Pres. Duterte: 'I personally killed drug suspects in Davao,'


“I am not a killer. I do not relish or enjoy [seeing] a Filipino sprawled there with all the blood.” This is what Pres. Duterte said as he delivered a speech during The Outstanding Filipino Awards for 2016 held in Malacañang. He also noted that he would never encourage killing drug suspects as he was a religious man, who believes in God and in karma.

However, his statements drastically changed as he addressed businessmen in the Wallace Business forum which was also held in Malacañang. According to him, he used to kill drug suspects personally back in Davao.

“I know it because—I am not trying to pull my own chair—in Davao I used to do it personally. Just to show to the [policemen] that if I can do it, why can’t you?” he said.

“I go around in Davao (on) a big bike and I would just patrol the streets and looking for trouble. I was really looking for an encounter to kill,” he added.

He claims that all 6,000 drug suspects were killed in legitimate drug operation, although reports say that 4,000 of these have been brutally executed by unidentified vigilante groups. Still, Duterte refused to back down.

“If I am afraid [and] stop because of the human rights … sorry, I am not about to do that,” 
“You [want to] arrest me? Oust me? Go ahead,” he said.
“So fine. Oust me? Good. Assassinate me? Better. I have this migraine every day [anyway],” he added.

He also addressed the Catholic Churches who had been criticizing him and said:

 “Check out your flock and look for the lost sheep.”
“They say, ‘Why did Duterte have to kill them? Why not just send them to [rehabilitation centers]?’ Son of a bitch. They did not know I have nowhere to go.”

“If you want to help me, make available your houses. To the rich people, those who have mansions with four, five or six rooms, give up one of the rooms. Adopt an addict and see what happens,” he said, which drew laughter from the audience.

“So to the bleeding hearts, if you really want to stop the violence, do it. You adopt an addict and share the love [with] your fellowmen,” he noted.

“It’s for you to understand the perdition of a drug addict. If you want, I will start with those from Tondo. Choose what you want, boy or girl. It’s just the same [anyway]. If they go crazy, they will stab you dead. It leads to a massacre. Do you think it’s that easy?” he added.
