Q.) HOW DO WE PRAISE GOD WHEN WORSHIPING HIM?

A.) ONE WAY OF PRAISING GOD IS, “O CLAP YOUR HANDS, ALL YE PEOPLE; SHOUT UNTO GOD WITH THE VOICE OF TRIUMPH.” (Psalm47: 1) Email: jayfeliciano2@yahoo.com

IT was three years ago that an unfortunate incident occurred to her, right next the then ZCPO premises as she went to our old public market to do her marketing chores, especially so, they had their relatives from Luzon visiting them that year.

“Sir, Jun, I was so dismayed to find out when I immediately complained to our police at the back of our old public market. Instead of encouraging me to file my complaint as I just lost my over P1,000 intended for marketing that day, you know what he said? ‘Huwag na lang ma'am mag-complaint. Useless lang iyong complaint ninyo, kasi pag-mahuli namin yang mga minors na iyan, magpasilayas lang iyan sila siempre ng ating social welfare.'”

The housewife now working at the City Hall, said since that time up to now, she no longer has faith in our police. “How can you put your trust on them when instead of helping us recover our stolen money, they even discourage us to no longer file our complaint? And, one thing that awfully struck me, it came from them (police) that they knew who stole my money, those roaming minors, for sure, that we see on our major streets. Why can’t they exert their efforts to find those minors and order their policemen in securing our market to arrest them? That was indeed a painful experience, sir,” she lamented.

She said she heard on last Monday’s CH press-con, and that she fully agreed that cases of robbery and theft incidents are no wonder increasing up these days, because she believes people like her, have experienced the same sad tale when bringing their complaints to our police for help.

In last Monday’s weekly CH press briefing, ZCPO spokesperson S/Insp. Shelamie Chang appeared stunned when this corner came up with a query about reports that cases of robbery, theft and their other similar petty crimes, like snatchings, pickpockets, etc., are rampant nowadays. Most of the victims are said to have apparently fallen prey to these con-artists, like the so-called 'dayaws' having their heyday every time they invade by groups cities and towns celebrating their fiesta day, just like what we’re into right now-- so much in festive mood, as we’re in merrymaking amid our city’s ongoing annual Zamboanga Hermosa Festival to cap on its biggest feast day that la bella celebrates in solemn ways every October 12 of the year—in honor of its patroness saint, our “Lady of Pillar.”

Captain Chang promised to provide the local media with our local PNP’s current crime statistics, involving loss of properties due to all these unsavory cases of theft and robbery incidents—to include snatchings, pickpockets and their other petty crimes.

“We’ll provide you our (latest) statistics by our next (CH weekly) press briefing,” the lady police spokesperson pledged.

Good, Capt. Chang, you’re one policewoman whom I have my high regards, so, please don’t fail. Thanks, guys, if my piece for today’s Pencing, appears wanting for more. You know what’s everybody’s predicament up to now. Power-less! Until, perhaps, Zamcelco’s IMC will eventually be put to work by its winning bidder, Crown Holdings. (By Jun Feliciano) (30)
