The Death Penalty

Okay, here we go again. Another sensitive topic. Capital Punishment here in the Philippines. I’m writing this because of the recent issue of 3 people arrested in China for drug possession. Hate me for sharing my opinion, I don’t really care. So here we go.

First off, again, I Google‘d most of my research so don’t judge my work. Google is the most comprehensive search engine EVER. And no, Google doesn’t pay me to plug their name in my blog.

So. For a brief history of the Capital Punishment here in the Philippines, I found this very reliable article in Wikipedia. See the trend?

Now here’s the Republic Act No. 9165 for Illegal drugs. I’m pretty sure that death penalty is out of the equation since it was abolished back in 2006.

IMO, those 3 who were caught in China for being drug mules (now executed) should have seen this coming. I’m not sure if it’s right to talk shit about them now that they’re executed, but seriously, if you’re planning on doing something illegal, make sure you’re ready for the consequences. We can’t blame the Chinese government for implementing their laws. Blame those fuckin’ drug lords who just can’t stop trafficking illegal shit.

Who are we to decide who to execute? If you’re proven guilty of an unforgivable crime, then maybe, you should pay for your life. Not be given a second chance of living in prison for a lifetime. You don’t get to have the benefit of having free food in a government facility. But that’s just me.

I feel bad for this guy. He’s the only dude in my 19 years of living here who received the death penalty. Or at least, to be fair, he’s the only guy I remember of having to die by lethal injection. But seriously, he raped his own daughter. So I guess he had it coming, so to speak.

So let’s think about it. How about we bring back the death penalty? Not only we would prevent vigilante justice, we’ll make an example out of those people who just can’t seem to do any right in this world. Religion aside, we all know that those people who committed unforgivable crimes should cease to exist in this world. Take for example, Andal Ampatuan Jr. That douchebag killed a lot of people. And yet he lives. Those 3 who were recently executed in China, pushed drugs. Can you not see the difference?

What the FUCK is wrong with our system?

You figure it out.

Ask yourself. You'll figure it out.

DONE.
