Duterte mulls creating ‘Duterte death squad’ against NPA assassins

Security & Defense

Lamenting the assassinations of troops from the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) and Philippine National Police (PNP) perpetrated by NPA assassins known as Sparrow (Special Partisan Unit), President Rodrigo Duterte has raised the idea of creating his own death squad.

“If you are in a place in the house or attending parties like that, be careful because you are trailed. They are all over. Kaya one of these days, I’ll be forced also to create my own sparrow,” President Duterte said during his visit at Camp Rajah Sikatuna in Bohol for turnover of AFP-PNP housing units.

“I will match their talent also for assassinating people. May armas ‘yan sigurado. Iyon ang balak ko pero ito, coded ‘yan. Kaya ikaw, do not allow your back na open,” he noted.

“I’m trying to make peace with them, ayaw nila. Tapos pinagpapatay ‘yung mga pulis pati sundalo ko,” he said.

“Ah ‘di – ngayon ang kulang talaga is ang sparrow ko rin. Iyan lang man – diyan lang man sila makalamang. Sa bukid (bundok), fight man ‘yan. So mag-create ako ng sparrow. Duterte Death Squad against the sparrow,” he added.

He said that there is no problem because NPA assassins are our enemy. (Wala may problema na kay kalaban man nato sila. Nganong tago-tago man ta?)
