I wonder what's happening to our normal sense of extending human consideration to a distraught father, Bong Revilla, whose son, Jolo, is confined in a hospital for a gunshot wound to the chest. I agree to the Sandiganbayan's decision to give-in to Bong's urgent appeal. And that's a very valid ground because the fact his son was put under the knife for 2 1/2 hours is really justified for a concerned father to be allowed to see his son. What is "3 hours" after all but only a short pass to show compassion for a very justified reason.
Footnote: This comment came out in connection with a news item in PDI, entitled, "Sandiganbayan allows Bong Revilla to visit son Jolo." It came out on March 2, 2015. Jolo is the Vice Governor of Cavite and he is in the hospital for what the family lawyer says as "accidental firing" of a gun while Jolo was cleaning it. But other comments from skeptical bloggers argue that when you hit your chest with a gun, it is hard to reconcile because you've got to point the barrel to yourself to do it. In other words, some skeptics would like to advance the possibility that the son did it with intent to hurt himself as he was already depressed to what happened to his father as Bong is imprisoned for his involvement in the P10B PDAF scam.
