A hate crime

By

It was not a very pleasant way to die. Indeed, the state in which the remains of Jeffrey Laude, aka Jennifer, were found in the bathroom of a motel room in Olongapo spoke of a degree of anger and violence, even hatred, on the part of whoever was responsible for her murder.

By

Another New Year, another AFP chief

Edgar Arevalo for remembering the families of their men stationed on Ayungin Shoal aboard a World War II relic, the BRP Sierra Madre. For our soldiers who serve the nation in the loneliest outpost of the Armed Forces, nothing does more for morale than knowing that their families are cared for and looked after especially during the holiday season when family reunions are an important part of any Christmas celebration. More than medals or commendations, these gestures of concern and affection contribute significantly to building up loyalty and a greater sense of belonging in the military organization.
