should die, not us'
BY GILBERT BAYORAN

Chief Supt. Conrado Capa. Negros Island police director, yesterday warned drug peddlers and pushers that they will not hesitate to kill them, if they choose to fight them.

“We'll just do our jobs. If they fire back, they will die. So my only rule of engagement, is to survive the engagement. I do not like dead policemen,” Capa, who led the drug testing yesterday, of 100 PRO 18 personnel, said.

Pushers should die, not us, he said.

Capa said the massive manhunt for those engaged in drug peddling and their protectors will start July 1, as they have prepared their target list. .moremoremore
