  1. PNP who were responsible for this braveness……you did a GOOD JOB again! CONGRATULATIONS..!!!! When you face your boss, don’t be bothered with their tiger looks or as if their real outlooks (when facing their sweethearts) and forgot to tap your shoulders for those were just pretensions as part of disciplinary strategies. The truth is, they are smiling secretly and deep in their hearts admiring your dedication by sacrificing your lives for the sake of justice unlike some of our criminal courts who can’t or never will appreciate your service for they are just after their own personal interests.
    When the last judgment comes, they are the first one to go down followed by our corrupt politicians…I can guarantee you that….
    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your loved ones..!!!
