The hostage of Chinese tourists inside a tourist bus ended in a bloody mess as the Philippine National Police failed to rescue them. A former police captain, who was demanding for his reinstatement from the police force because of extortion charges, was also killed. Aside from the killing of hostages, what makes it sad and humiliating is that the police were so incompetent and ill-prepared that they didn't know what to do.

Now the headline is being splashed across the world. We are indeed a laughing stock in Internet forums as they blame it collectively on our country and our people when in fact it was due to some people's mishandling of a delicate situation. Many officials would wash their hands off and distance themselves from this infamy. Tell that to the victim's family, tell that to the Hong Kong government, tell that to the People's Republic of China.

A sad day for all of us...
