While we all grieve silently and feel hopeless, what with seeing huge masses of people walking like ghosts amidst a sea of chaos and destruction, the House just released their decision exonerating Ombusman Merceditas Gutierrez from accusations of violating the Constitution. The impeachment complaint against her was dismissed.
The House acted like a thief in the dead of the night, stealing our hopes and bashing completely our idea of justice, while we all stare in our television screens in catatonic state. The stealing came in perfect timing, with the country all busy helping each other out of their sorry state. No one was able to shout " injustice!" or even a joke like "lutong makaw", because everyone was busy trying to think of ways to save their kababayans from imminent death.
It was timing extraordinaire, probably concocted by those familiar with stealing voices, and killing hopes.
Gutierrez and all those who stole our very souls, laugh in the comforts of their homes, and feel more embolden to do more ass-licking to those who steal and those who corrupt our government.
We just lost out of the justice game.
