People’s query: “Why is the fiscal’s killer still alive?”


LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “… 1There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea.  People will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken’…” (Jesus, our God and Savior, in Luke 21:25-26, the Holy Bible).


PEOPLE’S QUERY: “WHY IS THE FISCAL’S KILLER STILL ALIVE?”: This column, Kakampi Mo Ang Batas, wishes to express its truly great appreciation for the immediate and no-nonsense arrest of Angelito Avenido Jr. of General Santos City, the guy who is said to have mercilessly stabbed to death Ombudsman Special Assistant Prosecutor Madonna Joy Ednaco Tayag. Tayag was five months pregnant when she was slaughtered by Avenido ang his gang.

This arrest showed that it has become a lot easier now to hold those who have committed heinous and gruesome crimes liable, preventing them from avoiding liability for the crimes they so stoically carried out. This should deter would-be criminals or other people planning to commit one crime or another, and make them think twice before doing anything, for it is now a certainty that they would be caught soon after the crime.

At present, many Filipinos are telling me they are actually praying for Avenido to fight his arresting officers, or even try to escape from them, to justify immediate retaliatory action by the police against him. It is said that Avenido, and others like him who have no qualms in killing their fellowmen even for no reason at all, have no reason live further.  Many have even expressed wonder why Avenido is still alive up to this time, after his arrest by the authorities.


THE PROSECUTOR WAS KILLED BECAUSE SHE REFUSED TO GIVE UP HER WALLET: The apparent motive behind the merciless murder of the Ombudsman Special Assistant Prosecutor and the five-month old baby in her womb was robbery. According to the bits and pieces of information that are coming the way of Kakampi Mo Ang Batas, Avenido and his group took away the wallet and the other personal valuables of the woman.

But the woman fought back. That prompted Avenido and his gang to repeatedly stab her to death. Unknown to Avenido however, CCTV cameras were filming what they were doing to the hapless lady. Too, there were witnesses who saw the event and who are even now in police custody, giving their statements against Avenido and his cohorts.

But what truly riles here is this: according to the news, Avenido is a fugitive from justice, he having ran away from yet another murder case in General Santos City. The reason why he went to Metro Manila is to let cool things a bit in GenSan. Unfortunately, because he knew no decent work, he resorted to petty crimes like robbery to earn some money. Imagine, a fugitive having no remorse at all being allowed to roam our streets?


THE WICKEDNESS DISPLAYED BY THE FISCAL KILLERS WAS WARNED ABOUT BY THE BIBLE: The Bible warned about this kind of descent into crime and sinfulness of many people. According to Matthew 24:12, as the world nears its end, “wickedness will increase greatly, the love and faith of most will grow cold…”

In Mark 13:13, we read this passage: “Brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child. Children will rebel against their parents and have them put to death.  Everyone will hate you because of me, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved…” Luke 21:16 virtually repeats Mark 13, verbatim.

Faced with this gruesome situation, it would be best for everybody who still believe in God to strive to strengthen their faith in Him, through a diligent reading of, and sincere meditation on, His Word, and through an honest-to-goodness obedience to His commands. This is the only way that believers can triumph over the spread of wickedness and sinfulness in the world.
