Facts Behind Philippines Extrajudicial Killings Issue

President Rodrigo Duterte won the 2016 elections by more than 6 million votes against LP (Liberal Party) standard bearer Mar Roxas has proved that the Filipinos are for ‘change’, The Filipinos chose to elect the President who could make a difference.

Duterte during the campaign period has been very transparent regarding his plans once elected as President and has reiterated several times that if he wins, he will eliminate corruption and crime. He also warned drug users and pushers in the country “to better surrender or it will be bloody.”

Duterte mentioned that the main problem of the country is drugs, and that is why launching a campaign against it was on the top of his priorities.

Sugarcoating is not Duterte’s way to make people feel safe, but instead, he allowed the country to be aware regarding the real status of drugs in the country.

In his very first few months, the President’s effort in battling drugs led to at least over half a million drug users surrendered during the nationwide drug campaign led by General Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa.

Besides the number of those surrendered, around over 1,500 of alleged drug users, pushers, and drug lords were taken down during entrapment and buy-bust operations.

“Do your duty and I will die for you,” the statement of the PNP’s Commander-in-chief Rodrigo Duterte during the turnover rites at Camp Crame.

“And if there is a resistance that would place your life in jeopardy, then by all means shoot and shoot him dead. That is my order,” he added.

The President being very vocal about his support on the PNP against the war on drugs has reminded the troops not to misuse their authority and added that he would not tolerate any abuses committed by the law enforcers of the country.

Duterte accused as the mastermind of extrajudicial killings but then clarifies that the death of a criminal will only occur once there is a violent resistance that could jeopardize the life of law enforcers.

Besides the administration’s campaign on drugs, several accomplishments reported during the first few months in the office.

One-Stop service center for OFWs
The President has implemented a one-stop-shop which would cater the needs of OFW’s in processing government needed requirements.

The said one-stop service center would not just allow them to save money on travel expenses, but it would also expedite the processing of documents.

911 Emergency hotline, 8888 for complaints
911 serves as the nationwide hotline that would allow faster response for emergencies depending on the situation. The said hotline originally came from the US for the same purpose. Furthermore, the implementation of the national hotlines is the first time in history for the country.

The number 8888 will then allow Filipinos to report and issues concerning government offices, the 8888 hotline would allow citizens to report any irregularities in any government offices instantly. This hotline’s primary goal is to eliminate corruption and to make sure that employees are doing their job well.

Financial Assistance for OFW’s
The government allocated 500 million as Financial aid to OFW’s in Saudi to help them recover. The government also gave free legal advice and promised to shoulder the studies of the children of OFW’s as added benefit.

The current administration is working double time to fix the needs of the country but might take a few years, but the important thing for Filipinos is that they are feeling the change. The leader which the country has now has the heart to lead and could make the Philippines a developing country resulting to a better future.

  2. I will say this, against terrorists, the rules are different because that is war. I agree kill the terrorist like a foriegn invading army. Just be careful not to treat common criminals as terrorists.

  3. Police have every right to use all the force necessary to make a lawful arrest, even lethal force. But a good faith effort must be made to make the arrest peacefully, then if arrested the suspect must get a fair and honest trial. Otherwise the Philippines becomes a dictatorship full of death squads.

  12. Do the Filipinos condone police kill people without a fair trial?

    • no we Filipinos doesn’t condone police or anybody for that matter to kill people without fair trial…but we understand police who protect themselves from being killed by these “zombies” who were a great menace to the Filipino people…

  13. First they murder the drug dealers with no trial. No one speaks up. Then they murder the Muslims with no trial. No one speaks up. Then they murder their political opponents, no one speaks up. Then they come to murder you for a petty reason, no one is left to speak up for you. How can the great Philippines democracy stand silent to extrajudicial murders?

    • Mr. Jhon correct me if i’m wrong. First drug dealer killing each other that’s why no one speak up. Then it’s not true that there is a killing of muslim. That’s why no one speak out. Then old politicians killing each other for power old goverment is just like a disabled person that’s why no one speak up. Now new goverment law is implemented. All criminals are being hunt people are HAPPY and no one is speak up and complain. Those who complain are evil people. Philippines crime rate goes down by 31℅. Can you imagine?

    • You are correct. My only concern is that now there is no trials. Death squads ate not justice. Let the police capture and arrest the suspected criminals. But then make sure there is a fair trial to know if the suspect is really guilty.

    • I only request honest and fair trials for the suspects. Do you agree with that?

    • now mr john Qualls..the criminals in our country respects nothing ..so they don’t need no respect also..for god sake they are killing innocent people already..why do we need trials if they are guilty ..they will not fight against the the police if they are innocent…our police is protecting their self only..

    • If the Philippines turns to death squads and does not give the accused a fair trial, then I hope for your sake you are not accused of anything.

Bakit May Dios KA pa bang Alam ang sabi KO may malasakit ang Presedenti SA bayan at ikaw mismo ang nag sabi NA si Presente ang puma patay .Alam nating LAHAT NA ang bansa natin ay puno NG drug addict Kaya gugustuhin mo bang pabayaan NA Lang NG Presedenti .

  30. This idiot media.puro negative yung pinapalabas na balita.bat tga media hindi ba kayu mamamayan ng pilipinas bat sa mga dilaw kayu pabor at kawawa ang mahihirp dahil sa di patas na batas sa dating administration.

  31. ganito dapat magbalita, hindi yong negative side lang….

  32. ha..ha..why it become extrajudicial killings? Kasama ba ang media or anyone else at nakita nga ang nangyari? Was there any investigative work done? In other more affluent countries the procedure is the same; when anyone put the police or authorities in harms way then they need to protect themselves. Either them or the people running against the law. Remember there is always two sides in the story at pinaka-madali sa lahat ay yaon magbigay ng comment na imbes makabuti sa ikaaayos ng bansa ay nagiging rallying point ng mga kalaban ng administration. True, most specially in our country na mahirap manghuli ng criminals-imagine papasok ka isang lugar na hindi mo alam ang lugar. Always ang buhay ng ating kapulisan ay laging nasa alanganin something na hindi nakikita ng CHR at mga self righteous official ng bansa. Medyo may bilang nga ang namamatay pero dahil nagkalat na ang kriminal; sa droga lang talamak na. Kapag nag comment ang ibang bansa sobrang ang pagka-play ng media na para bang may kasalanan ang ating authorities; nagpapahiwatig lang ang mga mayaman bansa ng kanilang concern. It’s a matter on the way media should write the news; balance at not political. Better sa lahat ng operation sumama ang media at CHR magkaroon ng tunay na saksi.

    • Mahirap mahuli criminal pag protektado rin,bakit pag gumawa na pabricated na ibedensya sa kalaban madali ang gagaling pa sa computer,kahit sino ituro nagtutoro lang yan mga nahuhuli salita lang,kawawa ang maituro na de naman kasali mga ibvestor daw natatakot baka daw pagkamalan,ok lang kung hinuhuli may warant talaga pati sibilyan vigelant pumapatay

  33. this is what REAL news is all about.. balance and objective.. unlike rappler who is bias and subjective.. selective only of the nega and at the very least one-sided..
