“Justified Killing”

Hindi ko maintindihan ang ibang mga tao, minsan. So, basta walang kinalaman sayo, kebs ka na lang? Ninanakawan na kapitbahay mo, narape yung kakilala mo, tinorture yung nakatira sa kabilang kalsada niyo, kebs lang?

“Justified killing” daw. Define justified killings? Pag sabi ng gobyerno na dapat mamatay ang isang tao, regardless kung inosente siya, kebs lang?

Remember martial law? Those killings, rape, tortures were “justified” according to those in position. Yung ibang tao, for example, nag babasketball lang sa labas ng bahay nila, tapos dinampot na lang bigla, tapos tinorture at binintangan ng kung anu-ano. ‘Justified’ ba yun sayo? Pwede mong sabihin sa akin that this would never happen, but nobody thought that these things would happen when people voted for Marcos before.

I have to admit that sometimes I see humans as just living piles of flesh. But I have never wished for people to be treated this way, the same way that I will never wish for them to happen to any of my family or friends.

Absolute power, corrupts absolutely. It happened before, and it can always happen again.
