The Inquirer editorial for today points to an ongoing debate where the police seem to be taking a more sensible line than the military. Perhaps this explains why Satur Ocampo insists on remaining in police custody. But the editorial itself cautions against making too much about the difference.
My column for today is Radical yet firmly legal. Please see my entry for today’s Inquirer Current for my view that the armed forces is arguing apples while the rest of society is arguing oranges. Among the flawed government assumptions: equating the CPP-NPA-NDF automatically with perfectly legal party lists.
