    To the journalist or PDI management why not finance a research on how and why these criminal elements were heavily armed to the teeth in the first place? Who were behind these supplies and support to these lawless elements ?? Suspect of course is the military but must be done in an scrupulous manner to warrant a congress or senate investigation !!
