PNP chief to cops: Make ‘proper judgment calls’ in line of duty

first_imgMANILA – Philippine National Police (PNP)chief General Archie Gamboa reminded policemen to exercise “proper judgmentcalls” when confronted by challenging situations in enforcing quarantine laws. Gamboa’s reminders came after the deathof a retired soldier who was shot dead by policemen manning a checkpoint inQuezon City Tuesday afternoon. According to Gamboa in an interview with CNN Philippines’ The Source, Police Master Sergeant Daniel Florendo was forced to fire on retired soldier Winston Ragos when the latter allegedly drew a gun following a heated argument. “According sa report, he tried to draw his firearm. That’s why it resorted to the decision, which was really a judgment call on the part of Florendo on what to do at that very moment,” Gamboa said. In another interview, Gamboa said due to previous incidents in which policemen were confronted with armed suspects, he had instructed the police not to give suspects a chance to hurt them in any way. “When you are confronted with a person armed with a pistol, it’s equivalent is also a pistol,” Gamboa said in an interview with ABS CBN News Channel. “Marami na rin kasing namatay na pulis ang instruction ko talaga ay huwag kayong magpauna.” “Nasa tao talaga ang pag-decide. Mabuti sana kung wala kaming experience na we’re confronted with an armed [suspect] tapos palagi kaming nanalo… there are a lot of circumstances kasi na talagang pag hindi mo inunahan, talagang madadali ka,” he added. On April 21, police said Florendo and some police trainees from the Philippine National Police-Highway Patrol Group were manning a control point in Maligaya Drive when Ragos arrived and shouted at them. The policemen advised Ragos to go home but the latter refused. center_img Despite repeated warnings, the suspectsupposedly tried to draw his weapon, prompting Florendo to shoot him.The incident sparked rage on social media as Ragos was said to have sufferedfrom post-traumatic disorder after completing his tour of duty during theMarawi siege in 2017.Gamboa, however, said that he will leave it up to officials to conduct a “thorough”investigation on the facts of the case as an administrative probe on Florendois already underway, reiterating that complaints will be filed shouldauthorities find loopholes./PNlast_img read more

Moyes disciplines Smalling

first_img Moyes is not happy with the 24-year-old’s conduct, although he refused to reveal the punishment he had handed out to the player. “I’ve dealt with it and I’ve spoken to Chris,” the United boss said in a press conference. “That would be as much as I would want to say on it.” This is not the first time the England international has found himself at the centre of controversy. The former Fulham defender was pictured appearing to dress up as a suicide bomber for a private party in January. Smalling later apologised for the “ill-thought” and “insensitive” decision to wear the costume, which consisted of a vest, a mock circuit board, empty bottles of Jagermeister and cans of Red Bull. The two drinks combined make up the popular ‘Jagerbomb’ drink. The Manchester Evening News published pictures of Smalling which it claimed shows the England international apparently singing in the streets at 3:15am on Saturday morning. Smalling had stayed in the north-west while the rest of his team-mates travelled to London for their Saturday evening clash against West Ham because of a hamstring injury.

Majka wins as Froome holds lead

first_img Majka, the Polish rider who won two stages of the 2014 Tour as well as the King of the Mountains title, soloed to victory on the 188-kilometre route from Pau, with Birmingham-born Irishman Dan Martin (Cannondale-Garmin) second, one minute behind. Emanuel Buchmann (Bora-Argon) was third and Froome (Team Sky) rolled in 5mins 21secs behind Majka in ninth place as part of an elite group. The tempo set by the defending champion’s squad strung out the bunch as up ahead Majka attacked. Majka led Serge Pauwels (MTN-Qhubeka) over the summit of the 17.1km climb. The descent had more obstacles than usual as the free grazing cattle crossed the road, Warren Barguil (Giant-Alpecin) just missing one cow as it stepped out. Froome’s group was around six minutes adrift of Majka, who had to maintain his advantage over Pauwels and negotiate the category three Cote de Cauterets and the final 3km to claim a third Tour stage win in two years. Martin overtook Pauwels on the lower slopes of the finishing ascent, but left himself too much to do as Majka took victory. Team Sky allowed others to break clear of the Froome group, but none are realistic contenders and the 30-year-old leader was content to coast in, another stage completed. Ten remain en route to Paris on July 26. Rafal Majka won stage 11 of the Tour de France to Cauterets as Chris Froome defended his considerable advantage in the yellow jersey. The bunch included the main protagonists, so Tejay van Garderen (BMC Racing) remained 2:52 behind in second place overall and Nairo Quintana (Movistar) third, 3:09 adrift. Geraint Thomas (Team Sky) stayed fifth, 4:03 back, and Alberto Contador (Tinkoff-Saxo) 4:04 behind in sixth. Defending champion Vincenzo Nibali (Astana) began the day 6:57 adrift and lost further time, finishing 50secs behind Froome to fall almost eight minutes adrift. His hopes of a successful title defence are apparently over. Thursday’s stage 12 is the 195km from Lannemezan to Plateau de Beille and is the final Pyrenees stage of the race. On Friday the peloton begin the traverse east towards the Alps with the route from Muret to Rodez, a stage Lance Armstrong will ride as part of Le Tour-One Day Ahead on Thursday alongside Geoff Thomas, the former England footballer who is hoping to raise £1million for Cure Leukaemia. Martin broke clear of the peloton to join the day’s early seven-man breakaway, which included Majka. The eight-rider group had a large advantage atop the Col d’Aspin, the fourth of the day’s six categorised climbs. The punishing ascent of the hors categorie (beyond category) Col du Tourmalet splintered the breakaway as behind them Nibali’s Astana squad led the peloton. Press Associationlast_img read more

Cricket News BCCI President Sourav Ganguly’s Big Quote On MS Dhoni’s Future: Champions Don’t Finish Very Quickly

first_imgNew Delhi: Sourav Ganguly was officially appointed as the 39th president of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) at the Annual General Meeting in Mumbai on Wednesday. However, the former India captain has given a big statement on the future of MS Dhoni. There has been plenty of speculations about Dhoni and his Indian cricket team future after he opted for a two-month sabbatical following India’s exit in the 2019 World Cup semi-final against New Zealand. Since then, Dhoni was not considered for selection in the West Indies, South Africa and Bangladesh series. Speaking in the press conference after the end of the Annual General Meeting, Ganguly said, “Champions don’t finish very quickly. Till I am around, everybody will be respected.” These words indicate that Dhoni might not be unceremoniously dumped and that his future might be safe with the Indian cricket team for at least the near future. Recently, Dhoni had spoken up about his feelings in his first interaction on the sidelines of a promotional event. The former India skipper had said, “I am like everyone else but I control my emotions better than some of the other individuals. I would say, I feel equally frustrated. I also feel angry at times, disappointed. But what is important is that none of these feelings are constructive. What needs to be done right now is more important than any of these emotions. What is the next thing I can plan? Who is the next individual, whom I can use? Once I get into it, I am controlling my emotions in a much better way,” Dhoni said. Also Read | Sourav Ganguly’s First Reaction On Dhoni’s Retirement After Taking Over As BCCI ChiefPrior to being appointed as the BCCI chief, Ganguly had outlined that he planned to speak to Dhoni, the selectors and Kohli on what is the way forward regarding team selection and dynamics. “Let’s see what Dhoni wants. I will find out from the selectors when I meet them on 24th. I will find out what the selectors are thinking. Then I will put my opinion,” Ganguly had said last week.
