How was the Weekend?


There were two police reports which were recorded during the weekend, to wit—a Marines regular, who is presently assigned in the South, shot a neighbor in Cabatangan; luckily the bullet did just hit the victim on one of his foot, and he is free now. The second was a cadaver of a woman, found in an abandoned lot somewhere in Lantawan, Pasonanca. The said corpse was already in an advanced state of decomposition.

Both police stories are under the jurisdiction Sta. Maria Police Station. With regards to the shooting story, the Marines reasoned that he shot the victim as only a way of a personal self-defense, because according to his version, the latter pulled something also from his waist, which looked like a gun. Thus, in his allegation he shot the victim then first, than he could be the slain person.

Based onto the initial investigation of the Sta. Maria Police, the victim had an earlier rift with the brother of the soldier. It could be that such planted an aggravation to the Marines’ emotion against the victim, though said misunderstanding did happen in less than two months. Understandably, anger doesn’t have prescription, so that when any opportune time may come, it can easily breed some crimes along. In this wise, the authorities theorized their angles of the motive of the shooting.

More of all, some folks around, in the place, shared that the victim is also involved to illegal drugs. |Now, with such allegation, the soldier might have thought that the police would side him, and never the victim. But the law is the law! When the Sta. Police arrived to the scene of the crime, the soldier was voluntarily surrendered then. Thus, he can’t report to duty at this time, well unless if he can file a bail for his temporary liberty.

The morals in the story: the value of patience, and for any regular soldier around, never deem your ordinary surrounding as like to any battlefield, where one may just shoot anytime he wants. And much when the actual opponent is a total helpless civilian. Anyways, the victim did only sustain something ordinary wound and nothing serious or fatal did happen along.

How about that female cadaver? Obviously, the same person died for some time already. Her state, in advance decomposition, can definitely attest that she had been in the ground long then. The foul smell of the dead body was really awful. But a controversy continues to prevail up to now, because the body was discovered completely naked?

One of the questions of the ordinary people is: was rape probably part of the reasons of the death of such poor victim? At the moment, nobody can confirm the same, although the Sta. Maria Police are now in their extensive investigation, as to the motive of the woman’s death, or even her very identity.

Poor victim! That even her name remains to be an enigma to the authorities, beginning when her corpse was discovered. Thus, part of the deep investigation of the police now is the identity then of the victim. After all, the scarce information of the Sta. police is now posted in all of the 11 police stations of the City, so that any missing victim can be compared then. Who knows, such can help crack the case.

Today is the second day of the Holy Week, being the Holy Monday, but apparently criminalities have not stopped or rested. Evil elements do not know to rest or they do not choose what day to perpetrate their overt acts. Nonetheless, the police explains that such two incidents are only remote ones, so that the entire Zamboanga City may remain to be in total peace for the entire Lent.

“For behold, they lie in wait for my life; fierce men stir up strife against me. For no transgression or sin of mine, O LORD, for no fault of mine, they run and make ready. Awake, come to meet me, and see! You, LORD God of hosts, are God of Israel. Rouse yourself to punish all the nations; spare none of those who treacherously plot evil. (Selah) Each evening they come back, howling like dogs and prowling about the city.” (Ps. 59:3-6, ESV)
