A more plausible interpretation of what happened at Resorts World. [Bobi Tiglao's Manila Times column Claims that IS attacked Resorts World covering up management negligence.]
The complex was rushed to completion in 2008 for the opening of the casino. Megaworld isn't exactly known for the integrity and aesthetics of its structures as anyone who saw the complex when it wasn't completed at that time yet and those who have had relatives and friends stay at the next door Marriott hotel.
But aside from the fatalities who unnecessarily perished, there is still the question of how the gunman had burned himself to death in such a serene state - his M-4 cradled on his chest and him lying down on the floor as of he didn't experience any intense feeling of pain as he burned to death.
It also opens up the question of compensation. Is P1M the price of human life today when death is the result of negligence?
The inconsistencies in the narration of the events instead of achieving its goal only opened up more questions.
Rappler's Maria Ressa was probably just too excited that her much ballyhooed prophecy about ISIS in the Philippines had come true that she made it appear that the perpetrator was a lone wolf attacker.
Clearly, there's a deeper story behind what the real purpose of the attack was. This is what needs to be uncovered.
