OPLAN Sita is an anti-crime operation being conducted from time to time unannounced by the Philippine National Police.
This is in line with its task in keeping peace and order elsewhere, anywhere, wherever in the whole Philippine archipelago.
That’s nice and commendable.
And closer to home, the Lipa City PNP conducted its own Oplan Sita ops in select barangays.
“Ito’y isang hakbang ng PNP-Lipa sa pakikipag-tulungan ng LGU to maintain peace and order for the safety of Lipeño people.”
For sure, it’s one and the same line other police stations would readily say why the conduct of Oplan Sita that are usually unannounced.
But no matter. Whatever.
Not all motorists are happy with the way OS is being conducted by the police.
Selective, actually, is the right word to call it.
One Tatin Garcia of Lipa has a good point splattered on his post below a photo post by Lipa City PNP.
Thus: “tanong lang po bakit po mga motor lang po ang laging pinapara sa mga Oplan Sita? Sila lang po ba nakakasira ng peace and order?,” Exactly.
“Paano po kung matulad dun sa viral video sa Manila na nanakit yung babae and it found out po na dealer ng drugs eh naka Fortuner siya? Kung hindi nagka-violation hindi malalaman..
Nagtatanong lang po.. at madaming rider na din po ang nagtatanong na "bakit kami lang lagi ang pinapara?"..Salamat po...”
I hope Chief PNP Guillermo Eleazar has an honest answer to this.
Our unsolicited advice to this is, Oplan Sita, be it here in Batangas or elsewhere, should include flagging down people on four-wheel rides.
Malay, n’yo nga naman makatimbog kayo ng kadrugahan at mga sako-sakong armas lalo’t malapit na ang election.
Suggestion lang po.
