On my way to a movie today I happened to buy a newspaper and one of the stories I read was about a certain DAR secretary Nasser Pangandaman and his son beating somebody up over a golf issue!? I can’t believe what I was reading but I was near my destination so I decided to look it up later.
After I arrived home I checked the internet and found out that the son was no ordinary son but a “Mayor” no less. The mayor of Masui city.
Let me get this straight a mayor and a DAR secretary was involved in the beating of a golf player and his son?
I asked my buddy Jepoy and he told me more about it. He gave me the link to blogger Bambee Dela Paz who was the daughter of the victim Delfin Dela Paz and sister to his son Bino.
She was able to blog about what happened that faithful day just a few days after Christmas.
So, I just had the worst day of my life.
At around 1:30 PM today (Dec 26), at Valley Golf and Country Club, Antipolo City, Mayor Nasser Pangandaman, Jr., Mayor of Masiu City, Lanao del Sur, his father, Secretary Nasser Pangandaman of the Department of Agrarian Reform, and company, beat my defenseless 56-year-old dad and my 14-year-old brother to a pulp because of some stupid misunderstanding on the golf course.
Someone breaks up the fight. I thought it was all over. The mayor shouts to his caddy: “Hindi nila kami kilala! Sabihin mo nga sa kanila kung sino ako!” And believe me, I had no idea who this person was. But now I know. He’s the person who, with 4 other men, beat up my 56-year-old father and my 14-year-old brother. He’s the person who sacks a pleading 14-year-old kid in the face. He’s a person who, I am sure, is gonna rot in hell.
The world has gone crazy. Two politicians beat up a defenseless 56-year-old father and his 14-year-old son. At a golf course. I swear to God, I thought golfers were decent people. You would think politicians were decent people. I guess not. I guess they gang up on 56-year-old men and beat up pleading 14-year-old kids.
Please pray for my dad, my brother and for my whole family. Please pray that we get JUSTICE. Oh God, please, give these people what they deserve.
What kind of country do we live in?
These people had the tenacity to do such a thing despite numerous witnesses. It was broad daylight ladies and gentlemen and nobody was able to stop them.
These are examples of people who have too much power on their hands.
I can tell you what will happen next. They will the question the integrity of the people involved and buy off the rest.
If somebody close to the president will happen to read this or any of the other links I implore you DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS!
