A video of a Police Officer pinning a seemingly harmless man to the ground has been making rounds in social media.
Two sides of a coin
In every story, there are always two sides. Oftentimes, what happened is taken out of context because of a clip or line from the whole story.
It’s a good thing the video here of the policeman was taken early and was able to capture what really happened. I don’t want to think what will be said of this policeman if the video only showed him actually pinning down the man already.
The person whom the drunk man had an accident with posted his side of the story.
It turned out that the drunk man bumped into a fellow driver’s vehicle. It happened during traffic, and when everyone else is already moving forward, the drunk man bumped into him.
Instead of making amends, the drunk man had the audacity to get mad at him. The poster accompanied his post with several videos.
Traffic po yan, itong BASTOSS na motorista, matagal na po syang naka stop, nag over take na po ang iba kaya ganun din ang ginawa ko.. Nagulat nalang ako ng bigla nya akong banggain.. Pagbaba ko hindi sya makausap ng ayos sa subra nyang kalasingan, sya pa ang galit. Buti nalang at napadaan si sir Police Officer Permejo.. At nakahingi ako ng tulong sa kanya. Maraming maraming salamat po sir. Sana lahat ng pulis katulad nyo.. Di nyo ako iniwan hanggang sa matapos. Saludo po kami sayo sir A . Athenna. Maraming salamat po.! Marami po syang nabitawan na mga massakit na salita lalo na kay sir, d man lang nya nirespeto ang pulis, kaya dapat lang tlga sa kanya yan.. Wag nang mag drive kung hindi kaya, dahil mas lalo lalaki ang problema
Drunk and resistive
The video started with a policeman and a drunk man having a confrontation. The drunk man got into an accident that’s why the policeman took his license.
The drunk isn’t having any of it and was trying to get his license back.
At one point the officer was heard saying, “Lasing ka kasi, lasing ka.” To which the man answered, “Kahit na.”
The officer was calling for backup but the man wouldn’t let go. He kept on trying to take his license back despite being told no.
Then it heated up
Thing started to heat up when the officer has had enough.
The drunk man was heard saying, “Hindi enforcer to e! Animal to!”
That’s when the officer pinned him to the ground.
It can be seen that the officer was not using too much force, he just needed to restrain the man from hurting him while they wait for their backup to respond.
Until the end of the video, the drunk man was trying to fight back. If he just waited properly, do you think the police officer would result to this?
