Boyet Fajardo: The Scandalous Flipside
March 24, 2009 § 22 Comments
Before I join those people who want to crucify Boyet Fajardo for his alleged anomalous or scandalous acts against two Duty-Free employees, just like before, I want to weigh all the pieces of evidence before I jump into conclusions.
Let me first ask if there was indeed, a crime committed by this Boyet Fajardo. From what I read in the blogs and what I saw on television, Boyet Fajardo may have offended the feelings of these two poor persons. Indeed, he might have burst into what the spokesperson called “creative outbursts” because he was tired and harassed.
However, he might be exonerated from this by invoking what in law is termed “justifying circumstance”. Boyet Fajardo might have felt harassed too by the two employees of Duty-Free Philippines.
Consider this—according to the report of Sandra Aguinaldo of GMA Channel 7, Boyet Fajardo managed to buy three items using the same credit card in other counters prior to the incident. Based on that report, the cashiers of the earlier counters accepted his identification cards and his purchases.
When the cashier saw that Boyet Fajardo is a physically disabled guy, the video saw them nudging each other. Then, that incident happened. IT was only in that Cashier/Counter No. 5 that Boyet Fajardo was not allowed to purchase anything at all just because of his disability.
My dear readers,
Tell me if I’m wrong or not—could you tell me of any instance where anyone, just anyone, did not blow his top when a person judge him for his disability?
Will anyone please stand up and confidently tell me that there’s no instance where you actually did not lose your temper?
As Jesus Christ said, ” those who have no sin, let him cast the first stone.”
There was also a violation of Boyet Fajardo’s rights as a person. That’s the scandalous flipside.
