A netizen who goes by the handle “Queen Charlotte” on her Facebook account narrated that their kind-hearted Barangay Captain ordered her brought home instead of being arrested.
Queen Charlotte said that it was already past curfew hours when she arrived at her usual drop-off point.
She said she was really getting ready to walk the rest of the way home, which is some distance from where she was.

Queen Charlotte said that without warning, a barangay patrol car stopped by. At the time, she thought she was going to be arrested, being outside her home past curfew hours.
To her surprise, the driver asked her to ride the car so he can drop her off to a gasoline station where he was going after all.
After reaching the gas station, she again started to walk but then, the barangay patrol again returned and stopped beside her. The driver was different at this time.
The driver then asked her where she was going and she answered up to the boundary. “Sakay na po kayo. Wala na po masasakyan eh. Nakita po kase kayo ni Kapitan, naglalakad. Naghatid po siya pagkain eh,” the unidentified barangay patrol driver told her.
“Talaga kuya? Buti di ako pinahuli ni Kap. Nasa labas ako, curfew na,” Queen Charlotte inquired, to which the driver said that he’s not there to arrest her but to bring her home.
The netizen was able to arrive home safely and immediately posted on social media her thanks to Barangay Captain Jojo Gawaran. She also narrated the entire story in her post.
“Hindi ako tinanong Kung botante ako. I was beyond amazed na pinansin ako ni Kap. Lakas ko po pala sa inyo,” Queen Charlotte ended.

In recent days, social media was filled with negative reports about barangay officials and personnel arresting individuals for violating curfew hours. While in many cases, the arrests were appropriate and based on guidelines, there were some that many netizens saw as out of the ordinary and quickly became subject of online bashing. An example of this is the student in Quezon City who was arrested by barangay tanods even if he was just outside his house to get the food items delivered by a rider.
Famous personalities even questioned the idea of having a curfew. Recently, actor and celebrity chef Marvin Agustin took to Twitter to express his bafflement regarding the new curfew being strictly implemented in NCR. The actor explained that he was confused about the curfew and questioned why a curfew was being enforced at night when masses of people are still going out during the day. The entrepreneur continued on to also jokingly ask in his tweet if the COVID-19 virus was on nightshift hence the curfew. While some netizens agreed with the actor's sentiments, some netizens explained the reason behind the implementation of a curfew.
More recently, several Pinoy celebrities took to social media to express their sentiments against the re-implementation of ECQ in some areas in Luzon. Some of the celebrities made their feelings known with just a one-word-post, while others reminded everyone that the 2022 elections is just around the corner. Others revealed their readiness in helping those who would be severely affected by the ECQ. One celebrity lamented that what is happening is like déjà vu.
