Is the "Walk of Shame" an acceptable punishment for the dried fish thief in Tanuan City, Batangas?
An amateur video showing an unidentified man, who was allegedly caught stealing boxes of dried fish in Tanauan, Batangas was instructed to walk around the wet market bearing a sign that says "Ako'y magnanakaw. 'Wag akong tularan." The controversial punishment is called "walk of shame".
In the said video, the thief is seen walking around the public market with a bag of dried fish tied to his hands. While he was at the middle of the crowd, a personnel asked him to shout his name. Tanaun City Mayor Antonio Halili reportedly ordered the Civilian Security Unit personnel to punish the thief.
