How relevant is the Legal Service (LS) to the Philippine National Police (PNP)?
Let me tell you a story that is fast becoming a folk tale. You all heard the story but let me tell it anyway. On August 23, 2010, on an otherwise boring Monday, a dismissed police officer gone berserk held hostage a group of Chinese (or Hongkong?) nationals. Negotiations took place and one thing led to another. At the end of the day, a ragtag PNP SWAT team swooped down on the bus where the hostage taker and the hostages were holed up. Desperate to save the lives of the hostages, the members of the SWAT team bombarded the bus with canisters of tear gas hoping to maim and paralyze the hostage taker, if only momentarily, and catch him by surprise. They had gas masks – or at least most of them had. In their haste and zeal, they never used them. They later on discovered how stinging a tear gas could be.
