  1. So Mr.Ranavales has the american been convicted yet? who are you to say anything? But if he is guilty he deserves punishment.And dont let this one scumbag over shadow all the americans there helping in Tacloban and other areas.If Mr.R.has so much time to post comments,maybe he should be more useful and go help yolanda victims.

  2. I’d like to hear his side of the story. Just because it’s illegal, doesn’t mean it’s not justified.

  3. Let us detain him at the Makati City jail… then let the detainees to give him a

    WELCOME CEREMONY which is being done by fraternities to their neophyte members.
