Philippines’ President: I Love Personally Killing People!


Enjoyed the video ladies check these swimsuits out

“…I would just patrol the streets, looking for trouble also. I was really looking for a confrontation so I could kill.” Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

"It is the first such admission he has made since becoming president in June, but echoes comments he made in 2015.

He ran the southern city for two decades, earning a reputation for cutting crime, and criticism for allegedly supporting death squads.

Mr Duterte was speaking to business leaders at the presidential palace on Monday, before an overseas trip.

It is the latest in a series of controversial and sometimes contradictory comments by Mr Duterte.

"In Davao I used to do it personally. Just to show to the guys [police] that if I can do it why can't you," he said.

"And I'd go around in Davao with a motorcycle, with a big bike around, and I would just patrol the streets, looking for trouble also. I was really looking for a confrontation so I could kill."

In 2015, he admitted killing at least three men suspected of kidnapping and rape in Davao.

The comments have been condemned by human rights group Amnesty International, which has called on him to put an immediate end to the killings.

"The climate of impunity in the Philippines has intensified even further since President Duterte began his brutal crackdown on suspected drug users and dealers in July, with a wave of unlawful killings claiming more than 5,000 lives across the country," said Rafendi Djamin, the group's director for South East Asia and the Pacific.”*

      Trump likes him and likes what he’s doing, he’s said so. That…bodes well.

      I kill (or at least killed when I could see well enough to aim the gun) and
      eat animals. Not humans, mind you but deer, elk (I guess technically a type
      of deer but most mention them separately), moose, bear, squirrel and
      various edible birds. Does that make me like Duterte who essentially
      sanctions the killing of drug dealers (who directly kill no one)? I think
      not unless he also cooks and eats those drug dealers for supper and tells
      his co-conspirators to do likewise.

      Both would have been impossible short of a military coup by Bush Jr
      (thankfully he didn’t go that route). We have a two term limit on
      Presidents and Cheney didn’t want the job. If Cheney had run he probably
      would have won (not that I am a fan of his likely economic policies
      although I think his foreign policy would have been much better for the
      world than Obama’s). He also would have had his heart failure and
      transplant during his term in office — leaving the VP (at least it would
      have likely NOT been Sarah “hockey mom” Palin) to run the country through
      most of his first term.

      I don’t agree, Anthony. Iraq needed to be taken over and governed by the
      US once they proved they could not do the job themselves. ISIS would not
      exist today under a Cheney Presidency — he would have bombed them out of
      existence, saving hundreds of thousands of innocent lives in the process
      from the war ISIS has perpetrated on the Iraqi and Syrian people.

    • Posted by Anthony Barat, at Reply

      ISIS came into being in Iraq when Bush and Cheney were in charge, and moved
      into Syria during of the chaos caused by the Syrian revolutions during the
      Arab Spring. ISIS did not create the war in Syria. They took advantage of
      the instability there from the civil war…they also took advantage of the
      instability in Iraq caused by the invasion masterminded by Cheney,
      Rumsfeld, Wolfawitz, Bolton and the rest of the Neo-con think tanks. So,
      I’m sorry, but I cannot see how Cheney could have made anything better
      there when he was a huge part of the reason for the problems in the first

      +Deus Dex I don’t know if your issue is ideological or chromosomal in
      nature; so let me try to put it in a language you might understand:

      People have been saying that blacks don’t act right for centuries. Blacks
      have been endeavoring to act right for centuries. Your insistence that
      black people act right is centuries old. There is no statistical
      correlation between black people acting right and their treatment. In fact,
      there’s a negative correlation.

    • Posted by mrbadguysan, at Reply

      +Deus Dex​ you don’t actually believe the nonsense you’re peddling. If you
      did, you’d be at a loss as to the current situation, as the majority of
      black people actually do act like Asian people in the way you’re insisting
      they do.

    • Posted by PerkyObama, at Reply

      +mrbadguysan implying blacks were the only oppressed group, ignore Russian
      serfs, the Irish or the Chinese genetics totally has nothing to do with it

    He wants to kill drug addicts? Then why not go after big pharma. They make
    billions selling legal heroin.

    • Posted by mharris1270, at Reply

      If cannabis would work for a person he should be able to use it. My (now
      retired) former doctor actually prescribed pot for people, I asked if the
      stuff was actually medically useful and surprisingly to me he said it was
      but not for my type of back injury (and that he had prescribed it himself).
      Therefore I am stuck using “prescription heroin” which is actually not
      heroin but usually morphine, hydromorphone, hydrocodone or oxycodone with a
      few doctors also prescribing methadone. What I am taking works well enough
      for me so far so I will continue to use it as long as I can get my doc to
      prescribe it and it continues to do its job.

    • Posted by Jerry Santerva, at Reply

      Kevin Montrond this reporting is half truth, they not done there facts.
      heroin is not epidemic in Philippines, it’s methamphetamine. Also drug
      trade gone to a level of narco politics. This kind of drug is very
      dangerous that could destroy future generations. If only cannabis was
      epidemic in Philippines Pres. Duterte wouldn’t mind. Heroin and
      Methamphetamine are very deferent type of drugs. Heroin will not be a
      problem, maybe the cocaine is potential but not affordable. Cocaine and
      Methamphetamine are same type.

    • Posted by 골드로저, at Reply

      +dollarznc​ your a psychopath! You exaggerates things. Pres. Duterte is
      building giant rehabs for drug addicts and giving free healthcare and
      medicines for poor people. Those who died in drug war are the one who did
      not stop from drug business.

    You guys are too soft on Duterte. The man is despicable.

    • Posted by mharris1270, at Reply

      Chrizelda, I don’t support summary execution of people for drug offenses
      without trial but you have a lot of balls stating that publicly living in
      that country. If he supports summary execution for drugs he probably
      supports summary execution for speaking out against him, too. I wish you
      the best of luck and hope you aren’t imprisoned or killed for your comment.
      It pains me to say that but I would rethink making such comments publicly
      in the future as long as Duterte is running the show there.

  8. Posted by UCFTyler, at Reply

    I think what Duterte is trying to say is that he doesn’t just enforce the
    law, he IS the law. He is judge, jury, and executioner, HE IS…. Judge

      Its not like Mexico. Drug dealers in Philippines don’t have huge militias
      with military grade hardware. Also Philippines has gun control laws and
      don’t live next to US.Instead they live next to other countries with gun
      control. So pretty much only military has such weapons.

    • Posted by Blade Strikes, at Reply

      Because Mexico isn’t trying to win the drug war, they have the combined
      millitary power to exterminate all of them but they can’t do it because of
      “human rights”.

    • Posted by Joe McDonald, at Reply

      Blade Strikes I don’t think Mex millitary will be committing suicide any
      time soon. The drug cartels are the millitary, and police, and Government.

    • Posted by lumina mentari, at Reply

      +Swissair Guh OF COURSE DUMMY, that’s what happens in every dictatorship
      and that’s why many countries start a dictatorship. But that pressure will
      boil and spill at one point or another and like any dictatorship it will
      fail and create a big mess that you need to clean. This policy will result
      a great division in Philippines. All of those families of the dead will
      realized how cruel this policy is and those who are murdered as casualties
      will fight back, it never ends well. I study conflict for years, expect a
      never ending civil war like Mexico, or a blow over later like most
      dictatorship in South East Asia.

    • Posted by Geoff Jones, at Reply

      Swissair Guh yes, police states have less crime, in a police state the
      criminals are all state actors so crime goes unpunished. get it? how much
      liberty will you trade for a feeling of security? how many people have to
      die so you feel better?

      crime dropped because it is not reported, moron.

      Actually Mexico isn’t a dictatorship. Their election process is organized
      strikingly similar to the US’s other than not having an electoral college.

    I’m struggling to understand the logic behind “slaughtering” drug addicts.
    Is it because he thinks these poor people are self-injurious, and, hence,
    they are immoral because of it? So he kills them in order to protect them?
    That sounds like Governor DAPL of North Dakota.

    • Posted by Hej Svej, at Reply

      @Jonathan Seale I think the reasoning behind killing “drug addicts” is that
      he want to kill all poor drug addicts that dont have a job, dont contribute
      to society and comit crimes to support their drug habbits. The reason for
      this is because he see them as a burden to socitey that on top of that
      contribute to criminal drug dealing gangs that plague the Philippines. I
      dont think he search the homes of “normal people” and kill them if he find
      some weed if that is what you are thinking.

      +Hej Svej Them being poor justifies genocide?

      +Blade Strikes Get educated on the term.

      It doesn’t have to be a specific group to be labeled as that. Saddam killed
      148 people in the war crime he was executed for. I’m pretty sure Duterte’s
      regime has killed way more than that.

      Mass murder is mass murder.
