Salus Populi Est Suprema Lex.

Madaming nangyari sa akin nitong nakaraan pero ang pinakamalala ay ang panghoholdap sa amin (Kasama ko mga kachoir ko) sa loob ng jeep sa tulay bago Sta. Cruz at Lawton. Di ko na masyado idedetail kung ano ang nawala sa akin, kung magkano at ano ang laman ng bag namin pero ang post na ito ay more sa mga pulis at modus operandi na naganap.

Modus Operandi.

Sumakay kami sa UN Avenue ng jeep na Baclaran-Blumentritt ng mga 10pm, anim kaming magkakachoir na sumakay ng jeep. Diba sabi nga nila na sa large groups ay mas safe? (Papaslangin ko na nagsabi non, LOLJK)

Ang nangyari kasi, yung apat na holdaper na yun ay nanggaling sa iba’t ibang lugar. Plinano nila ang krimen ng mabuti. Galing yung isa sa Pedro Gil, yung isa sa Buendia at hiwahiwalay sila. Nagulat na lang kami na nang nasa gitna kami ng tulay ay pumara sila at nagsabi na… HOLDAP TO! Akala ko nung time na yun ay WOW MALI lang ang nagaganap. Pero hindi. Realidad to. 4 minutes lang nila inexecute ang krimen. Tinutukan nila kami ng Ice Pick na alam mong kinakalawang na. So the best thing to do since limited ang space sa jeep ay i-surrender ang bag. Yes guys, buong bag ang kinuha nila. Mapa may laman or wala. After all, ang importante ay buhay ka dahil once na masaksak ka non ay malay mo matetano ka pa at mas mahal ang babayaran mo sa hospital or worse, ikamatay mo yun.

Pulis.

Sa mga outposts sa Sta. Cruz at Lawton, iisa lang po ang pulis na nasa istasyon both Sta. Cruz at Lawton. Apat ang nang holdap sa amin, so anong magagawa ng isang pulis na makupad kumilos at akala mo ay galing sa tulog. WALA.

Nakakaasar kasi yung fact na dineclare na nilang di na namin makukuha ang mga bags namin agad. Ok lang kasi alam namin na nakalayo na yung suspects pero ang pangit dito ay nung nasa stasyon na kami. May isang clear book na naglalaman ng pictures at hanapin daw namin doon. Napoint out namin yung mga magnanakaw. Pero guess what? Picture lang ang meron, ni pangalan, ni record ng dating krimen na ginawa nila ay wala.

Tinanong ko kung bat wala silang record o pangalan ng mga suspects. Madami daw kasi silang nahuhuli kaya di na daw nila narerecord minsan. Diba dapat parang SOP na nila yun? Pano kung araw araw nanghoholdap yung tao, edi hahayaan lang nila ganon? Ibig ba nilang sabihin ay madami ang populasyon ng holdaper sa Pilipinas ganon? Sinabi nya pa na OUTPOST lang daw yun. Naisip ko naman nung time na yun, ano ang silbi ng outpost? Tambayan ng pulis? Paradahan ng motor nila? Wala daw silang records dahil hindi naman daw sila IMBESTIGADOR. WTF? Kahit name lang o location ng suspek di nila maibigay? Kelangan bang maging imbestigador ka para magkaroon ng records? Para at least may lead or kung ano man? At isa sa mga napansin ko ay walang silbi ang mga walkie talkie nila. Useless talaga. As in, kala mo decorations lang.

Ang mga nangholdap sa amin ay nangholdap nadin dati. Alam ng pulis yun. Pero parang hinayaan lang nila yung krimen na naganap at ramdam mo na walang aksyon talaga pagkatapos naming magpablotter. Tapos sasabihin nila sa TV na 0% ang crime rate noong sunday BULLSHIT. Sabagay, di naman lahat ng balita sa TV ay totoo. Pero di pa din ako nawawalan ng pagasa na balang araw aayos din ang police force natin at tayo ay magiging safe.

Salus Populi Est Suprema Lex, the Safety of the People is the Supreme Law. Ano nang nangyari? Inakyat namin sa City Hall ang kaso namin na ito. At ngayon ay pinopost ko for awareness. Kaya sa mga kaibigan ko dito, ingat kayo. Kung di nila tayo kayang proteksyonan, tayo na lang sa sarili ang mas mag-ingat.

1. In one word, what is love for you? 

-Love(the romantic one) is cyclic. It goes in circles. You meet someone, you get to know the person, you fall, you enjoy the moment, something happens, you try to make things work, things work, something happens again, you try again, it doesn’t work this time, you fight, you mend things, you fight again, you separate. Then, you meet someone again. But then, it is cyclic in the sense that the people involved are in this circle of give and take, of saying and responding, or messages and feedback. One does something and the other reacts. The action of one will be based on the reaction of another. Whatever will happen to the relationship will depend upon these actions. 

-Love is also unselfish. You do things for the one you love. You make sacrifices for your significant other, for your family, for your friends, for your passion, for your career, even for yourself. That is love. It is powerful enough that it makes you running, it makes you work things out.

2. Who’s the most important person in your life? Why?

-The most important person in my life is my mom. We have been through a lot and I am where I am now because we both work hard together. I love her more than anything. She has been my inspiration. 

3. What was the last book you’ve read? What is it all about?

-I have finished reading Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children just this morning and it has been a nice journey going in and out of loops, fighting hollowgausts and wights, and marveling at the peculiarity of the children in the Bird’s house. The story is about Jacob, a boy whose recently deceased grandfather left him with secrets to unravel, and how he found himself traveling to an island where he would meet children whose capabilities are what he believed to be fictional, far beyond the reality.

4. If you’ll be given a million dollars, where would you spend it on?

-I would probably buy a house and a car for my family, gadgets for the kids at home, and save the rest for education and stuff.

5. Are you proud you’re a Filipino? Why? Why not?

-I am very much proud that I am a Filipino because our country is known for its positive traits, talents that are world-class, and rich resources, traditions, and culture that everybody would love. The thing is, it’s what we Filipinos do that makes the negative stuff more noticeable. Not a race could be perfect, of course, but then, we should live up to the legacy of our past by not ruining our country’s name.

6. What do you most regret in your life?

-There is nothing to regret because everything should be taken as a lesson. However, I wished I studied even more back in college.

7. What kind of person are you?

-I am a jolly-on-one-side-and-dramatic-on-the-other type of person.

8. Who are you afraid more, ghosts or real people? Why?

-I am afraid of ghosts. With real people, you would know what to expect. The paranormal is something I would not rather delve into.

9. How much do you value your life?

-I value my life very much that I live each day at my best. Sure, I could get sad most of the time, but to value life means to live it up instead of worrying and thinking too much about what to come next, so that’s what I would be doing. Value life by living.

10. Money or happiness? Why?

-I would want money because, in this world, obviously, we can’t survive without money. We can be happy with the one we love, but then, we would starve to death anyway. With money, I could give the ones I love the kind of life that they deserve after all our hardships, and for me, seeing the people I love happy is happiness. By choosing money, I might probably hit both birds in a shot.

11. If you know me, then what is your message for me?

-I don’t know much about you, but I am looking forward to knowing you more. Happy blogging!
