Ex-forest ranger shot dead in Abra

By Artemio Dumlao (philstar.com)

LA Trinidad, Benguet – A former forest ranger was killed by assassins Sunday night in San Juan, Abra.

Guillermo dela Cuadra, 63, of Barangay Guimba, was playing cards with other villagers at a friend’s house in Barangay Supi-il when still unidentified men shot him with assault rifles.

The wounded Cuaded died while being transferred from the St. Therese Wellness Center to the Abra Provincial Hospital in Bangued town.

Police investigators found 12 cartridges for Cal 7.62 mm firearm, two cartridges of Cal. 5.56 mm, and one ammunition of Caliber 7.62 mm.

Investigators have yet to determine the motive for Cuadra’s killing.

  2. I think it’s about time to install the Street-Cameras all over Abra. That should have been a project when Abra was labeled the killing fields of the North. More streetlights koma pay.

  3. Was he on duty during the time of shooting or was he retired already?
    Nevertheless, my sympathy and condolence to his loved ones. Don’t worry, he is not totally dead. His soul or spirit is still alive and if resurrection happens, you will be altogether again. Or, when your time comes, you will meet him in heaven where there’s no more problems like illnesses, financial hardship or poverty, thief politicians and their vicious bodyguards, etc…etc…
    Life on earth is just a temporary taste of hardship but if you are now a true believer, eternal happy life with your loved ones is definitely yours. How do I know? Why, do you have something to lose in believing it? What if it’s true, will you accept that you were borne as a loser again? Only loser asks this question, however, talk to any pastor/preacher/priest of any kind of religion and listen what they have to say that might erase your doubt like “Doubting Thomas”. Please tell me, your name is not Tomas.

    • I am not surprise if someday you will prove by yourself why we need to be reminded sometimes with some verses from the Bible. People are backsliding for the almighty government fund knowing that if they do bad things, bad things will happen to their life. Naeling, if you love your friends or relatives that you knew as bad influence or thief politicians, are you scared or ashamed to remind their misdeeds so that they could also breathe freely like you do? I am not, and since majority here are maybe related with thief politicians, I think this is also a good venue to condemn their wickedness and enlighten others particularly the still innocent youth the consequence of having dishonest or thief government servants. Jesus did that to the hypocrite Phrasees and Saducees, hence, no conflict of interest, I guessed. However, I stand corrected though for I am not through yet in my quest of finding the Truth. And if this is blasphemy as insinuated by Naeling, God please forgive me!
      Thanks for your other kind words brother but be careful of what you wish for others. Sometimes it backfires but I hope it won’t happened to you for I have already forgiven you. Will you be kind enough also to share with us if you have something better way of consoling the grieving family, please?
      God bless you and your loved ones Naeling…….. (Do you think this kind of wish will backfire too?)..I hope..!

    • Basbasaem kadi ti Sao ni apo Jesus diay nasantuan nga librona idi adda ditoy daga kabsat Naeling? No anagem a nasayaat, amin nga sinarita ket maipanggep ti langit, no kasano nga isagana ti maysa nga tao ti bagina tapno maikari ti paraiso. Ti tao masapul nga ammuenna nga nasayaat maipapan ti lugar nga kayatna nga papanan. Masapul nga ammona ti dalan tapno makadanon sadiay. Jesus said amongst ‘……seek and you’ll find”. I’m the Way, the Truth and the Life” “no one can go to my Father except thru me”. Isu nga ditoy daga ti pakaamuan ti Tao maipanggep ti langit, no saan sigurado nga maiyaw-awan ket matnag ti pakadadaelanna. Ti mangbukel ti namnama ti ipapan diay langit ket natibker nga pammati, Faith, ti kinapudno ken tarnaw ti Sao ti Apo.

  6. Amin nga tao managbasol. Ti gungunna ti basol ket patay. Asinno ngarud ti maisalakan? Ti pannakaisalakan ket sagut ti Dios! Read John 3:16, how you will be saved. But Jesus said” if you love me, keep my commandments. Even Jesus, the son of man curse the hypocrites. Until now we love to go to church and claimed to be Christians, but our attitudes and everyday actions is opposite to Christians basic teachings, amongst: humility, kindness, respect to the rights of others such as right of speech which even educated ignore to respect. Pudno unay ti pagsasao, ‘ adu dagiti nakaadal ngem awan sursuroda’. they love to exult themselves and despise the rights of others! ‘ iibagam nga kristiano ka ngem ang inaldaw met nga agbasbasolka” .AGPANUNOT KAN AH”

      • Naimbag nga aldaw pagayam nga syoke. Maymayat ta syoke ta makaparayaw met ti pannakaamo mi kaniam ditoy A.com. Offline nak it napalabas. Pasensya kenni pagayam nga Kanaig. I did not mean or wish him to go rest in peace. Kayat ko la nga sawen, sakbay ka nga makaibalikas iti maysa a banag, napimpimtas no adda kapadasam a substantial iti dayta a banag tapno nataltalek iti panangibagam. No met maysa tay a relihioso a tao, saan nga ummo a ditoy tay A.com iti pangisawangan iti nadiosan nga suro, ngamin adda nga panangusig it maaramid tayo. I stand with my word, “conflict of interest”. To be Godly means, love overwhelms you, no hatred whatsoever, only forgiveness. Maysa pay, gayyem nga tagamasid, kuna ti biblia( pakiresearch na lang.) “The Father gives the authority of judgement to the Son (JEsus)”. Not for us, specially as sinful as we are. Do not judge, for the judgement you pronounce will be the judgement you receive. Pasensya na. lumabas ang kunti kong kaalaman sa ispirual na bagay.
