If you will be asked what makes you proud as a Filipino, I’m sure you can enumerate hundreds of characteristics and personalities that make you honored to be born and raised in the Philippines.
Bayanihan, breath-taking beaches, rich culture, yummy delicacies, positive disposition in life, resiliency during a disaster, People’s Champ Manny Pacquiao, Miss Universe 2016 Pia Wurtzbach, and Lea Salonga… these are just some of the many reasons why we have always been proud to become a Filipino.
But if you will be asked, what are the things you loathe about being a Filipino, I’m sure you also have an unlimited list of negative things that somehow makes you cringe and ashamed of. One of these shameful Filipino attitudes is some Filipinos ability to fool or take advantage of their fellow Filipino for their own benefit.
Just like what we are normally happening in the streets on a daily basis, where snatching, hold up, and robbery is almost like a normal thing that we Filipinos are getting used to.
Much like this video which is now going rounds on social media as if it was taken from an action-packed film.
In the video posted by Facebook page Buhay Pinoy, a policeman could be seen on top of residential roofs in a neighborhood as if searching for something.
Apparently, a snatcher tried running away after performing an illegal activity in a nearby grocery store and even climbed up the roofs of the neighborhood in order to escape the authorities.
But being true to their duty as law enforcement, the brave policeman also climbed up the top of each house and chased the culprit. As soon as he was able to catch the snatcher, he gave him a straight punch right ahead.
The criminal even tried to fight back but good thing another concerned citizen came to rescue and helped the policeman to pacify the snatcher. At least two civilians helped the policeman to pin down the suspect who is still trying his luck to escape even if he already has handcuffs.
The four of them carefully went down the roof as the onlookers’ cheers for the brave policeman and boos the snatcher.
Watch the full video below:
Ito yung sinasabi kong nang snatch sa Super Metro maaksyong nakipag habulan sa pulis at napadpad sa bubong. Buti na lang nahuli. Ingat po kayo sa mandurukot. Tsk tsk
