- Mother of dead Mark Angelo Concepcion, who was alleged to have fought the police, made an earnest appeal to Duterte
- She asked the president why those who are killed are the poor ones
- She also said that if Duterte is indeed the "father of the nation," then she's hoping her appeal would touch his heart
The mother of the alleged pusher who was killed by police made an earnest appeal to President Rodrigo Duterte.
GMA reported that the mother called out the manner by which the President's men carry out their jobs.
"Hindi makatwiran ang ginagawa ng mga tao mo (What your men are doing is not just)."
According to the policemen who killed her son, Mark Angelo Concepcion, he fought back, which was why he was killed.
The mom however does not believe the declaration of the police.
She said that her son is afraid of policeman. She also said that he is likewise afraid of fights.
Her message to the President was:
"Mahal na pangulo, tao lang kami, mahirap pero hindi makatwiran ang ginagawa ng mga tao mo. May mas matataas pero pinangangalagaan ng iba diyan na nakatataas, hindi nahuhuli, 'di napapatay. Pero kung sino yung maliit, 'yon ang pinapatay nila (Our dear President, we are just humans, poor ones, but what your men did was unjust. There are people higher, coddled by other higher officilas, not arrested, not killed. But as for those who are poor, those are the ones that they kill)," said the grieving mother.
She ended her appeal with, "Sana maantig ang puso mo kung totoong tao ka, kung totoong ama ka ng sambayanan (May this touch your heart if you're a real person, if you truly are the father of the nation)."
Mothers do love their children, but the mom of this baby left him for dead.
