Killing Criminals is Wrong
Don’t you want criminals killed? Perhaps you think that the country will be safer without them. But in some instances, perceived criminals are actually the good ones. The authorities who killed them can be the bad guys. So, peace can never be attained this way. Violent drug war results to nothing but chaos.
Drug Addicts need Rehabilitation
Provoking Statements are Disgusting
Human rights activists surely detest the president’s popularized statements. He vowed to kill drug criminals. Blames the media for writing as heard from him. Citing that he’s just joking and other alibis. The reality is, Duterte is guilty of saying something but means another. Statesmen should know that it’s improper and dangerous to do that.
Stop the Drug-related Crimes without Killings
Devastations of the slain men’s families loom neighborhoods. It traumatizing when witnessing one. This are not scenes in a peaceful and safe country. It is good to stop drugs crime. But can we do it without killing? Killing a criminal will not make you good. It can only make you a human rights violator!
