Rolando Empaynado is a 41-year-old deaf-mute PWD dishwasher at a restaurant in Poblacion, San Isidro. He had an altercation with Orlando “Morly” Tolentino, a Barangay Chairman from another barangay who was friends with ‘Chairman Toothpick’, the Barangay Chairman of Poblacion.

Last Thursday, September 26 at 10:30 PM, Morly went to the restaurant and pulled Rolando from the spot where he was washing dishes, bringing him to the back area. Unfortunately for him but fortunately for Rolando, that area actually had a CCTV – and his actions were filmed by the cameras.

Despite Rolando pleading for him to stop, Morly wanted to incite fear in the PWD and continued harming him. Restaurant employees tried to seek help from the police station located nearby, but the family alleged that the police only went to the restaurant on the fourth time the staff sought their help.

But the cops still could not stop Morly, leading the staff to find his friend, Chairman Toothpick. Thankfully, Morly listened to his friend but the latter later left Rolando at the restaurant and did not report the incident to the police. The staff had to call Rolando’s dad, Ricardo Empaynado, to get him from the restaurant.

At the police station, however, the cops allegedly refused to accept the blotter, telling Ricardo that the injuries were ‘slight’ and they should just report it to the barangay. With the barangay chairman being Morly’s friend, Ricardo and his other son, Roel Empaynado, decided to seek help from Raffy Tulfo.

It turned out Morly is well-connected and is the first cousin of the mayor, Vina E. Lopez.

Despite numerous attempts by the Tulfo team to call the chairman, the chief of police, and the mayor using difference numbers, the calls were either canceled or the other person on the line pretended not to hear a word of what they are saying.

This led Tulfo to escalate the matter to Rep. Narciso Bravo, Jr. who chairs the Committee on Public Order and Safety and DILG Usec. Martin Diño.

Old Scavenger Goes Viral as She Takes Her Dogs While She Looks for Recyclable Trash

A poor scavenger who only had her dogs as her treasures recently went viral for taking these precious pets along as she roams the city to look for recyclable trash. Netizens expressed love over the photo, saying that this old lady truly loves her pets.

On Facebook page Marikina News (the original), netizen Joyce Garban shared a photo of Nanay Marina Galiya as she pushes her makeshift bicycle cart filled with sacks and boxes of trash she collected around the city.

With that much stuff on her sidecar, Nanay Marina was having a difficult time pushing the vehicle along, but she plods on. Closely following Nanay Marina are two of her favorite pets, her dogs who loyally accompany her wherever she goes.

According to Joyce, she asked Nanay Marina why she brings the dogs along and was told that the old lady feels that the dogs would be lonely if they are left in the house.

When asked about her situation, Nanay Marina said that she’s alright but Joyce feels that it would be better if the old lady could find help to improve how she collects the trash she has to bring to the junk  shop. A cart she could push would have been better because this one offered her very limited view of the road.

Joyce hopes that in sharing Nanay Marina’s story, the old scavenger could find the help she needed. Perhaps some netizens might be able to give the old lady a cart or possibly the mayor could provide her with another form of livelihood. At her age, it is difficult for her to walk so far to find trash that she could bring to the junk shop.

God bless, Nanay Marina.

Netizens Take Side of Stepdad Reported to Tulfo after Hitting Stepson

More often than not, people reported to Tulfo also receive anger from netizens who express displeasure over what these ‘bad folks’ did; however, netizens took the side of a stepdad who was reported after hitting his stepson. How could that be?

Michael and Lovely de Ocampo, 18 and 20 years old respectively, went to Raffy Tulfo in Action to complain about their stepdad, Samuel Sampang.

According to Michael, his stepdad is always angry and him; but the altercation erupted when he got ice cream from his mom’s room while still wearing his shoes. Samuel got angry that he entered the room with his shoes, but things escalated when the younger man talked back.

The two wished that their stepdad would leave the house, especially because he and their mother Dess Bautista also have their issues. According the two, and later confirmed by Dess, Samuel would sometimes leave the house for days without telling them where he is.

But as Tulfo asked Samuel’s side, he explained that he simply got angry at Michael for being lazy. Lovely and Dess both admitted that Michael is a bit on the lazy side, but everyone agreed that it was still not right for Samuel to hit him.

With that, Tulfo admonished the young man and asked him to respect his stepfather. Also, he encouraged Michael to man up and become more responsible.

As breadwinner of the family, you have to provide him with respect as well,” Tulfo told Michael. “Act like a man; no longer as a child.

Watch Part 1 video:

The Tulfo team accompanied the family to the Barangay Hall of Guadalupe Nuevo in Makati. There, they met with Hon. Bernadette Sese, the Chairman.

But Michael no longer wanted to push through with case, admitting that he and Samuel were finally able to talk it out at home. They still signed papers at the barangay so that the fight won’t happen again. Moreover, Samuel was also asked not to ‘disappear’ again – and this was included in the agreement they signed at the barangay hall.

Then, the family invited the Tulfo team to their house where they showed the fruits of Samuel and Dess’ labor since they met and built the business together. The family also recalled the happy moments they spent when they first met, with Michael admitting that he had actually been the one that first got close with Samuel.

Good Samaritan Seeks Help after Viral Traffic Enforcer Files Cyberbullying Case at Barangay

Melodina Manalo was just trying to help when a neighbor got sick and needed to be rushed to the emergency room; but she’s now facing a cyberbullying and slander case at the barangay after the traffic enforcer who stopped them went viral and got angry at her for uploading his video.

According to Melodina, Tatay Magno had complained of stomachache and wanted to be taken to the ER. Feeling concerned that something might happen to her old neighbor, Melodina asked help from a taxi driver who was about to go home at the time.

The taxi agreed to rush Tatay Magno to the ER and quickly made a U-turn to reach the old man since his family could not carry him across the street because he’s heavy; he also couldn’t walk because he has no legs.

San Mateo traffic enforcer Eleno Labramonte II saw the taxi make a U-turn; it so happened that the area is a no U-turn spot. As the taxi moved, the traffic enforcer caught up and asked the driver to hand over his license.

The driver explained that they were rushing Tatay Magno to the ER; the family and Melodina also said the same thing, but Labramonte refused to listen. He told them he knows how a patient being rushed to the ER looks; he claims that Tatay Magno is just being taken there for check-up.

Labramonte refused to let the driver take Tatay Magno to the hospital as he confiscated his license for the violation. Though he called for an ambulance, it took about 30 minutes before it arrived. Sadly, the family lost the patient.

Despite the loss of the patient that Labramonte said wasn’t an emergency case, he refused to apologize. He even had the gall to file the cyberbullying case against Melodina who sought help from Raffy Tulfo over the situation.

According to Melodina, she was just trying to help but now faces the cyberbullying and slander cases at the barangay while also feeling deeply hurt that they lost the old man.

What’s worse, the Brgy. Captain of San Mateo, Hector Reyes, wanted her to apologize to Labramonte. This led Melodina to seek help from Tulfo.

Hangad natin na makatulong tayo sa kapwa natin tao. Puro tayo Pilipino eh; hindi naman tayo ibang tao. Dapat tulongan natin yung dapat tulongan; hindi pahirapan,” she said in the end.
