Personnel of Philippine National Police have crossed the line again in terms of abuse of power when some authorities aggrieved a civilian in Catbalogan City, Samar yesterday.
A certain Jomasi Daylo posted a video on Facebook showing how the policemen spanked the victim, identified as Jerry Gaviola Rosal, on top of his head using their guns in a disco bar near Pier One at around 2:40am, January 7.
On the said social media post, Daylo explained that Rosal just asked the police to stop harassing two waiters who refused to take their orders because the bar was about to close.
Daylo also said that the victim reported the incident and filed a blotter. However, no further action was taken.
Hence, the party decided to bring the attention to Bantay Probinsya – DYMS Public Service Program. The video was posted to their Facebook official page.
DYMS Aksyon Radyo has aired their sentiments and called the attention of higher authorities through social media to take legal action on the matter.
The post has received several feedbacks from netizens, mostly asking for the removal from service of the involved authorities.
It is unclear yet how the incident will move forward but this is certainly a disgrace to the agency and authorities involved that needs an immediate solution.
