Alleged crime by a Filipino illegal alien

Last week, the nation was shaken with the discovery of a “chopped” body of a girl inside a luggage. The body is that of one of the two girls missing since December. The suspect, a Korean man in his late 30s, was caught last Friday night. Obviously, the country is angry for this heinous crime.

Also last week, news articles came out about a middle school student in Yangju (Gyeonggi province) who was stabbed and killed by a Filipino illegal alien. Both the victim and the suspect lived in the same area. Apparently, the man learned that the girl was left home alone by her parents. He threatened the girl with a knife and forced her out of the house. She fought and was stabbed. Some reports say that she was raped but in one article, it was said that there is no physical that she’d been molested.

I remember that after Christopher Paul Neil was charged with child molestation, the Korean government decided to implement tougher rules for prospective English teachers in Korea. I wonder how this news is going to affect the Filipinos illegally staying in Korea. There should be no excuse for being an illegal alien, but most of them are honest and hard-working. As for the suspect, whose name has not been revealed, he should be punished if found guilty. In my book, there is nothing worse than a crime committed against a child.

    this might come out wrong but in my own opinion, illegal aliens should be pulled out since its not really fair for those who spent the time to process the papers to stay in a country legally.

    Wow, just crazy.

    I hate how so few represent the majority, when they are the exception to this rule. Like illegal aliens, most of them have a dream and are working hard to achieve it. Now here comes one person who kills and makes laws harder and tougher for everyone.

    It’s a shame: I’ve noticed illegal aliens appreciate their choice of country more than those of us who are here naturally.

    @jiyeon – like they say, there are two sides to a story… i just hope he’ll get a fair trial… after all, he’s supposed to be innocent until proven guilty (but that just doesn’t work in Asia!)…

    @AzureWolf – fortunately (?) the korean populace doesn’t seem to be interested in this story and it’s because of the more gruesome crime done by the guy who killed and mutilated two girls

    @marycar – whether he’s a Filipino or not, criminals should pay their dues… but you’re right, this is korea… people think differently here

    @Rmjonah – i have the same opinion but i’ve met some illegal aliens here and i truly pity their plights

    there are also a lot of illegally staying Koreans here in the Philippines. if that happened here (a Korean killing a Filipino) of course he’ll also be put to jail and given a trial.. the race doesn’t even count. it’s just a criminal vs victim. whether there are other circumstances surrounding the crime like what jiyeon said then i’m sure the court will find about it. hopefully they’ll make a fair assessment. btw, the possibility of the girl throwing stuffs and picking a fight against the Filipino is not that far-fetched. Koreans do not exactly have a good reputation here in the Philippines. In fact, i think they’re the only “foreigners” that Filipinos have a growing resentment for, unfortunately.
