Let justice be served to the massacre victims

vir2Lives wasted, future lives devastated, freedom and democracy on the brink of destruction.

These are how I described the Ampatuan, Maguindanao massacre which costs the lives of 64 innocent people including 27 journalists whose only intention was to cover a historic event — the filing of candidacy of a gubernatorial candidate in that province. It was barbaric and gruesome act that only people shrouded by demons could perform.

Who were the culprits and what were their motives in doing such gory and hair raising acts? The Philippine National Police(PNP) has already identified the perpetrators and yet it appears that the wheel of justice is grinding slowly. In Maguindanao ( Mindanao ) and in almost all of the Muslim provinces, political warlordism is the name of the game. Even during the Marcos regime, the Dimaporos of Lanao del Sur were untouchables and until now that chain of power has not been unshackled. Instead the chains became so strong and formidable and even coddled by the national government.
