A QUESTION OF FAIRNESS


I really wasn't going to bother with the whole jueteng scandal that's in the front pages nowadays. But the issue persists, and more stupid things are said about it, that I might as well give my token remarks.
Once again, my source of inspiration is a simple-minded editorial by the Inquirer

INCOMPETENCE =/= LIABILITY


Even without the naming of names, it is quite safe to say that the Justice department's report on the August 23 hostage-taking incident is another manifestation of the administration's bloated sense of importance and righteousness. A way to show that all the media coverage of the hearings the past weeks was not in vain. But this is all unproductive scapegoating. And unless an accomplice could be found, the only person who is liable in this case is the former cop (and formerly alive human being) Rolando Mendoza. Sad but true, given that the cops and media messed the thing up so bad, it may have been better if they were outright accomplices.
