View Full Version : Pulupandan Mayor ambushed
the newly elected mayor of pulupandan of negros occidental magdaleno pena was ambushed by 6 fully armed people inside the town which is only 1.5km away from the nearest police station at around 4:45pm may 30,2007. he, his councillor and 2 of his police escort survived the attacked but two of his bodyguard died on the first salvo.
they were in a 3 car convoy when the ambushed happened.
I will try to asked around how they were able to survived the attacked, their mindset seconds before the attack and their counter measure.
walang blocking force. i think he didnt expected ma ambush sa town mismo. malapit lng yung pulis sa pinangyarihan. i predict bukas reliv na hepe nyan. hehe pag tingnan yung pinangyarihan, malapitan yung exchange of fire. dami yun putok. at nakapagtataka ganun yung daming putok wla man lng nasugatan sa mga bahay. walang mga tao kasi, obvious ba? so ano implication? buti nalang survive ung mayor elect. btw 8 ata nag ambush. kilala nya isa at symphatitic ang mga tao sa lugar na yon sa kalaban nya sa pulitika. isa lng naman yung response ng mayor elect atty. magsi after the ambush he said "it's show time!" pag nasugatan yung beast, bumabangis. abangan susunod na kabanata.... may laban pa ba PBB nito? wala hehe
IMHO,it's all about route security. If it's a deliberate ambush then it means that the attackers knew that the convoy will pass at that particular time and area.. Deny the enemy that information..Move randomly so that the person casing you will have a very hard time getting your "pattern"...
As the group of Armed men went down from the van.
Upon sensing the ambusher,the councilor and the mayor the 1st vehicle broke thru the kill zone by pressing on the gas.5 - 7 meters was the estimated distance between the 1st target vehicles and the ambusher The concerntration of shots was mostly directed at the front passenger seat. upon passing thru the kill zone, the ambusher followed up hitting the rear windows and hitting the back seat.
The second vehicle stop with the 3 escort armed with .45 cal pistol engaged the ambusher. The 3rd vehicle with the two police escort one armed with an M16 rifle and a shot gun assisted the second vehicle...
