In defense of law and order against those with blood on the soles of their feet
Filipinos sometimes seem very cruel to good people who have hard jobs.
So quick to judge. So harsh in that judgment.
The political opportunists wasted no time sowing blame. Senator Poe and Mayor Duterte were out front. They were parroting the same lines as that strange women’s rights organization from the far whacko left, Gabriela.
Well, no body is too fresh for a political opportunist to stand atop to claw their way into power. Duterte’s spokesman fairly shrieked that President Aquino has “blood on his hands!”
Well these low class politicians have blood on the soles of their feet.
My perspective is different. I’ve known that for a long time . . . well, since 9/11/2001, when first responders were climbing up the World Trade Center stairs in New York as panicked occupants were charging down. The building came down on top of those firemen and police officers and they are now dust.
Sympathy in the Philippines is driven by the poor, who often resent authority and power, because they have none. That is understandable.
It is less understandable why people of authority, or pretending authority, such as senator candidates and mayor candidates, and the editors of the press, so easily choose sides before knowing the facts. The press has blood in their eyes, drooling blood over circulation figures, and who speaks for the police?
Who speaks for the regular people, the sons and daughters of good people, who are put in an impossible position because they represent law and order, and must stand against violent thugs who do not respect anyone with a different idea.
So, hey, PNP and other representatives of law and order. I’m with you. I respect the difficult position you are put into, to face humans imitating snarling dogs. You are expected to be polite, to use maximum tolerance, to suffer or die without defense, without compassion . . .
From me, personally. On behalf of my family.
Thank you for defending law and order and doing the tough job that whack nuts like Gabriela do not have the character to do, and political slugs like Duterte and Poe are too opportunistic and greedy to appreciate.
I am sure there are many who feel as I do. Who understand that it takes brave people to carry a nation of law and order on their shoulders, even if they are condemned for doing so.
On behalf of other compassionate and law-abiding people, too. . . . Thank you for doing the really hard work of a civilized nation.
