She Fought The Law and The Law…

…didn’t win.

You may recall the post I wrote about how the law is often a “do it yourself” affair in the Philippines, especially for those with power (financial and/or political).  Generally, the law is exercised in favor of the powerful.

But every now and then, someone actually stands up for “the people.”  Check out this video of what the Mayor of the largest city in the southern Philippines did when squatters were being evicted.

  1. Holy S***! The video of the song is just hilarious. Imagine today having dancing girls with “six-guns”, even fake ones. Just wouldn’t happen. I did think it was a hilarious touch when they all fall down “dead” at the end of the song.

What say you?
