It is essential that prior to the warrantless arrest: (a) an offense has in fact been committed, and (b) the arresting officer has personal knowledge of facts or circumstances that the suspect committed it. Mere intelligence information is not enough. While law enforcers may not have witnessed the commission of the offense, they must have direct knowledge of the crime right after its commission. If the information about the offense came entirely from a third person, the arresting officer cannot claim personal knowledge.

Presidential miss

President Aquino missed a golden opportunity to show to the public his heart is in the right place when he applied—and got—an exemption from the election gun ban. Amid calls for gun control, the Chief Executive defied public sentiment; and considering recent very controversial incidents of illegal discharge and shootouts, he has rubbed salt into the wounds of victims of gun violence and their kin. It’s either he does not feel the public pulse or if he does, he’s being insensitive. Alas, Filipinos may not have a President, but a Rambo!
