Free to kill statement
irresponsible: bishop
Duterte concerned about city: mayor

Two Negros bishops aired their dismay yesterday over President Rodrigo Duterte’s order for controversial police officer, Lt. Col. Jovie Espenido, who was assigned to Bacolod City this week, to start killing.

The bishops stressed that only God has the right to take life away.

In his speech at the 45th Philippine Business Conference and Expo at The Manila Hotel in Manila Thursday, Duterte said Bacolod is badly hit by drugs so he told Espenido “Go there and you are free to kill everybody… Go, start killing them.” moremoremore
