Police found abusing prisoners in a secret cell behind a bookshelf

Police found abusing prisoners in a secret cell behind a bookshelf

Police corruption and brutality don’t just happen in North America, it also happens in Asia. If you think Asians are meek, quiet, non-confrontational, etc– then you’re wrong. Just recently, a police station in Manila, Philippines made international news for having a secret cell where a dozen unbooked inmates are being kept and abused.

1.) 12 inmates were discovered by the Commission on Human Rights

The worst part? It was a surprise inspection and when someone knocked on the bookshelf inside the station, cries for help were heard from behind. This is what they saw.

2.) They slept, ate, bathe, and used the bathroom in the cramped space

There’s no lighting and ventilation inside the cells. The two urinals inside weren’t functioning, so the inmates are forced to do their business in plastic bags.

3.) They said they were arrested without being charged.

One lady even mentioned that she was arrested with her husband inside their home and didn’t even get an explanation as to why they were being detained!

4.) They have to pay to be freed.

And no, that’s not payment for bail. It’s payment for those who arrested them. If they can come up with the requested amount (usually around $800-$4000, keep in mind that the minimum salary in the Philippines is $300 per month) they can get out unscathed– if they don’t, they have to stay.

5.) It’s an exploitation of a crime free-for-all that the president is promoting

These policemen are exploiting the president’s abusive war against drugs by arresting these people under the guise of being suspected drug peddlers. They randomly select folks from the poorest parts of the area and arrest them, knowing that they can easily extort money from these people.

6.) In reality, only the poorest of the poor suffer.

The chief of police said that he’s keeping the prisoners behind the bookshelf to “maximize” the station’s space. Sure– like that’s a believable excuse.

7.) It’s so easy to forget that police officers should be respected when they pull off antics like this.

Look at how you can only stretch one arm to reach the other end of the cell. Now, imagine being stuck in that 1 meter by 3 meter space for days on end with 11 other people.

8.) Insult to injury, maybe even death.

Another inmate told the media how he was beaten up by policemen before being shoved inside the cell. He said that the was told that if he couldn’t produce money, he would be killed.

9.) Pay up or get tortured or killed.

Media Source

These people that they’re extorting money from don’t have regular day jobs. They’re the powerless folks of the city, and also the easiest to extort. They pawn their belongings off and go deep into debt just so they wouldn’t be killed by corrupt cops.

10.) This isn’t really a new thing.

Media Source

The war on drugs that’s been happening in the Philippines is being lauded by some people, but is being heavily criticized by numerous media outlets internationally because of the fact that there is no due process. Even if there’s no proof of you being a drug user or peddler, you can get killed in a blink of an eye.

11.) The rich can go free, the poor can die for all they care

The people on top of the drug hierarchy can get easily freed, sometimes they’re even buddies with the president. But if you’re at the bottom of the food chain, you can experience things like this with no assurance if you’ll still walk free.

12.) And those who are supposed to protect the people are feared.

Media Source

Police officials are the ones that get the most advantage out of this. They can request for any amount of money and whoever they arrested will certainly clamor to gather the funds just so they don’t have to get tortured and killed.

13.) Nobody really gets relieved of their job even if they’re caught red-handed.

Media Source

They just get transferred to a different department or station. So, the news about the chief of this police station being relieved of his duties is complete bull– he was instead transferred to the main office of the police district to avoid a scandal.

14.) Innocence isn’t a valid excuse

Media Source

If they want to arrest you, they will arrest you. Much worse than what’s happening in North America, because with this one, there’s blatant proof of what’s happening but no one in their right mind has the guts to speak up.

15.) In the end, no one wins.

Media Source

The war on drugs is just a stupid ploy for a potential dictatorship. Police officers are celebrating it because they can finally be their brutal selves. They’ve waited years to show what kind of dirty, scum-eating pigs they truly are over in the Philippines.
