Marshall Law In Maguindanao - Poem by MELVIN BANGGOLLAY
MARSHALL LAW IN MAGUINDANAO
Melvin D. Banggollay
M-arshall Law was the president's option
to curve lawlessness in Maguindanao region
that put local government units' administration
under military control and general supervision.
An action taken to protect government's sake
against an actual act of controlling the state
by anyone with force and violence to take
control and administer the affairs of the state.
R-ebellion was government charged for the ampatuan's
suspected and perpetuated this henious crime
of murdering 57 helpless journalist and civilians
in their desire for political supremacy at all times.
S-ince the ampatuan's didn't revolt against the state
for what they committed was a multiple murder crime,
there is a fear and strong possibility for acquital to take
from this rebellion filled against them until this time.
H-undred of people were now in the crowded streets
shoutng for justice for all of these pitifull victims
but if their right against double jeopardy will merit
then these helpless victims will lost justice as it seems.
An approach which the administration have taken
to protect their interest and rights of the clan,
In truth, marshall law is the least option to be taken
to protect the victims and journalist of this land.
L-egal parlands of the law vividly and boldly display
no person shall be charged of the kind of crime
as stated from the right against double jeopardy
as embodied in the tenets of our laws at all times.
L-egality of RA 1959 issued by the Pres. Aroyo
is a direct and serious response to maguindanao crisis
but it's a way of protecting the ampatuan's from redo
and from technically acquiting the culprit out of this.
