(I came up with this piece based on a post by our friend Isabel Juico.)
This is either COLD-BLOODEDNESS or INCOMPETENCE, or both, of Pnoy then and now, in and out of Malacanang.
It has been 35 years since some 20 or so protesting farmers were massacred on
in . The
president then was Pnoy’s mother, Cory.
Anybody correct me if I’m wrong but NEVER was it known that Pnoy did
something to help capture and punish the killers. Manila
The Mendiola killers remain UNIDENTIFIED AND UNPUNISHED up to now.
In the early 2000s (2004 or 2007), close to 10 protesting farm workers were gunned down outside Hacienda Luisita. Pnoy was vice-president for security then of the hacienda.
Pnoy was cleared of any liability but just like the Mendiola massacre, NO EFFORT sustained or otherwise, by Pnoy was reported to help identify and punish the killers.
I just can’t recall exactly who said it but there was a story in media then that the shots which killed the fatalities came from outside.
However, television news video of the farmers fleeing when gunshots rang out CLEARLY SHOWED THEM RUNNING AWAY from, and not towards, the hacienda.
As one of the farmers’ leaders I talked to summed it up, “Bakit namin sasalubungin ang bala kung sa labas ng hacienda galling ang mga putok?”
The butchers behind the Hacienda Luisita massacre remain free.
During the hostage crisis at the Luneta more than a year ago involving tourists from
Hong Kong, it was widely reported that Pnoy was NOWHERE
to be found, even by media.
And that no less than the leader of
TRIED BUT FAILED to talk to him.
As we all know by now, several (was it eight) of the tourists were killed by the hostage-taker. Pnoy only showed up when it was over. Up to now, NOBODY has been punished or disciplined for the bloodbath due to the poor handling of the crisis.
The massacre of 19 soldiers in Basilan is still UNSOLVED, But just days after the slaughter, Pnoy SECRETLY GAVE P5 MILLION to the Mori Islamic Liberation Front, to which the killers belonged.
Isipin ko pa lang ay KINIKILABUTAN NA AKO kung ano ang gagawin ni Pnoy kapag nagkaroon ng MAS MALAGIM, na massacre bukod sa mga binanggit ko rito.
I yield the floor to you, people.
From our friends:
THE TRUE SITUATION WE’RE IN, PEOPLE!
Nakakalungkot isipin na buhay na buhay pa rin ang palakasang sistema sa Rehimeng Aquino.

May be quiet on the political front but a tempest in a teapot is abrewing... May GOD bless you with wisdom and courage in these trying times for our country.
I am in a daze reading this.
UNTOUCHABLE JUETENG AND ITS REAL DANGER
GRACE GO of
STL (small town lottery) was being pushed by Peping (Cojuangco) early on and he keeps on asking Ballsy to convince Abnoy to legalize it in exchange for the jueteng. But up to now this is still on the verge of reality!

Jueteng lords nga ba?
Jueteng is BREAD AND BUTTER for corrupt government officials, for direct deposit to their bank accounts. Why would they stop it eh pinagkakakitaan? Pag nabuko they have decent fall guys as scapegoats. 30
