A netizen posted a Facebook video of a heated incident between an authority and a man yesterday, October 1. The altercation took place outside Department of Foreign Affairs in Pasay City in Manila. In the footage, a local authority tried to get a man’s bag with a brute force. In this case, he was very aggressive towards the man and almost teared his bag apart. However, there are no further details about the reason for the two men’s quarrel.
The post included in the caption:
(“Habang pumipila ako sa appointment ko for passport dito sa DFA Pasay, grabe yung security kung maka asta akala mo may baril. Sinaktan nila si kuya na nagbebenta ng envelope sa mga customers dito sa DFA. Maliit na bagay lang pero pinapalaki niyo. Kayo na bahala magpasikat sa kanya.”)
Also, according to the post, the man was a seller of envelopes around the area.
Afterward, the envelope seller said as he walked away:
“Hintayin mo ‘ko sir, hintayin mo ‘ko magsusumbong ako sa pulis.”
Evidently, the local authority seemed to be annoyed as he chased the man and collared his shirt.
Fortunately, another officer cooled down the heated discussion between the two.
Most netizens threw negative comments regarding the local officer’s action toward the poor man. Read some of their sentiments about the incident below.
Unsurprisingly, the viral video made rounds online after posting it just yesterday. It earned nearly two million views thousands of likes, and shares on Facebook.
