That the military will soon dismiss an erring soldier recently freed by NPAs held after some time in captivity by the group, because of links to illegal drugs, is but appropriate. In Bacolod, 3 policemen are also being investigated for allegedly receiving bribes from local drug financiers.
Their discharge soon from military and police service after having been proven guilty of the charges, serves as a lesson to those who will be tempted to engage in illegal activities. Soldiers and police took their oath as public servants and committed themselves to their role as legal authorities in society. Their task is to do good at all times.
It is no reason for these men to say they have financial difficulties hence forced to engage in such activities. But the word forced, if coming from them is unreasonable for they are the ones who control themselves and have no one to blame but their own selves.
The military and police organization must be swift in handling these cases to avoid doubts of whitewash and coddling of members. These soldiers and policemen who are guilty of a wrongdoing do not deserve a place in public service. Their places are in jail and they must serve their sentence for doing crimes while wearing their uniforms. Such a waste.
