Kidnap

A few years back, a Tsinay was abducted by amateur kidnappers who eventually killed her "accidentally". It turned out that the kidnappers were under her family's employ. They noted her daily routines and planned their strike accordingly. While some may argue that these kidnappers resorted to these because of extreme poverty, the reality is that poverty is not an excuse for committing ANY heinous crime like robbery and kidnapping, especially if lives would be at stake. It's also a cautionary tale that you can never really completely trust anybody. An employee background check and character references may help, but they may not be foolproof either. Many of these criminals target Tsinoy families because they believe that if you're Tsinoy, you must be rich. Which may not be true at all, but it's a firmly entrenched belief.

Now that election year is almost upon us, expect a surge in crime rate. As to why...well, your guess is probably as good as mine.
