Firsts


Day 1.
November 5, 2010

I was accepted as an intern the day before, and actually, I was told to start right away. My afternoon classes though hindered me from doing that.

I received a call from June Perez telling me to proceed to the Talisay City Police Station to confirm if a former board member was indeed involved in a shooting incident.

The Talisay Police confirmed immediately by saying that there were actually four empty shells of a 45-caliber gun.

The former board member indicted was George Aznar of the First District of Cebu.

I started to fear for my own safety though when I learned from my father that the person involved in the incident was “notorious” for being dangerous. However, my thirst for pursuing this story grew as our news desk in-charge, June Perez, stated that a gun-toting incident happened, and that the police “did nothing” to resolve the case.

The next thing I did was to interview the police. They denied not having acted upon the incident, even if there was a legitimate complaint. The residents were actually near the police station, and to their surprise, the residents claimed that the police did not know the area.

Although I made new acquaintances around the area (because they knew I am from Talisay), I knew I would not be doing this beat forever. I was a “filler” because our reporter assigned to the Talisay City beat was not around.

This would be the signal for some more good things to come.
