RE: Mayor Unsay Andal Ampatuan Jr.’s surrender to authorities must not end the investigation

 Governor Unsay Andal Sr. must also submit himself to the authorities because if his son was the masterminded the killing of the 57 innocent people in Maguindanao province 4 days ago, presumably he gave his son the authority for the brutal killings.

RE: Properly restrained

 Now we have seen what is or how is properly restrain is done, it is done without handcuffs, just the two escorts beside the arrested criminal holding him. Remember the word used is "PROPERLY RESTRAINED."

RE: Ampatuan turns self in

 Oh my God! Bakit until now parang wala pa ring linaw ang imbistigasyon? May I ask to the government kung may suspect na sa nangyaring patayan o trahedya sa Mindanao bakit hindi pa ninyo iniimbitahan? I mean imbistigahan? 4 days na ang nakalipas parang malabo pa yata na mahuli ang mga criminal.

RE: Massacre in Maguindanao

 Mga ewan yung pumatay. They did not think about the implications of their actions. Stupid yung nag-utos sa kanila. Kawawa yung mga namatay!

RE: Inutil ang Presidente

 Four (4) days after the Maguindanao massacre happened inutil pa rin ang Presidente ng Pilipinas! Ito ba'y dahil malapit o meron espesyal na relasyon sa inyo ang mastermind at gumawa ng walang kasintulad na kahayupan sa buong kasaysayan ng mundo?

RE: Constitutional change is needed

 It is unfortunate that institutions/individuals that advocates for constitutional protection for every citizen, are the ones that are being savagely violated. And if that's not ironic enough, the very constitution that is relied upon by the brave and the innocent, is also the one that the evils and cowards use to save themselves. Something is not right.
