Yesterday, our Facebook feed was flooded with photos and video of Hontiveros and Robredo visiting Kian’s wake with journalists in tow to document their visits.

The gesture of the two LP politicians though failed to impress netizens and wasted no time in bashing Leni and Risa of riding on the issue for their own political agenda.
Facebook user Snow Jestre took to Facebook accusing Robredo and Hontiveros of double standards.
Read the full pots below.
Yesterday a 16 year old murdered a pregnant woman killing the child in her womb and no one bats an eye. A 17 year old gets killed in a drug enforcement operations and everyone is losing their minds.
Why dont we just condemn both acts and hype on it as well and not be selective on one single issue alone? Is it because the media had already sensationalized it? Cmon guys, condemn the killings, dont focus too much on one incident. No life is greater than the other. I personally dont know who that Kian guy is, who he was and what he was doing. For after all, dead men tell no tales.
Stories have circulated and speculations were made, it could be true or not, but one thing is true. Both lives ended in an instant because of a single reason.
ILLEGAL DRUGS. Politicians have already took the scene. Sen Hontiveros then followed by VP Robredo who visited the wake of Kian, yet both was nowhere to be found during the wake of the family who got massacred by a drug addict for a reason na “trip trip nya lang”. Are they really there to sympathize with the family or for their own political agenda? Why didnt we hyped on this as well? Selective? Double standards?
Will both of them show up for the wake of the girl and her child? Shot dead by a mere 16 year old addict whose mother was imprisoned for the same offense.
And to those who quoted
Dati; “anak, wag kang magpa-gabi. May adik sa labas”
Ngayon; “anak wag kang magpa-gabi. May pulis sa labas”
Mga mangmang! Di hamak na mas maraming matitinong pulis kysa sa mga masasama. Wag nyong lahatin.
