Pacquiao wants those behind smuggled drugs executed by firing squad
If he had his way, Senator Manny Pacquiao said he himself would kill by firing squad the drug lord behind the P6.8 billion worth of shabu that was allegedly smuggled into the country.
“Nakakainit talaga ng ulo…parang ang gusto ko ba ‘pag nahuli ‘yung nagpasok ng droga na yan dito at nahuli ‘yong droga na marami, ilagay sa tabi niya yung droga, ilagay sa tabi dun, tapos ipakita sa taumbayan. I-firing squad,” Pacquaio said in an interview at the Senate on Wednesday.
(It really makes me angry… If we arrest the person and recover the illegal drugs that he brought here, I want him beside the illegal drugs and then kill him by firing squad.)
“I-firing squad talaga. Kung ako, i-firing squad kasi ang tigas talaga ng ulo. Ewan ko kung Filipino ang gumagawa o foreigners ang gumagawa. Gusto kong masampulan ang foreigners na nagpapasok dito sa ating bansa.”
(It really should be by firing squad. It should be by firing squad because they are really stubborn. I don’t know if the ones behind it are Filipinos or foreigners. I want foreigners that brought the drugs here to experience it first.)
“Para sa akin walang batas batas, para madisiplina, wala silang takot e,” he added.
The senator said it would be an insult if foreigners are the ones smuggling drugs into the country.
Pacquiao also said he is willing to go to jail if he could to kill the drug lord behind the smuggled shabu.
“Magpapakulong na lang ako…para ako na ang mag firing squad sa dug lord na ‘yan na nagpasok dito sa Pilipinas,” he said.
(I’d rather be in jail so I can kill that drug lord by firing squad.)
He said he has already filed a resolution to look into the smuggled shabu. /je
