MANILA, Philippines – Tokhang and Double Barrel are being intensified by another notch: police chiefs assigned in areas governed by “narco mayors” have been ordered to shoot to kill. President Duterte announced the order as he met with mayors from around the country at Malacañang yesterday. “I will kill you,” he warned mayors involved in drugs, adding that the local police chiefs would be the designated hit men. While some mayors felt tired waiting for several hours to meet the President, Halili said it was worth it. The Malacañang invitation was not limited to mayors involved in illegal drugs but also local officials linked to other illegal activities.
