“I think it is a very important lesson that despite all of the other things until satellite, until cyber, of course, we use it all. But in the end, you need to be part of the community,” Marcos said in a mix of English and Filipino.

“The only time [we are] truly effective is when the community trusts our policemen,” he pointed out.
