-People v. Ranin, Jr., G.R. No. 173023, 25 June 2008
it took 9 years before a decision could be reached in the death of nino calinao, a senior up journalism student who was gunned down in broad daylight in palma hall on feb. 19, 1999. sure, the court sentenced the hitman to reclusion perpetua, without the possibility of parole. but to this day, the alleged masterminds roam freely. after 9 years.
now that's just brutal. there's no other way to describe it.
and i thought nothing could be more brutal than nino's death.
