The report is actually tactful. It should have added “And then you are fu**d” to the title, because it talks about bringing bodies to expensive funeral homes thought to be in cahoots with the police, who get commissions for each corpse.
In stark contrast to how the poor are treated, the report cites a $120 million drug bust, supposedly the largest in the country’s history, where all 10 people involved were arrested (including three Chinese), and no one was killed. They are now in court, defending themselves. All nonpoor.
The report has been criticized by some (Sen. Dick Gordon, for one) as being “hearsay” and not worthy of a Senate investigation. And by Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II who has contested the finding that the Philippines might be liable for crimes against humanity, saying, “The criminals, the drug lords, drug pushers, they are not humanity. They are not humanity.”
