The Philippine president-elect has a new program to fight crime.

President-elect Rodrigo Duterte said people should go after drug dealers themselves.

In a speech, he said people with guns should shoot and kill drug dealers who refuse to be taken to a police station. The same is true, he said, if drug dealers threaten people with a gun or a knife.

'Please feel free to call us, the police, or do it yourself if you have a gun ... you have my support,' Duterte said. 'Shoot him, and I'll give you a medal.'

His speech was reported on by the Associated Press.

Duterte won the May 9 presidential election on a promise to end crime and corruption within six months of taking office.

But his tough talk during and immediately after the presidential election has alarmed some. Human rights groups said that citizens could use the president’s words to kill people they don’t like by saying they were drug dealers.

Rafendi Djamin is Amnesty International’s Director for South East Asia and the Pacific. “As leader of the Philippines, the president-elect must protect and uphold human rights, not reject them,” he said. “That includes the right to life, due process and fair trial.'

As the longtime mayor of Davao City, Duterte put in tough penalties for crime. But Human Rights Watch said he went too far, using death squads to kill more than 1,000 people.
