Typical drama of the Philippines

 

 

 

If you mean about real people , with real misery , and real problems- you are absolutely correct !!

 

How dare people have concerns over forced evictions of squatters and people losing everything in floods. Altho I'm sure that your worries about them are very genuine

 

 

I'm sure you are a very nice person but your post sounds very smug

Which is why he didn't accept an order from the mayor. She should have contacted the judge.

 

The mayor is a lawyer, she knew this. I appears that there was an order staying the demolition that had not been served, that the mayor knew about.

 

If she had contacted the judge, she would have had to make the judge aware of this which would have stopped the demolition anyway.

The Stay Order was issued by the same Judge who issued the Demolition Order, so I fail to see why she should have to contact the Judge and tell him since he already knew!

 

When the Mayor arrived at the Sitio, the Sheriff - who was supposed to be in charge - was nowhere to be seen. He was, in fact, in hiding and the Mayor took control of the situation, there being no-one else there at the time. Had she not arrived when she did, the riot would have escalated with consequent bloodshed and quite possibly the few Police that were on duty there would have lost control thus endangering the Sheriff's life. Her arrival saved his skin.

 

If her interest was stopping a riot she should have done that in the most expedient manner.
She did. Her very presence quickly quelled the uprising.

 

She spent her time with flood victims, whose plight was exacerbated because of quarrying allowed by permits from her office, issued to family members.
A permit was issued to a family member of a City Councillor but you seem to infer some direct connection between the Mayor and the permit holder which doesn't exist.

 

Interesting to note that the Cebu Mayor has a rather different priorities when it comes to dealing with the city's less fortunate inhabitants. On June 28 he summarily dismissed fifteen contracted members of staff working for the City's Division for the Welfare of the Urban Poor stating that their jobs no longer exist; some of those fired had over ten years' of loyal service to the Council. But then mysterious fires rather than Sheriffs and Court Orders are the usual means of shanty clearance there.

No matter what the law says and no matter whether the sheriff should have waited another two hours or not, no amount of justifying and obfuscating can change the fact that the mayor committed assault. It is really just that simple and obvious for all to see on the video.

 

Do you think they would say any thing about a women punching a man back in the day of the wild wild west. Well take a look where you are man. You are in the wild wild east. Your logic and your rules don,t amount to a hill of beans here. If you start living like you live in the wild west days it will feel more normal for you

Punched sheriff wants to inhibit from demolition duty

 

DAVAO CITY -- The court sheriff who got blows from Mayor Sara Duterte for hastily implementing a writ of demolition in a village here has asked the court for his inhibition from future demolition activities in the area.

 

"Whatever act the undersigned may prefer in the implementation of the said writ of demolition may now be doubtful. This request is also intended to save demolition proceedings from doubt, considering what happened to me during the demolition," sheriff Abe Andres wrote in his Sheriff's Report submitted to Davao Regional Trial Court on Tuesday.

 

In the same report, Andres said he followed every procedure required before serving the writ of demolition and notice to vacate, and had these received by the parties involved and the government offices concerned.

 

Andres got several blows on the face and back from the irate Duterte when he implemented the court order last Friday in Barangay Kapitan Tomas Monteverde Sr. in Soliman, Agdao, in spite of the mayor's request for a two-hour grace period.

 

In his report, Andres admitted receiving word from City Hall personnel around 8:40 a.m. that the mayor had asked to delay the demolition for two hours.

 

In turn, he told the City Hall staff to inform Judge Emmanuel Carpio of Regional Trial Court (RTC) Branch 16 about the request instead since his role is but ministerial and that he cannot act on the request.

 

He said he arrived in the area around 8:30 a.m. after a meeting in Sta. Ana Police Precinct where he informed the policemen and the representatives of the plaintiff that he has a written request for Geodetic Engineer Julius Irvin A. Perez to survey and mark the area affected by the writ of demolition.

 

He said that upon his arrival, he asked the residents to just cooperate and so the residents agreed that Perez will conduct the survey to mark out the areas defined in the court order.

 

By 9:30 a.m., he said, Police Senior Inspector Ronald Lao, Perez, and barangay captain Fulgencio Pavo informed him that the occupants were insisting that the survey be defined, claiming there were houses that were not covered by the demolition order but are in danger of being demolished. Again, Andres said, he told the men that unless he received no advice from the court about their request then he couldn't do anything about it.

 

Chaos broke out 10 minutes later although no demolition has yet started, as the occupants started throwing stones toward the police and the demolition team. Improvised arrows also flew, he said.

 

He said Duterte arrived around 9:55 a.m. and upon summoning him, punched him in the face several times.

 

However, police authorities here are training their sight not to the punching mayor but to her police escort caught by television cameras dragging the court sheriff toward Duterte at the height of the confrontation.

Thanks for the advice but I have lived here for more than ten years, so I think I have a pretty good handle on how to behave. BTW, how long have you lived here?

I agree with you - the law SHOULD be obeyed ! I notice that you did not say the law MUST be obeyed ! There is a big difference. If it were cut and dry there would be no need for defense lawyers nor for appeal judges- but things are NOT cut and dry. They are open to interpretation. That is why you are very wrong when you say that the law is not up for debate- because it very much so is up for debate. In most countries the government only passes the laws and leaves it up to the courts to interpret them - thats why it is an ongoing process - and why the same law is applied differently from time to time . [ there are some exceptions]

If you will please do some research into how laws are passed and applied- and why - you will come to realize that the statement is not nearly as asinine as you may think. Jurisprudence is not a simple concept. If you will just read the part of the previous judgment in the case against the sheriff you will get an idea of what i am talking about. The judge discussed the concept of applying the law narrowly .

 

 

 

 

well that pretty much settles that then !! Will you be chiseling that in a stone tablet for us ??

There you go again! It's not the law that is open to interpretation it's the punishment that's always debatable. The punishment is the reason for defense lawyers and appeal judges. If someone breaks the law by stealing something whether it's a loaf of bread or $1 million dollars has no bearing on the law. Both of the people broke the law..the law still stands..it's the punishment that is open to interpretation. Extenuating circumstances don't change the law. They may change the outcome of the trial and they may mitigate the punishment but they don't change the law. The law is never open to debate...it's the punishment and penalty that is debated. Mayors, Sheriffs, Judges and lawyers have no choice but to uphold the law..that is what they swore to do.

Nope, apparently you can't read. His advice was about how to behave in the place I live. I think the experience of having spent 10 years here is directly relevant to knowing how to behave here. What has age got to do with it?

I seriously hope & prey that the posters who are condemning this woman are just trolling for a bit of fun, failing that…I just hope they have been boxed into a corner from reasoned argument and don’t know how to say they made a mistake & move on.

 

Could someone please explain to me how the Sheriff was acting in anyone but his own self-interests– totally out of touch with the week that Davao had been going through & the implications for the families he was about to put on the street. If you think you can explain his actions to be altruistic – I am all ears

 

What the Philippines need is a ruling class who take even the slightest interest in ALL their citizens!

 

 

 

Hey, how are we planning to celebrate the first anniversary of the Manila Hostage Taking incident in a few weeks…remember…the one which started peacefully but soured when the self-obsessed office of the ombudsman told the crazed Mendoza “We will review your case” …remember how that ended?

 

Last year’shostage crisis could have ended worse if Sheriff AbeAndres (or was that Sheriff Rosco P. Coltrane) was responsible (along withall the other morons assembled with one thing on their minds…themselves)

 

Sara Duterte for president…a woman with a real passion for the people…

They may well make us eat our words. There are moves afoot to have the Mayor, the Vice-Mayor and his son, a Councilman, all removed from public office. If successful, that would leave the way clear for a notorious clan, who are no strangers to violence and have blood on their hands, to move in and seize control. More than that, I am not prepared to say here.

If that happens, it will be the first time we might see some kind of people power to occur in Davao. There are some organization already rallying behind the Mayor although i don't approve of his brother paolo trying to copy the Vice-Mayor's style.
