Published on: Nov 27, 2012 - 12:44pm reports that "a closed-circuit television (CCTV) camera recorded the mauling and stabbing of a member of the US Mission to the Philippines by four men in Makati last Friday, November 24." The report explained: "The CCTV footage from the corner of Rockwell Drive and Kalayaan Avenue in Bel-Air, Makati City at around 4 a.m. Saturday shows the victim, George Anikow, walking home to Bel-Air Subdivision. He asked the guard how he could get in. The guard answered that the gate is always closed between 1 a.m. and 5 a.m. A Volvo car then arrived with four men on board. The guard asked where they were going and checked their IDs."


The report added that since the men appeared to be belligerent, Anikow made the move to help out the security guard. According to the guard, he had told the four men: "You need to present your ID. The guard is asking for it." The report noted: "It drew the ire of the 4 men, who got off the vehicle. A confrontation then ensued and escalated into a mauling. Anikow managed to run nearly 10 meters, but the suspects caught up, continued the beating and stabbed him. The four men then walked away and threatened the guard not to take down the license plate number of their vehicle."


The report said: "However, the four men were not aware that security officers were already alerted. They set up a steel barrier at the corner of Rockwell Drive and Estrella to prevent the suspects from fleeing. Rockwell Security and police then cornered the 4 suspects identified as Juan Alfonso Abastillas, Crispin dela Paz, Galicano Datu III, and Osric Cabrera."

    I don't care whether these men were rich or poor, or thieves at that. It's just plain uncivilized and barbaric! Even thieves have rules of conduct! I agree with So Sad. Is this what Filipinos - our people, our society have become? We can't hold a normal conversation/argument anymore? It's all about stabbing the sh*t out of someone or shooting someone's head off????? I'm sorry but if you can't stand up to someone verbally in a fight or in an argument (even if you're the one in the wrong) and have to resort to a gun or a knife to redeem yourself - it only means one thing: Wala kang bayag or Maikli ang bayag mo! Idadaan mo pagkalalaki mo sa baril o kutsilyo???? Shame on you and shame on these men! I hope they go to jail and get raped in the ass! I pity and really pray for the innocent CIVILIZED victim, who was just trying to do the proper thing. And it's also a shame this is foreign national at that. Bad publicity again for PI!

    There's a term for it in the vernacular: Silakbo. It got the better of those men, perps and vic alike.

    Doing what is morally upright is never wrong. Those 4 guys were wrong to treat a trivial situation as such. Is this what we filipinos have become? "how dare someone tap my window, let me teach him a lesson"...tsk tsk tsk

    It's tragic and gruesome, but sometimes you need to mind your own business and not be so morally upright, outspoken and idealistic, as most Americans tend to be.

      its called trying to make a difference. richboys didnt respect the need to go through security check. the poor guy tried to make things right and he gets savagely murdered for it.

      makes me wonder what your feelings would be if your wife is raped in the street with onlookers doing nothing.

      think about it for a moment. f*ck it,t*ng *n* sana marape at masaksak nga asawa mo at walang tumulong sa kanya!

    See where "tapping" another man's car in the Philippines can get you? These four made Carabuena look like a saint! Hehe
