Close this MANILA, Philippines—The killings have gone on for too long and it’s time to hold those responsible to account.

With this message, Commission on Human Rights (CHR) Chair Leila de Lima is set to open on Monday a public inquiry into a wave of unexplained killings of more than 800 people in Davao City since 1998.

Many of the victims were people purportedly with criminal records, giving rise to suspicions that the killings were the work of the so-called Davao Death Squad (DDS), a shadowy vigilante group.

For De Lima, what is “most alarming … is the growing culture or mentality of public acceptance of the executions.”

My take:

De Lima should be included in the hitlist of Duterte Death Squad. She is meddling with an executive option. Before she opens her mouth about the DDS, she should consider the fact that Davao City is number 1 most livable city in the country today and is also ranked Asia-wide. People like De Lima are the ones that should be shot on sight. Before she landed in the CHR post, she was with the COMELEC. Now pray tell me, is there anyone here who can say anything good about the COMELEC? In the same breath I dare ask: is there anyone here who can say anything good about the CHR? De Lima, before you open your mouth again and meddle in the affairs of Duterte, make sure that you had already done your job from where you draw your salary!

Leave Davao and Duterte alone and let Davaoenos decide their fate!


  1. Could this be the first film about Davao's infamous "death squads?"

  2. They better call DDS with its more appropriate name: Duterte Death Squad


tell me what you think!
