Many writings have already explained why the Davaoeños love Mayor Rodrigo Duterte. Well, this time, it’s the other way around! These are the people who don’t like the “Berdugo,” and the reasons why they hate him.
1. High Profile Criminals
Drug lords. Human traffickers. Syndicates. If you want to explore and expand your monkey business in Davao, please do yourself a favor. Don’t die and dig your own grave in our wonderful city.
2. Inconsiderate Party Animals
You’re a nocturnal, party person who usually gets drunk and screw up in a public place. You wouldn’t want to end up sleeping behind bars. YOLO is not an excuse. Follow the 12-midnight curfew!
3. LGBT Hypocrites
You discriminate the LGBT people and embarrass them in public. He hates gender discrimination and oppression of any kind. So beware!
4. Women and Children’s Rights Violators
Duterte protects the rights of women and children. If you don’t want to get slapped without any warnings, show them respect the way he does.
5. Abusive Smoker
Now, you deliberately smoke in a public area. Even before the plane lands, if you are a tourist or a migrant, the airline announces that Davao implements Ordinance No. 0367-12, also known as the “Comprehensive Anti-Smoking Ordinance”. Sorry, e-cigarettes are not exempted! Just follow this rule or you’ll regret having this vice. 😉
6. Reckless Drivers
You’re an abusive motorist who doesn’t follow strict speed limit of 30 kilometers per hour. Public roads are not your race track! Get shot by the speed gun and find yourself explaining to the authorities while surrendering your license. Of course, don’t forget to pay the fine.
7. Snatchers, thieves, & muggers
Are you a small-scale criminal who victimizes people walking on the streets at night? Try your luck here! Our mayor stays as late as you do, checks every street he passes by and makes sure there’s peace and order in his territory before he calls it a day. One tip, don’t ever think of robbing a taxi driver. One of his hobbies is to roam around the city, driving a taxi.
8. Corrupt Government Officials and Politicians
One of the reasons why some government officials don’t like Duterte is because of his firm stand against corruption. If he becomes the president, say goodbye to your crookedness and ill-gotten wealth. Or better yet, clean up your mess while you still can! You might feel safe now with your connections, but once this lion smells your sleaze, it will be the beginning of your end.
