I have always showed respect for the Philippine police. I have always been treated good by them. When riding a bus and was stopped at a security site in Davao city, I never had a problem. Most of the time they didn't even search me. then going into the malls the security rarely search me but I show them respect and they felt it from me.

That is all it takes!!!

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!!
I think the point here art is that his wife/partner could have gone out and parlayed/paralysed the situation with the law, sorry sir, our bad and it will never happen again and got off with a warning and from my readings "may be wrong" the cop initially warned the poor lady breaking quarantine for not wear a mask and she promptly ran inside the house and fuelled the fire. The arrogant booze infused house head dug his own grave.
Yes I agree the law officers there not only took this mans abuse and wrath but were also told how to do/conduct their profession whilst bragging he employed 80 Filipinos on an expired tourist visa.
As you said, goodbye.

Cheers, Steve,

I don't think any place requires an arrest warrant when the police witness a crime or have probable cause to believe that one exists.

You rob a bank, does the cop let you walk out with the cash because he didn't have a warrant?

You drive under the influence, did the cop need a warrant to stop you and arrest you for that?

I feel I've done my best to warn my fellow expats to stay away from making YouTube videos, especially free food kitchens (donations) for kids and poor people and doing the job of DSWD, getting caught on video like this drunken shirtless expat (shirt is also required when outside your property) and posting negative comments on any Philippine Government employee or office, Facebook as an example.

Working on a tourist Visa (wrong Visa) or operating a business, you will be deported married with kids or not.

I looked and only found this.

https://cnnphilippines.com/news/2018...an-arrest.html

Which refers to a local QC ordinance.

I also found this reference from 2018

https://www.rappler.com/nation/19487...ce-quezon-city

The QC Council passed City Ordinance 2623-2017 banning residents from roaming naked in public places. It was authored by Council Ranulfo Ludovica and is anchored on "propriety and social behavior that must be acceptable and morally correct and proper."

At the very least you can count on social disapproval. Sometimes the police will impose their own ideals of morality without regard for any specific law under a general ordinance on causing disruption on something similar, just like cops everywhere.

I have also noticed no shirtless bodies unless on the beach/swimming pool, never thought about it until now so the penny has dropped. Thanks for the links Rick.
Sorry to go off topic.

Cheers, Steve.

For a time it was enforced but I see men without the shirts again and probably not a law along with drinking next to the roads and for time it was enforced in Laguna, I think smoking in public also.
