The Philippine president-elect Rodrigo Duterte has said corrupt journalists are legitimate targets of assassination. Should the U.N. step in?
  • Yes, the U.N. should step in.

    I believe the U.N. should step in with this situation of Pilippine president-elect Rodrigo Duterte saying corrupt journalists are reasonable targets for assassination. First off, anyone with that view will also have a warped perception of "corrupt". Secondly, regardless of being corrupt or not, that is not grounds for being killed.

  • Hate speech is powerful.

    I feel that the U.N. is there for a reason and when you have a leader of a country claiming that it is okay to assassinate a certain group of people that is very dangerous and that person needs to be removed from office. There is too much violence in this world without adding fuel to the fire. I'm not sure what the U.N. is supposed to do but they should at least address it.

  • The U.N. should step in against Rodrigo Duterte

    The United Nations should intervene against Philippine president-elect Rodrigo Duterte after he said corrupt journalists are legitimate targets of assassination. This is a clear breach of a potential free speech where political enemies could be killed. It is overreacting and the punishment does not fit the crime. The United Nations should take proactive action instead of waiting for a full-blown humanitarian crisis.

  • The U.N. doesn't need to get involved.

    No one deserves to be the target of an assassination. However, protecting journalists who are corrupt does not need to be one of the top priorities of the United Nations right now. They need to be more concerned with major, serious issues that affect millions of people throughout the globe.
