Karen Davila Voices Opinion on Binay-Dasma Issue

After the issue about the supposed arrest of three Dasmariñas Village guards by Makati Mayor Junjun Binay broke, many people including seasoned journalist Karen Davila expressed their opinions about the matter.

Davila weighed in on the issue during her dzMM radio program “Pasada Sais Trenta” wherein she said that she had nothing personal against the Binay family but the public should be made to understand “the bigger point in the story.”

Davila believes that public officials should not receive any special treatment or favors because this is the only way to achieve “tuwid na daan” that the President is pushing.

Here are the statements she made during her radio program.

Bakit? Who cares kung VIP yun? Iyan na naman tayo, nandiyan ulit sa pag VIP bigyan mong konsiderasyon. Pag ordinaryong residente, ewan ko ba.” (Why? Who cares if they’re VIP? There we go again at giving considerations to VIP. But if it’s just an ordinary citizen, I really don’t understand.)

“Eh ang daming VIP sa Pilipinas ha… Ang senador 24, ang congressmen 200 plus. Eh pano yan, lahat yun VIP, eh kung dadaan yun lahat ng alas-dose, lahat papapasukin sa Dasma o palalabasin?” (The Philippines has many VIPs…We have 24 senators and more than 200 congressmen. They’re all VIP, what if they all used that gate at 12 midnight at the same time, should they be allowed?)

“Pag nagsimula ka kasi ng ganyan, hindi tayo nasa tuwid na daan. Ang gusto nga nating magbago yung kultura natin eh diba?” (If we start like this, we’re no longer in the ‘tuwid na daan’ (straight path). Didn’t we want to change the culture?)
