Mayor Erap’s ‘jueteng’ justification

/ 09:12 PM July 26, 2013

If Mayor Joseph Estrada justifies  jueteng  in Manila by the absence of alternative livelihood for those involved in its operation (Metro, 7/9/13), he might as well invoke the same justification for the video  karera, fruit games, and basketball ending. He either invokes such justification for all forms of illegal gambling, or for none at all.

That is, if any form of gambling is justifiable at all.
