[PODCAST] Kriminal: Regrets from creating the drug war
Former police chief Camilo Cascolan tells ‘Kriminal’ what he wished had been done differently in President Rodrigo Duterte's ‘drug war’

When former police chief Camilo Cascolan co-wrote the bible of President Rodrigo Duterte’s “drug war,” he said he did not envision it to end up this way.

When the Duterte administration started, dozens of killings happened every night, and the top officials of Camp Crame saw it too. They believed those killed by the police fought back.

But, aside from the killings, was the campaign actually working? Was the strategy of fear enough? Were the deaths justified?

In this episode of Kriminal, Rappler’s Rambo Talabong sits down with Cascolan to ask him what he wished had been done differently in the anti-drug campaign.
