    I believe they do have laws covering bladed weapons. The problem is not with the law, it is with crime prevention. Unfortunately most of the police only respond to crimes, they don't go out, make a presence and try to discourage criminal activity.

    No matter there's a law, which forbid, when enforcement is lacking, any law is just a paper tiger.

    And obviously anyone can bring his weapons to this public drinking place.

    I didn't watch the video and I am not sure whether I want to watch it.

    Fact is you get checked by security at each entrance of a mall or supermarket or bank or whatsoever.

    But at a place where people get drunk, excited and emotional, you can bring your weapons.

    That's not really clear to me.

    If someone is bleeding to death you get them to the closest medical facility available.

    All living things have the desire to survive - part of that process is to monitor the environment. It is of more importance to monitor those things which demonstrate a risk to something similar (ie. another foreigner) than to something which is not similar. There is no bias against Filipinos here. Many of the postings on this forum show the respect we all have for most of the people to whom this country belongs.

    That's an odd thing to wonder about.
    Filipinos are not of more or less worth than a Marine. It isn't a competition to see who is the most messed up and there is only so much in this world we can get all worked up over.

    Have you also wondered why topics on this forum (and pretty much any Asian niche forum) concerning parking, traffic and food catches people's attention 1000 fold more than either of the topics you just mentioned? If you want to up the post count on a Philippines forum all you have to do is ask for everyone's opinion on the local traffic and parking situation, and for even more posts, ask people how they think those problems could be resolved.

    My wife, Biebe and I have living in Siaton 6 years now. We are close to Tongo and AJs, Tambobo and we meet to have dinners. Yes if your a unknowing foreigner, drunkard, gambler and not accessible to Philippine ways (keriokee, fiestas, family ways, and culture) it can happen. We live in their country not ours. P.S, only time I was robbed and physically hurt was in SF, CA in 1993.

    It isn't strange. Mental illness + alcohol = serious problems.

    • Please refrain from using bold text. It is considered as yelling and is bad form on the internet.
    "3. It is unlawful to carry outside of one's residence any bladed, pointed or blunt weapon such as "knife", "spear", "pana", "dagger", "bolo", "barong", "kris", or "chako", except where such articles are being used as necessary tools or implements to earn a livelihood or in pursuit of a lawful activity. Any person found guilty thereof shall suffer the penalty of imprisonment of not less than one month nor more than one year or a fine of not less than Two Hundred Pesos nor more than Two Thousand Pesos, or both such imprisonment and fine as the Court may direct." BATAS PAMBANSA BILANG 6


    Here, laws and decrees are made in Manila and we'd be happy if some of the people in the countryside are aware of them. The Philippines is a knife culture going way back. In the latest incident, she ran back into the house and grabbed the knife. As for the woman carrying the knife into a karaoke bar, it is legal in many US states for you to carry a pistol into a bar. It is the mother's mentality that is the question. Life can be cheap here, but it is in some areas of the US too.
