“MAGDASAL lang sila na hindi ako mabuang.”
President Rodrigo Duterte expressed his exasperation with the enormity of the drug problem by saying he could immediately finish them (drug lords) off if he lost his mind.
“Magdasal lang sila na hindi ako mabuang (go crazy). Kasi kapag ako ang nabuang, ako na magdala ng M16. May mga ano lang ako siguro, may dalawang bandolier, ubos lahat iyan. Tapos ang problema natin,” Duterte said in his speech before the 9th Infantry Division in Pili, Camarines Sur Wednesday evening.
“Itong mga p—— i—, ginawa talaga tayong loko-loko,” Duterte said, pointing out he could end the problem by using a rifle.
Duterte touted the significant reduction of supply of illegal drugs in the communities, pointing out that one now has to go to the country’s prisons including the New Bilibid Prisons in Muntinlupa if only to procure the stuff.
“Ngayon wala na masyado sa labas. But if you want to buy shabu, kung magnegosyo ka, kailangan pupunta ka muna sa mga penal colonies, pati diyan sa Muntinlupa. Totoo iyan,” Duterte said.
“Ako abogado, hindi ako nagsisinungaling,” he added.
Duterte said the drug menace is now being addressed especially with the deployment of Special Action Force commandos and communication jammers at the NBP.
“Ang aming assessment ngayon kaya lalagyan ng jammer. Kita mo, mag-gastos pa tayo. Tanggalin ko muna iyong mga ano, lagyan ko ng SAF (Philippine National Police-Special Action Force),” he said.
“The good news is that we have significantly reduced the supply of illegal drugs in the country by some 80 to 90 percent,” according to Philippine Natinal Police chief director general Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa.
