Pass the death penalty now

Hypocrites such as the opposition and human rights advocates opposing the capital punishment must attend the funeral of Christine Lee Silawan, the 16-year-old high school student raped and slaughtered in Lapu-Lapu City, Cebu. This is so that they would feel the anger of the citizenry.

I would want to see the reaction, particularly the faces of those who profess a “holier than thou” attitude, as they come near the remains of this innocent victim of a most heinous crime.

Anyone, who would shout “human rights, human rights” in defense of the cold-blooded murderers might as well burn in the hottest place in hell.

Christine, a 9th Grader at Maribago National High School, was last seen alive last Sunday at the Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish in Barangay Pajac where she served as one of the tithes collector during the Holy Mass.

She was found dead the following day, March 11th at a vacant lot in Barangay Bankal. Her brutalized body bore at least 30 stab wounds, her face appeared to have been skinned, while her tongue and oesophagus cut and perhaps carted away by the suspects as souvenirs according to police investigators on an interview over at Radyo Pilipinas last Thursday.

Christine's most horrible death cries for justice. Her friends and family are wailing for justice. The whole nation calls for justice.

Police authorities said she might have resisted the rape by one or more attackers, whom she probably knew.

People say and I agree that this gruesome murder could have been committed only by heartless drug addicts. I say this unspeakable crime could only be committed by demons not entitled to any human rights and due process.

They must burn in hell, along with whoever would coddle them here on earth.

These extremely dangerous criminals, who have no respect for the life of the defenseless, innocent youngster must go to hell as soon as they are arrested.

These scums deserve to pay the ultimate price. Unfortunately, Congress is pussy-footing on the reenactment of the capital punishment and our useless laws concocted by hypocritical human rights advocates have produced an entire generations of heinous criminals.

While we await the passage of the death penalty, Christine’s treacherous killers must be accorded with a special one-way trip to hell courtesy of the “nanlaban” or “agaw-armas” method of some police operatives.

These rapists/murderers do not deserve to live a day longer in this world, do they, Mr. President, Sir?
