Yep. There’s the kind of headline you never typically see from me. But I saw the article I’m about to tell you about, and I just couldn’t help but see that there’s at least one Filipino who won’t do something stupid because he knows he’ll do some bad, bad shit.
I’m talking about Mayor Rodrigo Duterte, the Mayor of Davao, and commander-in-suspect of the infamous “Death Squads”. Sure, Davao is a pretty safe city, I hear (never been there), but people suspected of crime just seem to go missing a lot. Maybe not all of those people were actually guilty? It’s not for me to say. But here’s what he said in response to the Human Rights Commission based in NYC:
“To all the bleeding hearts of the US-based crime watch: you want a taste of justice, my style? Come to Davao City, Philippines, and do drugs in my city. I will execute you in public.”
But what I CAN say is that there’s been a group of people who’ve been wanting him to run for President in 2016. Unfortunately for them, he had this to say:
“I do not covet the position. I do not want to be president. I do not want to kill people so do not elect me as president.”
Now THAT is a Filipino using a brain cell ahead of time! Sure, we can come up with a million Filipinos that are really just taking up valuable oxygen, but we’re intelligent enough to let evolution sort them out. This guy apparently just wants to speed up the process, but on a local level.
So hats off to Rodrigo here, for stopping himself before turning the Failippines into an even bigger embarrassment than it already is.
