The story about the tourists who their bag stolen in Apia is a disturbing story. It is just NOT right. I am very angry and very disappointed with the people of Samoa.
Here are two tourists who are visiting Samoa in good faith and hope to enjoy a piece of paradise and yet these thugs are out to destroy every moment of their experience.
The office of Tourism Samoa should wake up and smell the hot coffee in the morning and do something about it. You simply just can't ask people to come visit and enjoy Samoa and spend their hard earned money in Samoa if they are not protected.
The Police are not doing their duty and why in the world were the tourists told to go back and forth looking for their stolen items. This is your job and this was the opportunity for the police to exercise and showcase your call to duty by stepping up and showing these tourists that you care.
Except you showed ignorant and laziness and why didn't they get off their lazy butts and do something for crying out loud. As a proud Samoan I continue to promote our island to tourists to go and visit but when people read about situations like these where they were pretty left to fetch for themselves is far cry from being a Safety Holiday Place.
