The survey commissioned by the Dangerous Drugs Board estimates that 4.8 million Filipinos aged 10-69 years old used illegal drugs at least once in their lives. Meanwhile, 715,393 people have surrendered under Project TokHang. 53,091 of them drug pushers and 662,302 admitting to using illegal drugs.
In a 42-minute speech laced with profanities, President-elect Rodrigo Duterte told a crowd of about 10,000 that he wanted to be honest about how he world address the problem of illegal drugs. Apart from the iron-hand approach to the war on drugs, Duterte will have to offer that network an attractive alternative to a life of crime. He said that the deaths that have come with his vigorous campaign to solve the country’s drug problem are justified.
He told the audience, which included anti-crime activists, that there would be no justice for those who are on the wrong side of the law. ‘Life is never fair’.
“I cannot simply define justice that is fair to all. Life is never fair. But if you start, you who is the cause of the cause is the cause of them all. Forget about God. Forget about the laws the laws of men. You think of the one universal equation. Who gave you the right to cook shabu? Sell it to my sons and daughters and make them crazy. Who? ”
Duterte launched a high-profile anti-drug campaign when he assumed office on June 30, and has named some police officials, local executives, judges, prosecutors, and a senator as being allegedly involved in the illegal drug trade.
On the First Picture you can see he’s raising his right hand as if he was taking an oath.
“I am committed by my oath of office. Those victim, they did not start the process that turned out to be bloody.”
A lawyer and a long-term mayor of Davao City, Duterte believes these addicts are better off dead because they would eventually commit crimes to sustain their addiction.
And as for me, I am supporting our President on this campaign. My fellow citizen, think it twice when will you want to start this campaign? when will you support this official who just want is to make a peaceful and less crime country. When the time came where one of the family member became a victims of a crime who related to drugs? Then do not wait for it. Make a move and the only action that government want us to do, is to give them trust, time and support for the action they will be doing.
