Kidnapping, taking the internal organs and killing! Why? Intentions?

Philippines
March 10, 2008 11:55pm CST
There was a recent news in my locality of kidnapping for the purpose of taking internal organs and killing them especially elementary students. The authorities are in alert and there was already a victim. An elementary student was found dead, eyes are taken, internal organs were gone, and $250 amount of bills were found inserted inside the body. Why? Why can they afford to do this? Is this how evil the world has become? It makes me sigh. What do you think?

It's on the news here in the Philippines and it's not an email circulating. The van was last seen according to the news in the Cordillera province, that's my place.

This is true, WinterRose, and not just a hearsay. This van was also seen in my niece's school gate. It's good the guard saw them when they were trying to kidnap a girl. Too bad they did it close to the gate. Also last year about March 2007, this modus operandi was witnessed in Thailand. The van had no plate number and they posted the kidnapper's picture around the school campus where I was doing my graduate studies. It's really awful and I feel sorry for the children they are harvesting.

I heard about this a few months back... and the police confirmed that they are not true... just tales being circulated to scare school children so that they will go straight home after school... If this was true... it would be all over the news now... but then... rumor or not... we still need to be careful... and to instruct out children what to do in case someone they do not know approaches them...

It's really sick! I've read news and a lot of email circulating. The people doing this should be put to jail immediately.

This sounds like some tremendous hoax, the police did not send the confirm and can not find any evidence of this actually happening. It is unfortunate that this is how people get their kicks.

I have read about that and it really makes me sick. How can we as a society look at ourselves when some of us will do anything for money? It is so sickening and children how low can people get?

the intentions i think is obvious - it's money. they said that the kidnappers are a group of taiwanese people.. they operate in the van taking the organs out an freezing them.. internal organ donors especially for children are quite rare.. so they will need to force them and take it. i know it's sick but i happen to get wind that some families do have children missing.. and my friend said that he saw a mother posting pictures of her missing child..sad.. our city governments should do something about it though.. in my city, there are a lot of crimes and nothing gets solved.. the dentist, the balikbayan from italy, etc... the only thing that was solved was when the killer left his wallet on the crime scene..

My mother was really panicky about this. I'm pretty nervous too because in the last few days, I always go home late. I'll go home around 8pm or 9pm because of doing projects and stuffs. It's really sick. They violate people and didn't even give even a little dignity left. Why can they do this? I sure hope the reason is valid because I can't really forgive such people doing such obscene things to the youth. The future generation is doomed.

This news reaches us too, a white van with plate no. BMM-967 and i don't know if authorities are acting on it since they have this vehicle description. I don't have the idea also it this is true but then there's nothing to lose if take extra careful than be sorry later.

Could be for the money, for they resort to this type of gruesome activity. I've also heard about it, our own community has even started posting the sketch of one of those suspects here. They are using these internal organs to sell on people or family who are searching for something to save someone's life, maybe for their sons or daughters. It could also be because of someone behind it told people that they're searching for child's internal organs, willing to pay no matter how it costs and then those people prowling are their henchmen. The group are rampant on the southern part of Luzon, as that's where I came from and we are also doing our best to guard the community as well as the children..

hmm if this news was true we should be careful of ourselves even the older one.. There's a lot of people needing such organ for the transplant. We should be aware of the people around us. Maybe because of that news It will trigger the desperate people to earn a cash just for selling an organ. We don't know who's the desperate people. Just wacth out!
