Duterte to rogue cops: ‘Pag ganun kayo nang ganun, papatayin ko talaga kayo

Security & Defense

President Rodrigo Duterte vented his ire to police officers who allegedly committed crimes during a presentation of erring policemen held at Malacañang Palace on August 7. Among the presented cops were were the three police officers detained for alleged involvement in recent kidnap for ransom and extortion cases in Taguig City, where a couple was reportedly held for ransom by the police.

Other cops were accused of involvement in illegal activities such as kidnapping, rape, robbery and extortion, and illegal drug trade. Some are also facing various charges such as non-appearance in court duties, grave misconduct, neglect of duty, irregularities in the performance of duty, and performing unlawful arrest.

“Alam mo sa totoo lang, prangkahan ko ngayon ang buong Pilipinas. ‘Pag ganun kayo nang ganun, p***** i** papatayin ko talaga kayo. Masiguro ninyo ‘yan. Wala na akong magawa sa inyo, mga ulol kayo,” the President said.

“I will review your cases. Kayong may mga kasalanan na sindikato sa droga, sindikato sa corruption, meron akong special unit habang buhay bantayan kayo at ‘pag nagkamali kayo nang konti, sabihin ko patayin kayo,” he said.

“Bakit kayo pumasok sa police? Anong nakain ninyo na – itong police, para lang ito sa mga tao may pagmamahal sa bayan at gusto makapag-silbi sa kapwa tao nila,” he added. “Bakit kayo napasok dito mga animal kayo? Para naman kayong – p**** i** ang mga kamukha aso na eh.”

“Alam mo, totoo lang mabuti na lang maraming tao, may opisyal dito hindi niyo – kung hindi, kanina ko pa kayo pinagpapalo ng,” Duterte said.

“Kayong doon sa may kaso, huwag na kayong mag-bail. Huwag ninyo akong sisihin. Huwag na kayong magpiyansa, magtiis kayo diyan sa loob. Mas safer ang Pilipinas kung nasa loob kayo. O kung hindi, patay kayo,” he added.
