Here are the reasons.   1) It might make Americans sympathetic to Philippines President Duterte. That's because Duterte = Trump > Hitler.   2) Because we have our own news story

Some guy took a selfie with the hijacker:

NYC installs free internet kiosks, entirely predictable results ensue.  City officials shocked.

 

 

The Wi-Fi kiosks in New York were designed to replace phone booths and allow users to consult maps, maybe check the weather or charge their phones. But they have also attracted people who linger for hours, sometimes drinking and doing drugs and, at times, boldly watching pornography on the sidewalks.

 

 

That is what happens when you have computers with free internet access just dangling out there in public.  Have these people never seen a library?

 

 

 

“We’re a modern city; we should have Wi-Fi,” Ms. Blair said. “But when something has an outcome that you completely weren’t anticipating, then you have to go back and reconsider. Maybe other cities don’t have this problem.”

 

Evidently not.

I guess our President is winning friends and influencing people all over the globe.

 

Is this really a guy you want to be friends with?

Money quote: Duterte said: "There are three million drug addicts [in the Philippines]. I'd be happy to slaughter them. "

Well, well, well, I guess Worst Korea really is Worst. Pretty big scandal with the president. No links yet because mobile.

Sounds like Hillary's email scandal, but more hardcore.  I'm seeing a lot of people saying this confirms some old conspiracy theory about Worst Korea being run by some shadow government called the 8 Goddesses, but I've not looked much into that.  Most I've found so far on that half is some screencap of a 4chan post

 

 

 

Speaking of the Clinton Email scandal, the case just got reopened on that as well.
