Lawyer and News5 TV host Bruce Rivera has taken to Facebook to unleash his wrath against Senators who are now raising a howl vs RA 10592 or GCTA after news report that convicted dr^g lords and killers were let loose, thanks to the said law.
Rivera warned the senators to make sure that they were not senators yet when the controversial law was passed. Because according to him, the Executive are merely implementing the law and the IRR were crafted by De Lima and Roxas.
Rivera said he was not surprised the government was outwitted when the BuCor was solely tasked to determine who are qualified or not and worse, its decision is irrevocable. Rivera lamented the senators did not raise a hoot then and perhaps they even voted in the affirmative when it was to vote.
Rivera found four red flags of RA 10592 that should have rung the alarm bells of senators if they had exhibited due diligence of their work.
For example, Rivera said that RA 10592 exhibited invalid delegation of power by giving too much leeway for the BuCor to determine the parameters.
Rivera concluded this is the result of spending too much time on public hearings disguised as an exercise in aid of legislation. Instead of studying the bills they are crafting, Rivera said the senators spend more time thinking how to gain more media mileage.
Rivera said he is not surprised this is happening. With the numbers that qualified for GCTA, there is no assurance, the BuCor Chief, warden etc will not be outfoxed by people considered as scums of the earth. Thousands and thousands of files were on the plate of the BuCor Chief to read and it was possible, there were some he did not read because he was in a hurry to make a decision to beat the deadline. However, the lawmakers who only need to read 10 provisions in the law and yet they failed to find the loopholes of the said bill.
Rivera asked how come we can’t say PNoy is not liable when he signed the bill into law and to think he had a veto power?
Rivera remarked the senators are now “washing their hands” mode while Rappler said blaming PNoy for Sanchez’s release is fake news. An apparently frustrated Rivera asked whose fault is this now?
Rivera further asked who was at fault, the one who is implementing a very defective law? Or the lawmakers who crafted a defective (chaotic) law?
Rivera ended the FB post with a message to F@cebook that his post isn’t fake news because he was merely asking a hypothetic question while injecting one’s personal opinion as a political commentator and a lawyer with a political show in a reputable media network.
In case you’re wondering why Rivera was mad, it appeared he was sharing a link that passes the guilt to ex-Pres N0y in the event former Calauan Mayor Sanchez was released from prison.

SA MGA SENADOR NA NAGTATALAK SA RA 10592 or GCTA DAHIL MAY MGA NAKALABAS NA DRUG LORDS AT KILLER:
Siguraduhin niyo na hindi kayo Senador nung pinasa ang batas ha. Kasi ang executive, pinapatupad lang ang batas at ang IRR na gawa ni De Lima at Roxas. Paano naman hindi sila malulusutan, ang BuCor lang ang madedetermine at irrevocable pa. Hindi kayo pumalag nuon at baka bumoto pa kayo sa batas.
Una, invalid delegation of power ang batas dahil it gave too much leeway for the BuCor to determine the parameters.
Pangalawa, the law did not even define what is a heinous crime for purposes of the exemption kaya tuloy nalito ang BuCor o di kaya nagawan ng paraan ng iba ang kakulangan ng batas.
Pangatlo, ang clemency at pardon, right ng Pangulo pero ito bakit walang say ang Pangulo?
Pang-apat, ano ang ibig sabihin ng good conduct? Paano naging good? Tapos kung gumawa ng bad, magiging good pa din ba? Masyadong naging mabait ang batas na pinasa ninyo tapos ngayon ay magrereklamo kayo.
Yan kasi ang napapala sa kaka-public hearing ninyo in aid of legislation. Imbes na napag-aaralan ninyo ang mga batas na pinapasa ninyo, mas naging masipag kayo sa pagpapapogi sa media. Kaya ayan. Sa dami ba naman ng pumapasok sa GCTA, paano masisiguro ng BuCor Chief, warden, etc. na hindi siya masalisihan ng mga halang ang kaluluwa. Libo-libong files ang babasahin niya kaya malamang may mga hindi niya talaga mababasa dahil may deadline di ba? Pero ang mambabatas, sampung provisions lang RA 10592, hindi niyo pa nakita ang mga mali.
Tapos, paano walang liability si PNoy eh siya ang pumirma para maging batas. At may veto power siya. Hugas kamay na naman kayo at sasabihin pa ng Rappler na fake news ang sabihin na hindi liable si PNoy sa release ni Sanchez. So sino ngayon ang may kasalanan?
Ang nagpatupad ng batas na magulo?
O ang gumawa ng batas na magulo?
Facebook, this is not news. I am actually asking a hypothetical question while giving my own personal opinion as a political commentator and lawyer with a political show in a reputable media network.
