A photo showing an unidentified teen girl apparently was pretty drunk dancing and being molested by the group of boys is currently making the rounds online.
In an article appeared on SocialTrendsPH website, claiming that the photo was taken from one of the most-visited bars in Bacolod City along Lacson Street. Some say it was taken from wet and wild party which is also common for party goers in the city.
THE Bacolod City Police Office (BCPO) Women and Children Protection Desk (WCPD) is investigating the “sexual abuse” allegedly committed by a group of men on a female teenager whose photo became a trending topic on social media.
Inspector Jinky Lou Ramos, chief of WCPD, said they are still validating if the incident really happened in Bacolod and if the victim is still a minor, Sun Star reported.
Here is their full statement:
PILIPINAS UNDERGROUND would like to apologize about the viral picture roaming around the social networking sites recently. This photo was taken from the DYNAMIC PULSE Party of Playmate Nation held in Marikina last February 14, 2015. The organizers of the said event is NOT LEGIT and REGISTERED under PILIPINAS UNDERGROUND, as one of the organization governing and protecting all productions over Metro Manila. We have sets of rules and policies to limit and secure not only the event itself but the patron as well. The organization has no idea about this. As much as we want to make a peaceful, respectful, and enjoyable events we do not have the power to control youths nowadays in creating parties like being mentioned above. Hence, we are calling the attention of all “party goers” to be keen fully in attending parties that are NOT LEGIT and REGISTERED production under PILIPINAS UNDERGROUND. Soon enough, we will seek the help of the authorities to elimate and vanquish this kind of organizers in the field. We, the PILIPINAS UNDERGROUND, is looking forward for your deep understanding and active participation to this advocacy.
Please spread. Thank you!

Let’s bear in mind that something like this could happen on different bars, campus, at any party places, wet or dry. Unless we address how teen or young adults drinking culture has evolved in response to the very regulations designed to control it, incidents like this are not going to go away. Responsible drinking is a must especially when you are in a public place because you wouldn’t know when other people will take advantage of your situation when you get too drunk.
Our personal view is that people should be held responsible for the choices we make when voluntarily intoxicated. If we get drunk and go out for a drive, our intoxication is not an excuse — it’s an element of a crime. Drunkenness impairs judgment, but we know that and bear moral responsibility for actions we take when our judgement is impaired due to our own choices. Obviously, it would be a different story if were drugged against our will or knowledge.
