A male reporter sought the opinion of Pres. Duterte regarding PNP Chief dela Rosa who broke down in tears during the senate hearing on the killings of two young men allegedly by policemen.
PRRD loses his cool and lashes at Hontiveros and company for using the killings attributed to policemen as an opportunity to pounce at the Duterte admin while staying silent on killings attributed to drug-crazed addicts.
In anger, Duterte called Hontiveros crying at the news of Kian delos Santos death as “pretended grief or hypocrisy”!
“Sa pagdinig po sa senado, di na po nakatiis si PNP Chief Bato dela Rosa na maging emosyonal po ano at sya ay napaiyak. Hindi po ito unang pagkakataon, Mr. President. Sa tingin nyo po ba nakakarandam na po ba talaga ng matinding pressure, ang?”
President Duterte: “No. I think he’s hurt that yung policy na itong pangalawang patay. Do you think two killings even if its illegal would make a policy? Dalawang patay, palagay na lang natin, pinatay…murder, I asked Hontiveros: Is this a policy? Is that baseline of a policy? Napakabobo naman nya. Kaya umiyak ang tao, it’s an insult na sabihin its a policy of the police to kill. There are so many criminal minds even in the Liberal Party. Sila ang mya record ng plunder at also killing. You make a comparison. Yung sa kanila yung killings noon, wala di pa lang. Wala ang pulis noon takot. Even the drugs. They are silent. So when I became President, sinabiko sa Filipino, this is how widespread the drug problem is. Wla man silang sinabi. Bakit nung may limang pinatay sa Bulacan, pinatay yung 1 year old na bata, pinakaalaman ma nya. Wla, I did not hear hear cried. Or even complaining the police are not doing enough. Tapos, they pick up, politika. And they crazily into it. Even before the assignment, may assignment na yan sila. She was assigned with the group. I would not name names. But nakuha ko yung conversations nila.”
