Bomb joke could mean 5 years in jail

A BUS washer was arrested last Friday after making a bomb joke at the DLTB bus terminal on EDSA, Quezon City and faces imprisonment of five years.

The Quezon City Police District said policemen were inspecting a bag left in the bus terminal at 8:45 p.m. when Gilson Escasa, 37, shouted “Bomba! Boom!”

Chief Supt. Guillermo Eleazar, QCPD director, said the joke triggered panic among commuters in the terminal. Eleazar said making a bomb joke is a criminal offense under P.D. 1727. – Evan Orias
