Street children caught sniffing solvent while on a taxi, then steal from motorists

  • Netizen posted photos of kids seated on top of a taxi while sniffing solvent.
  • People questioned why there were no traffic enforcers to reprimand the kids who were scaring off motorists.

Shocking stories of street children committing crime on the streets had been spreading in social media websites, and another one has again gone viral.

Facebook user Leonard Smith Yazar shared photos of two street children sitting on top of a taxi. He said that he was travelling along EDSA North-bound when he encountered the boys.



He said that motorists were telling them to go down, but instead of following them, the kids got mad instead. Aside from sitting on top of cars, they also stole from a L300 and fought with the driver and passenger.

When they reached the tunnel, it was discovered that they were not alone, and there were other street children waiting for them.

Leonard also called out the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority and urged them to take action on the situation.

Kaninang hapon habang binabagtas ko ang edsa northbound papalapit na kami sa underpass sa ayala. Yang dalawang batang yan na nasa pic eh nakikita namin na sumasampa sa mga taxi habang traffic. At habang humihithit ng solvent may mga sumisita na mga rider ng motor pero inaaway din ng dalawang yan. Pati mga sasakyan na L300 na fb dinudukot nila sa loob kung ano man madukot nila at inaaway ang driver at pahinante. Ang lalakas ng loob dahil pag dating sa dulo bahagi ng tunnel ay may mga kasama din sila.. paging MMDA di ba po may cctv sa underpass from ayala to buendia Northbound. di nyo po ba ito nakikita kawawa naman yung taxi driver pati yung sakay natatakot. tumingin sa akin yung driver napapailing na lang dahil pag binabaan pa nya ang mga yan baka pagtulungan pa siya. Sana man lang kung talagang naka monitor kayo umaksyon na agad kayo dahil sa sobrang traffic kahit lakarin nyo pa yan mula sa base nyo sa orense maaabutan nyo pa mga yan.

Netizens reacted to the photos, blaming the MMDA for not taking action.

Robin Borines suggested that people should just run over the kids.

Wala nang salitaan pa!ibalibag sa kalsada yan tapos sagasaan!

Roland Patrick Rosellas Manansala questioned the absence of traffic enforcers in the area.

Ohh asan na mga masisipag na MMDA ito talagang nakaka abala sa edsa ayaw nyo Kilusan HOY Gadget adik , Nebrija ano nah???
Other netizens even said to just kill the kids because they will just repeatedly come back even if they get apprehended.
Patayin nalang kasi. Wala na eh wala ng kumikilos. Hindi inaaksyonan. Dami dami na nag popost. Kahit gamutin yan wala babalik at babalik yan. Para di na tularan ng iba. Gawan ng sample. Patayin nalang.

A Facebook user said that if ever the kids get into an accident, the driver will still be blamed.
Tapos kapag nasagasaan ang mga salot eh kasalanan pa ng driver tapos ibabash pa ang driver 😊
Flordeliza Mojal questioned if this is a way to ruin the current administration.
Ndi kya pakawala ng mga dilawan itong mga ito? Nakakahalata nko eh! Parang sunud sunod ang mga ganyang pangyayari…hmmm…papaisip lang nman!
Joan Sta Ana urged a revision to the law protecting minors from getting jailed.
I think there should be some revisions in the original law protecting thia kids. Kasi sinasamantala n nila ung batas. Lalo n ngayon magpapasko so paano un kami mgaadjust sa mga batang to?
