Mintal Police Arrests Lechon

Image
The headline is not April Fool's joke.

Mintal Police arrested a lechon (roasted pig) being displayed and sold in one of the stalls at the Mintal Public Market last Sunday morning.

Last Sunday's arrest was not a joke but was equally humorous considering that this is the first time for the police to arrest a roasted pig. The owner was not around when the arresting officers apprehended the lechon but the seller was left in his stall with only his butcher's knife and a few bits and pieces of the roasted pig.

An interview with the Mintal Police indicated that they got a call from the Veterinarian's Office that morning. The doctor from the Veterinarian Office sought their help apparently because the owner did not have a permit from the Veterinarian's Office and the Slaughterhouse.

Bloopers

The incident involving the death of Trinidad "Trina" Etong, wife of ABS CBN broadcaster Ted Failon has stirred the whole country specifically the way the Quezon City Police District treated the case and the people involved in the case. The harsh treatment accorded to Ted Failon and his wife's relatives, who were dragged like criminals, gave rise to the fear among ordinary citizens.

Despite the heartaches and the headaches this case has brought not only to Ted Failon here's one amusing blooper involving an interview between a police officer and Alex Santos of ABS CBN just this morning.

Alex Santos was asking a police officer from QCPD if they have aleady ruled if the Trina Etong case was suicide or parricide.

Alex Santos: Sa tingin nyo po ba sir ang suicide ay krimen?

Police officer: Mahirap hong sagutin yan---alangan namang kasuhan natin yung patay!
