The Laude case on Facebook

WHILE the preliminary investigation into the death of Jennifer Laude started only yesterday, October 21, in the Philippines, a separate virtual trial seems to have unfolded before the bar of public opinion on Facebook.

Four Facebook pages have already been upped after Laude was killed on Oct. 11 allegedly by a member of the United States Marine Corps, Private First Class Joseph Scott Pemberton.

These are the community page Jennifer Laude Sueselbeck,

Jennifer Laude Sueselbeck

Justice for Jennifer Laude,

Justice for Jennifer Laude

and the Jennifer Laude Movement,

Jennifer Laude Movement

and Support For Joseph Scott Pemberton.

Support for Pemberton

The Jennifer Laude Sueselbeck page has drawn 1,750 likes since it was launched last October 15. The Jennifer Laude Movement page has 51 likes since October 18, while the Justice for Jennifer Laude has 72 follows. It is also the page that has the most updates compared to the other two pages.

The page for Pemberton on the other hand, has 566 likes as of October 22. It is described by its creator as a page “for those people who care about the case between laude and pemberton..at the same time PH and U.S.A…”

Cases like this are the reason why sometimes m ashamed of being Filipino. Why support this Jennifer? He’s a cheater to her German fiancĂ©!!! His sister herself said it on an interview that this Jennifer was in that place bec he can trick Americans of his gender and he wanted an American. She don’t deserve this pitty and all this attention that people are giving him! As far as m concern his nothing but a piece of crop!!! Americans should back their soldier and screw this cheater Jennifer!!! Let’s not ruin our relationship with the usa just because of this Jennifer crop!!!

Thanks for commenting, Jogene. Question: is being a cheater a reason to get killed? I guess it’s also time to reflect on the relations between our country and the US. Here’s one article that I think could help deepen the discussion http://pcij.org/blog/2007/01/19/reviewing-rp-us-relations. Have a great day.
