Subject: Beware

Dear all

    I cannot stop myself from sharing this with all of you.

    Its all started when I received a call from someone claiming that he was from Maxis and he asked me to shutdown my phone for 2 hours for 3g update to take place. As I was rushing for a meeting, I did
not question and shutdown my cell phone.

   
   After 45 minutes I felt very suspicious since the caller did not even introduce his name. I quickly turned on my cell phone and I received several calls from my family members and the others were from
the number that had called me earlier - 3954380.


   I called my parents and I was shocked that they sounded very worried asking me whether I am safe. My parents told me that they had received a call from someone claiming that they had me with them and asking for money to let me free. The call was so real and my parents even heard 'my voice' crying out loud asking for help. My parent was at the bank waiting for next call to proceed for money transfer. I told my parents that I am safe and asked them to lodge a police report.


   Right after that I received another call from the guy asking me to shutdown my cell phone for another 1 hour which I refused to do and hung up. They keep calling my cell phone until the battery had run down. I myself lodged a police report and I was informed by the officer that there were many such scams reported. MOST of the cases reported that the victim had already transferred the money! And it is impossible to get back the money.

  Be careful as this kind of scam might happened to any of us!!!  Those guys are so professional and very convincing during calls. If you are asked to shut down your cell phone for updates by the service provider, ASK AROUND! Your family or friends might receive the same call.

  Be Safe and Stay Alert

This could save your life in the event of earthquake!

EXTRACT FROM DOUG COPP'S ARTICLE ON THE: 'TRIANGLE OF LIFE'


     My name is Doug Copp. I am the Rescue Chief and Disaster Manager of the American Rescue Team International (ARTI), the world's most experienced rescue team. The information in this article will save lives in an earthquake.

     I have crawled inside 875 collapsed buildings, worked with rescue teams from 60 countries, founded rescue teams in several countries, and I am a member of many rescue teams from many countries.

     I was the United Nations expert in Disaster Mitigation for two years. I have worked at every major disaster in the world since 1985, except for simultaneous disasters.

     The first building I ever crawled inside of was a school in Mexico City during the 1985 earthquake. Every child was under its desk. Every child was crushed to the thickness of their bones. They could have survived by lying down next to their desks in the aisles. It was obscene, unnecessary and I wondered why the children were not in the aisles. I didn't at the time know that the children were told to hide under something. I am amazed that even today schools are still using the ?Duck and Cover? instructions- telling
the children to squat under their desks with their heads bowed and covered with their hands. This was the technique used in the Mexico City school.

     Simply stated, when buildings collapse, the weight of the ceilings falling upon the objects or furniture inside crushes these objects, leaving a space or void next to them. This space is what I call the 'triangle of life'. The larger the object, the stronger, the less it will compact. The less the object compacts, the larger the void, the greater the probability that the person who is using this void for safety will not be injured. The next time you watch collapsed buildings, on television, count the 'triangles' you see formed. They are everywhere. It is the most common shape, you will see, in a collapsed building.

TIPS FOR EARTHQUAKE SAFETY

     1) Almost everyone who simply 'ducks and covers' when buildings collapse ARE CRUSHED TO DEATH. People who get under objects, like desks or cars, are crushed.

     2) Cats, dogs and babies often naturally curl up in the fetal position. You should too in an earthquake. It is a natural safety/survival instinct. That position helps you survive in a smaller void. Get next to an object, next to a sofa, next to a large bulky object that will compress slightly but leave a void next to it.

     3) Wooden buildings are the safest type of construction to be in during an earthquake. Wood is flexible and moves with the force of the earthquake. If the wooden building does collapse, large survival voids are created. Also, the wooden building has less concentrated, crushing weight. Brick buildings will break into individual bricks. Bricks will cause many injuries but less squashed bodies than concrete slabs. Concrete slab buildings are the most dangerous during an earthquake.

     4) If you are in bed during the night and an earthquake occurs, simply roll off the bed. A safe void will exist around the bed. Hotels can achieve a much greater survival rate in earthquakes, simply by posting a sign on the back of the door of every room telling occupants to lie down on the floor, next to the bottom of the bed during an earthquake.

     5) If an earthquake happens and you cannot easily escape by getting out the door or window, then lie down and curl up in the fetal position next to a sofa, or large chair.

     6) Almost everyone who gets under a doorway when buildings collapse is killed. How? If you stand under a doorway and the doorjamb falls forward or backward you will be crushed by the ceiling above. If the door jam falls sideways you will be cut in half by the doorway. In either case, you will be killed!

     7) Never go to the stairs. The stairs have a different 'moment of frequency (they swing separately from the main part of the building). The stairs and remainder of the building continuously bump into each other until structural failure of the stairs takes place. The people who get on stairs before they fail are chopped up by the stair treads ? horribly mutilated. Even if the building doesn't collapse, stay away from the stairs. The stairs are a likely part of the building to be damaged. Even if the stairs are not collapsed by the earthquake, they may collapse later when overloaded by fleeing people. They should always be checked for safety, even when the rest of the building is not damaged.

     8) Get Near the Outer Walls Of Buildings Or Outside Of Them If Possible - It is much better to be near the outside of the building rather than the interior. The farther inside you are from the outside perimeter of the building the greater the probability that your escape route will be blocked.

     9) People inside of their vehicles are crushed when the road above falls in an earthquake and crushes their vehicles; which is exactly what happened with the slabs between the decks of the Nimitz Freeway. The victims of the San Francisco earthquake all stayed inside of their vehicles. They were all killed. They could have easily survived by getting out and lying in the fetal position next to their vehicles. Everyone killed would have survived if they had been able to get out of their cars and sit or lie next to them.
All the crushed cars had voids 3 feet high next to them, except for the cars that had columns fall directly across them.

     10) I discovered, while crawling inside of collapsed newspaper offices and other offices with a lot of paper, that paper does not compact. Large voids are found surrounding stacks of paper.

     In 1996 we made a film, which proved my survival methodology to be correct. The Turkish Federal Government, City of Istanbul , University of Istanbul Case Productions and ARTI cooperated to film this practical, scientific test. We collapsed a school and a home with 20 mannequins inside. Ten mannequins did 'duck and cover,' and ten mannequins I used in my 'triangle of life' survival method. After the simulated earthquake collapse we crawled through the rubble and entered the building to film and document the results.

     The film, in which I practiced my survival techniques under directly observable, scientific conditions, relevant to building collapse, showed there would have been zero percent survival for those doing duck and cover.

     There would likely have been 100 percent survivability for people using my method of the 'triangle of life.' This film has been seen by millions of viewers on television in Turkey and the rest of Europe, and it was seen in the USA , Canada and Latin America on the TV program Real TV.

Spread the word and save someone's life... The entire world is experiencing natural calamities so be prepared!

Police busts ATM and credit card syndicate

 Authorities busted group “high-tech” thieves engaged in the cloning of major ATM and credit cards during entrapment operations at a gasoline station in Barangay Sta. Rita, Guiguinto, Bulacan on November 11, 2009.

PSSUPT Diosdado Ramos, Bulacan Police Provincial Director, said, four suspected members of a syndicate victimizing credit card holders were nabbed by Guiguinto policemen headed by PSUPT Erick Ancheta.

The suspects were identified as Ernesto Luy, 54 years old, businessman, a resident of Parañaque City; Jose Mari Peña, 35 years old, married, resident of Sta. Cruz, Manila; Marivic Loreno, 48 years old, and Joseph Guarin, 36 years old, married, both resident of Barangay Pinagbakahan, Malolos City.

The group uses ATM card duplicating devices allegedly in connivance with still unidentified employees of some commercial establishments. Once a credit card holder swipes his card, he machine will copy all information, including the coded access numbers of the ATM and credit card holders. This technique helps the syndicate to easily withdraw money from the ATM machines or make transactions during the cloned ATM and major credit cards.

According to Ramos, Luy even tried to bribe Ancheta with P50,000 cash, but was unsuccessful.

PNP intensifies campaign against polluters

 Security measures to protect the country’s seas from polluters were intensified by the Maritime Group in an order by the Philippine National Police Chief Police Director General Jesus A Verzosa.

The PNP Chief led the coastal clean-up in Zamboanga City together with the Police Regional Office 9, the Maritime Group and some volunteers. He also inaugurated the maritime Group’s Boat House.

Versoza reiterated the police leadership will take the lead in enforcing environmental ordinances. “The recent calamities are wake-up calls to all of us to do our share in protecting our environment”, Versoza said.

The Pulis Makakalikasan and Scubasurero projects are the remarkable strides of the PNP in environmental protection. These projects involve massive tree-planting and clean-up of seas.

“Through the years, the police’s role has taken on new dimensions. As our country makes great strides to growth and development, the PNP has become not only the keeper of peace but also an advocate for a greener environment", Versoza averred.

The PNP Chief stresses at the same time that as the campaigns against crime are in steadfast, the battles against those who pollute the environment are equally given attention by the PNP.

PNP sets reward for loose firearms

PNP Chief PDG Jesus A Versoza, urges the public to tip off the police on the presence of illegal guns in their neighbourhood and make instant money.

                Versoza stressed that the public should help the police to crackdown loose firearms and their owners to avoid future damages to their neighbourhood. “If you are afraid of your neighbours who fire their guns indiscriminately when they are drunk, tip them to the authority and get huge monetary rewards, “said Versoza.  The tipster should not be bothered because their identity will be kept confidential.

                PNP Deputy Chief for Operations, PDDG Jefferson P Soriano stressed that the monetary reward will only recompense the informants who will guide authorities to a hoard of unlicensed weapons and their possessors, particularly, when they turn out to be wanted criminals. “No suspect, no reward,” reiterated Soriano. Plans are also mapped out to prevent violence that may be committed in the conduct of an aggressive operation to account for the 938,000 loose firearms in the country out of the estimated 1.1 million last July.

                The PNP was able to surpass its target in weapon’s collection. Moreover, to avoid any conflict with the law.

                The rewards scale for the information on loose firearms ranges from P50,000 to P200,000 depending on the type and quantity of loose firearms involved. Now, the public can help in the maintenance of peace and order in the community and will be properly compensated for it.

 

Dateline: Internet Philippine Style

 I’ve been using the internet for two years now when I decided to continue my advocacy in crime prevention. Being the national Deputy Commander for Operations of Mike Delta Force Intelligence and Communications Group (MDF), and the Secretary General of Security Guards Association of the Philippines, Inc., all are non-governmental organization, I made each a web site in order to expand the membership and operations of the these organizations.

Although, we found some problems on the members who are not computer literate, who can’t even afford to log in at the web site. Eventually, we taught some of them, those who are interested to learn the art, and now they’re on the list. Our problem is how to teach our other 40 thousand members out there from the different provinces including Metro Manila.

One option I’ve made was to invite prospected members from the different web sites to join the organization with the belief that these recruits will surely help a long way in the project especially in expanding the media mileage of the group. The result is positive. We acknowledged so many friends numbering to more than a hundred including those from the other countries. But we’ve got a problem wherein the majority are merely longing to be friends-for-chat and exchange-of-pleasantries. Others are Just for fun and non-directional conversations.

The result, only three people are considered cause-oriented and religiously joined the group. All the rest became my chatmates and two males become my suitors. But I told them frankly that I am already married to “Public Service”. Sometimes, it took me the whole evening chatting with them. And you know what? The subject of the conversations are more on friendship, courtship sex and mostly nonsense sweet nothings. I don’t blame myself for what I’ve done. In fact it taught me lessons.

Now my previous activities in Camp Crame grandstand where I conduct lecture every Sunday from 9:00 a.m. to 12 noon, was changed. Instead of conducting lectures, talking for 2 consecutive hours in front of my audience, I’m using my fingers and mind for almost ten hours a day to use my computer, chatting with them. Oh my goodness. This is it. I found the real meaning of internet: A very nice place where to find lovers. Perhaps that’s what friends are for. Internet! Anyone?

Kahit na Aids Victim, Sa Lipunan ay May Saysay Pa Rin

            “There is still life after AIDS!”, ito ang quotation na sa palagay ko ay pinanghahawakan ni Ginoong Joshua Formentera, Chairperson sa idinaraos ngayon na 3rd National Concensus & Consultation Meeting(NCCM) sa College Assurance Plan (CAP) Auditorium sa lunsod ng Makati. Tema ng talakayan ay “Living, Working and Sustaining Now”. Nakapaloob dito ang pagbibigay inpirasyon sa lahat ng mga AIDS victim di lamang sa bansa kundi sa buong daigdig para gawin pang makabuluhan ang kanilang buhay at patuloy na magsikap para umunlad sa kabila ng taglay nilang wala pang lunas na karamdaman.

        Bilang patutoo ng kanilang pakay, sinabi ni Ginoong Formentera sa kanyang panimulang pagbati na sa loob ng nagdaang 20 taon na siya ay may Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome o AIDS, siya ay nananatiling masaya, positibo ang pananaw sa buhay at naging mas malusog pa at kapaki pakinabang kaysa nang wala pa siyang AIDS.

        Ang mensahe rin ni Health Secretary Francisco T. Duque III na binasa ng kumatawan sa kanyang si Dr. Chito Avelino, Chairman ng National AIDS Council (NAC) ay naglalaman ng “walang katapusang  paghikayat” sa mga may AIDS na huwag susuko, patuloy na lumaban at maging ehemplo sa pagbuo o paghubog ng ideyal na sambayanan. Sinabi nito na ang pagiging positibo sa karamdaman dapat ay ang magsilbi rin sa pagkakaroon ng positibong pagkilos tungo sa kaganapan ng mga minimithi hindi lamang para sa sarili kundi para sa lahat.

        Ang mga binanggit ng mga sumunod pang nangusap ay tuwirang nag-atas sa lahat ng naruroon para wag mawalan ng pag-asa at gawing kalasag ang pagiging positibo sa AIDS para sa matibay na pakikibaka sa buhay.

        Hindi lamang sa pagsasalita kinakitaan ng galing ang pamunuan gayundin ang mga kalahok ng 3rd NCCM kundi maging sa pag-awit sa pangunguna ng ZOTO Band.

        Ang unang plenary session ay kinatampukan ng paksang, ”Kami Noon, Ngayon at Bukas”. Ang ulat sa naging pagpupulong ng mga pinuno ay inilahad ni Bb. Lorna P. Garcia, ang 3rd NCCM report ay ipinagkaloob ni Dr. Reynaldo Imperial at ang GIPA, na may paksang “Sila Noon, Kami Ngayon” ay buong husay na tinalakay ni Madam Elsa Chia ng Babae Plus.

        Makapananghali ay nagkaroon ng parallel sessions. Sa Room 1 ay may Stigma & Discrimation sessions na pinangasiwaan nina ASEC Jose Arturo de Castro, Atty. Carlo Martin Alcala-PAFPI, Noel Pascual-PPA at Moderator si Dr. Ferchito Avelino-PNAC Secretariat.

        Sa Room 2 naman ay Migration & HIV na pinangunahan nina Amara Quesada-ACHIEVE, Marites Cardines-CEBU+, ASEC Tess Soriano ng DOLE at moderator si Eddie Razon-PPA.

        Making Livelihood Work naman ang pangunahing paksang pinag usapan sa Room 3 sa pangunguna nina Hazel Miranda-DSWD, Efren Cruz-Consultant, Reactor, Consultant Bong Cabrera at Nelson Yap ng ASP na tumayong moderator.

        Ang Plenary Session 3 na may pamagat na “Gamot ko, karapatan at katungkulan ko” ay kinapalooban ng mga pag-uulat tungkol sa Philippine Repor ARV/Treatment, ARV Literacy, Updates & Plans, ARV Issues and Concerns-HSP, TCS Services Package, Affected Family Involvement at Advocacy for Treatment Plan. Mga naging tagapagsalita sina Dir. Yolanda Oliveros-DOH/NASPCP; Dr. Rosanna Ditangco-RITM; Dr. Rosario Abrenica-SLH; Joy Morin-TDF; Liza Carlos-AF at Joshua CT. Formentera-PAFPI.

        Ang iba pang detalye ng kaganapan ay iuulat ko sa susunod na artikulong aking susulatin. 

"The Miranda Doctrine"

Suspects are presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond reasonable doubt

   The Miranda doctrine is a warning given by police officers when apprehending suspects. This doctrine states the rights of the suspect as provide in the 1987 Philippine Constitution: Any person under investigation for the commission of an offense shall have the right to be informed of his right to remain silent and to have a competent and independent counsel preferably of his own choice. If the person cannot afford the services of a counsel, he must be provided with one. These rights cannot be waived except in writing and in the presence of a counsel.

   The Miranda Rights originated from the landmark decision of the United States Supreme Court in the case of Miranda versus Arizona (384 U.S. 436 (1966).

   Ernesto Arturo Miranda, an indigent 23-year old man from Phoenix Arizona was arrested for the crime of kidnapping and raping an 18-year old woman in March 1963. At the police station, he was taken to an interrogation room where he was questioned about the crimes as he was identified by the victim.

   Miranda at first maintained his innocence, but the police later emerged from the room with a signed written confession of guilt after two hours of questioning. Miranda wrote his confessions down and at the top of each sheet was the printed certification “that the statement has been made voluntarily and of my own free will, with no threats, coercion or promises of immunity and full knowledge of my legal rights, understanding any statement I make can and will be used against me”. Despite Miranda’s written confession, he was not informed of his right to have an attorney present or of his right to remain silent. At his trial, written confession was admitted into evidence and Miranda was found guilty of kidnapping and rape. He was sentenced to 20 to 30 years imprisonment on each charge, with sentences to run concurrently.

   The case was appealed to the Arizona Supreme Court but the charges were upheld.

   The police admitted that neither before nor during the questioning had Miranda been advised of his right to consult an attorney before answering any question.

   He was not advised that he has the right to have an attorney present during the interrogation. It was also unclear if Miranda had been told that anything he said could be used against him. Under the voluntariness test, the confessions made by Miranda would have been admissible. But the confession obtained from him under circumstances did not satisfy the new constitutional standards the court was to promulgate in this very case.

   Prior to the decision made in Miranda, the admissibility of a confession in a state criminal case was governed by the due process “voluntariness” or “totality of the circumstances” test. The courts decided on a case-by-case basis whether the will of the person who confessed had been voluntary. But these terms were used as mere conclusions and not as tools of analysis.

   In November 1065, the Supreme Court agreed to hear Miranda’s case. His lawyers submitted their argument stating that Miranda’s Sixth Amendment right to counsel had been violated by the Phoenix Police Department. Miranda had not been advised of his right to remain silent when he had been arrested and questioned, adding the Fifth Amendment argument to his case. It was contended that an emotionally disturbed man with limited education like Miranda should not be expected to know his Fifth Amendment right not to incriminate himself.

   Chief Justice Earl Warren wrote the opinion in favor of Miranda. It stated that “The person in custody must, prior to interrogation, be clearly informed that he has the right to remain silent, and that anything he says will be used against him in court; he must be clearly informed that he has the right to consult with a lawyer and to have the lawyer with him during interrogation, and that, if he is indigent, a lawyer will be appointed to represent him”.

   The opinion was released on June 13, 1966 and because of the ruling, police departments in the United States started to issue the Miranda Warnings. Miranda was instead sentenced to11 years. He served one third of his sentence and was finally paroled in December 1972. He was later killed in a knife fight. His killer received the Miranda warnings, evoked his rights and declined to give a statement.

   As a reminder, law enforcers must not go overboard nor abuse their authority in implementing laws and apprehending criminals. This is the reason why human rights subjects have been incorporated in all programs of instructions, and even in the basic recruit program. Series of seminars are being conducted for PNP personnel to instill in them the protection of human rights. While various programs are also being implemented so that the police can perform his duty without violating the rights of any suspect. During the actual arrests, the apprehending officer must recite the Miranda Doctrine and make the suspect understand his constitutional rights. Even the hardened criminals have rights.

   But there are times when a finger would be pointed to the police as human rights violators. It is a reality that policemen cannot evade being cited for alleged human rights violations because of the nature of their confession.

   However, the performance of duty, law enforcers must always do their best not to commit any human rights violation when making the arrest when there is the use of handcuffs and regulation batons to restrain a resisting person are needed. The PNP acknowledges that human rights and its instrumentalities serve as the first business of policing.

Alak!

    Alak! Likidong sa karamiha’y pang-kasiyahan. Simbolo ng kaganapan ng alin mang okasyon. Hantungan ng mga ma-problema. Solusyon sa mabibigat na suliranin. Sukatan ng pagka-lalaki.


   Sandigan ng katatagan. Kongkretong patutoo ng mabuting pagkakaibigan at anila’y inumin para sa mga may pinagsamahan.

   Kung iisa-isahin, tunay nanakalalasing at halos nakapagpapahandusay kaninuman ang mga boladas na nakapaloob kapag ang pag-uusapan na ay alak.

   Hindi maubus-ubos ang mga “wentong” kalakip nito na sa tunay na buhay kung pag-aaralan lamang ay pawang mga “walang wenta”.

   Ah! Saan nga ba nagsisimula at nagtatapos ang mga kaganapang kinasasangkutan ng alak?

   Si “Imo” ay isang lider sa kanilang lugar. Magaling mamuno at makisama. Halos lahat ay saludo sa kanya. Iyan ay kung hindi siya lasing at minumura ng misis na galit sa panay-panay niyang pag-inom. Kumbaga sa baso, ang pagkatao ni Imo ay may pingas. Hindi ganap ang paggalang sa kanya ng mga nasasakupan. Natatapos ang napakarami niyang  magagandang katangian dahil sa  katatagay.

   Tulad ni Imo, si “Baste” ay huwarang empleyado sa kanilang opisina. Masipag mag-trabaho, Lahat halos ay pinupuri siya. Kaya lamang nang minsang malasing at halos hindi  na makagulapay, ito’t napakadaldal sa pagsasabi ng lahat ng baho ng mga kaanak na sana kung hindi siya lasing ay hindi nalaman ng mga kasamahan.

   Si “Mulong” naman ay idolo ng mga kabataan sa kanilang lugar. Atleta ito. Matipuno at sa katunaya’y “crush” ng bayan. Nang makumbida ito sa birthday at napasabak sa inuman, akalain ba naming maihi sa salawal at umuwi na gumagapang.
   Iisa lamang ito sa hindi matapus-tapos na kwento tungkol sa karanasan ng mga manginginom na ‘di man tuwiran ay parang anay na ngumangatngat sa kanilang mga personalidad.

   At sa kabuhayan ng mag-anak, gaano ba kalaki ang halaga ng salaping naba-bale-wala kapalit ng panandaliang kahibangang dulot ng alak?

   Sa isang bote na lamang ng beer na kung araw-araw ay iinumin, lumalabas na di bababa sa P700 kada buwan ang nababawas sa regular na panggastos ng isang mag-anak

   Katumbas na ito ng halos ay kalahating kaban ng magandang uri ng bigas na tig-P1,500 ang isang sako. Mantakin mo, iniihi lamang ang naturang halaga ng isang lasenggo na sa araw-araw ay umiinom ng isang boteng beer? Ano pa’t lalabis sa isang bote ang tinitira nito?

   Sa pisikal namang aspeto, mas malapit sa sakit ang isang manginginom. Diabetes, tubercolusis, lung cancer, paralysis, hypertension, prostate deformities at kung anu-ano pang mga sakit na deadly ang hatid nito.

   Pati na ugali ng isang mahilig uminom ay apektado rin ng madalas na paglulunoy sa alak ng kanilang mga kalamnan. Bihira sa mga manginginom ang may magandang pananaw sa buhay, displinado, banayad mangusap, may balanseng pagsusuri sa mga nagaganap at kaaya-ayang pakikitungo sa kapwa. Karaniwan na sa kanila ang pagiging palasigaw, palamura, palaaway at lagi na ay mga “fault finder” o palahanap ng mga kamalian ng iba.

   Ipinakikita rin sa estadistika na problemado sa buhay, magulo ang pamilya, naghihikahos at may masamang relasyon sa mga kaanak pati na sa miyembro ng komunidad, laging kulang sa pera at walang katiyakanang buhay ng mga palainom.

   Nag-uumpisa sa bote at nagtatapos sa pulutan ang kanilang mga pangarap. Walang natatapos o nagiging kaganapan ang kanilang mga balakin. Bagkus ay puro simula ang lahat, tuloy nauubos ang mga araw, sila’y tumatanda na walang pinagkakatandaan.

   Sa kanilang pananaw, walang masama sa kanilang ginagawa. Maaaring ito ay tutoo sa punto de vista ng mga katulad nilang isinara na ang mga mata, bibig at tainga sa mga  katotohanan ng buhay na tuluyan na silang tinalikuran.

   Hindi na nila naaarok ang tayog ng mga pangarap ng kanilang mga anak. Bulag silang hindi namamalas ang mgapaghihirap ng kanilang mga asawang sa kanilang mga kapabayaan ay siya nang bumabalikat sa lahat ng pananagutan sa kanilang buhay.

   Bingi na rin silang hindi naririnig ang mga pagdaing at pakiusap ng mga anak na hindi na makain ang mga pamumuna ng tao sa mga kahihiyang gawa ng tatay na laging lunod sa alak.

   Sa dalas ng tagay ay hindi namamalayan ng mga ito na isang taon na naman pala ang  nalagas sa kanilang walang kwentang buhay.

   Sa paglipas ng pagkalango, masahol pa sa hang-over ang pait ng katotohanang higit pa sa basag na baso ng bote ang kinahihinatnan ng kanilang pamilya. Sa laki ng gawak na nagawa ng lupit ng pag-inom, gaano man kahusay at pinong karayon, ang punit na nalikha’y hindi na masusulsihan pa, pilitin man! -mbr

BE HONEST! 

Even if others are not... Even if others will not... Even if others cannot!

The habit of honesty comes to those who try to be honest.

Quote of the Day

Quote of the Day

 

"It is easier to Prevent, rather than Find the Cure!"

 

Crime Prevention is classically defined as the recognition, anticipation and appraisal of a crime risk and the initiation of positive measures to reduce or eliminate the crime risk. Simply stated, it is the denial of opportunity for a crime to be committed.


 

Basis: If one tree can produce a million matchsticks, then one matchstick is enough to destroy a million of trees. He who knows how to prevent crime but fails to do so, encourages it. One fundamental measure of civilization is its ability to prevent crime.



 

Crime Prevention is everybody's business, together we can fight and prevent crimes. Let us adopt unity, solidarity and teamwork versus indifference and diversity in the prevention of crime!
