Polls Show More Filipinos Doubt Duterte's Drug War

Study showing broad support for Rody cited

More than half of Filipinos believe numerous suspects killed in President Rodrigo Duterte's campaign against illegal drugs did not fight back as reported by police to justify the killings, according to an independent survey released Wednesday.

The body of the member of the Presidential Security Group (PSG) was discovered by his wife in his quarters at Malacanang Park where the guards are based, close to the presidential palace, PSG chief Lope Dagoy told reporters.

More than 800 people have died in the conflict, which Duterte said was triggered by an attempt to arrest a drug personality, who he did not identify. "We continue to do so", he said. The mercurial president was not seen in public on Monday and prior to that had been in his southern home city of Davao, for several days. "We need to find out exactly what it was", Presidential Spokesperson Ernesto Abella said during a televised press conference in Malacañang.

Malacañang Park is located directly across Malacañang Palace, which also houses Bahay Pangarap, President Rodrigo Duterte's official residence.

DirecTV offers NFL Sunday Ticket refunds over anthem issue
However, customers told multiple outlets they have received refunds when saying that protests are the reason for stopping service. The league responded with some teams standing with arms locked, while some teams stayed in the locker room during the anthem.

Duterte is notoriously unpredictable and often causes confusion with his schedules and time-keeping.

"Baka may makaturo lang niyan totoo na meron akong deposit maski one dollar diyan sa Hong Kong [If anyone can prove that I have a deposit, even one dollar, in Hong Kong], I will step down as President of this Republic", Duterte said during the anniversary rites of the Department of Justice last Tuesday night.

Dagoy said police were now investigating the shooting and the PSG did not want to speculate about the circumstances.
