Dear Joseph, I am forwarding to you via e-mail a photograph that appeared in today's REDEYE, in which a demonstrator protesting against the President's State of the Nation address appears sitting on the pavement, covering his head with his arms, surrounded by MNL Pulis in riot gear about to pounce on him -one of them about to smash him with his baton raised over his head for a full-force swing. The demonstrator, as can be seen, is in a position of submission and fear from the impending attack. Unless this demonstrator had just committed an intolerable offensive act like having thrown something at the President -if he was there in person- or somebody else, it is hard for me to believe what my eyes see on this photograph of what appears to be a truly savage attack -something that I never expected to see in the Philippines as opposed to a certain less civilized country. If you would be so kind, perhaps you could look into the specifics with the help of your vast investigative means, and shed some light on this event for the sake of my sanity. Maraming salamat!
