Hit them, shoot them, but don’t kill, Philippines President tells citizens what to do to corrupt officials

Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte has directed citizens to shoot, but not kill, any public officials they witness taking bribes, promising them immunity from prosecution, provided the corrupt bureaucrat survives.

In a speech made during his visit to a province on the Philippine island, the president suggested shooting corrupt officials in the foot to avoid a prison sentence and 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.”

According to RT, the presidential ‘order’ also called on Filipinos to beat up corrupt officials they encounter, despite the likely disastrous consequences for law and order.

“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,” the outspoken leader said.

He added that those who take him up on the offer “will not be sent to prison, but will only be seriously punished physically.”
