SELECTIVE JUSTICE AT PLAY AGAIN IN RESORTS WORLD PROBE?  Well, here we go again—in this world of selective justice that is called the Philippines, we see only the small fries getting fried, literally and figuratively, with punishments, while the big fries get away scot-free and untainted with any liabilities.

I am referring here to the pronouncement of the Philippine National Police’s Supervisory Office for Security and Investigation Agency (SOSIA) that its current focus of investigations into the Resorts World Complex attack on June 02, 2017 has shifted to the administrative and financial obligations of the security agency of the hotel.

Whoa! Not so fast, Senior Supt. Ildebrandi Usana, deputy chief of SOSIA, in your attempts to make the security agency liable. Yes, of course, we know that the agency has liabilities, but why are you focusing only on the liabilities of that agency? How about the liabilities of the hotel owners themselves for the death of the 38 people who perished in the incident? No need to look into it anymore, Mr. Usana?

BOARD MEMBER-HUSBAND KILLS MAYOR-WIFE IN BOHOL? That there is something gravely wrong among us Filipinos seems to have been proved eloquently once again with the news that a Bohol provincial legislator, 2nd District Board Member Rey Nino Boniel, was arrested by the police in connection with the murder of his wife, Bien Unido, Bohol Mayor Gisela Bendong Boniel.

Police are saying there are witnesses who are claiming that Rey masterminded the kidnapping and subsequent gun-slaying and throwing of Gisela’s body to the sea, allegedly because of money problems in their family. Media photos later showed Rey being led in handcuffs inside a police station obviously in connection with Gisela’s death.

Many are wondering, how could highly-placed members of society and of government, and conceded political leaders in Bohol like Rey and Gisela, become entangled about money problems in a manner that enabled one of them to kill the other? How did they fail to find an acceptable solution to their problems? How were they able to lose their sense of balance in dealing with their marital disagreements?

HOW DID FILIPINOS BECOME SO DEVILISH? This, I am sorry to say, is what I have been harping about in this column for a good number of years now. Whether we care to admit it or not, Filipinos from all walks of life have become wicked, sinful, and outright evil. Without exception, we have become capable of committing gruesome and heinous crimes, even against our loved ones and close members of our families.

How we came to be so is not too difficult to perceive. Many, if not all, of us no longer fear and love God. We no longer fear and love God because we no longer know who He is and what He can do. We no longer know God and we no longer know what He can do because we no longer listen to, nor obey, His commands, as written in the Bible.

Since we no longer listen to, nor obey, God’s commands in the Bible, we grew up without Him in our lives. Since God was not with us as we were growing up, it was His enemy, the devil, that came to us, entering our minds, controlling our spirits, and enabling us to be wicked, sinful, and evil. We must wake up from this deadly stupor now, lest we all find ourselves suffering in hell in eternity!
