Hurray For The Thugs

Media has a right to its advocacy, and in fact should advocate, but to strap on a gun and say, ‘try me,’ is not being a journalist. It means being a thug.

The Tulfo brothers say they are capable of violence, but that they are “hard men with soft hearts” who stand for the underdog.

The reason the public runs to the media and not to government is because institutions have failed to serve. That the Tulfos exist and are called heroes for their vigilantism demonstrates the extent of that institutional failure.

About Ross Del Rosario

I specialized in the field of Information and Communications Technology (ICT). I'm also a public servant, a social media evangelist, and an entrepreneur. My personality is a mix of all genres, with a penchant for the absurd and graphically pleasing. I'm the IT professional who’s more into substance and creativity rather than structure and complexity, the gamer who takes a long time to finish a game because I often lose track of time admiring the eye-candy, and the sci-fi fanatic who who often ponders on the opportunity to experiment on people like lab animals minus the gross stuff like dissecting frogs (this last one is a joke).
