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.
