Killing OK, but not lying

This article reports that the vicious crackdown on drug users has continued in the Philippines, with an estimated 7,000 deaths so far and President Duterte promising to support and pardon any police accused of unlawful killings. Following the police murder of a South Korean businessman, however, the president has now suspended the drug war, saying the police are “corrupt to the core … I’ll protect the police. But I won’t protect lying.”
