Digong’s bloody revolution
WHEN the courts and prosecutors fail to do their job of giving justice to crime victims, they pave the way for the victims themselves or vigilantes to take the law into their hands.
When the police and other law enforcers become criminals, they bring about anarchy.
When leaders in government and society don’t care about the prevailing anarchy and the citizenry cries for law and order, a leader like Rodrigo “Digong” Duterte comes along.

Digong Duterte is about to wage a revolution in the country when he takes over the reins of power on June 30.
It’s going to be a bloody revolution with the blood of criminals, drug dealers and abusive law enforcers being spilled on the streets.
But the citizenry has nothing to fear because the revolution is being staged for their general welfare.
Law-abiding citizens will be far from harm in Digong’s war against crime and drugs.
The revolution which Digong is about to wage will cleanse society of the dregs—kidnappers, robbers, drug dealers, rapists, murderers, very corrupt government officials and very abusive policemen.

That, in a nutshell, is what Mano (or Big Brother) Digong and I talked about when I had a one-on-one with him at his home in Davao City on Sunday night.
Mano Digong never mentioned the words “revolution” or “bloody” in our hour-and-a-half conversation, but that, in effect, was what he conveyed to me.
Under his watch, Mano Digong said he will see to it that no criminal and drug dealer will be left standing.
He will be a model of honesty in government service when he takes over as President just like Singapore’s Lee Kuan Yew.
Except for mementos, his home in a middle-class subdivision is sparsely furnished.
“I’m too old to become corrupt, Mon. What use will I have for the excess money? I no longer have a hard-on as fast as I used to,” Digong said with a laugh.
I can’t give details about what he and I talked about because he made me swear not to reveal them—yet.
