Habang ang lahat ay sang-ayon at sumusunod sa mga ipinapatupad na mga panuntunan ng mga awtoridad at tunay na nagpapasasalamat sa kanilang walang kapagurang serbisyo upang mapagtagumapayan natin at maiwasan ang patuloy na pagkalat ng sakit sa bansa.   

Ngunit naging mainit din na debatihan sa mga netizen ang usaping ito dahil sa pakiwari ng iba ay tila may mga iilang mga pangyayari na hindi maiiwasang makuwestyon ang mga nasa awtoridad at posisyon sa pagpapatupad ng patas na patakaran.


Hinaing nila kung bakit kapagka mga ordinaryong tao lamang ang lumabag sa mga panuntunan ay naiibibigay agad ang karampatang kaparusahan ngunit kapag mga kilalang mga personalidad at opisyal ay hindi agad umano naapapanagot sa kanilang mga paglabag.

Katulad sa nangyaring pag-aresto ng isang matanda na si Mang Dodong isang fish vendor sa Caloocan dahil umano sa paglabag niya sa Enhanced Community Quarantine protocol.

"Mang Dodong, 58, is a simple fish vendor from brgy. 31 in Caloocan trying to cope and make an honest living to feed his wife and their adopted child during the covid pandemic, but he suddenly went missing for a week now," ayon sa post ni Vincet Go sa kanyan social media.

"But Dodong last seen on the night of May 7, was arrested at the Navotas fish port where he buys fish to sell, he was arrested for ECQ violation of not having a valid quarantine pass or travel pass in Navotas even though he had his quarantine pass in Caloocan where he lives,"

Covid lockdown day 61
May 14, 2020

Mang Dodong, 58, is a simple fish vendor from brgy. 31 in Caloocan trying to cope and make an honest living to feed his wife and their adopted child during the covid pandemic, but he suddenly went missing for a week now.

Kalookan Bishop David had asked me if it would be possible to help look for Dodong since he had been missing for several days already.

But Dodong last seen on the night of May 7, was arrested at the Navotas fish port where he buys fish to sell, he was arrested for ECQ violation of not having a valid quarantine pass or travel pass in Navotas even though he had his quarantine pass in Caloocan where he lives.

It was already a week since he was detained at the Navotas Sports Complex during the lockdown, nobody knew where he was. He did not own a cellphone nor did his wife Patring.


Since nobody knew what had happened, his release was neither processed. It was already late in the afternoon when we found out about his predicament, it was too late to bail him out, and he still needed some documents process his release.

There were already more than 500 of them detained at the enclosed facility for various ECQ violations, which is no longer an ideal number for physical distancing during this pandemic, but should be considered as a very dangerous and high risk situation for contagion.

At the detention facility, Dodong had no choice but to share food with others who took pity on him since nobody visited or brought him food to eat.


Today May 15, his family tried to bail him out from detention, bail set at P3,500.00 in Navotas but at the prosecutor's office they were told that they needed to provide a picture of their home which they did not have.

The family felt sad but left with no other option since the office working on a shorter period closes at 2 pm.

How can this kind of enforcement be justified for a simple man who only tried to make an honest living to feed his family during this trying times, who has already endured a week in detention and now have to wait two more days to be free.


Dodong told me that there are many more at the facility like him, their families still have no knowledge of their detention.
