Senator Ronald ‘Bato’ dela Rosa said during the July 4 Kapihan sa Senado that in every police operation there must be no collateral damage but “shit happens”.

“We are living in an imperfect world. Kung perfect sana lahat walang magkakamali pero marami tayong imperfections so kaya nangyayari iyan,” Senator dela Rosa said when asked about a recent police operations where a police officer and 3-year-old girl were killed.

He said that rules of engagement tells everything must be secured and there must be no collateral damage.

“Pero sabi ko imperfect world tayo. Sino ba may gusto na, ikaw pulis ka, gusto mo may bata na matamaan. Never, kasi ikaw may anak ka rin. Hindi mo gusto na may mangyari na ganun pero shit happens. During operations, shit happens,” he explained.
