There is no place for disastrous “hyperbole” when the people’s human rights and civil liberties are at stake.
Sen. Ronald dela Rosa defended as just “hyperbole” President Rodrigo Duterte’s “kill, kill, kill” order for security forces to exterminate communists rebels.
Duterte’s deadly order resulted in the separate but simultaneous extrajudicial killing of nine (9) crusading activists in Calabarzon who were not even combatants.
Until now, Duterte has neither recanted nor tempered his lethal instruction which may escalate nationwide.
Only the President’s apologists are vainly justifying his perilous statement.
