NPD chief says Kian Loyd ‘politicized:’ Dati kilalang pusher, nung namatay santo na

The director of the Northern Police District (NPD) has disputed reports that 17-year-old Kian Loyd Delos Santos, who was killed in an anti-drug operation in Caloocan City last week.

Chief Superintendent Roberto Fajardo said Delos Santos’ reputation has drastically changed since he died.

“Sa area kilala siya, ang tawag nga sa kanya ng mga tao doon is adik, pusher, ngayon napatay na siya mabait na siya. Lumalabas na sinasakyan na mabait na siya at santo na siya. Pero before that lumalabas na siga, adik, at pusher doon sa area,” Fajardo said in a press conference at Camp Crame Monday (August 21).

“‘Yun ang sinasabi ng mga kapitbahay nila. Unfortunately, na-politicize na mabait na siya ngayon,” he added.

Members of the Caloocan City police claimed Delos Santos shot at them while trying to escape during anti-drug operations on August 16 but surveillance footage and eyewitness accounts show otherwise.

Delos Santos’ relatives and neighbors have attested to his good character, saying he was a studious teenager who was never involved in illegal drugs.

But Fajardo claimed they received intelligence information that Delos Santos was acting as a drug runner. The Caloocan City police has presented a witness who said he had transactions with the teenager.

    So the NP already have a word that this kid is a runner, pusher? And they have one witness who said he is his pusher. Another drug addict who could be manipulated to tell the story and tell the media that this kid is no saint. Sir, saint or devil, he should be able to have the chance to defend himself in the court of law. What is law and order if you as a police officers are violating the people’s right for a fair trial. How can this dead kid defend himself according to this addict that you are presenting. So he is a runner for Kian, is he in jail? Why is wigman placing him under WPP? He should be in jail. He is protected in jail. No one can get him inside, unless you all don’t trust anyone and he could be like Mayor Espinoza in the making. Your story sounds so pathetic. If you or the barangays knew this kid is running the show, he should have been picked and questioned in the Barangay hall. Why go to that extent of gunning him down. Mind you that his injury were all in the head. Looks like a target shooting to me. You all have a crooked police. No wonder the police job is very popular. From kotong, to suhol, to drug protectors, everyone is making good money. Have they put all these police in lifestyle setting. How many of them can afford a good house, a good car, and a private school they children can go to, considering their legitimate salary. My opinion.
