Still, impunity

By

Ukul Talumpa was the mayor of Labangan, Zamboanga del Sur. He, his wife, a 25-year-old relative, and a year-and-a-half old infant were shot and killed by gunmen as they emerged into the bay area from Naia 3. The gunmen, as usual, rode on motorcycles and drove away before terrified guards and onlookers could react. Not as usual, they wore cops’ uniforms underneath their jackets.

This applies worldwide, even in the United States and Wall Street. “Bato-bato sa langit, ang tamaan huwag magagalit.”
