No resolution for 8 Hong Kong tourist deaths while Trillanes and Lim set to be cut loose

No heads have rolled yet in the aftermath of a botched hostage rescue that left eight Hong Kong tourists dead and we are already seeing a bunch of bandits led by "rebel" leaders Antonio Trillanes and Danilo Lim who needlessly endangered civilian lives in a misguided "mutiny" all set to be set loose back into society.

Already the Hong Kong government had initiated its own public inquest into the handling of the hostage drama that left eight of their citizens dead.

It seems like the height of insensitivity that the Philippine Congress is now voting for the release of a bunch of bandits who were armed with high-powered weapons (bought with taxparyers' funds) not too different from the one wielded by hostage-taker Rolando Mendoza back in that tragic August 2010 day.

But then this is the Philippines, where the wrong arguments always win.
