I will not take revenge



I am overwhelmed by the outpouring of public support for me on that one-way brawl at the NAIA 3 involving me and show-biz couple Raymart Santiago and Claudine Barretto and their friends.

I got goose bumps on Monday as I reviewed the text messages in my cellular phones and e-mails more than two weeks after the incident.

The sympathy and support I got—and still getting—from friends and strangers show that Filipinos root for the underdog.

Some of the messages call for revenge which—I have decided since after the incident—I will never resort to.

The messages below are typical:

“Kuya, andito lang po ako. sabihin n’yo lang at ako na ang bahala (I am here. Just tell me and I’ll take care of everything),” said a message from a person I helped through my radio program, “Isumbong Mo kay Tulfo,” many years ago.

“Kung gusto mong bumawi, sabihin mo lang (If you want revenge, just say so),” wrote my contact from the underworld when I was still covering the police beat decades ago.

But the most touching message comes from a retired general who was once my father’s subordinate officer and whom I covered as a police reporter.

“Touching” because after all these years this retired general has not forgotten his bond with my Old Man and my friendship with him.

The old soldier’s message reads:

“Carry on the good fight vs the abuses of the rich and powerful. Just like your dad we old constables still around praying that all Filipinos must work hard to make criminals feel that they cannot get away with their crimes. I saw the video Mon and the anger, the rage in me against abusive people surged when those cowardly punks rained blows on one already down. Show no mercy Mon and let them pay for their arrogant abuse of power. Txt me their names and our friends will make them regret they

ever lived.”

The retired general, who fought coup plotters during the time of President Cory Aquino, still has many people in the police and military at his beck and call, as well as members of the underworld.

Sir, thank you for the sympathy and support, but I’d rather leave it to the courts to exact revenge for me.

*                                *                               *

I had a chance to get back at my attackers right there and then.

I could have run to the counter, where guns deposited at the airport of origin can be retrieved by gun-carrying plane passengers, taken my gun and started shooting.

But I didn’t do that. It didn’t even occur to me to do that.

Firstly, I am a responsible gun owner. My life was no longer in danger after I was beaten up and resorting to my gun would be cowardice.

Secondly, and which is more important, I am already a spiritual person.

Roque Estacio won a labor case against his former employer, TAC Furniture and Interior Inc., and was awarded P779,000.

Arbiter Michaela Lontoc of the National Labor Relations Commission (NLRC) decided in favor of Estacio.

On May 27, 2011, the NLRC sheriff, took hold of Estacio’s former employer’s car so the monetary award could be paid.

Lontoc allegedly asked Estacio to agree to his former employer’s request that the monetary reward be reduced to P300,000.

Estacio said he turned down the request as he would have to pay his lawyer and get back expenses incurred in the years of litigation.

Lontoc allegedly returned the car to Estacio’s former employer when he didn’t agree.

Why was Lontoc lawyering for Estacio’s former employer?

       yes as far as what I read…he was saying he have underworld connections..so what????it only shows that he is trying to say NO REVENGE but at the back of his mind..mayroon maghihiganti para sa kanya kung gugustuhin lang nya..wow..ke retired Gen. o mga siga I don’t think tama ito na gamitin nya..which he said he won’t..but then the way he wrote this article..may dating na threat..

      • John_Galt_II

        Kaya nga. Nanakot ang animal. Pero puro hangin lang yan!

  • sacrebleau

    The mention of your connections sounds like a veiled threat – if not a way of handwashing, absolving yourself of guilt if anything bad happens to the Santiago camp.

    • turkak

      SACREBAYOT nandito ka na naman !!! hahahahahahahah

  • fasoriamd

    Thank you Mr. Tulfo for following the law. I do agree with you. Let the court decide who is to blame. Although a lot of felons  are still on the loose backed by those people who trample on somebody’s right, I still believe that our country is still ruled by law.    


    Mon Tulfo is not threatening the celebrity couple. He is only telling them that he has no control over the actions of his friends and supporters.

    But to the beke in pink T shirt who boxed Pareng Mon Tulfo. “Lintik lang ang walang ganti.” LOL.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/NNAJQQUKFAB4DITXYZPSG26FYA Martin

    Mon should not hide under his pen as columnist here.  The Santiagos are of disadvantage because they’re not journalists.  While Mon said he would not take revenge, he cited all his friends who are willing to do it for him.  So if something happens to one of the Santiagos, Mon has a ready excuse saying he has nothing to do with it.  Nice try, Mon.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_T6YOSLK74SEBOC3SNZE6NPPJWM ted

       hey retard martin, read and read the article over and over again.,but i guess you are not fully sane

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_ANFIUGORRH3AAYDBDU643NW2K4 Jason

      What Santiagos are you talking about? It is only Raymart among the Santiagos who’s in this controversy. Man, keep you facts straight. If you’re talking about Raymart and Claudine how come they are on the down side? Did you see the video? Is that the epitome of being on the Cons position? Mon  is not threatening on this article. What he said is that there are lots of people who would like to give him a hand to get back at those “people” but he do not want to. Read the article once more.

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/NNAJQQUKFAB4DITXYZPSG26FYA Martin

        Of course I was referring to the Santiago couple, idiot !

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_ANFIUGORRH3AAYDBDU643NW2K4 Jason

        Hey, haven’t you completed your college degree or perhaps maybe you did not even go to college and just finished senior high school. Calling someone an idiot in an online forum is very unethical. Did I say something bad against you? Nada! I will not get back at you by saying the same words dude. I will just challenge you to get your facts straight.. I guess you’re supposed to say Mr and Mrs Santiago and just Santiagos. Simple grammar. Anyway, going back if something bad happens to “them” does it mean Mon Tulfo is one to be blamed right away? Lots of Mon supporters are ready to take that fight for him. He has no control over it. The only thing he can do is to put them at bay.Now, what’s wrong with Mon telling to the public about his No Revenge attitude in  spite of the fact that many people are willing to revenge for him? wake up Martin.

  • 2GEMINI1

    Mr. Mon Tulfo.  I saw the video. Read tons of news coverage on the incident.  As per the video, it spoke volumes.  Lots of peole say it was just the tail end of the incident, and that it’s not an accurate account of what happened prior to that.  All I can say is, the man is down, have mercy!  Only the cowards will keep on pounding, knowing the man is down, and so outnumbered by them.  Obviously, I don’t know you. This is the first time I am sharing my thoughts, views on this matter, or any matter online.  To all, friends, relatives of Mr. Mon Tulfo, and the Tulfo brothers:  Let us be thankful that Mr. Mon Tulfo, “kuya” to millions of pinoys in the Philippines and abroad is still OK.  Physically beaten up by several men, and maybe a woman, is still spiritually strong to carry on his GOOD work to fight the fight of the POOR, HELPLESS pinoys.  He is a man so connected to His Creator, that to him  vengeance is not his.  He is leaving it to the court. 

    Let us be calm about this.  This situation is bad enough, let us not make it worst.  This incident put the SPOTLIGHT on the UGLY  side of some of the “rich and famous/infamous” people.  They put the MASK of the nice, sweet, and respectful celebrities when on TV.  However behind the cameras, they are NIGHTMARES to people around them, especially the underlings.  Kuya Mon,  through you, the UGLY behavior of certain people was showcased.  Hopefully, others learn a lesson or two from this.  Rich and poor, we are all equal in the eyes of God. 

    Mr. Mon Tulfo, and the Tulfo family, rest assured that you are in our prayers.  May God keep you safe always.  Keep on the good work!!!


    Onli in the Pilipins that they use their being a columnist to condition the minds of the reader that this writer has the most out pouring support from the readers that’s why he said that foreigners don’t respect us. ” bakit mo sya tinadyakan , E sinuntok ako e” , 38 years in martial arts , underground connections” sabihin mo lang , ako ang bahala, even a kinder pupil can understand what this really means. Onli in da pilipins that’s why poriners dont respect us.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_ANFIUGORRH3AAYDBDU643NW2K4 Jason

    Martin, re-read the article alright? Don’t presume through your own judgement. Just go back and read the article once more.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/NNAJQQUKFAB4DITXYZPSG26FYA Martin

      I read it twice and concluded it’s indeed an indirect threat.

  • taga_labas

    Mon, you are such a crook.  You just incriminated yourself as having knowledge of a retired general who plays in the underworld.  Ganun ha.  Bakit di mo ilantad ang mga nasa kapulisan at militar na naglalaro sa underworld kundi isa ka rin na naglalaro sa playing field ng mga underworld. Whether you are playing on the same side of the law or not remains to be the question in the minds of those who read your coloumn.  Tutuong kulay mo Tulfo ay untiunting lumalantad.  

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/AIW2QLRXL6TL7HQ5ZIIL3KK2VQ Go

    the good thing with tulko is you always know he doesn’t tell the truth …. he pretend he is not vindicative but he writes veiled threats … he claims he sides with the victims but he support the rapist as long as he is rich …. he says he fights against the corrupts but he used to hang with be erap’s and the arroyos…. he fakes he is macho and  discriminates against  gays but he is bakla himself ..

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/NNAJQQUKFAB4DITXYZPSG26FYA Martin

      In fact, his article here which he cannot deny because he wrote it could be used as another basis or added to Santiago’s lawsuit.  It’s clearly an indirect threat even mentioning underworld.  Santiago’s lawyer should take note of this.

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/AIW2QLRXL6TL7HQ5ZIIL3KK2VQ Go

        The lawyer should take note of this … expect  others blunder from tulko as  as he is used to criminal ways and cannot keep his ego down.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_PBOZBBLRVEOTWHXEXOAXJR3Q3Y Dana

    Mon, I just read what you wrote. You should proofread what you wrote first to avoid shooting yourself on the foot again.  It is to my understanding that that retired general has connections with the criminal underworld and in the police and military who are criminal type.     RIGHT?  THIS IS NOT a good way of describing our police and military. These men are professionals, Mon. Just with the exeption of a few criminal type.
        Think before you write. This could be used against you in the court of law.  Specially now that there’s an ongoing lawsuit on both sides.

    Do not use your column to gain sympathy Tulfo. What you are reporting here are indirect threats and you know that. Refrain using your column concerning your case which is now in court. In other words, STFU!

  • randyaltarejos

    I’m not saying I’m perfect. But the way I read some of the comments, it seems some of the readers have low reading comprehension. Mr. Tulfo has promised not to get back at the ones who inflicted him harm. Mon was just sharing to us the messages he got from people who believed in him. If he is really that vindictive, he wouldn’t share those threatening messages anymore. Whatever sinister plans his friends had, Tulfo would just leave them up to them to execute the said plans. As what he said, he prevailed over them not to do those dark plans.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/NNAJQQUKFAB4DITXYZPSG26FYA Martin

      But why write it here and tell it to us?  The message was not for us but for his enemies Santiagos. 

      • randyaltarejos

        Mr. Martin, we should be glad that we are in a free country. The Philippines is a democratic country where every citizen, including you, has the right to free expression. Let’s respect that.

      • randyaltarejos

         Privilege or right, or whatever else, it still is a part of free expression. Like what we are doing in writing these comments, we can only do this in a democratic country such as the Philippines and other western countries. Go to North Korea and do this and let’s see what will happen.

    • pangurita

      “some readers have low reading comprehension”…. sorry to disagree with you my good man but these readers are the kind who are analytical readers and thinkers. they know how to read between the lines not like some people na  basta na lang maniwala sa binabasa nila dahil si mon tulfo ang nagsulat. akalain mo yung general hindi pa alam hanggang ngayon kung sinong gumawang blackeyed peas itong si mon. baka ulyanin na si lolo general.

  • randyaltarejos

    As to the case of Roque Estacio, I share his joy for winning his case against his employer. But mind you, there’s still a lot of pending cases that have not been acted upon by the National Labor Relations Commission (NLRC). However, I still believe in the mission of the NLRC that it uses its fair and reasonable judgment when deciding on labor cases. What keeps bothering me is the way labor cases are dispensed with. If the NLRC accummulates more and more cases on a daily basis but very slow on turnouts, it is likely that those who filed the labor complaints are already starving to death before they could ever realize what are due to them.

  • jeproks2002

    i do not get it.  i still can’t understand why mr. tulfo keeps condemning why he was still attacked when he was down.  did he not rain blows on the guy in pink whom he knocked down? it’s bad for him to be beaten while down on the floor but ok when he punched the guy down and kept punching?
    this retired general must be really tired. the names are all over the place. read the papers and you don’t need to be texted if you really mean what you say.  it is sad when a general wants to fight “abuses of the rich and powerful” but would readily commit the same abuse at a text’s notice.
    i don’t get it.
    yes mr. tulfo won’t exact revenge. but he has written about these supposed threatening messages from his ‘underworld’ contacts.  yes i think the santiago’s, barreto’s and atilano’s get it.

    Mr. Tulfo has decided not to take revenge.  That statement presupposes that revenge was initially on the table.  I have always thought that for honorable men, revenge is never an option to begin with. A peek at Mr. Tulfo’s true colors perhaps?

    Mr. Tulfo, admire po ako sainyo, walang revenge na pumasok sa isip ninyo, considering binugbug kayo ng grupo ni raymart kasama na si claudine. Si Claudine at Raymart ang dapat kasuhan ng child abuse dahil pinakikita nila sa mga anak nila na okay pala ang mambugbug ng isang senior citizen. Ang reason nila, sinipa mo ra si Claudine,   Kung sinipa ninyo yaan, in the first place, wala siya doon sa mga nananakit saiyo. Malakas siya na hinihila ka pa. Aba all of the sudden sa court, pilay siya at may saklay hahaha funny and who are you fooling claudine, yourself??
    Sa palagay ko walang part 1 dahil kung mayroon, lumabas na sana. , gaya ng sinabi ninyo na kinunan mo si claudine at 2 ground stewardess ng cell camera at  pilit na kinukuha ang cellphone mo na tinulak mo siya yaan ang Part 1. 
    Marami po ang nagsasabi na mga sinungaling ang mag-asawa. Hindi kami tanga na maniniwala sa kasinungalin nila claudine at raymart !!

  • onin3

    Mon, If my counting is accurate, this is the fifth time you wrote about that fracas at NAIA, in defense of yourself. I admired you when, I guess on your second column, you wrote to apologize and admitted to your indiscretion. To my mind, it was an act of commendable humility, which I did not expect from you, you being a tough guy who considers his manhood his pride.

    Sadly, I find this fifth column of yours, too much, if not totally unethical of you as a journalist. I don’t wish to take the cudgels for the Santiagos, for they too must be accountable for that brawl at NAIA–Claudine for one has figured in many distasteful public rifts in the past. Why unethical? You should know better, you are a journalist. Delicadeza, or basic sense of propriety would have cautioned you against writing extensively about that incident where you portray yourself as the underdog, and the Santiagos the aggressors. At the very least, your access to a public space in the Inquirer is already your undue advantage over the Santiagos, who do not enjoy the same leverage as you do. Realizing this, you could have already stopped writing in a manner that serves only your own interest but unduly disparages your enemies. Or, if you could not help your emotions and you feel tempted to write in defense of yourself, prudence dictates that you take a leave of absence from the Inquirer so that you will avoid using your column to defend yourself.

    Besides, again, you already issued an apology. Shouldn’t it be enough for you, as a man with intelligent and fair disposition? Now this more painful point. You lied, and you lied all too brazenly when, in your previous column you declared categorically that you did not kick Ms. Barreto. A footage of your interview over GMA 7, which was aired prior to, or minutes before your live interview with Mike Enriquez and Mel Tiancgo on 24 Oras, showed very clearly: You admitted to have kicked Claudine! Anybody could ask GMA 7 to retrieve that footage for the world to see again your own confession. Yet, you shocked your own readers when you wrote and said otherwise, that you never kicked Ms. Barreto. Mon, that makes you a blatant liar! And you care too much about your credibility? I’m sorry Mon, but you are damaging your own self.

    Moreover, what your narration about the purported support that you get from the people in the underworld for? You are now showing your readers how well connected you are in the underworld? With generals, with the military, with the police and with people of shadowy characters who are capable, with ammunitions and networks, to send anyone to death? You are either showing the height of braggadocio, or you are sending the Santiagos and anyone else who will dare cross your path a message on how deeply connected you are with the powers that be, and how influential you are you actually have the power to harm your enemy. What is this Mon? You are confirming what some people all along thought about you and your brothers, that you are thugs masquerading as journalists?

    Do you realize what you are writing Mon? Again, if you cannot help it, file your leave of absence with the Inquirer, pronto!

Wala naman nanalo sa gulo..kasi meron kayo mga nasasaktan at nasaktan sa mga nangyari. Move on na Mon…magfocus ka na sa trabaho mo. Humiliation ay di kahinaan..Enough is Enough.

    Mr. Tulfo, the space of your column in PDI is limited. You will be wasting the noble purpose of your column if you keep on focusing on that NAIA incident. (You’ve just wasted precious space telling everybody that you are well-connected with Mr. so-and-so.) Let the court handle it. C’mon, man, get back on the track and start doing what you do best–hitting the society’s bigger wrongdoers. Remember the copperhead snake, Mr. Tulfo? When angry, it frequently bites itself. And this is exactly what you are doing right now–biting yourself.

      True. Bu public support goes out for him from what I’ve observed, and although I don’t necessarily side with anyone involved in that incident, his continued use of his column as a propaganda for himself is improper.. Peace..


    what Tulfo is saying here  (and what his brothers have said before) is more worst than what that lady Baretto have uttered to the poor lady employee. wala bang nagmamatigasan dyan na taga media na aawat din kay Tulfo na tutulad din kay Tulfo na gustong umawat kay baretto.

    Too late for revenge, Mon after you and your brothers announced it all over the news for all to hear. Anything that happens to the Santiagos’ will point back to you. You better hope no one stupid goes out and harm the couple, because the public’s perception will blame you and your brothers.

    I agree, your article should be a call for your “trigger happy” supporters to standdown, because although you may have suffered some injustice, I’m sure you’d hope to have handled the situation more professionally.

    “Kuya, andito lang po ako. sabihin n’yo lang at ako na ang bahala (I am here. Just tell me and I’ll take care of everything),” said a message from a person I helped through my radio program, “Isumbong Mo kay Tulfo,” many years ago.
    Kung sa ibang bansa iyan, baka itanong sa iyo ng authorities kung sino iyon.

  • ekalaM_ngek0P

    Looks like you are still raw and bitter. Instead of moving on you still kept writing about the incident in which by the way is a subtle form of making threats by indirectly telling the Santiagos, via this column, you have the means and opportunity to hurt them. Just let go, move on and wait for the court to decide. 
    By the way, there is also an overwhelming public disgust and abhorrence towards you and your brothers. Read the blogs and you will find out.

    Hi Mon,you didn’t introduce yourself and you claimed you don’t know the people involved at the time of the incident.Simply taking pix or videos on anyone at that heated discussion may get the ire of the other party.It’s like this kuya,try to take a video or pix sa nagwawalang bata sa family mo or anyone beside the street and you’ll imagine what may happen to you.
    Owning a gun,having friends in the military,having burly body guards,rabid fans is not an issue here.Don’t insinuate those matters because people might percieve that as a coercion.Learn from experience kuya.

  • gyvv

    Coming from a family officers, what people dont know most, is that at one point in time, a policeman in service or a good samaritan,  did actually help a certain family who may or not be grateful. But indeed, the grateful ones, being a friend or being appreciative, would gladly in any form or manner, return a favor. Be careful who one crosses. The article is right and concise. Not all people are willing to help other people but those who do, can easily ask for favors, and if wronged blatantly, revenge. The basics are simple: do not do unto others … and always respect elders. ’nuff said.

Baka naman nananaginip ka pa na lumalaban ka sa MMA cagefight dahil, according to you, martial arts expert ka? Yan ang hirap sa mga taga-Bakbakan martial arts group–nandaya sa eleksyon si Migz Zubiri at si Mon Tulfo naman ay nabugbog at na-“ground & pound” ni Claudine. Dapat magretiro ka na or sibakin ka sa Inquirer. Susunod nyan, ulyanin ka na. Learn to call it quits. Liability ka sa dyaryo. BTW, yang yumaong leader ninyo sa Bakbakan-Kali Ilustrisimo na si Topher Ricketts (utol ni Ronnie) ay basagulero rin at bastos sa mga babae. Nireklamo mo man lamang ba sa column mo ang ginawa ni Topher sa pagpasok sa isang dressing room ng mga babae para manilip at mambastos sa dating gym ng Bakbakan sa Virra Mall? At sinulat mo man lamang ba sa column mo kung paano tinaas ni Topher yung palda ng babae sa isang bus stop at pinakitaan ng front kick yung boyfriend? Alam lahat ito ni Alexander Co, instructor ng Ngo Cho Kune Kung Fu group at miyembro rin ng Bakbakan. What about Migz Zubiri? Binatikos mo ba si Migz nung nanghambalos ng arnis sa Alabang Sports Club when he was still very young and then na-ban for a certain period pagkatapos? You SOBs are a total disgrace to Grandmaster “Tatang” Ilustrisimo and to the tradition of Kali Ilustrisimo! Sabihin mo rin sa mga utol (Erwin, Ben and Raffy) mong bakla na hindi na sila tatagal ng isang minuto sa upakan dahil matatanda na rin sila! If I am not mistaken, and according to our media colleagues, two of them are also wife-beaters, right? Ano yung pangalan na binugbog ni Erwin, na ka-live-in niyang AVP sa Landbank?

Kung matapang ka talaga, sa munisipyo ng San Juan, Batangas natin gawin ang juego todo. Alam mo naman siguro kung ano ito? O gusto mo sa NBI Manila natin gawin ang patayan. Pwede ko ireserba ang gym doon sa tulong ni NBI Academy Martial Arts Chief Instructor Mandy Amisola. Papipirmahin ka namin ng waiver.

    1. The Allegation that a GMA general a Philippine Navy- Marine  General Juancho Sabban already owned a mini-mansion in Australia with a female politician from Mindanao not his wife.
    2. The Philippine politicians who are now busy strengthening their political powerbases instead of figuring out  on what to do to upgrade the nations armed forces.  China is serious on the Spratlys and the Bajo de Masinloc on their energy needs and their future survival.  I need  you to challenge their PATRIOTISM.  They have a very big export to the Philippines but we have a very small export to China.
    3. The overpopulation situation in Manila where people are already having  shanties hanging under the briges.  Its not there before! It is scaring the tourists away!!  They don’t have the stomach for the smell of garbage and the stench of human waste by the squatters. I have a conversation with some of them.  I want you to challenge to mayor of Manila.

    • $14141131

      Are you really serious on what you are saying?

  • $14141131

    Let’s put it this way. True, Tulfo should write other topic than what he writes now. While Tulfo takes advantage of his column to scribe threat through his magnanimous cover, adverse comments albeit slanderous flood this column. Of course that is usual in the Philippine scene where the grapevine rules where Boy Abunda’s appeal awes anti-Tulfo column posters.

    Tulfo has shortcomings but in educated and civilized world, what the termagant Claudine Burritto and henpecked Raymart Santiago did was totally wrong and barbaric. How would you like your sister, mother or cousin to be at the receiving end of the dressing down? You’d curse yourself if you can’t lay your hand on the matron’s face. Or if you are in the shoes of Tulfo, maybe you just can’t wait to have Raymart and Claudine belong to the mortality statistical data.

    But comments we are reading now against Tulfo are in pursuit of their usual trip and incensed grudge or envy or what-not. Almost eight out of ten Pilipinos in foreign countries where education and discipline abound denounce Raymart and Claudine. My survey? Facebook, the prime Pilipino past time.

    At heto ang tunay na katawa-tawa:  Yong heneral na tinutukoy nya na nagsabi na nakita nya ang video clip ng insidente ay nagsabing: “…….Show no mercy Mon and let them pay for their arrogant abuse of power. Txt me their names and our friends will make them regret they
    ever lived.”  ANP, BAKIT kailangan pang i-text ang NAMES, e, kahit na saang media, e, naka-balandra ang lahat ng pangalan at litrato ng mga pumegol sa kanya?  Meron bang matinong heneral ang magsasabi ng ganyan?  At ang bigat ng huling pangungusap na binitiwan (kuno) ng heneral…” our friends will make them regret they ever lived.” 
    Sa mga tumira kay RTulfo, mapapanatag ang kalooban ninyo ngayon dahil kapag may nangyari sa inyo, heto na ang isang ebidensya na magagamit ninyo.
