Stupid De Lima Senate bill wants criminals to be warned before arrest ~Share

This is the stupidest proposal I have ever heard! Senator Leila de Lima's Senate Bill 1197, or the “Anti-Extrajudicial Killing of 2016,” proposes that a megaphone be used by the police to warn crime suspects before they are arrested in operations.

In conducting arrest, the police should issue a warning by announcing the same through a megaphone, the bill stipulates.

“Firing of warning shots is absolutely prohibited,” the bill said.

“Necessity of force test” should be the principal rule in police intervention operations or PIOs.

“Use of force when employed shall be proportionate, and shall be allowed only when there is clear and convincing attempt to evade arrest,” the bill said.

“Alternative non-lethal incapacitating weapons,” it said, would be the primary tool to effect arrest when there is resistance.

The penalty of life imprisonment without the benefit of parole would be imposed against public officers, persons in authority, agents of a person in authority, or private individuals found guilty of extrajudicial killing as defined in the bill.

Public officials, who would fail to prevent, investigate, or file necessary actions in court against those suspected of having committed an extrajudicial killing would also be administratively held liable.

What will be the consequence if this law is passed? Police officers won't do their jobs for fear of making a mistake.

  1. This is actually in the police manual. They are required to do this because police in the past have been guilty of abuse of authority.
