The Alabang Boys Drug Scandal

leave a comment »

The following affluent kids, Joseph Ramirez Tecson, Jorge Giordano Joseph and Richard Santos Brodette, now known as “The Alabang boys, are caught in a buy bust operation by PDEA agents on September 2008.

This case became sensational when DOJ after three months of investigation dismissed the complaints due to evidence insufficiency. PDEA reacted to the resolution by charging that a bribery occurred between the suspects and the justice prosecutors. According to PDEA, this case was not the first to be dismissed by the Justice Department. There were previous instances were drug suspects got away easily.

This causes the “tug-of-war” between the Justice Department and the Drug Enforcement Agency. The case is now under scrutiny of the Congress.

Numerous drug cases were dismissed by the Justice Department which they claim to have insufficient evidence. While the Drug Enforcement Agency presented hudreds of millions worth chemicals and equipment, it is still not enough to pin down these criminals. So, the question is, “What is the criteria?”

This act clearly shows that the Philippine justice system is rotting. It is being screwed up. It only favors the rich and the powerful. Our justice system is not working. And who’s in charge of this rotting system?

Drug dealers are criminals because they destroy innocent lives. They destroy families, friends and the society. They should be punished. They must pay for those destroyed lives and for the agonies.

It is not surprising to hear that some concerned groups are advocating “DEATH PENALTY”.
