[VIDEO]: Suspect, Dr. Chao Tiao Yumol’s father was assassinated
Drug War Result
The alleged drug war of Dr. Chao Tiao Yumol results in the untimely death of his father. Earlier, he shoot and killed Basilan ex-mayor Rose Furigay and two others. This was during the supposedly Ateneo de Manila University’s graduation ceremony. Furigay’s daughter was also wounded in the incident. “Ubusan ng lahi” means “extermination of the family line.” Dr. Yumol is the whistleblower of the Basilan drug trade who took the matter into his own hands. So, will this ever stop?
The justice system of the drug war seems to fail. This is when witnesses cannot be protected by the people in authority. No one ever encourages revenge. But when one’s life is at stake, sound judgment can deteriorate. Human nature takes over. In this case, the brutal ancient practice reappears.
President Bongbong Marcos swears to investigate the case. But since this is already out of hand, a drastic move is needed to save the rest of the family members.
