On Duterte’s brutal methods

Standard

“ Loved by many in the Philippines for his confrontational style, the president has lashed out at his critics, labeling the United Nations ‘stupid’ and former US president Barack Obama a ‘son of a whore’. He also announced he personally killed criminals, including throwing one suspect to his death from a helicopter. The Philippine house of representatives approved a version of the death penalty bill this month that will allow the execution of drug convicts by hanging,firing squad, or legal injection ”
