    The problem with under developed countries,
    it’s so easy to plant Drugs or Guns for 
    political, business or personal reasons.

    In the Philippines, cheating, lying, stealing and killings are a cultural way of life(JPE),
    Nobody can Trust AFP, PNP, Immigration and Justice, excepted Dynasties, Trapos, High Officials….

      At least half of the Pilipino’s prisoners are innocents and don’t get a fair trial,
      even a tetra-plegic was guilty of rape and jailed for many Years, till Ramon Tulfo advertise the case in his column during more than one years, probably the best and only good thing He ever did….

      Philippines Justice is probably the Worst existing in the World, frightening with death penalty, extra judicial killings are already a shame !
