released to the CHRONICLE. The PDEA raid-pretense worked, even as the police quick-response team, which came ten minutes later, was only a few minutes away from the getaway convoy.

CRITICAL REPORTING  
   
 
by: ELY P. DEJARESCO

The members of the defense panel in the Corona impeachment trial in the Senate are seemingly performing better than the prosecution panel so far. But the legal battle is still picking up and gaining momentum. It resumes on Tuesday Day 6.

What is being displayed by the impeachment trial is that there is no substitute for experience. In every curve, the defense panel had always ammunition to throw at the prosecution while the latter could not deliver equal counter punches. If there were scorecards as in a boxing match, the defense panel could have the initial edge. But legal experts say, the impeachment trial could last at least for ninety days or more

EDITORIAL  
   
 
Enter now impeachment season when "traditional due process" gives way to a "political brand of due process" which was to deliver the public's perception of public accountability in the historic and unprecedented impeachment trial of the chief justice of the Supreme Court, no less, which began to unfold Monday, January l6, in the halls of the Senate. It's first week is over. It could run for six months, legal minds opine. For once, the Filipino people romanticized on how the Romans of old expressed their "hunger for blood" in the coliseum, when it started Monday. Now the enthusiasm is, as usual, dwindling, but not among intellectuals and legal aficionados who monitor the proceedings everyday even if "it brims with verbose legalese."

READER'S VIEWS  
   
 
May I call the attention of Dauin Mayor Niel Credo to fix the flooded condition at the mouth of the Maayong Tubig Creek in Dauin wherein the floods have made it impassable. The shallow creek of 12 inches is now 8 feet of water at times. People cannot cross over. The site, Mr. Mayor, for verbiage of 'whats-what,': Before the storm, to get to your homes on the beachfront by car, you would drive down a paved (cemented) road to the beachfront dirt road that runs along the beachfront.
