Last night I was glued in front of the television while watching the hostage drama in Quirino Grandstand in Manila. A tour bus having a passengers of Hongkong nationals was hostage by a former police officer , who were dismissed on duty because of administrative cases that involves him. While watching the live telecast of the rescue operation of assigned policemen in that area, I could not hide my dismay to the assigned policemen to rescue the victims. After the exchanging of gun shoot from the hostage taker and the sheriff , It was reported that 15 and up dead bodies were recover. A very sad story, that if only the authorities managing that hostage come up with a peaceful plan to rescue the victims, I'm sure more lives will be save than wasted.
