Regardless he was clearly an ahole and in my opinion has tarnished decent expats in the eyes of this countries people, though quiet and extremely tolerant, incidents such as this add up and make our work harder to be accepted here.
How would you feel if this happened in your own country? I know I would be piss*d.

Hey, only my lowly opinion but I believe with what happened on the street with this loudmouth and a very tolerant law enforcer? He got what he deserved as did the officer involved and a lesson to visitors in this or any country, abide by the law.

Cheers, Steve.

And a fourth, populous opinion/sway then fifth, final judgement in a courtroom.

As I said Steve, the expat was wrong and deserves any punishment coming his way. However, I'm guessing you didn't see the video of the cop wrestling the expat to the ground and trying to twist his arms behind his back to arrest him, on the expats drive just outside the front door with wife screaming at the cop begging him to stop as the guy has a bad back. The video I believe you saw and the one being shared by press and media doesn't show that and without that clip, you would naturally assume that the cop was being tolerant. He wasn't THAT tolerant, and the cop had no right to enter the guys private property without a warrant. All the cop had to do was walk away, having given the guy a warning, and issued a formal complaint against him.
As for this happening in our own countries, well I can assure you that the cops in UK have to deal with far worse than this from foreigners living there.

At some point the cop was pushed to far and had lost face. He had to do whatever was necessary to regain face. Anyone living here as long as this guy supposedly has should have learned this by now.

Yes the cop was wrong in taking it too far but the guy was also wrong in the first place in not following the rules, in the second place for not obeying the rules when reminded and in the third place for being an a$$hat about it.

Moral of the story is if you have a bad back, don't be like that guy.

The guy didn't break any rules, it was his helper that was watering the plants without a face mask that the cops were complaining about. The foreigner made the mistake of trying to argue with the cops rather than just pay the fine.
The moral of the story is........we are foreigners and as such the odds are seriously stacked against us, so think very carefully before arguing your rights. Oh and yeah, don't get drunk before doing so!!

I saw both lots of footage Dave, perhaps the cop should have stopped and got a warrant before arresting him on his property. The Spaniard clearly broke quarantine law while hurling abuse at the cop whilst on the road, no mask all on the first video, enough for a warrant as he was in a public place.
Really he only has himself to blame especially if he was an over stayed alien he should have, could have, too late, played things differently, lay low and as most of us do let the better half deal it.

Cheers, Steve.

This guy was a d*ck, I could quote some biblical references but I am non practicing. I watched the footage yet again and discovered that his wife also broke Quarantine, they have children it appears,,,,,,,,, now without a father.
There is a very valid lesson to be learnt here for the Filipino people (some gloating) and particularly expats.

While I drink,,,, apparently I am a good drunken man, I bother no one and they leave me alone, we have a good laugh, then I snore, some people?,,,,, what can I say, hey OMO.

Cheers, Steve.

I watched this video. His wife tried several times to get her husband to shut up and leave matters alone. If he had only paid the 1000 pesos fine and apologized to the officers everything would have been fine.

This Spaniard use terrible language towards this cop. The cop could have taken him down several times when he was out on the street. I really think these 2 cops used a lot of patience with this guy.

If off, I don't think the officers needed a warrant just to talk to this guy. When he walked out into the street they could have taken him in immediately but they were really being patient with him.

GOODBYE Mr. Parra!!
