      2010 users, pushers give up in Negros Or.    


Without waiting to be arrested with a warrant, or en flagrante, or meeting an “accident” on the road, some 2,010 (as of July 6) users and pushers of illegal drugs in most towns and cities of Negros Oriental voluntarily “surrendered” themselves to their respective police stations and signed an “Oath of Free Will” to stop the use and push of illegal drugs.

No charges were filed against them, but mugshots were included in the police files just in case they will commit a drug-related crime in the future.

According to PS/Supt Harris Fama, provincial PNP director in a text blast to the CHRONICLE , as of July 1 to July 6, 2016, the following is the breakdown of surenderees in Cities /Municipalities as pushers/users- (PS means police station)

NEWS NOTES  
   



In a democratic space like ours in the Philippines, it is easier to raise an accusing finger against someone, but it is harder to prove the same unless it is of public knowledge, and the bar of public opinion will be among its accusers.

Last Tuesday, five former and current generals of the Police hierarchy were among those initially named by President Duterte as cuddling or protecting drug lords, meaning they were allegedly on the take of the millions of drug money. And have their lifestyles changed?

This public extrajudicial indictment of the five generals of the police is a high-impact move of the President in his widely supported drive to eradicate drugs in the streets which we know NO ONE would dare not to support. Yes, we all support this drive of the president who took the lead which other leaders dared not.

At the close of holiday hours on Wednesday, July 6, the unprecedented list of those who voluntarily gave up their vices of using and pushing for illegal drugs in the streets, reached a record high of 2,010 according to the latest police count——done peacefully and without firing a single shot.

This figure is based on a town by town tally of user-pusher surenderees who voluntarily went to their respective police stations to be booked and given mugshots just for the record. But no charges were filed, only their vital statistics recorded.

This is under the nationwide hunt for the drug users, pushers, and suppliers from the so-called street peddlers to the bodegeros who sell over 200 grams of shabu every week.

During the week, too, the No. l drug bodegero of Negros Oriental with links with Jaguar and other big time drug traffickers was gunned down in the heart of druglandia called Calindagan in Dumaguete.

But without waiting to be arrested with a warrant, or caught en flagrante, or end up meeting an “accident” on the road, the 2,010 (as of July 6) users and pushers of illegal drugs in most towns and cities of Negros Oriental voluntarily “surrendered” themselves to their respective police stations and signed an “Oath of Free Will” to stop the use and push of illegal drugs.
