"For the law-abiding citizen of this country, I am addressing you with all sincerity. Huwag ho kayong matakot kung hindi ka terorista. Kung hindi ka naman sisirain mo ang gobyerno, pasabugin mo ang simbahan, pasabugin mo 'yung public utilities, pasabugin mo 'yung, just to derail, matumba na tuloy ang bayan," Duterte said.
(For the law-abiding citizen of this country, I am addressing you with all sincerity. You should not be afraid if you are not a terrorist. If you are not going to destroy the government, or blow up a church, blow up public utilities, just to derail, topple the government.)
"Kung wala mangyari na masama, wala namang problema (If nothing bad happens, then there is no problem). Pero (But) once you blow up simbahan, blow up mo 'yung marketplace. The right to defend itself accrues to the government heavily," the President added.

He also said the state has the right to defend itself against terrorists, especially those who kill people "wantonly".
"If you do that to the people, if you kill them wantonly, then I would take it as a right to kill you," Duterte said.
