The latest death wish equation seems to be this:
STEP 1 : A neophyte congressman from a political family with bodyguards in tow.
Lanao del Sur Rep. Mohammed Hussein Pangandaman.
STEP 2. Add a multi-million sports car like this Porsche 911 Carrera:
Porsche 911 Carrera Sports Car. The “alleged” official workhorse of the Philippine Congress.
STEP 3. Add a Number “8” plate :
The New Wang-Wang. The much abused congressional license plate.
STEP 4: Add a lowly Security Guard who says the following in awe:
“Pucha, Ocho ang plaka ng Porsche….wow..hanep….(translation: Sonamagun!…the Porsche has plate number 8 ” – coupled with drooling…)….
A Lowly “Jaguar”. But whom the President calls his “Boss.”
ARAGUY!!! SIR WAG NAMAN….WAG PO WAG PO KOYA…..
ABS-CBN News reports Congressman allegedly mauling a Security Guard:
A first-term lawmaker from Lanao del Sur has found himself in the middle of a tempest over allegations of mauling a security guard in a commercial car park in Quezon City.
Mohammed Hussein Pangandaman faced the House media Monday afternoon after queries about a newspaper article alleging that a congressman driving a luxury car refused to be inspected by security last Wednesday when he was about to park.
A check with the Quezon City Police District Detachment 9 in Anonas, Quezon City showed the following blotter report:
“Aug 31 935pm: This time and date SG Ricardo Bonayog y Gate 33 years old SG of Eagle Watch posted at Ayala Technohub UP Campus Diliman Quezon City appeared personally before this stn and requested to be placed on records to wit. That at 430pm aug 31 2011 whie he was performing his duty one Porsche Carrera colored silver was with plate number 8 appeared with the company of one Innova Red pn PCI 150 allegedly on said TDPO the occupant of the Porsche Carrera approached him and with reasons of his own got irked then boxed him several times causing him to fell on the ground in the presence of some witness.”
The blotter did not name the congressman.
Philippine Daily Inquirer reported it differently: Guard started it, says solon!
Pangandaman himself denied before reporters on Monday a news item that said he punched a security guard twice in the head for refusing to exempt his Porsche Carrera with a number 8 license plate from the usual security check in the parking lot of the commercial strip along Commonwealth Avenue, Quezon City.
Pangandaman’s security escorts then reportedly disarmed the security guard, who has remained unidentified, while the lawmaker proceeded to his meeting in the area.
“I have no written statement because I want to speak from the heart and tell the truth. I felt bad about this news. I don’t know how they could fabricate this kind of story and malign my name,” Pangandaman said.
He said he was at the Technohub with three members of his staff and a police detail.
He admitted driving his Porsche but said the security guard was the first one to act rudely. “He said ‘P*tsa, ocho (s*it, an 8)’ when the attendant asked him for my car’s license number.”
He said that he talked to the guard in “a gentle and civilized” manner.
Pangandaman said he was surprised the security guard followed him to the parking slot where they again argued about his license plate which he said was a “protocol” plate.
Then the discussion got heated, he said. He said it was the security guard who attempted to draw his gun and that he quickly held onto the guard’s gun before he could take it out of its holster, while he used his other hand to hit the guard in the head with some papers he was holding.
He said that his police detail then intervened and disarmed the guard.
Wangwang Pnoy. Can he go against his kind – meaning members of political clans?
Now, will the President act on this latest display of abuse which in every angle belittled his campaign against the “Wang-Wang” minded (supposedly) public servants??? He should put beef to his words by making an example out of this youthful but allegedly abusive congressman who would take it upon a lowly security guard (why don’t he at least pick on a Presidential Security Guard member and find out what he is looking for).
Prove your worth, protect your people. Ang Galing Party List Congressman Mikey Arroyo
Congressman Mikey Arroyo who is supposedly taking the cudgels for security guards as party list representative for the Ang Galing party-list group should be up in arms and file the disciplinary case against Pangandaman. Bakit takot ka ba Mikey? This is the best time you put like up to your responsibility as the “voice of the the simpleng security guard.” At least, people will see that you are not there in Congress just to protect your parents from being charged for plunder.
If these two politicians – Noynoy and Mikey will not do anything about what this “Ampatuan” of a neophyte congressman has allegedly did to a lowly Filipino breadwinner, can the rest of the country continue to believe in their sincerity?
