Why Are People Still Supporing Senator Bong Revilla?

Senator Bong Revilla turned himself in at the Sandiganbayan on Friday amid shrieking fans and supporters. He was waving and smiling to his fans like it was a movie premiere.

Why do Filipinos do this? Is it because he's a movie star? Shouldn't the people be cursing him and spitting at him for ruining their lives?

As long as we keep worshiping these people, the citizen will always be treated as second class citizens to these politicians.

We never learn.
