Last December 5, 2009, a man and a woman became the recent victims of a crime. Let’s just hide their real names and merely identify the guy as 26 year old Pedro, married, and a resident of Malaybalay City. The woman, on the other hand, is a 21 year old single lady and a resident of Valencia City. Let’s call her Maria. We’re not sure of their real relationship and we also need to protect them (for fear that suspects may strike again) so best if we just hide their identities for now.
What’s important is to know if we can still consider the Capitol Grounds a safe place and what the authorities are doing to ensure the public’s safety while at the area.
Remember, before we know it, it’s the Kaamulan Festival once again. How can we guarantee the safety of our guests here in Bukidnon?
Police reports state that Pedro and Maria were sitting on a concrete bench at the Capitol Grounds when two persons approached them and wielded a .45 caliber pistol. Maria reportedly tried to grab the pistol. The suspects shot her. Pedro was shot next.
Pedro died of gunshot wounds while Maria had to undergo surgery.
So now I can’t help but ask — are we still safe? How are we kept safe?
