Here in the Philippines, stealing electricity cables seems to be a headache, especially considering the high cost of purchasing copper wires. Yet, this issue persists, becoming a problem even for the government. Despite the numerous arrests made, our fellow citizens continue such activities, perhaps due to the hardships of life or as a means to support their vices.
A video became viral on Facebook, showing two individuals handling a large and long electric cable under the scorching sun. In the video, they even have a ladder and a vehicle, raising suspicions about the legitimacy of their actions. The person recording the video has doubts, noting that the absence of uniforms adds to the uncertainty.
However, according to comments from netizens, they believe these individuals are thieves engaging in such activities. While we hesitate to make negative comments, if their actions are indeed illegal, we hope that the relevant authorities take notice. This would lead to the apprehension of these individuals, putting an end to their illegal activities that cause inconvenience for consumers and distributors alike.
If these individuals are legitimate workers, it would be better if they wore uniforms or displayed identification to dispel negative assumptions about their actions. To the netizens who capture such videos and make them viral, we salute your courage. Although at times it may pose risks to your lives, your actions have led to the exposure and justice for numerous illegal activities and crimes.
