DUTERTE-KIKO PANGILINAN SHOWDOWN LOOMS ON CHILDREN-CRIMINALS: Senator-Elect Francis Pangilinan, the author of the much-derided and much-hated Juvenile Justice Law (or Republic Act 9344, as amended, the law that allows children to commit heinous crimes and yet evade being arrested, detained, and then prosecuted and held liable for those crimes), must feel very, very slighted and uncomfortable with President Duterte’s moves to impose tougher disciplinary measures against children criminals.

Whereas Pangilinan and outgoing President Aquino (who signed the law amending Republic Act 9344 in 2013) did not want children criminals arrested, detained, or even investigated for any crime, Duterte is now pushing for a national curfew on children, and even jail terms for parents who fail to stop their kids from living a life of criminality.

Perhaps, somebody should study whether Pangilinan and Aquino could be charged with graft for crafting and enacting the amended Juvenile Justice Law, because, clearly, in the discharge of their duties and responsibilities as government officials, they caused undue injury not only to the children, their families, but to the entire Filipino nation as well, for coming up with a law that turned Filipino children into rabid criminals.

INC MEMBERS AGITATED BY ROBREDO PROCLAMATION: Now, it would seem that President Aquino, the Commission on Elections, and even Camarines Sur Rep. Leni Robredo, will have a lot of explaining to do to obviously-dissatisfied members of the Iglesia Ni Cristo (INC) who are now coming out in full force in social networking sites like Facebook, denouncing what they say was the wholesale stealing of their votes for Sen. Ferdinand Marcos Jr. in the May 09 elections.

It looks like INC members feel that the proclamation of Robredo as the vice president-elect of the country was part of a sinister scheme aimed not only to stop Marcos from becoming vice president, as President Aquino repeatedly announced before May 09, but more to  make the INC look like a Church that could no longer deliver the votes of its members, as it used to, because of internal division and discord.

I really don’t know how this will ultimately end or be resolved, but, from what I have been hearing, INC members are one in thinking that they could no longer remain silent while their votes are being stolen, and while politicians are maneuvering to sow intrigue among their leaders in a bid to destroy the might of the Church in solidly voting for chosen candidates.
