Politicians, who are supposed to be the public servants, mostly get the royal treatment.
President Noynoy Aquino is against the “three stooges” of dirty politics: the “utak wang-wang”, the “epal” and the “kurap” politicians.
He even had his “Kung walang corrupt, walang mahirap” as his winning campaign slogan.
Even when politicians are subpoenaed or issued warrant of arrests, these personalities end up on bail, under hospital or house arrest, are given police escorts and protection 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, plus a classy entourage to boot each time they’re allowed to visit a dying relative or attend a wake or a funeral.
All paid for by the government from the taxes of the people that they swindled and cheated.
Commoners usually either rot in jail, beaten up bad, or end up dead.
