'Respond in 2 minutes'—NCRPO chief to cops

Despite the relatively quick resolution of at least two high-profile crimes in past weeks, the Metro Manila police reminded its personnel on crime prevention as well as the two-minute time limit for responding to crimes.

Metro Manila police head Chief Superintendent Leonardo Espina also reminded his men they should not let down their guard down especially with the holidays approaching, radio dzBB's Glen Juego reported Tuesday.

Espina also said he would still rather have police preventing crimes with visibility, than having to solve crimes after they happen.

Still, he commended the Quezon City police for their quick action in solving the killing

of model and TV talent Julie Ann Rodelas with the arrest of model Althea Altamirano and her boyfriend Fernando Quiambao Jr.

The case was the second brutal killing in past weeks, coming after the killing of University of Santo Tomas alumna Cyrish Magalang

in Cavite, who died of 49 stab wounds.

Espina said he wants Metro Manila police to be on their beat on a 24/7 basis.

He also reminded them to coordinate with local village officials in patrolling their areas of responsibility. –KG, GMA News

    Ayungin dilemma

    China faces a dilemma in Ayungin Shoal and other contested areas. If it waits for the ITLOS—which may decide against it—it would have tacitly bound itself to UNCLOS and risk a rogue state reputation if it asserts its claim in the South China Sea. If its militarily acts now, it may face international isolation. …
