Violent Street Gangs and Frats

Bagong Henerasyon Party-list
Chair, Committee on Public Information


I congratulate both Eduardo Año and Martin Diño on their appointments to the leadership of the DILG and I take this opportunity to ask them to, in anticipation of the passage of the new Anti-Hazing Law, to prepare the implementing mechanisms for the strict monitoring and enforcement of the current and imminent new law at the LGU level, especially in the barangays.

If they choose to, they could actually implement administrative measures using their current powers. TV news and viral videos of street gangs rampaging on city streets have been recent cause for alarm aside from the hazing in fraternities involving college students.  

Out-of-school youth and students in junior high school and senior high school are especially prone to invites from frats and gangs.

Barangay and school principals must work together and apply their child protection policies effectively and pro-actively. They must be on the alert against frats and gangs that get involved in illegal drugs or resort to hold-ups of taxis and jeepneys as initiation rites for neophytes.

Neighborhood frats and gangs can also be used by organized crime engaged in human trafficking, illegal drugs, and prostitution of children and teenagers.

Crime syndicates are well aware of the minimum age of criminal responsibility stated in the Juvenile Justice and Welfare Act of 2006. The link between neighborhood frats and gangs and juvenile crime is a clear and present danger to our communities.

Effective implementation of the imminent Anti-Hazing Law will be another way for government to reduce crime in our, schools, streets and near our homes. (END)
