Duterte on what to do if you have noisy, karaoke-singing neighbors: Sunugin mo jukebox pati mga singer!
President Rodrigo Duterte said that one of the reasons why he imposed a curfew when he was Davao City mayor was to make sure all residents would have a good night’s sleep.
“Sa Davao, at 12 o’clock alam ninyo it’s a… Wala na. Walang activity. Walang inuman, walang naninigarilyo. Wala lahat. Tulog tayo. Jukebox? Hanggang 8:30 ka lang because people have to sleep,” said Duterte in a speech before mayors in Manila.
“Sabihin mo, huwag ‘yang jukebox. Kasi you create a nuisance. It’s against the law actually. But since you are very kind, sinabi ko na huwag na lang ‘pag after this hour, lalo na 9 o’clock,” he added.
But if your neighbors refuse to heed your request, Duterte advised that you get his or her noise machine and burn it.
“Everybody has go to sleep. Tapos meron ka diyan in the middle of the squatter’s area. [mimics singing] Sabihin mo, ‘pag hindi pa (huminto) kunin mo. Sunugin mo sa harap nila, ‘di tapos,” said Duterte.
“Iyong neighbors ninyo dito, mahirap lang, pobre. Iyong iba nagbo-boarding lang nga diyan sa inyo tapos mag-jukebox ka. Sabi ko sa pulis, ‘Sunugin mo ‘yang jukebox na ‘yan. Mag-demanda, pati siya sunugin mo’. P***** i** ‘yan ang gusto… Eh ayaw ninyo nang pakiusapan na tarong,” he added.
