Since I went back to work, I haven’t been able to read through newspapers and watch news on tv. It was only at the latter part of last week that I heard of the police torture done by Manila policemen to a suspected snatcher. It was another police who perhaps took the courage to capture the inhumane act via his mobile phone. The suspect was stripped naked, and his genitals were tied to a rope. Each time the guy failed to answer the policemen’s questions Mr Binayug, the officer who was said to be holding the rope tugs hard at it, while his troops would hit the guy repeatedly.
It is these kind of incidents that make civilians regard police officers as law breakers instead of enforcers. It is really sad and quite unfair for all those honest and noble policemen. I certainly hope and pray that justice be served to the wretched guy who died of torture under the hands of these police officers.
