    hindi naman kasi by accident lang na marami ang napapatay, it was intentional on the part of the police para makapagpabango sila ng pangalan sa panggulo, at 101% may mga baon na silang sachet ng drugs para itanim sa mga napatay nila, at sasabihin nanlaban or pinaputukan sila ng suspect, ginagawa nilang bobo ang mamamayan sa krimen na pinlano nila.
