Enchong Dee contradicted Sen. Bato dela Rosa’s defense of the Philippine National Police (PNP) in relation to the build-up of impunity culture among cops.
In the heat of the Paniqui shooting incident, Enchong Dee recently retweeted ABS-CBN News’ compilation of articles about the instances when Pres. Rodrigo Duterte was recorded giving orders to the Philippine National Police officers in relation to killing when the need arises.
The tweet goes:
“Nobody said "kill, kill, kill," claims Sen. Ronald dela Rosa to defend PNP from criticisms that there's a culture of impunity within the force following the killing of Sonia and Anton Gregorio in Tarlac. Below are some of President Duterte's earlier messages to police, military:”
It is followed by several statements directly quoted from the president on different occasions.
"I will protect you. I will not allow one policeman or one military to go to jail."
“My orders are sa pulis pati military... na pagka ginulo at nagkaroon ng okasyon na lumaban at ang buhay ninyo ay nalagay sa alanganin, shoot them dead. Naintindihan ninyo? Patay."
"Look, it can never be a crime to say that 'I will kill you if you destroy my country'."
Enchong, who is known to be one of the current administration’s celebrity critics, composed a message supporting the series of tweets.
“Someone’s living under a bato just chillin at “sarap ng buhay” ... you can scroll down for all the Kill comments of your commander in chief. Fact-checking is so easy and common sense (emojis)”
This is a counterstatement to Sen. Dela Rosa’ claim that nobody in the PNP is supporting impunity and telling its officers to kill without justifiable causes.
Sen. Dela Rosa statement was:
“Sabi mo na culture of impunity? Tell me kung sino. From the President down to the lowest level of command, sino bang nagsasabi na patayin, patayin, patayin? Wala naming nagsasabi.”
Enchong Dee is one of the Kapamilya celebrities who are vocal about their support for their home network, ABS-CBN, in its fight to have a renewed franchise. The actor has starred in several television series, including “Katorse”, “Muling Buksan ang Puso”, and “Maria la del Barrio”.
In the light of many Kapamilya celebrities choosing to work with other stations, Enchong said that he understands them. He is also active in the vlogging community, and recently, he featured Sen. Risa Hontiveros in one of his vlogs.
