During the term of the current mayor, Davao has become known not only around the country, but around the world as ground zero for vigilante style justice in the Philippines. Approximately 900 killings in 10 years, unsolved. This past January 2009, more than one victim was found daily, with lackluster investigation and no prosecutions. I have posted 2 news clips about this. Click on the title of this post to view one, and the previous post for the other. Please be advised these contain stark images of victims and may not be appropriate for children.
