disabled warning on philippines travel

I currently am in Dumaguete, Philippines. Last week a major grocery/mall chain here called Robinsons ARRESTED a BLIND man because he tried to bring his SERVICE dog into the store.
They led him away in handcuffs to the police station.
THe police here have a reputation for being corrupt, inefficient and the judiciary as well. They have alot of screwy laws here also against foreigners and foreigners are often the target of false imprisonment and or other extra-judicial actions without probable cause.
This goes to show how ignorant the Philippines is when it comes to the rights of disabled people here. It is quite likely that Robinsons will be sued over this, but it will do no good because justice here is not applied, particularily to foreigners who are considered 2nd class people here. They want us for our money but then they want us to get the hell out.
I have not special interest in this. I am just accurately telling what happened. If you are disabled, especially if you have a service animal, do not come to the Philippines and expect to have any rights. Also senior citizens in the Philippines get a discount, but this only applies to senior citizens who are Filipino and a foreigner cannot get the special card needed for this discount.
The Philippines is a backward Country in many ways, ignorant. This is just another example of this.
