Police chief aims for top job
– The Philippines’ top police chief, who oversaw a bloody war on drugs that has killed thousands, hinted yesterday at a possible run for the presidency.
Ronald dela Rosa, a celebrity-like general nicknamed “Bato” (Rock), has said he was open to running for the Senate. But in a speech at police headquarters, he hinted at higher political goals. “Wait for Bato to become president and I will quadruple your salaries,” he said.
