    sana hindi mga minor ang mga suspects, kung hindi kawawa naman ang biktima di makakamtan ang hustisya.

      Kung menor de edad ang mga suspects at hindi mapaparusahan, patayin natin si Francis Pangilinan Cuneta dahil sa kanyang tang inang batas

  • andoybarrios

    dapat dun sa mga pumatay hindi na pinarating ng presinto at pinasunod na agad dun sa biktima…quick justice para hindi na magkagastos ang gobyerno sa kanila!

    dapat baguhin ang saligang batas. dahil noong menor de edad pa tayo, alam na natin ano ang mabuti at masama at may pag unawa na tayo na ang pagpatay ng tao ay isang krimen.

  • eagleclaw101

    Abolish that stupid Pangilinan Law for exempting minor
    offenders from criminal liability. Kung ang “Katangahan” nga sa batas, ay hindi
    sapat na dahilan upang bawasan ang kaparusahan… hindi ba’t mas lalo na yung mga
    kabataan na alam na ang mabuti at masama. 
    Kailangan nilang magtago at takasan ang batas… dahil alam nila na may
    nagawa silang paglabag.

    tangna na mo Pangilinan, sa katarantaduhan mo maraming mag nanakaw na kabataan, pag nahuli mo kahit di mo pa nakakanti ikaw pa may kasalaman, bopols, talaga, di mo pa pede ipakulong, ikaw pa makukulong, kupalogs talaga
