    I've heard/read of discussions about this from friends/ colleagues when it was still a bill. It's not good, and that's all I'm going to say about it....

    “Terrorism, as we often said, strikes any time and anywhere. It is a crime against the people and humanity; thus, the fight against terrorism requires a comprehensive approach to contain the terrorist threat,” Roque said.
    The bill allows the police to conduct warrantless arrests and keep suspected terrorists detained for 14 days, extendable by another 10 days, to allow authorities to build a case and to stop any planned criminal activities.
    The new measure in effect repeals the 2007 Human Security Act.
    Roque said the enactment of the law “demonstrates our serious commitment to stamp out terrorism, which has long plagued the country and has caused unimaginable grief and horror to many of our people.”
    Only terrorism I hear about in the Phills is people getting summarily executed for trumped-up drugs charges.

    Disturbing development.
