She shared this sentiment during the 12th National Empowerment Conference of the National Federation of Filipino American Associations.
It was not the first time Robredo spoke out against extrajudicial killings. “There have been a few voices already out there against extrajudicial killings, but I think that public outcry is not there yet.

“There is already a pervading culture of impunity, and not only that, but if you look at social media, it also seems like there is a culture of hatred already.” She thinks that this started during the campaign period.
