By Davinci S. Maru

Saturday, October 6, 2012

 

 

AN AMERICAN national was killed after he allegedly refused to lend his motorcycle to the suspect. The incident happened at 7:50 p.m. in Sitio Cogon, Barangay Maslog, Danao City, Cebu last Thursday.

 

The victim was identified as 25-year-old Christopher Bonsukan, a Texan native. Bonsukan was allegedly shot in the chest by suspect Alvin Bensig, a resident in the area.

 

Bensig remains at large.

 

SPO2 Eldefonso Prucia of Danao City Police Station told Sun.Star Cebu that Bonsukan was visiting his girlfriend Mary Ann Aguilar, who lives in the sitio, which was celebrating its annual fiesta.

that's a damn shame. what a terrible price to pay. so young and lost his life over some stupid motorbike. i know it's hard to predict how one will act when in a similar situation, but i hope we are all smart enough to forget the macho rambo crap and just hand over whatever item is demanded in a similar situation and let the police handle the rest. no matter how tough we may feel we are...we can't match the desperation of a dire criminal nor predict who is armed and willing to shoot.

Yeah I agree mate, when the price of a life is so cheap and someone is willing to kill for a few dollars, you can't go around being the hero. That's a sad story about this young guy. It's good the murderer has been identified and fingers crossed they catch him soon.

I know it doesnt always work, but I believe that a great many of these situations can be resoved with humor rather than bravado .

 

 

When a drunk at a festival approaches you and asks for your bike rather than a " feck you no you cant have my bike" a " hey man you look like you need another beer , lets go get one " is what I am talking about . [ the story said the guy wanted to borrow the bike- ie it wasnt a car napping situation ]

Sad. Of course we don't know the particulars. Maybe the guy was drunk at the fiesta and just said, "Hey Joe, can I borrow your bike?" I'm, sure we'd all say something like, "Not this time." "Sorry, no." "I don't think so." And the guy took offense. Who knows?

Like others have said, who knows what the whole situation was when it unfolded. Especially with his SO there. Could have been an ex, family member, or complete stranger, in relationship to the Filipina. Sorry to see it happen, and more sorry it's just another sad and tragic statistic/trend that seems to be on the rise.

Wait -

 

:banghead:

 

- alright, I feel better now after reading this post.

 

First off, my deep sorrows to this guy and his family.

 

1- The "story" said? A dead man, and a murderer on the loose, and some witnesses all said, he wanted to "borrow" the bike and then simply shot him in the chest from a no?

 

2- Let's get another beer with a man who finds murdering another for a bike "borrowing" refusal a sensible idea? Oh yes, how hilarious and insightful - go get a beer with a drunk that "politely" asked to borrow your bike. I guess after the next beer he would finally be more rational, kind and understanding to the incredible humor and wisdom of getting him drunker.

 

3- Where did the story say the shot in cold blood said feck you?

 

This "story" seems rather odd, and there is no doubt it went further then just a may I, borrowing refusal.

 

Let's go have another drink? Really?

 

How about, realizing that the guy who asked, was probably the one portraying the alpha tone - after all, he did want a bike and did kill somebody, and was carrying a gun - and this was the guy probably saying the first feck you. Maybe, the humor should of been a knock knock joke, or better yet, an offer to buy the polite, simple request, murderer a beer (hilarious) and then making a fake comfort room pee, followed by a bee line to the bike.

 

RIP to a kid far far too young to be shot down in a bike jacking.

You really cannot relax and let your guard down anywhere, gotta look over the shoulder all the time. For such a God fearing nation, I'm really taken back by stuff like this. Maybe it's time to rethink how good it is here.

 

As a foreigner, every move you make is watched, both near and from a far. When the time is right, the predator will make a move. It's really hard to defend against it here without becoming a total recluse.
