    As usual, there goes the San Fil-Ams fighting and unreasonably comparing police officers in their community against the Dutertes war on drugs. As the pendulum swings back and forth, with the law enforcement model on one side and the due process model on the opposite, people should understand (especially Fil-Ams) these possibilities. Due process model as good as it sounds, is to protect the rights of suspects. We see that, but take a look at why prisons are so overcrowded because of that. Those Filipino politicians like Delima, Lagman and Hontiveros are seizing that moment as the voice of due process model of law enforcement. We all know that these politicians are all failures specially Delima who once commanded the Justice Department. To keep votes in their favor, Lagman and Hontiveros would take turns or probably compete in talking loud and misleading Filipinos by crying about human rights violation through the news media. It is rather instructional when Lagmans fellow U.P. alumni Karen Davila or Julius Babao cover that segment. In today’s overwhelming drug problems in the Philippines, the real solution and it is about time to use the law enforcement model of policing. President Duterte as a lawyer knew about this.

    Hey Fil-Ams, stay out of what happening in the Philippines, if you all want to say something about the Philippines president why you all should jump on a airplane and go back to the Philippines and say it to president Dutere face and lets see what happen to all of you. If you can’t do that? Shut you big mouths don’t say anything bad about president Dutere, he’s one hell of a good Philippines president.
