Brokeback Police Officers’ Unspeakable Brutality!
Someone or some people in uniform has/have to pay for the utterly disgusting, revolting, nauseating video below that details the brand of police brutality in the Philippines. This “police brutality” YouTube clip is now circulating on Facebook, and the one who posted it, along with the many people who openly expressed their disgust on the comment section, was hoping that it would catch the attention of some people in authority to conduct an investigation in order to punish those responsible for this unspeakable evil.
The video, which appears to have been taken by one of the culprits (perhaps a police officer ), shows three heavily wounded young men in an unknown location. It appears that the video was taken after these three young men, who were merely identified as “snatchers”, were brutally beaten and abused by the police. The video speaks for itself: the three young victims with bloodied, swollen face due to the severe beatings and abuse they received from their brutal, evil police captors, were anxiously waiting for what appears to be another stage of ‘police brutality.’ This time two of the victims were instructed by one of the police to do the unthinkable. They were asked to do a “torrid kiss” in front of their police captors. Yes, the so-called “macho” police officers who are only good at beating defenseless citizens were so eager to witness two young men kissing each other. Why of all things these disgusting police officers wanted to see two heavily wounded young men locking each others’ lips?
Some responsible high-ranking police officers need to act on this anomaly and make those “brokeback” police officers pay for their crime. Those brokeback police officers behind this disgusting video do not deserve to work in the government sector a minute longer. They all deserve to be sacked and then locked behind bars for abuse of authority and other possible crimes they committed. They deserve to be in a company of rapists and criminals in jail! If those three victims were indeed “snatchers”, there was no need to abuse them and violate their rights. We have a Constitution the protects both the innocent and the guilty, and police officers know this very basic principle. The law protects the rights of the accused, and nobody- not even the highest official of the land- has the right or authority to deprive anyone of his rights.
If our President really wants to gain the trust and support of his constituents, he must also look at the police brutality and abuses of some people in uniform. Since the government holds a monopoly on force, it is then the duty of the President to see to it that this “state force” is never abused and never used against any individual in this country. Police brutality is one of the reasons why a lot of Filipinos don’t trust the government. And if the government could no longer protect the rights of individuals and if it condoned the brutality and abuses of some people in uniform, then it is our responsibility as individuals to protect our life, liberty and property by arming ourselves against the violators of our rights. Indeed, if the government failed in its duty to protect individual rights, then every individual has the moral duty to arm himself/herself in order to protect his rights against his intruder, including the government.
