    The casualties from the war on drugs being waged by Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte continue to mount, with latest figures showing that more than 2,400 alleged drug users and drug dealers have been killed since he launched the bloody campaign just over two months ago.

    Figures released by the Philippine National Police (PNP) on Sunday showed that 1,011 alleged drug users and dealers have been killed in police operations since Duterte began his six-year term on July 1, Agence France-Presse reports. A far higher number — 1,391 — has been chalked up to “deaths under investigation,” most of them believed to have been killed by vigilantes.

    If done properly (going to the court and sentenced them), it could be.

    Though the thing is the vigilante killings is making things bad, and the fact that many of the people involved in illegal drug trade are armed with guns, and will likely fight back rather than be arrested.
