Duterte who inspired mass killings says he cares about human life

"Your concern is human rights. Mine is human lives," is perhaps the most cynical, nonsensical, cold-blooded pronouncement by a Philippine president. But it is, of course, not surprising that the statement came from Rodrigo Duterte, the leader who inspired one of the most horrific mass killings in Philippine history. Police have reported killing more 4,000 people in so-called drug operations. 4,000 human lives. That's 4,000 Filipinos who were tagged as either a drug dealer or user, and summarily executed. No due process. No hearing. No trial. And those deaths are just a small part of the picture. Police have also reported more than 22,000 deaths that are under investigatio...Keep on reading: Duterte who inspired mass killings says he cares about human life.....»»

Pres. Duterte's third SONA is happening in a few hours but it's not too late to talk about the makeup looks that we can expect from the women attending the event.
