The murder of Dutch missionary Willem Geertman, who had been helping Hacienda Luista farmers in their fight for land reform, appears more of a warning sign than a robbery.
First and foremost: A journalist who tried to run after the killers to get the license plate of their motorbike said he does not recall seeing the, flee with anything that could have contained Geertman’s money.
Reports later said the killers fled with Geertman’s bag containing P1.2 million. But the source of that information WAS NOT IDENTIFIED.
Second, Geertman had just come from Metrobank. If the motive was robbery, the killers could have just trailed him, blocked his vehicle and held him up without necessarily killing him.
Criminals want to commit the lightest crime possible when they carry out an illegal act.
But Geertman was shot in front of his office, in broad daylight and while kneeling. The witness said the triggerman, who did not bother to cover his face, even held Geertman before firing.
Obviously, the killers wanted Geertman’s murder to be seen and talked about by everybody instead of carrying it out when nobody is around so that nobody can recognize them.
Third, Geertman’s murder comes at a time when Luisita farmers had been aggressively demanding for the awarding of their share of the hacienda’s land., to the point of going to Pnoy’s home in
. Quezon City
Fourth: It’s been more than six months since the Supreme Court ruled that the hacienda should be distributed t the farmers. But up to now, Pnoy’s government can’t even give a tentative date on when will the farmers get their land.
The paperwork for the distribution has hardly started.
Fifth: The Supreme Court, led by then Chief Justice Renato Corona, rejected the demand of Pnoy’s family and relatives that they be paid several billion pesos for the hacienda.
The Supreme Court pegged their compensation at less than P200 million.
Pnoy’s family and relatives filed a motion for reconsideration. That motion is still pending but the farmers are firm in demanding their land IMMEDIATEY.
If Geertman’s murder is not a warning to the Luisita farmers, then the police will go all-out and non-stop in capturing the killers. It shouldn’t be a tough case since there was a witness, or probably witnesses since ot happened in broad daylight.
And the triggerman DID NOT COVER HIS FACE.
If the police will move slower than a turtle, until the case grows cold, Luisita farmers had better be on 24-hour guard.

Nothing to celebrate. Why? Our P1,000 today will not buy the quantity of goods as the P1,000 pesos of two years ago can buy.

So, what the JBC is doing right now is according to the script written by the Malacanang resident evil. Just like what happened to CJ Corona's impeachement, scripted. Magkano kaya ang binigay ni Pnoy na budget sa JBC?

Magkabarkada din si De Lima at Pnoy kaya ang image ng gobyerno natin is "palitan"lang pala ng partners
Kapag bandang huli at si De Lima nga ang inappoint ni Abnoy at sa mga susunod na survey ay mataas pa rin ang approval ratings niya, magpakamatay na tayong lahat. Wala na talagang pag-asa ang ating Inang Bayan.

Kapal talaga ng mukha ng mga ito! Panginoon, kailan n’yo ba kukunin ang mga ito? Lalo na yung nasa Malakanyang?"
Obvious naman na gusto nyang mapwesto. Tatagal ang pag-upo nya bilang CJ kung sakaling malasin sya, este swertehin pala.
Bastusan at babuyan sa bansa natin!

The name LIE-la is proper and fitting to this TEXT-retary of InJustice, who is living in DILEMMA.
Pagupo ni De Lima sa Supreme Court, ito ay magiging
COURT ng mamamayang Pilipino. GAGAGAHIN niyan ang

Boyet, talagang grabe kapal ng mukha ni De
Matagal na pong walanghiya yan si Del Lima, pati ang kanilang lider si Panot Pnoy.

As if sir, according to my understanding... She, or Carpio assumes as CJ.
De Lima is an ambitious bigot of a woman. She's more evil than Satan himself. She wouldn’t care even if stepped on somebody’s toes. She'll do everything for PNoy just to get what she wants... but that disbarment, THATS UNFAIR!. Unfair to CJ Corona and specially to FPGMA. All she has been doing is squeal like a PIG, Squeal on anybody just to be NOTICED, Squeal on anybody just to have a NAME.
Agree. Garapalang pagka-tuta! Di niya kaya ang application ng hearsay evidence rule in actual trial at yung conflict ng rights of state vs. the individual, CHIEF JUSTICE PA?
Hindi lang walanghiyaan ito...BABUYAN na kung si Lie De Lima ang uupong bagong SC Chief.

An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth! TAMA lang na si de
ang malagay na CJ.. Malilinis ang daan. Lima
Maganda si De Lima para magaway-away sila sa kangaroo court. Magandang scenario to! Tutal, binaboy na rin lang nila ang Supreme Court

Mamya niyan, bawiin din nila yung lupa sa mga magsasaka ng Hacvienda Lujisita.
IS RUDE, ARROFGANT, CONCEITED AND A BULLY! LIMA
Minsan nang hindi niya ginalang ang Supreme Court, tapos ngayon gusto nyang pamunuan ito? Kaya pala gusto niya maalis si Corona sa SC. kasi gusto pala niya ang puwesto ni
ED PUNZAL of Tagig
I am pretty sure that she will not be included by the JBC among the three (3) who will be chosen and submitted to the President for his choice to sit as the new CJ. De Lima’s independence is definitely questionable being a Cabinet member.
She is just a hypocrite, a woman who never experienced pain and suffering like Filipinos who are suffering now from poverty.
If De Lima is appointed SC Chief, the next step for the planners of the Left inside Malacanang will be executed after the 2013 party-list elections ...WATCH how they will use President Noynoy, and De Lima.
CARPIO AS CHIEF JUSTICE IS ALARMING!
