Duterte lectured the journalist on the unfavorable judicial system of the past that led to what he called a drug “pandemic” and the defenseless situations law enforcement personnel and their families have been put in.

Then the president reminded the journalist about the murders of black people in communities in the United States as well as the killing of innocent civilians, including women and children in places where there is war participated in by the U.S. and the United Nations.

imageAfter several attempts to try to pin down Duterte into admitting the politics of guns in the country, the journalist ended up being speechless, turning into a deer caught in the headlights. Then he finally thanked the president for the valuable lesson he received.

You see, Duterte is not only a mayor and president.  He’s a great teacher too!
