44 WarshTheDavenport Trump's a big Duterte fan. Said he's doing an "unbelievable job on the drug problem."
64 ThatJackUp *Another report detailed the killing of children by police officers. Duterte has referred to the children killed during the drug operation as "collateral damage".* Holy shit... I'd have to go full __Law Abiding Citizen__ on their ass and show them what a "vigilante" *really* does if my child was killed and called collateral damage.
35 ConsistentBan Narcissistic psychopath as president - what could go wrong?

13 perkel666 >In a speech before the Philippine Senate on Wednesday, Antonio Trillanes said the Duterte administration's own report shows 3,967 "drug personalities" have been killed after allegedly resisting arrest during police operations between July 1, 2016 and November 27, 2017. >Another 16,355 homicide cases - from July 1, 2016 to September 30, 2017 - have been classified as "under investigation". UPFRONT: Is Duterte's drug war undermining the rule of law? (12:32) >The report also said 118,287 drug personalities have been arrested, and 1,308,078 others surrendered to authorities during the same period. Before we start. Philippines is nation of around 106 mln people. With very low gdp and very high on crime index. So once we establish those we can move to stats: - 3967 people killed by police while resisting arrests, seems pretty ok for heavy handed policy and relative size of population. - 16,355 homicide cases. Aka total people killed not related to arrests. For 100mln people nation it is a lot not but not that much. - 118,287 drug personalities have been arrested. Slightly high. - 1,308,078 others surrendered to authorities during the same period. This is true shocker. Looks like policies work. Overall it looks like his plan works. Which explains really why he has support of population. edit: Mexico had with 125mln population last year 23000 homicides. US had 300mln+ population and 16 000 homicides in 2016 and that is well devloped nation with barely any organized crime compared to mexico or philipines. fun fact: Japan in 2016 with 125+mln population had about 500+ homocides...
3 AndyDap It's just the wrong way to do things but is it making a difference? Are things better? Or is there no impact? Or, is drug use just as bad but hidden a bit deeper?
3 drawkbox Drugs might be bad for your health and maybe even kill you, so to save you they will kill you outright in the Philippines.
