Dayuhan na Diumano’y Nambastos sa Mga Pulis, Sasampahan ng Kaso

Published

Amid the enhanced community quarantine in the Philippines, tension is also rising between the impatient public and the law enforcement authorities. Military personnel and police are strictly regulating the quarantine protocols, in order to contain the spread of COVID-19. Yet sometimes, their task is not easy to execute, especially without the public’s cooperation.

On April 27, Makati police stated that they will be filing charges against a foreign resident who allegedly disrespected law enforcement authorities. According to a report from ABS-CBN News, the foreigner disobeyed the guidelines of enhanced community quarantine.

Javier Salvador Parra is a resident in an exclusive subdivision in Makati. Earlier this week, the village officials called police to complain about the ECQ violators within their community. While the police were roaming, they spotted one of Parra’s maid, who was allegedly not wearing a face mask.

In the ensuing confrontation, Parra, who was allegedly intoxicated, came out of the house to talk with the officers. Soon enough, things quickly escalated which eventually led to a physical brawl. According to Parra, he sustained injuries due to the confrontation.

In his written statement, Parra claimed that the officers “grabbed my hands, and brutally threw me to the ground and caused me physical injury and abrasions… He continued to scuffle and keep me on the ground to put handcuffs on me.”

Meanwhile, netizens are divided in this issue. Some people are calling to reprimand the foreigner for allegedly disrespecting the law enforcement officers. On the other hand, some people pointed out that the officers were in the wrong, and the foreigner was unjustly harassed right inside his own property.

Pinamigay ng milyonaryong ito ang lahat ng kaniyang pera at ari-arian sa mahihirap, Maluluha ka sa sahilan aa likod nito

People believe that money is the root of all evil. Truth is, money only becomes the root of all evil if greed comes with it.

As time flies, people are getting greedier to the point that they would care more about expensive stuff and money instead of life itself. These people are the ones who end up doing bad things in exchange for a huge sum of money.

However, it appears that not everyone cares only about money.

Ali Banat is one of the few people who didn’t really care about money. Banat, who was born and raised in Sydney, Australia was born with a silver spoon and has been known for having a good life with his parents.

Growing up, his parents gave him enough money to start his own business. Soon enough, he became an owner of a successful security and electrical business that gave hi a luxurious life.

Ali Banat owned a lot of expensive things from Rolex watches, to sports cars, branded shoes, resorts, mansions and even branded clothing.

For years, Ali spent his life growing his business, buying properties and partying, proving how much he’s enjoying his life.

However, the millionaire who has a lavish lifestyle got struck by a bad luck after he was diagnosed with an aggressive form of mouth cancer. It was already on the fourth-stage when he was diagnosed with the mouth cancer. The doctor advised him that he only has seven months to live from that day.

Given the fact that he’s extremely rich, Ali can easily pay for a treatment regardless of its cost, just so he’d live longer. However, Ali refused to receive treatments and thought to himself that despite all the treatments, he knew that he would still die at a young age.

He humbly accepted his fate and decided to leave the world after making an impact on the lives of those who are in need.

In the next few months after he was diagnosed, Ali started donating all of his luxurious possessions. He donated these to people in need in different parts of the world.

He said, “when you find out you’re sick or you don’t have much time to live, this is the last thing you want to chase. And that’s how we should live our lives every day”.

Ali believes that on the day of judgement, his wealth wouldn’t matter. What will matter is the good that you did for others and how your actions made a difference in people’s lives.

Ali’s beliefs gave birth to a charity foundation called Muslims of the World that aims to build villages for widows, mosques, schools that will house orphans, medical centers and other businesses that will help the local community. The foundation earned about 1 million dollars.

Despite his condition, Ali still chose to personally visit the African countries to make sure that 100% of the donation will go directly to the projects of their charity foundation.

In 2018, Ali Banat lost his battle to cancer. Despite leaving the world at a young age, the multimillionaire was able to leave a legacy that truly inspired and touched millions of people in the world.

Despite that he already passed away, people from alll over the globe are still coming to donate money to his foundation to make sure that the legacy lives on forever.

‘Di Mapigilang Lumuha Ng Partially Vaccinated Na Empleyadong Ito Matapos Siyang Di Pasakayin Sa PUV

Published

A daily commuter can’t stop crying after she was advised that she cannot ride the public transport just because she’s yet to have her second vaccine shot.

Partially vaccinated is what they are called. In a report made by the 24 Oras, an employee named Diane was crying her eyes out in the streets while continuously expressing her dismay over the situation.

According to Diane, she woke up early that day to catch up with the public transport because she needed to take her medical exam at work. Unfortunately, she was advised to go home and was not allowed to ride the public vehicles just because she hasn’t gotten her second vaccine shot yet.

“Nakakapagod ‘yung ginagawa nila. Partially vaccinated naman kami. Bakit ‘di kami pinayagan?” Diane said in between her tears.

Diane also reiterated that it’s not their fault that their first dose schedule was on December and the second dose is set on February.

“Nagpa-vaccine naman kami. Hindi naman namin kasalanan na ‘yung second dose namin February pa. December ako nagpa-first dose. [AstraZeneca] po kasi ‘yung vaccine ko.” she

Under the DOTr Order No. 2022-001, partially vaccinated people are not allowed to ride the public transportation. On January 18, DOTr then clarified that for partially vaccinated individuals who need to get to work, they would need to bring the following:

1. Company ID
2. Proof of appointment for medical checkup, job interview or exam, and other services
3. Barangay health pass

DOTr Assistant Secretary Goddes Libiran then stated that Diane was not able to provide any of those proof that proves her travel is essential.

“Ang problema po, wala pong naipakita si Ma’am na kahit anong (The problem is, Ma’am was not able to show any) proof of job appointment, travel, ID, medical examination schedule/appointment, or even barangay health pass, to prove that the travel is essential,” Libiran said.

As expected, the implementation of the No Vaccine, No Ride policy received a backlash from the netizens who claim that it’s unfair especially with the fact that the rules are crystal clear but the implementation is not.

The netizens also noticed how the changes made by the government in terms of handling this pandemic always affect the poorest of the poor.

“It’s always like this. From announcing lockdowns on midnight effective the next morning to this. In the end, the poor are the ones most affected. Is it the people’s fault that their second dose is still in February? Just reminding the government that we had vaccines late,” penned by @nacho_cheeseyy

A netizen also mentioned that this incident just shows how incompetent our government is.

“So heart-breaking to see this. The ineptness and incompetence of this gov’t is too much that a full grown adult would just break down and cry out of frustration. I can feel it and it’s absurd that we have to go through this every day.” @sumshine013 wrote.
