What time and PR can do

What can I say, it's only been a few weeks since the brutal mauling at the Valley Golf Course and already, it seems the Pangandamans are now the victims in that sordid incident.

PR spin 1:
The de la Pazes started the brawl and the older de la Paz provoked the mauling by poking an umbrella at the Pangandamans.

Question:
Being poked by an umbrella deserves a mauling by two burly men and their four bodyguards, who were also carrying long firearms at that time?

PR spin 2:
The de la Pazes are arrogant and so full of themselves, they swagger around in golf courses like they own the golf courses.

Question:
Being arrogant deserves a mauling by two burly men and their four bodyguards who were also carrying long firearms at that time?

PR spin 3:
The de la Pazes had reinforcement in the form of Mrs. de la Paz who arrived at the country club with a knife and a male relative who was lugging a baseball.

Question:
The supposed reinforcements were a match to two burly men and their four bodyguards who were also carrying long firearms at that time?

I am tempted to write more. But I will assert the same point: The Pangandamans had the upper hand in that brawl. They had bodyguards. They had firearms. There were more of them. They also are elected officials who are supposed to adhere to a higher standard of public behavior.

Don't forget to mention that the Pangandamans also failed a libel case against de La Paz's daughter for her blog post of the incident.

Honestly - how hard could it be for the offending parties to swallow their pride, and apologize
like civil men?

The more Pangandaman tries to defend his side, the more he just shows how onion-skinned and full of himself he is. Not to mention how inept he and his attorney is at handling online media.

First rule: Filing a lawsuit on a blog does NOT shut them up. It may quiet the blog, but it's just going to piss off any other blogs that pick up the news.

I agree.

I am flabbergasted that the Pangandamans continue to vehemently deny their guilt. They mauled two people. One of the Pangandamans is mayor of a city. They are sons of a cabinet official. They should be made accountable for their behaviors.
