BGC guards beat up and violently arrest two foreigners for skateboarding

SHARE:

This video shows less than a dozen of BGC guards beating up and arresting 2 Caucasian guys laying flat on the ground. Read the story to know what really happened.

This video was uploaded in YouTube last September 27 by ghelo bytes. The incident happened Happened on at the corner of 5th and 30th Avenue, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig where a classic police brutality and abuse of the power of authority were seen.

Watch carefully this clip showing Bonifacio Global City Guards Arresting 2 British Nationals:





As we can see on this video, a Caucasian guy was surrounded by at least seven marshals and his companion was restrained by a couple of BGC guards on the ground a few meters away from him. Another couple of officers came to the scene and quickly joined the 'harassment'.

What's more alarming on this incident is, we can see a punch given by an officer straight to the stomach of the foreigner with wrecked clothes and sore body.

Also, we heard some audible and clear wordings from the guards like "posasan mo" (shouting to put cuffs on the Caucasian man) while the guy held still on the ground kept on saying “I’d like you … I’d like you...yes...it’s okay...it’s okay”.

A guard noticed that they were being recorded, he approached the dude who was taking the video and shouted “hoy! putang ina mo ah! huy bakla!” (foul words).

Bonifacio Global City, Taguig is where foreign businessmen and expatriates from different other countries are going in the Philippines due to the concentration of Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) businesses here. That being said, authorities should protect and address the concerns and interests of the foreigners without any violence.

ABS-CBN News released a report regarding this incident which believed by many netizens as BIASED or one-sided report favoring and protecting the image of BGC Marshals. First of all, this case is not enough to be understand just by producing a short article.

What's missing to the report of the mainstream news media (ABS-CBN, so that they won't be tagged in biased reporting) is the story of these two foreigners on vacation. This story was originally given to Astig.ph by a source.
Here’s what happened before this kickboxing incident:

The English men’s names are Sam & Chris, two of the nicest people I’ve known in the city. Sam is a resident of BGC & Chris is his best friend who’s here for vacation.

Sam just wished to use his skateboard and have fun that Saturday Afternoon | Sept 27. They initially played in front of Banana Republic along fifth avenue, two lady police women approached them and nicely told them that they can’t use the board in that area and they instructed them to play at the park instead, which they did.

At the park, a lady marshal | the one shown in the video with a proud look at 1:16 stopped them rudely unlike the police women. As per Sam’s sharing, in their country they look up to their police officers as kings, they respected them and honour them, so their words were gold. So between the police women & the marshals, they believed the words of the police. They insisted to the marshal that they were told that it is okey to skate in that area and that’s where the argument began.

Marshal called for back-up and two Big Marshals arrived, confiscated the skate board, in Sam’s mind he just want to get the skateboard and run off as he was already scared, which he successfully did. Then new set of reinforcements arrive and this video is what happened next. They got caught.

Given, that the marshals’ were right that it is indeed prohibited to skate although ironically, to play IN A PARK, does it have to end this way? Where’s the maximum tolerance ruling? Oh maybe this marshals have a different code. We don’t need to be an investigator to figure out that there is something wrong here, they already got him but still the marshals had a grand time I guess showing off their kickboxing skills.

To make it even worse, Sam, with a bruised face and a broken rib and Chris were arrested for being charged with PHYSICAL INJURY by two of this wonderful marshals. Really clever and wise move. They got detained that very night.

Our experience with the investigating team made the night even worse. Few CLOSED DOOR briefings with the complainants (the marshals) and the police happened that night investigator needed to ask what happened, we were waiting for our turn to be asked about our side but it never came.

“Dito ko naintindihan, kawawa ka talaga kapag wala kang kakilala. Kahit ikaw na ang agrabyado, kayang kaya nilang palabasin na ikaw ang masama. I realized, ang bigat pala kapag ikaw na ang nasa ganitong sitwasyon.” (This is where I realized, you are really at a loss if you don’t know anyone. Even if you are the one being aggravated, they can easily manipulate the situation and make it appear like you were in the wrong. I realized, it is very heavy for someone to be in this situation)

For some reason they weren’t allowed to file a counter-charge that very night and we weren’t able to do anything to prevent them from detaining the two. Where in fact, Sam & Chris, were supposed to be the one filing that PHYSICAL INJURY CASE. If there’s any lawyer reading this we would really appreciate your advice sirs and madams.

Sam is currently confined in St. Lukes & Chris is being held at Taguig Police Station just beside City hall of Taguig as suspects.

You may verify the validity of this story, if this video is still not enough..

If you have the access kindly get hold of the CCTV footage from 3-5pm along Fifth Avenue and at 28th street corner 7th street and their sworn statement at BGC police station.

Kindly share until it gets to the right authorities, they’re being held for 4 days now.

They don’t have much friends here.

They don’t know what to do.

They badly need our help.


While the news from the ABS-CBN goes like this:
The two men then allegedly insulted her and a heated argument ensued, according to Senior Insp. Charry Deseo.

The lady guard, who was shoved, then called for help. Another guard who tried to confiscate the skateboard was then allegedly punched by one of the foreigners.


Meanwhile, Bonifacio Estate Services Corporation released an official statement:



XOLXOL.ph staffs believe that this is not foreigners should be treated in the Philippines. So, we are calling people to help these two foreigners if you know them or if someone can take an appropriate legal action for this case.

Please help spread this article to reach the right authority.
