Is this the brand new morality?

Lingayen-Dagupan Archbishop Socrates Villegas has lashed out the general public’s lack of shock within the face of the systematic killing of the poor within the title of President Rodrigo Duterte’s struggle on medication whereas the wealthy and nicely linked have been left untouched whereas authorities have been blind and deaf on the P6.four billion shabu from China.

Villegas’ anger and frustration have been palpable in his assertion condemning the bloodiest week in Duterte’s temporary however extremely violent struggle on medication by which he goaded the police to go onerous on drug suspects as the final word resolution to the drug downside with a promise of pardon ought to they be convicted for killing their prey.
Villegas requested:

“Bakit kakarampot na lamang ang kababayang naaawa sa mga ulila? Hindi na ba tayo marunong umiyak? Bakit hindi na tayo nasisindak sa tunog ng baril at agos ng dugo sa bangketa?”
“Bakit walang nagagalit laban sa drogang ipinasok galing Tsina? Bakit ang mga mahihirap na lang lagi ang binabaril at kapag mayamang ‘malakas sa itaas’ ay kailangan muna ng imbestigasyon at affidavit?”

Villegas raged on the chaos and blood particularly in squatters areas the place our bodies of moms, fathers, husbands, wives, sons, and daughters with bullet holes have piled up regardless of pleas for mercy.

Villegas stated: “Pakiusap na ‘Huwag po!’ naririnig sa mga eskinita at tambakan. Patayan sa magdamag. Panaghoy at hikbi sa madaling araw galing sa mga ulila. Ang multo ng mga pinatay ay humihingi ng awa. Ang isip ng mga buhay ay puno ng lungkot at takot: ‘Baka ako na ang isusunod? Sino ang nakatitiyak’. Ang gulo ng bayan!”

Villegas was aghast at how the general public might simply nod their head in approval when Duterte cheered on the recent killing spree by declaring that having 32 deaths daily would make him comfortable.

“Pumapalakpak ang kababayan at sumisigaw nang may ngiti ‘Dapat lang!’ habang binibilang ang bangkay sa dilim, habang bumabaybay sa kaliwa’t kanang lamay sa patay,” stated Villegas.

“Pagpatay daw ang lunas sa lahat ng kasamaan. Pagpatay daw ang dapat para sa taong sinira ng droga. Ang bayang ayaw daw sa droga ay dapat na pumayag na patayin ang pusher. Kapag nanindigan para sa dukhang na tokhang, tiyak na maliligo ka sa mura at banta. Marami naman ang nagpapatakot,” he added.

Villegas questioned if this has turn into the brand new regular the place officers who kill have been honored whereas those that have been killed have been blamed for his or her destiny.

He requested who would defend the poor if they’ve been killed on the police’s uniform excuse that drug suspects resisted arrest and fought again or in a single single Filipino phrase “nanlaban.”
Villegas requested his flock to make a stand, search forgiveness from God as a result of it was not within the Filipinos’ nature to be proud of killings.
