I am numbed by the cold-blooded murder of Reynaldo de Guzman. Inflicting thirty stab wounds that led to a slow death for the 14-year old kid is VERY SICKENING!

Three consecutive killings of minors in a few weeks time and obviously through execution-style is ENOUGH! We will not allow the war against illegal drugs be exploited by butchers and monsters. We will not allow these culprits to be left unpunished!

I reiterate that the war on drugs strategy, Oplan Double Barrel, needs to be re-evaluated. We cannot win the war if bodies continue to pile up compared to the lives being changed through rehabilitation.

In the Senate, we will ensure that the truth will not be silenced. There will be no sacred cows in the investigations of these killings.
