"Let's just do the right thing. Alam natin kung ano ang tama. Hindi tayo ti-nrain sa academy to do what's wrong and illegal," Trillanes said.

According to Trillanes, "General, umiikot 'yung mundo eh. Ngayon, si Duterte naka-pwesto; eh malay natin 'yung susunod na pwesto and priority ay human rights at mgconduct ng investigation, by then retired na kayo at nakatiwangwang mga pulis."

This statement, which was followed by a more detailed warning to the cops about the possibility of an honest-to-goodness investigation, earned the senator the netizens' ire.

For the most part, netizens lambasted the senator for what they see as threats to the Duterte's administration's war on drugs - which, according to them scares off the police officers.
