Justice system collapse? Netizens turn to Raffy Tulfo rather than courts for quick action on Tarlac double murder
The double murder incident involving a Parañaque cop in Tarlac exposed one of many flaws in the Philippine justice system.
On top of glaring police brutality and arrogance, many netizens sought justice through TV and radio host Raffy Tulfo rather than the Department of Justice of the local courts for immediate response on the bloody incident.
Many were tagging his show, “Raffy Tulfo in Action,” on viral videos that showed how Parañaque policeman Jonel Nuezca shot Sonya Gregorio and her son Frank point blank and in front of his own daughter. For some, it was alarming.
“Opened Facebook and saw a post about the murder. You know what’s alarming? They’re tagging raffy tulfo. A lot of people think he IS the judicial system than govt bodies,” netizen @albertraqueno said. “Who do you call when the police murders? Raffy tulfo apparently. A sad reminder of our fucked up country.”

True enough, Tulfo’s name landed on the top trending topics on Twitter on Monday morning as more people were enraged about the Tarlac incident.
“Our judicial system is so fucked up to the point that people in the comments call for Raffy Tulfo In Action, rather than the Commission on Human Rights or other government bodies, because they can’t even rely on the police anymore,” another user said.
What's worse, is that our judicial system is so fucked up to the point that people in the comments call for Raffy Tulfo In Action, rather than the Commission on Human Rights or other government bodies, because they can't even rely on the police anymore.

Can't blame why people are tagging Raffy Tulfo in this issue, he can give justice just in span of days unlike filing and waiting for your case to move forward for weeks, months or even years. This really shows how f*cked up our justice system is.#StopTheKillingsPH
