Tragedy in Manila

What is the wold coming to when a police officer boards a bus, holds people hostage, and ends up killing seven of them … all in the hopes of regaining his job?  It makes no sense what so ever.  How can someone who is hired to protect the innocent turn into the complete opposite?

If there is anything positive to take from this, at least the officer was considerate enough to let a mother and her three children off of the bus earlier in the hostilities, as well as a man with diabetes.  But still, how could he think his actions were going to result in him regaining his job?  Truly sad.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to both the Chinese families involved as well as the general public in the Philippines.  Such events should never happen.
