 it's been a while since i last posted and unfortunately, i'm not here bearing good news.

everyone, or almost everyone would have heard of the hostage-taking in the philippines. i came home today with the news already all over the television. i was flabbergasted, as these things don't usually happen around here. So yeah, i came home with the news, the hostage-taking already been going on for a number of hours and i know that everyone of the filipinos and the family of the hostages are anxious of what the outcome will be. at first, i tried to go one through all my normal routines being facebook-ing, dancing and all those crap. as i was about to take a bath, i saw my mom watching the whole ordeal and i couldn't help but be curious. so i stayed and watched for a while and realized that this isn't something i can ignore. it's happening in manila, somewhere near (kinda) our school and it involved a former police officer and a whole lot of stupid present police officers and SWAT team. i stayed more, lied down on my brother's bed and started shouting at the television. it was something stupid, a former police officer couldn't get over how he lost his job and then decided that he'll take foreigners as hostages. if you ask me, COMPLETE BULLSHIT. he was a police officer and he was trained to protect the citizens and their visitors. even though he was fired, he should have kept those values in him.

anyway, they were able to infiltrate the bus, the hostage-taker is dead and everything is done, right? WRONG. the moment they announced that the former officer is dead, PEOPLE, CITIZENS flocked over the bus. they completely, fucking ignored the fact that the police just killed the hostage-taker and that they still have to completely make sure everything's safe. but FUCKING curious people just went ahead and lost all their common sense and just decided to go to the bus to see what's happening. and it's raining fucking hard. i know i should be blaming the police for lack of crowd control and all that crap but it seems like common sense is hard to come by nowadays. i don't know why they approached the bus immediately, i don't know why they couldn't have stopped and thought of what was wise to do before approaching the fucking bus that was filled and is still filled with tear gas. it just angered me that not many people think first before they act. :|

this has been a rant. i shall be back when i've cooled down properly.

i'm keeping this post completely public.

dude, that was some of the weirdest news to wake up to. the fact that it was an ex-cop and in manila.... i'm no expert on the philippines, but i was under the impression that crazy hostage shit there only really happened in the south with the muslim separatists. and i feel like it's been a while since they've done much (that's gotten the attention of the international press).

but seriously. what the hell kind of thought-process did that ex-cop have? "i was fired for extortion (or bad behavior? there are conflicting reports in the states) and want my job back..... i think a hijacking is the most efficient way."

what the hell.

ia completely. i wasn't even aware of what was happening until i got home. and the hostage thingy happened in the morning, at least here. yes, the muslims has been silent (or peaceful) for a while now and then this idiot ex-cop ruined everything. :|

yes, i read of the conflicts. not sure of it either. he was fired last year, if i'm not mistaken.

and, mte. he couldn't have been more stupid. :|

LOL. I have read all the crazy curses I've seen for the last days over this news. But yeah the ex-officer is raelly fucked up. Doing something bad then when it blows out of proportion he takes it to the innocent citizens. So much in our efforts to get our country slashed off from travels bans. And what more... we fucked mess up with the now 2nd largest economy and superpower in the world. Scary picture. >,< Though I think the ex-o would really wanna take this into the international scene and yeah even if it takes his life. Tsk... tsk... tsk...

I agree and they didn't even care if they would be hurt in going nearer to the bus just to get some gossips..

it's not as much as gossip as it was of stealing. what other motive would they have aside from stealing from the bus? it contained foreigners. and foreigners mean money. :|
