Philippine police smile and take photographs in front of the bus where Hong Kong tourists met catastrophe

A policewoman takes a photo in front of the disabled Hong Kong tour bus that was involved in a hostage crisis.

Phoenix Television’s August 25th “Zao Ban Che” [“Phoenix Morning Commute”?] program broadcasted “Philippine police taking photos at scene of Hong Kong tourist catastrophe”, with the following text below:

Yang Juan: This bullet-ridden, blood-stained tour bus is still parked in its original place [during the hostage crisis]. Just yesterday, the family members of the Hong Kong hostages came to the scene to offer sacrifices/pay their respects, the scene very touching.

However, at the same time, the bus was unexpectedly being treated as a tourist sight by people. The photograph we see here is of Philippine police at the scene taking photographs as souvenirs, smiles on their faces, as if what was behind them was some famous sight.

江苏省苏州市网友:

[Taking photos] To remember what? To remember Chinese people being killed, or the Philippines failure? Inhuman!!!

四川省成都市网友:

From the Filipino police smiling and taking photos, what we see is a lack of humanity! To be blunt: Just a bunch of creatures worse than pigs and dogs!!!

青海省西宁市网友:

No conscientious, self-respecting Chinese person should go to this trash country for tourism, buy products made by this trash country, or hire the people of this trash country.

重庆市网友:

Just what kind of country is this???!!! The Philippines! Treating life as cheap! Not taking things seriously! Strongly condemn the Philippine government and those nonchalant police and the insensitive bystanders!!! Strongly condemn and protest!!!

北京市网友:

Think of it from another angle: Their generation is a generation of servants, so this incident will probably give their base psychology a kind of satisfaction.

浙江省台州市网友:

The Philippine president is inhuman, the police even more so, and even the ordinary common Filipinos are likewise callous. This kind of callous country deserves to be destroyed!
My heartfelt condolences to the Hong Kong victims! We are all Chinese people, and at this moment, everyone’s heart is heavy!

广东省深圳市宝安区网友:

They essentially did not see the Chinese hostages as people! If the hostages were people of other countries, the result wouldn’t have been like this. Angry, angry???

上海市网友:

It is clear what place China occupies in their minds!

上海市杨浦区网友:

Taking photos at the victims’ scene is already disgraceful, but adding those the ugly faces of those young Filipino girls, it is even more disgusting.

浙江省温州市网友:

All of a sudden, the shameless of the Philippines as a country is revealed.

北京市网友:

Might as well not tow it away, having it become a tourist attraction is okay too, to represent the shame of the Philippines!!!

广东省佛山市网友:

Seeing their smiles, I think of how the day of mourning they organized cannot possibly be mourning foreigners, so can they be mourning the gunman? Who will the Philippine citizens truly mourn in their hearts? Hard to imagine.

北京市网友:

A happy tourist destination [referring to the Philippines], but just because a group of “Chinese” tourists died, and just like when the American military is attacked in Iraq/Afghanistan, it is now laughed at and made fun of by Chinese people, humanity twisted! China’s sad soul…

无线网友:

Think of the Chinese people’s sick cheering during 9/11, and the various behaviors of the the Philippine people can be well understood, this is the moral decay of nationalistic crowds!

安徽省网友:

Filipinos are a bunch of inhuman cold-blooded animals.

开舒克的贝塔:

You think there are less of these kind of people in China?

Look at the crowds of bystanders whenever something happens…how many of them are being sympathetic?

Some people…only have other people in their eyes, never looking at themselves.

倒骑摩托:

No license plate, no truth! Doesn’t exclude the possibility that it is a different bus of the same tour agency!

Of course, the Philippine JC were definitely SBs!

手心神神的:

If Hong Kong was still England’s, what would happen?

灰色的幻想:

Mentally retarded Filipino pigs. Sorry, I’ve insulted pigs.

美高梅MGM:

The Philippines simply didn’t care to rescue them, just look at how the Philippine president was full of smiles when speaking.

Those who know how to hop the wall [the GFW], this is the Philippine president’s Facebook page. A lot of Hong Kong people are leaving comments.

I’ll use “Filipino police” to insult people from now on.

redjaguar:

It can be said that Hong Kong people being held hostage this time and not getting effective help is the other side of Hong Kong’s racial discrimination.
