This only goes to solidify my belief that our country needs some serious change in our leadership.
Cathy and I were discussing in the car the other day how, instead of feeling safe, the reaction of most Filipinos when they see a policeman is usually one of unease, fear, and uncertainty. Our lawmakers and law enforcers, those people we're supposed to trust with our lives, and whose wages are paid for by our taxes, are the ones responsible for most kidnapping situations, flagrant law violations, and graft and corruption on a shockingly immense scale.
Here we have a former congressman as the primary suspect for a Fil-Chinese boy's abduction. He is a former actor and sportsman, no less! Assisting him in his heinous activities are the town sheriff and a couple of other lawmen.
Good golly! If we cannot trust our legislators and law enforcers to protect us, what will become of our nation?
