Mandaluyong cops in viral video sent to Marawi City

Published

Philippine National Police chief Director General Ronald dela Rosa has ordered the deployment of two Mandaluyong City policemen to Marawi City after they were shown on a viral video physically abusing two barangay ordinance violators.

Dela Rosa, along with National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) chief Director Oscar Albayalde, personally went to the Mandaluyong City police station to confront the two erring police officers.

Chief Supt. Dionardo Carlos, PNP spokesman, said the entire national police force is embarrassed by the action of PO1 Jose Julius Tandog who was seen in the video hitting the arrested barangay ordinance violators with a stick.

“The video was shown to the PNP chief and he got mad. He immediately went to the police station (where the two cops are assigned),” said Carlos, referring to the video which went viral on social media.

The video was secretly taken by one of the two victims who were earlier arrested for consuming alcoholic beverages outside their residence, in violation of a barangay ordinance.

Based on the initial report, Tandog and another police officer, identified as Chito Enriquez were conducting patrol when they spotted the two engaged in a drinking session at the side of the road.

They were immediately accosted and taken to the barangay hall when they tried to resist arrest.

But in the same video, the other alleged victim was heard apparently provoking Tandog to hit them and asking for a copy of the ordinance which they had violated.

Tandog explained that the two individuals they arrested were rowdy even inside the vehicle on their way to the barangay hall.

He admitted that he flared up due to the provocation of the arrested suspects, but he said he is willing to suffer the consequence of his action.

    swift action ha? But if it is true that these two are rowdy, resisting arrest, i think the policemen’s action is justifiable. As we know, we filipinos often abuse our so called rights, we need iron fist to make us follow the rules. Send those generals, colonels, the higher-ranking officers who were involved in drugs who were identified, included in the lists. Where are they now sir bato sir. It is what me & maybe most of the filipininos wanted to read being punished or getting killled. Not just the smaller ones.

      Justifiable to repeatedly hit an unarmed person/a living being they way he did? During these times of extra judicial killings do you think any civilian would dare cross a police officer, let alone as POS pig who carries himself like this? Have you seen how arrogantly he answers to the media when questioned about his actions? The pig obviously is lying. He even said that the victims cursed and slapped him, I guess you also believe that, right?

    Not to judge the policemen involved here, but if all policeman can be easily provoked verbally or intellectually by drunk young boys then we are wasting taxes in their training.
