"The police needs to convince a highly skeptical public and the courts that their gas theory is credible,"why was the PNP's gas theory not credible? Because
"...the investigation team had revised its "initial findings" several times, first claiming the explosion, which killed 11 persons and injured more than 100, might have been caused by a bomb, then later saying it was triggered by either LPG (liquefied petroleum gas), diesel or methane."As if theories on the cause of the bombing should not be revised based on the evidence. But wait, later, Mayor Binay says
"They stuck to the gas leak theory even in the face of contrary findings from experts from the academe and the industry. But when Malacañang has already made a public statement, we cannot really expect the subordinates to say otherwise,"So which is it Mayor. The gas explosion theory is not credible because the PNP revised its theories several times or that they stuck to the gas theory even in the face of contrary findings? Either they are wishy washy or they are too stubborn. They cannot be both.
It must be noted that the FBI and the Australian Forensic Police came to the same conclusion as that of the PNP.
