My Great Web page

A very disturbing news was on TV when I arrived last night from my DILG written exam. It was a massacre and 47 dead (According to ABS-CBN TV Patrol)! And as expected, it was in Mindanao where guns proliferate.

It is expected because elections is fast approaching. It’s less than 6 months before May 2010 elections. Power hungry politicians will use their private armies to silence anyone who will impede their candidacy. And that’s obviously what happened here.
I’ll be posting additional photos…

12 of the victims were journalists, including several members of the National Union of Journalists of the Philippines, making this the deadliest such incident in the history of news media.

It is sad to know that these kinds of barbaric acts occur in our country. We pride of democracy but we prove the contrary. These uncivilized acts will drive away possible investors which will definitely affect our poverty stricken economy.

If you are a foreigner, what will be your reaction upon hearing this incident?

Please share your thoughts below.

This is a classic manifestation of an Oligarchy Politics where in the political and economic power rests only to a few ruling elite. We have to condemn this kind of politics. Lives are sacrificed, wasted and destroyed. So inhumane. . . . so senseless!

Let us put an end to all forms of human rights violations.

Ronald Redito November 25, 2009 at 8:56 PM

Thanks for dropping by Tita! This is really sad! It would greatly impact our reputation in the international community na naman!

killing ampatuan will give justice and human dignity to th victims, specially to their families!!

fuck that stupid ampatuanboi!!!

go to hell, you have no place in heaven.

such a moron, lunatic, pathetic creature!

Ronald Redito December 1, 2009 at 3:49 PM

It is quite obvious that the Ampatuans will benefit from that incident. The government should do everything to give justice to the victims. Let us hope that justice won’t be delayed.

iTaddy December 4, 2009 at 6:30 AM

i dont know about this but what if its a planned massacre that will make the ampatuans the evil ones? what if this masscre is done by the other party? i mean if u carefully analyze the evidences or the video they presented its like they did the massacre with the intention of showing it to the people and why would they introduce their selves as the supporters of the ampatuans? then why is it that only the wife went to the comelec office to register? hmmm fishy for me..

MAGUINDANAO MASSACRE – JUSTICE MUST PREVAIL !!!!

Looking back to what had happened , it’s really TRAUMATIC to each and everyone of us,when PEOPLE WITHOUT CONSCIENCE can do such a GRUESOME/BARBARIC CRIME.As a woman myself, what they have done to the women-victims were INJUSTICE BEYOND WORDS.They all died because of people that have been so GREEDY WITH POWER .Whoever have orchestrated and have done this MUST PAY TO THEIR LAST DROP OF BLOOD.There must be more buried in their area ,if it wasn’t a blown up news- they’ll belonged to people that have been buried to unknown locations and the bereaved families that have lost their kins,friends will forever never see even their very bones.JUSTICE MUST PREVAIL,no one is excused for committing such a crime that shocked the whole world.It’s sad because not all people here in Mindanao are as HEARTLESS as those that have done it.We are PEACE LOVING AND HARDWORKING PEOPLE that just want to live in a PEACEFUL/CRIME-FREE ENVIRONMENT.Due to this ,our Mindanao will be SCARRED FOR LIFE and some people now thought that it’s unsafe to go here.
I have lived here for 41 years,my grandfather have never left our place – even died here ,because for him he had found the LAND OF PROMISE .He has chosen to live here with his family because he was charmed by the place,he served as the 1st Vice Mayor of a city here and he’ll always tell us that wherever we go we’ll always go back here in Mindanao.He has befriended Muslim clans because he got a farm planted with palm oil somewhere in Sultan Kudarat.There were tough times during his early years staying on that area but what had happened in Maguindanao was perhaps the worst in the history for it involved innocent people /hardworking people/women that were killed for a WHIM.
Everyone here wants JUSTICE for what they have caused us all.We all fear for our lives if these people can’t be all caught .They must pay for the crimes they have committed.
I do hope that there’ll be more evidences leading to he downfall of the people behind this UNFORGIVABLE CRIME OF A LIFETIME.
Praying for the bereaved families that they must find ways in accepting what had happened to their loved ones,for us living here in Mindanao,that we’ll be protected from abusive /heartless people that terrorizes our peaceful lives.
We must be vigilant at all times,because we never know what happens next.
Thanking people that have done their very best/worked hard to come out with an analysis that can be very vital/useful to unveil the REAL TRUTH behind this crime.

Ronald Redito December 4, 2009 at 1:52 PM

Hi Rachel,

This is really shocking and I believe the worst crime to date. This will surely impact tourism in that place of the country. It is good to know that the authorities are doing their best to pinpoint the mastermind behind this act. I learned that the guns used were already traced.

Let’s all hope and pray for the fast resolution of the case. I still believe in the justice system.

Ronald Redito December 4, 2009 at 2:19 PM

Hi,

I had the same theory before but this latest news will disprove that angle. http://bit.ly/91BeQo The weapons allegedly used were already found in the property of Ampatuan. If it would proven that those weapons were used in the said incident then the case is closed for me. =)

Maybe we need to bring back death penalty or just for Ampatuan’s case. =)

Mardoc December 9, 2009 at 12:57 PM

Having justice is a big thing!! But killing as a penalty? that i think is much bigger than what is should be…

The manner of extinguishing the perpetrators or making them pay for their actions should not rest only on the hands of a lethal injection nor an electric chair, why not? placing them on a field at broad daylight on national television with an army of soldiers to gun them down to the ground… This is the kind of punishment fit for those do not value life and religion.

Ronald Redito December 9, 2009 at 8:55 PM

Thanks for the comment Bro! I don’t know why kinokontra ng mga tao ang imposition ng martial law to get all those involved. Pag walang ginawa si Gloria magagalit, pag meron magagalit.

Red December 10, 2009 at 12:06 PM

If the AMPATUAN’S really did that horrible massacre……I swear they’ll never see the daylight again. And even those AMPATUAN’s fanatics will also experience same thing as they did…take it from me..

I’m also from MINDANAO but I never expected such cruelty as it is.

For me, I would rather to thank the PRESIDENT for declaring MARTIAL LAW for that AREA (Maguindanao, Sultan Kudarat & Part of Cotabato) but for those who criticize her ACTIONS —- you are LOSERS….You are only trying to have a GOOD FIGURES of the society of which we knows that MOSTLY of US can easily fool because we think they are right…..but we should also consider that implementing MARTIAL LAW is only a preventive measures by the GOVERNMENT, not to explode ANY VENGEANCE from the victims especially of the MAGUNDADATU’s part. We all knew that they are also one of the most powerful clan in MAGUINDANAO…..

In fact, I’m not supporting the PRESIDENT 100% BUT for what she did – I make myself proud because of her immediate action on the case. But if MARTIAL LAW might be implemented for good by the PRESIDENT, it’s not POSSIBLE. ONLY ONE REASON WHY IT COULD NOT HAPPENED AGAIN, “BECAUSE WE DON’T WANT IT AND WE LEARNED FROM IT”…….

Hope this case will resolve immediately and justice to be served.

Ronald Redito December 11, 2009 at 3:28 AM

Thanks for visiting Red,

I am not pro-GMA and many times I have opposed her actions especially those corrupt practices by her family and appointed officials such as the expensive dinner, NBN ZTE controversy, Mikey Arroyo’s unexplained wealth etc.

But this time, she is right. Just look at the outcome. Is it bad? Did we hear abuses coming from the military? Can we seize the arms of the Ampatuans? Can the government do immediate arrests if martial was not declared considering their fire power? I think not.

Ang problema, there are some sectors of the society na wala talagang makitang tama sa ginagawa ng administrasyon. Nagpalit na ng mga presidente pero always anti-government. Kase that’s their ultimate motive, to dissolve the government and let their guys assume power.

Then what will happen? The same!

Man by nature is selfish. Pag ang mga lider na nila ang nakaupo ganun din ang mangyayari.

Andaming kumukontra kase yun ang pinakamadaling gawin. Pero pag tinanong mo kung ano yung alternative solution nila sa conflict, wala naman masuggest. I guess, kung wala namang magandang sasabihin, tumahimik na lang sana yung ibang sector jan.

Sa tono ng pananalita ko, you might think na burgis ako or mayaman? Na wala akong puso sa mahihirap?

We’ll kung alam nyo lang, nag-aral ako sa kolehiyo from 2000-2004 na baon ko lang ay 1000 pesos a month. Idivide mo yan ng sa 30 days, 33 pesos lang ang daily allowance ko. Pumapasok ako ng walang laman ang tiyan. Nagtyaga ako na ulam ko sardinas lang. Kalahati ng sardinas sa umaga, kalahati sa tanghali and kikiam or fishballs sa gabi.

Pumasok ako bilang student assistant at rumaket na disenteng mapagkakakitaan. Nag-aral, nakagradweyt on time at naghanap ng trabaho.

Sa tingin ko, bulag pa ang mga estudyante or mga tao at madaling madala sa mga pang uudyok ng ilang sektor.

We need to focus on uplifting the qualities of our lives in the legal way. Sometimes, we need to trust our government and let them do their job.

But if they abuse their power, then count me in. Let’s fight the government! But as long as they are in the parameters of the constitution I don’t see the need to be concerned. WE can now hope that justice will be served.

Thanks.

dapat parusahan ang lahat na sangkot sa massacre na nangyari. kawawa ang mga pamilya ng mga biktima sa massacre.

JBasco July 6, 2010 at 4:19 PM

Dapat gawin din sa mga sangkot sa massacre ang nangyari para maramdaman nila kung paano patayin na parang hayop na walang kalaban laban. Paano na lamang yung mga pamilyang naiwanan ng mga biktima. Paano na yung mga taong umaasa sa kanila. Kung pwede lang ipatupad sa pilipinas ang “code of hamurabi”.

GODKNOWS August 18, 2010 at 9:32 PM

ALL AMPATUAN HOPE WALA NA SILANG KALAYAAN AT SANA MAGKASAKIT SILA KUNG SILA MAN AY DI MAMATAY SA HATOL NG COURT DAHIL SA PABAYA ANG JUSTICE NATIN ,WILL SANA MAMATAY NALANG SILA AT UUD ANG KAKAIN SA KANILA AT SUNUGIN SILA DAHIL HINDI CURABLE ANG SAKIT NILA.

Turbulence August 30, 2010 at 11:51 PM

lahat ng mga Ampatuan dapat sunugin ng buhay at huwag sila bigyan ng kalayaan ibalik na ang death penalty sobra naman yan para lang sa pera mag-aasal hayop ang isang tao ito naman si Andal Ampatuan akala mo kung sinong hari di rin magtatagal mararamdaman mo kung paano ka tratuhin mahigit pa sa isang hayop GAGO wala kang kuwenta sa mundo!

si ampatuan ay dapat ikulong… dapat din siyang mamatay ilang buhay ang nasawi. dahil diyan. paano na ang may pamilyang namatayan dapat siyang kasuhan na hindi na makakalabas pa sa bilangguan…… yung mga namatay dapat ding i sample sa kanya para malaman niya kung gaano kasakit ang mawalan ng pamilya.,,,paano n ang pamilyang naiwan sino ang maghahanap buhay para sa kanilang magkaka pamilya dapat cyang sampalin ng 9000000000 beses kung alam lang niya…… 57 tao ang kanyang napatay kabilang na ang broadcaster sa abs-cbn ngayon ay nag hahanap pa rin ako ng hustisya sa pagkamatay ng maraming tao…….
