    Nicole,

    It would have been a better birthday for you without this incident. I wish that this will make you a stronger person. I wish you good health and blessings. I wish you luck and hope that true justice will be given to you. Again, Happy Birthday.

    Barog ‘Nicole’! Daghan pa gihapon ang nagpabiling mitoo sa imong baruganan og pakigbisog.

    It’s been a rough ride for you and for those who support you, nevertheless, it is always believed that when one hits bottom, there is no other way but up.

    Isn’t it quite a feat to realize that, after all, you are one of the handful who remain steadfast against the manipulations of the current administration?

    Ganun kayo katibay!

    Ah ok. kaya pala di mo maintindihan ang ipinaglalaban ni ‘Nicole’.

    Maggie, may mga babae pa ring hindi umaasa sa pera ng iba upang mamuhay ng matiwasay at maipaglaban ang sarili sa harap ng mga mapagsamantala. Katarungan ang ipinaglalaban ni ‘Nicole’ hindi pera dahil hindi kayang bayaran ang trauma at pait na sinapit niya at ng kanyang pamilya

    Di rin niya kailangan ang swerte dahil maraming mamayan ang naniniwala at tumutulong kay Nicole upang maisulong ang kanyang demanda. at kailanman di niya kailangan ang pera mula sa mga akusado para lang masabing tunay siyang wagi sa kasong ito.

    Ano ba naman kayo? Kayo ang nagpapagulo ng sitwasyon ng kaso ni nicole. Naghahanap kayo ng mga taong susuporta kay nicole sa pamamagitan nitong blog na to. Kaya lang mas ,mas marami yata ang mga against. Hindi kay Nicole, kundi sa mga taong nagtatanim ng sama ng loob at galit sa puso ni Nicole. Kayo ang nagpapagulo sa Pilipinas at lipunan. Puro kayo laban, puro galit na lng ang pinapairal ninyo sa puso nyo. Kung kayo ay may konsensya, dapat marunong kayong magpatawad. Yan ang ituro nyo kay nicole. Paano yan?, mukhang matatalo kayo sa kaso, ano na naman ang gagawin nyo jan sa Pinas, sigurado, gulo na naman ang gagawin nyo na wala namang mapupuntahan. Buksan nyo kaya ang mga mata nyo, wag kayong magbulag- bulagan sa nangyayari sa lipunan. Buti nga may pumapansin dito sa ginawa nyong site para kay nicole, kaya lng mas marami nga ang kontra. Kung meron man kayong nahahakot na sumusuporta, yun ang mga taong may mga galit sa gobyerno at sa puso nila. Walang patawad. Walang konsensya. Nagsisimba ba kayo? Magsimba naman kayo, baka-sakaling mabawasan ang galit sa puso nyo.Okey! I love you All! I love my country Philippines, Mabuhay!

    Ang importante dito sa blog na ‘to lahat ng panig nagbabasa.

    That’s an achievement enough!

    Siguro maggie, mas maigi siguro kung itanong mo mga sumusunod sa sarili.

    1. Ano kaya ang katayuan at paninindigan mo sa buhay kung di ka pinatulan ng isang US marine?

    2. Ano pa ang silbi ng batas ng lipunan kung di magkakaroon ng pagdinig sa demanda at paggawad ng parusa sa mga nagkasala?

    3. Ano nga ba ang ibig sabahin ng pagpapatawad? At ano nga ba ang laman at context ng pagpapatawad ayon sa bibliya?

    4. IIlan nga lang ba ang kaso ng rape ang nananalo dito sa Pilipinas at kailangang ipaglaban ang bawat krimen ng panggahasa o pananakit sa kapwa ng mga kababaihan?

    5. Ano kaya ang mararamdaman mo kung sakaling ang isa sa mga anak mo lalaki man o babae ay magahasa? Kung mas nanaisin mong manahimik, maaatim kaya ng konsensiya mong basta na lang pagmasdan ang hirap at pagdurusa ng anak mo?

    September 25, 2006 at 11:35 pm

    Melba, thanks sa payo mo. Pero believe it or not, no skin off my nose. Ikaw naman, huwag mong idamay ang sankalibutan. Let the case be between nicole and the accused. Parang disperado dating ninyo. Lahat gusto ninyong idamay.

    Ito ang hindi mapagkakaila: kung hindi naglandi si nicole, walang gulo!

  18. Arnold said,

    September 25, 2006 at 11:37 pm

    dioseffe, o ano nasaan na rules na sinasabi mo? Ikaw ang mainit eh. Puro name calling. Just goes to show how much you know.

    Di ka puwedeng maka diskusyon kasi hangang mura lang kaya mo.

    know what arnold, kahit hindi sabihin sayo yun dapat alam mo yun. u engage on a discussion, and that’s SOP. know what, hindi ako ang hot. nakangiti pa nga ako habang tinatype ko to oh.=D

    maggie, forgiving? walang problema dun. ibang usapin nga lang ang justice. madali talagang magpatawad. anybody can do that. pero hindi yun ang usapin. kailangan nung tao ng justice bakit natin ipagkakait sa kanya yun.

  21. Arnold said,

    September 26, 2006 at 6:52 pm

    dioseffe and melba, it could be that both of you are of the same mold as nicole. Happily, you do not represent filipina womanhood. There is no point in discussing issues with people with closed minds.

    This blog is nothing but a hate blog. I hope that you find the error of your ways.

    How do we create a culture of peace in the midst of unkind, violent actions?

    How can we clarify perspectives and propose addressing the issue of rape and other forms of violence against women when some individuals and groups do not even know what it means to be civil ?

    Regardless of what “camp” you are in, its best to settle conflict through peaceful channels ( like the opportunity of exchanges in this blog).
    Should violence be a last resort ( name calling, rude comments, verbal abuse, etc are also forms of violence! )?

    In war, when the unfortunate occasion that violence is employed as the last resort, camps usually submit themselves to established rules of engagement.

    So maybe it might be a good idea for people in this forum to outline these rules themselves to facilitate a better flow of exchange of views,beliefs, opinions, attitudes, information.

  23. melba said,

    September 26, 2006 at 10:58 pm

    I believe this is where prompt instructions and moderating comes in to avoid getting the discussions out of hand.

    Nicole’s issue is primarily an emotional one. With a free forum such as this and with people coming from different backgrounds venting their opinions, it can be expected that certain amount of emotions, becoming and not, will be expressed.

    It is just rather unfortunate that we need to resort to less than favorable exchanges if only to get the message across and address concerns and issues. This somehow mirrored the reality of Nicole’s case as seen on TV (the walk-out, and the invectives thrown by Delos Santos) and of course, the administration’s stubbornness to heed Nicole’s plea.

    Thanks Roselle and may we all be guided in the spirit of truth, patriotism and advocacy

    she went out with those men and she totally knew what she’s going into..she knew the risks and maybe she’s a self employed prostitute. who in the world goes put with men after a nightout and do not expect things could happen. And the fact that she was drunk that night..it is definitely impossible not to know some things that happened that night. why are you going out with 4 men and you definitely know they are looking for a good time in bed or in the “van” that is. People are sick and tired of this issue getting big. Seriously this is one big bullshit. America will not give a shit about those four men..nicole..you are not going to get any money. You are putting all filipino woman in shame

    A word of advice for anyone who wants to make comments here: Please know all the facts of Nicole case before making any comments so that you won’t irrate the readers here. We can pursue the truth about Nicole’s case if we educate ourselves by the reading the background about her case and with porper knowledge and background, then we can collectively put our ideas on the table to pursue the truth behind this case. For the history archives of the Subic Rape Case, I would suggest to visit the following:

    These two web sites will give the history of the case from June 2006 up to the present.

Sila lang ang tunay na nakakaalam ng pangyayari, nasa kanila na yon kung nagsisinungaling sila o hindi to win their fight. Isama na rin dyan yung Driver ng Van.

    Ladies and Gentlemen, following is a news flash from:

    The Daily Tribune dated 9/28/226

    Bolante’s high-priced lawyers, Azulay, Horn and Seiden law office in Chicago, Illinois, quickly submitted a new motion for leave to supplement exhibits in support of the petition for habeas corpus, where the lawyers claimed that Bolante is “likely being used as a political pawn in exchange for the release of certain American citizens being held to account for an alleged rape in the Philippines,” with Bolante seeking to file news articles demonstrating that he is being used as a political weapon to further demonstrate that the conflicting reasons provided to Bolante can only be a pretense and that the visa was improperly revoked.

    The news clippings, taken from Philippine newspaper accounts, consist of the reports quoting the mother of the alleged rape victim, “Nicole,” who claims to have been raped by an American servicemen with three others cheering him, narrating to reporters that Philippine government prosecutors had asked them to drop the case against the American servicemen because Manila is closing a deal with the US government on Bolante regarding a (blank portion, suspect that the info is intentionally ommited)

    with the US government.

    A Department of Foreign Affairs official yesterday told the Tribune that the Arroyo government and the US government were engaged in back-channel negotiations for a possible tradeoff deal on the case involving Bolante and the four US servicemen charged of raping a 22-year-old Filipino woman in Subic, Olongapo City.

    Speaking on condition of anonymity, the official confirmed that Manila and Washington had been conducting talks on the issue since August.

    “There were informal talks but we have no information if it is a done deal already,” the source said.

    The US Embassy in Manila denied the allegations, saying there is no connection between the two cases.

    “These cases are completely different,” US Ambassador to the Philippines Kristie Anne Kenney said.

    At a press conference yesterday, lawyer Harry Roque, who has submitted an amicus brief detailing the fertilizer fund scam said the very lawyers of Bolante in the US have confirmed that a deal may have been reached between the US and the Philippine governments that may affect the outcome of both the Subic rape case and that of Bolante proceedings.

    Roque said that while he himself was not certain about the supposed deal entered into by the Arroyo government with the US, this is something that could not be ignored.

    “In my opinion, this is not sufficient to conclude that there is indeed such a thing. On the other hand, the allegations are bothersome,” Roque said during the press conference at the UP Law center.

    He said the allegations of Bolante’s lawyer were based on newspaper reports detailing the claim made by Nicole’s mother about the alleged deal which was allegedly initially relayed to the latter by the Senior State Prosecutor handling the Subic rape case.

    “If that which was said by Nicole’s mother about the alleged deal was not published, we would not worry. Bolante’s lawyer gave credence to the claims made by Nicole’s mother,” he said.
    Roque however added that aside from newspaper reports, Bolante’s lawyers do not appear to have any other evidence that would back their claims that the US government did strike a deal with the Philippine government.

    Roque, who is pushing the immediate deportation of Bolante, also challenged the American authorities to prove that no such deal has been agreed upon by allowing the deportation proceedings of Bolante to be made open to the public.

    “There are more reasons now for the proceedings to be made public. I ask US ambassador Kenney and US Justice Attache Jeff Cole to expedite the deportation of Bolante to the Philippines. It was after all, upon their recommendation that Bolante’s visa was revoked, and they should make representations to the Immigration Court judge, an employee of the Department of Justice, that his order for closed door proceedings should be reversed. Precisely because of allegations about the existence of this alleged deal, secrecy in the Bolante proceedings would certainly breed further suspicions,” Roque said.

    “The ball is in the American court to disprove the allegation and they can disprove this by immediately sending Bolante home,” the lawyer added.

  31. Alitaptap said,

    September 27, 2006 at 8:21 pm

    Please make note that the Bolante case has a closed door proceedings and what Lawyer Harry Roque is asking is to reverse the closed door proceedings in order to avoid further suspicions on the alleged deal.

    Correction of the news date is 9/28/2006 and not 9/28/226 (forgive me for my typo error)

    its all bout the money, its all bout the dum dum dubidum dum. Nicole is definitely getting richer and richer, day by day. One of these days you’ll see her, went under the knife for rhinoplasty.. which she really needs, and oh yeah maybe some mild bleaching of the skin so that no one will notice it too much. How about the new ipod nano reinvented, that would be cool for christmas! OR MAYBE A U.S GREENCARD! that would be awesome!!

I, myself agree with some points of view of…..let me see the name of that person…oh yeah of “nicole is one big lie”…she/he made sense about that statement.

    You would be surprise to find out that in most cases where rape is concerned, despite court orders the convicted perpetrator/s do not usually pay the victim.

    The most important objective of the advocacy is the healing of the victim and education of the greater population on the pervasive existence of violence against women.

    Any abused person must be assisted in accepting and confronting the reality of the abuse committed against his/her person. Legal, medical, social and psychological remedies are invoked/rendered to help the victim (significant others included) come to terms with her traumatic experience and her abusers.

    If money is the sole reason for coming out by the victim. This alone is an erroneous assumption. Court battles are not only expensive but also very stressful and agonizing for the victim, her family and the other people involved. It is a necessary step in order to confront the issue, to allow an avenue for fair trial and hopefully convict the perpertrators.

    But if conviction is not possible, which is usually the case in this country, it is hoped that through the process of seeking for justice, the victim has not only come to terms with her trauma from rape but has also eventually achieve healing including those who are equally affected by the whole experience like her family and significant others

    I hope the rebuttal would push through despite Delos Santos’ belief that it is not necessary.

    This refusal of Delos Santos once again poses her high-handedness and arrogance towards the complainant. Until when will she reign supreme over a case that actually needs more heart, wisdom and wit than she cares to admit.

    More than anything, this case is Nicole’s. Whatever Gonzales’ and Delos Santos’ reasons for insisting on what they want, they are certainly making their intentions more obvious that they don’t really care about the victim but their on display of power.

    Just recently, the Sandiganbayan aquitted Imelda Marcos over a decade-old graft case. The Ombudsman, meanwhile absolved everyone involved in the anomalous Mega Pacific contract. All these despite strong and obvious evidences against them.

    These are all appalling developments in the justice system of our country. I can only surmise that with the DOJ’s and Delos Santos’ ‘maneuvering’ of Nicole’s case, it is feared that the accused Marines will also be acquitted. Must we be surprised?

    Well, there is still a glimmer of hope and trust in Judge Pozon’s sensibility over the case.

  40. Alitaptap said,

    October 6, 2006 at 2:01 pm

    About the case of Imelda and Lucio Tan, I am quoting from Earl Parreno, an analyst of the Institute of Political and Electoral Reform:
    “These decisions on the cases of Imelda Marcos and Lucio Tan show our judicial bodies are not independent”.

    I am afraid this is what is happening now with the case of Nicole. First, about the handling of LC Smith cross-examination and now, giving up the prosecutor’s chance for rebuttal of evidence. Even State Prosecutor Hazel Valdez was surprised about the last-minute decision to call off the scheduled hearing las Thursday, October 5th. So, what is happening? I guess only Justice Secretary Raul Gonzalez and Senior State Prosecutor Emilie de los Santos know what the game plan is. Let us just hope that justice will prevail in the hands of Judge Benjamin Pozon.

    Kababayan, sinusundan mo ba ang kaso ni ‘Nicole’, ang 22 taong gulang na ginahasa sa Subic?

    Ano ba ang kabuluhan nito sa atin?

    Sabi ng iba, “kung matino kasi yang babaeng yan, di siya dapat nasa bar at naglalasing”. Pabirong sabi naman ng ilan na sana sila na ang ginahasa at baka nalahian pa sila ng puti na asul ang mga mata.

    Kababayan, kelan pa ba naging tama ang panggagahasa? Kelan na ba naging ‘deserving’ ang isang babae na gahasain?

    Liban pa, unti-unti namang nalilinawan sa ating, hindi masamang tai si ‘Nicole’. Napunta sila sa Subic at sa bar na iyon sa imbitasyon ng isang kaibigan ng pamilya.

    At kung si ‘Nicole’ ay nagtatrabaho nga sa bar, pababayaan natin siya dahil hinusgahan natin siya sa pagpasok sa ganoong trabaho? Pag ganyan, parang inilibing natin ng buhay ang dati nang sadlak sa kahirapan. Noong panahong di pa napapaalis ang mga base, marami na ang naiulat na kaso ng pang-aabusong sekswal ng mga sundalong US sa mga Pilipina.

    Nakakarating sa Pulis ang kaso, pero walang umabante para malitis sa korte, ipinalagay na ang lahat ay bahagi ng pagpuputa ng mga Pilipina. Tuloy, bago nauso ang larawan ng mga Pilipina sa abroad bilang domestic worker, “puta” ang dominanteng larawan ng Pilipina.

    Suportahan natin si ‘Nicole’. Nangahas siyang lumaban kahit napakalakas ng kalaban, kahit grabe ang presyur na siya ay tumahimik na lamang. Pagkat ayaw niyang marami pang maging biktima ng panggagahasa. Pagkat ayaw niyang patuloy na tinatratong baboy ang Pilipino.

    Suportahan natin si ‘Nicole’. Huwag nating hayaang tuloy-tuloy na magamit ang yaman at kapangyarihan ng malakas na bansa para makaiwas sa akmang kaparusahan ang mga rapists.

    Tumulong tayo kay Nicole at tumulong tayong iukit ang bagong Kasaysayan ng bayang Pilipinas!

    Katarungan para kay ‘Nicole’!

    Katarungan para sa bansang Pilipinas!

Masyado nang maraming ginawang human rights violation ang mga kano hindi lang dito kundi maging sa ibang panig ng mundo. at para dun sa mga tao na bumabatikos ky nicole at nagsasabing…”kung matino syang babae, bakit sya nsa bar at naglalasing?”.

    We all know that alcohol does something with our ability to make proper judgment. For both parties and people involved,alcohol is involved all.All were drinking-therefore the guards were down and so’s the rational ability to make reasonable judgment at that moment.One knows-for sure-when one had “enough” to drink.So,a level headed person would STOP,right?Not until the point of “can not remember” things.By the way,when one is “drunk”,we all know what we are doing-we are just more courageous to do things.Basing on the info that had been put out,the victim contributed to this predicament,see?
    If you consume alcohol or whatever stimulant-be responsible for yourself.In scenarions like these,rape is alwaqy possible and if so,inevitable.But hey,for an “educated,responsible girl”-why go to a danger zone and cry foul? You play with fire,you get burned! Bo Hoooooooooo!!!!

    The accuser shouldn’t have taken advantage of the situation or he should’ve known his limits when it came to point of drunkeness and misjudgement. I’m sure he could’ve bought a girl who would’ve rocked his world for a couple of hours.

    This disgusts me. This “Nicole” put a condom on the guy – that’s rape? And also I read that she had worked as a bargirl (prostitute) in the Philippines, Japan and Korea.

    This was a set up for money from the very beginning and it got out of hand. The marine’s only mistake was that he dumped her off and she “lost face”.

    See what this does to US Tourism in the Phillippines! It will dry up, along with the money we spend. There is enough graft and corruption in the Philippines, and now every male tourist will worry about this. We can go elsewhere – keep your “WOW Philippines”. And we’ll keep our money. There are already moves in Congress to ELIMINATE US AID to the Philippines. I wish it was canceled tomorrow.

    My guess was right. It’s only Smith who got the sentence and the others were acquitted. I thought that it was a fair sentence because the other three had nothing to do with it. Maybe a little, but not enough to convict them.

    I was astounded because the sentence was for 40 years!!! I’m thinking that the Philippines will be Smith’s new homeland. And as for Nicole, I know she won’t be able to forgive him now, but I do hope that one day she’ll be able to forgive him. You know, because the guy can’t go anywhere but to be in prison. Both of them are young, that’s why I feel sorry for both of them that these things had to happen.

    I feel bad to Smith too because he’s only 21. I just hope that he’ll repent when he’s in prison. That’s most convicts do when they’re in prison. They just hang on to God.

    I know both Smith and Nicole would never ever forget about this event in their entire lives. I just hope that one day, they’ll be able to forgive one another. It might not come so soon, but I do hope after decades and decades, it will happen.

    (Oh by the way, my IP address is different from the others. hehehehe, just to let people know that i’m not one of those people who use just a single IP)

    hi! nicole
    sana mabuti ngayon ang iyong kalagayan at alam kong makaka move on ka rin dahil matapang ka. alam kong mahirap para sa isang tao ang magpatawad sa katulad mong sitwasyon, pero sana kahit ganito ang nangyari sayo manatili kang nagtitiwala sa Maykapal dahil siya ang bahalang pumukaw at magpatunaw ng bato sa iyong puso sanhi ng sobrang galit.
    ipagdadasal ko ang kalagayan mo at sana mapatawad mo sila dahil masarap ang magpatawad at walang galit na namumuo sa iyong puso.
    God Bless You! 🙂

    Hehehe if you love to kill American soldiers, why not try? Murder is more heinous than rape. I would love to see you making headlines Ricky, American soldier hater. Hehehe

    Even though a US marine raped an individual, it doesn’t mean that all marines/armies are rapists.

    If for example a Filipino soldier raped someone, will you accept people to say “I love to kill Filipino Soldiers…”?

    Don’t generalize, just aim for the individual/s who committed the crime.

    (I’m not defending Daniel Smith)

    It’s ok if you say “you’ll love to kill Daniel Smith and the other co-accused” =)

    If for example, you’re successful in killing American soldiers Ricky, you don’t want other folks around the world say “Filipinos are American soldiers’ murderers”, do you, although you’re the only one who killed them?! Hehehe see the logic of not generalizing?

    as a student of law, having taken criminal law 1 and 2 in which every criminal proceeding demands evidence which establishes guilt beyond reasonable doubt, i believe that guilt was established against smith as a principal by direct participation which is easy to prove having carnal knowledge with a woman can be solved my medical and scientific evidence. the guilt of the other three is more difficult to be proven because being a principal by indispensable cooperation demands objective and convincing evidence. in my own opinion, they should be held guilty as well but in law evidence is the most important. nicole should have filed also a civil action for damages based on articles 19-21 of the civil code of the philippines. even only one was convicted smith has to pay for the crime and im happy that justice still prevails in our country despite the slowness of the justice system.

    when you have sexual intercourse with someone who is so drunk, thereby vititaing the woman’s consent it falls under article 266-a in which rape may be committed when the person is deprived of reason or otherwise unconscious. they cant invoke consensual sex then.one more thing, if its consensual why did the soldiers leave nicole outside the van across the street like a trash is that what you call consensual? thats cruelty and ignominy in the highest level. just wanna ask if nicole has a boyfriend? who knows her personally? thanks…

    i think the result was not that good enough, like other guys out there who send their comment, i personally, happy that nicole was given justice for what had happened to her, and sad for the armerican who was convicted.parang ano yata hindi fair, kasi andaming lumalabas na si nicole ganito, bakit kasi minadali sa court i mean dapat na pag aralang mabuti ito, you know what sa mga filipino sa states, they dont believe that nicole was indeed rape, kasi alam na nila ang mga filipina sa nag pupunta sa subic,ako umiinom din ako as in lasing na lasing and when somebody touches me i get irritated, eh bakit sya, kahit sobrang lasing ka you know whats happening around you.yun nga lang they dump her na parang basura which really make they girl mad.for nicole pag pakatotoo ka lang sa sarili mo, kasi kung talagang you deserved justice sana walang kumontra syo. dapat lahat ng filipina was on your side, but what happened was they dont believe in you, remember the case of a child who was raped by her dad, she got justice na lahat ng filipino sang ayon na mabitay ang dad nya d ba? the point is dapat ba yung justice na nakamit mo, may tinatago ka ba, your no longer under age, why not come out in the open baka sakaling lahat eh maniwala na syo, i’ m a filipina pero i dont believe in you 100 percent, i pity you kasi umabot ka pa sa ganyan, i dont know what your into but i guess your not that happy na you got justice, and i think your aiming for something. i just wishes you got luck

    From the very first time that i heard about this case, my doubt is already there. Sa mga interview ni Nicole, sinasabi nya na bakit daw kailangan pang ungkatin kung ano ang nakaraan nya. Duon pa lang foul na sya. Nicole, kung tutuo kang biktima, bakit ka ka matatakot na ungkatin ang nakaraan mo. Bakit? May itinatago kaba? Ang isa pa, pwede ba huwag mo babanggitin ang pangalan ng Diyos, Demonyo ang nagpanalo ng kaso mo. Yan ang totoo. Matakot ka naman.

    i just think that the decision of the judge is not right i personally believe na walang rape na nangyari. how could it be rape kung kusang sumama ang NICOLE na yan kay SMITH??? di ba kung pinilit lang siya edi sana napansin na yun ng mga tao sa paligid ng bar. and nicole even said she was with her relatives so how come they let her go with smith if they knew that she was dead drunk??!! i feel really sorry for smith he’s too young too suffer in jail he has a lot of opportunities ahead of him and just because of NICOLE”s big lies his life is miserable. sana may gumawa ng site para kay smith let us show our support to him… di lahat ng pinoy “nabibili”…

    how fast all pilipinos forget how much the US Army, Marines do for them, in a Mud slide, in Floods, the first to arrive with help befor even pinoy Army..
    I dont prmote any one that rape, american or pilipino, and we all know how many cases are every day in the philippines. I only know what i read, I know a girl the dont want to be raped dont help with a cundom, i know a girl that so inccent dont have a past in Japan and Korea working in The nite clubs.
    I know why her real name and face is a mistery….and i know she is 23 not underage.
    I give her more sepport if she come out with her real name and face…doing that way…only asure me i was right..
    And finely,,,,i am glad that after he was convicted the defanse lawyers got nothing….i am sure they got a big suitcase ready…to bad.
    And to all the guys or girls that put all american in the same blam…shame on you, if not the USA you be now speak Japanese,,,remmber american gave their life in the Philippines for you freedom.
    Peace.
    Pogi
