    Police should be the only people who carry guns?

    Dateline Manilla:

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2010...la-hostage-bus


    The gunman, identified as Rolando Mendoza, a 55-year-old former senior inspector, had taken 24 passengers hostage. Mendoza ‑ who was sacked from the Manila force a year ago ‑ seized the hostages in an attempt to demand his reinstatement, police said.
    It is our cause to dispel the foggy thinking which avoids hard decisions in the delusion that a world of conflict will somehow mysteriously resolve itself into a world of harmony, if we just don't rock the boat or irritate the forces of aggression—and this is hogwash."

    The gunman, a former police inspector who was fired last year,
    had originally seized 24 people, including the driver, in a bid to get his job back.


    i see a slight flaw in his logic.

    It is in the Philipines. Might be a great way to get rehired.

    "Wow, he took how many hostages?, We need to have that guy back!!!!"

    Philipine's police force is probably more corrupt than our neighbor to south's force.
