We all should wait for the investigation to be done and over with and not -- at this early stage -- soil it by innuendos.

    yeah right

    Ya.. the hostage taker is TRAINED.. And the ENTIRE POLICE FORCE is NOT AS WELL TRAINED. you win.

    Ya. The local govt and police force did a GREAT help to the hostage taker.

    Good that you point out all these.

    Like I say earlier.. if the pple feel it's ONE person's crime issue........ what can other expect anything good to come out of it.. say more also no use..

    well said!!

    Enough with the "what ifs". It serves no purpose at this point IMHO.

    I concur, he was directing the issue to the individuals / groups involved. Not the whole nation.

    Ok, I read the post, looks like he is not directing it to the whole country my apologies.........

    But just write what is in brackets, and not: 'it's citizens (as in general meaning the whole people of that country)'.......sounds like he is mentioning the whole country when you read it that way

    My fault

    JMHO,

    Police dept., Justice dept., or National Bureau of Investigation, what's the difference? Why should one expect NBI to be better than other government officials? After all, they are all government officials that look after their own 'special interests'.

    To be honest, I don't expect anything decent to come out of the investigation. It will be one big cover up to make sure the high ups don't get implicated knowing how it operates there. You should know better than I. Or, are you naive enough to think the majority of these officials are really servants of the people?

    I've given you clues. If you do not think they matter in a hostage situation, then I rest my case.

    FYI, he's referring to SIA Flight 117. .

    I guess there's nothing more to say.

    Again, I just hope cooler (and sane) heads will prevail.

    if the pics are real, i find it a bit absurd that people actually take photos in front of the bus, as though it is some kind of a tourist attraction.. really shows the way they view this whole situation..

    These are NOT Photoshop stuff. They are real, those people actually stand there and took pictures like it is a tourist attraction. That is why HK people are so upset. Maybe it is a local custom/practice or something that HK people don't understand. Even the forenic officers pose in front of the bus.

    Oh please. Obviously you only want to hear what YOU NEED to hear. Your emotions are getting the better of you.
