Sara Duterte goes beast mode versus ‘Madame’ in viral Instagram post after ‘Madame’ calls lowering of age of criminal liability ‘immoral’?

A visibly furious Mayor Sara Duterte has taken to Instagram venting her frustration at an unnamed ‘Madame’, calling her out of touch with reality.

The ‘Madame’ whom Sara refused to identify, earned the ire of the Davao City mayor following a public statement that lowering the age of criminal liability to 12 as immoral, unscientific and ineffective.

Sara quickly brushed aside ‘Madame’s’ argument because she has not regularly read police reports, have not talked to social welfare workers or has worked on grassroots issues.

Sara did not spare ‘Madame’s allies and friends either for comparing the circumstances of the Philippines versus developed countries.

Sara said it’s wrong because our culture, the psyche, the circumstances aren’t the same.

Sara remarked that if she had her way, she locks this ‘Madame’ in a room for one night with a 13 year old Sukarap gang member, kind of first hand experience with gang members.

Sara joked that they are not criminals (Sukarap gang members) but children in conflict with the law as Madame wants to call minor offenders who committed crimes.

Sara then proceeded to give Madame a sermon that not all children are angels, incapable of horrible crimes because the reality is, we are not in heaven.

Sara, speaking from personal experience as Davao City mayor, said there are documented cases of children ages 12,13 and 14 years old committing rape, murder etc..

Sara remarked that it is wrong to spare them the rod because they are children.

Ladies and gentlemen, children are capable of commiting crimes. Put that in your head. Wag na sana kayo mag pretend na anghel ang mga bata, wala po tayo sa langit. We have documented cases of 12,13,14 year old children committing rape, murder, theft, robbery, drug smuggling, drug peddling even arson.

Sara stated that we can put them in an age-appropriate jails and get rehabilitated.

If you do not want them in jail with adults put them in your child in conflict with the law age appropriate jail. The issues may be a complicated web of poverty, illiteracy, broken families, abuse and a simpleton Madame (who supports children criminals for the reason that they are children. phew) but all these are no excuse to spare the rod and let the problem of underage criminals fester.

Sara ended the post by leaving a short advice to Madame to reflect on.

Take your head out of your butthole Madame and walk Metro Manila streets at night. Alone. Awon nato.

A quick Google search tells us that the ‘Madame’ alluded to by Sara Duterte was no other than Senator Risa Hontiveros. You may visit the link here.

indaysaraduterte The Madame who said that lowering the age of criminal liability to 12 years old as immoral, unscientific and ineffective is clearly out of touch with reality. This person has not regularly read police reports, have not talked to social welfare workers or has worked on grassroots issues. This Madame and her like minded friends compare other well developed countries to the Philippines as if the culture, the psyche, the circumstances are the same. What I would give to lock you in a room for one night with a 13 year old Sukarap gang member, para makatilaw ka. Eto pa, hindi sila criminal, they are children in conflict with the law. Eh dba its the same banana? If you do not want them in jail with adults put them in your child in conflict with the law age appropriate jail. The issues may be a complicated web of poverty, illiteracy, broken families, abuse and a simpleton Madame (who supports children criminals for the reason that they are children. phew) but all these are no excuse to spare the rod and let the problem of underage criminals fester. Take your head out of your butthole Madame and walk Metro Manila streets at night. Alone. Awon nato.
