Mayor Nasser Pangandaman, Jr., Mayor of Masiu City, Lanao del Sur; his father, Secretary Nasser Pangandaman of the Department of Agrarian Reform; and their bodyguards reportedly beat up a helpless 56-year-old dad and his 14-year-old son to a pulp in Antipolo City a day after Christmas!

Complete story here:

In this case, justice should be served. And ordinary people like us - whom these supposedly public servants should serve and protect on the first place - should come together and help these victims in any way we can.

Such hooligans and crooks in government are the reasons why our country is so, in the words of the victim, f*cked-up right now!

My prayers and thoughts go to the aggrieved family.

Take courage.

Help will come.

Turns out, si De La Paz pala ang instigator of the fracas. But Bambee was fast on the draw, nag blogging tulos siya, and got the sympathy of the whole nation.
Moral of the story ? stereotypes die hard ! if you are a politician, you know you are already pigeon-holed....

Yes sir. Actually I was supposed to blog about it, but could not find the time again now that the holidays are over. I think it is our bad to jump to conclusions right away based on what we feel at the moment while reading the blog post of bambee. While I am not jumping to any conclusion now, thus committing another mistake, I feel that it's more than meets the eye now. However, I believe I can not blame everyone who reacted the way they did. By the looks of it, the reaction was brought about by something concrete and real, like perhaps actual and similar experiences with such politicians or anyone in power or powerful positions in society..including, ehem, rich and arrogant people..oh well...the good thing right is, you happend to drop by my humble blogsite..thank you sir and God bless!
