So many crimes remain unsolved or perpetrators not prosecuted because they were not caught in the act by concerned citizen taking a video with cell phone and was not in the social media radar. I wonder how the democratizing character of the internet will be affected by the recent Sottomized PNoy Cybercrime Law, will it dampen the enthusiasm of social media netizens to help tilt the balance?
Apathy remains to be one of our biggest stumbling blocks in our trek towards a robust democracy. The timing of the passage of the Sottomized Cybercrime Law as we approach the 2013 national election will definitely contribute to the increase in apathy when people’s rights and freedom of expression are frustrated and repressed by an unjust law where the Philippine version of libel was inserted. Never mind that it was declared by the UNHRC where the Philippines is one of the signatory as a human rights violation, but let us see if this will indeed affect the gun poking incident negatively in favor of the bully.
I am all for anti bullying. But this article repeatedly mentioning that the father might be gay, indicates that the writer is possibly homophobic. How is that detail of any relevance?
Bullying is a problem that has to be dealt with early on while bullies are in their formative years, wait a little longer and you will have raised the likes of Angelino "Boyet" Fajardo or worse a Rolito Go and they became a menace to society which is a sad failure in parenting. Perhaps this will spur you to action, imagine your sweet loving son and daughter because you as a parent and the school fails big time in dealing with his/her bullying problem woke up one day and see in your son or daughter the likes of Boyet Fajardo or Rolito Go. Or worse you become a clone of Jason Ivler's mother, now think about that people.
