PRRD: "Drug-war victims, worthless pieces of dead animals"


For President Rodrigo Duterte, dead drug suspects are nothing but worthless pieces of dead animals.

"Drugs, it's not just because of a dead body there. For me if you ask me on national television that idiot there who's dead, who's a drug pusher, he's just a piece of carcass. Carcass lang 'yan sa akin," he said during a speech in Davao City on Sunday night.

Duterte's campaign against illegal drugs has left more than 4,000 killed in various police operations, while human rights groups peg the number beyond 12,000.

Since taking office on June 30, 2016, Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte has carried out a “war on drugs” that has led to the deaths of over 12,000 Filipinos to date, mostly urban poor. At least 2,555 of the killings have been attributed to the Philippine National Police. Duterte and other senior officials have instigated and incited the killings in a campaign that could amount to crimes against humanity. SOURCE: https://www.hrw.org/tag/philippines-war-drugs
