MANILA HOSTAGE CRISIS: THE SIEGE, THE AFTERMATH AND THE INSENSITIVE…


I was reading the news when I saw a link from Yahoo with consolidated photos of the tragic hostage crisis last August 23, 2010 at the Quirino Grandstand in Manila. It was quite disappointing as well to see some students even posing in front of the crime scene the day after for a photo that they can perhaps put on their FACEBOOK accounts. Tsk.
