Good news, FHM Nation - most of the men responsible for last week's kidnapping and robbery incident in EDSA have already been apprehended by authorities, and it turns out that the suspects are Quezon City policemen!
According to the Inquirer.net, seven of them are assigned to the La Loma police station in Quezon City as detectives, while the last one is assigned to the public safety battalion of the Quezon City Police District. It was Chief Insp. Joseph De Vera, owner of the Toyota Hiace Commuter Van that was captured in the viral photo, who gave away the suspects' names.
De Vera insists that they carried out an antinarcotics operation against their two victims, Ustadz Samanodin Abdul Gafur and Camal Mama, who were employees of a Lanao del Sur-based contractor of the Department of Public Works and Highways.
The victims, however, claim that they were abducted at gunpoint and then brought to the La Loma police station, where they were held for several hours. They were eventually released by the suspects, but not without taking their P2 million, which was payment for the heavy equipment they were supposed to buy in Manila.
Press play on the video below to know more about the incident.

We don't know about you, but we don't feel so secure in the presence of our armed forces anymore. We know it's unfair to assume that all police officers are corrupt, but with shenanigans like the one we just saw, can you blame us for losing our trust?
Here, in fact, are eight cases of Pinoy policemen behaving badly on the job. Shame on you, officers!
Remember the police officer who bombed a Newman Goldliner passenger bus in Makati back in 2011? PO2 Arnold Mayo's unexplained antic ended up killing five innocent commuters, including one his colleagues. Why the hell are you even carrying that thing around, officer?

What about the Quezon City Police District officer who was caught on camera riding a motorcycle without a helmet? Isn't there a motorcycle helmet act that forbids motorcycle riders from doing such a thing? We hope this guy paid the P1,500 fine!
