How greedy those politicians are?
Politics is a dirty business mostly here in the Philippines. It has been normal in every elections having a news about political killings.
As I remember the 2009 Maguindanao Massacre, it was one of the most heartfelt happenings in Political killings. As I refer to Wikipedia.
The Maguindanao massacre, also known as the Ampatuan massacre after the town where the mass graves were found, occurred on the morning of November 23, 2009, in the town of Ampatuan in Maguindanao province, on the island of Mindanao in the Philippines. While the 58 victims were on their way to file a certificate of candidacy for Esmael Mangudadatu, vice mayor of Buluan town, they were kidnapped and killed. Mangudadatu was challenging Datu Unsay mayor Andal Ampatuan, Jr., son of the incumbent Maguindanao governor Andal Ampatuan, Sr. and member of one of Mindanao’s leading Muslim political clans, in the forthcoming Maguindanao gubernatorial election, part of the national elections in 2010. The people killed included Mangudadatu’s wife, his two sisters, journalists, lawyers, aides, and motorists who were witnesses or were mistakenly identified as part of the convoy.
The Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) has called the Maguindanao massacre the single deadliest event for journalists in history. At least 34 journalists are known to have died in the massacre. Even before the Maguindanao massacre, the CPJ had labeled the Philippines the second most dangerous country for journalists, second only to Iraq.

This political issue represent as the dirtiness and uses as a business. Politicians commit killings just to have what they want. They become Criminals but they can escape the layover-penalties.
This May 9, 2016, we should vote the right leader to our country (Philippines). But of course we couldn’t determine them personally but still we have the knowledge and a capacity to pick what we believe and trusted.
