Former Bayan Muna Rep. Teddy Casiño sarcastically thanked Philippine National Police chief Director General Ronald dela Rosa for the “peace and order” that the Filipinos, and even drug war critics” are enjoying now.

Casiño’s remarks came after dela Rosa after he called the critics of the government’s campaign against drugs as “ingrates” for not criticizing them despite benefiting from the peace and order brought about by the drug war.

However, the former lawmaker pointed out the contrasts in how he and his family felt now compared to the past to point out just how “safe” they felt under the bloody campaign against illegal drugs.

“NOON, pag naglalakad ako sa gabi, palinga-linga ako at nag-aatubili dahil baka may humablot ng celfone o pitaka ko, o may kumursonadang tambay na lasing, maton o adik,” he said.

“NGAYON, mas inaalala ko na baka may riding in tandem na bumaril sa akin o madamay ako sa kanilang barilan,” he contrasted.

Casiño emphasized just how he used to let his children play outside or roam around with friends, as opposed to the curfews and limitations they now impose to keep the children off the streets when nighttime comes.

“NOON, pinababayaan ko lang ang mga anak kong lumaboy sa kalye at gumimik kasama ang mga barkada nila,” he wrote.

“NGAYON, pagkagat ng dilim dapat nasa loob na sila ng bahay. Hindi pwedeng lumabas ng nag-iisa. Ipinagbawal na rin namin silang kumain ng tapsi sa kanto kasi baka makalawit ng mga pulis, mabaril o madamay sa barilan,” he added.

He also contrasted how he used to feel whenever he sees a cop then and now.

“NOON, pag nakakita ako ng pulis, naaalala ko ang yumao kong lolo na isang pulis Maynila. Oo, marangal na pulis ang lolo ko,” Casiño said.


“NGAYON, pag nakakita ako ng pulis, lalo ko pang naaalala ang aking lolo. Yung kaisa-isang beses na ginamit niya ang kanyang baril ay nung may manlaban at sumugod sa kaniya na may patalim. Binaril ng lolo ko yung tao sa hita ng isang beses at inaresto ng buhay. Buhay, hindi patay,” he continued.

The former lawmaker even opened up to how his eldest child suggested the idea of moving abroad because the Philippines is no longer safe.

“Sabi ng panganay ko, sa halip na pag-ipunan namin na magkasariling bahay kami, bakit hindi na lang daw para kami’y mangibang bayan, kasi hindi na safe dito. Dahil sa iyo, Bato, napag-isip ang anak ko ng kung ano ang mas maganda para sa aming kinabukasan,” Casiño said.

“Kaya tenk yu ulit, Bato. Mas ligtas at mapayapa na ang mga kalye ngayon. Mas duguan, pero mapayapa. Mas nakakatakot, pero ligtas. It’s really super safe and peaceful out there,” he added.
