A Person’s Right to Life Ends Where the Right of Others Begins

A PERSON’S RIGHT TO LIFE

ENDS WHERE THE RIGHT OF OTHERS BEGINS…

By Apolinario Villalobos

 

DRUG PUSHERS WHO DESTROY THE LIFE OF OTHERS CLEARLY SHOW THAT THEY ARE GOING BEYOND THE DEMARCATION LINE OR INTRUDE INTO THE RIGHTS OF OTHERS TO HAVE A SERENE LIFE. IN THIS REGARD, WHAT RIGHT TO LIFE THE HUMAN RIGHTS ADVOCATES ARE TALKING ABOUT, FOR CRIMINALS WHO HAVE BREACHED THE RIGHT OF OTHERS THAT EVEN RESULT AT TIMES TO THEIR DEATH?

 

HOW CAN A DRUG PUSHER OR A DRUG ADDICT WHO HAS RAPED AND KILLED A GIRL BE JUST PENALIZED WITH A “REHABILITATION” FOR WHICH THE GOVERNMENT WILL EVEN HAVE TO SPEND, AFTER THE VIOLATOR HAS TAKEN AWAY THE LIFE OF HIS VICTIM? WHERE IS THE LOGIC IN REHABILITATING A PERSON WHO CHOSE TO BE A CRIMINAL AND IN THE PROCESS TOOK AWAY THE LIFE OF OTHERS, OR TO PUT IT LIGHTLY, DESTROYED THEIR FUTURE? ARE THE VICTIMS OF DRUG PUSHERS AND ADDICTS NOT ENTITLED TO JUSTICE AND RIGHT TO LIFE?

 

HOW CAN THE CATHOLIC CHURCH LOOK THE OTHER WAY, AFTER A DERANGED DRUG ADDICT HAS CAUSED THE BURNING DOWN OF A DEPRESSED COMMUNITY OR CAUSED LONG HOURS OF TENSION AFTER HOLDING A HOSTAGE? HOW CAN THE CATHOLIC CHURCH LAMBAST PRESIDENT DUTERTE FOR HIS EFFORT IN CHECKING THE FURTHER PROLIFERATION OF DRUG MENACE THAT INVOLVES MANY MANY MANY  CATHOLICS?

 

Ang Prosesong Legal

ANG PROSESONG LEGAL

Ni Apolinario Villalobos

 

 

ANG SINASABING PROSESO AY NAGIGING KALASAG NG MGA KRIMINAL NA KAHIT NALITIS AT NAPATAWAN NG PARUSA AY NAKALALABAS PA RIN DAHIL SA KAPANGYARIHAN NG PERA AT IMPLUWENSIYA.

 

KAYLAN NAGING MASAMA ANG ISANG GAWAIN UPANG MATIGIL ANG KRIMEN DAHIL LANG UMABOT SA HINDI MAIWASANG PAGKAPATAY SA KRIMINAL? KAILANGAN PA BANG PATUNAYAN ANG PAGKA-INOSENTE NG KRIMINAL DAHIL LANG SA TINATAWAG NA PROSESO NG BATAS NA WALA NAMANG BINATBAT? ANO PANG EBIDENSIYA ANG HAHANAPIN KUNG ANG KRIMINAL AY HULING-HULI SA PAGGAWA NG KRIMEN? ANO PANG PAGTATAKIP ANG GAGAWIN KUNG MISMONG MGA NAKAKAKILALA SA KRIMINAL ANG NAGSASABING TOTOO NGA ANG PARATANG?

 

LIMITADO ANG PANANAW NG MGA TAONG MAY ADBOKASIYA SA “HUMAN RIGHTS” DAHIL HANGGANG SA KAHULUGAN LANG SILA NG SALITANG “KAMATAYAN” AT “BUHAY” NA ANG TINUTUKOY AY ANG KRIMINAL. HINDI NILA BINIGYANG HALAGA ANG IBA PANG SAKLAW NG MGA SALITANG NABANGGIT DAHIL HINDI NILA ISINAMA ANG KAPAKANAN NG MGA BIKTIMA. MAS NAAAWA PA SILA SA BUMULAGTANG KRIMINAL NA PINATAY DAHIL NAHULI SA AKTO, SA HALIP NA BIGYANG-PANSIN DIN ANG MGA BIKTIMA NA KUNG HINDI NAWALAN DIN NG BUHAY AY HABANG-BUHAY NA MAGDURUSA!

Davao International Airport Needs Urgent Attention for the Necessary “Changes”

DAVAO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT NEEDS URGENT ATTENTION

FOR THE NECESSARY “CHANGES”

By Apolinario Villalobos

 

When Rodrigo Duterte was campaigning for the presidency, the popular caveat is: “change is coming”. Now, that he is in Malacaἧan Palace finally, it has become: “change for the better”. Indeed, there are so many things that need to be changed as part of his “house cleaning”. One of them is the Davao International Airport which is in a very sorry state. Many disappointed visitors to the Davao were heard to have commented on how in the world has such a “dilapidated” terminal become an international airport? For one thing, the decrepit signage announcing “Davao International Airport” has only with four or five lighted letters. The whole terminal building needs a repainting to put it bluntly. One lane that leads to the entrance of the pre-departure is closed forcing passengers alighting from taxis, thereby, forcing them to cross two lanes before finally making it to the unglamorous gate of the pre-dep. And, worst is the constant breakdown of the aircon system making many offices inside the terminal building akin to sauna cubicles!

 

Davao is supposed to be the premier international airport in Mindanao, but there is not even a 24-hour lounge for passengers who come from neighboring cities and towns, and who are then forced to stay in cheap downtown lodging facilities for a few hours in their desire to be on the first flight the following day. The average taxi fare from the downtown area is Php250, but for humanitarian’s sake, there should be a tip of at least Php20.00 The drivers of taxis queueing outside the airport “fence” are left on their own without, at least mobile toilets. And, to think that they an integral part of the tourism industry. I was told by many drivers that they would have to look for discreet corners every time they heed the call of nature. Aside from the mobile toilet, they should be provided with at least, a sheds of tarp with benches as they patiently wait for the visitors for 24 hours. And, there’s one signage announcing the presence of a government office in the area, but the name is shamefully printed in small letters under the name of the sponsor, a soft drink company which is printed in big letters…now, I think that is wrong because government agencies are not supposed to solicit funds for promo undertakings as they are supposedly budgeted!

 

The new secretary of the Department of Tourism, Wanda Tulfo Teo should do something about the aforementioned appalling situations. There is no problem with the peace and order of Davao, especially, with the transport service because taxi drivers are generally courteous and honest. But tourism is not all about peace and honest taxi drivers. The industry is more that those, as just like in visiting a house as guest, there is a question, such as, what can a palatable food on a grandly prepared table do if the yard is full of grass, the gate and the door are dilapidated, and the lighting fixtures are out of order?

 

The international focus has been veered towards Davao where the new president came from, and also due to its reputation as the comparably most peaceful city in the Philippines, thanks to him. It is home to the highest peak in the country, Mt. Apo, at 10,311 feet above sea level: the most exotic fruit, durian: Davao coffee made from coffee beans disposed awkwardly by civets from their innards: and, not to mention the reputation of the city as the biggest in area, in the whole world at 2,444 square kilometers. The new president who is known for his hard-hitting remarks and cuss has trebled the curiosity about this city. Davao is not only about Mindanao…she now stands for the Philippines as Duterte has become synonymous to her.
