Response to NWCorona (Original post)

3. I read a news article on this situation

last night and the top-ranked comment, by far, was one to the effect that there were more deaths prior to Duterte's initiative and those deaths were related to the trafficking of drugs and included many innocent people or ones hooked on drugs. Now the majority of deaths are drug dealers, so it's the lesser of the evils.

That was the gist of it, and there were similar comments by other people of Filipino heritage with plenty of support.

I'm in favor of letting due process play out in a court of law, but I'm not on the ground in the Philippines.
