Davao – Smoking cigarettes can be dangerous

By Manny Piñol

A local tourist who was in Davao Town for the duration of the celebration of the Kadayawan Pageant and brazenly defied the city’s demanding anti-smoking ordinance introduced household with him unforgettable reminiscences of a town recognised as just one of the Safest in the Entire world.

Sources shut to Davao Town Mayor Rody Duterte explained a person evening in the course of the 7 days-very long Kadayawan Competition held previous thirty day period, a restaurant owner alerted the law enforcement of a Filipino tourist who insisted on smoking whilst drinking beer.

Instructed by the restaurant owner that smoking inside general public sites is prohibited in Davao City, the smoker defiantly asked: “On whose orders?”

“Bakit pera ba ni Duterte ang binibili ko ng sigarilyo?,” the smoker reportedly told the cafe proprietor when informed that Mayor Duterte is very rigorous in implementing the Anti-Using tobacco Ordinance in the city.

(Why, am I making use of Duterte’s money in shopping for cigarettes?)

The arrogant reaction irked the cafe operator who is a pal of the Mayor. He immediately alerted the law enforcement and asked them to inform Duterte individually of the defiant smoker.

When Duterte walked into the cafe a few minutes later on, the arrogant smoker turned ashen-faced and instantly dropped his cigarette and stepped on it.

Witnesses stated Duterte calmly sat beside the smoker, pulled out a snub-nosed .38 revolver and poked it at the man’s crotch.

“Papiliin kita: barilin ko ang b…g mo, i-preso kita o kainin mo ang upos ng sigarilyo mo,” Duterte reportedly explained to the smoker.

(I will give you three decisions: I shoot your b…ls, I send out you to jail or you try to eat your cigarette butt.)

The smoker reportedly muttered “Sorry Mayor,” picked up his cigarette butt and swallowed it.

Witnesses stated that right before Duterte still left, he advised the smoker: “Never ever challenge the law.”

The defiant smoker, whose name was not launched by Davao City law enforcement, made three discoveries the night time he defied the Anti-Using tobacco Ordinance in Davao Metropolis.

Very first, the law applies to every person in Davao Metropolis.

Second, Mayor Duterte is definitely demanding in implementing the regulation.

3rd, cigarette butts are difficult and bitter when swallowed.

[Editor’s comment:] I have copied this short article from Manny Piñol’s Facebook wall. Emmanuel F. Piñol is the former governor of North Cotabato. Now he is a politics and sports activities columnist for “The Manila Times”. If this tale is truly true, then the Philippines may face intense modifications, when Rodrigo Duterte results in being president upcoming yr.
