This issue began with what happened to the young Kian delos Santos.
And since it was a big concern for the entire nation, Dingdong was also asked for his own view on this issue, as the Chairman of the National Youth Commission.
Dingdong said, “While I believe that the drug problem is really a menace to our society, it should not be fought at the expense of lives.
“Any life: a policeman’s life, a bystander’s life anyone; especially a young person’s life. Kian was 17 years old.
“Based on our studies in the National Youth Commission, he belonged to the child youth bracket, the one we consider the most vulnerable.
“He could have been the next best policeman of his city or president of the country. But he was not given the chance anymore to do so.
“I would want to believe that with this incident, right now, we all agree on one thing that it is wrong.” shared the National Youth Commission chair.
Marian also shared her thoughts when the press asked her about it, “Siyempre, sino ba naman ang matutuwa na may ganyang nangyayari sa mundo, parang ang gulo-gulo ng mundo?”, she said.
