s if the Philippine National Police don’t already have enough problems with corruption within it’s ranks. Having it’s members implacated in bank robberies, and living out of the pockets of the nations gambling syndicates.
Now we learn their “crack” SWAT Team takes target practice at the Hellen Keller shooting range:
Three Navotas policemen opened fire on a van they had mistaken for a getaway vehicle of robbers in Caloocan City early yesterday, narrowly missing the driver and 10 passengers.
Police said the Toyota Tamaraw FX van, with license plates TNW-177, was apparently mistaken by Navotas Police Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) operatives as a getaway vehicle of four armed men who had earlier robbed a bakery in Dagat-Dagatan, Caloocan City, just over a kilometer from where the shooting occurred.
None of the passengers, among them a six-year-old girl, were reported injured. But their vehicle was riddled with bullet holes and one of its windows was shattered. The family was reportedly heading for a fiesta in San Pablo City in Laguna.
The bakery robbers are still at large, no indication was given of how much dough they fled with.
Sorry, that was too easy 🙂 But closer to the target than the SWAT Team.
