crime wave

Robbers no longer prey upon the valuables of the people; they are even more predisposed in terminating their victims after the heist.  A Frenchman was waiting for taxi one morning when his clutch bag was snatched.  The 68 year old tried to fend off but was shot several times.  Where are these criminals coming from?


 A text message is circulating in Bacolod as a counter move against churchmen in the province.  It came as a response when the High Court upheld the right of the church to display their tarpaulin on Team Buhay/ Team Patay crusade.  Now, here comes a Team Tatay—where names of clerics actively celebrating Mass and at the same time maintaining also a family, a no-no in a religious, almost monastic life for a Catholic priest.  Some kind of a karmic spoiler.  Tit for tat.


 Several countries like Australia, China, Britain and US have issued warnings to their citizens not to visit southern Philippines lest they be kidnapped and violated.  This came about during the standoff in Sabah and other criminal incidents in the past.  While the Philippines has improved its standing on tourism and aviation industry, there is always the unfortunate iniquitous challenge posed by crooks.  One cannot but entertain the thought that there is wisdom in vigilantism.


 A cum laude working student was held up while commuting and was eventually shot dead.  Gone were the days when robbers and killers were a different breed.  Now they are the same.  Street predators no longer respect life and property.  It is prey for them already.  There should be some kind of social cleansing, a biological warfare to resolve this nagging and unfortunate threat in public safety.  Human rights should be shelved at the moment.


 A cab driver working on night shift was gunned down by its passenger at dawn in Sampaloc, Manila.  First, there was a foreigner, then a student.  Earlier, politicians were endangered with the forthcoming electoral exercise.  Indeed, there is a crime wave already manifesting in some parts of the country.  Lawbreakers are emboldened whenever there is a situation where people are virtually disarmed and almost helpless to fight back.


 AT A GLANCE:  Filipinos wanted Sabah under Philippine government.  Filipinos in Sabah say yes but their currency should be in Ringgit!  There is a secret to growing hair faster although it is more common sense.  Accordingly, neither oil and chemical application nor spa can do it, only scalp massage says a skin specialist.  Beauty products contain skin irritants, chemicals that hasten wrinkles and worst, acting as carcinogens.  Be contented with the application of ripe papaya, egg yolk and coconut oil if you intend to protect your skin.  Go green as the saying goes.

    I hope a new medicine intended for criminals will be invented something to make them sleep forever…like a chewing gum or lollipop…seems like it’s that easy now in commiting a crime!
