I've been trying to stay away from the computer since last night, trying to stop myself from blogging about a certain situation I'm not very proud of. I don't wanna talk about that awful, shameful situation here in the blogosphere where people from all walks of life, race, culture are surely gonna read this post. But my disappointment about this condescending act got the better of me and I knew not to shut up and pretend like I have nothing to say.
I'm talking about the hostage crisis that rocked the entire nation yesterday morning. And oh, did I tell you we made it to the international news? Oh yeah! What a shame!!!
I was so disappointed at how the situation was handled, how the police force acted like fucking incompetent crap! No, I'm not gonna say sorry for disgracing my fellow countrymen but we're talking about the lives of 22 tourists, all Chinese Nationals from Hongkong, hijacked inside the tourist bus by a disgruntled ex-policeman! Damn. And to add that the standoff lasted for almost 12 hours is seriously pissing off and will make you ask what-the-fuck-are-those-police-and-swat-team-doing?!
Circled around the bus.
Waited for the hostage taker to fire at them before they decided to make assault.
Huh!! Very much like in filipino movies.
Here's the funny thing...
I like to read detective and crime books. So my friend and I were talking about how they can possibly solve it. We eventually talked about throwing gas inside the bus so they can get in, or let a sniper finish him off... you know stuff like that... And guess what?! That's what they finally did in the end. Soooo stupid! They actually waited for 11 hours and nine people to die before they could think of that???? I think that's serious blunder!
Anyway, my heart goes out to the families of these hostage victims, most especially to those who perished in these unthinkable act of just one disgruntled man who wants nothing but to be reinstated in service. I'm not gonna condone him for whatever reasons he had. There are other ways to air his sentiments and smarter ways to seek fairness and justice if that's what he's looking for. An act of one disgruntled man made a very huge impact to the nation and tarnished every citizen of this country. All I can say is F-U-C-K-Y-O-U!!! Congratulations for putting us ALL in shame. Now I'm pretty sure tourism will hit rock bottom starting today. And what's more disgusting? The Hongkong government issued a black travel order to the Philippines. It's like saying : "hey, don't go there. that place is freaking dangerous. Kidnappers, murderers are everywhere."
I hope this is not going to be another lesson UNLEARNED... and forgotten.
