So you've never drank with an LinC member...:P

Also, I might add to my comment above, I had to work a few years  after 2013 100% back in Europe, but I am currently on a 50/50 scheme (could go back to 100% scheme to the Phil or with DU30 the other way if companies pull out at this rate, but I like the setup at the moment).

Bwahahahahaha!

Metro Cebu with millions of people, has more crime than sparsely populated, largely rural regions/areas of the country?!

Gee, who'd of thought! What a revelation for the ages! Shocking, simply shocking, I tell you!

Let's all have a pants pissing party at the homes of expats who are worried/stressing about crime in the Philippines!

Companies were pulling out long before Duterte got in office.

Don't engage in illegal activities in the Philippines and you should have nothing to fear from the government.

Duterte understands the need for foreign tourists/residents in the Philippines - he knows the money they spend are important for the economy.

When Duterte was mayor of Davao City, one of the quickest ways for a Filipino street criminal to get himself killed was to go out and rob and steal from foreign tourists. Over the years, hundreds of street criminals who committed robberies and thefts in Davao City ended up taking dirtnaps - typically administered by two guys on a motorcycle,  via a few shots from a .45 or 9mm.

Of course I'm not claiming or even suggesting that Duterte gave the kill orders himself. But during his tenure as mayor, it's a verifiable fact that street criminals often didn't have long life spans.

Crimes in Cebu Fewer in First 5 Months of 2018

CEBU Province was relatively peaceful in the first five months of 2018 compared to the same period last year.

Based on the records kept by the police, murder incidents dropped by 29.52 percent in January to May compared to the figures from the same period in 2017.

Supt. Ismael Gauna of the Cebu Provincial Police Office (CPPO) said they recorded 74 murder cases, a decrease of 31 incidents from 105 last year.

He, however, noted a slight increase in homicide cases that totaled 20, three more cases from 17 incidents recorded in 2017.

Guna reported that their crime solution efficiency (CSE) increased to 78.68 percent this year from 69.1 last year. A case is considered solved once a suspect is identified and arrested, and a case is filed against him.

Their crime clearance efficiency (CCE) this year, on the other hand, increased to 84.3 percent from 2017’s 76.85 percent. A case is considered cleared once a suspect has been identified, though not yet arrested or booked.

The index crimes, meanwhile, dropped by 28.85 percent, while non-index crimes decreased by 11.97 percent.

Non-index crimes are the results of police-initiated operations to enforce special laws, such as those on illegal drugs, gambling, loose firearms, and the environment.

Murder and homicide are included in the index crimes, or those committed against persons and properties.

Aside from murder, other index crimes like motorcycle and vehicle thefts, physical injuries, rape, robbery and theft also dropped.

The total crime volume in the province from January to May 2017 totaled 7,025. It dropped by 15.84 percent or 5,912 incidents in the same period this year.

The total number of index crimes from January to May in 2017 totaled to 1,612. For the same period in 2018, police recorded 1,147 index crimes, or a drop of 28.85 percent.

As for non-index crimes, 5,413 were recorded in the first five months of last year and only 4,765 were recorded in the same period this year, or a decrease of 11.97 percent.

CPPO Director Senior Supt. Manuel Javier Abrugena said the province was “generally peaceful” in the first quarter of 2018.

He attributed the decrease of crime volume to checkpoints, mobile patrols, police officers’ interactions with communities and anti-criminality operations.

The crime statistics were shown to the journalists covering the police beat during the first media day of CPPO under Abrugena last Thursday. The Task Force Cebu personnel led by Col. Noel Baluyan were also present.

Last week, Police Regional Office 7 Director Chief Supt. Debold Sinas said they will abide if President Rodrigo Duterte will issue an order instructing police officials to replace local chief executives who failed to lower crime incidents in their respective areas.

Well I see your point. There might be others who sees it differently.  Some might say it gets safer, because the criminals are getting killed (drug dealers etc.), so less criminality due to less drug dealings/activities.

I see it differently - not to your extreme, but also worrisome - I do not see any drop in crime rates (the view is to you can kill anyone unpunished under the cover of "drug related killings" -  when considering even priest get killed)

Animal's hope your name dont make the animal list

For me it really feels "different" here, since the DU30 policies are implemented.

Me too, it feels much safer since he was elected.

Actually my comment was off topic and was not related to Cebu getting safer or not.

I haven't heard any company pulling out because of govt. regulation, since I arrived here for good in 97 (enlighten me - if you refer to Marco's time I really do not know).  Actually, the opposite has happened, govt. regulation attracted many foreign companies.  Maybe some in the mining industry left - but I am not an "expert" in this highly regulated sector (again you can enlighten me).

However, it could happen if DU30 implements some planned regulation (but he needs desperately foreign money - so lets see). That what I was referring to.

Also, foreign money (not companies) is leaving the Philippines due to some policies and inflation/devaluation of peso. On the good side you can see that govt. is taking action and increasing interest rates. Here however some industries like transportation and property sector are starting to suffer (is not good for everybody)

Ya my wife shows me this stuff all the time from her Facebook feed. The pictures are pretty disturbing to say the least. It’s not just happening in Cebu but all over. I was asking her last night about the penal system in PI but she wasn’t sure. Such as large penitentiaries like we have in the West. Arn’t these people doing the killings (I don’t mean police) a little worried about going to prison?

She was also telling me about her aunt who was murdered in the province while gathering food for the animals. Never caught the person. There have also been some other unsolved murders where she’s from. Probably drug related. That crystal meth (shabu) really makes people crazy.

My wife's cousin and two other guys witnessed the hit-man (enforcer) of a local drug lord killing a guy who hadn't paid his bills (for shabu). The three guys just happened to be in the wrong spot at the wrong time. They were spotted by the hit-man. The other two guys are now dead, and my wife's cousin has been in hiding on another island for a few years now. I have no problem with these lowlifes in the drug distribution business being given the same justice that they give others. Prison is too good for them.
