    That's horrible! It seems, still there are guys out there, who try to do drug paddling in massive scale. Any potential political patronage here?

    Enough is Enough ! Pl. Impose death penalty for these culprits' and government should destroy these drugs in the presence of the general public as these drugs may reach the public from the warehouses of our police or justice department.

    Why the god has not given us a president like Philippine President Rodrigo ?

    Death penalty a must for the traffickers and the accomplices. What happens to the detected drugs? They must be destroyed in public ASAP.

    How many detections have we seen in the past. They have all died a natural death after the initial media buzz. Why is the name of the culprit who was to receive this haul is never published? What happend to all these drugs? In other countries people get the death sentence for far less drug offences. May be the importer is too influential or untouchable by the law. Please, the media need to follow up and give the public the real, true information.
