PNP should be inspired, not condemned - Archbishop Valles


The newly-elected President of the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines (CBCP), Archbishop Romula Valles told that the citizens should “inspire” government police to do their job according to the rule of law and not only to condemn them in carrying out the government’s anti-drug war.
“We will not forget the killings. That is terrible. But one side of it is we will inspire the police to do their jobs according to the book,” Valles said.
“Push, inspire not condemn [the] police so they will do better in their police work,” He added.
According to Valles, if President Rodrigo Duterte did not win the election, people won’t realize the extent of drug problems in the Philippines

“I think we have to first address the problem of drugs. Drug kills, not only EJK. Parang number two na na (That comes in second),” he said. 

“It’s very sad to have the count of killings, I’m worried about it but I also wish you do calculations how many lives were destroyed by drugs, how many were killed by drugs, how many families were destroyed by drugs?”  Valles added.

‘Healthy pressure’

A program called Sagop Kinabuhi (Save Lives) is being conducted by the Archdiocese of Davao and Catholic schools, to provide rehabilitation services to pushers and users of drug. This is believed to give “more comfortable environment” from the church and Catholic schools, according to Valles.

Though it is still in progress, the first phase of the rehabilitation is already finished wherein 70 drug users have been accommodated by different churches.

“Church is more comforting and not threatening,” he said.

“Soon we will launch a 40-days intensive session that are in-house,” the Archbishop added.
