Reporter’s Notebook tonight

Tonight, Reporter’s Notebook studies the onerous projects of the Philippine National Police for which billions of pesos are allotted. For 2008, almost P100 million pesos is budgeted in the acquisition of M16 rifles and assault weapons.

But the program seems to be going nowhere. Critics claim the project is anomalous and did not go through public bidding. Maki Pulido inquires whether or not there are concrete and substantial improvements in the PNP given the alleged irregularities in its projects.

Meanwhile, Jiggy Manicad exposes how children, aged nine to 11, are being abused in illegal street fighting. In exchange for a measly amount, the kids get injured in street fighting.

Despite being young, the children are alluded to as young gladiators in front of an audience who bet on them.

This violent form of entertainment does not seem to be a simple backyard fight club. Whistleblowers claim that organizers behind the games are powerful people.
How has this underground battle evaded the authorities? Find out more of these stories in Reporter’s Notebook tonight after “Saksi” on GMA-7.
