It's a free for all enterprise for the criminals at this time. Kung ako, if I had just the plan...Sabi ko, sabi ko sa military kapag nakita ninyo, pasabugin mo na. Maski nag-surrender yan, may white, white flag. Pang-giyera lang yan, hindi yan pang-kriminal, pasabugin mo. Show no mercy to them because they're not doing any mercy to us anyway. Bakit ako...Iyan ang problema.

What's your reaction to President Duterte's rants against UN officials?
Are you satisfied with the executive branch's efforts vs extrajudicial killings?
Should late President Ferdinand Marcos be buried a hero?
Are you in favor of the revival of mandatory ROTC?
Duterte told the military to show surrendering criminals 'no mercy.' Do you agree?
