The Philippines is a corrupt country and the police extort money from whoever they can...
It happened to me when I went to Manila in 2009. A traffice cop stopped my taxi,
took the driver's license and demanded money from the taxi driver who in turn asked me.
I couldn't believe it and I just got out of the taxi and waved down another driver.
The policeman realised that I wasn't going to give any money and he gave the taxi driver's license back.
On the 23th of the August, 8 people died in the bus hijacking, kids lost their parents…
The police smashed the windows of the bus just to cover the letters that
the kidnapper wrote instead of trying to save the hostages first.
Some shocking pictures
