"Hit Them, Shoot, But Don't Kill Them" - President Tells Citizens To Attack Corrupt Politicians 3

The 74-year-old president of the Philippines, Rodrigo Duterte has advised citizens to ‘hit, shoot but not kill’ any corrupt public officials they may encounter.

According to Daily Mail, the president said if anyone witnesses officials taking bribes and shoots them he can promise them immunity from prosecution but only if the victim survives.

President Duterte, who stated this in a speech made during his visit to Bataan on Thursday, suggested shooting corrupt officials in the foot to avoid a prison sentence, and he offered to defend such action. He said

“If you pay a tax, a fee or get a certificate, and the officials ask for a bribe, hit them. If you have weapons, you can shoot them, but don’t kill, because during the proceedings you may not receive a pardon.’

‘Don’t kill them because you might end up getting embroiled with those given pardon after computation. Just the foot. It will only be serious physical injuries. You’ll be placed on probation. You’ll just report to probation officer. At least you shot a foolish thief and I will defend you.’

The outspoken leader added that those who take him up on the offer ‘will not be sent to prison, but will only be seriously punished physically.’ The president appealed to the public to assert their rights, and report any corruption or abuse involving a government official or worker.
