Journalist and radio anchor Karen Davila weighed in on the controversial incident involving an LRT passenger and a female security guard that was caught on camera.

Davila believes the actions of the passenger, Paula Jamie Salvosa, were uncalled for and she would have been penalized if the incident happened in the train system of Singapore or Hong Kong.

“Sa sarili nating bansa, medyo ang lakas din nating maging bastos sa mga itinalagang opisyal. ‘Yung lady guard madami ding ibang trabaho ‘yun, hindi lang naman ‘yung babaeng ‘yon,” she said.

The video of Salvosa raising her voice at the security guard inside the LRT 2- Santolan station has gone viral and created a new buzzword: "Amalayer." -- Pasada Sais Trenta, dzMM, November 16, 2012
