Policeman chases fleeing gambler


No words can describe the value of a mother-child relationship. We’re always reminded of how much we should love and respect the person who has nurtured us from we opened our eyes for the first time.

However, in certain situations, somehow, righteousness must come before gratitude. For instance, when you’re a law-enforcement officer and your mother happens to be on the wrong side of the law.

Here’s the story of a policeman who was chasing a fleeing gambler, who turned out to be his mom.

The policeman also posted a funny question in the comments section about having problems in deciding whether to prioritise his job responsibilities or his gratitude for his mom.


Viewers suggest the policeman run slowly

Translation: Mommy will chase him back with a stick.

One viewer speculated a possible reaction from the policeman’s mother: instead of running away, she’d run towards her son with a stick in hand.


Responsibility & righteousness are the priority


Whether you agree with the policeman for deciding to run after his mom who was found illegally gambling, we believe that the police’s responsibility and righteousness should come first.

However, we really hope that the man won’t get punished after having his mom arrested.
