Alarms and scandals

Pipila ka adlaw ang nakalabay, mibaniog sa social media ang giingong pagpangkidnap og mga batan-on sa usa ka puti nga van. Ang nag-post sa nag-viral sa Facebook na-trace nga didto nagpuyo sa Danao City, ug gidakop na og gipasakahan og kasong Alarms and Scandal in relation to Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2012.

Ang Section 6 sa Republic Act No. 10175 kun Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2012 nagkanayon: All crimes defined and penalized by the Revised Penal Code, as amended, and special laws, if committed by, through and with the use of information and communications technologies shall be covered by the relevant provisions of this Act: Provided, That the penalty to be imposed shall be one (1) degree higher than that provided for by the Revised Penal Code, as amended, and special laws, as the case may be.

Ang Article 155 sa Revised Penal Code nag-define sa krimen nga Alarms and Scandal:

The penalty of arresto menor or a fine not exceeding P200 pesos shall be imposed upon:

  1. Any person who within any town or public place, shall discharge any firearm, rocket, firecracker, or other explosives calculated to cause alarm or danger;
  2. Any person who shall instigate or take an active part in any charivari or other disorderly meeting offensive to another or prejudicial to public tranquility;
  3. Any person who, while wandering about at night or while engaged in any other nocturnal amusements, shall disturb the public peace; or
  4. Any person who, while intoxicated or otherwise, shall cause any disturbance or scandal in public places, provided that the circumstances of the case shall not make the provisions of Article 153 applicable.

Ang komon niini nga elemento mao ang “public space”. Kini man gong Alarm and Scandal nga krimen mahimo lamang diha sa usa ka “public space” kay ang katuyoan sa maong balaod mao ang pag-criminalize sa mga butang nga nakasamok sa kahapsay ug kalinaw nga wala ma-criminalize sa ubang porsyon sa Revised Penal Code.

Ning puntoha, naglibog ko og unsaon pag-characterize ang Facebook isip “public space.” Dako kaayo og kalainan ang Facebook kay sa physical public space kay sa Facebook, naa ra man gyod nimo kon makabasa ka sa post – kana kon duna kay friend o gi-follow nga mi-share niini. Sa public space, pananglitan naa ka merkado unya naay kagubot, wa man kay choice maapil man gyod ka sa kagubot.
