NPD chief Fajardo: Kian, kilalang siga, adik at pusher sa kanilang lugar "BIGLANG SANTO MATAPOS MAHALUAN NG PULITIKA"

Northern Police District Chief Superintendent Roberto Fajardo says Kian Loyd delos Santos was known as an 'addict' and a 'pusher' in his neighborhood but has been politicized, making him appear more innocent than he actually is.

"Sa area kilala siya, ang tawag nga sa kanya ng mga tao doon [ay] 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.

(People used to call him an addict and a pusher, but now that he is dead, he is now being described as kind. People are riding on this, that he was kind and practically a saint. But before that, it seemed he was an addict and a pusher.)

Ayon pa kay Fajardo na mula sa pagiging drug runner ay nabago raw ang imahe ng binatilyo bilang mabait matapos na mahaluan ng pulitika ang pagkakapatay nito sa operasyon kontra-droga sa Caloocan noong nakaraang linggo.

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

"'Yung Neneng ang nag-uutos, siya ang ginagamit na courier. Dapat alam ng father," the NPD chief said. (Neneng was the one giving instructions to Delos Santos and using him as a runner. The boy's father should have known this.)
Fajardo added that, if Delos Santos really had been a drug runner, he would not be the first, as police have previously dealt with drug pushers using minors to get their fix.
Different focus for probe
Despite these accusations, Metro Manila police chief Director Oscar Albayalde reiterated in the news briefing that they are focusing on whether Delos Santos was actually a victim of an extrajudicial killing, not whether he was a drug runner for his own family.

The cops involved in Delos Santos' killing have since been placed under restrictive custody, barring them from leaving Camp Bagong Diwa in Taguig City.
According to Philippine National Police (PNP) spokesperson Senior Superintendent Dionardo Carlos, the cops will be transferred "within the week" to Camp Crame in Quezon City, under criminal investigation by the PNP Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG).

Complementing the CIDG probe is the investigation by the PNP Internal Affairs Service (IAS), which looks into administrative violations.
Outside the PNP, the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) and the Commission on Human Rights (CHR)have begun their independent probes.
Even senators allied with President Rodrigo Duterte have called for an inquiry into the police's recent bloody operations in the President's unrelenting war on drugs, including the raid that killed Delos Santos.
