Vigilante vs snatchers

This morning's Unang Hirit reported about a dead man believed to have been killed by a vigilante. Alongside his corpse is a note stating that the man is a snatcher.

If the man is really a snatcher, and his killer is really a vigilante, maybe the PNP should start reflecting. Earlier, NCR PO Chief Vidal Querol openly stated that we should just give our cellphones to holdapers para di na masaktan. Now that somebody is doing the PNP's job, dapat nga sigurong mag-isip na ang mga pulis na mag-resign. And maybe Mr. Querol should file his resignation paper to be a model.

The killing might be brutal, inhuman and against the constitution, but as hapless citizens who can expect nothing from the police force supposed to protect us, do we have a choice?
