(Excuse my political opinion on the dismissal of PGMA’s Plunder case. I’m not a political expert nor a conspiracy theorist but I am simply expressing my opinion on the matter, especially on the reaction of fellow filipino citizens. Especially those who seem to be SEVERELY affected by the decision. Sarcasm aside.)
“Ex-Ombudsman Gutierrez urges public to respect dismissal of Arroyo case”
– GMA News Article (Source)
- Thumbs Up or the Good old-fashioned like: these ones are difficult to read. Some may have been avid likers who just like away. Some may be the older generation. Or those who were infavor of the decision and respects the Supreme Court.
- Angry reaction: the “makabayan” reaction. A reaction that when abused it becomes more and more annoying thereby degrading its purpose or meaning. That’s why netizens developed a term for them, Pinoyz/Pi-noise. They are the minority that represents the “Pulse” of the majority.
- Haha reaction: Just laughing of the disappointment maybe? Laughing at the comments perhaps? Disbelief this case ended in dismissal or mere acceptance that this is justice in the Philippines (and I am not sure how to describe it)
Facebook comments: so these are just shortened comments of people. Dropping unnecessary emojis, repetitive punctuation marks, and other other reactions such as Grr, hahahah. And yeah, swearing too.
” Yan ba ang #changeiscoming? I’m so disappointed Mr. President. Pinalaya ang naging salot ng bayan.”
I believe it was taught during elementary or high school that our government has three branches: Executive, Legislative and Judicial. All of them has different functions and one branch must NOT CURTAIL OR INTERFERE in doing these functions.(ideally of course). Apparently, this person believed that in the amount of time that our new president has, he prioritized the release of former president GMA. Our former president who served for almost 10 years, and with major issues in 2004 and 2009, labeled as “SALOT.” This shows one face of Philippine justice.
Since we have an imperfect society, we can’t deny that the executive branch overpowered or manipulated the SC. Being that the case, just recall who appointed the judges in supreme court. Why was the decision released now not earlier? Probably it took that long for them to study the case and give a decision.
“Let the world know. Ipabasa sa kanila ang mga ebidensya”
Are we not capable of handling our own judicial affairs? When the government seek the help of foreigners on matters that their help was necessary, you condemn their decision. For matters that our government can handle, you seek the help of foreigners. So this is the freedom our heroes fought for. The freedom to do as we please.
Ignorance sparks manipulation. Manipulation can lead to public distrust. Public distrust to the government can lead to the collapse of society.
“Dapat may website na iupload ang trial or evidence para transparent talaga.
If evere there is such a thing, will you even try to read it? C’mon, we can’t even read an entire news article, for God’s sake. And you want an entire trial proceedings to be published? I’m not a lawyer but that would be extremely difficult to understand.
Our own ignorance will limit the transparency of such cases. That’s why we have professionals to handle the matter. If I show you how to treat cancer, will you be able to understand? No. You just want the cure. Right?
-my head hurts. I already killed some time. So I’m going to end this.
After BINGE watching GOT, I believe we have LITTLE FINGERS in our government. They neither occupy a position nor want one. They just play the game and pick a side where they would likely win.
