Mali kayo! Chel Diokno says death penalty is not the answer
Atty. Chel Diokno is unafraid to call out the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA). The abogado recently reacted to their statement that Chinese drug dealers fearlessly run operations in the country because they do not fear for their lives.
A million death penalty laws won’t make a difference if the drug lords can’t be caught and convicted. Titigil lang mga yan pag alam nilang makukulong sila. Certainty of punishment, not severity, is the key to stopping crime. https://t.co/qrFCFRzOoN

Diokno noted that million death penalties will not magically stop drug operations in the Philippines. The abogado suggested that they start catching drug lords and actually convicting them.
The abogado emphasized that it is the certainty of conviction that will make it stop. He wrote, “Certainty of punishment, not severity, is the key to stopping crime.”
Words or empty threats mean nothing!
