Task Force Martilyo, On the Job
Hot Manila – by Alan Robles
Last week, hammer-wielding crooks smashed the glass cases of a jewelry shop inside a Manila mall and escaped with the contents. Stung into action, our police announced their dramatic initiative for catching the bad guys: go to hardware stores and investigate all customers who are buying hammers. And also heavy wrenches — because, you know, they can also, uhm, shatter display stands?
We can guess the police immediately formed elite investigation groups, probably called “Task Force Martilyo” and “Task Force Liyabe.” Who knows, just to be on the thorough side, they might even also have set up a “Task Force Medyo Malaking Bato.”
