My thoughts on the Filipino bus siege.

What a terrible tragedy that could have easily been avoided… Unfortunately, the Filipino SWAT team (if you could call it that) was completely incompetent for the job.  It was as if they couldn’t care less about the hostages — let’s rush the bus and hope for the best…  And it took them like 11 hours to come up with a solution, and yet they still failed against a lone gunman.  In the footage where they approached the bus with sledgehammers, you can see all the SWAT members crouched up behind their leader as if they hadn’t a clue what the fuck they were supposed to be doing.  And where the fuck were the snipers anyway?  I also read that the hostage taker was doing all this just so he could be reinstated as an officer of the law.  What the fuck?
