A netizen also shared that the Miranda Rights were only read to them hours after the violent arrest.

PNP, pwede palang to follow ang Miranda Rights? Sang doktrina to nasusulat?!?!?

Hours after the arrest?!? This is a clear breach of the protesters’ constitutional rights. Make them liable! And I thought they were taught Criminal Law and Criminal Procedures back in their respective Criminology Schools? 🤬 https://t.co/9rwcfxNRhU
