Which is more important in Philippines: The lives of robbers, burglars, murderers, rapists, kidnappers and drug pushers or those of law-abiding citizens?


Eliminator of society’s scum

De Lima Arrested by CIDG

President Digong is a “psychopathic serial killer” and “No. 1 criminal” in the eyes of Sen. Leila de Lima.

Would you call a leader who has brought peace to Davao City, once a no-man’s land, a psychopathic serial killer just because in the process, many criminals who preyed on helpless, innocent citizens were killed by the hundreds?

Which is more important: The lives of robbers, burglars, murderers, rapists, kidnappers and drug pushers or those of law-abiding citizens?


What crime has the President committed for him to be called the “No. 1 criminal?”



Reports that he ordered people killed are hearsay; he has not been charged in court of any crime.

Who is making the accusation but a senator who is being haunted by her past for allegedly protecting convicted drug lords at the New Bilibid Prison and receiving campaign contributions from some of them?

Let’s ignore the accusations that she had sex with one of the drug convicts inside his cell—the first justice secretary in history to spend hours with a convict inside his kubol (hut) on the penitentiary grounds—or consorted with her driver because those are personal and nobody else’s business.

Now, let’s talk straight.

Whom would you choose: An eliminator of society’s scum or a protector of the illicit drug trade?

Why should the Senate open an investigation into the allegations of retired policeman Arthur Lascañas when he testified before the august body last year that the so-called Davao Death Squad (DDS) was a myth?

This is the same Lascañas who told senators during a hearing that then Davao City Mayor Digong Duterte had nothing to do with extrajudicial killings in the city.

Why would the Senate believe a witness who perjured himself the first time and will surely lie through his teeth again?

Environmentalist Gina Lopez’s confirmation as secretary of environment and natural resources is facing rough sailing in the bicameral Commission on Appointments.

Among those opposing Secretary Gina’s confirmation are six tribal chiefs from three towns in Surigao del Sur who were allegedly adversely affected by her order to close down mines in watershed areas.

This columnist will bet his bottom peso those six tribal chieftains are fakes and were paid by mining companies to come out.

In the first place, what are their tribes? The Inquirer report didn’t mention this.

Their photo on page A8 in the Inquirer on Tuesday betrays them: They wore new costumes and didn’t look native or indigenous.

Two of them had sunglasses perched on top of their heads; tribesmen don’t wear sunglasses.

People who hate Gina Lopez for allegedly being biased against mining—she’s not—should see what Marcopper has done to the small province of Marinduque.

The province is still suffering from the effects of the Canadian company’s irresponsible mining operations long after it was shut down.

Children can’t bathe in the rivers and fishermen have to fish far away from the shoreline because of the heavy pollution caused by tailings left by Marcopper.
