Trillanes nixes arming Barangay Officials: Senator Antonio Trillanes IV expresses his opposition to the proposed arming of barangay officials to bolster law enforcement efforts during the Kapihan sa Senado media forum, Thursday, June 28, 2018. Trillanes said that such a move would only promote a “culture of violence and death,” rather than improve the country’s fight against criminality. “The President himself said that 40 percent of barangay officials are involved in drugs, and now you would give them guns?” he said.
