Statement re Duterte's statement that someday somebody will shoot me (Trillanes):

During my entire public life, I have stood up and fought against the crooked, the corrupt, the oppressors and abusers of power like Duterte. I have never bullied the helpless and innocent.

Now, as to his threat that somebody would shoot me someday, only Duterte would want me dead because it irks him that somebody dared to stand toe to toe with him. My standing up to him makes him look weak and powerless, which is contrary to his objective of making the whole Filipino society afraid of him.

Go ahead, Mr. Duterte, order somebody to shoot me and, I assure you, it would lead to your end.
