Dumpers of men

“To hire fishermen instead of undertakers. The opposite of Christianity…. not to be fishers of men, but dumpers of men.”

This is the response of a writer friend (known online as Self Respect) to the news about local fishermen being hired by authorities to dump bodies of drug war victims as “trash” in Manila Bay.

When I first read about it (*), the fact that fishermen are involved seemed somehow macabrely poignant. After Self Respect’s comment, I understand why.
