Lawyer Glenn Chong’s close-in aide and bodyguard was ambushed on Sunday. Richard Red Santillan was driving Chong’s car when still unidentified assailants peppered the car with bullets, ki11ing the victim instantly. Reports said there were 30 bullet holes in the car, proof that the attackers are keen on ki11ing their target.

Election Reform Advocate

Atty. Glenn Chong is known to be an election reform advocate, and was the one who exposed the alegged anomaly in the vice presidential race between Leni Robredo and Bongbong Marcos. Chong argued that Smartmatic had a hand in the cheating, and is relentless in his pursuit of the truth.

His fearless expose gained him a lot of praises from the people, but unfortunately, he also gained a lot of enemies. The recent ambush of his close-in aide is a clear indication that somebody wants the lawyer de4d, or silenced.

Not Without Support

The bloggers who’s on the side of the government were quick to lend their support to the victim and their condemnation of this violent attack to one of their own. Blogger Sass Rogando Sasot, from the Netherlands, posted a tweet confirming the ambush, and said that the incident is the real story of someone being threatened with de4th, and not the people like Jover Laurio and Maria Ressa whom the Anti-Duterte bloggers are trying to portray as in danger.

Davao Lawyer and media influencer Ahmed Paglinawan also tweeted his usual brave stance against the common enemy. He said “ You can try ki11ing some of us, but you can’t ki11 all of us. We will get you, m0therfuck3rs.”

Netizens’ Outrage

The netizens were outraged by the violent incident, and couldn’t help but express their views on the matter. Some have said that it is clearly a move to silence Glenn Chong, and its quite obvious who the perpetrators are. They suspect that the yellows and the Smartmatic has something to do with this.

We all hope that justice will prevail over Santillan’s de4th.
