"Sobrang insulto na ang ginagawa nila sa atin eh. Ginagawa tayong mukhang tanga na paliwanag na lang sila nang paliwanag, 'hindi totoo 'yan' pero patay pa rin sila nang patay... It's a bloody war that is going on, ang dami pa ring namamatay pero sasabihin nila hindi naman policy 'yan eh," she added.
"So basta ba magsasalita siya ng ganyan at maniniwala tayo? Bakit nila hindi ilabas lahat, katulad ng sinasabi ni Chito Gascon, ilabas n'yo lahat ng folders ninyo, katulad ng sinasabi ng Senado, ilabas niyo lahat ng spot reports ninyo," Rosales said.
Emotional and in tears, Dela Rosa protested against the lady senator staking his life on the line.
"I swore on my life, the President did not order me to kill drug suspects," the PNP chief said during a Senate probe on another teenager who was killed by police officers in Caloocan. He also stated that if Sen. Risa Hontiveros accusations are true, he himself will resign from his post and return to Davao City.
The PNP chief was very much offended and hurt by her statements and asked the senator how else could he defend thousands of policemen who are just trying to do their jobs. He also said that Hontiveros' mind is already closed to facts and only believes in what she wanted to believe.
Hontiveros indirectly blamed President Rodrigo Duterte for the so-called extra judicial killings and claiming that it was him who gave directives to the PNP to kill drug suspects.
"I am grieving for the majority of my men na nakataya ang buhay nila tapos i-accuse n'yo kami ng polisya na ganun. Masakit. Masakit, your honor," Dela Rosa told Hontiveros during the hearing.
"Andyan si Lord, nakikita niya. I'm willing to go back to Davao City 'pag na-prove mo 'yan," Dela Rosa added. "You know me personally, your honor. 'Di ako papayag na gagamitin ang pulis sa masama."
Dela Rosa argued that never did the President gave them such directives.
