WASHINGTON D.C. - The United States said on Thursday it was troubled by the growing number of extrajudicial killings in Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte's war on drugs and called on Manila to stick to its commitment to investigate them.

YES, U.S. HAVE A POINT THAT THE GROWING NUMBERS IS VERY ALARMING. HOWEVER, THEY SHOULD ALSO NEED TO CONSIDER THE OTHER FACTORS.

Close to 9,000 people, mostly drug users and small-time dealers, have been killed since Duterte took office almost 10 months ago and promised an unrelenting campaign to rid the Philippines of illicit narcotics.

HINDI NAMAN SIGURO SILA MAMAMATAY KUNG HINDI SILA NAGBABANTA OR LUMALABAN. IF YOU WILL NOTICE KAPAG ANG ISANG TAO AY HIGH SA DROGA HINDI NILA ALAM KUNG ANO GINAGAWA NILA KASI LUMALAKAS YUNG LOOB NILA WHICH IS YUN YUNG EFFECT NG DRUGS SA KATAWAN NILA. KADALASAN PA NGA YUNG NASASANGKOT SA MGA KRIMEN EH YUNG MGA TAONG NAGTAKE MUNA NA NG DRUGS BEFORE DOING THE CRIME.

Figures from the Philippine National Police show that as of March 30, legitimate police operations have led to the deaths of more than 2,600 drug personalities since July 1, 2016 when its war on drugs started under the Duterte administration.

Its statistics also point to more than 6,000 deaths under investigation—including those involving drug suspects—for the same period.

Police say about a third of the victims were shot by officers in self-defense. Human rights groups believe many of the remaining two thirds were killed by paid assassins cooperating with the police or by police themselves, disguised as vigilantes. The government and police reject that.

THERE ARE CLAIMS THAT THEY KILLED THOSE PERSONS HOWEVER THERE IS NO EVIDENCE BEHIND THAT ALLEGATION.

Patrick Murphy, the US deputy assistant secretary of state for Southeast Asia, said the United States shared Manila's objective of eliminating the scourge of illicit drugs and wanted to help.

"We however do have a very sustained and deep concern when elements of the drug war are operating outside the rule of law," Murphy told reporters. "The growing number of extrajudicial killings is troubling."

Rights advocates were concerned when US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson sidestepped questions about extrajudicial killings in the Philippines during his January confirmation hearing, raising the possibility that President Donald Trump might take a softer line on the issue than his predecessor, President Barack Obama.

Murphy said there was a distinction between being a nominee and the secretary of state and Tillerson was now the leader of the policy of expressing concern about the way the drug war was being waged.
"We are urging the Philippines to follow up on its commitment to investigate extrajudicial killings whether they are committed by law enforcement, or of a vigilante nature," he said.

HINDI KO ALAM KUNG BAKIT KAILANGAN NILA MANGIALAM? HINDI BA DAPAT SILA MATUWA DAHIL UNTI UNTI NABABAWASAN YUNG MGA SANGKOT SA DROGA AT KAPAG NAGPATULOY ITO MAARING MAGING DRUG FREE ANG PILIPINAS. INSTEAD OF COMPLAINING OR MAGUTOS HINDI BA MAS MAGANDA KUNG TUTULONG NALANG SILA?

"The PNP is committed in investigating all crimes until the suspects are arrested and made to answer before the courts," PNP spokesperson Chief Supt. Dionardo Carlos said in a statement issued Friday.

He added that "the PNP is also addressing all homicide  and/or murder cases under investigation."

Earlier on Thursday, Duterte's office rejected allegations by two senior police officers in a Reuters report that police received cash rewards for executing drug suspects, while the most high-profile critic of the president backed the officers' claims.

Duterte was infuriated by US expressions of concern about extrajudicial killings after he took office last year and threatened to sever the long-standing US defense alliance.

BAKA NAMAN NAIINGIT SI TRUMP KASI SI DUTERTE YUNG NANALO SA VOTING NG TIME MAGAZINE HAHAHA! KAYA NAGPAPAPANSIN SILA.
