Metro News: Facebook helps nab fugitive

Pro tip: If you’re a fugitive, don’t go online.

Talisay City (Cebu) Police who had been looking for the suspect in the stabbing death of a retired prosecutor had been coming up empty. The suspect was not at his house, and he had not been showing up at the massage parlor where he worked.

But Reginald Masangkay, the late prosecutor’s youngest son, contacted the police and informed them the suspect was in San Carlos City to attend a fashion show.

Reginald learned of the suspect’s trip from a “shoutout” on his Facebook account.

With the information, Biñas and two police officers left for Negros Oriental and coordinated with the local policemen to arrest the suspect at 11 p.m. Saturday.

The suspect did not struggle upon his arrest, Biñas said.

So, yeah, future fugitives. Stay away from Facebook. And fashion shows.

  1. They better check Lacson’s Facebook account!!! HA!HA!HA!HA! If these idiots cannot know how Trining Failon was or killed and not charging anyone of obstruction of justice the Flipping englischtzes-speaking Flippers better stop looking for him.

    GALING PINOY!

  2. Why is it there are only few visitors of pro-government blogs? Even trolls do not want to take a peek in those blogs. Why, Oh, Why?

  3. Has anyone checked Lacson’s usage of his credit cards and ATM? Check the pattern of location of use? Tap his phones? Check cellphone records and triangulate cellsites’ use?

    Ano bah? Ako na ang matalino na-iwan sa Pilipinas ah! Bobo ba talaga ang mga Filipino?

  4. Has anyone put a tail on his immediate relatives? HAAAAY NAKU!!!! STOP THIS ENGLISCHTZES PERFECTION MADNESS!!!!! Math is important. Math is based on observation, nabbing patterns and eventually logic. It is no wonder they got fooled by PAGASA’s pronouncement that they beat NOOA in tracking Megi’s path!!!! Aaaaay Naku!!!!!

  5. 1. Lacson is a former top cop. He knows enough to cover his tracks.

    2. He’s probably smart enough not to use his own ATM/credit cards.

    3. There are thing called throwaway prepaid cellphone cards.

    4. Even if the NBI was doing all that, they wouldn’t tell you because of operational security.

    5. No one here is making any claims to perfect English. You’re the only guy harping on it.

    If not knowing proper English is such an issue for you, then, Jesus, take some classes. Don’t bring everyone else down over your shortcomings.

  6. @1Tamad, If Lacson were in America he’s nothing but below a rookie cop. Rookie cops in America do not make pagarparings to the public the weapons of crimes, intent, personalities involved so as not to jeopardize investigations.

    In the Philippines, peryodistas are only goot in analyzing what is wrong with politics NOT WHAT IS WRONG WITH AMPATUAN & TRINING FAILON FORENSIC INVESTIGATIONS.

    Because forensics is SCIENCE. Filipinos are very poor in science, Math and Logic. Politics is based on innuendoes and gossips. Innuendoes and gossips is easy. My sister can even do that and they all believe her.

  7. Filipinos are impervious to learning. They rather ban those who makes logical and compelling statement than learning from it.

    Filipinos forever will remain the same till I get married and have grandchildren.

  8. Tell you why I am totally against englishtezes snobbery, it alienates and marginalize people who cannot speak english well. That is totally discriminatory for Filipinos whose language has become 2nd language and english the purveyor of truth and IQ?

    Chinese scientists can barely speakengese goot englischtzes that idiot peryodistas is not even at par of chinese IQs. South Koreans are not goot in englischtzes, where does idiocy of english snobbery of Filipinos put them in economic perspective.

    Doncha get it at all? WILL SOMEONE WRITE ABOUT ENGLISHCTZES DISCRIMINATION AND ENGLISCHTZES SNOBBERY?

  9. >That is totally discriminatory for Filipinos whose language has become 2nd language and english the purveyor of truth and IQ?
    >Filipinos are very poor in science, Math and Logic.

    The Filipino language is ill-equipped to handle science, Math, and logic subjects. Unlike the French, our government and our society has failed to develop Filipino to keep it current with academic matters. That is why English is used as a medium of instruction and rule of thumb when judging for intelligence. And this is why we must learn to write and speak English well.

    Can the Filipino language catch up? Realistically, I don’t think so. It’s too late for that.

    Note I did not say we should speak English just like Americans. I think this is what you’re angry about: how Filipinos mock people who pronounce English differently, for example, because of their accents and “wrong” pronunciation. I agree with you on this.

    Different people all over the world speak English in a “funny” way. The Latinos, the Canadians, the various Europeans. Filipinos from different parts of the Filipinos also speak English in their own way. This should be no cause for discrimination and ridicule.

    I hate it when my mother ridicules, say, Visayans, because of their swapped vowel sounds. It’s petty to find humor in this. That is one of the reasons why I killed her.

    Sometimes, you have valuable contributions to the discussion, but mostly, you’re more noise than signal.

    Good day, Mr. Pacifico.

  10. Thank you M for reading my posts. I admit I go over the line “sometimes”. I also thank everyone here giving me enough slack to hang myself 🙂 . Truthfully, my intentional erroneous spellings and mangled grammar is to catch attention to those who discriminate and laugh at my fellow brown-skin-punked nose brothers and sisters who struggle with the language in the front-lines. How their opinions are waylaid just because they cannot speak fluently.

    Bayan can never make their opinions across because they got no class. They speak local dialects instead of english. They have valid gripes. Their “validity” is not there because of their not having precision in english word use and impeccable grammar.

    Well, If I get banned, it is my fault of getting the message across.

    we’re more equipped than you think. we suffer only because blindsided elitists like you exist.

    are you not aware that subtle things such as constantly using english when writing IS what imperialists/colonists/white supremacists use to keep us down and feeding at the palm of their hands while believing that we are indeed holding our freedom?

    MGA UNGAS.

    ako lang yata nakaintindi sa troll.

    bumalik kayong lahat sa grade 2 english at mag-aral ng ‘context clues’.
