PNP Chief Bato de la Rosa panics…
throws a smoking firecracker at a heap of firecrackers… in a crowd then scampers ahead of everyone…
From ABS-CBN News: “Bocaue, Bulacan – (Updated) An illegal firecracker dubbed “Goodbye De Lima” sent Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Director General Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa and his men scrambling for safety during an inspection of the pyrotechnics center here on Thursday.
“Video footage of ABS-CBN News shows Dela Rosa presenting the triangular firecracker to members of the media and even joking that he had nothing to do with its name.
“His laugh, however, turned to silence when the firecracker emitted gray particles initially mistaken for smoke.
“He then dropped the firecracker and ran for cover.
“An officer grabbed the firecracker, threw it on the road, and doused it with water.
“He told Dela Rosa, “Nahulog lang, sir, ‘yung powder. Nag-leak lang yung powder, sir.” xxx
