Policeman beaten up by a Civilian in Talibon Bohol

A police officer suffered bruises in his body and needed three stitches on his head after he was allegedly beaten up in Talibon by a resident of the said town on Saturday night.

The Talibon police identified the victim as PO2 Jovenile Rodriguez, a resident of Barangay Sto. Niño of the said town who is assigned at the Bien Unido Police Station.

Based on Rodriguez’ narration to Talibon police, the incident happened at around 6:30 p.m. when he was driving a tricycle to pick up his family at a birthday party in a nearby village.

However, a man later on identified as Albert Valmores flagged the victim down near a school in Barangay San Jose.

Valmores who was unprovoked then allegedly dashed towards Rodriguez and attacked the victim as he slowed down to make a turn.

Rodriguez was reportedly unable to fight back as he was seated in a driving position while he was beaten up by Valmores causing severe bruises in the victim’s body and cuts on his head.

According to authorities, the suspect only stopped attacking the victim when he was able to identify himself as a police officer.

This prompted Valmores to run towards a dark area in the village, police said.

Rodriguez reportedly chased Valmores but to no avail as the suspect was able to flee.

In a follow-up investigation, the Talibon police were also able to pinpoint Valmores, a resident of Barangay San Jose, as the suspect.

Police have already launched a hot pursuit against Valmores but he is no longer in his residence and even their village.

Meanwhile, Rodriguez who was already discharged from the hospital said that he is intending to pursue filing charges against the suspect.

Duterte lambasted ABS-CBN Chairman "Gabby "Lopez "mukha kang pera, p— ina ka"

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte on Tuesday lambasted  "Gabby" Lopez owner TV network ABS-CBN anew for allegedly not airing his campaign ads during the presidential elections.

Duterte said at the 120th anniversary of the Department of Justice in the Philippine International Convention Center a dash of comedy his tirade after mixing up the name of the media company's chairman.
"Sino naka-p— ina ninyong lahat. Ikaw? Gabby Concepcion, mukha kang pera, p— ina ka. Eh totoo man. Eh sus," 
Earlier in the speech, Duterte had mentioned Eugenio "Gabby" Lopez III, the chairman of ABS-CBN Corporation.
"ABS-CBN, isa ka pa. Dapat na-hostage ka si Gabby Lopez doon, isali kita," he said after he recalled the hostage-taking in the Davao Penal Colony during the early years of his mayorship.
But later in his rant, he mentioned Concepcion, who stars in GMA-7's hit series "Ika-6 na Utos".
Duterte corrected himself the third time he referred to Lopez.
"Makinig ka, Gabby Lopez — nag-place ako ng advertisement. Tinanggap ninyo ‘yung pera kong two million para kasi wala akong advertisement," he said.

"Tanggap nang tanggap kasi kayo ng pera in the name of greed. Tanggap ng pera tapos kung makasalita kayo pati ‘yung Inquirer, kaming mga––kung babuyin ninyo kaming mga taga-gobyerno, you picture us to be the corrupt o ano. Excuse me. Unfortunately, hindi ako ganoon. I would not have survived," he added.
ABS-CBN has been a frequent target of Duterte's rants, with the President accusing the network of accepting funds from him without airing his political ads.
Interestingly, Duterte also brought up in his speeches actress Sharon Cuneta, Concepcion's ex-wife and longtime onscreen partner.
Duterte said his daughter, Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte, had wanted to meet Cuneta for her birthday when she was younger. Duterte said he owed a debt of gratitude to Cuneta's husband, Senator Francis Pangilinan, for setting up the meeting.
Duterte then said Pangilinan was at fault for the senator's juvenile justice law, which the President blamed for the rise of criminality among minors.

National Security Adviser Espiron Revealed Four More Terrible Problems in Mindanao than Maute Group and Marawi Siege

National Security Adviser Hermogenes Esperon appealed to the people that they should be openminded regarding the implementation of martial law in Mindanao.

According to Esperon, the Marawi siege and the Maute terror group are not the only issues Mindanao is facing but there are also other extremist group like the Abu Sayyaf, Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters (BIFF), the leftist New People's Army (NPA) and illegal drugs syndicates.

He also stated that President Rodrigo Duterte is the only one who can determine whether the martial law should be withdrawn or not in the Mindanao Island.

Esperon called out to the public to try and understand the president and give martial law a chance to resolve the threats of terrorism in the region of Mindanao.

Abu Sayyaf which is unofficially known as  Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant – Philippines Province, a Jihadist militant group that is based in the Philippines for more than four decades.

The violent group was known to be responsible for the worst terrorist attacks in the Philippines.

The terrorist group had carried out several bombings, kidnappings, assassinations, and extortions which they called as their fight for an independent Islamic province in the country.

Abu Sayyaf have abducted at least 20 journalists since the 2000 who are mostly foreign and eventually releasing them after getting the ransom.

And now recently, President Rodrigo Duterte the Abu Sayyaf led by their local leader Hapilon have been working together with the Maute group to cause terror in Marawi City, Mindanao and have shown their "clear intention to establish an Islamic State".

One of the four other problems Mindanao is facing is the Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters or BIFF.

BIFF is a small Islamist militant organization based in Mindanao, Philippines and is mostly active within Maguindanao and other places in central Mindanao. It is also a divergent group of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front which was founded by Ameril Umbra Kato.

One of the latest gunfight between BIFF and government troops was the Mamasapano Clash (codenamed Oplan Exodus). The plan was to take out wanted Malaysian terrorist and bomb-maker Zulkifli Abdhir and other Malaysian terrorists or high-ranking members of the BIFF.

Unfortunately, forty four (44) of the Special Action Force and five civilians faced their deaths while 18 from the MILF and BIFF including Zulkifli Abdhir died which was confirmed by the FBI and PNP.

Despite the plan being a success, the deaths of the 44 SAF troopers became controversial as to why the terrorist group members overkilled them. One trooper was shot on the head when he was still very much alive, bullet proof vest was removed from the other.

On the other hand is the New People's Army is an armed communist group of the CPP and was formed by Bernabe Buscayno on The US State Department considers it as a Foreign Terrorist Organization and as a terroris group by the EU Common Foreign and Security Policy.

NPA rebels attacked a military detachment Cateek town of Davao Oriental. Government troops were outnumbers by the 40 NPA attackers who were in different positions around the patrol base. A soldier was wounded while residents states that 2 of the NPA rebels were severely wounded.

Duterte Administration declared and all-out-war against the communist rebels but Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana, the president is still open for peace talks.

Lastly, Duterte Administration's war against drugs is the most controversial around the world so far. Several small-time drug pushers and manufacturers have been killed during manhunt and raid operations for fighting back to the government authorities.

The drug syndicate in the country is protected by prominent political personalities and businessmen both local and from international. The drug syndicate has rooted deeply within the country which hinders the hard working president from getting rid of it, given the fact that many opposes and criticizes the president's efforts, even filing charges in the ICC to vindict him for the drug war.

Sen. Risa Hontiveros charged with kidnapping, wiretapping and Obstruction of Justice

Sen. Risa Hontiveros in now facing  criminal charges after former Negros Oriental Rep. Jing Paras   filed against the senator before the Ombudsman on monday for kidnapping, obstruction of justice, and wiretapping .

Paras said in an interview that he filed the complaint in response to a challenge posed by the senator.

“Since she challenged us to file a case, pinag-aralan namin,” Paras said.

In the complaint, Hontiveros is accused of kidnapping for taking custody of three minors who are supposed witnesses — aged 13, nine, and six — in the Delos Santos slay without the permission and knowledge of the parents of the said minors.

Senator Hontiveros is accused of kidnapping for allegedly convincing the minors to abandon the home of their parents to an undisclosed location without informing authorities.

“It is also very clear that she kept custody of these children from the period of Aug. 19, 2017 to Sept. 3, 2017 and turned over to the Senate custody only on Sept. 4, 2017 to testify in the Senate investigation, and then again took control and custody of the minors after said Senate hearing and placed them in the care of a certain Bishop Pablo David,” the complaint read.

Hontiveros’ wiretapping complaint meanwhile stemmed from her privilege speech where she showed a photo of a supposed exchange of text messages between Paras and Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre on hatching a plan to file cases against the senator.

Hontiveros also knowingly received a journalist’s photograph that illegally recorded Aguirre’s text messages with complainant Paras, which falls under wiretapping, the complaint read.

The complaint cited the Anti-Wiretapping law or Republic Act 4200, which reads “It shall be unlawful for any person, not being authorized by all the parties to any private communication or spoken word, to tap any wire or cable, or by using an other device or arrangement, to secretly overheard, intercept or record such communication…”

“The full text exchanges which were illegally recorded by a device upon the orders of Hontiveros-Baraquel… These text exchanges which were illegally recorded through a device, in this case a camera, was transformed into a picture by the photographer who made the secret recording…” the complaint read.

Hontiveros may also be liable for obstruction of justice for allegedly refusing to turn over the 13-year-old minor to the Public Attorney’s Office (PAO) and the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) conducting an investigation.

Despite a letter from PAO requesting the Senate to turn over the custody, Hontiveros allegedly “refused to turn over the witness… to PAO and NBI in the interest of justice and in carrying the purpose of solving a murder perpetrated on Kian Delos Santos,” the complaint read.

“Her refusal is an act which constitutes obstruction of justice, committed by means of preventing witnesses from testifying in any criminal proceeding,” the complaint read.

“It is pretty obvious that her refusal to turn over the witnesses to PAO and DOJ was motivated by politics with the sheer purpose of using the witness as a tool in her propaganda against her political enemies,” it added.

Netizens galit na galit sa mga oportunistang Liberal Party, nasaan ang hustisya sa mga inosenteng biktima?

A very horrific and appalling tragedy took away the life and innocence of a 16-year old who was only doing her tasks as a diligent student.

The victim, Grace Omadlao, was not only brutally RAPED but also KILLED by 4 suspects (a possibility of an underage male perpetrator), who are reportedly drug addicts and were caught in the CCTV, the night she went missing. According to Facebook news outlet, Grace was doing some computer tasks for her project in school. Her family got worried of her since it was already 10 PM and Grace was still not home, so her mother looked for her.

There was not a sign of her anywhere. The next day at around 5 AM, she was found lying on the ground lifeless and her face smashed that it could hardly be recognizable.

Grace's case was not the only one in the country wherein the suspects were under the influenced of illegal drugs. Several others, whose stories are yet to be told never got to get the justice they deserved.

But her ill fate created a widespread chaos between netizens who are searching for justice for this teenager.

In the video's comment section is the place where they voiced out their cries. One of the netizen who commented said it right and it was so on-point there's no way you can go against it.

Other than his comment, there were others which were mocking and trashing opportunistic politicians, Catholic priest and human rights advocates who are so fond of selective justice. They care too much for those who were suspected of involvement in illegal drug activities.

Why on earth do these Liberal cowards, human rights advocates and even the Roman Catholic church only seek justice for people who were victims of law enforcers?

Law-abiding citizens also experience injustice not to mention they're the ones who are paying taxes which is where these Opposition senators and the photo-ops-loving Vice President Leni Robredo. 

It's preposterous! Just why do they do such ridiculous schemes? 

Oh, right. Since these crimes happening to innocent Filipinos will never be tied nor pinned to President Rodrigo Duterte they will never care. In short, they won't get any merits or they won't be able to throw mud at the President but with drug suspects who were killed by the men of Duterte, the Liberal Party will take that as a chance to drag Duterte down the mud.

But the LP's struggle is real.

Due to their desperation to place their useless Robredo to where Duterte is, they could hardly think straight and plan properly.

Friendly reminder to the Liberal Party and their cronies, karma's a bitch.

To read the entire details regarding Grace, please scroll down.

What can you say to the Liberal Party? Do you think it is right to sensationalized deaths of alleged drug suspects and disregard about the sufferings of the innocent victims?
