Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte has all the makings of a people's champion.
For one, this guy will literally shoot just about any criminal he comes in contact with, and he has the tibay ng apog to declare such a thing in public. Time Magazine took notice of his exploits a couple of years ago and gave him the moniker, "The Punisher." You crime-fighter-loving people will be glad to know that he's also the dad of sheriff-punching former mayor Sara Duterte. But more than anything, Mayor Rody gives the heftiest bounties when it comes to Davao's most wanted criminals. No wonder he's never left office since '88.
His most recent crime-busting offers: a P10,000 reward for those who can identify drug users, an Isuzu Crosswind to those who can identify drug pushers, and a Mitsubishi Montero to those who can pinpoint the location of any shabu laboratory in the city. See, that's just crazy. Mayor, you're crazy!
And just to show you how bonkers (and we mean that in a good way) this guy is, we compiled a list of Mayor Duterte's most menacing (and threatening) statements against smugglers, looters, car thieves, and fellow government officials. You go get 'em, sir!
