It's interesting na there's little outrage coming from the Mainstream Media and other civil society groups re the illegal raid conducted by ISAFP at CIDG sa bahay ni Segundo Tabayoyong para agawin ang ERs at iba pang dokumento na pagma-mayari ng opposition.
Of course, nagalit ang opposition sa "martial law" tactics na ginamit ng mga police thugs ni Arroyo, but aside from Sen. Drilon and one or two columnists from the mainstream media, wala! pffft! Either tahimik lang ang mga pro-Arroyo media people at civil society re this (dahil nahihiya sila sa katarantaduhan ng arroyo admin) or they're not really that upset or outraged. So where's Joker "Ubusin ang mga corrupt" Arroyo reaction to this? Where's Teddyboy Locsin's?
Instead, they take their cues from the Adminstration and focus instead on smearing Tabayoyong and questioning his qualifications. Or they would parrot Malacanang's line na peke at "manufactured" raw ang ERs na hawak ni Tabayoyong.
Then, there's Connie Veneracion, whose main concern re the "great raid" was that any evidence (of "ER tampering" and "phony documents" done by the evil opposition) found in Tabayoyong's residence cannot be used against the opposition because the raid was conducted without a warrant, therefore the evidence found there is "inadmissible".
Then she tries to suggest similarities between the tabayoyong raid and the "illegally wiretapped" Garci tapes... na parehong "inadmissible" raw yung ebidensiya sa dalawang kaso.
Pero hindi pwede eh, kasi yung wiretapped tapes is re evidence on Arroyo and Garci trying to rig the presidential elections. Yung sa Tabayoyong case naman, ninakaw ng administration ang mga ERs at iba pang dokumento kay Tabayoyong, para malaman ng mga tuta ni GMA kung anong ebidensiya ang hawak ng opposition.
Anyways, it doesn't matter kung "walang qualifications" si tabayoyong, like what the admin claims -- mali pa rin ang ginawang raid ng ISAFP at CIDG, dahil si loren legarda mismo ang nagpa-tago ng mga ERs na yan sa bahay ni Tabayoyong.
At kahit na "peke" ang documents, hindi pa rin justification yan para gumawa ng warrantless search. At hindi ba mas politically smart kung hintayin na lang ng admin na ilabas ng opposition ang "pekeng" documents bago nila i-expose ang "forged documents" na yan.
Pero hindi eh, dahil legit talaga yung kopya ng opposition and the police and ISAFP has no right breaking into tabayoyong's room to steal the documents.
