Around 7:30am, a police officer stopped the public jeep that I was riding, the driver apologetically asked what was wrong, the officer answered with "you drive too slow". Really, Mr. police, that's the best you can do? The officer took the driver's license and told him to go right, the driver asked again if he was supposed to go right, because the "typically prescribed" way is the left one. The policeman reaffirmed it and told the driver that he goes right.
The driver then obediently followed and went right instead, but not more than 5 minutes have passed, there was another police officer who pulled him over. This 2nd police officer was reprimanding him for going the wrong way. The driver tried to explain that another policed officer told him to do so but he didn't believe. It was infuriating! He was implying "something" to the driver to let him off the hook.
I talked with the first police officer and told him about the ramifications of what he did and that bastard said that "it serves him right" I snapped and told him that it was his fault, blah blah blah, then he threatened me by saying that maybe I should go with him in the police station. AS IF I was threatened, well sorry but no, I was innocent of anything that could warrant an arrest.
The crowd was then building up, he asked for my ID. Upon seeing the name of my school, he tried to strike a conversation and explicitly reprimanded me of my acts. He was making it seem like he pitied a student like me (and my parents, and the masses who are paying for my tuition), so he would just let my "insolence" pass.
SHAME ON YOU, MR POLICE OFFICER.
Is this how you do your service to the Filipino people?
