police posse which engaged them in hot pursuit following their daring
escape from a tightly secured provincial jail, but on election day.
Killed were Richard
Balasabas, Max Aspacio,
and James Magdasal all

one already convicted.
Remainig suspect Rico
Bandico decided to surrender.
It was the election
day May 9 when everybody was “thinking election”
that the foursome
bolted the jail perimeter
which is right in downtown
Dumaguete at the
provincial capitol area.
The hot pursuit team
organized by PD PSSupt
Herris Fama picked PInsp
Louis Lacandula, Tayasan chief of police, to
lead the police hot pursuit
under “Task Force Puga”...
Not even Mayor Duterte of the Philippines.
He does not actually want the death penalty,
it is the those violators-criminals who
want death penalty! Why? Because they debirately
choose and prefer to commit the crime despite the
penalty, therefore, they deserve such penalty, and
all for the protection of society.
Let me explain.
Nobody likes death penalty imposed. Not even
the criminals, how much more the Church , the Human
Rightists, nor Mayor Digong. Anybody.
Yes, a law imposing death penalty to heinous
crimes like rape, drugs, murder and plunder, is
only for violators. Not for the law abiding citizens.
Death Penalty law is just a DETERRENT. No
penalty will be imposed upon non-violators of such
laws. But those who willingly, wantonly and feloniously
violate such laws, indicate that THEY WANT
the death penalty imposed upon them, so be it.
It is the violators and their WILLINGNESS
to commit the crime and to accept the death penalty
that such be imposed. Otherwise, nobody will
get the death penalty even if there is law to it. It is
just a DETERRENT, meaning, it is not intended to
be imposed, if nobody violates the law imposing
it. Did you get what I mean?
It is exciting to wait and see the outcome
and reactions of Filipinos on many drastic
changes in the Filipino way of life
which will soon be instituted by incoming
President Mayor Rodrigo Duterte . He is a
simple man with high demands of discipline.
We like that. It’s about time we have
such kind of leader.
Among these changes soon to be expected
The amendment of the Constitution to
switch to the Federal form of government;
the re- imposition of the death penalty on
selected heinous crimes; three important
cabinet posts to be headed by communist
leaders in the Philippines; the death of the
pedrino and palakasan system; the ban on
firecrackers, the ban on liquor after midnight
and the enforcement of the old curfew
for minors, these are among other reforms.
But isn’t Duterte contradicting himself
by appointing his close classmates and
trusted allies ? Yes if you may, but what is
no-no under a Digong presidency are recommendations
from big shots. RRD says the
application will be automatically rejected.
But in fairness, and using common
sense, whom should Duterte appoint, a close
trusted and long tested ally, or a stranger?
The obvious choice goes without saying.
As he stood on one of the banks of the Jordan River that day, he was surrounded by many people...
