By Gonzalo “Jun” Policarpio


If it’s true that Senator Panfilo “Ping” Lacson had nothing to do with the Dacer-Corbito double murder according to a government witness for the prosecution who turned the tables against Lacson’s accusers, then Lacson missed an opportunity to be on the level of two famous national heroes, Jose Rizal and Andres Bonifacio. Philippine history will tell that both of these heroes were convicted and executed under false charges. Did not Jesus Christ suffer the same fate?

It is greed and covetousness plus vengeance that can move a person or group to set up their target or buy false witnesses to accuse their common enemy of crimes that were not committed. That character trait originated from Satan himself.

I would suggest to Congresswoman Gloria Macapagal Arroyo to pass a law making individuals who maliciously file false charges against another as a criminal act punishable for the same penalty if the person would be found guilty of the false charges..

Anyway, Senator Lacson by evading the Arroyo government’s warrant for his arrest clearly decided not to be dead hero.

Here comes now a legislative proposal from a newly-elected senator to re-instate the death penalty.

To kill an innocent is definitely worse than to detain a hardcore criminal.

There is no more hope to resurrect a dead innocent; yet there’s still some hope for a murderer to repent for his sins and be upgraded to a person like some former convicts who now carry a Bible and preach the Word of God.
