Totoo ba ‘yan? Law student mocks PNP’s plain view doctrine

Sharing is caring!

Law students could not help but mock the Philippine National Police’s recent failure. This transpired after a viral news item from GMA’s 24 Oras surfaced online and it showed how the policemen applied the plain view doctrine.

The abogado aspirants said that this is just a hilarious representation of how the said doctrine can fail. As allowed by the doctrine, media reports showed a policeman inspecting a package he deemed as contraband in a taxi’s trunk.

Upon seeing green leaves, the policeman immediately assumed that it’s marijuana and seized the item. He immediately placed the citizen under custody but it will turn out as a wrongful assumption on the part of the police. Further investigation showed that it was just dried pieces of “gabi”, contrary to their claims.

These are some of the best reactions from abogado aspirants and netizens:
