We were able to catch 1 of the culprits and he confessed that he was in the scene when my brother was beat up with the said group but he denies that he was one of the guys who hit my brother. He claims that he just chased my brother coz he doesnt want the guys who beat my brother to beat him up coz its kind like an initiation to a newly formed group that they are making. They beat guys up or get beaten by the members. That's what he claims.
Now we went to blotter it in the police station and the cops said that its just a slight physical injury so we will just go and get medical legal in the health office. I was like whoa! SLIGHT PHYSICAL INJURIES look at the kid he's pretty messed up and what if he was stabbed to death? You'd just let this guys roam around and probably hurt other kids like my bro. And then he was like asking us to go to the school of the culprits to catch the remaining of the gangs and try to settle things in the guidance. And its just a barangay matter not the cops for its just a light crime. I was like my brother's psychological and physical injury is a light matter? I didn't argue any longer coz it might bring any fights between us.
So my queries are:
1. What legal action should I take and the process since my brother got beaten up and was quite humiliated in the area?(take note some are minors and others are old standby's for the culprits)
2. What charges can I file if any?
3. If any demands we may have, what would it be?
4. For the cops, I would like to know if there is any charges I can file for the behavior they displayed. They were kind of unhelpful. All they did was ask a few questions and write a few papers and babooh to the victim.
Please help us gain JUSTICE and fight eradicate CRIME.
