Is Death Penalty the Solution to Child Rape-Slay?

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
I remember during President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo’s time – that there was great need for the Death Penalty to be abolished because of the loop holes in the Philippine’s justice system. Many innocent people paid for crimes they did not commit. Often, they were already dead when the real perpetrators are put into jail. However in the present time,  Child Rape-Slay cases are on the rise. Like this one:

Rape-slay suspect nabbed in Manila

By: Aie Balagtas See

MANILA, Philippines – The Manila Police District arrested a pedicab driver for allegedly raping and killing a six-year-old girl in Paco, Manila on Monday night.

Police identified the suspect as Mark Avila, 29.

Avila was driving his pedicab when operatives of the MPD-homicide division and Station 10 pounced on him.  http://www.philstar.com/metro/2014/01/22/1281484/rape-slay-suspect-nabbed-manila


Death Penalty can work well like in Brunei – where crime rate is law because of harsh punishments but will it work in the Philippines – where corruption is eminent? Would it be better to strengthen the justice system first before resorting to Death Penalty? Quite a thought and child protection is for sure an immediate challenge for the government to act upon – so that our children can be safe at home!

Love is Nothing when the Subject is Dead

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
We all die regardless of our status but sometimes many parents end up being so cruel in protecting their children – not knowing that they could scar them for life. This video shows a protective father that hindered the love affair of his daughter for obvious reasons. However, when the lover got killed while protecting her – there’s nothing a father could do to pacify her:

A heart touching Love story that would make you cry!

Parents must guide their children to the right path but still, their lives do not belong to their father and mother only. They have to grow up and find their own purpose. So, if they fall while soul searching – the parents can only give advices and support to help them stand up again but never control their choices and direction because fate does not belong to anyone in this world. You do not want to be the reason of your loved ones grief for life, right?

Is it Family or Fame for UFC’s Silva?

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
We can only guess if it’s going to be family or fame for UFC’s Anderson Silva after his recent knee injury captured in this video during his fight with Chris Weidman. His son is advocating for his retirement according to this article from bleacher report. It may seem like a difficult family decision but it is certain that something else is going on in every athlete’s mind who are in situations like this, including Silva. Watch how few minutes of wrong move can get a great athlete in Martial Arts defeated:

Injuries are common in sports and professional athletes are taking them as part of the game. It’s not a big deal for them to use this as an excuse to leave the field that they love most over their personal life. This does not mean that they do not care for their family – they just think that they exist because of what they do and for sure their family will understand their priorities as they go along. So, let’s just wait for Silva’s coming back after 5 months or so!

Tougher Regulations Needed in the Calamity-Prone Philippines

Firecrackers

Typhoon Yolanda restoration efforts in the Philippines are far from over  but man-made disasters started to happen as New Year celebrations unfold. This is despite the Department of Health’s anti-firecrackers campaign that made them dance all the way through various communities. The dance promo and the rest of the information drive obviously did not work. Read this:

Philippine New Year celebrations leave hundreds injured

by: www.bbc.co.uk

At least one person has been killed and nearly 600 others injured by New Year fireworks and gunfire in the Philippines, officials have said.

A baby was killed by a stray bullet, and a teenager is reported to have been killed by a firecracker display. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-25566056


It’s always been known that the Filipino masses need ample discipline to be able to live safely. The poor mentality just get the worst of them prioritizing fun over safety. Tougher regulations are needed badly before innocent children get killed again due to stray bullets and body parts get amputated from firecracker accidents and mishandling.

A Tribute to Paul Walker


Posted at YouTube by: Fast & Furious

No doubt, he’s a great guy after all but because we are all mortals, we just have to bear the consequences of our existence. Death is as natural as being born and even if how painful it is to witness the death of a loved one, life goes on for the surviving family and friends. May Paul Walker rest in peace. He indeed had a beautiful life!
