    What’s happening to the PH?! This incident is bad alone, but what makes it worse is that it happened now that there is actually a gun ban. How bad are our law enforcers nowadays?! Criminals ain’t scared anymore because they know that justice is only for the KKKs, so as long as they don’t touch them, they can get away with anything.
