Philippines to cancel Landing's $1.5b casino project - Duterte's spokesman

I’ll have you killed!’ Duterte scolds 100+ corrupt Philippines cops brought before him

"There will be no casinos outside of what are existing here", Duterte said in his speech during the 117th Anniversary of the Philippine National Police (PNP) at Camp Crame in Quezon City.

"When your life is in danger, you stick to the law, never mind the idiots about the human rights, they can not help you". But I will be here. I will never allow you to go to jail. He told the police to justly do their duties and responsibilities as workers of government in charge of the enforcement of the law.

In particular, concerned PNP officers who requested anonymity, expressed alarm over the increasing number of cases on the involvement rookies bearing the rank of Police Officer 1 to such crimes. And I will see to it that the lawyer will defend you on the principles of performance of duty or self-defense. "Both are grounds for a criminal exemption", the President said.

Hearing those strong words from a very upset PRRD while addressing a group of rogue cops accused of various crimes ranging from kidnapping to extortion and illegal drugs, I could feel the hurt and anger of someone who gave it all but got back what he does not deserve. "Double the hate because you are in government service and you do drugs".

On the eve of the Malacanang confrontation on Tuesday, police reported that a retired policeman included in Duterte's "narcolist" was shot and killed on Monday in a "shootout" during a sting operation with anti-narcotics agents in suburban Valenzuela City, Metro Manila. Our police should have a good reputation.

Duterte said his administration has done a lot to improve the welfare of the policemen such as the 100 percent increase on their net take home pay. The public respect them highly. "You are useless to me. Criticisms for -- lalo na 'yung napulitika, they can not accept defeat", Duterte said in his speech during the 117th anniversary celebration of the police service in Camp Crame, Quezon City.

In one instance, Duterte admitted he was tempted to punish and flog the erring officers but he didn't do so because of retired military chief general Eduardo Ano, the acting chief of the Department of Interior and Local Government and Director General Oscar Albayalde who were beside him.
