Parañaque is known as one of the most populous cities in the Metro. This is largely due to the fact that it is the location of domestic and international airports, the Baclaran Church, and various shopping centers. Apart from that, it is home to exclusive subdivisions as well. However, with its large population comes disadvantages.
The city is known to have lots of criminals and notorious people because shanties and informal shelters dominate sidewalks, supposedly vacant lots, and riversides. As such, many individuals are advised to be extremely careful, especially when plying the streets of Parañaque at night.
One such netizen detailed how the mayor of Parañaque and its officials should address the problem of street children along the road. Facebook user Joseph Tan narrated that they should look out for the street children throwing stones located under the flyover of Coastal Road corner Roxas Boulevard.
He specifically warned the local residents of the city about the notorious children because according to him, their car almost got hit by the stones being thrown by the minors. Tan said that vehicles coming from the airport should be careful since they might be victims of the modus.
He also added that the minor above has been identified with the name of Joshua Javier. Tan said that the kid would just be released by the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) instead of being apprehended.
He appealed to their city mayor, Edwin Olivarez, to be proactive in dealing with the street children for the sake of the motorists’ safety.
He also included his post with several hashtags and one of the said “#ingatsanambabatongsasakyan” and “#ingatsaliniswindshieldmodus,” which indicated that his encounter was probably a modus thought of by the children under the flyover.
