The parents of Jared Lee Loughner, suspected in the Tucson, Arizona, shootings that left six people dead and U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords critically wounded, said Tuesday they do not know why the incident occurred and that they are "very sorry" for the loss felt by victims' families.
Compared that to the Philippines, high profile parents whose children were involved in felonies; carnage, murder, rape, illegal drugs and illegal drugs, were short of declaring their children saints by denying they're capable of the crime. Iisa-isahin ko pa ba?
I hope you have seen that episode in Law and Order:SVU where the murderer they've been looking for was a nine year old kid. He killed his playmate, the son of a psychiatrist just because, the latter saw him how he tortured and killed a cat.
The young boy even offered to identify who kidnapped and possibly must have murdered the playmate by pointing to a newly-rehabilitated pedophile. In the course of investigations, all evidences led to the boy who was found to be a pathological liar.
To cut the story short, the boy confessed and he skipped prison because of his age. The father of the victim, in his extreme emotional burst, killed him. He was tried in court but was acquitted by the jury for the reason that he snapped and was not thinking right when he grabbed the pistol of a police and shot the boy.
At the end, he intimated to the ADA that he really planned to kill the boy because the kid was a sociopath and may still kill some more in the future.
How many are going to be killed because Filipino parents would do everything to save their spoiled children from prisons. A woman is not necessarily an ideal mother even if she takes million of bullets for her kid for the crimes he committed.
