OF ARRESTS AND APOLOGIES

6 07 2014

SENATOR JUAN Ponce Enrile was arrested last Friday, July 4. The 90-year-old lawmaker underwent booking procedures at Camp Crame. His mugshots were taken and he was fingerprinted. However, booking photos were not released to the media. Instead, these were sealed in a box labeled ‘artifacts.’

Remember Enrile’s campaign slogan? He said, ‘Gusto ko happy ka!’ We all are now. Thanks!

Even before Senator Enrile left his Dasmariñas Village mansion, hordes of reporters were already waiting for him in Camp Crame. When he arrived, there was an ambush interview. Nope, it wasn’t fake or staged.

Like Bong Revilla and Jinggoy Estrada, the former senate president was examined by doctors in Camp Crame. The results: Blood Pressure 200 over 90; Pulse, 84, and Heart, It’s Complicated.

Enrile’s former chief of staff and rumored girlfriend Gigi Reyes was also arrested last Friday. Or as Cristina Enrile calls it, ‘the best day of my life.’

Gigi Reyes is temporarily detained at the Sandiganbayan building. The powerful and influential “24th senator” reportedly broke down when she learned that the anti-graft court ordered that she be committed to a regular jail. What the hell did she expect: a love nest?

2detImelda and Ateneans
Photos of Ateneo students with former First Lady Imelda Marcos have gone viral. Imelda was the ‘guest of honor’ at a social event organized by the Ateneo Scholarship Foundation or ASF. The amused Ateneans even flashed the V-sign – a known Marcos hand gesture. Netizens could only cringe. Apparently, ASF scholars do not have units in Philippine history.

Amid mounting criticisms, the president of Ateneo De Manila University issued an apology. Fr. Jett Villarin also explained that young Ateneans were taught “not to forget the Martial Law years of oppression and injustice.” Based on that photo, yeah, those Ateneans did not forget. They did not know.

Hazing
The family of a hazing victim from UP will file charges against the involved fraternity – the prestigious Upsilon Sigma Phi. The victim who’s a minor is still confined at the St. Luke’s Medical Center. Upsilon has yet to issue an official denial, excuse me, official statement.

Remorseful
A Japanese politician accused of pocketing government funds became an Internet sensation when a video of him crying hysterically became viral. The politician decided to speak on national TV to deny the allegations – in a dramatic fashion. He was later identified as Ryutaro Revilla Jr.

Arrested
Former French President Nicholas Sarkozy was recently arrested and questioned over corruption allegations. Sarkozy surrendered quietly, saying he’s not after publicity; he’s not seeking public sympathy, and he’s not a Filipino politician.

Bike Thief
A 19-year-old resident of Makati City was arrested for his involvement in the alleged spate of motorcycle thefts in Barangay Rizal. The suspect identified as Erol Legazpi Bautista seeks public understanding saying he did it in ‘good faith.’

2detAttraction
Manila Crocodile Park’s newest attraction is a huge croc named Longlong – a robotic replica of Lolong, once the world’s largest crocodile in captivity. Made of fiber glass and steel, Longlong can crawl, open its mouth, move its head, and deliver privilege speeches.

“The guiding spirit of frats in our culture is “walang iwanan,” not in the sense that Gawad Kalinga uses it, which is not to leave behind the biblical “least of our brethren,” but in the sense of not abandoning a ritual brother right or wrong, guilty or innocent, malevolent or decent.”

Have a safe week!
