Vice President Leni Robredo calls on the police to intensify investigations and to establish urgent steps to stop the recent spate of killings.

"Nitong mga nakaraang linggo at buwan, kaliwa’t kanan ang balita ng patayan. Tila wala na itong pinipili, mula sa mga pari, mga kawani at opisyal man ng pamahalaan, hanggang sa mga tambay at kabataan. Nakababahala kung iniisip na ng iba nating mga kababayan na pangkaraniwan na ang ganitong karahasan sa ating lipunan. Papayag ba tayong tuluyang maghari ang dahas sa ating bayan?" Robredo says.

"Huwag nating hayaang humantong sa sukdulan ng kaguluhan ang kalagayan ng ating bayan. Sa panahon na ito, ang ating nagkakaisang boses ang panlaban natin sa kultura ng karahasan at patayan. Sa ating mga salita at gawa, ipakita natin ang tunay na mukha ng Pilipino: mapagkalinga, hindi marahas; may pagpapahalaga sa buhay ng kapwa, at hindi sa pagkitil nito."
