Rodrigo Duterte won May's election in a landslide and assumed his Presidency on Thursday, after a crusade commanded by his vow to end wrongdoing inside six months, promising to do as such by unleashing security powers with shoot-to-kill orders.
On Friday, Duterte encouraged communist rebels to kill the drug traffickers and approached to pursue the one of Asia's longest uprisings to hold their own guerrilla court hearings and afterward complete executions.
New People's Army is known for killing civilians and their summary of execution are illegal.
“Drugs have reached the hinterlands… what if you use your kangaroo courts to kill them to speed up the solution to our problem,” Duterte said.
Late Thursday night, Duterte went to slum area in Manila while in his speech he asked Flilipinos to kill the drug addicts.
“If you know of any addicts, go ahead and kill them yourself,” Duterte said.
“These sons of whores are destroying our children. I warn you, don’t go into that, even if you’re a policeman, because I will really kill you,”he added.
