Undeniably, a lot of people are currently struggling in life now. Many can barely make ends meet even before the COVID-19 pandemic took place and the challenge is doubled now that the country is in crisis.
Not only the employees who lost their jobs lost their source of income but as well as those whose jobs depend on the people going out daily. However, before the law, there are rules that we must not forget regardless of the situation we are in. These rules promote equal protection among people.
Recently, in Paco, Manila, a 53-year-old man was arrested for allegedly stealing two (2) cans of luncheon meat. Based on a report on ABS-CBN News, the suspect works as a pedicab driver.
