Drug war risks more minors getting killed, bishop warns

MANILA— More people, including the youth, could get killed if the government won’t change its hardline approach to stamping out illegal drugs in the country, a Catholic bishop has warned. Reacting to the killing of another teenager, Bishop Pablo Virgilio David of Kalookan said more people could be killed because the government’s violent drug war is “naïve, seriously flawed, and needs serious evaluation and rethinking”. He said the killings of 19-year old Carlo Angelo Arnaiz, including that of 17-year old Kian Loyd delos Santos, are not isolated cases as claimed by police authorities. “If they don’t stop the killing, we’ll…

Bishop asks Duterte to ‘reconfigure’ drug war

A Catholic bishop is hoping that President Rodrigo Duterte would “reconfigure” his war on the illegal drugs that has already claimed thousands of lives. Bishop Pablo Virgilio David of Kalookan diocese said another key thing for Duterte is to learn by listening to drug experts. “Allow experts in various fields to take part in coming up with an in-depth study of the root causes of the illegal drug problem in the country,” he said. While authorities strengthen its intelligence work against drug lords and scalawags in the police, he said the government must also strongly support community-based drug rehabilitation programs….
