90% of our cops can’t shoot

The National Police Commission has announced that 90% of our Philippine National Police cannot shoot straight, and do not even know how to maintain their guns.


And that isn’t really surprising, since 90% of our encounters with the police does not involve running gun battles and bitter house-to-house fighting.

I mean, it’s pretty unrealistic for us to expect them to be expert marksmen when they’re already busy being assholes, extorting grease money from people, and acting like they own the road. Getting in some shooting time at the range is close to impossible with the schedules they keep.

"I simply can't..."

"I simply can't..."

And it isn’t just the schedule, either. We are a cash-strapped nation, and the PNP has to set its priorities. If we spent our money on training rounds, we’d never get any junketing done.


  1. I’m actually far more uneasy when I’m near policemen than street thugs. And I’m no law-breaker.

    Not only do they usually break the law first (traffic laws especially), they also are incompetence incarnate!

  2. Come to think of it, it is also safe to say that 90% of our policemen are poor.

    Well the government really has to address this problem.

    Our low-ranked law enforcers get nothing but crap.

    Thus, they LIVE TOGETHER WITH the dregs of society. Many of them are assholes. Many of them are stupid.

    So for them, they’d rather extort than let their families get hungry.

    Well, once A FEW OF THEM (from thousands) get to the high offices, that is the only time they’d get their own snazzy Pajeros with the matching wang-wangs. While doing some insider favors for big time businessmen and politicians.

    Trust me, that is how they get rich (and even get the post from all kinds of offices even if they’re stupid). Through por favor.

  3. Our cops’ incompetence at shooting actually makes me feel somewhat safer. Now I know that it’s at least theoretically possible to run away without getting shot if I ever get into trouble with them. Theoretically.

  4. Not entirely true: They can SHOOT THEIR MOUTHS
    THS OFF that’s for sure. FYI, In case you all get violated by criminals, don’t seek help from the cops because they don’t value the lives of ordinary citizens. My good friend (a queer one but decent) was mangled inside his apartment’s bathroom, teh cops were too lazy to respond, let alone investigate.
