As corrupt as it is, it’s bizarre that these didn’t become part of the dicktator’s car collection. A lot of good it did to crush them, they sure showed them.

He's such a douche. Saying that a place that needs business first there must be "law and order."

First there needs to be schools and hospitals - that are seriously lacking over there. And he could have sold them and built several schools. But no. He doesn't want to educate his own people because they would turn on him. What a douche.

I'm secretly sort of happy that the Lambo got it though...

Hmmmm, such a poor country. $5.5 mill would have done wonders for the suffering people or to upgrade the healthcare system, etc. I don't get it. Why not confiscate them and sell them

That would require common sense, something of which is in very limited supply in this regime. This was an act about showing how much power you can wield, as opposed to using that power to do good for your country.

He’s trying to show that no matter how rich you are your toys can get taken away.
In a country where corruption is common that sends a message to the rest of the populace that $5M in advertising would not be able to match.

Well after seeing that the US should stop sending aide (if we are...and we must be). If he can afford to crush 5.5 mil. Why we sending aide??

He is simply sending message to the illegal importation or smuggled goods that this is what is going to happen to it if they do not go thru the proper channels of paying import taxes. He is a Douce in many ways but he wants to change corruption in the Philippines especially among government officials.
