Quezon City Police District Director Guilermo Eleazar admits not all policemen understood the distinction between the Lower Barrel and the Upper Barrel of PNP’s Oplan Double Barrel, so much so that the term “Tokhang,” has been used “jokingly" to mean “getting killed." “When one is arrested, they say na-Tokhang. When something [bad happens], they say that’s Tokhang. When one threatens, he would say, 'Tokhang-in kita diyan. This is wrong. Tokhang has a very good intention,” Eleazar said.
With the relaunch of Tokhang, Eleazar said, the distinction will be clearer because a separate team has been created solely for the "knock and plead” operations: the Tokhangers. #tokhang #tokhangers #police #warondrugs #oplandoublebarrel #philippines
