This is the picture of Datu Unsay Mayor Andal Ampatuan Jr., the principal suspect of the hideously gruesome massacre in Maguindanao Province where fifty seven (57) people, including thirty six (36) journalists, the wife and pregnant daughter, relatives, and supporters of Ismael "Toto" Mangudadatu, a governatorial candidate in Maguindanao, were unconscionably and mercilessly riddled with automatic assault rifles by this man and his more than one hundred (100) thralldoms.

The Ampatuan family are the political warlords and considered as the gods and the law in Maguindanao Province because they are umbilically or literally very close to the Philippine President. The principal suspect is the incumbent Mayor of the Municipality of Datu Unsay; his brother Andal “Zaldy” Ampatuan, is the incumbent Governor of the Autonomous Region for Muslim Mindanao (ARMM); and their father Andal Ampatuan, Sr., is the incumbent Governor of Maguindanao Province. These people always delivered a landslide votes in favor of President Arroyo and her party every election in the Philippines, the reason she owes them immeasurable debt of gratitude then and now.

Proof to that, even the Ampatuan family had been cursedly denounced by the whole world on account of the massacre, the Philippine President through her spokesperson refused to distant herself but even shamelessly came out in radio and television that no matter how they are presently looked upon by the people in the world, they and the President of the Philippines remain as close friends and allies as ever. No wonder that the Ampatuans have been getting a kid glove treatment.

Here’s the kid glove treatment: The prime suspect was treated as VIP in the sense that the government spent millions of pesos just to show his kind of stature. Trucks and luxury cars loaded with high ranking government officials and soldiers came to the house of the Ampatuans to fetch the suspect. But he chose no other but a helicopter to ride, so, he was fetched by a helicopter yesterday, November 26, 2009 at 11:00 o’clock in the morning. He was not handcuffed, as what other suspects even in petty crimes are seen when apprehended.

Also, the weapons of the Amputuans military forces comprising eight hundred (800) were allegedly confiscated but the guns and rifles that were surrendered were old/antique weapons (Garand rifles used in WWII), rusty and dilapidated. Witnesses say they were not the kind of weapons used by the killers. Please see the photo. Photo from

The suspect’s brother Andal “Zaldy” Ampatuan, the incumbent Governor of the Autonomous Region for Muslim Mindanao (ARMM); and their father Andal Ampatuan, Sr., the incumbent Governor of Maguindanao Province, were not apprehended, or at least, just invited for questioning as they are also allegedly in conspiracy, directly or indirectly, to the suspect. Remember, it was incumbent Governor Andal Ampatuan, Sr. who threatened Ismael "Toto" Mangudadatu not to file his candidacy for governor; and that the backhoe excavator used to dig and cover the cadavers of the victims and their vehicles was owned by the Maguindanao Province with the name of Governor Andal Ampatuan, Sr. scribbled in it. Likewise, the two high ranking Police Officials who were allegedly present at the scene of the crime and the militia forces who fired at the victims were under Andal “Zaldy” Ampatuan, the incumbent Governor of the Autonomous Region for Muslim Mindanao (ARMM).

So, what is happening here, are we that fool enough to believe what the government is doing? The government’s handling of the Ampatuan case is too appalling that to take it sitting down will be perceived by the whole world how the Filipinos are so stupid and twat that we are. In that case, we deserve the kind of government we have, in that, our President is only such for those people whom she has mutual political interest. In fact, she has cultivated a culture of impunity among them.

The government official speaking in behalf of the President, when asked a question whether the Ampatuans are untouchable, said: “No, they are not, nobody is untouchable, and I mean nobody. With the highest heinous crime they have committed, I don’t see why there are people who could still say that they are untouchable.” Do you not jeer with such an answer?
