It seems like netizens believe that the most effective way to air out complaints about misbehaving government officials is through posting videos of them on the popular social networking site, Facebook.
Over the past few years, people have posted hundreds of videos on Facebook featuring government officials who seem to be using their authority as an excuse to hurt or humiliate seemingly innocent civilians.
On Monday, Fenbruary 20, 2017, a Facebook user who goes by the name Aryann Suarez posted a short video of a mayor who was caught slapping a civilian on the street. According to the Facebook user, the civilian got involved in a traffic dispute. This apparently caught the attention of the mayor in the video who happened to be close by when it happened.
The video was accompanied by the following caption:
“Naturingan kang mayor imbes na ayusin mo ang gulo ng dalawang nagbanggaan pero hindi kc nanampal kpa hindi cya ang may kasalanan mayor oh kahit pa may kasalanan cya hindi dapat ganyan ginawa mo,sana inayus mo.limang beses mong sinampal pero isang beses lng nakuhanan ng video kc lumingon ang bodyguard nya.mayor yan ng gamu kawawa c kuya ang daming tao nakakita sa ginawa mo hindi ka dapat naging mayor.
Lasing po c dyan si mayor
The Facebook user also claimed that the mayor was drunk when the incident happened.
So far, the only information we have about the mayor is his name, based on the Facebook user’s post.
