VIRAL: Netizen thanks Duterte after experiencing a car breakdown in a dark and crime infested area.
Netizen Amie De Jesus took her Facebook account and shared her experience when she had a car breakdown somewhere in Sucat road.
According to De Jesus, on her way home, she had a car trouble in a dark notorious area where she had to be braved and look for someone who can help her.
Few minutes later, a mobile unit came and asked about her problem, De Jesus said that she was hesitant to respond to the police officers mainly because of the bad reputation our men in uniform had done for the past decades.
But she didn't have a choice and she decided to talk to the officers.
They found out that her car was just ran out of water.
"Fortunately, my car just ran out of water that's why it overheated. Nah, I know some may say how women can be careless not to check the water gauge, but that is how preoccupied I was that I overlooked to check it." De Jesus said.
After fixing the trouble in her car, she tried to give the officers a few bucks but they refused to take it and said that they will arrest her if she insisted to give the money.
Before she end her post, De Jesus thanks Duterte for inspiring our police officers.
"To our beloved President Rodrigo Duterte, thank you for inspiring our officers. They are the stewards of the law and should honor the oath they have taken."

"Just now, I had an interesting experience with the men in uniform. On my way home, I had car trouble which led me to seek help from one of the gas stations near Sucat road. I was stuck along a dark notorious area but I had no choice but to brave the streets and look for someone to help me trouble shoot the car. A few minutes later, a mobile unit came and inquired about my plight. I was a little hesitant to respond mainly because of the bad reputation our men in uniform had incurred over the last decades. But since I was helpless, I just prayed and obliged to the officers. Imagine the scene, me against 4 uniformed men, I mean what are the chances of me not getting to my destination on time. I was not terrified, I was disheartened. Simply because I was afraid I would fall victim to them. But still, I mustered up my courage and talked to the officers. As they asked me to pop the hood, they checked which part of the engine was flawed. Fortunately, my car just ran out of water that's why it overheated. Nah, I know some may say how women can be careless not to check the water gauge, but that is how preoccupied I was that I overlooked to check it. It took us a while before we let the car simmer down. They took out their water reserve and continuously poured it over the engine. I was already embarrassed because I knew that they may be saving it as their drinking water. But still, they kept pouring it until the last drop was no more. There after, one officer asked me to check the car if it would start, and ALLELUIA! It did! I was overwhelmed that when I handed out a few bucks to their lead officer as gratuity for their trouble, he refused the payment. In fact, they all refused. He even said that he would get mad at me and arrest me if I insisted that he took my money. I was not only amazed, I was actually humbled by their act of generosity. Had I been so unfortunate, I would never know where I would be now. I am deeply indebted to these young valiant officers for saving my life. Yes, some may think "sheesh its just car trouble, why make a fus?" Think of it this way, with so many ghastly stories you hear about the police, only rare moments do we see and experience this type of help from our officers. It could have gone worse, you know. To PSI SIMEON P TACAD JR, PO2 Jerry Esperanza, PO1 Alexis Cugana and PO1 Mark Don Alejandro who are assigned at the Mobile Patrol and Security Unit, Aviation Security Group, THANK YOU! I know I cannot replace what you did for me but I have said prayers for you and your mobile unit that God and your guardian angels will always protect you and look out for you. To our beloved President Rodrigo Duterte, thank you for inspiring our officers. They are the stewards of the law and should honor the oath they have taken. To their Commanding Officer PSUPT Ramil Marcial Rebollos, thank you for instilling faith in our officers. We need more men like these 4 gentlemen in the force. We are all living in one country and what we need right now badly is trust, confidence and the civility to live amongst each other so that peace may reign. Thank you Lord for showing me that there is still hope for our country. MABUHAY PO KAYO mga Sir. To God Be The Glory!!!"
