Aguirre no hero, told to stop being the usual ‘drama king’

/ 12:19 AM March 06, 2012

I am disturbed that a lot of clueless people are calling lawyer Vitaliano Aguirre a hero. What on earth for? All the man did was make a spectacle of himself in the impeachment court by covering his ears while a senator-judge was talking. What he did was childish at best, and contempt of court at worst.

It appears that this lawyer is a publicity hound, and has a penchant for pulling stunts when things don’t go his way. As a lawyer for Hubert Webb, he walked out when a guilty verdict was handed down in 2000 in the infamous Vizconde massacre case. Now, he continues to troll, giving self-serving interviews about his so-called act of defiance, when all he did was waste the time of the impeachment court by pulling a stunt.

Aguirre should do his work properly and stop being such a drama king.
