Woes Of News...

.:You Call This News?!?:.

So yeah, Manny Pacquiao won again, but given the lead-up to the fight, do you call this newsworthy?

It's ridiculous how even Manny Pacquiao's dinner menu makes it to the headlines. I don't need to know about this pompous, self-deluded bastich when there are people trying to ferret out what's going on in Burma and are in dire need of airtime, dammit.

.:You Let This Guy Go Out On Bail?:.

Welcome to the justice system. For a measly 80,000 pesos, Atty. Manuel Hernandez gets to walk around before his day in court on bail, despite killing two people in broad daylight over a traffic altercation.

Apparently, they are downgrading his case from murder to a homicide, and quite frankly, I am incensed they are doing this.

The man shot a total of eight bullets into two people, six of them on one person. If this were merely homicide, then he could've stopped after shooting, once, maybe even twice. Shooting someone in cold blood six times betrays that this was no longer a spur of the moment thing. He had four shots after the first two to change his mind, but he didn't.

There is a strong case against him, and for good reason. That man should not be out on bail. He really shouldn't.
