Manila Hostage Taking Souvenir Pictures, Flash Game and Hitler's Reaction

Manila Hostage Crisis Souvenir Pictures, Flash Game and Hitler’s Reaction

Category: News


Whenever there’s a big fire or a road accident or a similar incident, we Filipinos usually flock to where the commotion is.

In local lingo, we are “usisero”.

I don’t know why but it’s just in our nature to be curious of what’s happening around us.

With the hostage taking crisis yesterday at the Quirino Grandstand, many were at the scene risking their lives just to have a first-hand account of how the hostage drama will unfold before their eyes. At least one bystander was even hit by a stray bullet. This prompted a Philippine senator to file an “anti-usisero” bill.

Today, another Filipino trait came out: insensitivity.

Proof? Check out the pictures below.

These people (and police at that!) have their pictures taken with the hostage bus as the background. Probably, they’re going to post them on their facebook accounts and tag their friends with a caption that reads, “Hey, I was there!”.

If that’s not insensitive, I don’t know what is.

Another Pinoy who goes by the user name “keybol” also created and uploaded to gaming site Newgrounds a Flash game just three hours after the crisis has ended.

In the game titled “Bus Hostage by Policeman“, you get to “shoot the amok policeman hostaging a bus full of Asian hostages” in one minute.

Of course, this was met with widespread criticism as well. It should be noted that the two highest scores were established by two separate people based in Hongkong.

The Manila hostage taking incident even drew the ire of Hitler.

    kakahiya talaga! Sablay na nga sa operation nagpa.picture pa kinabukasan.Maryosep! Hindi na ba tlga titinu ang mga pinoy?! Hindi tourist spot yang bus noh?! Mahiya nmn kayo..Sobra sobra ng kahihiyan ang natatanggap ng bansa natin. Kaya kahit sobrang panlalait na ng buong mundo sa pinoy ngaun wala tayong karapatan sumagot at makipagtalo sa kanila kasi kasalanan natin “We should learn how to UNDERSTAND this time”. Mas mabuti na ung manahimik na lang tayo dba?!Wag na sanang palalain pa to. Kya natin to PINOY!

    Di naman magandang tourist attraction ung nangyari eh. Malaking kahihiyan un sa bansa at lahi natin. Di dapat ipagmalaki.

    everyone is a victim of the situation. i felt pride when united to help the victims of ondoy. now i feel ashamed not because of how the authorities managed the hostage crisis but because of us pointing fingers.

    parang may patay lang yan, minsan nakukuha pa ng pinoy na mag-inuman at magsugal kesa magdasal.

    disgusting attitude.


    ark Reply:

    Oo nga. Nasanay na siguro tayo na may namamatayan, may naaksidente, may nadidisgrasya, may nabibiktima ng kalamidad kaya para lang normal na sa atin ang ganito at di na tayo masyadong affected.

    This is really disgrace, kurakot na nga sila incompetent pa. Magaling lang silang manloko, mas masahol pa sa criminal. Dapat tinatapon na yang mga police na yan sa Emyerno.


  14. Valerie Says:

    Maybe they just doing it to show others that they are there while the hostage taking …we cannot blame them because filipinos ay mahilig mag picture picture kung saan saan..
