From a stance of pleading to have their freedom from jail, they now come out demanding an apology with upraised clenched fists.
They probably never realized what they were in. The so-called Morong-43 had the makings of a training cadre for the NPA. Some of them confessed ties with the NPA. Most probably the instructors.
The rest probably never knew that they were part of the training cadre. Prosecutions on a case-to-case basis are in order. But malacanang chose to set them free unconditionally.
This sort of thing happens in the country where there has been no counter-propaganda groups formed to conduct seminars all over the countryside. If the NPA can do this type of seminars, the government could and should.
The AFP Information, the Dept of Interior, and the JAGO may all get together and form this.
The public need only to be educated the right way to prevent insurgency.
