73% of Filipinos worried they would be EJK’d

Published

By Ellalyn De Vera-Ruiz 

Seven in 10 Filipinos are worried they would become victims of extrajudicial killings, a Social Weather Stations (SWS) special report on the government’s anti-drug campaign showed on Thursday.

In the nationwide survey conducted among 1,200 respondents last June 23-26, 73 percent (41 percent “very worried,” 32 percent “somewhat worried”) expressed worries they, or anyone they know, would be a victim of extrajudicial killing.

Only 13 percent said they are “not too worried” and 14 percent answered “not worried at all.”

Filipinos in all areas were worried about getting victimized by extrajudicial killing, with the highest proportion coming from Visayas at 77 percent (48 percent very worried, 29 percent somewhat worried), followed by Mindanao at 75 percent (46 percent very worried, 29 percent somewhat worried), Metro Manila at 73 percent (34 percent very worried, 40 percent somewhat worried), and rest of Luzon at 70 percent (37 percent very worried, 33 percent somewhat worried.

In the same survey, SWS found 90 percent of the population saying it is important to capture drug suspects alive (68 percent “very important,” 22 percent “somewhat important”).

It was statistically the same as the 92 percent (66 percent very important, 26 percent somewhat important) in March 2017. It was 94 percent in both the September 2016 and December 2016 surveys.

The highest proportion of those saying drug suspects should be captured alive came from Metro Manila at 95 percent (77 percent very important, 18 percent somewhat important), followed by Visayas at 90 percent (68 percent very important, 22 percent somewhat important), rest of Luzon at 90 percent (67 percent very important, 22 percent somewhat important), and Mindanao at 86 percent (64 percent very important, 22 percent somewhat important).

The respondents were also asked about their opinion regarding the administration’s seriousness in solving the problem of extrajudicial killings in the country.

Thirty-three percent answered that the Duterte administration is “very serious,” 30 percent said “somewhat serious,” and 23 percent were “undecided if serious or not serious.”

Meanwhile, nine percent said “the government is “somewhat not serious,” and five percent answered “not serious at all” in stopping extrajudicial killings.

SWS noted that this compares to March 2017, when 34 percent answered very serious, 36 percent somewhat serious, 22 percent undecided if serious or not serious, 5 percent somewhat not serious, and 4 percent not serious at all.

Belief in the Duterte administration’s seriousness to solve the problem on extrajudicial killings was highest in the Visayas at 68 percent (44 percent very serious, 24 percent somewhat serious), followed by the rest of Luzon at 64 percent (29 percent very serious, 35 percent somewhat serious), Metro Manila at 62 percent (31 percent very serious, 31 percent somewhat serious), and Mindanao at 59 percent 34 percent very serious, 25 percent somewhat serious).

SWS reiterated that the  surveys on the administration’s campaign against illegal drugs and on extrajudicial killings were non-commissioned and that they were included on SWS’s own initiative and released as a public service

    wrong statistics …. 75% filipinos support the war on drugs …. if someone involved in shabu then he’s subject for EJK from police (maybe) or from his colleague shabu syndicate or from riding in tandem assassin … but from police EJK is hard to prove since police always said they (suspects) resisting arrest with violent fight with the police ….

      But the question in the survey is not approval on war on Drugs (which never worked in any country that tried it), but rather on the fear of the people being mistaken as a suspect and shot. Bigyan kita piso bili ka ng comprehension skills

      • armando villegas

        good comprehension will determine on facts and not in hearsay

  • ramon

    ginawa nyo n sanang 100% nahiya p kayong mga animal kayo…hindi ko alam paano nyo nakuha ung mga survey nyong ganyan…

      Raming satsat, basta si Duterte duwag, walang bayag. Takot sa ballpen at sa waiver. Hahahaha kahit ganong ka “annoying” ni Trillanes, at least mas may bayag siya kaysa kay Duterte (he who fears the ballpen waiver) >.<

      • armando villegas

        sabihan mo muna si noynoy mo bakit di siya pumirma sa bank waiver noon na gusto ni trillanes

        • Guest

          ^raming excuses puro deflect sa past. Kung tunay na may bayag si Duterte at si Noynoy wala, dapat kaya ni Duterte mag sign ng waiver, para talong talo ang mga Trillanes, Noynoy at LP na yan. Instead puro excuses. Taena Duterte puro yabang walang bayag LOL

  • txslim55

    If your really scared an not just bs=talk, impeach the one responsible for the EJK’s, DoDirty

  • hot mama

    the 27% belong to the group of hitman and dabaw group? or the nyetang pinoy who loves killing as well

  • johnny wang

    The people should wake up before it is to late or before one of their near and dear ones meet the same fate of the innocent victims killed in this manner

  • Melenggay Laranery

    They are worried and yet this President is still sitting? Filipinos don’t know what is good for them.

  • mockingjay123

    Binoto nyo yan, kaya pagdusahan ninyo! Lalo kayong mga nasa Metro Manila, iyan ginusto ninyo, di ba.

  • Dale Bryan

    I think the way the question was presented being two pronged and broad in scope will be open for debate as to the conclusion drawn. Because if you get an 80% approval rating and merge this with rhe new survey it means people are not aftaid rather approve the so called ejk ( still unproven) as a policy of adminstration by pres. Duterte.

    1. Bayaraan na commenters lang to (not surprising)

    2. Wala na talagang utak (baka na tunaw ng fentanyl ni Peter Lim)

    Para sa mga Duterte fanatics di totoo itong survey dahil di pabor kay Duterte.. Pero kung may survey na nagsasabing 98 percent nga nakatira sa Planet mars suporta kay duterte, paniniwalaan nila dahil pabor kay duterte..

    Remember class, kung pabor kay duterte automatic true…

    kung di pabor kay duterte, biased…

    Di ang SWS or ABS CBN or Inquirer ang Biased, Kayo ang biased. lol
