Kasuklam-suklam ang pag-torture at pagsaksak ng 30 beses sa isang katorse anyos (Torturing and stabbing 30 times a 14-year-old is disgusting).
Do we answer with more violence, with the death penalty and an even more brutal crackdown on drugs? Or do we strive for justice?
We call on the Philippine National Police and the Department of Justice to ensure these murderers are caught, tried and imprisoned.
We call on the administration to suspend Oplan Double Barrel and rethink this bloody drug war.
And we call on all our countrymen to stand up against this culture of violence.
We must put an end to all these killings.
