We must fortify police presence and visibility inside the streets, like the things they're doing in New York,” Rosales said of New York City - which includes one of several lowest crime prices in the U.S. Since the start off of President Rodrigo “Rody” Duterte’s administration, there was a spate of vigilante killings of suspected drug lords, pushers and users. Each Duterte and Bato have already been criticized for publicly supporting executions as being a approach to eliminate crime. There has also been an increase in drug criminals obtaining killed in genuine police operations throughout the country given that Bato took over as head on the PNP.

Those who have surrendered towards the police have already been supplied rehabilitation and option livelihood by neighborhood government officials.
“This aspect of the campaign is commendable and we congratulate you considering that this can be the initial time that it seems that users and pushers have volunteered to surrender en masse,” Rosales described.

Duterte also not too long ago expressed his thought that shabu addicts are beyond rehabilitation and redemption
