CPDRC Concepts -- Philippine prison management (Update)

I can't figure out how videos puzzle together with prison management, but it seems to be working in the Phillippines. I came across the dancing inmates last year and was caught by a voyeuristic impulse.

CPDRC Concepts -- Philippine prison management

This most recent release seems to be something of a political protest. Someone disrespected the local Cardinal and this video was put together in "protest."

Prisoners of Cebu Province are angry at Rodolfo Noel “Jun” Lozada Jr. for his statements against the Archdiocese of Cebu and its leader, Archbishop Ricardo Cardinal Vidal, according to Capitol Security Consultant Byron Garcia.

To show their outrage, inmates of the Cebu Provincial Detention and Rehabilitation Center will hold a dance presentation tomorrow to send Lozada the message. It will be viewable by the public from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

“The inmates got irked after they saw on TV how he talked about the Cardinal,” Garcia said.

Garcia said the inmates love the Cardinal, especially after the prelate took time to hold Mass and talk to the prisoners last December.

Garcia said Nilo Quirante, leader of the inmates, informed him of the inmates’ idea of a dance. The aim was to tell Lozada “not to bring his thirst for publicity to Cebu” and to show support for President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, whom Lozada has accused of corruption.
