Philippine SWAT Storm Bus With Hostages In Manila

Here's the footage of the storming of the bus with hostages in Manila on August 23, 2010.

There were 25 hostages and 7 people were killed, 5 were injured and taken to the hospital and 9 were released by the hostage taker Rolando Mendoza.

Because of this incident, Hong Kong has issued a travel ban to the Philippines.

One of my co-workers who's from Hong Kong said, "My people were killed! How can you live in a country were the peace keepers cannot keep the peace? The police were inept and doesn't even seem to know what they were doing. I wouldn't want to go there."

If you look at the footage, you can see that the Philippine SWAT team really looks disorganized. Here's what some of my friends called the SWAT. SWAT = Sorry Wala Akong Training / Sorry We Aren't Trained / Sulong, Wait, Atras, Tago LOL.

What a damn shame, goodbye tourism!

Here's another video of the hostage crisis from AP.
