  1. well, he gave him a reason to shoot.. in a way, sha dn pla pumatay sa sarili nya.. kwawa nman yung mga anak nya.. wasak dn buhay ng pamilya ni tanto..

    • “well, he gave him a reason to shoot..” eto na yung pinakabobong, walang utak, walang silbing komentong nakita ko sa isyu na ‘to.
      Matanong ko lang, sa’ng banda ba binigyan n’ya si Tanto para bumaril?

      Anyway, CONGRATS sa comment mong to! Sana di na dumami pa ang ‘yong lahi!

    • That is not a reason to shoot him. For all we know, Tanto might have also said offensive words to Garalde prompting the victim to curse him back. But still, that is not a valid reason for Tanto to shoot Garalde. In fact, it was overkill considering he pumped 5 bullets into Garalde instantly killing him and seriously injuring the innocent girl who was just throwing garbage. This only proves the importance of having self control. Otherwise, rage can and always leads to a worse case scenario.

    • Isa na namang walang kwentang tao na kalahi ni tanto. Kapag ganyan ang comment n mababasa mo sa ganitong issue, nakakapangilabot ang kinabukasan ng lahi ng tao.

    • Kamag anak mo ba si PNoy? Anong side of story ni tanto? Pinanood mo ba kung pano niya binaril? Bulagta na tapos pinaputukan pa.

    • I agree, things aren’t always what they seem on some degree the reason to dig in with what is true. Ang pagkakamali lang nya ay ang pagpatay sa biker hindi talaga dapat humantong doon.

    • humahanap kpa ng ibang anggulo.. kahit gaano kabigat ung away nila, simpleng alitan lang yan at di dapat humantong sa patayan..

    • I think pareho silang mali. Mali si tanto kasi namaril sya at mali naman si geralde kasi panalo na sya, nag-angas pa sya. I won fistfights before pero after nun hindi ko nagagawang magyabang, kasi in the first place dapat di nako nakipagaway. It was both their fault, nobody wanted to be the good guy and let go of the situation kaya in the end parehong sira ang buhay nila.

  2. From Cebu:

    Lesson learned. I too has a solution to that.

    Being a member of a shooting team and also a reservist with the rank of captain, before I was thinking always of an imaginary foe so I would always bring my hi-cap .40 cal. pistol lock and load and at any moments reach.

    I once had an altercation with a reckless motorist and I was about to reach for my gun but immediately the picture of my family came into view. So I desisted.

    Guys think of your family if you are in a life and death situation. Use “KARATE” with an “L” or KARATEL. Desist and go away. Its the happy remedy.

  3. ayan kasi panay pagbaril ang pinag aaralan…natalo lang sa suntukan namaril na agad…tsk tsk tsk…dapat yan bitay.. binaril niya ng harap harapan at sinundan pa ng ilang putok para masigurado na patay…kahit ano man ang rason niya di pa rin yun dahilan para patayin niya yung naka bike.

  4. hirap kasi sa ibang tao hindi marunong magpakumbaba, ang pagtanggap ng pagkatalo ay hindi kabawasan sa pagkalalaki, masyado kasi mainit. ang masasabi ko lng, yang rappler, at topgear na yan, mga suhol yan, mga kantsaw,parang abs bias cbn. mga walang katotohanang media,bago maniwala sa kanila mag suri muna mabuti.
