A known womanizer and brutal officer, Senior Supt. Danao doesn't deserve his current pedestal in the government.

Danao joked that he would castrated rogue police officers who commit rape as he recall allegations against Police Officer 1 Eduardo Valencia raped a 15-year-old girl in exchange for her parents’ release from drug charges.
