Erin Tañada: Conviction of 3 cops who killed Kian ‘warning shot’ vs summary executions

Dec 4, 2018 @ 19:47

Senatorial candidate Erin Tañada said the conviction of the three policemen for killing 17-year-old Kian delos Santos in an anti-illegal drug operation last August 2017 is a “warning shot against those who take legal shortcuts.”

The three cops were sentenced to life in prison.

“No bad deed will be forever hidden in darkness,” Tañada said.

“The dawn of justice will come to those who perished in the night,” he added.

Tañada also said he hopes the decision will prevent more summary executions in the future.

“May this court decision reverse all justifications for summary executions and propensity to just kill anybody who will be found violating the law,” Tañada said.
