25 people died

due to crystal meth last year in the Free State of Bavaria where I live. The police here didn’t shoot them, although they once helped the Philippine National Police (link) professionalize. A program that is suspended now – good as I don’t like my taxes helping Tokhang. Some Filipino hardliners might say, yeah yeah, Germans […]

Atio Castillo died

on Sept. 17, 2017, probably because of hazing. The details make me angry in their sheer perversion (link) and as Justice Secretary Aguirre himself does not want the details of the affidavit upon which the article is based made public, I am reprinting it as a comment after this article.

Merong mga narereport na pulis na gumagamit sa gyera laban sa droga para mangkotong (link) – kaya kailangang alamin kung saan […]

In Operation Archimedes

“law enforcement authorities from 34 countries, coordinated and supported by Europol from its headquarters in The Hague… targeted organised crime groups and their infrastructures across the European Union (EU) in a series of actions in hundreds of locations, with the cooperation of Eurojust, Frontex and Interpol.” (link) – strangely enough, I hardly noticed anything in […]
