Cop on a rampage

The violent dispersal in front of the US embassy should be the last of its kind. It can’t get any simpler than that.

The democratic space afforded to the marginalized indigenous groups was simply being exercised. 

Emboldened by the refreshing nationalist and pro-people tone of the President, their actions were merely supporting Malacanang’s own desires for an independent foreign policy. 

They were simply claiming their right to sit at the national conversation. They wanted nothing more than their voices, drowned out in the din of Manila's media reports, to be heard.

Why, in Heaven’s name, were they treated the way they were, by Manila's police?

There is no excuse for such a murderous streak among our supposed authorities. Government should get to the bottom of this atrocity, catch the erring policeman and his accomplices, if any, and apply the full force of the law upon them.

How about it, General Bato?

How about it, President Duterte?
