President Rodrigo Duterte wants to give the boot to at least 3 police superintendents and 60 officers who are allegedly in cahoots with crime gangs.

"Mga 3 superintendent, minimum of 60 police, umalis kayo sa PNP. I am starting the purging," Duterte said during the 39th birthday bash of Senator Emmanuel Pacquiao in General Santos City.

"I'm just warning itong mga pulis na kurakot... talagang hihiritan ko kayo, babantayan ko kayo. Kayong mga gangster na nasa pulis gobyerno, medyo may takot ako na 'pag wala kayo sa gobyerno, iyung baril ninyo, nalaman ninyo, then you start to bed, makitulog ka na sa mga gangster."

Duterte previously dismissed from police service 2 ranking officials he had accused of protecting the illegal drug trade.
