A senator in the Philippines pushed for the death penalty a new after a policeman shot dead an unarmed mother and son in Paniqui, Tarlac. 

In a GMA News Online report, Senator Ronaldo ‘Bato’ dela Rosa said the police officer could have been punished with the death penalty. 

“Ayaw nila ng death penalty eh! Yung ginawa ng pulis na cold-blooded killing is double murder and heinous crime na dapat ang parusa ay death penalty pero hanggang ngayon hirap na hirap pa ring umusad yung in-author kong death penalty bill,” the former chief of the Philippine National Police said. 

“Sino pa ang gustong pumatay ng tao kung alam niyang papatayin din siya via death penalty?” he asked. 

Senator Manny Pacquiao has earlier reiterated that the death penalty would prevent people from committing heinous crimes. 

The death penalty was abolished in 2006 during the Arroyo administration. 

“Alam kasi ng mga kriminal at mga utak kriminal na makukulong lamang sila kapag gumawa sila ng karumal-dumal na krimen. Bigyan sana ulit natin ng pagkakataon itong death penalty dahil sa tingin ko, ito na lang ang kulang upang magiging mabilis at epektibo ang ating pagbibigay ng hustisya sa ating kababayang biktima ng heinous crimes,” he said.
