The sudden, brutal killing of a mother and son, caught on camera late Sunday in the Philippines, has cast a harsh new light on the rampant abuse of authority by police under President Rodrigo Duterte.
The plainclothes police officer, identified as Senior Master Sgt. Jonel Nuezca, abruptly shot Sonya Gregorio, 52, and Frank Anthony Gregorio, 25, after an argument in Tarlac, a province about 80 miles north of Manila.
The incident on Sunday was recorded by a witness in a graphic video. It showed Nuezca pull out a pistol and shoot the gray-haired mother in the head and then her son as they clutched each other, before shooting them each a second time. The video quickly went viral,
Philippine news media reported that the confrontation in Tarlac became heated as Nuezca moved to arrest Frank Gregorio for using an improvised noisemaker — a small cannon made out of bamboo or tin cans — typically used during new year celebrations. His mother wrapped her arms around him so he couldn’t be taken away.
“I don’t care!” Sonya Gregorio answered, mocking her.
“You son of a whore,” Nuezca said. “Do you want me to finish you off right now?” He then shot them both as witnesses screamed and the clip was cut short.
Presidential spokesman Harry Roque condemned the killings, which he said were “not service-related.” Nuezca had been off duty and visiting his home in Tarlac, away from his assignment in Metro Manila.
“That policeman will be punished — no ifs, no buts,” Roque said. “The president will not protect him.”
Tupac Shakur had been shot before. The tattooed, urban poet and self-identified thug was a central figure in the East Coast-West Coast hip-hop rivalry. The first Tupac shooting —November 30, 1994— left the rapper with five bullet wounds, including two in the head. Los Angeles-based Shakur pointed his finger at a number of New York rappers, including Sean Combs and the Notorious B.I.G. He would later release a number of scathing rhymes against both Combs and Biggie, including one in which he claimed to have slept with Biggie's wife.
On September 7, 1996, Tupac Shakur attended a Mike Tyson boxing match at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, then got into the passenger seat of Death Row Records CEO Suge Knight’s car. At a stoplight, a white Cadillac pulled up next to Knight’s car rolled down its windows and fired multiple rounds into Shakur’s passenger seat. Shakur was taken to the hospital, where he died of internal bleeding after six days. A few months later, while waiting at a Los Angeles stoplight, the Notorious B.I.G. met the same fate. Thanks to fanatical conspiracy theories, uncooperative witnesses and shoddy police investigations, neither murder case has ever been solved.
Shakur’s last album, Makaveli: The Don Killuminati/The 7 Day Theory, was released a month after his death. The title referenced Niccolo Machiavelli, the Italian philosopher who was rumored to have faked his own death (this has been largely disproved) and whose works Shakur studied while serving an eleven-month prison sentence in 1994. So did Tupac Shakur really die, or does he still walk among us, cloaked in a new identity?

Pepsi paloma, a Filipino American who was born as "Delia Emmanuel Smith" stared in her first movie Brown Emmanuel, when she was only 14. While promoting the movie several month's later she was gang raped by the three well-known Philippine TV personalities.
Pepsi Paloma was only 14 years old when she and another actress named Guada Guarin reported that they were drugged in a bar and brought to a room at the Sulo Hotel in Quezon City where they were "gang raped” by Joey De Leon, Vic Sotto and Richie D’Horsie, the comedian hosts of the popular TV show "Eat Bulaga!”
Pepsi sought the help of then Defense Secretary Juan Ponce Enrile who referred her to Rene Cayetano, the lead attorney of the ACCRA law offices, who agreed to represent Paloma for free. But while Cayetano was preparing to file the formal complaint with the police authorities, Pepsi Paloma was suddenly reported missing.”
Three years later, after staring in a movies when she was only 17, she committed suicide.
After her rescue, Pepsi reported that Tito Sotto visited her and "coerced” her (by reportedly placing a pistol on the table in front of her) into signing an "affidavit of desistance” for her not to press rape charges against Sotto’s brother and his cohorts.
In exchange for the dismissal of the rape charges, Joey De Leon, Vic Sotto and Richie D’Horsie issued a public apology to Pepsi Paloma which was published in the People’s Journalon October13. 1982: "We hope that you will not allow the error we have committed against you to stand as a stumbling block to that future which we all look forward to. We therefore ask you to find it in your heart to pardon us for the wrong which we have done against you.”
Nearing her 18 birthday she committed suicide? Or was she prevented in reviving the case upon reaching her legal age; as the desistance was signed when she was only 14 years old, and there was no legal guardian present.
