Duterte’s Death Squad” would be assigned to transport terminals, eateries and other public places to kill suspected rebels and even loiterers and junkies.
“I will create my own Sparrow. Walang hanapin kundi mga istambay na mga tao, prospective NPAs at bibirahin sila (They will look mainly for idlers, prospective NPAs and kill them),” the President said during the turnover ceremony of housing units to members of the Armed Forces of the Philippines and the Philippine National Police (PNP) in Bohol.
“I will match their talent in assassinating people. They have firearms, for sure. That’s my plan,” Duterte added.

The President said he would be satisfied if each member of the armed unit can identify one or two NPA rebels for liquidation.

The President been frustrated with the communists, despite talking for peace, they continue to kill members of the AFP and PNP kill soldiers and policemen.

“What I lack is a sparrow unit. That’s their advantage... So I will create a sparrow – Duterte Death Squad against the sparrow. There’s no problem. They are the enemies,” Pres. Duterte said.
The President gave advice to his troops, to be careful whenever they leave their respective camps, and a directive for government troops to shoot drug suspects if they feel that their life is in danger.
“If they resist violently... if you believe your life is in danger, shoot. If you believe in good faith, son of a b****, they will shoot you. If you are behind that animal, shoot him,” Duterte said.
