President Duterte has introduced plans to “arm civilians” to enhance the federal government’s marketing campaign towards the crime and terrorism and grant them pardon if convicted of any killing.
“I intend to also arm the civilians,” the President stated in a press convention throughout his go to to Bohol the place the navy not too long ago clashed with Abu Sayyaf terrorists.
“I also encourage civilians to kill kasi dead or alive man yan, may reward. Pero mas gusto ko dead kasi yung alive, may pakain pa ako, ma’am. Magastos pa yun,” stated Duterte who held a safety briefing with native officers.
If a citizen kills a terrorist, Duterte urged the particular person to come ahead and promised to defend and pardon him.
“Kapag nakapatay ka na, you just go to the police and make the report and state your truth. Walang problema, I will take care of you and pardon you for whatever (case?),” he stated.
