Second mayor in the Philippines shot dead



CNN is reporting that "A second town mayor in the Philippines has been shot and killed by an unknown assailant, a day after one was assassinated by a sniper in a brazen daylight attack. Mayor Ferdinand Bote of the town of General Tinio in Nueva Ecija province was gunned down by a motorcycle-riding suspect in nearby Cabanatuan City on Tuesday afternoon, police told CNN Philippines. Bote appears to have been the victim of a drive-by shooting, in which he was struck multiple times, while riding in his beige Toyota Fortuner, according to the police report. Bote was declared dead on arrival at MV Gallego hospital and an investigation has been launched."

  1. So are the two former Mayors supporters of the President? Wonder if they are headed towards a civil war or their President wants a dictatorship. We know dtrump thought he was fine.

    1. He's not worth the bullet. The truth has killed his career already.

  3. May not have been a drug dealer, might just have wanted people to stand trial for their crimes. When you start shooting "drug dealers" you have lost your moral ground and the basis of your democracy. Then you can start shooting your political opponents. Its a pretty good way to become president for life......

    1. Yes shooting people without a trial opens the door to shooting political opponents then accusing them of drug dealing after the fact. Someone could rob someone, shoot them, then say oh he was a drug dealer. Due process is essential.
