Sen. Marcos says people should not forget sacrifices of cops

27 February 2016

Vice presidential candidate Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” R. Marcos Jr. has called on the people to always remember the sacrifices of the policemen in protecting communities and the nation as a whole.

Marcos made the call today on the sidelines of the 36th Grand Alumni Homecoming of the Philippine National Police Academy celebration held at the Camp Mariano Castañeda, home of the academy, in Silang, Cavite.

“The police…we depend so much for the safety and security of the general public. It is always very important to remember the sacrifices that they made and the bravery and honor that they’ve shown in carrying out their duties,” he said.

Marcos attended the homecoming ceremony as an honorary member of the PNPA “Tagapagbuklod Class of ’89.”

He said his attendance to the activity should not be viewed as politicking, although he admitted that his critics always equate his actions to politics, especially now that he is a candidate in the coming elections.

“Everything I do, since I’m a candidate, they could say it’s politicking. It’s something I do consistently; so it’s not something that I’m doing now only because it’s the campaign period. I come and attend regularly,” he said.
