    Do you think that extra killings is justifiable?

    Since Rodrigo Roa Duterte has been elected as the president of the Republic of the Philippines, extra judicial killings become the hottest issue in the country.

    In his first two weeks service in the government, more than 100 suspected drug dealers had been killed.

    As of August 2016, 900 drug suspects were killed, 1160 were killed outside police operation and sums up into 2160 drug related deaths. (Rappler, 2016: Suspected drug lords killed under Duterte government)

    I dont know, but drugs is prohibited, and they broke the law, and there's justifiable consequences for such. Philippine government and previous officials hav already been lenient enough to give leeway to such crimes, in a way because even police and officials are in to it... Justifiable? Yes. Would you rather wait those addicts would kill innocent people in order to convict them and kill them? If you're willing to exchange innocent lives for these sinful souls, then there's something wrong with human rights.

    Ridiculous.  Every human being deserves to be treated fairly and to be found guilty/not guilty within the judicial system.  These people aren't getting that.  It is not a luxury, it is a human right.

    From what I understand illegal drug trade has indeed gone down by a lot already, but at what cost?  People can kill other people and be excused on the basis of saying "they were a drug dealer/user" without providing any evidence that would hold up in a court of law.  That's absolutely terrifying.  Imagine the room for someone being killed due to a misunderstanding or a lie.  This government would make me feel way more unsafe than drug addicts would, without a question.

    Even if someone gets it "right" and shoots an addict dead, there is no way in the world you would get me to agree that an addict deserves to die for simply being an addict.  That POV severely lacks empathy and understanding of addiction.

    Sad and scary all around.
