A UP Student killed a cat.

A UP student killed a cat and blogged it. He wrote on his blog how he felt when he slammed the cat like a pro wrestler. Though he didn’t perosnally see the cat die, he was still the one responsible for the cat’s death. So what’s eating our time on a topic like this if there are even missing people and unjustified deaths?

Simply, I sympathize with JC. I know he killed a cat and I think he deserves a reprimand from the responsible people. Killing a cat may serve as a start for his more barbaric doings, and it is dangerous breeding a person like him – tolerating his violence. But upon reading the post on multiply and some other blogs, I just can’t take that there are people who actually bash humans for animals.

I’m not saying that he does not deserve to be corrected, but his reputation and dignity are affected. In effect, his social and psychological being are also affected. The people may not be killing JC, but the excruciating words are almost enough to kill him.

JC slammed the cat, he didn’t see it die. The people bashed him, they do not have an idea how JC may react with those negative remarks.

First, if the purpose is to correct him, why would a person post his picture along with a blog on the internet? So the public may know and be more aware of the issue? I cannot accept this reasoning. The blog post asked the people to scrutinize him and tell him that he did something wrong. Bandwagon! This is too much just for a public information.

Second, why would you call him a psycho? I was his dormmate in Kalai, and as far as I am knowledgeable, he is not psycho in Philippine norm. Because he is enjoying cats’ deaths? That is his problem/character. I do not like cats, but I pay them respect because I believe in ecology. His satisfaction on killing cats is not enough to call him a psycho. So if you watch gore movies and you actually enjoy watching it, do I also have the right to call you a psycho?

Third, how can you actually want an 18-year-old Physics student to get kicked out of the school? He is young. He has many dreams. He has not yet spent the lime time of his life. He is studying in UP. This is sacrificing whatever is ahead of him for killing a cat. This is too much. As a support, he is taking Applied Physics. The country highly needs Physics-people and you’re rubbing him off the National Institute of Physics.

Lastly, how can you actually destroy a person? The “people” should have sued him first and let him learn his lesson. Are we equating the importance of cats to JC, a human? “No.” But it’s as if these people do.

Bottomline, kung may karapatan ang mga pusa, may karapatan din si JC bilang isang tao.

I do not like what JC did, but I value him as a member of the society. They used JC as an example of violence to animals, I am using the “people who underestimated the effect of their statements” as an example of VIOLENCE TO HUMANS.

    I agree with your post. I find the bashing and unnecessary comments too much. True, what he did is bad and should not be tolerated but I think that what people have done on-line are way below the belt. There are others who do the same cruelty to other animals, yet we do not condemn them because there are no witnesses and the animals are stray.

    My point is, I think JC learned his lesson and the bashing should just stop.

    Because people are impatient, and are naturally reactive without properly weighing the situation.
    At least the blog in yoopee has been deleted. I just hope we get updates once in a while, I’d like to know what happens.

    1. Because people are impatient, and are naturally reactive without properly weighing the situation.

      //good point.

    Recently ko lang lubos na naunawaan ang tungkol dito at sa tingin ko ay tama ka, parang nagoover- react na ung mga tao. Bakit ung mga involved sa ibang forms ng violence (tulad ng hazing), hindi pine-persecute nang ganyan? Hanggang ngayon, wala pang nangyayari sa case ni Cris Mendez di ba? Tapos si JC, dahil sa napatay niya ang isang pusa, gusto na nilang ipatanggal? I don’t understand the kind of reasoning they have. I also don’t like what JC did but I think kicking him out of NIP is too much. Kung ganyang line of reasoning ang parating susundin, madami nang tao ang kicked out sa mga colleges nila.

    1. I also don’t like what JC did but I think kicking him out of NIP is too much.

      //ito ang isa sa mga pinakamasakit ng pwedeng mangyari. it’s his future na e.

    Naiinis na tlaga ako sa pathetic/stupid reactions ng ibang tao. Buti na lang at may taong tulad mo that knows how to look at both sides at hindi pinapairal ang emosyon lang.

    True, he deserves to be corrected, he needs to be counseled not punished or imprisoned. Kawawa naman sya, he may be scared for his life already, trauma. People bash him and become too emotional to the point that its becoming pathetic. Calling him bobo, psycho and the like. Saying that cats are cute so we should no kill them. How absurd.

    1. pathetic/stupid reactions ng ibang tao.

      //siguro dahil medyo bandwagon-y ang pagkakasabi pero good thing you also saw the other side of the story. 🙂

  5. Rommel says:

    Yun lang. They need to stop and spare him na lang. This has costed his college life na and maybe his entire life. That alone is enough.

    1. oo nga. sana ma-stop na.

    excuse me?

    “kung may karapatan ang mga pusa, may karapatan din si JC bilang isang tao.”

    para sabihin ko sa’yo hindi karapatn ng tao ang pumatay..

    at hindi ng isang pusa. at isang pusang walang kalaban-laban.

    yes, naiintindihan ko may nagyayari din kay JC na hindi natin alam while he’s doing that. pero maski san at pano mo tingnan ang litrato, pumaty ka ng pusa. at hindi yon usapin ng kung estudyante ka ng UP o fishball vendor o tricycle driver, isyu yon ng pagpatay…

    kelangan ni JC ng tulong. but he also needs to understand na me “kung me karapatan sya. me karapatan din ang mga pusa!”

    1. thank you for the comment eksenadora.

      I won’t argue with this na lang. Kindly re-read the post. Thank you!

    Hindi mo rin naman masisi ang mga tao na magreact ng ganoon sa sinulat at ginawa nya.

    Siguro naman bibigyan sya ng time na magexplain o kaya psychological therapy.Animal Law na kasi ang sumakop sa issue na yan.

    1. “Hindi mo rin naman masisi ang mga tao na magreact ng ganoon sa sinulat at ginawa nya.”

      Sorry but I disagree. I completely disagree.

        hi revee. masyado lang akong sinasapian ng katangahn kagbi, ini-scan ko lang kasi..

        got your point..

        sobrang laki lang din kasi ng pagmamahal ko sa mga pusa.. siguro masyado lang din akong nasaktan.

        pinosisyon ko rin syempre yung sarili ko kay JC, at sobra pa sa ginawa ng tao sa kanya, hindi naman din makatarungan na masira yung future nya.

        hindi lang naman sya natatapos dahil don e. sana naiisip ng tao na JC needs help. at kailangan syang tulungan.

    @Eksenadora:

    I bet now he knows that. So, is it really worth it? Wala namang sinasabi dito kung estudyante man siya ng UP or whatnot. Don’t tell us that ’cause you’re going anti-UP with your statement.

    The thing is, this has costed him his college life. Now, he’ll drop out from a school he had dream of graduating from, will be judged by anyone he sees (who doesn’t understand him) as the cat killer. Isn’t that enough?

    Nasira na ang buhay niya. You also have to understand that yes, there’s a thing we call animal rights. Pero, wala nang magagawa, patay na ang pusa. Now, we have to save this guy, too. Spare him kasi meron rin tayong tinatawag na human rights and I say, hindi talaga makatarungan ang pambabalahura na ginawa sa kanya over the net.

    By cursing him and doing these stunts and not letting animal rights advocates to just do their jobs na lang, will this make you a better person than him? Think.

    @Zeus:

    I can blame them, for a simple fact na tao sila. Its their choice to respond; and by not responding maturely kaya they have to stop. ‘Yun lang, pabayaan na lang natin ang PAWS. ‘Wag natin siyang kutyain dahil it won’t make the situation better.

  9. eksenadora says:

    havent read of “pambabalahurang” ginawa sa kanya. 2nd, hindi ko iniimik yung opinyon ko para mambalahura ng tao.

    what im pointing is just ‘hindi karapatan yung pagpatay’

    ganon lang kasimple yon.

    naiintindihan ko “nabalahura” sya, and that’s too much para gawin sa isang taong tulad nya, pero sa totoo lang, hindi ko na isyu yon!

  10. ano ganon ganon lang !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    ang dami nga na niyang rinatay na pusa dapat patayin din ya ang kanyang sarili

  11. Binalik ko na ang comment ni rabiya tolentino.

  12. erica says:

    He deserves all the bashing and humiliation. What he did to that cat is unforgivable.

  13. erica says:

    “Are we equating the importance of cats to JC, a human? ” — well, from what he did, I don’t see why he can be called important. how can you call someone “human” after what he did to that creature? walang kalaban laban ang pusa tapos papatayin nya lang ng ganon? tanga pala sya e. bobo. bobo rin tong may ari ng blog na to. wag kang nagmamalinis at nagpapanggap na “philosophical”, walang kwenta mga pinagsasabi mo.

    “Because he is enjoying cats’ deaths? That is his problem/character.”

    Unfortunately this not only his problem. Today it could be a cat, who knows tomorrow it could be a kid on the street.

    “His satisfaction on killing cats is not enough to call him a psycho. So if you watch gore movies and you actually enjoy watching it, do I also have the right to call you a psycho?”

    It may not be enough but he sure does have some serious psychological issues. But yes, I know, bashing won’t help with that. But we know full well that we can’t stop people from expressing their thoughts on the matter.

    About the gore movies, well there are a lot of people who enjoy watching them, but you don’t see them kill people right? Because they know these are works of fiction. The satisfaction of watching and crossing the line to actually doing it and being proud of it are just on whole different levels. Seeing something suffer in TV/Movie is so much different than MAKING something suffer in real life.

    And oh yeah, he was proud of killing the cat. That there is something pretty sick (crazy even).

    “Third, how can you actually want an 18-year-old Physics student to get kicked out of the school? He is young. He has many dreams… etc.”

    An 18-year old should already have enough common sense in him to differentiate between right and wrong. He is already an adult. He should’ve thought well before doing what he did. Now in kicking him out, I understand why the school had to do it. It’s really a matter of saving face for them. They can’t be seen as a breeding ground for “cat killing psychos” if you get what I mean. People just won’t be satisfied with hime merely getting warnings from the school admin.

    “Lastly, how can you actually destroy a person? The “people” should have sued him first and let him learn his lesson.”

    He destroyed himself by doing something outside of the society’s morals. Yes I know, there are people who do crazier and more heinous things than this but the fact that he’s a university student, meaning he’s not within the part of the society most common to do crime, he then get’s highlighted.

    But really if JC got sued, do you honestly think that the results would be much different than this? He would get sued, then it would be publicized by the media, then everybody would know about him, then activists will request that the university do something about him, then it goes on and on. Bottom line, he’ll still be in the same hot seat as he is in right now. Or even worse. If he got sued and proven guilty he’d have a criminal record and that would make it difficult for him later on.

    Someone who does illegal things out of a whim, much less killing animals/humans out of “trip” just doesn’t hold enough value in the society for me. Sure he’s a physics student blah blah blah but that doesn’t change the fact that he likes killing things for kicks. That’s the issue here.

    revee sana hindi mo nadelete, hindi ko pa yun nabasa..haha..ohkay tatawa na lang muna ako..i respect each person’s freedom of speech…but you’ll have to respect mine too..yes JC did wrong, i totally agree, pero i totally disagree with some of the people’s responses to his action..kinakampihan ko si revee, hindi dahil friends kami, pero kinakampihan ko siya dahil pareho ang point namin. hindi mo pwedeng sabihin bobo siya, taga UP siya, at opinion niya ito. ikaw siguro ang bobo para sabihan ang ibang tao ng mga ganyan. kinakampihan ko rin si JC not because dormmate ko siya before, but because he is bashed too much already. hindi lang ang cat ang pinatay, parang pinapatay na rin si JC with all the comments people have to say.some are just so immature, or stupid (if i must say). give it a rest already, JC is undergoing too much punishment from all the humiliation he is getting.

  16. Rommel says:

    Kampi din ako kay revee. I said my piece. Its more of seeing this thing in all perspectives. Wag makasarili.

    Hindi naman kami umaayon sa ginawang act ni JC pero the way people treat him, its too much.

  17. tony says:

    mamalasin yan gago na yan…. tingnan nyu kung ano mangyayari sa buhay nya pakatapos sa pagpatay nya sa pusa… tarantado ka…….

  18. tony says:

    tarantado ka taga UP ka pa naman,,,,, sira ulo, simula na yan ng pagkaletseletse ng buhay mo gago

  19. tony says:
