Lawmen kill 13 in Quezon shootout

Fatalities were all criminals, say police


LUCENA CITY, Philippines —At least 13 alleged members of a big criminal group from Bicol were killed in a gun battle with policemen and soldiers on Maharlika Highway in Quezon province on Sunday afternoon, according to Army officers.

The officers said the fire fight erupted after two sports utility vehicles carrying the alleged gang members tried to smash through a police-military checkpoint near the boundary of Plaridel and Atimonan towns. The exchange of gunfire supposedly lasted for 18 minutes.

Lt. Col. Monico Abang, commander of the Army’s 1st Special Forces Battalion, said 11 of the alleged gang members died at the scene of the clash, while two others died on the way to the hospital.

A Quezon police official described the fatalities as members of a criminal gang.

Not much information about the gun battle was available Sunday night.

Bayan Muna Rep. Teodoro Casiño monitored the report of the fire fight and linked’s breaking story to his tweet. “This is one hell of a shootout,” he tweeted. INQUIRER FILE PHOTO

Bayan Muna Rep. Teodoro Casiño monitored the report of the fire fight and linked’s breaking story to his tweet. “This is one hell of a shootout,” he tweeted.

In a phone interview, Col. Alex Capiña, commander of the Army’s 201st Infantry Brigade, said that at around 3:30 p.m., the security forces set up a checkpoint in Barangay (village) Tanauan, Atimonan, and tried to flag down two black Mitsubishi Montero Sport vehicles.

But instead of heeding the order, Capiña said, the occupants of the SUVs opened fire on the security forces, prompting the policemen and soldiers to return fire.

The security forces were soldiers from the Army’s First Special Forces Battalion and intelligence officers from the Quezon Provincial Police Office, said Maj. Angelo Guzman, a spokesperson for the 9th Infantry Division based in Pili, Camarines Sur.

Senior Supt. Valeriano de Leon, Quezon police chief, said that no policeman was killed but one of the policemen, Supt. Hanzel Marantan, an official of the Philippine National Police-Southern Tagalog’s Special Operations Group, was hit in the hands and a leg.

De Leon said Marantan was taken to a hospital in Lucena City.

“He is now out of danger,” De Leon said.

De Leon said the Quezon police received information that members of a big criminal syndicate from Bicol would pass by in the area on Sunday.

“It was a solid tip from a government informer,” De Leon said by phone.

Coordination with the military led to the joint police-military checkpoint.

Capiña said traffic on the Maharlika Highway was temporarily diverted to the Bondoc Peninsula Highway, exiting in Gumaca town, because of the incident.

Capiña said eight .45 cal. pistols, one M-16 rifle and one M-14 rifle were recovered from the alleged gang members.

De Leon said the 13 men slain in the fire fight were members of a big-time drug syndicate.

He said, however, that police had yet to determine if the 13 men killed on Sunday belonged to the same drug syndicate three of whose members were killed in Tagkawayan town in Quezon last month.

On Dec. 17, three motorists from Camarines Norte were slain in an ambush carried out by two motorcycle-riding gunmen along the Quirino highway in Tagkawayan, Quezon.

The three men’s car yielded 10 kilos of high-grade “shabu,” or methamphetamine hydrochloride, with an estimated street price of P90 million.

Capiña did not provide other details on the activities of the supposed syndicate, but De Leon said the police would release information after the investigation. With a report from Juan Escandor Jr., Inquirer Southern Luzon and AFP

    two words: RUB OUT

    how naive does the police take the public to be???

    but it seems that there are suckers who buy the BS that 13 criminals would just fight to the death without taking down at least one cop. come on people. think.

    • legnasagra

      parang filipino movie, walang nalagas sa mga bida pero okay na rin na mabawasan ang mga masasama kahit saang panig man sila. Dead man tells no tales. Sana walang nadamay na mga inosente. 

  • rayingga

    Good for the lawless elements of the society, One thing is for sure maglalabasan ang mga kamag-anakan na nakinabang ng todo sa perang masama at maghahanap pa kuno ng hustisya. Yun namang CHR magkukumahog na magimbistiga at siempre lalabas sa final investigation ay over kill. Pag mga law enforcer ang nadale sasabibhin lang na kasama yan sa trabaho.

    if they are all dead ..they are NO LONGER suspects…lol

    the only issue is WHERE is the MONEY ?….they will stop &  wont be killed if they dont have something with them….lol

    All these guns and violence in the Philippines remind me of the Western movies I’ve seen as a child. This country is like the old wild, wild west – scary.

    • john clark

      Wild West? The wild west was actually peacefull… Because all of them had guns and In his book, Frontier Violence: Another Look, author W. Eugene Hollon, provides us with these astonishing facts:

      In Abilene, Ellsworth, Wichita, Dodge City, and Caldwell, for the years from 1870 to 1885, there were only 45 total homicides. This equates to a rate of approximately 1 murder per 100,000 residents per year.In Abilene, supposedly one of the wildest of the cow towns, not a single person was killed in 1869 or 1870. I would belive your remark if you had factual information of life in the US from 1870 to 1885…  Basing it from movies when you where a kid is nonsense!

        Well that expression is wrong… No sense in talking about historicial inaccuracies…

  • AllaMo

    It seems like the PDI by-liner submitted this article all on the basis of a say-so by the interested police and afp operatives. PDI is even more (idiotically) gutless and naive to print the report without benefit of an investigation.

  • DarkSideOfTheMoon2

    being flagged down….you start shooting at the lawmen…of course babarilin ka din nila..criminal or not…..

  • Pio Gante

    specifics please, the report is like a blank wall;

    criminals are cowards and unless they have the upper hand, they will not engage gov’t forces in a firefight. they would rather be alive, get arrested and released on bail because that way they can still continue with their criminal activities.

  • Eric

    ….authorities recovered a rusty .22 calibre revolver in one of the SUVs……

    • dominator1

      Oh please.. Don’t insinuate! Maybe your 1 of them. San ba dapat ang target nyo bago kayo naubos?

    Nakow, walang casualty sa mga pulis? Rob out ang sasabihin ng CHR jan. Dapat nagbuwis buhay sila para lusot sa CHR. Tama ba CHR?

  • wakats

    Nice work – at least this time no innocent civilians perished.

    Solid intelligence from deep penetration agents have yielded positive results from years of developing association and confidence among the enemies of society.

    Kudos to the Army Command of the 201st Infantry Brigade.

  • delpillar

    Ang Police at Militar ay solid ang intelligence unit para i-schedule ng tirahin ang mga masasamang target.

    Pero minsan ang di kanais-nais na nagyayarai ay ang ibang biktima ay inocente sa krimen ng kanilang kasama. Out of 7 or 8 na nasa van or SUV for example, minsan, ang totoong target ay mga apat or lima lang.

    Yung iba ay nakikisakay lang.

    Minsan, ang target ay isa lang at naki-hitch-hike sa isang kotse ng kaibigan. Minsan, tinatamad ang mga police at militar at kinu-consider na ang lahat ng nasa kotse ay isang grupo ng mga masasama.

    So dapat, iwasan na makisakay sa mga tao, pinsan, kamag-anak na hindi nyo talaga kilala kung ano ang trabaho nya.

    Sa part naman ng mga police at militar, it is a shame for they don’t have enough skills yet who are the valid target or not. Their possible mistake or probably a crime is not of mistakenly killed a pure-civilian companions of the valid targets but by ASSUMING and PRESUMING (right from the beginning of the encounter) that ALL inside the SUV were BAD GUYS.

    So let us wait kung sino-sino ang identities ng 13 na napatay.

    Minsan, ang isang SUV (or kahit isang sedan lang) na papunta ng Manila or other prime destinations na pag-aari ng isang middle-class or just above the poverty-linena tao a dumadaan ng mga bus terminals na siksikan ang mga pasahero at nagyayaya ng pasahero para man lang kahit sa gasolina ay may pambayad na. Kung ang ma-pick-up mong pasahero ay apat, meron ka kaagad na at least 2,000 pesos. So ang malas mo lang kung ang isa o some of the passengers that were picked-up ay nasa ORDER OF BATTLE na ng POLICE or MILITAR. Kapag ni-operate ng militar ang TARGET, in the Philippines, all of the people inside will be PRESUMED and ASSUMED as CO-TARGET din.

    • James

      Mukhang malabo ang mga nilapat mong posibilidad.

      Mahirap itago ang mga matataas na kalibre ng baril sa loob ng isang sasakyan na hindi alam ng ibang nakasakay.
      At kung nakikihitch lang ang mga sinasabi mong TARGET, kahit papaano ay may mapapansin kang kahina.hinala sa kanilang mga kilos.

      • delpillar

        Hwag mo munang paniwalaan ang mga nakuhang armas sa engwentro. Those can be planted easily. Let us wait kung mate-traced kung sino ang may mga may-ari ng mga baril.

        Let us wait also for the identities of the 13 dead alleged criminal gang members.

        Military and police, specially those from the SWAT and anti-NPA operations, ay maraming unlicensed firearms din.. specially pistols.

        Kapag may enkwentro, usually ang mga pistols na nakahua sa bangkay ng NPA members ay hindi nitu-turn-over sa commanding officers. Kinukuha nila at tinatago. Yung mahahaba lang usually ang tinu-turn-over.

        Mag-compile ka ng Enkwentro between NPA and Military/Police since 1980’s. Mostly sa balita, makikita mo na ang nakasulat na narecovered sa encounter sites ay mahahabang baril. Minsan, wala talagang pistolang nakukuha, about 90% of what I read.

  • jajabeltran

    one word: RUBOUT!

  • Ommm

    Oh common…13 suspects open fire on police, on a remote lonely road with no witnesses….the police are such experts none are killed and won’t have a statement until they figure one out, which the public will eat up and congratulate the cops because they say these were criminals…

    How gullible are the public?

    • Loggnat

      Do you have an inkling how a checkpoint is properly set up? The main security and safety rule is to minimize the number of the personnel that are exposed to danger when operating a roadside checkpoint. One or two will be doing the stopping and checking while the rests will be monitoring the situation in safe positions and with proper cover in case of a firefight. Any fool who thinks they can shoot thru a properly manned checkpoint will be in for a surprise of their life. The only thing better is a properly set up ambush where no personnel will be exposed to danger. So it is not unheard of to have minimum casualty incurred in a properly set up checkpoint and maximum casualty to those who tried to force thru it and engages the law enforcers in a firefight.

      • Ommm

         “Do you have an inkling how a checkpoint is properly set up?”

        Not really as i haven’t studied life in Nazi Germany or other police states so much.

        The government informer tip is nice as it gives you reasonable grounds for an intrusive search yet cannot be verified. Although one would wonder why 13 high profile drug criminals were all traveling stuffed in 2 SUV’s… returning from a big cartel meeting and on a budget because of recession? 

      • Loggnat

        A properly set up checkpoint has got nothing to do with ideology or any kind of government. It’s main purpose is to provide maximum protection for your personnel and a common sense preparation for the worst situation during an operation of a checkpoint. They are taught, and practiced in all law enforcement and military in every nation in the world. Maybe they are guns for hire. A mercenary private army that can be employed by corrupt politicians for a price. Maybe they are on the way to do a job for some politician in Quezon or Aurora to convince some farmers and fisher folks to stop going against some plan for a corrupt politician’s pet project like a free seaport? Maybe? I do not know really….. maybe it is an ambush instead of a checkpoint either way it was executed remarkably well. :)

      • Ommm

        Actually a checkpoint has everything to do with ideology and basic freedoms of citizens. They operate under the condition of prior constraint, guilty until proven innocent, with warrant-less questioning and searches being commonplace without reasonable grounds for the stop.

        Different story if the police run the license plate and find outstanding tickets or warrants, or actually see something suspicious, like a gun, then by all means stop the car… but was this checkpoint a direct result of intel designed for stopping these particular subjects, or just a common fishing expedition?

        The not so great reporting doesn’t state that so what do we know :)

      • Edward Castro

        so many naive posters here bro.  let me add that the victims were not expecting a checkpoint.  you’re right that the checkpoint location will be in a strategic location where the police will have a vantage position and the victims will be sitting ducks.

  • 1voxPopuli

    im pretty much sure that what you will see in the scene of the crime are men with caliber .45 in their hands, finger on the trigger almost ready to shoot.

  • niceguy60

    We heard this kind of news before. The police should explain this thoroughly. We should congratulate them if it’s a job well done. But they should be punished if this turns out to be a rubout.

  • Homer Guo

    enter na agad CHR….. protektahan nyo ang human rights ng mga kriminal kesa sa rights ng mga biktima at mabibiktima pa.

  • opinyonlangpo

    Usually the authorities know them beforehand and just lure them to a trap. It happened twice in the north, they are untouchable in their stronghold and so they lure them out to places where they are vulnerable. Anyway, hope it lessens crime as it is bad for the economy.

    ang trabaho ng CHR ay ppagtakpan ung mga polis at army … at pano mo nasabing kriminal nga ung mga napatay? sinabi lang ng army at polis naniwala ka na agad … nakalimutan mo na ba martial law, ung mga coups, bank robberies, kidnappings, etc? e puro polis at militar ang bos dyan

       It’s better to kill the criminals than keep them alive. Much more safer world for my family.

    • Loggnat

       They were s+up1d enough to fire at the police and military manning the checkpoint . Do they expect authorities to just let it go and not do anything specially when one of their buddy was wounded. You are obviously clueless and naive if you expect the police and military not to shoot back at you and maybe just warn you to drop your firearm after you already discharge it at them.The normal response to being shot at is to shoot back at the individual shooting at you to defend yourself so you don’t get killed. With that kind of thinking, I hope you do not own a gun because the police will not wait for you to get a shot at them first. Just by moving as if you are reaching for your firearm will get you showered with lead and it will be a justified reaction to the threat to their lives from you. Law enforcement officers are legally allowed to protect themselves from any threat from armed individuals.

  • joerizal

    Paano naging shootout yun? Isang putok galing sa mga suspects tapos sinalubong sila ng isang libong bala. Baka naman binaligtad ang istorya? Wala na kasing makakapag-kuwento sa mga suspect kasi doon na sila sa langit o impiyerno kumakanta ngayon.

    • Dolphen Presbi

       Criminal ka rin siguro ano? Kaya ipinagtatanggol mo pa?

  • Jerry

    Really big syndicate, they have to be killed all so no one can tell who is handling them. Not unless they are all stoned, the suspects can’t easily engaged the government elements. Six or seven in one SUV, how many can fire their guns there. My point is, if they really are a big syndicate they should have spared even one so the public will know what they really are into.

  • Dolphen Presbi

    Pag binaril ka, patayin mo na ang criminal. Dahil walang awa kang papatayin nila. Kaya huwag kang tanga Jerry.

    13 malefactors. Where is Judas by the way? The informant? 

    If the report is correct, there were 13 men, no women and children in two black montero SUVs, then the mere fact that all killed were males and armed with eight 0.45 cal pistols, one M16 and one M14, all military grade weapons, then these are tell tale signs that these men are into some criminal activities.

        Ang ginawa ng Militar at Gobierno, ay pinagsama sama na ang militar, kapulisan at intellegence agencies hindi upang maging magaling sa pagtuklas ng mga krimen, lalo na ang krimen ng pulis at miltar mismo, kundi masabuatan sa paggawa ng krimen: MULA SA GAMBING  HANGGANG SMUGGLING; SA DRUGA AT SA KOTONG; SA PADARAYA SA ELEKS’YON HANGGANG SA GRAFT AND CORRUPTION.

        Ngayon nakarinig ka ba ng pulis o secret agent na may inaresto na sundalo na nakagawa ng krimen. Wala. Pinoprotektahan pa nga nila, Tualad ni Kapunan, Palparan, ang mga Coup Plotters, ang mga kasangkot sa nandaya sa eleksyon ni Fernando Poe at marami pang iba (mahabang listahan.

  • Rovingmoron

    That’s the problem with our law enforcement agencies, they only act to set up check points when there is a tip that a big syndicate would be passing by. Otherwise, they don’t care at all. If there was no tip from an informer, it is likely that the loose firearms carried by the slain suspects may have been used for illegal activities again. Therefore, setting up check points along the roads is important deterrent to proliferation of loose firearms.

    ‘Yung 8 .45s, 1 M-16 at 1 M-14, hindi ba dapat suriin ng FEU kung lisensiyado ang mga ito? Puede rin bang isapubliko ang resulta kung kanino nakapangalan ang mga baril? Ito po ang katanungan ni Mob Rally kay chief PNP Alan Purisima.

      Thats right,  Philippines must be cleaned with any influence of leftist and communists politicians.  Their interest is not for the country whose ideology is worthless and can never be applied to the settings of the modern times.  Other Asean countries have done away with the communists long time ago so why not the Philippines.  Even the giant communists countries like China and Russia have shifted to capitalism because communists ideology never bring their countries to prosperity

    Problema na namn ito ng mga lispo kung paano nila ituwid ang paliwanag nila, hahanap nalang ng ibang gawain para ilihis ang pansin ng taong bayan sa bagong kahiyaan sayang ang slogan ” TO PROTECT, AND SERVE” daw niratrat ka agad palitan na lang ng “NO STOP, YOU DIE”

    • Mang_Ben

      “To Protect and Serve” is the fifteenth episode of the science fiction television series 2002 revival of The Twilight Zone. The episode was first broadcast on November 6, 2002, on UPN.

      It is the motto of the Los Angeles Police Academy since 1955.

      It became the official motto of the Los Angeles Police Department in 1963.

      The author of the motto is Officer Joseph S. Dorobek.

      Is it also the motto of the PNP?  Since when?

  • joel genese

    Medyo mahirap ngang paniwalaan ang kwento ng pulis. Naka SUV Mit. Montero ang mga gang suspect tapos makipagbarilan lang sa mga pulis. Mga leftist seguro o mga environmental advocates ang mga napatay pero hindi gang member. Baka ang pulis at ang municipal executive na napatay ay siyang naging escort para seguro safe na makarating sana sa manila ang mga iba pang napatay.

  • Hey_Dudes

    I think either these eskambags are so brave or were always absent in class whenever there was a lesson about – If you are asked to stop at a checkpoint obviously for a reason, if you are not someone hiding anything in your underwear – you stop?   The fact they did not stop in spite the phalanx of soldiers and police waiting at the checkpoint, they were determined to shoot it out?  As always, in any shootout specially when outnumbered, the bad always end up stiff!

    Congratulations again security forces and to those saying it is another salvage work  – why don’t you take a hike?

    • Don Dee

      If you set-up your check-point correctly, especially when given a heads-up that you are about to intercept a heavily armed and extremely dangerous group, you would set it up in such a way that it can be likened to an “ambush”. You don’t want to give these bad guys a chance. And because the check point was done by the military and not police, medyo iba tactics nyan, shoot to kill talaga. If you resist, talagang totodasin ka sa ganyang sitwasyon.

      Of course, we are just speculating here. I am all for an exhaustive investigation of the incident. SOP naman yan e, whether it is a good shoot or a bad shoot. Let the CHR do it’s job.

      Asus. Conspiracy theorist, lol. And you base your conclusions on what? Nothing. Thin air. But hey, I am all for a thorough investigation on the incident. SOP naman yan e. Basta merong shootout, merong “debriefing” at investigation yan. Heck, bring the CHR on it.

      Sino criminal, yung pumatay o yung pinatay? That is a legitimate question. Apparently,some of those killed are connected to the PNP or military. Check where they are assigned. Were their movements in accordance to an order? PNP or military are not allowed to move in force without an official ORDER. Kung merong order, a case could be made that this is a mis-encounter. Kahit walang witness, DEAD MEN DO TELL TALES.  Let an investigation be conducted. 

      But until then you do not get to conclude that this is a rubout.

    • paul

      hehe…affected ka ah…..kaliwete ka ba? angry bird mode ka masyado sa mga pules…hindi naman sa mga anghel din sila pero maga masasamang tao ang pinatay kaya nabawasan pa rin ng masamang tao sa mundo….mag sopdrinks ka muna kadre…

    No witnesses to corroborate the PNP’s story.
    But what do you expect…”Dead men tell no tales”.

    • Don Dee

      DEAD men do tell tales. It is called FORENSIC evidence. Did they fire their weapons? Or not all? Allow a thorough investigation on the matter. Let the CHR oversee the investigation! If the reports are correct that some of the casualties are connected to the PNP or military, they should have an official ORDER to move in force like that. Are they even in their right jurisdiction? (spotty pa ang reports as of this moment). I mean if a PNP officer from Bulacan is operating in Quezon, you have to ask the question why? Meron bang “AWOL among them? Again, alarm bells if this is the case. But if these people are operating on a proper order in their correct jurisdiction. etc. then yes, a case can be made that this is a mis-encounter (bad shoot).

    Rubout, salvage my azz…

    • Don Dee

      Just as I thought. One of the casualties is a police officer who is “operating” out of his jurisdiction. Pero yung iba dito, even before the proper identities of the casualties were established, meron ng conclusion na rub-out. Sige nga paki explain bakit yung police na yun ay bumibyahe out of his jurisdiction with this heavily armed entourage? Where are his official orders (black and white yan, hindi verbal).

      Pero sige pa rin, investigation pa rin. SOP is for a thorough investigation. Establishing the identities of the casualties  is just the first step.

    Ang tanong na lang ay yung rule of engagement.
    Nauna ba talagang nagpaputok yung mga nasa SUV?

    YUng mga police na nagcheckpoint ba ay naka full uniform or naka civilian lang at mixed-civilian/military uniforms. Yung ginamit bang pangharang sa daan para sa check-point ay military police cars ba or stainless na owner-type jeep or civilian cars din?

    Yung bang ginamit na pangharang for check-point ba ay talagang wooden/steel bench with proper signage or bangko or puno ng saging or nyog lang.

    • Don Dee

      The army unit manning the checkpoint was prepared and waiting to intercept this heavily armed group. They had all the time to prepare and set-up the “kill-zone” if ever the group resisted. That one of them was hit at all is a minus point for the commander. Baka ikaw kung mag-setup ka ng “intercept” gusto mo yung ta-tabla ang kalaban. Does that make more sense?

      • koolkid_inthehouse

        Dont compare the elite Isralite commando with corrupt PNP.  If there’s planning Purisima should be on the top of it with all the details.  He said he will investigate. Meaning no planning from the top brass or intel.  You’re making us Filipino people look stupid with your brainless planning talks.

        Sounds like you’re a stupid member of PNP or AFP.  Too obvious it’s a massacre whoever this passengers on the vehicles. There’s no plan to apprehend but to massacre.

    They dont have the intention to apprehend this group and let the court decide. They intent to liquidate them.  Those inside the cars stand no chance to fight. Sana may video ng shoot out na lalabas.  May mga camera naman sa mga cellphone ng mga police.  Dapat may video cam sa mga check point kagaya sa ibang country.

    Sa dami ng picture na pwedeng ilagay sa news na ito ay inuna pa ng writer ang campaign ad ng makakaliwang casino

  • bugoybanggers

    Hahaha.. dapat lang. papano na ang mga kabit ng mga ito? Wala ng suporta?

  • Jaime

    A New Year’s extended celebration.
    Kinulang ang paputok noong New Year to get rid of devil’s spirit.
    Ayan di naitaboy, barilan katakot takot…from Bae to this.

  • Joe_in_Bikol

    Nothing will come of it. The reporters will be paid off and the news will suddenly get quiet. Hear anything recently about Ram Revilla, or the Reyes, or Ampantuan or any other of the big profile cases?


    Lawmen killed 13 in a shootout kaso me 3 lispo at sundalo. What is happening to our country Hon. Teddy Casino? Ano ba ang papel nyo dito at ang picture nyo ang nakalagay? Ah baka campaign manager nyo pala ang sumulat ng news item na to

  • koolkid_inthehouse

    This is a massacre.  Whoever are the passengers very obvious it’s a massacre. 

    Cartel against cartel and who else are in control?  PNP and AFP all PMA graduates.

    • batangpaslit

      Tsong, kung may ebidensia ka, di mag file ka nang kaso kontra sa police at sundalo na kasama sa mga ang intercept sa nabaril.
      abogado ka pala ng mga taong masasama ang budhi eh.
      sugod….walang urongan, kampihan mo ang mga ungas na magnakaw at mamatay tao.

      • koolkid_inthehouse

        I’m not stupid like you. How do you know they’re hitmen and robbers?  Do you have evidence?>

      • batangpaslit

        lahat sila robbers. i don’t give a hoot kung magka ubosan sila ng lahi.
        your stupid answer betrays that you cannot support your argument.
        what is good for you, stay from arguing if you cannot defend what you blog

      • koolkid_inthehouse

        there is no argument.  An obvious massacre, look at the latest pictures now. All bullet marks are concentrated on one side of a vehicle like a firing squad was setup.  If you run a checkpoint all the hits will be on rear. 

        I can’t argue with you crackhead.

      • batangpaslit

        hehehe…kawawa ka pala Tsong.
        dimo kaya maki pag debate pag nabali ang supot mong katuwiran
        you are just confirming that you are among them—you are in the company of the Jueteng Lords

  • Olibo

    Jueteng is evil.

  • Markov Chain

    Clearly a gang-vs-gang case….one gang had just collected money, the other gang immediately supposedly received an anonymous tip….robbed the other gang and butchered them…..made the scene look like it was a shootout by killing all the people in the vehicle……supt shoot himself in the foot and hand…….then people buy the story…..because Filipinos are very stupid…

  • Jaime

    I feel sorry to common Filipinos.
