The hostage crisis at the Quirino Grandstand in Metro Manila, Philippines spawned debates in its wake.
Were the police unprepared for these kinds of situations? Did the media "over-report" and could this have greatly affected the outcome?
Is race a factor in this, i.e. were the Chinese really targeted victims? Is it proper to have the Philippine flag draped over the hostage-taker's coffin?
What do you think?
If fact, the media did not report the incident adequately. Had it happened in USA, UK or other places, the whole thing would have been reported worldwide.
I dont think the hostage takers would have considered the nationality of their hostages before.
As it happened in Phillipines, it is proper to drape the coffins with Phillipine-flag as the coffins would have been saluted by the local security.
