- A day before the burial, his blood pressure climbed up to 180/100, a level which is already very high

- Gregorio needed to undergo a medical checkup but has rested and recuperated
Florentino Gregorio, the husband and father of the Tarlac shooting victims, Lola Sonya Gregoro and Frank Anthony, respectively, suffered from high blood pressure a day before the set date for the burial.
A Twitter post of Adrian Ayalin (@adrianayalin) showed that Gregorio's blood pressure shot up to dangerous levels of 180/100.
WebMD noted that some of the symptoms that would be experienced when the blood pressure goes up this high are blurred vision, difficulty breathing, chest pain, dizziness, severe headache and even shortness of breath.
Gregorio needed to undergo a medical checkup, then he briefly met with those who were sympathizing with them, then took a rest as he would need each ounce of strength to bring his dead wife and son to their final resting place.
Issues have hounded the Philippine National Police (PNP). Before the Gregorio issue, many stories concerning "police brutality" have made rounds online. Issues concerning the police and how they deal with people have also been a hot topic in social media. A case in point was that of Corporal Winston Ragos.
The Philippine Army Chief already ordered the launch of an investigation on the death of Corporal Winston Ragos who, with his arms up in the air, and upon bringing it down was shot by policemen at a checkpoint. His sling bag did not contain any gun or any weapon, as per the statement of his relative. The PA, on the other hand, as per its statement, it also mentioned that the wounds of a soldier are not merely physical but also mental.
An incident in Quiapo Church also caught the attention of social media users. Two police officers took away the protest materials while the mass was ongoing.
