The Unfair Justice System

The wife said the policemen prevented her from getting inside their house. From the outside, the alleged authorities dragged her husband into their house. Then, after few minutes, she heard two gun shots.

After the man was killed, the policemen claimed that he was a suspected drug pusher.

The helpless wife was left with a one year old boy and nothing to spend. She said, she just want to die too but she worry about her child. She also insisted that her husband is not into drug trade rather a construction worker.

If the man was really a drug pusher, does he deserve to die? Doesn’t he also have the right to due process? They may have killed one drug pusher but will that end the illegal operation perpetuated by the true culprit – the drug lords?

This incident did not happened once in the country. There are worst scenario when innocent lives were taken and became sacrificial lambs.

Unfortunately, the justice system in the Philippines is still weak. Delayed. Denied. Unfair.

To when will the rotten system changed? We don’t know.

    Justice is hard to come by in the Philippines. It seems only the rich get “justice”. If you read the news after the appointment of the new chief justice, Lourdes Sereno, several justices are not attend the flag ceremony. Those disgruntled justices are not beyond petty quarrels and harboring grudge for not being appointed chief justice by PNoy. Those justices are envious. Mga inggitero. This attitude already says a mouthful on the kind of justice that these magistrates will be able to give those who plead before them. In the Inquirer issue of Nov. 3, 2012, it was reported that former justice Nachura will stand as sponsor in the wedding of the daughter of Villaroza, an accused in the double murder of the Quintos brothers. Nachura was formerly with the Office of the Solicitor General who reversed the conviction of Villaroza as metted by the QC RTC. The newspapers are full of these kinds of stories which just tells us that justice is hard to come by in the Philippines.
