What the Hell Happened?

Every country has it's share of shit, and for Philippines, one of its obvious craps are the rampant killings of the press people, all because they search for the truth. From the unknown journalists quietly murdered in the provinces to the infamous Maguindanao Massacre, press freedom in the country is still a risky business up to this day. I was thinking about this earlier this day as we were near Vicente de Lara Park this morning and I remember Eduardo Castrillo's Press Freedom Monument, a tribute to all of our slain brothers who were killed in the line of service.

I don't usually have the chance to pass by this park daily so I decided to take a few photos of the surroundings. Naturally, I went for the Press Freedom Monument since it's a grim reminder for all Filipinos to stop taking truth for granted. In this time of political tumoil and public unrest, we badly need motivation. That is why it is to my utmost surprise to see the monument in this unfortunate fashion:

The names of our fallen brothers in the media, stolen, and pulverized.
Where are all the wordsss??
Whoever did this to the monument is a fucking fools in need of some pacifier. Plus, how the hell did the entire thing fell into such state of disrepair in the first place? It's a public place for goodness' sake! It is located right in front of the Provincial Capitol. Nobody knows how to guard monuments anymore?

Sheesh... This is truly sad. All that is asked is respect but some faggots obviously don't care.
