Action-Packed Morning

Police Force, PNP, Philippine National Police

It was like a scene from a movie.

Just this morning, me and my wife witness a thief caught by a police. It was like an action scene from a movie. The police, wearing a civilian clothes, parked his motorcycle behind a bus. The bus was unloading passengers at that time. The police stood behind the bus, patiently waiting for the thief to strike. Then the police pulled out his gun from his jacket then ran and nabbed the thief. The thief was caught in the act. The brave police man pointed his gun to the thief, marking the end of the thief’s evildoing.

At first we got scared because the thief might run to our direction and a gun fight might start. Thank God for taking care of us, as well as the police and other civilians in the area. This is the second time that I saw the same incident (live!). The first was during my college days. I am thankful it did not get worse.

With what had happened, I suddenly recalled what Bro Eli Soriano taught us how a law officer should be. He said that authorities should be a terror or a threat to the evildoers as stated in Rom 13:3 (KJV)

For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same:

Good thing that in our times even though there are corrupt officials, there are still those that remain faithful to their sworn duties. I salute you, mister brave police man!
