As if the flak that the Manila Police Department (MPD) is getting is not enough after the incident of the hostage taking last Monday, photos of police officers and SOCO (Scene of the Crime Operatives) are also circulating in Facebook.
Yes, PNP officers having their photos taken in front of the bus where the hostage taking happened — as if the bus is now a tourist monument (no pun intended).
Now, we can’t really tell the people of Hong Kong (and the Chinese for that matter) to calm down and be civil if we ourselves cannot act like one and be sensitive and sympathize to the victims. This is another blow to the Filipinos and the entire nation.
The tourist bus was still at the scene this afternoon, 2 days after the incident. It was later towed to Camp Bagong Diwa for further investigation and gathering of evidence.
