Senator Panfilo Lacson has called on the Philippine National Police (PNP) not to kill drug pushers but instead run after the big-time drug suppliers in the country.

Lacson, former police chief, tackled the supply-side drug prevention policy on Twitter, saying cops should arrest drug pushers who would eventually reveal the whereabouts about their suppliers.

“Translation: PNP/PDEA – don’t kill the street pushers; arrest them. Make them lead you to the big-time suppliers, then finish the job by engaging those suppliers in a shootout. Get another street pusher and continue the cycle,” he said.
