The Philippine’s president said he accepts responsibility for the thousands of killings committed during police operations against drugs, adding that he was even ready to go to jail. President Rodrigo televised remarks Monday night were typical of his bluster — and tempered by the fact that he has pulled his country out of the International Criminal Court, where a prosecutor is considering complaints related to the leader’s bloody campaign. The remarks were also a clear acknowledgement that Duterte could face a deluge of criminal charges.
