Come on Police, speak up

It is with tremendous sadness and an agonizing sense of profound loss that one reminiscences Bismarque, the classic Goan legend, now passed into history. 

Whether he was eliminated by powerful forces he valiantly stood up to (often alone), must be investigated relentlessly by the cops.

Though the forensic evidence in the public domain is not compelling to point out to murder, as yet the police must make public the names of all the builders, hoteliers and other soulless sharks who threatened Bismarque all these years.

This scum of the earth must be publicly shamed and hopefully boycotted completely at a social and financial level by all of us who profess to love Bismarque and Goa (hopefully).

Also, when sincere, dedicated and often penniless activists offer their services in the political field, as Bismarque did, it is hoped that the wise, passionate and weeping people of Goa would help them get elected to power.

When in power, all the evil forces raping Goa would be genuflecting before a Bismarque wanting to atone for their sins rather than plan how to bump them off.

By leaving many of these brave hearts exposed to the designs of evil forces without the basic and necessary armour of our vote is frankly so unfair. 

RIP our dear Bismarque. I have deliberately not called you Father, because you went much beyond the call of priestly duties.

You lived your conscience, not just listened to it. You loved mother earth, not just devoured it and importantly, you were simply human first and all else later.

We will always remember and admire you but will we really as Goans follow your teachings and life's lessons forever.

Our tributes however heartfelt will add up to nothing otherwise.

I saw one video of Bismark, where he says - good people don't contesting elections thinks that it is only for bad people and that is what the bad politicians want. I believe good leaders need to be encouraged to contest elections.

Is it OK to drink beer with underage boys as alleged by those very same boys? I'm sure Police will have circumstantial evidence to corroborate the story from the boys.

Bismarque was doing great for Goa, but his death issue must be put in proper context without resorting to some lose and trash talk as being done by this author and many others on this forum. Hang on, wait, let the facts come out.

""Though the forensic evidence in the public domain is not compelling to point out to murder, as yet the police must make public the names of all the builders, hoteliers and other soulless sharks who threatened Bismarque all these years"

Does this even make any sense? If forensic evidence and circumstances are not pointing to a foul play then why go this far. Is it legally correct to tie somebody in someone's death when they are not involved at all (at least from the circumstantial point of view), and invite defamation litigations against police?

Before hitting the keyboard keys take a few breaths and think.

Besides does police keep record of all this. If The write has this record and he should publish it.

I agree Builders and Miners are the worst people as far as Goa is concerned, but they must be attacked in a context.
