UST alumnus striking message to Filipinos: 'The entire nation is guilty of murder'

Mark Lopez , a vocal netizen, through his Facebook page said that he was being brutally honest by saying that the death of a 17 year old under the hands of policemen did not create "an overwhelming empathy" for him, as for him, the nation has long been silent on the killings of innocent people.

Lopez said that such tragedies are "a daily dose" and are upon the people day in and out.



He said such killings are evident everyday in the television and in the news.

Lopez said that in the Philippines, the ordinary citizen is constantly subjected to abuse, and exposed to constant fear for his life, or that of his loved one. Life is but a commodity, especially for heartless, scheming and greedy politicians who never hesitate to devalue lives in order to enhance their own worth and esteem.

"You decry the loss of humanity? You weep for the loss of life? Seriously So did you cry when innocent lives are lost? When a cement truck plowed into traffic, flattening a car where a complete family was inside, pinning to death the patriarch, did you cry "murder?!!!" Did you raise hell that there is too much negligence that we allow unsafe but humungous vehicles to take the road?" he said, not naming the ones he directed the message to.

Lopez also mentioned the silence during the killing of Kidapawan farmers, the cardiac arrest of a senior citizen because of 'tanim bala", the murder of an 18 year old whose bag was being stolen, among others.

"When children drowned because the river they were crossing to go to school suddenly went berserk with wicked current, and because the bridge that was supposed to be built were actually diverted to buy your wife's Hermeś latest bag, did you ask your monsignor to light up the candle and bless those angels?"

One can imply that Lopez was giving this message to the Liberal Party, who has been the subject of his previous posts.



The post also read:

"When children drowned because the river they were crossing to go to school suddenly went berserk with wicked current, and because the bridge that was supposed to be built were actually diverted to buy your wife's Hermeś latest bag, did you ask your monsignor to light up the candle and bless those angels?
When you transformed our finest policemen to become rogue and mercenaries for your evil schemes, eventually robbing banks, resorting to kidnapping and extortion, and committing murder by eliminating your rivals or those who refuse to kowtow to your power, is it an extension of your most benevolent public service?
When you pushed our laborers and skilled workers away from their loved ones and into foreign soil, where some of them met their tragic end because they were deceived and abandoned, did you really think of yourself as heroic for crafting laws that strengthen the diaspora and brain drain of our country?"

Lopez said that he could go on and on about the murders in the country, but nothing would change.

"So here we are trying to feign righteous indignation and rage over the death of a teenager, and conveniently using his mortality to raise our so-called humanity," he said.

"And then you all go about waving your intellectual or emotional superiority, declaring that blood is also in the hands of those who have put in place and continue to support this presidency. Seriously? You believe that you don't have any part in the pulling the trigger that killed Kian?We all killed him. Yes, you, me and the entire nation engulfed in greed, apathy and corruption of all forms.We are all guilty of murder.That is the sad, tragic truth." he added.
