Having a bad day? This policeman from Tarlac will restore your faith in humanity.

Police Master Sergeant John Hay Macapulay was on duty in Gerona, Tarlac when they encountered two minors on a motorcycle in a checkpoint. One of them was Eunie Subaran, a graduating student, who begged to just let go of them instead. When Sergeant Macapulay didn’t agree to her request, he asked the two to give him three reasons why he should not give them a ticket for a violation while he treated them to lunch. Eunie’s brother said that the motorcycle is owned by their father to use as transportation to go to his work as a construction worker, while Eunie said that they just went to her school to get a glimpse of her supposed graduation.

When Sgt. Macapulay asked why she didn't attend her graduation, she said that she needs to pay the graduation fee and other debts in school in order to attend. Right after that, the sergeant decided to accompany them back to her school and pay for her graduation fee that costs P3,900 so she can march at her own graduation. Fortunately, Eunie finished high school with honors that made it all worth it.
