The PNP already has an insurmountable amount of blood debt in Masbate but they still thirst for more. PNP Chief Guillermo Eleazar’s directive, during his visit in Bikol, to further intensify police operations in the said province means even more chaos, violence and distress for the Masbatenyo masses. Even without this trigger-happy order, 72 cases of killings were recorded in the province since the beginning of Duterte’s term. Eight out of the 11 cases of massacre in the region also happened in Masbate. This is equivalent to one Masbatenyo slain by AFP-PNP elements every month.
