De Lima Blames Drug War For The Death of a 5-Year Old, Says Duterte Encourages Killings

Senator Leila De Lima again condemns the drug war for the recent death of a 5-year old kid put in an eco-bag in Sta. Cruz, Laguna. According to De Lima, the kid’s death shows the failure of drug war in the country. 

De Lima states, 

“Saan po ba humantong ang bansa makalipas ang tatlong taon sa puwesto ng rehimeng Duterte? Libo-libo na ang pinaslang ng War on Drugs ng kanyang gobyerno, pero bakit patuloy pa rin ang mga karumal-dumal na krimen sa lipunan, pati na ang lalong paglubha ng kalakaran ng ilegal na droga?” 

5-year Old Killed By A Drug Addict

The kid was reported missing and was last seen playing outside their house. However, the suspect is identified as Glenn Ford Manzanero who admits the killing and that he was under the influence of shabu at the commission of the crime. 

Blames The Drug War

Senator De Lima asserts that the drug war which started after Duterte took the presidential seat is a mission failed. Such policy has made crimes get worse. The senator worries that keeping mum about the issue will only make things worse. Whereas the government is not being held responsible for the existence of crimes. 

“Patunay lang ito na talagang hindi epektibo ang marahas at madugong polisiya ni Duterte. Nakababahala na sa mga susunod na taon, kapag patuloy na nanahimik at kinunsinte lamang ng ibang mga pinuno ang araw-araw na patayan, ay magpatuloy lamang ang ganitong karahasan at kawalang pananagutan sa bansa.” 

Failed Mission

De Lima encourages the Duterte administration to re-consider the anti-narcotics policy which she described as, 

“has miserably failed to stop suspected drug offenders from committing crimes.”

The senator bravely comments, 

“Sa patuloy na paghihikayat ng Pangulo ng patayan sa ating bayan, mas lalo lang niyang binibigyan ng lakas ng loob ang mga masasamang loob na gumawa ng ganitong karumal-dumal na krimen dahil tila nakatatak na sa isip nila na ‘okay lang pumatay’. Maling-mali!”
