Face to face: Duterte tells mayors he’d kill them if he finds out they’re drug protectors

Jan 12, 2017 @ 0:10

President Duterte threatened mayors that he would kill those involved in illegal drug operations or have them killed by their own police escorts during his first meeting with the local executives in Malacanang on Wednesday (Jan. 11, 2017).

Duterte told mayors from Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao that he would order narco-mayors shot dead once his list was validated by authorities.

Sources privy to the meeting said the President expressed his anger over narco-politicians for destroying the country.

He was so mad that he was unable to restrain from cursing in the middle of his speech to the mayors, whom he met in batches based on geographical locations.

“The President minced no words in telling us that he is really serious about his drug war and the message came across to all those present,” one of the mayors said in an interview.

    No need for judges…the Filipino people voted for a president who is the JUDGE, JURY and EXECUTIONER…..the people do not see what this kind of leadership brings. They wanted a strong leader in all aspects. The people do not want democracy, they want a strong man rule who can lead them. I guess democracy is not for us. People want fast results. We tried this before and it did not work….A true leader’s vision should start first by eliminating the CLASS categories that is prevalent in Philippine society – why do we have Class A, Class B, Class C, Class D & Class E? This is the WAR that needs to be fought! This CLASS war needs a leader, not only of strong political will, but with strong character and moral fiber!
