  1. The issue is “the system does not work”, criminals has more rights and privileges than a law abiding citizen. Human Rights only protect the criminals and close their eyes on the Law Abiding Citizen Victims.

  2. The difference is in the United States the police are charged, the latest killing the officer is already charged with 1st degree manslaughter 6 days after shooting a unarmed citizen whereas in the Philippines the Police are not charged for killing unarmed citizens.

    When you look at the Philippines system of justice no one get arrested or convicted.

    There is a big difference in what Police do in the USA and what Police do in the Philippines. But apparently there is no difference in how the biased press reports it.
