Duterte will not protect cop who killed woman and son in Tarlac

 The Malacañang said on Monday that the President Rodrigo Duterte will not protect the policeman who shot dead woman and her son during an argument in Paniqui, Tarlac on Sunday, an incident that sparked widespread calls for an end to alleged police brutality.

Police Senior Master Sergeant Jonel Nuezca, 46 years old, shot Sonya Gregorio, 52 years old, and her son Frank Anthony, 25 years old, after they argued over the victims' use of a homemade cannon in their hometown Paniqui.

This incident was "not service-related," said spokesman Harry Roque said.

"We are condemning what happened there in Tarlac. That policeman cannot invoke any defense that the killing is linked to his official duty," Roque added.

We will investigate, file charges, try and punish that policeman -- no ifs, not buts. There will be justice because we saw evidence of what happened. The President will not protect that.
