Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte allowed citizens to shoot officials who demand bribes. About this writes the publication Manila Bulletin.
The head of state said that it was necessary to shoot so as not to kill the official. He offered to kick the corrupt official in order to avoid criminal prosecution.
If you pay taxes, fees, customs duties and so on, and these fools demand a bribe, hit them. If you have weapons, you can shoot them, but do not kill them, because otherwise you may not receive a pardon as a result of the proceedings.
