And An OLD TESTAMENT GOD SHALL SMOTE Them...
Can someone conjure up "Jules",
Samuel L. Jackson's hitman in Pulp Fiction?
I'd love for him to deliver his "Ezekiel 25:17" speech
in his "Voice of God" baritone to GMA and Co.,
right before he "pops a cap in their ass":
by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men.
Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will,
shepherds the weak through the valley of the darkness.
For he is truly his brother's keeper
and the finder of lost children.
And I will strike down upon thee
with great vengeance
and furious anger those who attempt
to poison and destroy my brothers.
And you will know I am the Lord
when I lay my vengeance upon you."
Justice Secretary Raul Gonzalez
on Thursday said Vivian and Anders Hultman
and that the couple knew as far back as 1999
that their daughter’s murderer would someday be paroled
or pardoned and released from jail.
Gonzalez was reacting to the Sweden-based Hultmans’
expressions of shock and anger after Claudio Teehankee Jr.,
the convicted murderer of their daughter Maureen,
was granted executive clemency by President Gloria Makapal-Ako Yo!
without their knowledge.
“I don’t think we have to fly to Sweden just to notify them,”
the justice secretary told reporters.
“And they know, based on this document,
that this was going to happen.
The room that served as Claudio Teehankee Jr.’s “halfway house”
in the New Bilibid Prison (NBP) is furnished with a
42-inch LCD television set, a queen-size bed
and a refrigerator.
Members of the media were allowed on Thursday
into the vinyl-tiled room owned by
former Zamboanga del Norte Rep. Romeo Jalosjos,
a convicted child rapist
who had become fast friends with Teehankee.
Jalosjos’ caretaker, who regularly cleans the room,
allowed members of the media to check out
what looked like a bachelor pad
in which the TV set hooked to cable service stood out.
(A popular appliance store in Alabang sells a similar TV set for about P150,000.)
The Philippine Daily Inquirer noted
an electric stove and a personal refrigerator,
as well as the queen-size bed and its soft mattress.
There is also a small bathroom covered with white ceramic tiles
and equipped with a hot-and-cold shower
hooked to a water pump to maintain constant pressure.
