Off with their heads: Richard Gomez appeals to Duterte vs ninja cops
Dirty cops should not be spared from the war on drugs, Richard Gomez said.
The actor turned Ormoc City mayor has appealed to President Rodrigo Duterte and top cop Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa to clean up the ranks of the Philippine National Police. He went as far as suggesting that narco-cops, or those with drug links, should be subject to the same penalty imposed on civilian drug pushers and users.
“Mr. President and PNP Chief Bato,
if your fight and crusade is to wipe out the problem of drugs in the country you should also wipe out these case bungling cops,” Gomez said via Facebook.
“If there are EJK for druglords there should also be the same EJK for police men who muddle drug cases and destroying the peace of the innocent.”
This came after Gomez was linked by an Eastern Visayas official from the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group as an alleged drug coddler, which he has denied.
