    Was anybody at greenbelt today when the lunchtime robbery was perpetrated? Any additional info that you could give? Just saw it on the news.

    Just makes you think that we need to be really be ever more vigilant. Times are getting rough.

    Kaiser Soze was having lunch there. My sister was also in the area when the shooting started. Some of her friends who were on their way to meet her actually saw the perps coming out of the store.

    Scary *****. Too brazen to be dismissed as a run-of-the-mill, tabloid worthy, holdup job. They just raised the bar for other groups.

    OT: Just wanted to rant. I just heard that the 2 police escorts of Mayor Tinga of Taguig were the ones that engaged the robbers as they exited the store. They were outnumbered, outgunned, and probably tactically disadvantaged because they had their principal to worry about. What were they thinking? They not only put their lives in danger but also the lives of every other person in that mall. Buti sana kung terrorists on a killing spree ang pumasok sa mall. In that case, even I would feel obligated to get involved if I was in the area and armed. They could have coordinated with Makati Police to catch the perps in a less populated area by means of checkpoints and/or a full on police chase. Kung makawala with their bounty of Rolexes then sorry. It wasn't worth it to initiate a running gun battle with several hundred civilians serving as backstops.

    And get this. They are now recommended for promotion for actions above and beyond the call of duty. Above and beyond their jurisdiction and skills perhaps?

    A bad guy is dead.

    Chalk one up for the good guys.

    Was there actual human collateral damage?

    Bikethief,

    I think mabilis ang pangyayari, and those Taguig cops had good intentions. Let's just be glad that collateral damage was minimal

    truly the most unappreciated kind of job in the planet...:crying:

    tim, what happened was not a movie scene, not scripted. it's the real scenario which we cannot tell what will happen next. good thing that as of now no other injuries or casualty reported yet caused by the bodyguards' FA's. i think they did their job well. i don't think it's beyond their skills, a robber was killed. i can strongly say that nobody here with topnotch skills in the range or gym can compare the skills these bodyguards have shown...

    Sabagay. It's too easy to analyze after the fact and from an outsiders point of view. Medyo too close to home lang talaga kasi my sister was in the same building. Remember din the attempted carjacking a few days back? My whole family passes the same road everyday and my siblings drive the same types of vehicles as the victim. Nakakapraning. But I never meant to offend anybody. Saki, mannix, peace ha. Medyo mainit dito sa bog the past few days.

    Pero I love the picture sa taas! Where was he hit?

    tim,

    no problem..i guess all of us are agitated with the whole thing. my wife works for the ayalas. i personally have a very high regard for the ayala malls. this incident is a wake up call again. some years back, a similar incident happened in megamall, BDO ata ang target noon.

    You got that right. Medyo closer to home yung mga incidents now and this isn't even the Christmas season yet.

    Yup and it happened in Walter Mart a few weeks ago and happened at Gotesco Commonwealth a few years back too.

    These guys are truly brazen. Really sad how things are turning out. :steamed:

    as an OT to the guys here. If you see something like this will you join in?
    I think I will make myself soooo small that I can crawl under a rock or if I'm with my family just cover them.

    Guys better stay alert - never forget the OODA loop.

    edtf,

    me, i won't,they don't allow us to pack inside the malls.

    but your question begs another question..if a civilian intervened, regardless what happened to the perps pero nagkaroon ng casualties na innocents, will that guy be held liable (criminal and civil?) something like, reckless imprudence resulting to homicide?

    because if the answer above is yes, eh its not worth it na makialam kahit puwede

    Yup!! Binay is fuming mad and saying that these guys were all carrying HPR and one was carrying an m203 too.

    edtf,

    Yeah same here. You have a point and you become the poster boy of why people shouldn't be allowed to carry guns :steamed:

    :thumbsup:

    They had quick thinking and engaged. I would say they did the right thing. IMO, those bodyguards didn't play hero. They caught the BGs by surprise, and that played a big factor.

    A promotion would be the icing on the cake.:thumbsup:

    BTW, have you noticed that everytime a national election nears, the incidents of robberies increase? Just wondering.

    How did they expect to make money out of those watches? Registered lahat with serial numbers ang rolex diba? Or gagamitin as campaign gifts mga yun?

    Hehe. Mag aabang ako ng "cheap rolex for sale" sa lahat ng forums.

    Back on topic, is it legal for companies such as Ayala to form their own emergency response units? Something like an in-house SWAT team to augment blue guard security and police presence. Will this fall under the same category as maintaining a private army?

    hindi ata, plus there's the liability issue if things go awry=bad for business.

    there is the ayala security force headed by ex-military and ex-cops.

    Since malls are privately owned would it be possible for the sekyu agencies already in place organize an specialized unit of their own e.g. CTU, armed undercover personnel? Just my two dirhams.

    oops sorry same idea had been posted.....
