Real life good guy shoots movie bad guy

Actor Kirk Abella was shot Saturday while filming a mock documentary for a British director.

Not because his acting was bad or anything. If anything, his dedication to the craft is admirable. Abella, who was playing a goon on a motorbike, was shot for staying in character when confronted by a local watchman.

[Village watchman Edgardo] Cuizon, who was inside his house, was jolted awake by a neighbor who told him there were armed persons in the neighborhood.

He reportedly approached the motorcycle, held on to its rear and introduced himself as a barangay (village) enforcer.

When he saw the back rider, Abella, draw out a gun, he also pulled out an unlicensed .357 revolver. He shot Abella, hitting him in the back.

Cuizon, it was found, was not drunk or high on drugs. He was simply performing his civic duty of shooting suspicious masked men on sight.

Asked why Cuizon missed policemen assigned to watch over the film crew, local police chief Alexis Relado had this to say: “I think he was sleepy.”

  1. I do not get it at all. Either I am dense! Or, the report from so-called journalists are you-know! Aint misbehavin’.

    Lookit, from the perspective of a reader, like me, here are my questions so should the editors, publishers and impeccable speakers of english:

    1. If they were filming there has to be a gaggle of people right? Director, Grip, Dolley operator, lights, make-artists, and throng of looky-los. Right?
    2. Since there was only Abella and the gun-toter, where are the people who were supposed to be filming? Right?
    3. So, therefore, in the crime scene, there were only Abella and the gun-toter. Right?
    4. If there were a throng of people, there would be plenty of eyes to witness. Right?
    5. If there were people, they could have stopped the gun-totter. Right?
    6. If there were throng people with cameras and lights and so much action, the gun-totter would have stopped! Right?

    SOMETHING IS TOTALLY WRONG HERE. I suggest the Editor, journalists, copywriter and the whole bunch of stupid crews should go to crime scene and RE-ENACT THE WHOLE DRAMA TO CONVINCE MY SUSPICIOUS MIND. Never mind the rest of the Filipinos. THEY CAN BE TOTALLY SOLD OUT! But please mind me. I do not want my low-IQ mind to be insulted.

    PLEASE, LANG. HAVE RESPECT.

    Hesus, Maria, Josef! That is not a goot answer from a Police Chief. He is bettered off if he said “He was sleep shooting”!
