Rodrigo Duterte on solving problem
Unit 1012 awards the Rayner Goddard Act of Courage Award to Rodrigo Duterte for defending the death penalty. Although, we, the comrades of Unit 1012: The VFFDP, rather that he uses capital punishment after a fair trial with judicial safeguards, we still respect the fact that he has the courage to protect his countrymen.
He is also nicknamed, ‘The Strongman of the Philippines’ and he was sworn in as President on June 30, 2016. Let us present some articles on him wanting to bring back capital punishment and an article in favor of the death penalty in St. Kitts and Nevis.

Duterte backs death penalty to curb heinous crimes

President Rodrigo Duterte has pushed for the reimposition of death penalty, saying that heinous crime increased when it was lifted. In his speech during the Manila Times fifth Business Forum, Duterte insisted that capital punishment deters crime, as proven by the data presented by the Bureau of Corrections (BuCor) at the Senate on Tuesday.
“Now that there is no death penalty, an increase of 3,000% (people convicted of heinous crime). And they say it’s not a deterrent?” the president said.
Citing the BuCor report, Duterte said the number of people convicted of heinous crimes after the abolition of the death penalty in 2006 rose by 3,280%.
“BuCor director Benjamin delos Santos said there were 189 inmates convicted of heinous crimes before the capital punishment was abolished in 2006,” Duterte said, reading from his notes.
“After death penalty was revoked, this figure rose to 6,200 inmates, an astonishing 3,280% increase of persons convicted of heinous crimes,” he added.
Duterte said with him as president, he is confident that the enforcement of death penalty, if it is revived, will be more effective.
“They said when the death penalty was there, nothing happened. It’s because I was not the president then,” he said.
SURVEY po tayo totohanang sagot lang po! YES or NO?
We totohanang survey answers only! Yes or no?
“Bring it back while I am president, I’ll turn those idiots into a curtain on trees. Hang them,” the president added.
Since the presidential campaign, Duterte has declared support for the return of the death penalty. House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez also expressed his support for the revival of death penalty. Early this week, he sacked deputy speakers, including former president Gloria Arroyo, who were opposed to the measure that seeks the revival of capital punishment.

Rodrigo Duterte on being a terror to evildoers
In Support Of Capital Punishment
By Web Editor -

By Michael S. Blake
One Ewin James, writing an opinion piece in this The Observer newspaper of 13th instant argues pro capital punishment as a fit, fair and just penalty for those who visit murder on others of their fellowmen.
I support the proposition.
The unpalatable fact of the matter is that St. Kitts and Nevis, a classic small-island state with a population hovering around 50,000 souls, and occupying a physical landmass of some 104 sq. miles, averages 25 or so murders per year, and as such, ‘boasts’ a per capita murder rate of approximately 50 per 100,000 persons.
When this statistic is juxtaposed with the figure for Singapore being 0.5, 20 for Nigeria, for the USA 6, for Jamaica 38, 26 for St Vincent and the Grenadines, and 30 for Antigua , it becomes frighteningly clear that we have a serious problem with murder in our beloved Federation.
If one couples the foregoing with the reality that very few murderers are caught and convicted, and that even fewer are sentenced to death, it is fair to conclude that the celestially high level of unwarranted killings will persist, giving rise to a sickening societal acceptance of such internecine behaviour as ‘normal’, even to be expected, as one’s sensitivity to and sense of umbrage at these murders become numb and inured over time.
Yet I am convinced that a suffocating anger and a tide of discontent at these killings run the gamut of social strata, some of it bred by despair arising from a sense of individual helplessness underpinned by a real or perceived inability to ‘do something about it’.
But, more importantly, and more germane to this debate, is the defiant refusal of the powers that be to activate the capital punishment apparatus that our laws provide as a definitive means of addressing the vexing issue.
The voice of the people is (still) the voice of God, and despite its being evident that the significant majority of the population not only supports but desires the imposition of the death penalty on those found guilty of murder, those in position to facilitate its application stubbornly and steadfastly refuse to bend or bow to this voice.
I submit that our society cannot afford to continue to go easy on those bent on killing their fellowmen, residents and visitors alike.
I propose that we hang the culprits as a matter of course.
Let those who claim to be champions of ‘human rights’ damn o their hearts’ content. For there is ample evidence that an emphasis on ‘human rights’ has contributed directly to an abundance of human wrongs.
A ‘life sentence’ for those found guilty, – where such is (rarely!) imposed, –, almost always translates into the culprit being housed, fed, entertained and protected by the State, using, of course, funds, monies, personnel ,and other resources extracted from and provided by peaceful, law-abiding citizens and residents , including , so very unfairly ! , those members and relatives of the family of the victim(s) him/herself (themselves).
The never-ending discussion as to whether capital punishment deters murders is, to me, pellucidly immaterial to this debate. I do not for one moment promote the imposition of the death penalty on murderers premised on a notion that it serves as deterrent.
Indeed, capital punishment may or may not deter, but clearly, irrefutably, one thing is certain: hanging the murderer ABSOLUTELY DETERS HIM/HER FORM KILLING AGAIN!

Otto Von Bismarck contends that murderers must stew in their own grease.
The Bible commends that whosoever sheddeth man’s blood, by man must his blood be shed.
Capital punishment, then, as James contends, is retributive justice, pure and total.
I am convinced that because the penalty that murderers exact and suffer for their irreversible crimes is neither swift, severe, nor sure, the rate of homicides continues apace.
I suggest we return to the gallows as means of declaring boldly that we are deadly serious about stemming the tide of murders that already threatens to wreak irreparable damage to our economic and cultural infrastructure , and to violently upset our social equilibrium.
Hang them high!!
