Celebrities condemned a police officer who shot dead a mother and son in Paniqui, Tarlac. 

Last Sunday, December 20, an incident ensued between Police Senior Master Sergeant Jonel Nuesca and his neighbors named Sonya Gregorio and her son named Frank Anthony Gregorio. 

According to Paniqui police chief Lt. Colonel Ronel Rombaoa, Jonel confronted the mother and son after getting annoyed by the noise of an improvised canon made of PVC pipe called “boga.” 


In the said video, Jonel’s daughter, a minor, suddenly shouted at the two victims which made the old woman, Sonya, shout back at the former. This prompted Jonel to shoot the mother dead and Anthony next. 

But Jonel went on to put another bullet in the mother who was already lying on the before fleeing using a motorcycle. 

The murders have drawn outrage on social media, with several celebrities calling to #StopTheKillings in the country. 

Among the celebrities who condemned the murders Jonel committed were Maine Mendoza, Janella Salvador, K Brosas, Jed Madela, and Bianca Gonzalez. 

Maine, who admitted that she couldn’t take how far the actions of Jonel went, sought justice for the victims. 

“Bakit kailangang umabot doon? Hindi ko kaya, grabe, Hindi ko alam kung ano ang mararamdaman ko pero pwede bang barilin ka nalang din sa harap ng anak mo? Sorry Lord pero sobra kasi yun eh. Sobra yung ginawa niya. Hustisya para sa mag-inang Gregorio,” Maine wrote in her tweet. 

 

 

“Bihira nalang magcheck ng Twitter, yun pa talaga bubungad sayo. Ang sakit talaga sa puso,” Maine wrote in another tweet. 

 

 

“How inhumane can you be to take actual human lives like that so confidently for your own selfish reasons— IN FRONT OF YOUR OWN CHILD— LIKE IT’S NORMAL? This is what it has come to in our country. Sick. My father is a policeman my ass,” she stated. 

 

 

“Na parang normal lang ang pagbunot at pagputok ng baril. Na parang wala lang ang buhay ng dalawang taong walang laban at hindi nanlaban. Na kung walang video na nakuha ay hindi pa malalaman ang kawalanghiyaang krimen na nangyari,” Bianca wrote.

 

 

“Poor child, di naman nya alam ang difference ng FATHER, POLICEMAN at MAMAMATAY-TAO. Magkakaiba yun. Maraming mabuting ama at pulis. Ibang usapan yung 3rd. Hindi malinaw na tinuro sa kanya yun. Biktima din sya dahil mali ang alam nya. Heartbreaking. Sana may oras pa. Napakabrutal,” Alessandra de Rossi wrote. 

 

 

“Good cops should condemn bad cops. Remember the motto, #ToProtectAndToServe,” Angel Locsin wrote.
