Killer Presidente

That time the president of the Philippines went around killing people:
“In Davao I used to do it personally. Just to show to [the police] that if I can do it, why can’t you. And I’d go around in Davao with a motorcycle, with a big bike, around, and I would just patrol the streets, looking for trouble also. I was really looking for a confrontation so I could kill,” he said.

As mayor of Davao City from 1988-98, 2001-10 and 2013-16 — Duterte held other elected positions between mayoral terms — he earned a reputation for reducing crime as well as supporting so-called death squads. Similarly, a campaign against drug dealers and abusers, started after Duterte was elected president in May, has led to the deaths of nearly 6,000 people, with police, vigilantes and mercenaries responsible for the extrajudicial killings.

While Duterte, a lawyer, is known for blustering and exaggerated comments, as well as going off-topic from prepared speeches, his admission could lead to impeachment, said Sen. Richard Gordon, a member of the Philippine Senate’s majority bloc.

“If he really said that, then maybe he has a reason to utter those words and if someone would want to sue him, we will have to conduct impeachment proceedings. When he says that, he’s opening himself up,” Gordon said.
Careful; he might wipe you out, too...
