Watch: Abusive government official caught hurting a tricycle driver

SHARE:

Netizens were at rage as government officials hurt a tricycle driver. His tricycle was destroyed as well.

Facebook user named Reydonn Vergara uploaded this video on his account on Wednesday, August 5. The incident happened in Mandaluyong City.

The short footage shows a tricycle driver and some baranggay officials. The man was hurt by the officials as he tries to get his belongings in the tricycle.

Authorities are only allowed to use force when they are in grave danger or within a threat of harm. By the looks of it, the tricycle driver didn't do anything that may be a threat to their lives or endanger them.

Netizens were at rage after watching the video. The tricycle driver looks pitiful. He screamed "Pang hanap buhay ko yan. Mga gamit ko!" (That's what I use to earn money, my belongings).

However, the video didn't show what the driver actually did to make the officials at rage.

Up to writing, the video was viewed more than 200,000 times. More than 7000 Facebook users also shared the video.

Facebook page of the rapper named Bassilyo posted the same video and was shared more than 80,000.

Mandaluyong City Public Information Office released a statement in response to the video.

"A video on social media shows the apprehension of a tricycle driver identified as Mr. Roberto A. Carpio Jr., who is also a former city hall employee assigned at the Traffic & Parking Management Office and the enforcers from the Mandaluyong Tricycle Regulatory Office.

GRABE naman napaka BEASTMODE daig pa LTO.

GRABE naman napaka BEASTMODE daig pa LTO.Given na may mali yung driver pero sana di nila pinaabot sa ganun na wasakin ang tricycle. Base sa video maling mali ang ginawa nila sa driver at sa tricycle nya. Mga boss ticket lang naman yan diba? Bakit kailangan nyo pang manakit? Ano ba karapatan nyo na manakit ng tao?Galing kay: ReydonVergaraLIKE Boy Viral FOR MORE VIRAL VIDEOS
