The security and safety of Davao City is currently questioned by my fellow constituents due to the robbery and killings that is currently happening. We are all alarmed with the sudden death of six women in a week! It's very shocking to know that the peaceful Davao is attacked by terrorists! Davao is known to be one of the most livable city in the country but as of now, we are afraid to walk alone in the streets of Davao even in the broad daylight. The death of the victims has warned us to be more careful.
We celebrate the birth of Davao on the 16th of March and it's not a good sign to begin the celebration. It gives us worries. How can we enjoy it if we don't know who's the victim and where in Davao it will happen?
With the incidents going on right now, some Dabawenyos call for the attention of DDS. There's no certainty that it exists though. Nobody distinctively claimed that he is the one who created it. Davao Death Squad as I heard punishes the violators of the law that allows summary execution. I can't point a certain person responsible for the death of the suspects. I am aware that our vice mayor Rodrigo Duterte is very vocal in making the public know that he doesn't want the presence of robbers, drug pushers, bombers, and other perpetrators of crimes in the city but is his statement below will confirm the rumors? I'm not drawing any conclusion here so the idea now depends on every individual.
My sincere condolences to the family of the victims. The victims were all women and it gives us terror. It hinders us from going out with confidence.Having this thing in Davao is like a nightmare. I'm not used to living in this kind of place that puts our life at stake when outside home. I want the old Davao back. A simple yet safe city that promises good life to the residence of Davao.
"We will not tolerate crimes, rest assured that the City Government and the Davao City Police Office are working on it." -Mayor Sara Duterte
To the people of Davao, be watchful. Be extra careful. Be aware of the announcement and pay attention to the current news. Let your family and friends know about it and pray for our city.
