Did you know that the Philippines is the kidnapping capital of the world? If you were to speak with an insurance broker specializing in travel insurance, they would have kidnapping insurance plans available for travel to the Philippines although no such thing exists for any other country. Normally, countries like Colombia would be one’s first guess when talking about chances of being kidnapped, but no – nobody touches the Philippines when it comes to kidnappings.
Recently, someone told me that movie Schindler’s List was banned in the Philippines. This instantly boosted the country’s ranking on my list of world’s coolest countries and sky rocketed it to the top, but when I went to read up on it I found out that the film was only banned because it contained nudity, and not because it was a hate filled propaganda vilifying an identifiable group. Eventually, the ban was overruled by Philippine president so the ranking dropped way back down again.
Anyway – only recently we had a video of Philippine police killing two extortionists in Davao posted on Best Gore. And now here’s another similar video – this time the Philippine police, with blessings from Davao mayor Rodrigo Duterte, got two kidnappers, likewise in Davao. I think both of these events push country up the list again. Fuck lowlife criminals who turn lives of working class people into hell cause they can’t be bothered to bend their backs to earn their own living with actual work. I’m in full favor of not showing any mercy to such criminals. Two pieces of shit shown dead in this video participated in a kidnapping of a woman. There should be no negotiating with someone who does shit like that.
The victim was a businesswoman name Sally Chua from Quezon City, which is all the way up north in Luzon. She was abducted by 14 kidnappers in in her city and taken to Davao which is all the way down south. Once in Davao, the kidnappers took her to a local branch of Allied Bank where they forced her to withdraw 15 Million Pesos. They were intercepted by police while leaving the bank. Two kidnappers were shot dead, one was captured alive. The rest unfortunately got away and remains at large. The woman was rescued without being harmed, although mental trauma she’d experienced will burden her for the rest of her life, I’m sure.
Props to Best Gore member @ryankun for the video. One nice headshot there:
