Last September 13, 2009, authorities raided a small carinderia at Purok 15, Poblacion Don Carlos, Bukidnon. This, because police believed that the establishment was engaged in the illegal numbers game called suwertes.
The raid was conducted by virtue of a search and seizure warrant issued by a Bukidnon judge. The raid, reports say, yielded tally sheets, cash, blank stub, carbon paper, ballpens, tips and blank sheets.
I will no longer name the owner of the carinderia here.
Now my question is — do you think suwertes will ever stop here in the province?
Is suwertes already a “part” of everyday life here in Bukidnon? Also, should people make a big fuss out of the e-Games casino cafe in Valencia City when in fact, according to “gwapa333,” illegal games and other illegal activities such as sabong have already been in existence since time immemorial?
