Tarlac Governor Susan Yap on police shooting incident: Erring cops have no place in our society
Tarlac Governor Susan Yap condemned the brutal killing of Sonya and Frank Anthony Gregorio in Paniqui, Tarlac.
The video of the shooting incident made its rounds online with the gunman identified as Police-Officer-Senior-Master-Sergeant Jonel Nuezca. The parties were fighting over a “boga” issue that ended with Nuezca pulling the trigger that ended the lives of the Gregorios. Governor Susan Yap quickly released a statement, saying that regardless of the prior commotion, “the police officer should have not murdered the victims. He should have observed maximum tolerance.”
She emphasized that in Philippine society, there is no place for erring cops and that the police officer must go through the full force of the law for what he has done.
The governor assured her constituents and the family of the victims that justice will be served.
