We are Lester Pascua’s friends.
We come together to give a voice to his story.
Five unknown men, brandishing metal pipes and hidden by masks, viciously attacked our friend, Lester, in Katipunan at the night of April 29. As our friend Lester was walking from his house to buy dinner, these men mercilessly, and without any provocation, attacked him. They ganged up on him and beat him to a pulp. As if their treachery and brutality was never enough, they soon drove off in a silver Vios (plate number ZMD 300) to escape.
As his friends, we continue to receive persistent reports that this crime was a fraternity-related hit gone wrong. Knowing that our friend Lester was never a fraternity member in UP, and had no known enemies, only heightens our suspicions that this was a case of mistaken identity. In our eyes, Lester was an innocent person caught up in a senseless act of vendetta.
Even as we still piece together what really happened in this case, and we trust our authorities in their investigation, we still condemn – in the strongest terms – this barbaric act. If it was indeed true that this was a fraternity hit, these men who attacked him are no different from criminals. These criminals, whoever they are, must not go unpunished.
We are angry that these things can actually happen in our streets. We are indignant that these hoodlums think that they can get away with their crimes. Nonetheless, we are united by our demand to exact justice.
As Lester’s friends, we come together as one to bring attention to his case, and never stop until the criminals who have done this to him are punished.
If you believe in what we stand for, please repost this.
Let us show these criminals that we don’t take this sitting down.

Gibo -- You have the chops, but your wife is scary (hello, Imelda part 2).
Gordon -- Why is there a feeling that if you become president you'll just order people around and gloat about how galing and sleepless you are? What you did with Subic, amazing, but...
Bro. Eddie -- If this were a perfect world, you'll be the perfect president. But maybe there are other callings for you, more important than being president.
Villar -- You were doing so well! But using the memory of your dead brother? I draw the line there.
De Los Reyes -- With those endorsements for Ang Kapatiran, we never know, dude, we never know... BUT I HAVE A LOT OF BUTs AGAINST YOU.
Perlas -- Makes me wish there were just two candidates, because if you were pitted against any one of these people, I'm thinking it will be a tough fight.
Jamby -- Galunggong, dude. That was the death of it all.
Erap -- >.<
Yesterday I found this adorable cookbook at Starmall (plus an Anne Lamott novel, Blue Shoe).
The pages are perfect for framing! Because it's one recipe per page, and all of it's handwritten! <3
