In the Philippines, a novel approach to crime by their new president:
- In a nationally televised speech Saturday night, the next president of the Philippines encouraged people to shoot and kill drug dealers that resist arrest.
According to Al Jazeera, Rodrigo Duterte said, "Please feel free to call us, the police, or do it yourself if you have the gun — you have my support," adding, "Shoot him and I'll give you a medal." He also threatened to kill drug addicts.
OF course, he also proposed killing journalists and corrupt cops without due process either, so there is a downside.
