President Duterte threatens to kill corrupt mayors
President Duterte has warned new mayors, they had better not be involved in drug trafficking and corruption, or he will kill them himself.
President Duterte is putting his mayors on notice.
LOS ANGELES, CA (California Network) -- President Duterte warned over 200 new political appointees and mayors they should quit the drug trade if they are involved, or he would kill them.
During a swearing in ceremony in which over 200 mayors and public officials took an oath of office, Duterte explained what he would do to corrupt mayors.
"I will call the mayors, I will lock them in so it's just us. I will really tell them, this list I gave you is this thick. Look for your name there, mayor. If your name is on there... you have a problem, I will really kill you."
Duterte warned the new officials to either make a clean break or he would remove their authority over their police, then strip their security detail. Such a move could be a death sentence.
"I might go down in history as the butcher, it's up to you," President Duterte added.
President Duterte has declared war on drug traffickers and users, who have done much to harm the country. However, his war has many casualties which has caused many, including the Church, to criticize his harsh methods.
It is a president's job to ensure the safety and security of his country, and to eliminate threats that could destroy it. Drugs are a powerful enemy, and they cannot be tolerated. Drugs steal children from their mothers, and they tear husbands and wives apart. While most people condemn the killings, nearly everyone agrees that drug traffickers and pushers must be brought to justice.
Equal to drugs is corruption. Corrupt public officials can destroy a country as quickly as drugs. You may disagree with his tactics, but he has a job, and that is to protect his country and his people.
