Man, sentenced to life, chokes prosecutor

02/27/2014

MANILA – A man who was sentenced to life choked a state prosecutor in Quezon City after his verdict was handed down Thursday.

Onofre Surat Jr., who was convicted of kidnapping for ransom with homicide, choked Senior Deputy State Prosecutor Richard Anthony Fadullon after his sentence was read at a Quezon City trial court.

Fadullon said Surat still managed to choke him because the latter's handcuffs were worn in front of his body.

The prosecutor was given treatment, and Surat is now back in police custody.

A Philippine Star report said Surat had been tagged as the mastermind in the 2001 kidnap-slay of Mark Harris Bacalla, son of the late Quezon City Regional Trial Court Judge Marciano Bacalla. – report from Johnson Manabat, dzMM

Prosecutor recalls getting choked by convict using handcuffs

by Ira Pedrasa, ABS-CBNnews.com
02/27/2014

MANILA - Senior Deputy State Prosecutor Richard Anthony Fadullon on Thursday recounted how he was choked and injured by a convict using handcuffs.

Fadullon was with Onofre Surat Jr. when the latter was found guilty of kidnapping for ransom with homicide and sentenced on Thursday morning at the Quezon City Regional Trial Court.

In an interview with radio dzMM, Fadullon recalled noticing that Surat was handcuffed in front of his body instead of on his back.

“The protocol should have been the handcuffs were on the back, especially since his case is not an ordinary crime," Fadullon said.

Surat had been tagged as the mastermind behind the 2001 kidnap-slay of Mark Harris Bacalla, the son of the late Quezon City Judge Marciano Bacalla.

Fadullon narrated that after Branch 226 Judge Manuel Sta. Cruz, Jr. read the decision against Surat, the latter gave a short response.

“He said something like, ‘I’d like to say sorry to the family of the victim, but I really did not do anything wrong,’” Fadullon recalled.

Fadullon said the judge then asked him if he had any reply to Surat’s statement.

“I said, ‘Kalokohan po yung ganun. You apologize for something but you’re not admitting to what you did. Parang walang remorse. It’s more hurtful to the family.’”

When the judge dismissed them, Fadullon told the family of the victim that they should leave the court room ahead of the convict.

“As I was motioning for them out the door, he [Surat] lunged at my neck and used the grooves of the handcuff to choke me,” Fadullon said.

He said he managed to push Surat away which enabled the guards to subdue the convict.

He said he did not know he already had gashes until the judge called his attention that he was bleeding.

Fadullon said he was immediately given first aid, but he had to go to the hospital to get some anti-tetanus shots.

He said he is “okay" now but will have to go back to the hospital for further check-up.

Surat, meanwhile, is now detained in a “high-risk facility.”

He will be transferred to the New Bilibid Prison in Muntinlupa, Fadullon said.

Fadullon is one of the more well-known state prosecutors in the Department of Justice, having handled the prosecution of the Ampatuans in the Maguindanao massacre case and the Moro National Liberation Front members in the Zamboanga siege.

Philippines should reinstate capital punishment. Life sentence costs tax payer money to support serial killers. Lethal injection is quick and will serve to curb crime rates. It will also indirectly solve the swelling of jails in Philippines.

During Marcos years, firing squad ilang complement.

His time in jail hasn't changed his barbaric behavior. Why sustain his life with tax payer's money. Execute him.

Manay,

On the contrary, capital punishment, when conducted in a rational manner, is an agent of justice. One of the great early church fathers, St. Augustine of Hippo, defended the use of capital punishment:

"The same divine law which forbids the killing of a human being allows certain exceptions, as when God authorises killing by a general law or when He gives an explicit commission to an individual for a limited time.

Since the agent of authority is but a sword in the hand, and is not responsible for the killing, it is in no way contrary to the commandment, 'Thou shalt not kill' to wage war at God's bidding, or for the representatives of the State's authority to put criminals to death, according to law or the rule of rational justice."



-St. Augustine of Hippo, Doctor of the One, Holy, Roman Catholic Church

no, lorenz, please.  human as our law enforcers are (from the police to the judges), we are well aware that it is often only the poor who get the death sentence.  the rich and the powerful can afford the best and well-connected lawyers while the poor cannot.  dying is a one-way ticket; there is no reprieve for those who may be proven innocent after all. :(

Albert Pierrepoint (30 March 1905 – 10 July 1992) was a long-serving hangman in England. He executed at least 400 people, about half of them war criminals, including William Joyce (one of the men dubbed "Lord Haw-Haw"), and John Amery, whom he considered the bravest man he had ever hanged.

The Church's Teaching

Over the centuries, the Church's writers have defended the traditional Christian teaching on capital punishment.

St. Augustine explained St. Paul's teaching on the State's right to inflict capital punishment. Certainly the State may execute convicted criminals. But it should exercise Christian forbearance and thus temper juridical severity.

Pope Leo I in the fifth century and Pope Nicholas I in the ninth century made it clear that the Church herself could not be directly involved in capital punishment; but the pontiffs assumed that the State was divinely authorized to do so. So, too, the Councils of Toledo (675) and Fourth Lateran (1215) forbade the clergy to take direct part in the juridical process or sentencing of a person on a capital charge. But again, the councils took for granted that the State may condemn a convicted criminal to death and execute the sentence.

St. Thomas Aquinas made the classic defense of capital punishment. He reasoned that "if a man be dangerous and infectious to the community, on account of some sin, it is praiseworthy and advantageous that he be killed in order to safeguard the common good" ( Summa Theologica II, II, 64, 2). Certainly the crime had to be very serious, and the welfare of society was at stake. But there was no question about the moral validity of capital punishment.

In the sixteenth century, the Council of Trent mandated the publication of the Roman Catechism. Promulgated by Pope St. Pius V in 1566, it has been confirmed by one sovereign pontiff after another. Thus in 1905, when Pope St. Pius X decreed the catechetical instruction to be given in the Catholic world, he mandated that the basis of this instruction should be the Roman Catechism. In dealing with the fifth commandment of the Decalogue, this fundamental catechism of Catholic doctrine declares:


There are some exceptions to the extent of this prohibition to killing. The power of life and death is permitted to certain civil magistrates because theirs is the responsibility under law to punish the guilty and protect the innocent. Far from being guilty of breaking this commandment, such an execution of justice is precisely an act of obedience to it. For the purpose of the law is to protect and foster human life. This purpose is fulfilled when the legitimate authority of the state is exercised by taking the guilty lives of those who have taken innocent life (The Fifth Commandment, 4).

In the twentieth century, Pope Pius XII provided a full doctrinal defense of capital punishment. Speaking to Catholic jurists, he explained what the Church teaches about the authority of the State to punish crimes, even with the death penalty.

The Church holds that there are two reasons for inflicting punishment, namely "medicinal" and "vindictive." The medicinal purpose is to prevent the criminal from repeating his crime, and to protect society from his criminal behavior. The vindicative is to expiate for the wrongdoing perpetrated by the criminal. Thus reparation is made to an offended God, and the disorder caused by the crime is expiated.

Equally important is the Pope's insistence that capital punishment is morally defensible in every age and culture of Christianity. Why? Because the Church's teaching on "the coercive power of legitimate human authority" is based on "the sources of revelation and traditional doctrine." It is wrong, therefore "to say that these sources only contain ideas which are conditioned by historical circumstances." On the contrary, they have "a general and abiding validity." ( Acta Apostolicae Sedis, 1955, pp 81-2).

Behind this declaration of the Vicar of Christ is a principle of our Catholic faith. Most of the Church's teaching, especially in the moral order, is infallible doctrine because it belongs to what we call her ordinary universal magisterium. There are certain moral norms that have always and everywhere been held by the successors of the Apostles in communion with the Bishop of Rome. Although never formally defined, they are irreversibly binding on the followers of Christ until the end of the world.

Such moral truths are the grave sinfulness of contraception and direct abortion. Such, too, is the Catholic doctrine which defends the imposition of the death penalty.

Certainly Christianity, like Christ, is to be merciful. Certainly Christians are to be kind and forgiving. But Christ is God. He is, indeed loving and in fact is love. But He is also just. As a just God, He has a right to authorize civil authority to inflict capital punishment.

Old Testament Morality

Those who claim that capital punishment is inherently wrong simply reject out of hand the practice of execution for grave crimes as found in the Old Testament. But they go too far.

The example of the accused in John's Gospel is no argument against capital punishment. When the Scribes and Pharisees brought the woman in front of Jesus, they claimed that Moses ordered such a person to be stoned to death. So they tried to trap the Savior by asking Him, "What is your opinion." But Jesus did not answer by saying that stoning is forbidden. Instead, He told the woman's accusers, "Let him that is without sin among you cast the first stone at her" (John 7:53-8:12).

Of course the New Testament is a development of the Old Law. Of course, Christ preached and practiced mercy. Of course Christianity is the fulfillment of the Mosaic Covenant. But, as Christ made clear, He did not come to destroy Law and the Prophets. He came to bring them to perfection. It is not logical to conclude from the Christianizing of capital punishment in the Old Testament to the abolition of capital punishment in the New Testament.

New Testament Teaching

Nowhere in the New Testament is capital punishment outlawed. On the contrary, the New Testament not only recognizes the right of the State to exercise authority in the name of God, but enjoins obedience to the State in applying the laws of God to its citizens.

As already noted, St. Paul explicitly declares that the State has authority from God to punish criminals. Christ Himself tells us to give to Caesar what belongs to Caesar. St. Peter enjoins Christians to be good citizens. Moreover, we are to obey civil authority — not mainly, but also "because you are afraid of being punished" (Romans 13:1-6).

But Sacred Scripture needs to be explained. As we reread the early Church's interpretation of the rights of civil authority, we find a remarkable thing.

From the beginning there were two variant interpretations of State authority relating to war and capital punishment. One interpretation was openly pacifist, and the other was non-pacifist.

Two names especially stand out that wrote belligerently against all war, and therefore espoused universal pacifism. Tertullian, 160-220, and Lactantius, 240-320 also fought strenuously against capital punishment of condemned criminals.

At the same time, the accepted Fathers of the Church never adopted these extreme positions, either outlawing all war as unjust or forbidding all capital punishment as inherently evil.

a great read for defending capital punishment, no doubt, lorenz.  and so it goes with defending what one truly believes in.  but let me share here what the other side, also catholic, is saying.

In his encyclical The Gospel of Life, Pope John Paul II told us that we have an inescapable responsibility of choosing to be unconditionally pro-life. This Catholic campaign brings us together for common action to end the use of the death penalty, to reject a culture of death, and to build a culture of life. It poses an old and fundamental choice: I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. Choose life, then, that you and your descendants may live. (Dt 30:19)  —USCCB, A Culture of Life and the Penalty of Death

 While the Old Testament includes some passages about taking the life of one who kills, the Old Testament and the teaching of Christ in the New Testament call us to protect life, practice mercy, and reject vengeance. —USCCB, A Culture of Life and the Penalty of Death

When Cain killed Abel, God did not end Cain's life. Instead, he sent Cain into exile, not only sparing his life but protecting it by putting a mark on Cain, lest anyone should kill him at sight (Gn 4:15). —USCCB, A Culture of Life and the Penalty of Death


it looks like the defense of one's stand, whether for or against the death penalty, can quote from the same source, the bible. :)

That , indeed , is right. There is much wisdom that can be conferred on one who studies Scripture with ecclesiastic guidance in interpretation, of course. :)
