One netizen urged the government to focus more on alleviating poverty in order to lessen crimes in the country.
“Kahit ang dami ng napatay na kawatan sa summary killings, malakas pa rin loob ng mga holdaper at ibang uri ng kriminal. Dapat talaga tutukan ang kahirapan at pagpaparami ng trabaho,” the social media user posted.
(Even though many people have become victims of summary killings, hold-uppers and other criminals are still unafraid to commit crimes. The government should really focus on poverty and increasing job opportunities for Filipinos.)
Other netizens also advised the police to increase their presence and visibility in public areas in order to discourage criminals from victimizing citizens.
