Liberal Media Points Out: Wrong Perception on Drug War Killings is Triggered by Misleading Captions

Liberal





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

The President defends his bloody war on drugs. He tells Southeast Asian lawyers that he is “demonized” by it. Du30 denies allegations of state-sponsored killings of both drug dealers and users. Meanwhile, a Liberal media also justifies the publication of its peer. This is the misconception on the popularized Pietà – like visual. The caption of this image somewhat says;  “Jennelyn Olaires weeps as she hugs partner Michael Siaron. He is 30, a pedicab driver. Siaron was killed by motorcycle-riding gunmen. This was near Pasay Rotonda on Edsa.” His death is one of the six drug war deaths in the area on that day. It certainly did not blame the PNP. However, due to the mention of the drug war or drug-related incidents, it created a notion that the administration is behind it.

Actual Liberal Caption

What can one think that amidst the drug war, news headlines and captions are added with misleading phrases like the line highlighted below?

Church: “Thou Shall Not Kill”

BANNER PHOTO. The caption of this Inquirer photo on July 24, 2016, is as follows: ‘A weeping Jennelyn Olaires hugs partner Michael Siaron, 30, a pedicab driver an alleged drug pusher, who was shot and killed by motorcycle-riding gunmen near Pasay Rotonda on Edsa. He was one of six killed in drug-related incidents in Pasay and Manila yesterday.’ Screenshot from www.inquirer.net

This is a clearly confusing but the media involved blames the Pro-administration journalist and officials instead for defending the President from the misunderstanding.




Human Rights Criticisms

The Du30 administration’s human rights record is strongly criticized by Western countries. It is one of the issues US President Donald Trump plans to raise on a visit to Manila next month to attend perhaps the ASEAN summit. The President tells the ASEAN Law Association that while some things against him were true, he did not order extrajudicial killings of drug suspects as his critics insinuate.




The President’s Statement

President Du30 said;

“I know that I have been demonized. And well, of course, I will assure you upon my oath as a lawyer and before God that some are true, some are not. And the extrajudicial tag that has been placed on me is simply not true.”

The above statement is actually factual given the reactions of the Human Rights bodies here and abroad. Not to mention the international community’s condemnation of the President’s alleged drug war actions.









What the President Really Said

Du30, however, clarifies that he warned drug peddlers that he would kill them if they destroyed the country. This includes the youth that he was duty-bound to protect as President. If doubts if anyone could fault him for making that statement. Recently, he also discloses that there seems like a twist in teenager killings. That has something to do with drug couriers but the PNP has yet to complete their investigation.

UN’s Agnes Callamard should Apologize now that CHR Ruled that there are no State-Sponsored EJKs

Agnes Callamard





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Dr. Agnes Callamard, United Nations rights rapporteur expressed her disgust on Tourism Secretary Wanda Teo. She reacted by saying; Stop extrajudicial killings instead of requesting media to “tone down” reports on them. Callamard shows to be very irresponsible with her words. Like Leni Robredo, she also maligned the Philippines by believing false reports and worst, promoting it through media interviews.

[VIDEO]: Malabo nang matuloy ang pagbisita sa bansa ni United Nations Special Rapporteur Agnes Callamard para mag- imbestiga sa umano’y nagaganap na extra judicial killings (EJK) bunsod ng pinaigting na kampanya sa illegal na droga ni Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte.



Wanda Teo’s Plea

Teo said in a news conference in Bangkok, Thailand, that reports about the killings related to the President’s war on drugs were not good for tourism. She said that the video on the drug killings sent by Leni Robredo to a United Nations’ side event painted the Philippines in a bad light.




Agnes Callamard is Hypocrite

Stop extrajudicial killings?  She does not even have the guts to land her feet on the Philippine soil to investigate the truth? Why is Callamard maligning the Filipino people and the country? IS she really from the UN or a biased supporter of the Liberal Party? How can she prover her claims that there are state-sponsored killings as she insinuates?



Amnesty International’s Report is based on Hearsays

Callamard was referring to the London-based Amnesty International’s 2016 report that accused the PNP of paying police officers to kill alleged drug offenders. It concluded that majority of the drug-related killings were systematically planned and organized by authorities and can constitute crimes against humanity.

CHR’s Findings are based on Facts

CHR Commissioner Gwen Pimentel-Gana speaks on the sidelines of a CHR-sponsored forum on women and children victims of the campaign against narcotics saying that there was no official policy ordering the Philippine National Police to kill suspected drug pushers and users. Based on the law, this is needed to determine that the administration is involved in such killings. She also said that they are not Amnesty International that based their reports on rumors. They always support their findings with facts.
