Declaring Martial Law in Mindanao is a drastic and dramatic move. The solution needed to suppress the Abu Sayyaf and the Maute groups may need a drastic and dramatic move. I don't have all the facts now but the President will have to explain his move to Congress and get our support. The President is from Mindanao and he has more information regarding the security than any of us. I will respect his judgment on the issue and give him the benefit of the doubt. I hope the AFP and the PNP will not abuse their authority on ordinary civilians.
