MPD official on US Embassy rally: 'Magkagulo na kung magkagulo'


An MPD official was caught on video provoking policemen to fight.

A Manila Police District ranking official was recorded commanding the policemen to disperse anti-US protestants after they were able to go near the US Embassy during a rally on Wednesday.

According to 24 Oras's report, MPD Deputy Director for Operations Sr. Supt. Marcelino Pedrozo could be heard ordering his men to fight and expressing disappointment that they let the protestants reached the embassy.

"Wala man lang kayong hinuli, ang dami-dami niyan... Magkagulo na kung magkagulo, pulis tayo rito e. Pwede ba tayong patalo sa mga yan? Anong mukhang ihaharap natin sa embassy? Kaya i-disperse mo 'yan," Pedrozo said.

"Lumaban kasi kayo! Mga pulis kayo hindi kayo lumalaban!" he added.

Pedrozo denied that he told such order through a text message to GMA News Online.

He stated that the rallyists tried to take their police mobile by force.

"Wala po tayo inutos na dispersal, sila nag-umpisa na manakit ng mga pulis. Gusto lang ng driver ng mobile na ialis ang sasakyan dahil sinisira na ng mga rallyists," Pedrozo said.

"Ang nangyari gusto agawin sa kanya ang mobile, kaya sa kagustuhan niya maialis at makaiwas sa pananakit ng mga raliyista ay iniwas niya ang sasakyan," he added.

Twenty six protestants were arrested during the rally and Pedrozo said they were released through the MPD and legal counsel of the protesters' agreement.

The deputy director also defended the police mobile's driver, saying he only wanted to get the vehicle away from the scene to prevent its destruction.

"Walang intensyon managasa ang driver. Natakot siya sa dami ng raliyista kaya iniwas lang niya [ang] sasakyan. Gusto lang niya tanggalin ang mobile dahil bukod sa na-vandalize, ay sinisira na nila," Pedrozo said.
