how does someone even get into the drug dealing business?

When he said "human rights cannot be used to destroy my country," I cringed. Due process is no more. People invoke it when convenient. People disregard it when convenient. I actually once thought that I don't want to live in this country anymore. But we are not Filipinos only when convenient. This is all the more reason to be here and watch the government closely.

Definitely cringeworthy. But, to be absolutely fair, we've been straddling the line on human rights and due process for quite a while: Think police letting arrested suspects get beaten by bystanders while they are being led to the transport vehicle or letting the victim's family "meet" the suspect so they can punch and kick him before they put him behind bars - and at the police station, no less.

My itch with Duterte is that he's basically destroying the progress we've made in the last decade toward being a little more civilized, a little more mature as a society. We've been here before - this vigilantism and mob rule - back in the '90s and early 2000s. It did jack squat, but here we are again.

i swear, it was so easy to get into the drugs in the Philippines that even police officers become drug dealers = - =;
previous administrations did not give a shit and let it get this bad.
that's why I don't really care about the people who died in Duterte's term, since it seems like the most appropriate punishment for them.
plus at least Duterte's actually doing something . _.

isn't it possible for some people to get into it due to financial instability? (there's also greed, but benefit of the doubt and all that).

mhm. those experiencing poverty in the Philippines often result to solvents/drugs so they won't "feel hungry" and could "survive through the day" . _ . it's sad.

he asked, and I just answered his question.
I am not an asshole to give him such a vague answer as "isn't that just common sense."

your quote is a waste of a notification, and my reply to you is a waste of my time.
ugh.

What a shame Filipinos are nice people. The ones in the Slums are some of the hardest workers who give any and everything to feed their family. What a shame to all of the beautiful people of Manila. No good will come of this except making the poor situation worse then it is and i don't know whats worse then what some of them already go through. There's you kids in the Slums who would love just one chance to be able to afford to go to school you would think this guy would tackle those issues instead of ruining lives even more.

You misunderstand me i was asking you why did he have to ask that.

i would have replied to him but my logic was to just follow on the comment reply.

No one said you are an asshole if anything you are quite the opposite for giving him an answer i just don't understand how his question needed to be asked as to me it seems to be common sense.


:c sorry you misunderstood me once again my terrible wording and explanation of things annoys someone D:

My girlfriend is from the Philippines and she was saying that the Philippines needs this. There is so much crime and the poverty just adds to the crime. Corruption is on a large scale too. The rich build giant walls around the slums so they don't see them from their mansions.

Please without a ounce of combat training your average citizen is no more protected by his or her firearm then a medieval peasant was by his baslard when facing a fully armoured knight. If you want a populace armed to the teeth at least do what Sweden and Russia do and make military service compulsory. That way not only do you have armed populace but also a competently trained one less likely to get killed off by their own stupidity or incompetence.


ROFLMAO, ohmigod that's gold. Every time you churn out a message I get a chuckle, but you couldn't have possibly phrased that one more ineptly. Seriously. Could. Not. Have.

The fact that you specifically picked a baselard of all things. The long knife specifically associated with (and named after) Basel and the Swiss confederacy. You know... those peasant citizen armies who consistently kicked the ever-living crap out of every professional army they faced from the 1300s on?

I mean... bruh, do you even history?

You are consistent, ignorant, arrogant, racist comedic gold.

In discriminate killing is bad. Drugs are bad. Kill the drug lords by all means, go ahead, but to kill everyone doing, or selling drugs is not good. Many addicts are self medicating, because there's a lack of health care, they cant afford it, or in the sadist cases they don't know there self medicating. They just know it makes them feel better.
