Boy Abunda, saddened and angered by Jennifer Laude murder case

During last night’s episode of the 15-minute news talk show “Aquino & Abunda Tonight,” October 14, Boy Abunda could barely contain his irate sentiments over the murder of 26-year old Jeffrey “Jennifer” Laude, a transgender woman from Olongapo.
 
The issue arose when one of last night’s headlines read, “U.S. MARINE JOSEPH SCOTT PEMBERTON, ITINUTURONG SUSPEK SA PAGPATAY KAY JENNIFER.”
 
“Krissy, ako pagbigyan mo na ako kasi medyo may poot ng konti sa aking puso,” Boy began telling his co-host Kris Aquino.
 
Una, sa aking palagay po, this is a hate crime.
 
Pangalawa, dapat ho talaga pag-aralan o hindi kaya ibasura na talaga ang visiting forces agreement dahil dito po nanggagaling ‘yung kapangyarihan ng America na sabihing…the custody [over the offender] belongs to the U.S. military.”
 
He proceeded, with intensity and seriousness in his tone, and talked about what truly angered him with the situation.
 
Pangatlo po, itong sinasabi natin ‘yung ‘blame the victim’…na ang kanilang theory ay deception, na hindi alam nitong marine na transgendered woman si Jennifer at pangalawa ay magnanakaw, this is unfair.
 
Ito’y nakakagalit,” he added.
 
The host expressed disbelief and disgust with how some people speculated upon the matter.
 
Parang hindi kapanipaniwala na pinatay na nga, pinaslang na nga, eh ang babaligtarin pa ay ang biktima... This is totally, totally unjust. Hindi makatwiran ito para kay Jennifer na namatay.”
 
Firmly standing behind the victim, Boy said,
 
Hindi ho kasalanan ni Jennifer na siya ay pinatay.Yun ‘yung iniiwasan natin, ‘the blame game,’ na ang biktima pa ang sinisisi.”

He closed the specific segment with words to the show’s viewers.
 
Huli na lamang, sana’y manmanan ho natin ito, bantayan ho natin ito,” Boy advised.
 
Sabi nga natin, huwag tayong hihinto hanggat hindi natatapos ang kasong ito.”
