President Rodrigo Duterte denied that law enforcers purposely kill and torture drug suspects, adding that torturing suspects is a waste of time. Speaking to businessmen on Thursday, Duterte denied that policemen torture and kill drug suspects, contrary to the claims of some victims' families.
"You wrap around plastics all over the body. Why would the police do that? Why would you waste your time? Simply shoot him in the head, that's it," Duterte said. He added that if a person intends to kill another, he can just shoot the head or the heart.
"If you want to kill the guy, single shot, make your choice, head or heart. And maybe if you're still mad at him, his balls. Then, tama na. Leave it that way," Duterte said.
