Bullies in the Golf Course

I’ve been trying not to join the blogging bandwagon lately.  I feel that there are some issues that are blogged enough. But this is one particular issue that should and must be blogged about more. Interest should be kept alive. Justice must be served and people should not stop demanding it.

Everyone’s probably aware of what happened last December 26 at the Valley Golf. Politicians and their bodyguards ganged up on a 56-year old man and his 14-year-old son over a minor dispute in the golf course. To read the blog entry of Bambee de la Paz (witness, daughter and sister to the victims), click here.

What happened to the family was both shocking and distasteful. It has proven once again what kind of people we put in power. Politicians who don’t seem to have a decent bone in their bodies–who can drag down and kick a 56-year-old man to the ground without remorse. When I saw how big those  guys were, I almost cried out. It was pathetic really; the thought that such big, powerful men would beat up a pleading 14-year-old and a 56-year-old man over a minor dispute. They’re nothing more than bullies–bullies with bodyguards.

It’s a good thing that the story has been finally publicized by the mainstream media. The family has filed a case against these dastardly politicians and I say good luck to them! The DAR secretary went on TV last night and said that he had no intentions of resigning over the incident. Ang kapal ng mukha! He’s a public servant and common decency dictates that the most acceptable thing for him to do is to resign from his post. His sons should do the same.

I suddenly remembered. Bastos nga pala ang pamilyang ito. They have no idea what the word decency means.

To the de la Paz family, rest assured that a lot of people–people you don’t even know–are backing you up. Keep up the fight. Those big bullies deserve to be put in jail where they belong.

    Like you I was also staying away from the Blog bandwagon regarding this issue but the more I read the more it pisses me off really it is indeed sad and we all wish the best for the family.
    Enjoying your blog.
    Love, Peace and Inspiration

    I’ve read the post. And it is really disheartening. I might also do my own share of spreading the word about that incident on my blog, just to have a little way of debunking what kind of politicians we have. Tsk… tsk… 😦
