It was a long and tiring dispersal of protesters outside the Batasang Pambansa where President Benigno Aquino III delivered his SONA July 22, 2013. Amid the clashes, a foreign protester berated a policeman, asking him why they were hurting people.
The officer stood his ground and said that he is a policeman whose job was to maintain peace and order. Suddenly the policeman cried. The foreigner kept on shouting at the officer. He was still crying. He was trying to hold his tears but he can't. (Excerpts from story by Rem Zamora)
