I saw the news article when it was forwarded to me in the office early this afternoon. But since I was busy, I didn't have the time to read it. When my husband picked me up later this evening, he mentioned about the robbery that became murder.
I was horrified when I read the whole thing, especially in the cnn article where they said that bank robberies are common in the Philippines but not this bloody. I'm affected maybe because I also work for a bank and this definitely will make me not want to request for a transfer to the branch near our house anytime soon.
When I used to be in another department in our bank, I used to also look into branch operations and I saw the risk that they face everyday. Branch staff are even trained on how to deal with robberies and though how sad, I do agree with the CNN article. Bank robbers just comes in, declares a hold-up, gets the cash and makes the get-away. This is the first time in a long time that the bank staff were killed.
The family of the victims are in my prayers because until the murderers are caught, they will live their lives without any closure.
