"Magandang araw, Mindy! Nakakarindi nang marinig sa balita sa radyo o TV ang kabi-kabilang pagkahuli o pagpatay sa mga tulak o gumagamit ng ipinagbabawal na gamot. Kailan lamang ay nahuli pa ang isang sikat na aktor na may dala raw na isang kilo ng marijuana. Totoo bang maaari siyang makulong nang habambuhay? -Rap"

The Maguindanao Massacre refers to the election-related mass killing of at least 58 people on 23 November 2009. The victims, which included some of the clan's family members, as well as 32 journalists, lawyers and civilians were on their way to the town of Shariff Aguak to file a certificate of candidacy on behalf of Buluan, Maguindanao Vice Mayor Datu Ismail "Toto" Mangudadatu, who was running for governor in the province, when they were abducted and later killed by heavily armed men allegedly belonging to the Ampatuan Clan.
The Maguindanao Massacre is regarded by the Committee to Protect Journalists as the single deadliest attack against journalists in history. The date of the massacre, November 23, was recently declared as the International Day to End Impunity by the International Freedom of Expression Exchange.
