Veteran journalist on Kian’s death: "Let the investigators do their job"

So much is said and argued over the death of 17-year-old Kian delos Santos, but columnist Rigoberto Tiglao says to let investigators do their job and come up with the real results over the boy’s death.

Tiglao emphasized that in this situation, further verification and investigation is needed to confirm who really is at fault, unlike certain controversies before.

He cited what happened during Mamasapano Massacre where former President Benigno Aquino III was evidently seen near Cotobato City feigning ignorance over the dire situation. There was also the case of Haciend Luisita farmers shot and murdered on the Cojuangco-Aquino lot. And lastly, the concrete passbooks presented by the wife of Commission on Elections (COMELEC) Chief Andres Bautista.

In his full post on Facebook, Tiglao said,

"I'm getting sick and tired about this I-have -always- supported-the-war-on- drugs, I-support- Duterte BUT BUT this Kian "murder" blah, blah blah. Many even get so melodramatic, like "Father of life, take this child into your arms" blah blah. Aargh.

Just let the investigators do their job. And if you find something, I mean really something specific that shows the investigators are lying, that's when you cry to high heavens and tell us what these lies are!

This is so different in cases like the Mamasapano massacre when we knew immediately that Aquino was in a nearby Cotabato City pretending the fighting wasn't going on in which 44 of our our elite troops were killed one by one;, or when more than a dozen peasants were shot obviously by police and military in front of Malacanang during Cory's watch, or when strikers were killed right at the gates of Hacienda Luisita.

Or Tish Bautista presenting us with the actual bank passbooks of his husband the Comelec chief.

In essence these sickening posts (and columns) reflect how much Filipinos love to join mobs.

And BTW, just criticize Duterte if you think he needs to be criticized. You don't have to sheepishly preface your criticism with a you-love-him-but-blah-"
