Duterte tasks PNP chief to probe black killings in US

PRESIDENT Rodrigo Duterte said Friday that he had tasked Philippine National Police chief Ronald dela Rosa to send a team to the United States to investigate the series of killings of black men by American forces.

“I told Bato (Dela Rosa), ‘Prepare a general who will be sent to America [as] rapporteur.’ Let him investigate and we are interested to the shooting of black people in America,” Duterte told police in a camp visit in General Santos City.

Carolina Governor Pat McCrory called for a state of emergency in Charlotte on Wednesday night after violence escalated as residents continue to protest the shooting of an African-American man by police.

Duterte hit the US for its intention to lecture him over human rights while "black" people in America are suffering.

"I said, America [keeps on insisting to bring up] human rights. Now, Charlotte [has declared] state of emergency," he said.

"Meaning, before you condemn, [make sure you have untainted reputation]. You know, men judge best when they condemn," Duterte added. (Sunnex)
