The recent killings in Eastern Visayas at the very start of the year is undoubtedly alarming. Unfortunately, news of such incidents seem to just be a passing story when victims would simply be added to the long list of people who died without justice.

Since many people hate to say it out loud, the seemingly culture of killing in Eastern Visayas is not only a violation of human rights but also a threat to the region's social and economic development. The loss of innocent lives has created a climate of fear and uncertainty, hindering the growth of businesses and discouraging foreign investment.

Moreover, the extrajudicial killings have disproportionately affected the poor and marginalized communities, perpetuating existing inequalities and exacerbating social tensions. This has led to a breakdown in trust between the government and its citizens, further eroding the foundations of democracy and governance.

Furthermore, the slow and often lactk of action from enforcers leads to families taking justice in their own hands, Hence, adding another ripple to the endless cycle of blood shed in the islands of Leyte and Samar.

It is imperative that the government recognizes the gravity of the situation and take immediate action to address these killings. It should also involve a commitment to transparency and accountability, with regular reports on the progress made in addressing the issue.

The people of Eastern Visayas deserve better than a culture of killings. It is time for the government to listen to their concerns, respect their rights, and work with them to build a more just and equitable society. Only then can we hope to create a brighter future for all.
