(Enlightenment—Passage of the Day)

Q.) ARE THE WORDS OF GOD ONLY TO BE WRITTEN ON A PIECE OF PAPER, LIKE WHAT ARE BEING WRITTEN IN THE HOLY BIBLE?

A.) IT’S MORE THAN THAT. GOD WANTS HIS WORDS WRITTEN IN OUR MINDS AND HEARTS, SO THAT HE CAN DWELL IN US FOR ALL ETERNITY.

ARE THEY THE WORKS OF SABOTEURS?

ARE these reports of a supposed ulterior pattern of abduction cases that have occurred in the city in recent days out to send a strong message to our ZCPO acting director S/Supt. Neri Ignacio who has just warmed up his seat when he assumed his post here only last month of August?

In a span of about a week or two, 3 (or was it actually 4?) separate abduction cases were reported in the city.

Of-course, it didn’t just happen in our city. At-least, two reported abduction cases were also in other parts of the region—one took place in Siocon town, Zamboanga del Norte when armed men seized a young couple from their home and the following day, the 25-year old housewife was found dead with her bloodied lifeless body discovered dumped somewhere in a secluded sitio of a far-flung village of Basilan Province. The husband’s where-about is still a mystery as of the latest we gathered last week.

ANOTHER abduction incident was reported in Labason Municipality also in Zamboangadel Norte.

SO, it’s not only targeted in la bellaZamboanga, but, in most probability, the whole of Zamboanga Peninsula for its new wave of abduction or kidnaping heists. Authorities can’t exactly pinpoint as which group is perpetrating all these. Or, are they being done by separate armed men, but whose aim is one—KFR(Kidnap-For-Ransom) caper that seems to be the most lucrative illicit operation that can make any group or any individual wealthy overnight?

BACK in here in our la bellaZamboanga, Col. Ignacio, our rookie ZCPO chief, since he assumed post here last August, has been emphatic in all the statements he issued to the press when interviewed, that he needs everyone’s support and cooperation if only to make our city peaceful and secure. Heurged cops under him who’re known as supposedly scalawags, especially, those allegedly involved in illegal drugs, to mend their ways or face the severe consequences, including their possible outright dismissal from the service. The Zamboangueño top police official appears he means business here. That means don’t mess around that’ll tend to degrade the image of the local PNP here.

But, then, here comes the spate of abduction incidents that are reportedly happening right within the periphery of our city poblacion.

Is this apparently a clear case of a sabotage or a demolition job out to discredit the new administration of our own Zamboangueño son, Col. Ignacio now at the helm of our ZCPO? This isn’t uncommon anymore. In the past, the notion of not just a few pointed to a possible sabotage whenever a new name to take the mantle of the local PNP here, and that’s our ZCPO, crops up.

I remember the days of a number of sacked police chiefs of ours who just tried to get wont to their new assignment when suddenly a recall order or someone else came up as their replacements sans any elaborate reasons at all. But, we, the media then, strongly, surmised that their suddenpullouts had something to do with the supposed continuous erratic peace and order condition of the city, despite newly-designated to their posts here.

ONE vivid case that happened and the public, enraged by the supposed bad luck stint here due to the series of both man-made and natural calamities  that rendered the city in its perilous ebb in those days, was then ZCPO chief S/Supt. Francisco Cristobal. The guy, as a person, was soft-spoken and rife with good peace and order plans for the city upon his period of assumption here. UNFORTUNATELY, all of a sudden, a string of shooting incidents coupled by the harrowing inferno that reduced to ashes practically the whole community of Brgy. Camino Nuevo dealt their lethal blows at his reign that lasted just a number of days. In short, he was ultimately relieved from his post. Poor, then Col. Cristobal, he left his post quietly, and that was the last time I saw him since then.

BUT, the irony of it all, most of them—though sacked, yet surprisingly, we saw their names in its AFP or PNP roster, among those who got fast their promotions to their next ranks. What a blessing in disguise, others nastily noted.Only in the Philippines, according to them. Well, that’s how we dealunfairly, our Filipino citizens in this country. It’s no surprising, if we hear them gripe, “Why is it our gov’t more compassionate to all these rebel surrenderees who, after committing their atrocities, they’re even given all the privileges, like livelihood projects, huge cash incentives and all the other benefits? While, we, the country’s law-abiding citizens, have been always negligently overlooked and even being under constant harassments?”

Can’t blame them, for their deprecation vs. its supposed discrimination, injustice and gross neglect on the many law-abiding sectors in its society.Think of it, folks.

ZCPO SAYS ABDUCTION CASES NOT SERIES EVENT

IN yesterday’s weekly press briefing, Insp. Edwin Duco, the PIO of the ZCPO, who, as one of its resource persons, averred that there wasn’t really a series of abduction cases that were recorded the past days in our city. He, therefore, hinted more on their being isolated ones that suddenly sparked for whatever reasons? Our police seems dumfounded as to their exact motives, as they merely came up with same conjectures. That means, we have to admit we can’t simply beat them (these bad elements) in terms of comparing our intelligence or monitoring assets to theirs. There’s just no way we can, with all due respect, as we’re basically caught with our pants down when they launch their nefarious or atrocious activities in our la bellaZamboanga, considering, too, the vast expanse of our sea-lanes along the coastal areas, how can we ever monitor closely well their entrieshere, huh? This’s why the public—we, the residents, ought to extend our all-out support and cooperation to our law enforcers. And, for our law enforcers to be sincere, honest and, at all times, dedicated to their mandated tasks to primarily protect and secure our whole community here. IT needs two to tango. You show your best and we’ll show our best, as well. But if you show your worst, we’ll also show our worst part. That translates clearly and explicitly darn well to both sides that there’s the need of mutual cooperation and support between and among us all stakeholders in this community.

Insp. Duco said the city’s new ZCPO chief, Col. Ignacio, indeed, means serious business. He wants his men to make up or break up themselves from the PNP, if still they insist to go on with their own wayward ways. Hestressed this when he made his maiden appearance in Mayor Beng’s weekly CH press-con the other Monday (SEPT. 4).

BENG IN FAVOR OF CREATION OF NEW PROVINCE?

IN another issue yesterday, during the mayor’s weekly press meeting with the local media, our lady city executive, when asked to comment on the reported snowballing by a certain bonafide group here, for the proposed creation of its city’s own province, she said she’ll leave it to our lawmakers, hence she was short from categorically answering it with a yes or no response.

But, the way it appears, the lady city mayor here looks at its proposal with an open-mind.
