Duterte Underfire For Schoolboy Execution


Enjoyed the video ladies check these swimsuits out

Philippines Head of state Rodrigo Duterte is dealing with the reaction from those outraged by the implementation of an innocent school child. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, the hosts of The Young Turks, simplify. Tell us exactly what you believe in the comment section listed below.

" A horrifying picture of a school child being dragged to a violent fatality in a filthy alleyway has galvanised the Philippines against a brutal state-led battle on drugs that has eliminated over 12,500 individuals in the in 2014.

For a nation now largely immune to the bloodied remains of claimed small time drug addicts and dealerships dumped on the streets, the visuals reports of the last moments of Kian Delos Santos, 17, that was apparently fired three times by undercover law enforcement agent, have been too much to bear.

His killing last week has united the general public, senior politicians and the Catholic Church into the most substantial move of mass demonstrations considering that Head of state Rodrigo Duterte pushed for a vicious crackdown on medicines after his political election last June.

A lot of the 12,500 casualties have been killed by concealed assassins. An estimated 3,500 have actually been eliminated in police shoot-outs, which police officers frequently declare were self-defence."

      Reon el Nope I’m not an addict. But I know Duterte admitted that he abused Fentanyl… he admitted it himself. And even if i’m in the minority that doesn’t mean that it is wrong to be a light in the murderous dark by adding my voice and protesting about the despicable things the police have done to Kian.

    • Posted by tehmuffinman1859, at Reply

      Reon el Duterte has long said that he would start this war last year during the campaign. That he would kill thousands, and YOU voted or supported him fully knowing of what he meant to do. Many have told you last year that this would happen and still you proudly support him. You tout the law but refuse to give due process when its clearly stated in our laws and the Constitution (except to Polong Duterte) then wash hands when innocents die. Maybe you should try working in the ERs of the hospitals in Manila, Caloocan or QC so you can hear the see the dead for yourself. We see it on a regular basis and in greater numbers these past few weeks leading up to this incident. You might “feel” safer but many of your countrymen are being murdered by people who are supposed to defend them.

    Filipino here, and it is true that our cops are overbearing, arrogant, trigger-happy @$$holes. This war on drugs emboldened them not just to kill drug dealers and addicts but also their personal enemies and then tag them as such. The police is the number 1 law beakers here. They dont even pay fares when in public transport nor follow traffic laws and Duterre made them worse by condoning their behavior. This is what happens when people lack education They elect stupid people into office.

Probably anybody who gets in his way.

      mike lomez Well…hmmm…just this night, a group of students at the ateneo de manila university holding a candle light vigil for Kian were approached by a police car and were asked for their names….*sigh* the students were afraid of course and so they just dispersed.

    • Posted by thecheapbastard, at Reply

      When a Filipino who says something unfavorable about the Philippines is told that he is not a Filipino, that right there, is the problem. If someone doesn’t approve of Duterte, he is automatically for his political rival. Just like Trump, Duterte has his base and to “kill those who destroy” his country is his way of keeping a campaign promise to keep his base. Duterte supporters keep bringing up the past sins of the previous administration to divert attention, just like Trump asking for Hillary to be probed for the Iran Uranium deal. The problem is way beyond political parties now. Government failed and so did religion and education. I’m straining to find things i could be proud of my country. BTW, i campaigned and voted for Duterte.

    The saddest part is that Duterte is no dictator – at least not in the classical sense. He is a democratically elected strongman with tens of millions supporting him throughout the Philippines and beyond.

    • Posted by Rahsaan Footman, at Reply

      Dictators in the ‘classical’ sense have been elected many times over. That is the path to power. They promise to ‘punish’ groups that prevent their country from being the special and supreme place it deserves to be. And people fall for it so often.

    • Posted by Gerald The Seal, at Reply

      Kurtis C. He IS a dictator in the CLASSICAL sense. Text-book Populist Nationalist – just like Trump. But if you put a Populist Nationalist in the apex of government power within a Democracy that is young and is not deeply rooted in the National identity – you dont get a Populist Nationalist leader that is “contained” within the system and its political institutions, instead you get Duterte: a democratically elected Populist Nationalist leader, who has the entire system at his mercy, from the Judiciary, to the Senate, to the media – an elected official that politically weaponizes popularity to usurp the non-partisan instruments and mechanisms of government, for his own purposes and goals. That’s how a Democracy dies – and a Dictatorship is born out of its ashes. And we know where that leads a country, and eventually, the whole world:


    • Posted by Kurtis C., at Reply

      I usually consider dictators to be above democracy – that is, they are not bound by term limits and need not have the support of their people to remain in power indefinitely. He’s a populist, yes, but I don’t think he’s sabotaged Filipino democracy – yet.

    • Posted by PurpleBat, at Reply

      yf0013 Ok first of all, yes, criminals will be criminals and a head of state has to abide the law to stop them. If a president starts killing people, it’s a huge problem and the country loses its democratic values. Also, it’s not like Duterte only kills drug dealers. Just like Erdogan or Kim Jong Un, he kills oppositional politicians and citizens who don’t agree with his policies.

      As for the press, conservative press is in no way harassed as much as liberal press at the moment. Donald calls reporters who do a great job “fake news” because they report on his constant failures. A clear sign of fascism. And it’s already resulted in the death of an anti Nazi protester.

    • Posted by yf0013, at Reply

      So how democratic is to leave drug dealers and murderers protected?
      Assuming you’re a Philippines citizen as well, you’re still alive, no one is killing you nor the hundreds of thousands of citizens who don’t agree with him. So I don’t know what are you talking about.
      As for the Western press, you must be kidding. There’s no more fascist media than your far left friends who invaded the mainstream media all these years.

    • Posted by PurpleBat, at Reply

      yf0013 They aren’t “protected”, that’s simply incorrect. But randomly killing people won’t solve anything. It will make things much worse.
      The left “invading media” is a common alt-right narrative and also incorrect. It’s mean to justify the right’s alternative facts (aka deliberate lies).

    • Posted by yf0013, at Reply

      Ok, let’s put aside your lies.

    While pretentious nobodies like those lose their sleep over some black kid gunned down by cops in America for being a worthless thug or some thug wannabe in the Philippines, the people over there can sleep better at night knowing that Duterte is cleaning up the country of all the subhuman filth…and those promoters of degeneracy, drugs, immorality and thug culture, TYT, can’t stand it. Just like Aesop warned us: “the safeguards of virtue are hateful to those with evil intentions”.

    • Posted by Sodomite Apelings, at Reply

      @EliFrost_ and rose novel
      I’d rather not go to the Philippines since it’s a third world country, hopefully it will change with Duterte in power. But I would gladly go there and I can guarantee you that I won’t be shot by cops because I’m not a thug. I know this seems like a novel concept to you who live in a world where everything a white cop does to a black guy must, by default, be done because of racism and the black guy is a saint, like Saint Skittles was. It must be hard for you to believe but you don’t get in trouble with the law (most of the time) as long as you are not a worthless, drug-addicted subhuman who has contempt for the law.
      If the cops in the Philippines are sometime in the wrong and overreact a little and shoot some innocents….who bloody cares what happens in a banana republic, especially when they shoot far more degenerates than innocents. When you chop wood a few chips will go flying.

    • Posted by Sodomite Apelings, at Reply

      That being a drug addict is a victimless crime is a big lie. Of course he does tremendous harm to everyone around him. Doesn’t the child who ruins his life completely because of this selfish folly cause great harm to his parents? Or the husband and father who takes drugs for his own pleasure, doesn’t he cause great harm to his wife and children? As far as society is concerned, crime tends to follow drugs. Those are worthless individuals who are made lazy by their use of drugs and cease being productive. As if that wasn’t enough they demand money from the tax payers in the form of welfare that they will spend on more drugs. Or so-called addiction programs paid for by the government which involve giving those degenerates methadone, which is another way of mugging the public, since the government mugging the tax payer to subsidize some moron’s addiction isn’t the same (yeah sure) as that drug addict mugging you on an alley, this violence, theft and even murder being once again acts with which they harm society when they run out of cash. In my mind I happen to think that anyone who has such a weak moral fiber as to give in to addiction and also cause great harm to society justly deserves the death penalty. And let it be public and painful too, so he becomes a deterrent for others. Maybe that way some kid will think twice before ruining his life.

The fact that the schoolkids still use textbooks that praise Ferdinand Marcos is bad enough, but the populace is bombarded with daily propaganda under Duterte. There’s rampant corruption on all levels of government and law enforcement. And anyone who tries to stand up to Duterte and his thugs is either jailed or assassinated.

      Isn’t socialism when the government owns everything? When the government owns everything, it has all the power, and so authoritarianism follows. Or an authoritarian regime siezes government, taking all resources by force; which leaves all resources in the power of the government, resulting in pure socialism

    • Posted by Em See, at Reply

      The5armdamput33 It seems socialism has many different meanings, but all have in common the people owning everything. For everyone to own everything, no one person has more say in the matter than another. In order to facilitate this collective ownership and put it into organized action, a government may be created, though it is no requirement of socialism. It is in this case, where there is a government with all the resources, and the will of one person is never greater than the will of the people–in this case, the government–that socialism and authoritarianism is alike.
