The war against dangerous drugs is the most dangerous job.
The entrapment operation of Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) on September 20, 2008 that caught young and affluent drug suspects will prove the risks of the job. The wealth and political connections of so called Alabang Boys has became the greatest threat of honest drug enforcers of PDEA.
Let the money moves. Let political influence change things. Behold wealthy suspects, you’ll soon be free!
I don’t wonder why the Alabang Boys appear so confident and relax. They know wealth and influence can save them.
One of the parents admit that he knows that his son is using drugs. He said, (my son) is a social user but not an addict. It’s no big deal.
If all of the parents of 6.7 million drug users in the Philippines think the same way, the war against drug in the country will not prosper. (Data based on 2004 survey of Dangerous Drugs Board)
The admission of one of the parent that his son is a drug user will show the kind of father he is. If he already knew that his son uses drugs, why he did not make a move before the PDEA caught his son?
It’s a big deal!
The fight against drugs is not only on the hands of the authorities. It has also become part of the responsibilities of parents, and all family members.
The Alabang Boys should remind us that the depth of drug problem in the country is too deep for our authorities to penetrate.
Narco-politics begin to manifest in public.
