They could be kidnapped, robbed, killed, and then dumped by the police even! All the police have to do is say they suspected drug smuggling and it becomes part of the war on drugs that Duterte loves.

Why not bump them all off end end this standoff.

Only Durante can give the order as these people are the scourge of his country and would not accept his peace offer . When given it

The Abu Sayyaf kidnap gangs who beheads their captives are no longer afraid of the police because they know Dr. Agnes Callamard and the human rights commission will protect them if they are captured.

In the Philippines right now police are killed by drug syndicates and criminals but the media will not print that as news.

But if one Abu or drug people are killed in a firefight then it will be headline news bannered as extrajudicial killings.

Hiro: "But if one Abu or drug people are killed in a firefight then it will be headline news bannered as extrajudicial killings."

Hogwash. The killing of innocents are being bannered as extrajudicial killings, and also suspect killings when the person had no reason to "commit suicide" in the police station suddenly, and coincidentally enough all their money went missing.

Show me a single example of what you just said with Abu Sayyaf members, Hiro. ONE example.

",,,,and it becomes part of the war on drugs that Duterte loves."

So you're saying the Philippine police are the ones kidnapping and beheading foreign tourists on Palawan? That's quite an accusation.

A shame. Spent two month on Palawan. It was paradise then. I was the only tourist at the underground cave.

You seem very much familiar with what is going on in my country. By the way, It's President DUTERTE.

As a person that visited the country a few times, I find that veeeeery unlikely, now if you are a drug dealer and a radical Islamist, that might be a different story.
