    Everytime you watch news report about fire, it happens in the squatters’ area. These colonies pose danger to the community, from social problem to peace and order. 

    When will the government of the Philippines realize that the illegal settlers are lawbreakers and that the anti-squatting law must be protected and implemented rigidly.

    Lawlessness eats the moral fiber of the Pilipinos as the leaders seem to have none of this. Just look at the stupid Lina Law! No politician from Congress has the backbone to amend it! Crass!
