Philippine bishops launch ‘thou shalt not kill’ campaign
July 26, 2016
The Philippine bishops have begun a “thou shalt not kill” campaign to counter extrajudicial killings of suspected criminals, the Philippine Star reported.
“You cannot get rid of crime if you will commit another crime,” Auxiliary Bishop Broderick Pabillo of Manila said at the Mass opening the campaign. “Since May, 400 people have been killed … That is a big crime statistic.”
