Incitement or resort to violence is the result of the President’s drug war. Crimes not related to drugs continue to happen in the Philippines. Little has been done about it. In fact, the PNP justifies that crime rate has gone done. Why is this not felt?
[VIDEO]: See the problems of society that include heinous crimes like rape and murder, robbery, arson and hostage dramas that are not caused by illegal drugs. Often due to poverty, anger mismanagement, mental illness and simply bad attitudes. How can these be prevented?
International Criminal Court
The International Criminal Court’s chief prosecutor, Fatou Bensouda will be closely following developments in the Philippines in the weeks to come and record any instance of incitement or resort to violence
Inciting to Killings
Bensouda also raised the alarm over earlier pronouncements of government leaders which she said seemed to condone killings and encourage State forces and civilians to target individuals “with lethal force.
President’s Defense on Crimes
President Rodrigo Duterte in his speeches is far too defensive in his drug war. His announcements and comments in public did not help solve drug-related crimes. Instead, they incite or condone (inspire) other crimes not related to drug abuse.
Robberies, Rape, Arson and Murder
Robberies, rape, arson, and murder are crimes committed by some individuals without the influence of drugs. Oftentimes, it’s crime of passion that root from mental instability, aggression, and anger mismanagement.
Mental Health Care
When the poorest of the poor are stressed out and don’t know what to do, where can they go? The people they knew would likely have the same problems. This is one government public service that must be enhanced the same as the drug war.
Ills of Society
Social problems cannot be dealt with by the president alone. Each citizen of the country has the responsibility to take care of another or contribute to the community. If resources are scarce, services will do. But government agencies must initiate these moves to get a wider coverage.
