Please be open-minded. Don't look at Filipinos as just one man.
He made a mistake, we know it. But he has reasons. I know one of his reasons is his family. Maybe they're starving. Of course, he's a father and he should be responsible for the money his family uses. I know you would do something about it. To all of you, he was once a policeman. He lost his job because of extortion and he/they(with his co-policeman, maybe) forced the chef(the victim of extortion) to take illegal drugs. Yes, it was wrong. And he was punished. He was fired. And maybe they have no money to spend on their daily needs. That's why he did it. He was ignored by the ombudsman three times. Three times. He want the case to be re-read (i don't know if that's right XD). But then as I said, he was ignored.
Then he did the 'Hostage Taking thing' to get noticed for sure. He did it the wrong way, I know. But at least he get noticed right? And for me? I think the PNP shot a lot of civilians there. Those HK Nationals that are wounded. I think the police shot them unknowingly - because the driver said that all of the hostages are dead.
Well, for Senior Inspector Rolando del Rosario Mendoza.. you did a bad move. But in all fairness, thank you. If you haven't do that, PNP wouldn't upgrade or train again so that they can handle such situations.
To the media: WHY DID YOU BROADCAST WHAT WAS HAPPENING OUTSIDE WHEN YOU ALREADY KNOW THAT HE (Mr. Mendoza) HAS A TELEVISION INSIDE THE BUS?? AND WHY DID YOU LET HIM SEE THAT THE POLICE ARE ARRESTING HIS BROTHER??? WTH MEDIA!!!
To PNP, SWAT, etc.: WHY ARE YOU SO LAME??? WHY ARE YOU SO SCARED?? YOU SHOULD'VE GONE INSIDE FROM BOTH SIDES SO YOU CAN SHOT HIM FROM BEHIND!! YOU SHOULD'VE HANDLED THE SITUATION BETTER!!!! Learn from the situation. Learn from it!! Gosh!!
To the families of those who died on the hostage taking: My deep condolences. :( I'm very sorry for what happened. He just did it the wrong way.
To all of you who are reading this: Please don't look at Filipinos as just one man. He made a mistake. But that doesn't mean that we, Filipinos, are all hostage takers or crime makers. Please. Be considerate. We know what he did was wrong. We're still the same old Filipinos who are hospitable and caring and any-trait-you-already-knew-we-have. Just, be considerate.
To God: Thanks for yesterday, today and tomorrow. :)
P.S This is my own opinion. No haters, 'kaaaaaay?
