3 killed as sports car slams into truck in Bacolod City

BACOLOD CITY – A businessman and his two companions succumbed to severe injuries when their Ford Mustang crashed into a 10-wheeler truck loaded with sugarcane along Circumferential Road in Barangay Villamonte here early Tuesday. Three persons were killed when a Ford Mustang hit a 10-wheeler truck loaded with sugarcane along Circumferential road in Barangay Villamonte, Bacolod City Tuesday. (Photo courtesy of Bacolod City Police Office / MANILA BULLETIN) Killed in the accident were businessman Stanley Flores, and his passengers Welton Porcel and Mark John Porcel, a nephew. They were all residents of Barangay Villamonte, according to the police. Police Station 4 Head Maj. Charles Gever said Flores was behind the wheel of the speeding Mustang, and was tailing the truck driven by Michael Mejica, 42, and of Kabankalan City, Negros Occidental, when the car crashed into the much larger vehicle. The car smashed into the truck’s rear end, and even went under it, pinning down Flores and his companions. Gever said the victims died instantly. The accident happened around 1 a.m. Gever said Mejica thought his tire exploded at the time of the crash. But when he went down the truck to check, he discovered the Mustang already pinned down under the vehicle. Gever said they could not yet tell what really caused the accident, as investigation was ongoing as of press time. He said Mejica was under police custody, and will be released from detention if no charges will be filed against him within the reglementary period......»»

Bills running back McCoy using his doubters as motivation

By John Wawrow, Associated Press PITTSFORD, N.Y. (AP) — Question LeSean McCoy all you want for having lost a step now that he's on the wrong side of 30 and coming off his least productive season. The Buffalo Bills running back says he won't hold it against anyone when proving them wrong. Insisting he's still "The Guy," McCoy ended an offseasonlong silence following the Bills' final training camp session Tuesday by saying he's heard all the doubts, and using them as motivation. "It's kind of weird. Since I've been like 9 years old, I've been the top guy so it's even weird to hear stuff like that. But I mean, it comes along with it," McCoy said. "I guess that's just how it is. I'm fine with that. I know who I am. I know how I play. And my teammates know that. So I mean, we'll see on Sundays," he added. "And the one thing I won't do, I won't even bring it up. So if somebody here says something about me, I won't bring it up to you. It'll be like I never heard it." McCoy, who has previously acknowledged not being thrilled to celebrate turning 31 last month, has plenty to prove entering his 11th season and fifth in Buffalo. After topping 1,100 yards rushing in 2016 and '17, McCoy's numbers plummeted last year. The NFL's 2013 rushing leader finished with 514 yards rushing and 752 yards from scrimmage — both career lows. Speculation of McCoy's status was further fueled this offseason, when the Bills restocked their backfield by signing Frank Gore and TJ Yeldon in free agency. And then Buffalo used a third-round draft pick to select Devin Singletary, whose shifty style drew comparisons to McCoy at Florida Atlantic. "It's no different. Just guys in the backfield to help me out," McCoy said of the added competition. "I'm the guy. I feel like that. That's what I've been told. And that's my every day approach." He then dismissed a question over the possibility of being traded before the season begins. "I've seen that. But for the last two years, people have been saying that," said McCoy, who is entering the final year of his contract. "If that was the case, I would've been gone." The Bills have publicly backed McCoy. General manager Brandon Beane opened training camp two weeks ago by reiterating comments he made after drafting Singletary. Asked about "the outside noise" of trade speculation, Beane said, "There's not any inside noise," and chalked it up to the media having nothing to report on while the team was off. "When Sean and Brian Daboll roll the ball out, LeSean's going to be the first running back to touch the ball," Beane added, referring to coach Sean McDermott and Buffalo's offensive coordinator. McDermott on Tuesday said he's liked how McCoy has handled the added competition. "I think he's off to a good start. His attitude's been great," McDermott said. "And I look forward to watching him continue to get himself ready to go for the season." McCoy has worked exclusively with the starting offense through camp, and has reeled off several impressive runs. The next step comes Thursday, when the Bills open the preseason by hosting Indianapolis. McCoy spoke with a calm, confident voice, and said he's learned his lesson from last year when he brashly shared his objective to reach the 12,000-yard plateau to solidify his place among the NFL's greats. He couldn't even break the 11,000-yard mark, and enters this season ranked 25th overall and third among active players with 10,606 yards rushing. "When you kind of focus on the numbers, the yards, you kind of don't get it where you want it," he said. "I think the first goal is just to make every rep, make every play count, work hard and win games, and the other stuff and stats, they'll follow." He's also aware of how mercurial the media and fans are when it comes to production. "You have a bad two games and then you have three hot ones, and you're the man," McCoy said. "No matter what goes one, they'll look for the guy with name or the money. So it kind of motivates me." Not all of Buffalo's running struggles could be pegged on McCoy. The Bills were introducing a rookie quarterback in Josh Allen, which led to opposing defenses focusing on stopping McCoy. Buffalo also featured a patchwork line after center Eric Wood and guard Richie Incognito unexpectedly retired. The Bills have retooled their line by adding seven newcomers, including rookie second-round draft pick Cody Ford. And they've upgraded their group of receivers, too, by signing Cole Beasley and John Brown in free agency. McCoy is impressed by the additions, and said Beasley and Brown will not only help the passing attack, but also open space for the running game. The addition of Gore was welcomed by McCoy, because they're close friends and spend the offseason working out in Florida. "I'm excited, knowing it's a challenge and everybody's talking about the backs and the new additions, but I'm challenging myself," McCoy said. "I look to be the best player every snap. So I take the challenge for myself.".....»»

Rights groups slam MMDA spox for ‘drama serye’ remark on detained activist

Human rights groups slammed Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA) Spokesperson Celine Pialago following her “drama serye” remarks at detained activist Reina Mae Nasino who recently buried her three-month-old daughter River.  Kapatid, a support group for families and friends of political prisoners, said those who downgrade what happened to the political prisoner are only trying to “cover the government’s gross violation of human rights.”  “The story of Reina Mae Nasino and her 3-month-old child who died last week is not ‘drama-serye.’ It is a real story that exposed the countless injustices committed by the government,” it said in a statement released on Sunday.  “MMDA Chair Danny Lim, a former political prisoner himself, should have long shown the door to his spokesperson. It should be obvious by now that sensitivity cannot be taught nor proper manners and right conduct if one is empty-headed,” it added. Meanwhile, National Union of People’s Lawyers (NUPL) President Edre Olalia was more restrained, saying they would “do the same thing if she was in Ina’s position and circumstance. “To start with, we will never ever wish this horrible tragedy and injustice to visit the Asec, her mother, her daughters, her sisters and her aunts,” he said in a Facebook post. Despite having nothing to do with traffic, Pialago felt the need to “use her voice as a Filipino” to share her two cents on Nasino’s case. “Hindi lahat ng inang nakakulong ay nakapunta sa libing ng kanyang anak. Kaya yung mga sumisimpatya kay Reina Mae Nasino, pag aralan niyo mabuti ang dahilan bakit siya nakulong at kilalanin niyong mabuti kung sino siya sa lipunan (Not all jailed mothers get to visit their children’s funeral. So all of those who sympathize with Reina Mae Nasino, study well why she was imprisoned and know who she is and what her role is in society),” she said in a Facebook post on Sunday morning. “Masyado ninyong ginagawang pang drama serye sa hapon ang paghihinagpis niya. Tigilan niyo (You are trying to make her grief like an afternoon drama serye. Stop it)!” she added. Nasino was five months pregnant with River when she was arrested in November 2019 for allegedly being found with firearms and explosives at the Bagong Alyansang Makabayan Manila Office in Tondo, Manila. Her lawyers have insisted that the pieces of evidence were planted and that the charges filed against her are trumped-up. She gave birth to River on July 1 at the Dr. Jose Fabella Memorial Medical Hospital on July 1. She and her baby were returned to the Manila City Jail 48 hours later. Before this, she filed a motion before the Manila Regional Trial Court (RTC) to allow her to breastfeed her daughter for a year at the hospital or a prison nursery.  But Manila RTC Branch 20 Judge Marivic Balisi-Umali denied this, saying that the jail has “very limited resources” for the care of her child.  Nasino was also among 22 elderly and medically-compromised detainees who filed a motion for their compassionate release amid the pandemic on April 8 before the Supreme Court. But months later, the High Court ruled that the trial courts will be the ones to decide on their temporary release. On August 13, the activist-mother was ordered to turn her child over to her relatives.  River was admitted at the Philippine General Hospital for fever and diarrhea on September 24. She was placed in the intensive care unit on October 9 where she died a few hours later.  A few hours before her daughter died, Nasino filed a very urgent motion for furlough so she can be with her child in her dying moments. On October 13, Manila RTC Branch 47 Judge Paulino Gallegos granted her three full days from October 14 to 16 to be by her daughter’s side during the wake and burial.  But the next day, he cut Nasino’ furlough down to only six hours from 1 to 4 p.m. on October 14 and 16 after receiving opposition from the Manila City Jail. The Manila City Jail cited lack of personnel, health concerns, and a guideline stating that detainees can only be at their loved ones’ burial and wake for a maximum of three hours. For both the wake and the funeral, Nasino was clad in a full set of personal protective equipment, handcuffed, and flanked by numerous uniformed personnel.  Tensions rose during the wake after her escorts tried to pull her away twice before her time was up, eventually escorting her out with 20 minutes to spare before 4 p.m. On October 16, Marites Asis, Nasino’s mother, had to kneel and beg in front of the police to allow them to hold funeral at 11:30 a.m. The cops wanted to delay it until 1 p.m. Police also sped off with River’s hearse to the Manila North Cemetery, leaving her family behind and thwarting activists’ plan to conduct a caravan around the Supreme Court and the Court of Appeals before burying her at the cemetery. Nasino’s counsels at NUPL earlier said that they will file charges against those involved in the activist’s treatment during her daughter’s wake and burial. .....»»
