A young lass was discovered and rescued by barangay tanods, not a piece of clothing on, wandering in a deserted road, and seemed to have lost her mind.
She was raped by demons from hell, the news told. I hated them very much from the time the news was on tv. If someone will tell me that these demons must have been drug addicts, I will retort telling that no drug detox center program could change the monster in these hateful men. They surely must have been one of those fallen angels that we call demons.
The story went that the girl EBed (eyeballed) with someone from Facebook. She could not be stopped, the sister said. What a stubborn lass!
This had me thinking again. The world is not a place to live in anymore. AND I have to purge my FB list.
When I reached home today, Papsie asked me if I know Edwin Valero. I have no idea I told him. Then briefly, he told me that he was the boxer that was supposed to be matched with Manny Pacquiao in the boxing arena in the future. I was told that he committed suicide inside his prison cell after killing his wife. That was shocking.
Papsie continued that he learned that Valero is involved in drugs and alcohol abuse. How come he gets to fight if he is, was my question. I mean, he was not simply taking alli diet pills, he was a drug user, if not a drug addict. I wonder if it is a requirement that boxers must be checked if they are drug users or addicts, or there is history of alcohol abuse. Or they will only be obliged when an opponent requested or demanded it?
News from The Washington Post mentioned this line:
Arum said he did not know Valero very well, but despite hearing rumors of drug and alcohol troubles for the Venezuelan had not seen evidence of that himself during several meetings.
Life is indeed ironic. Sometimes it makes me think what people really want in their lives. Valero has money and fame but he chose to kill his wife and end his life as well.
A sad end for a crowd-pleaser.
Stumbled upon an interview with Jinkee Pacquiao by Thea Alberto. In her interview, Jinkee on Krista: Giving Up Because of Her is Not Worth It, Jinkee has this to say (translated in English):
There is just so much intrigue, and there are times where you feel like giving up. But we can’t allow it, and we shouldn’t allow it. Giving up because of women like her is not worth it.
I believe that every wife for that matter would not give up on her husband easily, much more on someone like Manny Pacquiao. Admit or not, the champion is a prized catch. To split up marriage with him, or simply annul it, will cost any wife regret. Admit or not.
In fairness to Manny, he had stood many times for his wife, and was able to show the world that he loves his wife. He might have gone astray for a while, and might have ‘tolerated’ a woman like Krista, or whoever, for reasons only he knows, but still he clung to his wife. He is still with his wife and not with any other woman. No one really knows what is happening between them but the fact that he chose to be with his wife is what matters.
It would be a different story if he flaunts his machismo, or if he physically abuses his wife, or talks openly about his affairs on television or any other media. That would definitely pose another scenario.
I would have other questions in my mind though:
- What if Manny admitted doing it with another woman, or to having a one night stand with another? With a status like Manny’s, I believe that women will gather like bees each with desire to bed him, seriously or not.
- What if Manny confessed that he fell for another, like being still in love until the time he confessed? Which is not impossible, but will still fall under temptation, which could be mistaken as falling in love. There will always be a thin line between love and lust.
- What if Manny has a love child that will suddenly appear and will be proven that the child was truly his? Now, this bit of news had surfaced before and was gone after a few blinks. It just proved it was not true. But who says it is not possible?
There was news on television the past few days about a woman who went to Tondo to attend the fiesta celebration with her boyfriend and friends and ended up in the police station wailing and in shock. She was raped by many and had to jump from the second floor of the house to flee or to escape the transgressors. She was seen without her pants and panty on waving to a barangay service vehicle. She was limping, probably getting a fracture from the jump.
Where was the boyfriend? He was nowhere in that news report. Maybe one of the perpetrators? We really do not know. But it is very sure that she was not taken good care by her supposed to be valiant knight ready to protect her any time.
Should we readily blame the girl because she could have probably showed that she was an easy girl, or maybe she was wearing a mini skirt or a revealing dress? Was that enough reason for someone or for some people to rape her? The girl was wearing only a simple black shirt in that news report, by the way.
If this is what our frame of mind should be, then all those lovely legged models and beauty pageant contestants best viewed in LCD HDTV will be raped one way or the other. And all those young ladies and women who wears clothes that reveal a little or more of the flesh will suffer the same fate.
The trouble with these holier-than-thou, goody-goody types of people is they forget that rape is carried out by mentally deranged individuals who force themselves on others because of that incapacity. How would these self-righteous people explain the rape of a six-month old baby, or that of a septuagenarian? Instead of blaming these mindless perpetrators, the whole accusation is on the victim. Are they really sure that their simple, tightly closed, unappealing apparel will save them from a raging bull that of rapist? God forbid.
Sometimes, being too much engrossed on the notion that one is better than the other because of the precepts they follow in life makes the whole thing more fake.
