From yesterday's Visayan Daily Star: "A retired police officer shot and wounded a retired member of the United States Special Forces yesterday in front of the Negros Oriental 2 Electric Cooperative in Dumaguete City. Romarico Elumba, formerly assigned with the Provincial Internal Affairs Service of the police, allegedly shot retired US veteran war hero Louis Robinson with a .45 caliber pistol following an altercation over a traffic incident. Elumba said he identified himself as a former police officer, and wanted to hold the American national so he could be issued a temporary operators permit, but he was allegedly attacked after a verbal altercation. He shot him in the leg, he said, to immobilize the American national because “he is so big”. Elumba was reportedly hit in the right shoulder by the side mirror of Robinson’s motorbike. The latter said it was an accident and did not even notice Elumba while parking his bike. After paying for his bills at the NORECO 2, Robinson claimed in a written statement, that Elumba had even apologized to him. He told Elumba that “There’s no need to be sorry for nothing had happened.” Robinson said he then moved past Elumba and mounted his bike, but he heard a pop and when he looked up, he saw Elumba holding a gun pointed at him but it jammed. As soon as he looked down, Robinson said he saw that his left leg had been hit. He further claimed that another customer brought him to the hospital, contrary to Elumba’s statement he brought the wounded American to the hospital and voluntarily surrendered to the police. Robinson is preparing frustrated homicide charges against the former police officer. Both are residents of Barangay Batinguel.*JG" This wouldn't be the wonderful Reverend Robinson of Dumaguete I hope...I also notice the victim has to file the charges....I might be wrong - but on the rest of the planet it would be the police or an office of prosecutions filing charges?
