By Artemio A. Dumlao (abrenian.com)

La Trinidad, Benguet (October 22, 2013) – An armed mayor and two of his bodyguards were held along a checkpoint in Bangued, Abra’s capital town.

Baay-Licuan town mayor Alejo Siddayao Domingo, 63, and his bodyguards Noel Culangen Bay-ed, 32, from Kilong-ulao, boliney and Eddie Boy Balweg Paredes, 30, from Nalbuan, also in Baay-Licuan were flagged down along a checkpoint in Zone 7, Banged, Abra’s capital town and policemen found them keeping high-powered firearms despite the nationwide gun ban.

Abra police director Sr. Supt. Benjamin Lusad said policemen from Abra Police Provincial Public Safety Company (PPSC) who were conducting a checkpoint seized a caliber 45 Federal pistol with serial number 507099 with a magazine loaded with 6 bullets from Paredes, and a Norinco caliber .45 pistol with serial number 901021 with a magazine loaded with 4 bullets from Bay-ed.

Lusad said Mayor Domingo admitted he owned the firearms but was not able to present appropriate documentation showing his exemption from the gun ban.

Charges were filed against the mayor and his bodyguards, police said.

In Benguet, the background of three males are being checked after they were arrested for wielding a gun and bullets at a checkpoint in Beckel, La Trinidad town Sunday morning.

Benguet police director Sr. Superintendent Rodolfo Azurin, Jr., named those being investigated as Sunny Daguio, 22, vegetable disposer, a native of Dupao, Pinukpuk, Kalinga and alleged leader of the group and his two cohorts Jomar Mayangao Pagang, 30, native of Bauko, Mt. Province and Rey Cajigan Pinasig, 20, native of Lepanto, Mankayan, Benguet.

Azurin said tipster told policemen to flag down a Kia Besta van with the suspects on it. The tip was proven right when policemen found a cal. 38 paltic revolver with no serial number loaded with 5 rounds bullets, 12 pieces of assorted bullets and 1 compressor; 1 crocodile jack; 1 steel cutter; 1 driller; a grinder, 1 box blow torch; 3 tanks of Solane LPG; 1 saver gas tank; 2 knives; a paint slayer compressor; 1 black printer; 1 Nokia X3 cellular phone; 1 Alcatel cellular phone; 1 Samsung GT cellular phone; and assorted jewelries with a still undetermined value placed in a box.

Azurin said the van was impounded until the trio, who were also temporarily detained, could show them they own it.***Artemio A. Dumlao*** (abrenian.com)

  5. Mayors n other officials are afraid to go around w/o bodyguards, because of their crimes to the people. Again, the only solution to clean abra’s rampant corruptions n lawlessness is a joined law enforcers n NPA forces to destroy the roots by following Moises, king David n Joshua examples. Why kill each other when you are presumed righteous. Eradicate the evil minded politicians who are demon possessed to make Abra peaceful. You will be justified.

      • We hate to hear people murdered especially the innocent. We see how how corrupt leaders enjoy life from our sacrifices. We see people living with 2 or les meals with little rice n a little veggies per day because the thieves took away what is due for them to lighten their miserable lives . Do you think God is happy with this kind of scenario? Are you happy that these helpless poor, which are so many, die slowly while the corrupt n their family enjoy super luxury life without conscience. What you think, what you feel and do, you are justified. I believe God does not change. He is the righteous God yesterday, today n eternity.

      • This bible student Tagamasid has a leftist lawyer adviser. He destroys spiritualism with his wayward thoughts. A hypocrite pseudo preacher with his right hand holding a bible while his left hand holding a gun.

  6. Those who live the way of the old testament are the Jews. True Christians are those who live the teaching of Christ. Jesus literally end the way of the Jews by teaching love and forgiveness which is above the laws of Moses’ “an aye for an eye, tooth for tooth” or in simple word, punishment is based on the sin committed. Which is why Jesus Christ was regarded as enemy of the old testament law. Islam which is founded during the old testament age still follows these laws. Today’s world does not permit barbarism any longer. We have human rights laws to protect the dignity of man. Democratic liberty and bill of rights were founded based on christian tenets of love, forgiveness and equality. Priest and pastors who loves to portray Jesus as liberator of the oppress are misguided preachers that eventually joins progressive groups that desires to annihilate societies “tatsulok” structures through arm struggles. The bible states “though I say to the wicked, “You shall surely die,” yet if they turn from their sin and do what is lawful and right— if the wicked restore the pledge, give back what they have taken by robbery, and walk in the statutes of life, committing no iniquity—they shall surely live, they shall not die (Ezekiel 33:14-15)”.

    • I have no adviser, but the guidance of the Words. I repeat, what does it meant when The Lord said ” I did not come to destroy the law, but to fulfill the Law”. Of course, The Lord digested the Decalogue given to Moises in 2 which focused on LOVE; Love to God n fellowmen in Matthew 22: 37 n 39.. Again, Godi is the same, yesterday,today n tomorrow…………….Respect of ones belief is important in Democracy.
      Yes, I’m a bible student, a humble student. Unlike others who love to exult themselves with religiousity. But i believe there are teachers who failed government exams and many failed many times before they made it. Modesty aside, I took 4 civil service tests and passed them all where I had the opportunity to select the job I love best. This implies that not all professionals are better than students. And not all priest, pastors and other church leaders are better in bible knowledge than mere members. In the dark ages in Europe, many farmers are even better than priests in bible knowledge because during those days church practiced doctrines based on traditions, paganism, not based on the Scripture.
      Ti la ammok nga nagbaliw ket ti daton nga mapadara idi, ngem itan naawanen kalpasan nga naibokbok ti Dara ni Jesus diay Cross. To be save Ezekiel 18:31,32- removal of sins,repentance,confessions, be born again with new heart n spirit.

      • Bible student Tagamasid. You love to post your resume. Be truthful, you mentioned in you previous post that you have a lawyer friend adviser (I presumed he is from the left as implied by the way you critic things). Since I joined the a.com I already recognized your wayward thoughts. Be careful with your emotions, it may consume your spirit. Be a true born again christian as you have mentioned. Developed your relationship to God through repentance and solicitude. Hence you can make your post more life giving.

  7. Ammom daytan ES. Diak ugali ti aginagan kalaksidan na dagiti tao nga rebbengna nga maraem. Ngem dagiti hypocrito nga agpatpatang ti kinapakumbaba ngem tagtagabassitenda met padada nga tao, agpatpatang ti kaasi ngem napatpateg met ti biag ni agturay nga mannakaw ken pumatpatay ngem ti biag dagiti pobre nga suldado ken NPA, awan serbina nga dakamaten. Sorry, ngem no manarita kasla experto ti amin, ngem awan met panangrespetar na ti kalintigan ti sabali ti panagsarita ken pammati. Pudno ti kuna ti maysa nga kabsat, mangpatakder koman ti bukodna nga simbaan. Wenno apal nga dakes ta uray’narabaw ti ‘kapanunutan ‘ ni Tagamasid ket adda dua wenno tallo nga mamati kencuana? Ta amin nga puntos nga maipresentar ket supprtaran ti bible facts quoted. Daytoy mangdaydayaw bagina ket tayla agbirnirok ti babbalawena nga kapanunutan ti sabali nga baliktad ta freedom of speech n belief nga ramen ti Democrasya. Awan pay naktitak nga opinionna nga agturong ti solusyon nga mansolbar ti rinuker ken riribok ti Abra. Sorry for fellow bloggers, this will be the last that I confront this kind of pretender.

    Food for thoughts: ” you hypocrite, first take the pluck out of your eyes, and then you’ll see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’ s eye” Matthew 7:5
    “Apay nga kitaem ta mukat ta kabsatmo, ngem dimo met mad law ta nagdakelan nga mukatmo?” Mateo 7:3

  9. Ka Eric Shawn, Ako ang puntiria ni Gayyem Tagamasid. I criticized him viciously recently that is way I gut his nerve. I never exults myself gayyem Tagamsid. I used the term “We” if ever I sense wrongdoings. I am not inclined to post my resume to broadcast who I am and what I have accomplished. As a person who puts spirituality above my life, I am strong and aggressive if spiritual law is defiled. I am mad with the way you portray your self as a religious person and yet you used devilish terms. Common Gayyem Tagamasid, you can be better than that. With regards to the word “Freedom” I think this is a term being misused most often. Here is an analogy: a man gut his driver’s license, does this means that he has already a freedom to drive down town in whatever he wants? it cannot be. We have traffic laws to protects pedestrians and the driver himself. You bought a videoke, now you have a freedom to sing out loud and all night, but remember there are neighborhoods that has freedom to sleep peacefully also. Freedom is only within the realm of principle and goes hand in hand with responsibility. Laws are created to limits and hinders evils. Peace.
