    Body count rises as new Philippines president calls for drug addicts to be killed

    [​IMG]

    NEWLY-INSTALLED Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte has reiterated his tough stance on crime by urging the public to not only kill drug dealers, but addicts as well.

    His remarks came barely a day after he was sworn in as the country’s 16th president in Manila on Thursday, Vice reported.

    Speaking to a crowd of 500 in a Manila slum, Duterte said: “If you know of any addicts, go ahead and kill them yourself as getting their parents to do it would be too painful.”

    He added that, “These sons of whores are destroying our children.”

    After claiming victory in the general elections in May, the former Davao city mayor said medals would be given to citizens who shot and killed drug dealers.

    His words look to have been put into action since he took presidency as bodies of drug suspects piled up over the last few days.

    According to PhilStar, 18 suspected drug pushers were killed in separate incidents over the weekend, while another 952 confessed drug users and pushers, fearing for their safety, surrendered themselves to authorities in the past two days.

    Three suspects were killed by policemen in Duterte’s hometown of Davao and another five suspects were shot in Quaipo.

    Lawmen in Caloocan also killed a former policemen and suspected drug pusher.

    One man was shot in Tondo, Manila on Sunday and another in San Pedro, Laguna. Another six suspects were killed in Quezon province.

    The latest deathtoll brought the number of drug suspects killed to 30 after Duterte was sworn in as president on June 30, PhilStar reported.

    Was talking to my philipino colleague about this guy, man it's an absolute nightmare for them right now. This guy is a real psycho. Sexist + racist + classist + money hungry. Literally everything bad in a country.

    Brexit and this guy's election are some good case studies for Americans to understand what Donald Trump is capable of doing to Americans.

    People who vote for Trump is more of a vote to **** DC than a vote for the man.

    If you just merely hate DC and like neither candidate, your non vote is just making the influence of the crazies stronger.

    Wow. Pretty extreme, but I am interested to see what comes of this. The city this guy was in charge of before was the safest city in the world.

    Yeah, sanctioned wholesale killing of people all over the country would be nice.

    RIP to you though. I believe you're on drugs and as such will murder you.

    Before I posted that, I thought he was referring to drug dealers like in his past campaign. I know hear that the drug 'addicts' have to go to. Hopefully Manny Pacquoai can do something about it.

    Doesn't Thailand sentence drug dealers to death and have forced rehab for addicts? Does it work?

    The difference is that Filipino citizens, for whatever reason, are susceptible to carrying out this kind of bizarre mandate.

    The European Union withdrawal seems to have some market and trade effects, speculative or otherwise, but it was not nearly as insidious nor will it be as destructive as whatever this is.

    Davao is not the safest or 4th safest city in the world. That claim is based only on the crowd based submission on Numbeo.com. This claim is not supported by any sort of reputable data.
