Watch Duterte tell the story personally.President Rodrigo Duterte has a message for corrupt officials, he said, he will throw them out of a helicopter in the same way he did to a kidnapper many years ago.
During a speech in typhoon-hit Camarines Sur, Duterte said, "Ang mag-corrupt dito…Kapag ka kinorrupt mo ‘yan kung sinong --- sunduin kita ng helicopter papuntang Maynila, itatapon kita palabas,"
The crowd cheered when the President said, "Nagawa ko naman ‘yon, bakit hindi ko gawain ulit?,"
Duterte recounted a case of a woman who was kidnapped. The parents for the woman paid the ransom, but despite that, the kidnappers raped and killed killed the woman.
Recalling the incident, Duterte said."Mag-kidnap ka ng tao, ‘yung mga Instik. Magbigay na tapos patayin mo pa rin. Anong klase? Meron bang kriminal na ganoon?"
"Mag-kidnap ka ng babae pa tapos magbigay na ‘yung mga magulang, papatayin mo pa, rape-in mo pa. Eh di itapon kita," he added.
If you were Duterte, would you have done the same and let the kidnapper live happily in jail being supported by taxpayers?
