[PODCAST] Tarlac shooting: Blood on Duterte’s hands
From President Duterte’s mouth to cop Jonel Nuezca’s gun, a culture of impunity ends in blood-soaked corpses

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte attempts to distance himself from the gruesome murder of a mother and son by a cop, but many Filipinos can’t forget his own words about killing and protecting policemen.

Threats to kill suspects who “fight back” and promises to pardon cops who “massacre” drug addicts have defined Duterte’s messaging and governance style.

In this episode of the Seat of Power podcast, let’s recall Duterte’s public statements about killing and encouraging violence as a way to address society’s ills.

Warning: This episode contains sounds and words of violence.
