MANILA, Philippines—A Valenzuela policeman was nabbed in Manila on Saturday for threatening a gas station attendant with a gun.

SPO2 Rajean Apolinar Mirando, assigned at the warrant and subpoena section of Valenzuela police station, was arrested at 2:55 p.m. Friday at a gas station on Rizal Avenue corner Teodoro Street in
Tondo, Manila, after threatening Jun Velardo with his 9-mm service pistol.

According to investigations conducted by SPO1 James Poso and PO3 Gilbert Isole, Mirando went to the gas station to have his owner-type jeep refueled but Velardo mistakenly filled it with diesel.

The two have agreed to just drain out the diesel and return the payment. Mirando lost his cool, however, when he asked for a replacement of his reserve fuel and Velardo refused, prompting another
attendant to call the police.

Mirando, detained at the Manila Police District General Assignment Section, is facing a case of grave threat and violation of the election gun ban.

    The management should have returned the reserve fuel to SPO2 Mirando at Velardo’s expense. I can understand his frustration.

    • gmaisthebestpresident

      yes but no need to point your gun at the poor gas attendant. Tsapa lang ipakita mo eh matatakot na sa iyo mga yun.

      • Hunter421

        True but it was a Filipino cop he was dealing with and he should have been more careful not to provoke him.

    This cop, like many others, act uncivilized too often. Ordinary people, even gun owners, go through the same inconvenient situations. But do they act like barbarians?

    They should institute caning in the PNP for these animals. Hatawin sa puwet na walang saplot.

    May karapatan ang pulis na yun mag demand.. palpak ang trabaho ng gasoline boy.

    Mali ang ginawang paraan ng pulis ng pag demand ng kanyang karapatan…

    dahil ba pulis di na pwede mag demand ng karapatan?!!!

    Philippines as usual, instant self justice, never any anticipations at all.

    • suroy_suroy

      But usual is also to have ignorant and not trained gas attendants, paying them almost nothing in wages and expect good service. Why not having modern selfservice gasstations, than it would be the mistake of the owner/driver. Now what in this case? Ten years in court under Philippines Justice? Hahaha!

      • AlexanderAmproz

        I know a gas station with 50,-pesos a day salary, less 25.- for housing in a small dog house !

        How to eat, what about medicines in case of need, 
        how to make a living with that salary.

        With a Ghost salary you get a Ghost employee.

        The filthy rich owner is known by the medias as a generous Chinoy “mécène” giving away time to time 10’000.- Pesos. for the poor. with headlines in this Provincial newspaper own by his relative.

        A Sardonic lough !

        PS: A Policeman becoming upset and trigger happy for a tip, only da Philippines !

    Me katwirang magalit ang pulis pero hindi dapat tinutukan ng baril ang gas-boy.

  • hopeless_na
