“Wag po sir, maawa po kayo, apat po mga anak ko, maliliit pa,” Roger Herrero begged for his life as the police put a gun to his head.
“Magdasal ka na,” the policeman said, before pulling the trigger.

The bullet pierced Roger’s head, shattering his jaw. He slumped to the ground.
According to Agdangan police, they said Roger had robbed someone. As police was investigating the robbery, Roger shot at the police, then fled onboard a motorbike.
But Roger couldn’t drive a motorbike, his wife says. Roger could only drive a pedicab.
Roger said he was abducted by the police, forced to admit to a series of robberies in the town, and then brought to Atimonan, a town one hour away.
